In the Week 10 DFS MVP Podcast, I discussed how changes in the skill level of cash game players might favor a lineup-building approach that is more volatile than traditional cash game ideals might recommend. I used FanDuel scoring as an example and while the scoring data for DraftKings isn’t available, I’d infer that we can probably implement a similar strategy to our cash games on DK, maybe even more so.

Because DraftKings awards players who see high volume, stacking teammates in cash games, especially those in very concentrated offenses or with superior matchups, might not just be viable, but optimal. With yardage bonuses and full-PPR scoring, the worry of losing out on touchdown upside to teammates is mitigated. Week 11 lends itself to this very concept.

As always, be sure to take a look at the “Other Players I’d Consider” section, as you should never be blindly placing a single lineup into any contest.
