DraftKings Cash Game Lineups

Since you’re usually playing against smaller fields in cash games, and don’t have to place first to win money, the strategy for building cash lineups is to target players that produce consistent fantasy value.

Stay away from risky plays, and go with more proven situations. Here’s a list of recommended players for this weeks DraftKings Main Slate of Cash Games.

DraftKings GPP Tournament Lineups

In contrast to cash, your strategy changes when building GPP (Guaranteed Prize Pool) lineups where you have to beat out thousands of players to get a shot at winning big prizes. In these types of tournaments you’re targeting players that have high-upside for the week.

These risky BOOM/BUST plays may not always hit, but when they do you have the potential to stack up that cash! Here is a list of recommended FanDuel GPP Tournament Players for this weeks main slate of games.
