I haven’t been having as strong of a Draft Kings showing as I did last year. I don’t know what the difference really is yet and that’s what I’ve been trying to figure out through trial and error. This week, I went with 1 completely random team (Team 1) and then 2 teams that rely heavily on one particular team (Teams 2 and 3). I did that because I really like the matchups and I hope that there is enough offense to go around for everybody, but it’s a dangerous game. For example, last week all of the Lions TD’s went to Marvin Jones instead of Kenny Golladay, which really screwed me. I’m praying to the Fantasy Gods that this doesn’t happen again.

As for what players I think will have good weeks and played in multiple lineups, I think it’s pretty obvious. Dalvin Cook, Leonard Fournette, Kenny Golladay, Danny Amendola and Cole Beasley (Both just salary moves) and Patriots Defense. So basically, it’s all or nothing this week depending on how those players perform.

Well that’s it. I did this really quick on my break so I don’t have a lot of time to shoot the breeze about scenarios that probably won’t even happen. I will say this though: These are my least favorite lineups that I’ve made all year. As always, nothing to do now but hope that everybody finds the end zone in Week 8. Good luck everybody.
