DraftKings Tiers Week 13 Core Plays

By:  Megan Shoup

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 2 v 2 player decisions. So let’s take a look at Week 13 on Tiers.

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