Daily Fantasy Football: Week 6 Optimized Lineups

Cam Newton versus the Minnesota secondary? Yes please.

Thanks to Calvin Johnson, us daily fantasy football junkies were left scrambling on Sunday morning for replacements. Hopefully you were able to check out our updated lineups on Sunday as a result.

We had some misses - Tom Brady couldn't throw a thing in that Cincinnati rain, and the cost-effective Alex Smith was barely useful. However, Marshawn Lynch put up a decent game, the Broncos offense continued to roll and Arian Foster was able to compile a nice stat line versus a tough opponent. Our best week? No way. But it could've been a lot worse.

Let's move on to Week 6, shall we?

If you’re unfamiliar, daily fantasy football rewards those who know how to compile stellar weekly fantasy lineups – your mediocre draft doesn’t matter. You’re starting a brand new squad every single week based on salary cap restrictions. It’s time to rejoice Mr. “I forgot to select my second running back until Round 7”.

To help you out with this daily format, we’ve used our massive database and thousands of lines of code to optimize your lineups. Each daily site has unique dollar values associated with each player, so one optimized roster on one site may look different compared to another one.

Luckily for you, we’ve created not one, but five lineups across five different daily sites based on our algorithms. You can find these optimized lineups below.
