NFL DFS Optimal Lineups: Thanksgiving Day Edition
Howard Bender offers up some examples of Thanksgiving Day lineups for GPP tournaments built using all the tools available to you at Fantasy Alarm.
Remember, everyone. These lineups are for GPP tournaments only. I do not play cash games on a short slate as there is just way too much player overlap which creates higher pay lines. You've got the Playbook, but keep in mind, we may have to dig a little deeper into the player pool in order to fit some guys. We're going to invest heavily in this Saints/Falcons game as the base of our lineups. It will be the highest scoring game on the slate and with all the injuries and issues we are looking at with the first two games, it's definitely safer to put your focus on the late game. That doesn't mean we won't try to have a little fun with some contrarian picks and deep dives.
The key to remember here is to not invest too heavily. I like to stay ion the single-entry contests. The payouts may not be as high, but I'm not going against someone whose algorithm just spit out 150 lineups and they're playing them all. A lot of these GPP tournaments, especially multi-entry one, can be similar...
