DraftKings and FanDuel NFL Week 9 Optimal Lineup

For the second straight week, we identified the winning stack for both the Sunday Million and Millionaire Maker in last week’s article. While our optimal lineup more than tripled-up for the week, the results should have been considerably better. Neither of our bargain plays (Denzel Mims and Josh Reynolds) was able to reach value and Kareem Hunt was a massive disappointment in a great matchup. Here is a look at the winning lineup from a week ago, which Looking forward to this week’s slate, let’s start with implied totals and weather. There are four teams with an implied total above…

DraftKings and FanDuel NFL Week 8 Optimal Lineup

Week eight is typically when we see scores start to drop in the main slate contests on FanDuel and DraftKings, and this week, at least on paper, looks like it will be the lowest-scoring slate to date in 2020. We have six teams on bye this week, and there are only three teams with an implied total of over 26 points.

2020 Fantasy Rankings by Position

Hello Rookie.

Whether you are an actual DFS and sports betting rookie or a seasoned vet, we have something for you. Our set of weekly NFL articles covers each week’s game lines and prop bets, top season-long waiver adds, and our DFS strategy and targets for the week.

We have covered all things daily fantasy sports and sports betting related since the 2013 college football season. We have written 1,500 articles over those seven years, our subscribers have taken down some of the largest contests in the industry, and our community has grown into one of the largest in the industry.

Build better lineups this week with our staff’s optimal NFL Week 7 lineup! This article not only includes a breakdown of how we are building our Millionaire Maker and Sunday Million lineups but the winning lineups from last week as well!

As a bonus to Hello Rookie readers and listeners, you will receive a free entry into the NFL Week 5 Millionaire Maker entry if you register using our DraftKings promo code. We also have the latest and greatest FanDuel promotions, which includes a free entry every week for the rest of the NFL season! Our team works tirelessly throughout the season to bring you the best available promotion for every major DFS and sports betting app.

As far as college football is concerned, the season feels like it will officially start in October with the Big 10 kicking off on October 24th and the Pac-12 targeting an October 31st start date. The tentative plan here is to return to covering fantasy college football around that time as well. Find out if fantasy college football is legal in your state and where you can play.

In addition to the constantly changing legal landscape around fantasy college football and basketball, legal sports betting is slowly rolling out across the United States. You can track if sports betting is legal in your state (and when you can expect it to be legal if it is not) already by visiting our interactive state-by-state guide to legal sports betting.

With the arrival of new, innovative companies like Monkey Knife Fight as well as the continued legalization of sports betting across the United States, we can push out more content than ever. Subscribe to our newsletter and never miss a beat.
