2021 DraftKings Millionaire Maker Trends Through NFL Week 5

If you missed the 2020 Millionaire Maker Top 10 recap, you can catch up here, but since we are now five weeks into the 2021 season it’s time to start looking at this year to see if there are any trends we can take advantage of, and also discuss ownership trends historically once bye weeks start hitting.

    Brit, For the stacking numbers, do the “Game Stack” numbers include the “Team Stacks” or are the “Team Stacks” only those team stacks where the lineup did not bring it back with an opposing player. And how many total lineups are we talking about? Is it top ten from each week (i.e. 50)? Would I be correct in reading the data that 20 of 50 had a team stack of 2 or 3 with no gamestack; 25 of 50 had a game stack of 3 or 4; and 5 had no stack at all.

    You have it correct

    Hi Brit, appreciate the work you put into this article. I was wondering your thoughts on the possibility of adding information about salary spent (should we leave money on table and, if so, how much?) for top 10 lineups, along with Vegas spreads and totals data. I try to focus my QB stacks (and almost my entire player pool) primarily on Vegas favs only and game stacks on close spread, high total games believing this formula is more likely to be in winning lineups but don’t have the data to back that up. Thanks!
