Is one quarterback two running backs three wide receivers one tight end one running back wide receiver tight end flex And each and every week. That lineup is automatically generated by your top scorers at that position. So the idea for best ball is to build a team. That's going to score points but also a team that's going to have the opportunity to withstand injuries a team. That's going to have the opportunity to have maybe some late emerging players at the end of the season to help you get over the hump and cash up four best ball and on draftkings number ways to do that.
