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 $4 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 ($7,900)

Kansas City is coming off a mini-bye week, which favors Andy Reid and Mahomes has absolutely owned Gus Bradley's defenses with 17 touchdowns against only two interceptions in seven games — he's completed 68% of his passes for 966 yards and nine TDs (zero interceptions) in their last three meetings.


— RB: D'Andre Swift, Lions ($7,200)

The Vikings have allowed 310 total yards with a TD and 13 receptions to running backs in the first two games. Swift produced 104 total yards with a TD and six receptions in his only start against Minnesota last season.

— RB: Dameon Pierce, Texans ($5,000)

The Bears have allowed the fifth-most rushing yards (256) to running backs this season and a staggering 5.3 yards per carry.
