DraftKings NFL Week 5 Millionaire Maker Picks

There is no shortage of potential stacks worth targeting here for the DraftKings NFL Week 5 Millionaire Maker. We will share the stack we ended up rolling with shortly, but a close runner-up was Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase. With Jaire Alexander out, the Packers are now arguably a bottom-five secondary in the NFL. The running back position is a mess this week on DraftKings with a ton of players questionable and their backups extremely overpriced. Derrick Henry is the clear number one, but with 113 carries in four weeks and a cake matchup, there is a chance the Titans…

Our custom strength of schedule cheat sheet releases each year the week before training camp starts.

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. In total, 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.

While we typically release weekly articles throughout the NFL and CFB regular seasons, our staff puts out DFS content year-round. This includes season-long rankings and sleepers, NBA and CBB fantasy lineups and betting strategy, and reviews and promotions for the top fantasy websites and sportsbooks.

As a bonus to Hello Rookie readers and listeners, you will receive a free entry into each of DraftKings Millionaire Makers throughout the 2021 NFL playoffs when 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, we have offered more fantasy CFB than any other site over the past decade. This includes season-long CFB rankings, weekly CFB DFS articles, and betting guides throughout the college football season. 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.

Betting sites like Caesars and PointsBet are already live in a handful of states with several more set to launch in 2021. Our goal here at Hello Rookie is to help you beat these sportsbooks and our weekly picks articles do just that.

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.
