Not only does StarStreet have the by far the coolest live event (seriously, the Playboy Mansion), but they also have an amazing VIP rewards program and a great roster setup (no Kickers or Defense).

Rather than choosing a few players at each tier, focusing on one lineup seems to be the best way to win. This lineup is used for many head to head match-ups and in multiplier tournaments. If you want to maintain a steady flow of cash, play the head to head games. But if you are looking to “go big or go home” try the multiplier tournaments.
I have found that the best players play “double ups” exclusively, then put a few lineups in for the big tournaments. That way, should you not place in a big tournament, the ability to make money is still there with the multipliers. In multipliers, the idea is not to have the “best” lineup of the bunch. You just have to be in the top half. This requires different structure to a lineup.
Here is my lineup for multipliers this week (safe).
As many NFL fans will agree, the Bears and Eagles game should be a high scoring affair, which is why I am stacking Foles, Cutler, Marshall, Jeffery, and Jackson. That seems like a lot for one game, but for the amount of production those five players can offer, it is well worth the money. That leaves me with two RB, TE, and a FLEX. For the two RB, I found that Ivory and Richardson are both likely to see the lion’s share of carries for each of their respective teams, and for an average of $9,000, it is well worth it. Dennis Pitta faces the Patriots, who have had problems defending the tight end this season, and in my FLEX is Reuben Randle, who will start in place of the injured Victor Cruz, who is likely out for the remainder of the season.
Here is my lineup for big tournaments (more risk)
To win big tournaments, you need to get a few players who have the opportunity to have an enormous week, similar to Jamaal Charles last week. This week, I went with DeMarco Murray vs. Washington, Andre Johnson vs. Denver, Jimmy Graham vs. Carolina, Gio Bernard vs. Minnesota and Kirk Cousins vs. Dallas. Each and every one of these players could score 30 points or more, but a few of them could be duds as well.
To win in these tournaments, risks must be taken, but educated risks make the process easier. Reuben Randle and Michael Crabtree could end up in the top 10 in terms of fantasy points for this week, as they are both the top targets for each player’s team. Crabtree is starting to get back into game shape, and Kaepernick trusts him, which bodes well for fantasy owners.
Reuben Randle will be one of the most targeted players this week with Victor Cruz out, and Eli Manning will always pass the ball over 35 times per game. Alfred Morris and Jay Cutler remain, and for their respective matchups, there was not a better value on the board. The Cowboys cannot stop the run, and the Eagles cannot stop the pass. Morris and Cutler could be poised for huge games, but are very low risk in the same sense.
Good luck to everyone this week.
