Which potential shootouts have the most potential for stacking and/or super-stacking this week? Are any landmines where you can see fading them can be the correct side?
- Cardinals at Buccaneers
- Falcons at Saints
- Panthers at Packers
Also, discuss the Packers backfield and its wild hot-hand weekly swings, do you trust the Tampa Bay or Arizona offense more considering both are suspect defenses and do you need to have Matt Ryan back this week to buy a Falcons stack or into the Atlanta offense in general?
The Packers will get right at home against the Panthers, and that makes Aaron Jones a near must-play in cash lineups. I expect Jones to put up exceptionally strong numbers this week. Jamaal Williams is too up-and-down to use in cash but certainly is worth being part of builds in diversified GPP lineups.
The Cardinals and Buccaneers should be a bonanza, and both Murray and Winston are top-5 choices at quarterback this week. The tricky part of the Buccaneers is Godwin and Evans are both premium-priced, and both have had massive games lately. It's hard to afford a super-stack of Winston/Evans/Godwin, but if you can make it work it's probably worth pursuing because ownership will be low. I think Winston/Godwin or Winston/Evans builds will be super popular, and might be worth fading in GPPs but are fine in cash.
As for Arizona, the receivers have been difficult to get right each week, but Larry Fitzgerald's price makes a Murray/Fitzgerald stack intriguing. With David Johnson possibly back, it's difficult to trust either he or Kenyan Drake.
