|GPP Game Stacks|
Lamar Jackson ($7,700) vs HOU – Lamar Jackson has been absolutely bonkers this year and is averaging 28.3 FPPG. Last week vs the Bengals in a mere 3 quarters, Jackson went 15/17 for 233 yards and 3 touchdowns and rushed for 65 yards and another touchdown in a highlight reel worthy scramble. where he hit the spin button on ’em. He’s basically a prime Michael Vick, but better? I’m jamming him in for cash games this week at home against Deshaun Watson, in what should be one of the better games this year. Sporting the second highest total on the slate, with an O/U set at 51, where Baltimore is favored by 4.5 points. The Texans give up an average of 20.2 FPPG to opposing QBs, which ranks just inside the top 10 in points allowed.
Kyle Allen ($5,300) vs ATL – If you aren’t paying all the way up for Jackson, Allen is a great value at home this weekend against the Falcons, who are giving up 22.6 FPPG to opposing QBs, which is top 5 in the league. You can easily pair him with CMC and DJ Moore for your cash games, creating a nice little stack. I believe Curtis Samuel and Greg Olsen are also in play for tournaments, if you’re looking for leverage in this chalky game.
Jeff Driskel ($4,600) vs DAL – The people ain’t ready to hear it, but Driskel is basically a bigger and more-athletic Kyle Allen (for $700 less). He’s got some wheels on him too, running a 4.56. You can play him naked in cash games and jam in the stud RB’s and or Michael Thomas. You have to pay down virtually everywhere this week and there’s a ton of value on the slate. Driskel helps make this happen and provides a decent floor with his rushing ability. Last week, he dropped 19 points on the Bears, with 47 attempts and 5 rushes for 37 yards. He’s got nothing to lose and will continue to play yolo ball while Stafford recovers. He’s got enough quality weapons around him in Golladay and Jones and some safety blankets in Hockensen and Amendola. He’s set up to succeed at home this week against the Boys.
Christian McCaffrey ($10,500) vs ATL – Until CMC eclipses $11k on Draft Kings, you find a way to play him. With Brian Hill value opening up and Deebo Samuel’s salary at $4k, it’s not hard to do it this week. Death, Taxes, and CMC is getting 30 fantasy points. He was a mere few inches away from another tuddy last week at the buzzer as his lineman tried to drag him into the end zone. Don’t overthink this one.
Dalvin Cook ($8,900) vs DEN – It seems Dalvin always goes off when we don’t get him on the main slate. At $8,900 at home against the Broncos, he should get a ton of work. Adam Thielen is still out and Diggs will be shadowed by CB Chris Harris, aka Zimmanski are pounding the rock and relying on their defense to give backup QB Brandon Allen fits.
Josh Jacobs ($6,900) vs CIN – I’d rather pay down for JJ2K at a nice $6,900 than play Zeke in cash this week. He’s teetering on the edge of bell-cow status after seeing 5 targets in week 10. You can effectively pencil him in for 20+ touches a week and he’s still below $7,000 on Draft Kings. The Bengals are 4th in points allowed to RBs, averaging 23.4 FPPG.
Brian Hill ($4,800) @ CAR – The chalk free square play this week in cash games. Barring an injury, there’s virtually no way Hill doesn’t succeed this week. Carolina is one of the worst teams in the league in terms of rushing DVOA. Hill faces virtually no touch competition and should see roughly 20 opportunities in this one. I wouldn’t overthink this one. The savings he provides allows you to pay up for the big boys this week, be it CMC, Lamar Jackson, and/or Michael Thomas.
DJ Moore ($5,900) vs ATL – DJ Moore STILL being under $6k on Draft Kings is just disrespectful. However, it’s not as bad as him being $300 CHEAPER THAN CURTIS SAMUEL ON FAN DUEL. The kid has seen 10 targets a game the last 4 weeks and continues to deliver, despite only scoring 1 TD this year. I believe that corrects itself this week against the Falcons. You could make a case that he’s this week’s Christian Kirk. He’s going to be one of the highest owned WR’s on this slate. so I wouldn’t fade him in cash games.
Terry McLaurin ($5,600) vs NYJ – It’s time to pull the F1 out of the garage. His price on Fan Duel is downright disrespectful. Remember who threw him all of those touchdowns at Ohio State? Yeah, Dwayne Haskins. The guy that’s starting the rest of the year for the R-words. The Jets are 2nd in the NFL in points allowed to WRs, averaging 28.5 FPPG. I still believe in Haskins, he was thrust into the starting role before he was ready and had 2 road games against Minnesota and Buffalo. Give the kid a break. Now he’s at home and has had more time to work with the first team and get acclimated to the NFL. It always helps when you have a soft match-up too.
Hollywood Brown ($5,600) vs HOU – Since Week 1, we’ve been awaiting another Hollywood smash week, and I believe the time has come. Brown hauled in all 4 of his targets last week for 80 yards and a touchdown and now gets the Texans at home, who are 4th in the league in points allowed to wide receivers (27.7 FPPG). This game currently has the 2nd highest total of the week (51 point O/U).
Tyler Boyd ($5,200) @ OAK – Even with Ryan Finley under center, Boyd continues to be a target magnet. The Raiders are 3rd in points allowed to WRs, giving up an average of 27.8 FPPG. Boyd is safe to pencil in to your cash lineups this week, but I would look to Auden Tate for $1,000 less for tournaments.
Deebo Samuel ($4,000) vs ARI – Thanks to Draft Kings greed and need to post the salaries before the conclusion of Monday night’s game, we get Deebo Samuel post-breakout at $4k with (likely) no Kittle, Sanders, or Breida. One of the chalky WRs on this slate and for good reason, Samuel opens up a lot of value for us at other positions.
Jared Cook ($4,400) @ TB – I loathe Jared Cook, but he plays Tampa Bay and saw 10 targets last week. He’s scored double digits 3 weeks in a row and 2 touchdowns in his past 4 games. TB gives up 11.7 FPPG to TEs (2nd most in the league).
Ross Dwelley ($3,400) vs ARI – Follow the flow chart. With SF ravaged by injuries, there won’t be a ton of options for Jimmy G this week. The Cardinals are giving up a whopping 14.6 FPPG to the Tight End position, by far the most in the league.
Ryan Griffin ($2,900) @ WAS – Poor Chris Herndon finally plays a game then immediately gets sent to IR. Griffin is probably the best value/punt TE this week against Washington at only $2,900. As the starter against Miami and Jacksonville, he saw a combined 12 targets and went for 116 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Cardinals ($1,500) @ SF – This one baffles me, but somehow the Cards are by far the cheapest D/ST this week. Jimmy G has looked #notgood and is a good bet to turn the ball over. He’s missing several of his top weapons and Arizona almost escaped with a W last time these teams met, just 2 weeks ago. I could easily see a few sacks and perhaps a fumble or interception that go for a tuddy. Realistically, at this price point, you just need Arizona to get you like 3 points. The savings they provide you this week cannot be understated.
