TOP FIVE STACKS/CORRELATION
STACK ONE: Arizona Cardinals at Las Vegas Raiders
Derek Carr- Raiders: $6,700
Davante Adams- Raiders: $7,300
Darren Waller- Raiders: $5,600
Kyler Murray- Cardinals: $7,500
Marquise Brown- Cardinals: $5,800
(5 Players: $32,900 investment)
The highest implied total of the football weekend at 51.5, this one feels like a no-brainer. The Raiders and the Cardinals put up little to no resistance on defense against the Chargers and Chiefs. We have the makings of a shoot-out between two offenses that feel relatively condensed. If you wanted to throw James Conner into the mix, I wouldn’t be mad at it.
STACK TWO: Washington Commanders at Detroit Lions
Carson Wentz- Commanders: $6,800
Curtis Samuel- Commanders: $5,000
Jahan Dotson- Commanders: $4,900
Jared Goff- Lions: $6,400
D’Andre Swift- Lions: $6,200
T.J. Hockenson- Lions: $5,000
(6 Players: $34,300 investment)
Here we are–Week Two–and I’m recommending a Commanders/Lions stack. What a time to be alive! The Commanders took advantage of an easy match-up against the Jaguars, and the Lions’ defense may not be much better. The Lions have a dominant offensive line that should provide ample running lanes and time to throw for Jared Goff.
STACK THREE: Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams
Matthew Stafford- Rams: $7,100
Cooper Kupp- Rams: $7,400
Allen Robinson- Rams: $5,300
Marcus Mariota- Falcons: $6,300
Kyle Pitts- Falcons: $5,500
Drake London- Falcons: $5,000
(6 Players: $36,600 investment)
In Los Angeles, we get a match-up of two desperate 0-1 football teams. Matthew Stafford and Cooper Kupp look connected as always–they are as surefire as anything in DFS at the moment. Allen Robinson looked invisible against Buffalo. The Rams front office didn’t pay him to come to Los Angeles to do nothing. Expect the Rams to make it an emphasis to get A-Rob going. Don’t expect much success on the ground in this one for Atlanta. The Rams’ front seven should neutralize their rushing attack. The Falcons playing from behind will have to target their two sensational young playmakers in this one.
STACK FOUR: Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars
Matt Ryan- Colts: $6,600
Michael Pittman Jr.- Colts: $6,100
Trevor Lawrence- Jaguars: $6,600
Christian Kirk- Jaguars: $5,700
Zay Jones- Jaguars: $4,600
(5 Players: $29,600 investment)
Michael Pittman Jr. is my favorite play on the slate, regardless of position. Pairing him with Matt Ryan looking for a rebound game makes sense. The Jaguars will likely be chasing in this one. I know Trevor Lawrence has been wildly inconsistent, but he will continue to fling the ball down the field to big-play threats like Christian Kirk and Zay Jones.
STACK FIVE: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Orleans Saints
Tom Brady- Buccaneers: $7,200
Mike Evans- Buccaneers: $6,100
Julio Jones- Buccaneers: $5,400
Jameis Winston- Saints: $6,400
Michael Thomas- Saints: $5,600
Jarvis Landry- Saints: $4,900
(6 players: $35,600 investment)
These teams traditionally play lower-scoring games, as they know each other incredibly well. The slate is slim this week, so let’s roll the dice. Chris Godwin injured his hamstring last week against Dallas, which should open up more opportunities for Julio Jones. Brady and Jones appear to be building rapport early. It’s not always pretty with Jameis, but when chasing, he is a gunslinger. Michael Thomas came up clutch a week ago, and Jarvis Landry was also heavily involved. I would support either or both of these plays. Also rookie receiver Chris Olave is at $5,000.
