Remember that if you haven’t signed up for DraftKings already you are really missing out. DraftKings is one week fantasy football and is paying out over $1 million every week of this football season.

Every week we are expanding on the one and only DFS Playbook here at Fantasy Alarm. If you were paying attention on Thursday we told you to play Matt Ryan and Harry Douglas, who would have had an even bigger game if he didn't leave after the first quarter. So, every Saturday we are going to give you our actual optimal lineups for both cash games and GPP's on both DraftKings and Fanduel. 

PLEASE NOTE: These are just our optimal lineups on each site for each contest. You absoutely will see me playing opther variations ever now and then so know that up front. But these lineups along with the Playbook on both Thursday & Sunday should help you find the right mix to win whatever contest you are playing in this week. 

Here are the optimal lineups for Week 3:
