Alright sports fans, unless you live in a cave you’ve probably seen (and heard on the radio) countless advertisements for Fanduel and DraftKings. The two companies payout millions every week to daily fantasy football players. But the casual players typically don’t go far, which is why we are letting you know about this weeks optimal lineup for Fanduel. You can get your feet wet and your bankroll off to a good start with Fantasy Knuckleheads lineup optimal lineup tool, free trial offered. This isn’t some cracker jack BS you’ll find everywhere else. FKH has put two years into developing and perfecting the optimal lineup algorithm.
.

Enough jibber jabber here’s the optimal lineup for week 8.

.

We created this masterpiece with our Fanduel optimal lineup tool, but we also have a optimal lineup tool for Draftkings. Lets start with the “locks”, locks are used for locking stacks such as a QB/WR stack. Hitting big on stack plays can really make your team pop in cash games. Just make sure you lock in a QB/WR stack that will produce. GB vs NO in week 8 will feature Rogers against one of the worse secondary’s in the league (sorry Saints fans). I expect Cobb and Rodgers to produce magical numbers so I just clicked the lock button to lock them in on the optimal lineup tool and BAMA, money in the bank. I’ll play this lineup in double-ups where I’ll have about a 50 percent chance to double my money. I’ve won over 70 percent of my games this year, and 100 percent in Week 7, which is the week we went live with our tool.
.

In the image above, you’ll notice that the optimal lineup tool only selects players with plus match-ups. You can stack, lock and fade (remove) any player you like. But, I don’t recommend excluding to many players or locking to many either. Go with what the computer tells you after you lock and or exclude 1 or 2 players. This will ensure your success on Fanduel and Draftkings. Always diversify your plays, which means create at least 2 or 3 lineups for this week and play nothing but double-ups and a few triple-ups. This is going to help you keep your money close.
.

Good luck this week! And don’t forget to start your free trial of the optimal lineup tool here.

.
1. Julius Thomas, Denver Broncos

.
2. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots
Gronk is averaging 58.4 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He’s averaging 87.3 yards the past three games as he has become  the focal point of the offense. That trend should continue against the Chicago Bears.
