NFL Optimizer Tips
When working with a NFL lineup optimizer, you may want to set filters and use features to do the following:
- Stack your quarterback with a wide receiver or tight end. This way, when your receiver scores, so will your quarterback. This technique is particularly recommended in GPP tournaments, when trying to maximize upside.
- Avoid using a quarterback and running back from the same team. When a running back is having success rushing the ball, this is taking away from the quarterbacks opportunities to score fantasy points.
- Avoid using too many players from one team. Like in the above scenario, they can cut into each other’s opportunities. Typically you’ll never want to use more than 3 players from the same offense.
- Avoid using offensive players facing your defense. When the offensive players score, your defense will lose points.
- Create “lineup sets” by quarterback.
- In cash games it’s often preferred to use a running back at the flex position (for sites like DraftKings). Running backs typically are more consistent. You almost never want to use a tight end in your flex, as they’re the least consistent option.
