Before you set your lineups on DraftKings, take a look at some of the preferred plays at each position this weekend and a sample lineup to use in your tournaments this weekend!
DraftKings hosting a $1.25 Million Dollar Tournament this week. Here are some of the contest details:

The Thursday night game is not included either so you have until Sunday at 1PM to set your lineup. You can also make individual game time changes for players in the later games.
Let’s recap Week 9 before we move on to a quick Week 10 breakdown.
WEEK 9 HITS
WEEK 9 MISSES
There are a few strategies to employ this week. I will surround my team around Patriots, Packers, and Jaguars’ stacks. Here are the top three connections:
This is the toughest position for me to fill this week. I don’t have a stone-cold pick at running back this week so I will look for a few cheap options to fill my lineup once the rest of it is locked in.
I was left with the following plays:
Darren McFadden – $4,900 – matchup isn’t great, but he can overcome
James Starks – $4,900 – new starting RB, limit expectations, but can do the job
LeGarrette Blount – $4,900 – only fear is Brady will throw all game
Tournament Play: Shane Vereen – $4,300 – vs. former team, Pats will focus on ODB
I have no problem locking in two of these RBs and then stacking up a few WRs to match your QB.
I mentioned this in the quarterback’s section, but I will be stacking WRs this week.
*I would only take 2 receiving options and Gronkowski is one of them. So only pick one Patriot WR.
Keep an eye on the Allen Hurns injury. If he is out, Robinson should be a sure-fire pick, but could have high ownership.
This could be the week Rob Gronkowski ($8,000) goes bananas. It will cost you a hefty salary, but if you can save on RBs and at another position, it could pay off. The Giants are one of the weakest teams in the league against tight ends and this game has the makings of a Tom Brady shootout.
There is not a significant drop off in the price of the defenses that I would consider this week. Rams ($3,600) & Packers ($3,200) would be my two selections and at these salaries, I will lean towards St. Louis.
Mix and match with the players noted in this article to build a lineup this week. For example, McFadden could replace Starks if you do not want to load up on four Packers.
