In this piece, we’ll explore the nuances of these strategies, showing how to optimize returns while keeping investments in check. Let’s get started.
Portfolio Recap & Strategy for Week 6
After DraftKings revealed the future utility of cards, I chose to retain most of my portfolio, emphasizing building my 2023 collection via my extensive 2022 collection, which boasts over 1,500 NFT cards with top-tier players.
Thanks to Lucky Trader’s lineup optimizer, we can now seamlessly create our lineups.

Last week posed challenges for my team. Two premier players, Justin Jefferson and De’Von Achane, suffered injuries and ended up on injured reserve. Their combined value plummeted from around $1,000 to a mere $300. It was a setback for my portfolio, which had been on an upward trajectory.
However, every cloud has a silver lining. Despite Jefferson’s setback, having the Tyreek Hill card, which I acquired last week, ensures my top lineup remains intact. The second lineup does face potential depreciation. To counter this, I added a Cooper Kupp ELITE card alongside my recently acquired Matthew Stafford quarterback card. Last week, I also roped in Alexander Mattison to enhance my running back position. Given Jefferson’s situation, Mattison might get more game time today. He’s my choice for the top lineup, which also allows me to add a RARE DJ Moore card, syncing well with the rising Chicago offense.
In the ELITE tier, I’ve diversified with four distinct lineups. One exclusively involves the 4 p.m. games. Notably, with the primary Chicago running backs unavailable, D’Onta Foreman steps into the lead. I’ve allocated him to a lineup centered around 4 p.m. matches, ensuring I can pivot to my Stafford-Kupp lineup if Foreman dominates for Chicago.
To round out my lineups, I selected the tight ends of my ELITE quarterbacks’ teams – Cole Kmet from Chicago and Tyler Higbee from the LA Rams, costing $60 in total. My logic: if either team is locked in a pivotal game later this season, having three main players from such a team positions me competitively.
Switching gears to the $100,000 first-prize CORE “Rush Only” contest, I’ve steadily been gathering players with serial numbers below 1000, each projected to score at least 10 points. I now command about 80 lineups. My strategy includes integrating one if not two, players from the 4 p.m. games into each lineup. This optimizes based on 1 p.m. game scores. For those eyeing the $100,000 contests, I endorse this flexible approach. Realizing this becomes simpler with the Lucky Trader Lineup Optimizer, ensuring at least two-star players from the 4 p.m. window are present in every lineup.
