This is where Awesemo’s NHL DFS Projections and NHL Ownership Projections meet. You know who the highest-projected plays are, and you know who’s going to be highly-owned on an individual level. However, in NHL DFS tournaments, stacking is almost a necessity. The NHL Top Stacks Tool allows you to estimate the chances of a three-player line stack being in the winning lineup as well as its estimated ownership. One valuable column that you’ll want to check out is the leverage column. This is the difference in the Top Stack percentage compared to the ownership percentage of a given stack. Using Awesemo’s NHL Top Stacks Tool is the easiest way to identify if a stack is going over- or under-owned by the field on a given slate.
Nathan MacKinnon and the Avalanche top line may be a highly-owned stack, but that doesn’t mean they’re over-owned! Despite their ownership, they were still the most under-owned stack on this slate according to Awesemo’s NHL Top Stacks Tool. Looking at Dallas’ second of Pavelski – Gurianov – Janmark, you can see that they were projected for 15.7% ownership (mostly because of their low price), but their actual chances of being in the winning lineup were about half of that ownership (7.7%), which would make them an over-owned stack that you might look to avoid in tournaments. Whether you’re building 150 in an optimizer or building by hand, the Top Stacks Tool is as valuable a tool as we offer for NHL DFS!
