Since Week 1 2020, only two other Millionaire winners used an unstacked quarterback, however, both of those quarterbacks rushed for at least 50 yards and at least one touchdown.

Flex

Top-1% lineups flexed a tight end 18% of the time, compared to 30% for the whole field. Prior to Week 11, the highest rate of tight ends in the flex this year was 21%. Lineups in the top 1% flexed a wide receiver 46% of the time and running back 36% of the time, compared to 41% and 29% for the field.

Leverage/Unique Builds

Other than not stacking the quarterback—which itself is a way to be unique—Khalil Shakir was a salary pivot off of Rondale Moore, who had a similar salary at 19% ownership. Shakir also added correlation with Dalton Kincaid in a lineup that didn’t correlate with the quarterback.

Leverage/Unique Builds

Playing George Kittle added a unique element to a relatively popular stack of Brock Purdy and Brandon Aiyuk. Paying all the way up at tight end led to a unique roster construction in a week where none of the four tight ends priced at $6,000 or above projected for double-digit ownership.

Most teams that punted wide receiver did so with Cardinals or Texans players, making Khalil Shakir a price pivot off of those players.
