Draft Kings Daily Hockey Challenges for March 28
The Fantasy Fix and Draft Kings have partnered together to give you the best fantasy and gaming experience, offering hockey fans two games to play via Draft Kings. Their ‘One-Timer’ and ‘Daily Dollar’ games offer affordable, competitive fun with payouts suitable for the beginner and the seasoned veteran.
The gist is simple: pay to play, play to win. One top five finish can sufficiently supply your gaming fix for weeks. The small buy-in amount ($5) makes it easy to spend a small amount to see how good you are at crafting your best hockey team. Speaking of teams, building your team is simple. Your team will consist of a starting five (C-LW-RW-D-D), a goalie, and three utility positions. Those three spots can be filled with any position that is not a netminder.
The one restriction you do have is the amount of money allotted to spend on filling your roster. Your total to fill nine positions is $50,000. To learn more about the scoring system and the nuts and bolts of games, check out the page linked here.

Here is my Draft Kings lineup for March 28, which I would use in both formats.
Center: Henrik Zetterberg ($6,100)
Left Wing: James Neal (5,700)
Right Wing: Chris Stewart (5,900)
Defenseman: Alexander Edler (5,600)
Defenseman: Niklas Kronwall (5,100)
Goaltender: Jacob Markstrom (7,400)
Utility: Chris Kunitz (6,500)
Utility: Scott Hartnell (3,900)
Utility: Brian Little (3,800)
I like playing any Pittsburgh Penguins players for the next few games with the late-night blockbuster deal to acquire Jarome Iginla. James Neal has been mediocre without Evegeni Malkin, but that does not mean his lower price tag could produce points. Chris Kunitz has been a stud this season, and should be considered nightly.
I continue with my trend of playing Winnipeg Jets with Brian Little. He has been playing like a top six forward and comes at an amazing price. Chris Stewart was once priced like Little is currently. His play earns him consideration because of his willingness to drop the gloves.
Niklas Kronwall is not getting enough credit for his play, based on his dollar value. He is on the verge of 30 points, and is the most important defenseman for his team. Call that opinion brash, but his play has kept the Detroit ‘D’ corps afloat.
Jacob Markstrom is a huge risk, but his save percentage over the last two weeks is over 92%. I like him stealing a game against an offensively-challenged Buffalo Sabres squad.
There are only 34 spots in the ‘One-Timer’ game, and 57 in the ‘Daily Dollar’ contest. Get in and win some easy money. Look for my roster under jeffrotull44.
