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: Mahomes ($9,200) + Watkins ($7,100) = $16,300
DraftKings: Mahomes ($7,600) + Watkins ($6,800) = $14,400
Game Total - 55.5
Implied Totals - Chiefs at 31 points and Ravens at 24.5 points
Game Line - Kansas City Chiefs -6.5
The Kansas City Chiefs bring the Baltimore Ravens to Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for a potential AFC shootout in Week 3. This game has the highest total of the week at 55.5 points, and it appears that both teams will put points on the board looking at the implied totals for each squad. The Chiefs have the third-highest implied total of the week (31), and they are off to an explosive start to the 2019 season.
The Ravens are a middle of the pack pass defense allowing 254 yards per game, but they have been hit via the big play. They have yielded 10 passing plays of 20-plus yards which is fourth-most in the NFL. The Chiefs win attacking vertically, and the Ravens are soft there.
