Just like that, Game 4s are already here. There’s been enough games to sense how series are going, which makes picking players for daily fantasy all the more important. Here are our DFS recommendations for May 6, 2022. All totals are for DraftKings DFS lineups.

JeremySwayman – G – $8,200
The Boston Bruins finally got on the board on Friday night, earning their first win of the series in a 4–2 win over the Hurricanes. I like the Bruins odds to even the series in Game 4 at home. The Bruins’ offence finally broke through in Game 3 to the tune of four goals, and they’ll once again be up against a rookie goalie in Pyotr Kochetkov .
The only major change in Game 3 for the Bruins was a switch in net, bringing in rookie Jeremy Swayman for his first career playoff start. The 23-year-old stopped 25 of 27 shots for a .926 save percentage. The Bruins were an impressive 26–13–2 on home ice this season and they’ll have the momentum to even up the series this afternoon. Swayman is a good bet to pick up a win tonight.
Michael Bunting – W – $4,200
Another rookie pick, as the Maple Leafs’ Michael Bunting is finally back healthy and taking his usual spot on the teams dynamite top line. The Leafs have had their way with Tampa Bay’s struggling defence so far this series, and Bunting has taken advantage of that so far this series. At just $4,200 you can’t go wrong with this price.
He’s posted a goal and an assist along with two shots in just around 27 TOI in his first two games of the playoffs. His ice time will only continue to go up as he eases his way back from an injury, and the shots and points should come along with it. Fully set up on the team’s top line, expect Bunting to continue to produce alongside his elite line mates. I like Bunting and the Leafs chances of putting up a bucket of goals again in Game 4. These aren’t the Tampa Bay Lightning of old.
