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 get the New York Jets at home in Week 2. Vegas does not consider this game to be high scoring, but it does like the Raiders chances to score a lot of points as their implied total is 29.5 points. Also, the Raiders are favored by 15 points, and the Raiders should have their way with a very poor Jets pass defense.
The Jets were the No. 31 DVOA pass defense in the NFL last year, and they allowed 30 passing touchdowns last year. Also, only two teams league-wide gave up more passing plays of 40+ yards in 2016 than the 13 the Jets surrendered. The Jets have started poorly in 2017 as only two teams league wide have surrendered more 20+ yards, and 40+ yard passing plays.
