Week 3 Millionaire Maker recap

My weekly in-depth recap of the top lineups and strategies used in the Millionaire Maker tournament was just posted to the Footballguys.com site. Here are a few of my main takeaways from Week 3:

1. For the first time this season, you weren't necessarily rewarded for paying up for Julio Jones despite his strong performance (43.4 points). The stronger strategy was a more balanced approach at Wide Receiver that spread cap space out between three or four of the following players: Randall Cobb ($7,300), A.J. Green ($7,200), Steve Smith Sr. ($6,300), Brandon Marshall ($6,200) and Larry Fitzgerald ($5,800). These receivers in the mid-high priced tier all had strong performances and the full PPR scoring and 100-yard bonus on DraftKings makes it very rewarding to hit on three or more receivers who post big reception totals, 100+ yards and one or more touchdowns.

2. Devonta Freeman was absolutely essential to a top-scoring lineup. Freeman outscored the second-highest scoring running back by almost 15 points and 100% of the top finishers owned Freeman. It was just one of those weeks in the large-GPPs where you either picked Freeman or finished behind somebody who did.

3. The stacks are back. Nearly all of the top finishers employed the stacking strategy with Andy Dalton-A.J. Green and Cam Newton-Greg Olsen both proving to be extremely strong combinations. It was a "chalk" week with the top scoring Quarterbacks all leaning heavily on their top targets (Randall Cobb and Aaron Rodgers were also a strong combination).

Looking forward to Week 4, I am intrigued by another QB-TE stack similar to Newton-Olsen with Tyrod Taylor and Charles Clay facing a poor Giants pass defense. Their low prices allow you to roster four top receivers in the mid-high price range with huge upside. T.Y. Hilton ($6,700), Jordan Matthews ($6,600), Larry Fitzgerald ($6,500), Mike Evans ($6,400) and Jeremy Maclin ($5,800) are all in that sweet spot of pricing that led to a lot of success in Week 3. The low-priced QB-TE combination also allows you to add a pair of mid-high priced running backs, with Latavius Murray ($6,300), Mark Ingram ($6,000), Joseph Randle ($5,500) and Devonta Freeman ($5,200) all strong options to fill out a high-upside Millionaire Maker lineup in Week 4.

  4. We looked at the obvious selections from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Los Angeles Rams earlier this week, and how paying top dollar for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs may be a contrarian plan. That was largely accurate, but when Dalvin Cook was officially ruled out against the Seahawks on Sunday, the slate dynamics shifted dramatically. As a result, Alexander Mattison became an exceptionally popular running back option, and with so much pricing value at the position, it became much simpler to finance high-end passing games. Another effect was that the game between the Vikings and the Seahawks became a battle with a greater passing expectation. We have a lot of fps games on pc in our site.

  8. Week 3 of the Millionaire Maker contest in fantasy football featured top performers like Patrick Mahomes, Keenan Allen, and De'Von Achane. Successful lineups often included stacking players, where managers paired a quarterback with one or more of their receivers or tight ends. Key strategies included finding value, utilizing injury replacements, and utilizing backup running backs and wide receivers. Top lineup examples include Patrick Mahomes with 44.44 points, De'Von Achane with 45.30 points, Raheem Mostert with 41.70 points, Keenan Allen with 46.46 points, Davante Adams with 37.20 points, Tank Dell with 28.50 points, Travis Kelce with 19.40 points, Adam Thielen with 31.50 points, and DST with 23.00 points. Elite quarterbacks like Mahomes and Tua Tagovailoa continued to dominate, while emerging stars like Achane and Dell may become mainstays in future lineups. Wide receivers played a pivotal role, with several surpassing 30 fantasy points criminal defense lawyer loudoun county.
