Starting Stacks for Week 5

Scott Bischoff takes a look at the stacks that could pay dividends in Week 5 in GPP play on FanDuel and DraftKings.

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.


Tom Brady + Julian Edelman

FanDuel: Brady ($7,600) + Edelman ($6,500) = $14,100

DraftKings: Brady ($6,500) + Edelman ($6,300) = $12,800

Facing the No. 26 ranked DVOA pass defense and the No. 18 ranked pass defense allowing 251.8 yards per game

Game Total - 43.5

Implied Totals - Patriots at 29 points and Redskins at 14.5 points

Game Line - New England Patriots -15

The New England Patriots travel to face the Washington Redskins on Sunday for a Week 4 matchup. The Redskins are struggling in all phases, and they are a huge underdog at home this week. The Patriots have the second-highest implied total (29) of the week, and they are going to put points on the board in this contest.

Brady started the 2019 season on a strong note, throwing for seven touchdowns and 911 yards over the first three games. He also kicked in a rushing touchdown, and the Patriots offense looked potent. He struggled in Buffalo last week, but he should bounce back this week and put up excellent numbers.
