Each week I take a look at every NFL game in an attempt to identify players that can be stacked together to maximize value in GPP play at FanDuel. I examine the spreads and totals for each game as well as the implied totals for each team and blend that with the likeliest script that these games will follow. In doing so, I am attempting to find players that can pay dividends for your lineup, but I will also provide a pivot within the stack to another player and give reasons as to why a pivot might make sense. You can use this information as a guide, and you will have multiple options to help you to sort through the noise while you put lineups together that can offer a degree of security.
The Raiders travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans in Week 1. Vegas likes this game as one of the higher scoring games of the week with a 50.5 point total. The Titans are favored by 2.5 points, and they have an implied total of 26 points. The Raiders have an implied total of 25 points.
The Titans were the No. 30 pass defense in the NFL last year, and because the Titans are forecast to score a lot of points, the Raiders will be forced to keep pace. This allows Carr a chance to have a big day, and it is reasonable to see Carr throw multiple touchdowns in this game.
