My top stack of week 10 was Big Ben to Antonio Brown, which ended up hitting quite nicely. Big Ben threw for 408 yards and ended up with 31.42 DK points, while Antonio Brown caught 14 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown, which resulted in 37.4 DK points. If you had that stack you were on your way to a good week. My second stack was Alex Smith to Tyreek Hill and unfortunately Smith did what he normally does only racking up around 10 DK points, although Hill was great value at $3800 finishing with 20.1 DK points thanks to 10 catches. I was also on Brady to Gronk, which ended up being a very poor play because it turned into a Blount game even though the Pats were behind for the majority.
Anyways, on to week 11, where there are some great stacking options available.
Andrew Luck ($7200) + Donte Moncrief ($6100)
This is the perfect spot for Andrew Luck to have a vintage monster game. He put up 30.82 points against the Titans in week 7 and now with Moncrief back in the lineup he has all of his major weapons at his disposal. Add in the fact that the Titans offense has been firing of late and this game has the makings of a shootout that could lead to a big game from Luck.
The Titans also have a funnel type defense where you need to attack them through the air and I don’t think the Colts will have any problem with giving the ball to Luck and letting him dissect the Titans secondary.
I most like to stack him with Moncrief in this spot. Moncrief is a touchdown magnet and if this game does shootout he has a legitimate shot at getting over the 100 yard receiving mark and possibly even with a couple TD’s. The other option for a stack would be Jack Doyle at Tight End. I just don’t think I’ll be fitting Hilton into my lineup with his inflated price tag.
Kirk Cousins ($5800) + Jamison Crowder ($5400)
Cousins is the type of QB I like to roster because he has the ability to have monster games if the Redskins fall behind in games. For under $6k he’s a very consistent QB throwing the ball and has major upside, like when he threw for 458 yards in week 8. This week he’s at home against a Green Bay team that has their offense clicking fairly well over the past few weeks. I expect the Packers to be able to score and that will force Cousins to air it out in this one.
Crowder has emerged as a fairly consistent WR for the Redskins and when Cousins does have a big game he’s usually a big part of it. At $5400 he’s still a fairly cheap option as well.
Other stack options I would consider with Cousins include Jordan Reed at $5900 or Pierre Garcon at $3900 (although he doesn’t seem to have the upside necessary to win a tournament).
Colin Kaepernick ($5200) + Vance McDonald ($2700)
Kaepernick has quietly been playing some fairly good football in a very difficult situation in San Francisco over the past few weeks. At home to New Orleans a couple weeks ago he showed he does have the ability to throw the ball when he put up 398 yards through the air, and we all know his upside on the ground as well. That’s two weeks in a row breaking 20 points for Kaep and if you need to pay down at QB, I think he has a pretty solid floor thanks to his legs, and also a decent ceiling for the same reason.
With Kaepernick you never need to feel like you have to stack him with other players due to the fact he could get most of his DK points by himself, but if you do like a stack here I would look at Vance McDonald at TE for just $2700. McDonald has been targeted 6 times in each of the last 3 games with Kaep under center and he had a big 17.4 DK point game a couple weeks back. At $2700 he’s cheaper than wide receivers are even allowed to be and he gives you a lot of free reign at other places in your lineup.
The other stack option is Jeremy Kerley at $3500.
