Starting Stacks for Week 2

Scott Bischoff takes a look at the stacks that could pay dividends in Week 2 in GPP play on FanDuel and DraftKings.

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 and DraftKings. 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 attempt to find players that can pay dividends for your lineup. In some cases, 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.


Ben Roethlisberger + Antonio Brown

FanDuel: Roethlisberger ($7,600) + Brown ($8,900) = $16,500

DraftKings: Roethlisberger ($6,900) + Brown ($8,800) = $15,700

Game Total - 52.5

Implied Totals - Steelers at 29 points and Chiefs at 23.5 points

Game Line - Pittsburgh Steelers -5

The Pittsburgh Steelers bring Kansas City to town on Sunday to take on the Chiefs in an AFC matchup in Week 2. This game has the highest total of the week at 52 points, and it is clear three will be points to go around in this game. The Steelers have the highest implied total of the week (29), and they are at home which has been a positive for the Steelers offense with Roethlisberger at the helm.

The Chiefs are very vulnerable through the air and they were lit up in Week 1 by Los Angeles
Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. They allowed 418 yards and three touchdowns to Rivers, but it could have been worse as several big drops by Chargers receivers left yards and points on the field. The Chiefs were the No. 23 ranked DVOA pass defense in 2017, and they stumbled out of the blocks this season.
