Sunday brings another opportunity for NFL DFS players to showcase their skills. FanDuel is running a $1.8M NFL Sunday Million, while DraftKings is hosting a $3M Fantasy Football Millionaire, among many other NFL DFS tournaments. NFL DFS strategy is all about exploiting matchups, and there are several household names with mouthwatering opportunities. Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson could be one of the top NFL DFS picks as he takes on the Texans, a defense that has given up the the 26th most points to opposing quarterback on DraftKings. Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, meanwhile, has slate-breaking potential against a Tampa Bay defense that ranks dead last in points allowed to opposing receivers on FanDuel. With so many players and matchups to consider, qualified NFL DFS advice can go a long way. That’s why you need to see the optimal NFL DFS advice, player pool and stacks from SportsLine’s Mike McClure, a daily Fantasy pro who has won almost $2 million in his career.
McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every minute of every game 10,000 times, taking factors like matchups, statistical trends and injuries into account. This allows him to find the best NFL DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any NFL DFS player.
McClure had some eye-popping results during the 2018 NFL season, cashing in the top 5 percent of tournaments on FanDuel and DraftKings multiple times. His optimal lineups cashed as high as the top 0.1 percent on FanDuel and as high as the top 1 percent on DraftKings.
He’s rolling through 2019 as well, including a strong 3x return on DraftKings in the Week 3 main slate. On Sunday of Week 5, his optimal lineup finished in the top 1 percent of tournaments on DraftKings, with his four core players — Deshaun Watson, Michael Thomas, Christian McCaffrey and Will Fuller — combining for a whopping 196.34 points, enough to cash in tournaments by themselves. He followed that up by cashing his FanDuel and DraftKings lineups on Sunday Night Football and Monday Night Football in Week 6 and then cashed everywhere on his SNF lineups yet again in Week 7. He continued his roll with wins on both sites on the main slate, SNF and MNF in Week 8, and then followed that up with huge 5x returns on his optimal lineups on both sites in Week 9. Anyone who has been following him has seen huge returns.
We can tell you one of McClure’s top NFL DFS picks for Week 11 is Vikings running back Dalvin Cook at $8,600 on FanDuel and $8,900 on DraftKings. Cook has stayed healthy so far this year after missing 17 games in his first two seasons in the NFL.
Cook leads the NFL in rushing yards (991) and yards from scrimmage (1,415). He has five 100-yard games and has scored in all but two outings, helping him establish a reliable floor that has made him a staple of winning NFL DFS rosters. Cook is averaging a staggering 25.5 points on DraftKings and 22.0 points on FanDuel for the season. On Sunday, he gets a strong matchup against a middle-of-the-road Denver rushing defense (18th) in a game where the Vikings are favored by 10.5 points, meaning game flow should work in Cook’s favor.
Part of McClure’s optimal NFL DFS strategy for Week 11 includes rostering Saints running back Alvin Kamara at $7,800 on FanDuel and $7,400 on DraftKings. Knee and ankle injuries, and splitting carries with Latavius Murray, have eaten into Kamara’s season-long numbers, but McClure’s model indicates he’s a major steal this week as the Saints take on the Buccaneers, a team Kamara burned for 104 yards on a colossal 22 touches on Oct. 6.
The Buccaneers rank near the bottom of the league in total defense (376.7 yards per game) and scoring defense (31 points per game). They gave up two touchdowns to Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey earlier this season, a player with a similar skill set as Kamara, so confidently lock the former Vol into your Week 11 NFL DFS lineups and look for a huge return on value.
McClure is also targeting a player who could go off for massive numbers in Week 11 because of a dream matchup. The stars are aligning for him to go for 30, even 40 points on FanDuel and DraftKings. This pick could be the difference between winning your tournaments or going home with nothing.
