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 $260, so I'm in the black $40 through 12 weeks.
— QB: Joe Burrow, Bengals ($6,900)
The two Kansas City-Cincinnati games from a year ago featured an average of 58 total points. The $1,400 you save by going with Burrow over Patrick Mahomes this week will be invaluable if you're planning to stack this matchup. Burrow has completed 71.1% of his passes, thrown 14 touchdowns against only three interceptions and averaged 307.3 passing yards per game in his last six outings.
— RB: Nick Chubb, Browns ($8,000)
Sometimes life is simple. Chubb is one of the best running backs in the NFL — if not the best this year — and the Texans are allowing the most fantasy points to the position.
— RB: D'Andre Swift, Lions ($5,600)
