DraftKings Reignmakers NFL Week 11 Diary: NFT Portfolio Insights, Game Stacks & Top Selections
All players in the DraftKings Reignmakers community eagerly await the arrival of the season's biggest contest, the Holiday Millionaire Maker. But, before that slate, let's build up the bankroll here in Week 11.
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 11
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 weeks of adding to My Portfolio to create competitive lineups, I've reached a turning point in the season. It seems that My Portfolio has grown as much as it will outside of the forthcoming holiday packs in the next few days. Now, my focus is on crafting the best lineups possible, maximizing the potential for optimal late swaps, and leveraging the assets I've accumulated over the past 11 weeks.
The initial choice always involves pairing up with my Miami Dolphins. With De’Von Achane back in the lineup, I have the chance to create a full Miami Dolphins stack. However, considering the limited fantasy points available, I doubt all of them will reach their ceiling games. Thus, I plan to split the lineup—pairing the WRs with Tua and reserving Achane for another build.
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.
Presently, the decision rests on choosing the running back to pair with Tua and the other Miami Dolphins players. Considering recent performances and the consistent volume received, I'm inclined towards Rachaard White over options like Aaron Jones and James Cook. While both Jones and Cook are solid running backs, they will serve as valuable assets for additional lineups.
The return of Justin Fields and Matt Stafford to their starting quarterback positions following lengthy injuries significantly bolstered my portfolio. Utilizing them allows me to elevate a RARE card such as Diggs, Lamb, or Ekeler. This approach proves more advantageous than elevating a quarterback and relying on lesser-projected players from the ELITE tier.
Utilizing my other superstar running back, Saquon Barkley, I'll pair him up with Justin Fields and incorporate a couple of other elite players from My Portfolio. Aaron Jones will be matched with Matt Stafford and his superstar wide receiver, Cooper Kupp, completing the lineup in the most optimal setting for the 4:00 window.
The remainder of my cards will be allocated to prize pack party contests, omitting the 4:00 window games to maintain flexibility for potential player swaps in those lineups.
Now, let’s delve into some of the most pivotal games of the slate.
