New York Islanders Daily Fantasy Star Cal Clutterbuck

It might sound odd at first but former member of the “Best Fourth Line in Hockey” from the New York Islanders is a darling when it comes to daily fantasy.

What if I told you that New York Islanders forward Cal Clutterbuck was a daily fantasy darling? Would you believe me? (You should, I’m setting it up to prove that point).

Daily fantasy is a growing aspect of a North American sports fans interaction with their favorite sport. It turns armchair quarterbacks into potential millionaires. But to do so it isn’t just dumb luck, wannabe winners need to find value and diamonds in the rough.

Cal Clutterbuck represents that diamond in the rough.

The former fourth-liner for the New York Islanders has recently found himself playing on the first line alongside John Tavares. And it’s already paying dividends.

Over two games Clutterbuck has two points playing alongside the team captain. It’s a great turn of events for Clutterbuck. He’s paid his dues doing the dirty work with Casey Cizikas and Matt Martin for a few years.

For those playing Daily Fantasy on Draft Kings Clutterbuck costs a total of $3,800. By adding Clutterbuck to your lineup, you can increase your average spending by $200 per player.

That’s the difference between Ryan Getzlaf ($6,700) and an Artem Anisimov ($6,800) that leads the league in points with 17. Five more than Mr. Getzlaf out of Regina, Saskatchewan. (Sorry, I’m completely immersed in the election right now).

Should you add Clutterbuck to your Daily Fantasy lineup? Yup! So long as he’s playing with John Tavares he’s significantly more dangerous to the opposition and therefore to get you some big points for real cheap.
