Sample FanDuel Lineups
FanDuel Lineup Configurations
Cash – FanDuel is full of value, which allowed me to use a Ward/Ayers stack, which is likely the safest on the slate. I also was about to use Pittman, Dayes, and Samuels, who are three of the safest players on this slate. Sutton is a bit underpriced, which allowed me to play Reaves, who has been playing well recently.
GPP – There really isn’t any reason to avoid Ward on FanDuel, as there is plenty of value at other positions. I used a QB/2WR stack with him, while adding Dayes and Smith at running back. They each have loads of upside. I used Samuels, who is the best tight end on the slate, and Thomas was the last piece to fit. He is coming off a couple of huge games and has loads of upside.
Sample Draftkings Lineups
Draftkings Lineup Configurations
Cash – Ward is the best player on the slate, which is why I started this team with him. I also used a high upside USMS QB/WR combo. I ended with 4 players from Marshall, as they get a good matchup and are fairly cheap. I paid up for my RBs, who are both consistent, while using Malleck as a salary relief option with good touchdown upside.
GPP – It may be a mistake to avoid Ward, but it will help your salary and separate your team in GPPs. The two QB/WR combos both provide more than enough upside to cancel out not using Ward if they can both hit their ceiling. Mallack was a salary relief option, which allowed me to use players like Dayes and Samuels, who have had consistent upside all season. Smith is a high upside back who is cheap and allowed Ayers to fit into the lineup.
A very simple, but good start to DFS research is to look at the over/unders and odds. Obviously you want your players in games where Vegas believes the game will be high scoring and on winning teams, while your defenses should come from games they believe will be low scoring.
