NFL DFS Strategy

We have several weekly NFL tools available during the season. NFL data is imported every Tuesday morning and then updated throughout the week. These tools are explained in further detail below.

Weekly Cheatsheet

Our Weekly Cheatsheet is loaded with tons of data including Vegas lines and totals, matchup statistics, game log data and customizable projections. Start your research here every Tuesday morning and get a jump start on the field as you prepare your NFL rosters.

Lineup Generator

After you've set your targets on the cheatsheet, head over to the Lineup Generator to start building lineups. You can create manual lineups using our Lineup Builder that displays key data with each player, or generate up to 150 lineups in seconds using the Generator. Just set your desired exposure for each of your targets and the Generator will build random lineups with your requested player exposures. Then you just export your lineups for easy uploading at either DraftKings or FanDuel.

DraftKings Entries Manager

The DK Entries Manager is an invaluable tool to help manager multiple lineups and contests at DraftKings. Export your entries file from DK and you can quickly view your overall player exposure across all of your entries. You can also use the Manager to quickly edit by contest or by lineup with your exposure counts updating with each change. The best part? Each lineup has the flex position automatically optimized. This means that the player with the latest kickoff that is eligible for the flex position will be moved to that spot - allowing you to late swap if the situation arises.

Weekly Breakdown

The breakdown is a game by game display that includes Vegas odds and implied totals, FPA by position, DVOA statistics (from Football Outsiders), and player targets listed in traffic light format. It's a great way to get a quick overview of each game as you get a feel for the week. Check out the Week 21 breakdown here.

Vegas Lines

Vegas spreads and totals are posted for every NFL game and are available in a sortable table on the Vegas Lines page. These lines are updated daily throughout the week. For live odds, check out VegasInsider.
