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.
FanDuel: Cousins ($8,300) + Thielen ($8,900) = $17,200
DraftKings: Cousins ($6,200) + Thielen ($8,900) = $15,100
Facing the No. 30 ranked DVOA pass defense and the No. 7 ranked pass defense allowing 223.1 yards per game
Game Total - 50
Implied Totals - Vikings at 27.5 points and Lions at 22.5 points
Game Line - Minnesota Vikings -5
The Minnesota Vikings are at home to take on the Detroit Lions in a pivotal Week 9 NFC North matchup. This game is expected to be one of the higher scoring games of the week as it has the fifth-highest game total. The implied number has the Vikings scoring just under four touchdowns in this game, and Cousins should have his way with the Lions in this game.
Cousins has had an excellent start to the season with the Vikings as he has thrown for 2521 yards and 16 touchdowns to go with four interceptions through the first half of the 2018 season. Cousins also has a rushing touchdown this year, and he is capable of extending plays with his feet.
