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: Cousins ($8,200) + Diggs ($8,000) = $16,200
DraftKings: Cousins ($6,700) + Diggs ($7,600) = $14,300
Facing the No. 26 ranked DVOA pass defense and the No. 30 ranked pass defense allowing 280.1 yards per game
Game Total - 43
Implied Totals - Vikings at 28 points and Lions at 15 points
Game Line - Minnesota Vikings -12.5
The Minnesota Vikings are at home versus the Detroit Lions for a Week 14 NFC North contest, and they are a 12.5-point home favorite in this matchup. The implied number for the Vikings has them at four scores (28), and there should be opportunities for them in this contest as the Lions are underperforming against the pass.
Cousins started the season slowly, but he has picked up his play and is performing at a high level right now. He threw three touchdowns in the season’s first four games but has thrown for 20 scores over the past eight games. Back in Week 7, he threw for four touchdowns on the road against the Lions. The Lions pass defense is struggling, and the Vikings will have a chance to put up gaudy numbers against them.
