DraftKings Core Plays – Week 4

Daily Fantasy

Have you ever played the Tiers contests on DraftKings? If not, could I interest you in a game that you don’t have to worry about salaries or defenses? You literally just need to pick the highest-scoring player in each tier. Ah, but it’s not that easy! The Tiers format has its own strategies and nuances. I covered 3 reasons to play the Tiers game and 5 strategies to have an edge on the field in the very first Tiers for Fears on the Mayo Media Network.

But the best part is we can use Run the Sims, an excellent fantasy tools site, for extra leverage against our competition.  The Run the Sims Percentile Projections and Rangefinder tools are excellent tools to look at ceiling outcome opportunities and help make 1 v 1 player decisions. So let’s take a look at Week 4 on DraftKings Tiers!



-I play about 20 Tiers lineups per week. So when I mention “sprinkle”, I’m probably just playing them a couple of times.  Then I try to rotate through the rest of my favorite and core players.

-Pay attention to the weather on the East coast. If there are major weather concerns as of Saturday, I’ll edit core plays and tweet my updates.

Want more details on why I’m choosing these core plays? Watch the video version with more explanation of my favorite and core plays!  Watch Week 4 Tiers for Fears on the Fanspeak HERE!
