DFS Roundtable: Trusting Vegas Totals

The DFS team discusses stacking and player selection among the highest Vegas totals of Week 6

The two glaring high Vegas totals of Week 6 are Tampa Bay-Atlanta (57) and Kansas City-New England (58). Both point spreads are close with the Buccaneers coming off a bye and the Patriots finding their offensive stride in recent weeks.

Is there an auto-stack among these four teams? More importantly, what is your take on the best value among the backfields?

Justin Howe: The two glaring high Vegas totals of Week 6 are Tampa Bay-Atlanta (57) and Kansas City-New England (58). Both point spreads are close with the Buccaneers coming off a bye and the Patriots finding their offensive stride in recent weeks. Is there an auto-stack among these four teams? More importantly, what is your take on the best value among the backfields?

It's early, but the chalkiest stacks look like Tom Brady-Rob Gronkowski and Matt Ryan-Julio Jones. They're the obvious home-team stacks, anyway. I'm definitely more interested in the former, as Gronkowski has more avenues to a big day than Jones, who still seems allergic to the flora of the end zone. The Patriots can bully their way to not just yardage, but touchdowns as well, especially against Kansas City's sieve-like secondary.

But overall, when I'm looking to diversify, I'm more interested in the backfields of the KC-NE game. Running games often peter out in high-flying matchups like this one should be, but there's just so much pass-game appeal in these units. Kareem Hunt is the Chiefs' unchallenged workhorse, and it's hard to shake the memory of him repeatedly gashing last year's Patriots on those stretch runs. And the Patriots only dressed two running backs last week - their production should again be concentrated entirely on Sony Michel and James White. Both Hunt and Michel come relatively affordable, too. Identify the right game script and win valuable prizes.
