I love to play the DraftKings weekly NFL game during the main slate of Sunday games. For as little as a few pennies per entry into some contests your weekly line up has a chance to turn your stake into profit and adds a little bit of intrigue outside of your own teams match up. Here I bring you the scoring review by position and present the perfect line-up that could have won you millions…..


Another week and yet another masterclass and huge points haul from Drew Brees as predicted. Not much value for money to be found here this week as the top point scorers were also the biggest salary cap hits.

Running Back

A multiple touchdown game from Saquon Barkley sees the rookie top of the running back standings. A nice value performance from Mark Ingram outscoring his more expensive partner in crime Alvin Kamara.

Wide Receiver

Here we find the value of the week with huge days for TY Hilton, Tre’Quan Smith, DJ Moore and Kenny Golladay. Some big games from the expensive crew will hopefully mean you all found someone to score plenty of points this weekend.

Tight End

Jordan Reed was the recipient of Colt McCoy’s first touchdown pass for 3 years to lead the tight end rankings. The nostalgic fans would have appreciated seeing Antonio Gates hooking up regularly with Philip Rivers en route to a nice value for money performance.

Defence/Special Teams

As predicted in my preview post it was defensive touchdown that proved the difference maker and sees the Texans come out on top.

So what was the maximum score and lineup that your 50k budget could have scored?

QB – Drew Brees – 6.5k

RB – Saquon Barkley – 8.7k

RB – Ezekiel Elliot – 8.5k

WR – TY Hilton – 6.1k

WR – Tre’Quon Smith – 4.0k

WR – Mike Evans – 7.3k

TE – Antonio Gates – 2.5k

D/ST – Saints – 2.6k

FLEX – DJ Moore – 4.2k

Unlike last week purely picking the highest points scorers does not fit your salary cap this week so a total of 278.7 points is the maximum achievable by substituting out the top scoring tight end and top scoring defence for cheaper value options.

I won this weeks ALL32 league game so it would be great to get more of you involved next week to come and attempt to claim my crown. Look out for my weekly DraftKings preview dropping Sunday morning with tips on constructing your line-up and those important value for money additions.
