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.
Note: Additions have been made and added to this article to reflect injury concerns for several players. The original article was written Thursday AM and there are multiple situations that require context. All added information is in red and follows the original text.
FanDuel: Rivers ($7,800) + Allen ($8,100) = $15,900
DraftKings: Rivers ($6,200) + Allen ($7,600) = $13,800
Facing the No. 32 ranked DVOA pass defense and the No. 28 ranked pass defense allowing 291.3 yards per game
Game Total - 44.5
Implied Totals - Chargers at 30 points and Dolphins at 14.5 points
Game Line - Los Angeles Chargers -16
The Los Angeles Chargers travel to Florida to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday for an AFC matchup in Week 4. The Dolphins are floundering in all phases, and they are a huge underdog at home this week. The Chargers have the highest implied total (30) of the week, and they are going to put points on the board in this contest.
Rivers has picked apart defenses as the Chargers throw the ball at a very high rate and are comfortable utilizing his arm to move the ball down the field. Rivers will be productive in this game, and he should be able to take apart the porous Dolphins defense on Sunday.
