 Lineup Building Tips

  • Playing a smaller slate like the early or night slate? (Make sure to select the slate to see the corresponding ownership projections)
  • Spend all your salary! You’ve got a salary cap, so use up as much as you can.
  • Leverage our ownership projections to adjust how chalky or contrarian you want to be. “A” grade player with low ownership? Go for it!
  • Decide whether this lineup is for cash, tournament, or both and tailor your lineup accordingly. You only need to finish in the top 50% for cash so you may not want to go as contrarian as trying to win 1st among a 20,000 entries in a GPP tournament
  • Consider the run totals implied by the Vegas sportsbooks (they’re still in business for a reason)
  • Check out our YouTube channelto learn more about the day’s match-ups, and then again for our live-stream right before lock to have any last-minute questions answered.
  • And lastly, have fun! That’s what DFS is all about!

  • What does an ownership projection or ranking of “X” mean?

This means there doesn’t exist a value yet. While the starting lineups are refreshed almost every second, the same simply cannot be done for our rankings and ownership projections where both are extremely time-intensive processes. There will therefore be intervals when lineups change significantly that these values will be missing and will likely come in the next update.

  • What is the contrarian/chalky rating?

Based on the projected ownership of your lineup, we let you know how we think it compares to other lineups in the field. Playing a top heavy 20k entry GPP? You may want to be more contrarian. Playing a 10 man? You may not need to be as much. The value will change based on the slate size so make sure you choose the correct slate.

  • What is the GPA?

The GPA is a salary-weighted rating of how well you spent your salary. Spending more of your salary will increase this value, along with a proper balance of lower cost value players mixed with expensive stars.

Use our rankings, ownership projections, and articles in congruence with the lineup builder for optimal results.
