Analyzing the Top 10 Lineups From 2020 DraftKings NFL Millionaire Makers

It’s that time of year again! For the past few seasons I have been doing a thorough review of what the Top 10 lineups look like for the largest field DraftKings Millionaire Maker. Sometimes you have to beat a few hundred thousand opponents, and sometimes you have to beat over 1 MILLION other lineups to come out on top. It takes a good strategy and some luck to end up walking away the winner each week, but there are some trends that have emerged over the past few seasons that can help you make lineups that look like previous lineups that have won or competed at the highest levels in these extremely large field tournaments.

After you have read what happened in the 2020 season in this article, I encourage you to also go back and read last year’s article if you have never read my summary pieces before. There are plenty of lineup techniques to learn and it always helps to have as much information as possible. You can find the 2019 piece here.

Don’t forget that while this study looks at the very specific Millionaire Maker tournaments, the data within can be applied to many of the large field tournaments around the industry where you are attempting to beat 100,000+ entries.

I have a full set of 2020 data from Weeks 1-17 that I looked at for this review, so let’s get started trying to dissect what it takes to put yourself in contention to win these types of contests!
