This article is a data-driven deep dive on strategic decision-making and roster construction for DFS cash games and tournaments.

Then, I lay out how to choose the highest-floor lineup combinations for cash games. Finally, I go game-by-game to present the biggest edges (stacks, pivots, leverage opportunities, etc.) in each.

- Aaron Rodgers, Packers ($7,500 DK, $9,100 FD) at DET

Aaron Rodgers has thrown multiple TD passes in all but one game and should stay hot against a Lions defense that ranks 29th in pass DVOA.
Patrick Mahomes is cheaper than Rodgers on FanDuel, making him the top value at QB on the site. Mahomes has a +6.72 Plus/Minus and 92% Consistency Rating this season. The Dolphins’ defense has been stronger against the pass than run this season but has allowed an average of 3.25 total TDs per game to the four toughest QB matchups it faced (Josh Allen, 4; Russell Wilson, 2; Kyler Murray, 4; Justin Herbert, 3)
