The Cash Game Optimal Lineup Walkthrough is a 4for4 exclusive article that walks you through the process of constructing a lineup that will dominate cash games. Our Value Reports already give you John Paulsen's award-winning projections for every player available each week, and our Lineup Generator allows you to create optimal lineups based on a player pool of the best values. This column works in tandem with the Value Reports and Lineup Generator, giving you a formula to create a winning team.

Each table below fills in five of the nine spots in your lineup. For the remaining four, we give you a few players in the same price range expected to post similar fantasy point totals. They're all strong options, so the choice is yours.

This week, in addition to our walkthrough for FanDual, we have two walkthroughs for DraftKings. The first uses a RB in the flex while the second uses a WR, and both are projected to score similarly.
