FanDuel Cash Lineups

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.

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 weeks FanDuel GPP Tournaments main slate of games.
