Recap & Lineup Analysis for 4/8 (Fanduel)

By Keith Allison on Flickr [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (], via Wikimedia CommonsAs you can see, through a little bit of crafty maneuvering and some skillful decision making, we were able to build up a winning lineup (in multiple daily league contests). This Fanduel lineup racked up 54.5 FP using our very own lineup picks to fill up 7 of the 9 total slots.

We looked at the players, the prices and the factors - and set our optimal lineup. You may not be able to squeeze every single pick that we give you into your lineup (nor do we guarantee that every one will be a success on every night), the objective here is to maximize our potential and swing the odds back in our direction.
