Welcome to the sixth edition of Leverage for the 2021-2022 NFL Season!

My goal in this space is to make you a better GPP player by highlighting concepts that can help you differentiate from your opponents and climb the leaderboard. Each week, I will highlight some of the thought process or strategy that goes into my approach when making tournament lineups. I’ll then use some specific examples from that week to help illustrate how I intend to implement those concepts into my own GPP lineups. The examples I highlight will be in my portfolio of lineups, but if you want to improve considerably as a GPP player, mastering the concepts are more important than copying the answers.

In Week 5’s Leverage, we re-emphasized some of the core concepts of tournament play and ways to think about differentiating within the context of a chalky Week 5 slate. It was another week where the chalk options delivered in a big way. The three highest-utilized players by the field in DraftKings’ $20 Millionaire Maker delivered 30.3 (Alexander Mattison), 34 (Derrick Henry), and 40.60 (Davante Adams) DraftKings points. In total, only two players that were used by 15% or more of the field fell below 13.9 DraftKings points. With all the chalk hitting, scores got really elevated. The winning Millionaire Maker score was over 260 on DraftKings and the average total ownership by teams in the Top 10 was 128.76%. While the Establish the Million show correctly identified the contrarian pieces needed to win on the slate with flagplants of Mike Evans and Mike Williams, this was generally not the kind of slate our approach will thrive.
