DraftKings Reignmakers NFL Week 10 Diary: NFT Portfolio Insights, Game Stacks & Top Selections
All eyes in the DraftKings Reignmakers community eagerly anticipate the release of the Millionaire Maker Holiday packs set to hit the market tomorrow. But before that, there's a need to build up the bankroll to afford a couple of these packs. And what better way to do that than by exploring the best possible lineups and card editions for Week 10?
For those new to this article, I'll provide a brief overview. I'll take you through my entire portfolio, sharing the strategy I plan to deploy this week. My focus is on playing my most significant lineups at the ELITE tier while engaging in Mass Multi-Entry (MME) for both the RARE and CORE tiers using the Lucky Trader Lineup Optimizer. Additionally, I'll cover a couple of top stacks, break down the main slate, highlight any injuries, and point out a few target players for the week. Let's dive in!
Portfolio Recap & Strategy for Week 10
After DraftKings revealed the future utility of cards, I retained 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.

After navigating through nine weeks of play, a recurring theme in my portfolio has been the constant need for one more running back to solidify a quality lineup. However, the tide has shifted, and now, with additions in each of the last three weeks, including two last week, I find myself with an abundance of running backs. For today's slate, five of them are projected among the top 10 running back scores, showcasing a surplus of talent. The challenge is finding the right complementary pieces, especially at the wide receiver and quarterback positions.
Recognizing this challenge before the week began, I knew I only had one superstar on my roster for this slate. I chose Ja'Marr Chase as my sole buy this week, securing his elite edition for approximately $310 right after it was announced that Tee Higgins wouldn't be playing. This decision proved to be a wise investment, with Chase's floor prices rising to around $450 since the announcement of Higgins being out and Chase himself playing. Thus, it appears that the investment in Chase at around $300 was indeed a solid move.
Having acquired Joe Mixon a few weeks ago, I've established a robust foundation of Bengals players for the remainder of the season. The team, which is on the fringe of the playoffs, has shown considerable improvement since the beginning of the season, reflected in the rising prices of their cards. For today's slate against Houston, I plan to align most of my fantasy points from the Bengals through Mixon, Burrow, and Chase.
Considering my portfolio's surplus of running backs, I need to pair these three with another strong option. Given that Aaron Jones and Green Bay are facing Pittsburgh, a team I also have cards of, I opted for Rachaad White, who has been playing exceptionally well in Tampa Bay. As the fifth player in this lineup, I've included Jahan Dotson, who has a 4:25 PM game. I can swap him out if I decide to upgrade the position after assessing the performance of all four of my 1:00 PM players, or I might stick with him and anticipate a ceiling game, as he has demonstrated in recent weeks.
In my second lineup, leveraging the value from acquiring Kenny Pickett at a low-cost weeks ago, I'm pairing him with Aaron Jones and George Pickens for a game stack. Utilizing my Calvin Ridley card, which has seen a significant drop in value since I purchased it for around $700 and now has a market price of around $180, has been challenging, given Ridley's individual struggles this season. However, being on a team likely headed for the playoffs, I still see potential in Ridley, especially at these reduced prices.
Like my approach with Dotson in the first lineup, I'll include a player participating in the 4:25 PM window for the last spot. This allows flexibility for a late swap if all the players in the 1:00 PM window perform well.
For my total late swap lineup, Saquon Barkley is set to face off against Dallas in the 4:25 PM window. With the early games not yielding many fantasy points, I've paired him with CeeDee Lamb, creating a lineup with three players starting in the 4:25 PM window. This setup enables me to make a late swap for an optimal lineup if there are no standout high scorers from the 1:00 PM slate. The last member of this team is Alexander Mattison, who reassumes the bell-cow role in Minnesota following the season-ending injury to Cam Akers.
