Welcome to the weekly NFL experts optimal lineup analysis! As the Daily Fantasy Sports industry continues to grow, there has been an explosion of optimal lineups from numerous websites. Have you ever wondered how these lineups have done without risking your hard earned cash? Well before you spend money on these “optimal” lineups read these weekly reviews. Every week, we will review how these expert lineups did in both DraftKings & FanDuel and will put each lineup in a GPP and cash game. The goal of these reviews is to give you a high level overview of the performance of these lineups and to help you distinguish which sites are trustworthy. To that end, onto the grading!

GPP Grading: A+ = Top 10 Tournament Finish, A = Top 10-15% Finish, B = Top 15-20% Finish, C = Minimum Cash Finish (2x your Buy-in), D = Almost Cash, F = Fail

Cash Game Grading: Cash = Doubling Your Money, No Cash = Losing Your Money
