Week 13 was rougher than usual for our optimized lineups. No, it's not as though they performed poorly, it was just that a few outlier performances really skewed the results of daily leagues everywhere.
Adrian Peterson proved his worth, rushing for 211 yards against that awful Chicago Bears rush defense. And Brandon Weeden, listed in 40% of our lineups, had a nice 370-yard, three-touchdown game of his own. Josh McCown, E.J. Manuel, LeSean McCoy, Michael Floyd - they all had nice days, too.
But if you didn't have Josh Gordon, Alshon Jeffery or Eric Decker, you were in a bit of trouble, at least in non-50/50 leagues. Such is the life of a daily fantasy football player.
Let's get back to our typically dominating ways in Week 14.
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.
