Optimal Lineup

Updated Throughout the Day

Optimal lineups are generated to demonstrate groups of players that work well together. This should be used only as a thought-starter for your lineups. This lineup may not conform to exact requirements of FanDuel (ie. players from one team), and may cross over multiple slates. For more detailed and customizable lineup generation, please use the NHL FanDuel Optimizer.


Player expected costs and values are calculated every thirty minutes throughout the day.
