DAILY FANTASY STACKS:
One of the things I like about the NFL cheatsheet is the ease that you can sort out the QB + 2 pass catchers and run back with an opponent pass catcher and find the cost of the stack, projection of that stack, average points produced and the stack ceiling. I also have a column to the right that shows how much cap space the stack will cost and the average salary left over so you can quickly scroll through and decide if it’s a stars and scrubs kind of stack or not.
Last week we wrote up the Dolphins and that stack on the GPP that I was in and I’m sure it was in the top 1% on the huge field GPPs. Bears gave up 49 points last week to the Cowboys so not worried about a shutout this week. Bears rank 26th in total defense and running a Tua Tagovailoa + Tyreek Hill + Jaylen Waddle stack feels like easy cash for double ups and cash games and has some upside for GPPs.
An under the radar stack this week is the Vikings who have a total of only 43.5 points. MIN has scored 34, 23, 29, 28 and 28 points in the last 4 game exceeding their Vegas projection. WAS ranks 2nd in rushing defense but 28th in passing defense paving the way for a Kirk Cousin + Justin Jefferson + Adam Thielen stack. You can run that back with Terry McLaurin who has greatly benefited from Taylor Heinicke under center putting up 20.7 and 16.7 DKP over the last two weeks.
Coming off a bye and a couple down games I’m hoping Justin Herbert can get back to his ceiling games against the Falcons this week who will be missing one of their top corners. Justin Herbert only (7200) is a decent price and with no Mike Williams you can get Joshua Palmer (5100) who should give you an easy 3x floor with some upside. Keenan Allen possibly back this week at (6500) is a little risky but Austin Ekeler (8800) is a freaking stud right now putting up 36.7, 24.3, 38.9 and 34.9 DKPs!
Damien Harris is working back in but I think Stevenson is the primary back right now and he has put up 21+ DKP in 4 straight weeks. Priced at only 6200 on DK he is giving you 3.5x as a floor and pushing 4x upside.
Priced at only (5200) on DK he will be the primary guy this week since Jonathan Taylor has been ruled out and Hines is no longer on the team. He is a cheap option but doesn’t have a huge upside with Ehlinger under center as he is not a typical check down QB. Jackson did put up 28.1 DKPs in Week 8 but I think he caught 10 balls in that game giving up a huge PPR edge. Don’t mind him for cash but not a fan of him for GPPs.
Still can’t believe he is only (6300) on DK. He has looked great is the feature back and put up 28.2 DKPs last week which is nearly 5X value! I doubt JaMycal Hasty is taking many carries from him so he feels like a pretty safe option this week.
Jones in a great spot this week against the Lions who are allowing 5.1 yards per carry (28th) and rank 30th in rushing defense. He is a bit more expensive at (7400) on DK but did put up 22.7 and 28.6 DKP over the last two weeks giving you 3x-4x value. In Week 2 he had a ceiling game at 35 DKPs which is 5x value so he does have some upside. In a game the Packers should be winning he should be running out the clock at the end. He is also around 65% to score a TD for you SGP players out there! If Lazard doesn’t play this week he could be heavily used in the passing game with Romeo Doubs so that’s a plus on sites like DK that offer PPR scoring.
Priced at only (6000) this week he will get another start as the primary back since Chubba was ruled out. Last week he put up 34.8 DKPs giving you almost 6x value which is amazing for his price point. So how does that matchup look? CIN allowing 4.4 yards per carry which is middle of the road but check 169 rushing yards allowed per game which is 30th in the NFL! Foreman time!
WIDE RECEIVERS/TIGHT ENDS:
One of the top targeted WRs behind Tyreek Hill with 13 targets last week and 14 targets the week prior. Last week he put up 36.9 DKPs in only his second game back and sitting at a sub 8000 price tag his ownership is sure to be high but love him for cash games.
KEENAN ALLEN/JOSHUA PALMER
One of the top DVP spots on the slate this week is the Chargers WRs as ATL is allowing 46.4 FPPG to the WR position and 215 yards per game and 1.5 touchdowns. ATL also allowing the most passing yards per game in the NFL at 354.7 and that is great news for the 13th best passing offense and should be a solid boost for any pass catcher on this team!
DET is allowing 40.1 DKP to the WR position and 193.6 yards with 1.4 touchdowns per game. If Lazard is out then Doubs becomes a solid option but even if Lazard plays he should be able to hit value. DET allowing the 23rd most passing yards per game at 249.3 and they rank 27th vs. WR-1 and 32nd vs. WR-2s.
On fire the last two weeks with the QB change and MIN allowing 38.9 DKPs to the WR position, 198.7 yards and 0.7 passing touchdowns.
