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).

POS Player Price
QB N. Foles $14,100
QB K. Orton $10,000
RB D. Williams $10,600
RB L. Bell $11,500
WR D. Bryant $13,000
WR D. Jackson $12,200
TE G. Olsen $9,500
FLEX R. Cooper $11,000
FLEX T. Williams $8,100

While it may seem dangerous to stack one game for a multiplier, the Dallas-Philadelphia game looks like a lock for offense, because both teams need to win to get to the playoffs, so despite the score each will be trying to score as often as possible. Foles and Orton could each throw for over 300 yards with multiple touchdowns, Foles obviously with more upside, and with their four main targets in this lineup as well (Cooper, Williams, Jackson, Bryant), it makes for an exiting game.

In addition to the stack, I added three players who are consistent, and can get the needed points to put this lineup into the money. Le’Veon Bell, Deangelo Williams, and Greg Olsen are all safe bets this week. Williams and Olsen have a good matchup against Atlanta, and Le’Veon Bell has been the model of consistency.

Here is my lineup for big tournaments (more risk)

POS Player Price
QB T. Pryor $10,200
QB K. Cousins $10,200
RB M. Forte $13,300
RB L. McCoy $14,100
WR M. Jones $8,900
WR D. Jackson $12,200
TE J. Graham $12,200
FLEX V. Davis $10,000
FLEX T. Richarson $8,900

Once again, in these tournaments, risks need to be taken, and the two best values in terms of reward at $8,900 this week are Marvin Jones against the Ravens and Trent Richardson against the Jaguars. Each could score 5 points, but could also score over 20 depending on the workload for each. I like Richardson to get a lot more carries this week against Jacksonville, because the Colts need him if they want to make a run in the playoffs.

In addition to these two cheap plays, cheap QBs that could have huge days are worth it at $10,200 as well. Terrelle Pryor and Kirk Cousins are playing for their futures, and each have a good chance to put up fifteen or more points. This allows my cap to be heavily spent in the middle of the lineup with McCoy, Forte, DeSean Jackson and Jimmy Graham who are all high reward players.

Good luck to everyone this week.
