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 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 $230, so I'm in the black $30 through 11 weeks.

— QB: Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs ($8,200)


Mahomes has at least 329 passing yards in five straight games with at least three touchdown passes in six of 10 games this season. He's well on his way to his second NFL MVP Award.

— RB: Kenneth Walker, Seahawks ($6,900)

In Walker's last six games (five starts) before Seattle's bye, he was tied for first in 10-plus-yard rushes (12), tied for third in missed tackles forced (19) and tied for ninth in yards after contact per attempt (3.59), according to Pro Football Focus. Running backs have averaged 149 total yards with almost seven receptions per game and scored 10 TDs against the Raiders this season.

— RB: Rachaad White, Buccaneers ($5,100)
