NFL DFS Week 7 optimal lineup

Devising the perfect Daily Fantasy Sports strategy for the NFL can be a challenge, which is why I'm here to assist.

On DraftKings, it's important to remember you're playing full-point PPR with bonuses if a player surpasses 300 passing yards, 100 rushing yards or 100 receiving yards.

Here is my optimal lineup for Sunday's $3.5 million Fantasy Football Millionaire contest, but can be utilized as a foundation in other games and platforms.

All prices listed are courtesy of DraftKings with a $50,000 budget.

— QB: Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($8,400)

Kyler Murray, Russell Wilson and Josh Allen have all torched the Titans secondary this season. Mahomes has 740 passing yards and seven total touchdowns in two career games against Tennessee.


— RB: Derrick Henry, Titans ($9,200)

Henry leads the NFL in rushing yards with 783 in only six games. He'd still be first if we only counted his yards after contact (587). Pay the premium unless you possess the fortitude to fade him against a very bad Chiefs defense.

— RB: Miles Sanders, Eagles ($5,100)

Sanders is the ideal squeaky-wheel candidate and the Raiders have allowed 510 yards after contact (eighth-most), seven touchdowns (fifth-most) and 23 runs of 10-plus yards (third-most) to running backs.
