DraftKings Tiers Core Plays – Week 16

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.

Let’s take a look at Week 16 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.

The Tiers Simulator is BACK! I loaded up my favorite plays for Week 16 and the Tiers simulator will give you different lineup suggestions to help you start building Tiers lineups.

-NO Tiers for Fears this week with the holiday week. I’ll be back next week with a new Tiers for Fears episode on the Fanspeak Network!
