NFL DFS Week 12 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.

These lineups have netted $165, so that leaves me $55 in the hole.

— QB: Jalen Hurts, Eagles ($7,300)


Hurts has produced 45 rushing attempts that resulted in a first down or touchdown this season. Only Jonathan Taylor and Derrick Henry have more. Oh, and he's been a top-12 fantasy quarterback in every game where he has played all four quarters — 13 times over the past two seasons.

— RB: Darrell Henderson Jr., Rams ($5,800)

Los Angeles' offense stunk up the joint in its last two games against the Titans and 49ers, so people have likely forgotten how good Henderson has actually been this season. I expect a bounce-back performance for the whole group after its bye week.

— RB: Melvin Gordon, Broncos ($5,300)
