Daily Fantasy Football: How Should You Hedge?

When filling out multiple daily fantasy football lineups, it's important to hedge to limit risk. How much should you do so?

I tend to joke a lot about the influence of rappers on my decisions in daily fantasy football. But some of y'all done went too far.
