Friday Mock Lineups - Week 4

Updated: Sep 28, 2019


And the Owl Hive expands!


In our constant quest to expand and develop, we introduce a Friday article that aims to be your final starting point (dibs on that as an album name) when building your DFS lineups this weekend.


I say final starting point because we will be giving you the most up to date information we have, but every Sunday morning it is important to scour Twitter (@Stueast13) for all of the inactives and potential value. Last week it gave us Rex Burkhead at $3900 (47 rush yards, 1 TD, 6 rec, 22 yards = 18.7 DK points).


In this article, however, we are going to give you the basis to build four different kinds of lineups:

  1. A Cash lineup - One full of guaranteed volume, high floors and decent ceilings.

  2. A Tournament lineup - One full of high upside potential and a healthy does of risk.

  3. A Stacked lineup - One that relies on a single game to provide most of its potential.

  4. A Contrarian lineup - One that flies in the face of conventional thought and banks on something crazy happening.

For this segment, and because it is where I spend most of my time, this will be based off of DraftKings pricing. Along with each pick, I will include some quick shorthand for why this player is being played in this spot.


Also, per DraftKings rules, I cannot give out full lineups. For that reason, and because it is important for you to make them your own, I will leave both the Flex and the Defense positions open.


One final reminder, we get $50,000 to spend on each lineup and you should spend it how you see fit. These are merely suggestions and you win the most money when you believe in what you are doing.


So without further ado, here are four lineup starters for you:


Cash Game Lineup


QB Russell Wilson - $6100 - High floor, fast-paced game, turf with the running game lacking

RB Christian McCaffrey - $8800 - High volume, high scoring, opp. bad vs pass catching RBs

RB Wayne Gallman - $4600 - Cheapest starting RB, high volume, high scoring game

WR Cooper Kupp - $6500 - High volume, big target share, opp. funnels to pass, high scoring

WR Tyler Lockett - $6300 - High volume, double digit targets, opp. bad vs pass, high scoring

WR Sammy Watkins - $6700 - High volume, high scoring offense, positive regression coming
