Whether it be exploiting good matchups, finding sleepers, or trying to navigate around the COVID reserve list, setting a DraftKings lineup can be tricky.

When setting your DraftKings lineup, it’s tempting to spend big on elite fantasy players, but that will leave your lineup way too top-heavy and ultimately keep you out of the top spots in your contest.

A lot goes into a daily fantasy lineup, but finding good matchups as well as solid bargains will help your chances to win. In our lineup, we have both of those things. Let’s get into it.

Best DraftKings lineup for Week 16

Quarterback: Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals ($5,900)

Joe Burrow has actually been a reliable fantasy quarterback this season. He’s ranked as the QB10 in PPR leagues and has more points than other quarterbacks such as Dak Prescott, Ryan Tannehill, and Derek Carr, who were all likely drafted ahead of him.

This week, Burrow gets an excellent matchup with the Baltimore Ravens, who surprisingly allow the sixth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. In his last outing against Baltimore, Burrow threw for 416 yards and three scores. He has a good chance of doing that again in a crucial matchup.
