FanDuel Cash Lineups

Since you’re playing against smaller fields in cash games, and usually 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 the risky plays, and go with more proven situations. Here’s a list of recommended players for this weekends FanDuel Cash Games.

FanDuel 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 and low ownership so you can construct unique rosters.

These risky BOOM/BUST plays may not always hit, but when they do you have the potential to stack up that cash! Here’s a list of recommended players for this weekends FanDuel GPP Tournament slates.
