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: Ryan ($7,900) + Jones ($8,400) = $16,300
DraftKings: Ryan ($6,700) + Jones ($8,000) = $14,700
Facing the No. 30 ranked DVOA pass defense and the No. 31 ranked pass defense allowing 290.9 yards per game
Game Total - 51.5
Implied Totals - Falcons at 28 points and Buccaneers at 23.5 points
Game Line - Atlanta Falcons -4.5
The Atlanta Falcons are at home this weekend as they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday for a Week 12 NFC South matchup. This game carries the highest total of the week (51.5), and points are expected here. The Falcons are expected to hit four touchdowns in the game, and it is not all that difficult to see Ryan and the Falcons receiving weapons getting the Falcons over the total in this game as the Buccaneers are struggling on defense.
Ryan has thrown for 18 touchdowns and nine interceptions through nine games. He has thrown for 2663 yards, and on the ground, he has accumulated 77 yards to go with one score. He missed the Week 8 game versus Seattle due to an injury and returned in Week 10 on the road in New Orleans.
