FanDuel lineups could get hurt by game postponements in the NFL, but as of right now, this lineup looks like the best.

Last week, there were likely three ways your lineup got paid through FanDuel’s daily fantasy lineup. You either had Tyreek Hill on your team, you had Derrick Henry on your team or more than likely you had both on your team. Henry ended the day with 37.5 FanDuel points and Hill ended the day with a ridiculous 51.4 FanDuel points. Close to 20 percent of FanDuel lineups had Hill on them. If you weren’t one of them, it’s nearly impossible to make up that kind of deficit.

There were a lot of high-scoring players last week. Kenyan Drake, James Robinson, Latavius Murray, and Nick Chubb are just some of the other options that hit the 20-point mark. Justin Jefferson, A.J. Brown, and Jarvis Landry are some of the few wide receivers to really break out this week. However, the key was still Henry and Hill.

Interestingly enough, nine of the top ten scoring teams in Fanduel not only had Hill, but they paired him with his quarterback Patrick Mahomes. His 31 points helped push a lot of these teams over the top. It shows the importance of the top three positions. Sure, it seems obvious, but every week, to get in the money, players have to hit on their quarterback, their top running back, and their top wide receiver. Missing out on even one of them could lead to disaster for a lineup.

Last week, there were some bombs. Dalvin Cook’s largely forgettable day was due to injury. His $11,000 price tag tanked quite a few lineups (32.3 percent of lineups to be exact). This week, finding the right combination of star and longshot will be key in winning cash on your FanDuel lineup.
