After a two week struggle, week 4 finally improved for me. While my cash lineup wasn’t great (Marlon Mack injury crashed my cash lineup), my GPP lineups came through in a big way.
First of all, this was a weird week to begin with. We saw a lot of early points go to no name players, primarily at TE. Scores were definitely suppressed and other than the high-end chalk hitting, outside of Wayne Gallman, a lot of the lower end chalk fell flat.
In this article, I am going to highlight the stacks that I like this week for GPP’s on DraftKings.
These are in no particular order and I will likely update on Saturday/Sunday if I move off of any of them. You can also remove any one player if you are not into full game stacks.
Baltimore & Pittsburgh Game Stacks
This game doesn’t have the sexy over/under game total of some of the more popular games to stack, which is one reason why I think it could carry less ownership overall. While Lamar Jackson & Mark Andrews will carry higher ownership at their positions, I think we can differentiate with some other players that could be valuable in this game.
My Favorite Stack: Lamar Jackson ($7,100) / Mark Andrews ($4,800) / Marquise Brown ($5,700) / JuJu Smith-Schuster ($6,400)
Both of these offenses are pretty concentrated when it comes to their target shares. Looking at Baltimore, Mark Andrews (23%) and Marquise Brown (24%) make up nearly half of Baltimore’s targets. Looking at the other side, JuJu has commanded 25% of the target share for Pittsburgh.
While Jackson & Andrews look to both carry ownership above 10% of the field, Brown & JuJu both look like they will be sub 10%, which differentiates us enough from the crowd.
At $24,000 this leaves us $5,200 remaining per player and with the value that could be on the board this week, we can round out a nice roster.
I like other players in this game as well. I will likely have 4-5 versions of this game stack. Here are some other players I will work into various variations.
- Diontae Johnson $4,400: 21% Target Share in weeks 3 & 4 with 50% market share of air yards.
- Nick Vannett $2,900: 38% market share of air yards and an aDOT of 13.5 in his debut with the Steelers. It was only two targets, but I also expect him to be utilized in the red zone with no real weapons outside of JuJu in the passing game.
- James Washington $4,400: Prior to week 4, Washington had 25% of the market share of air yards (25%) and only Smith-Schuster (26%) was ahead of him. He has a healthy aDOT of 15.6 and I think it is only a matter of time before he and his former college teammate Mason Rudolph connect for 1 or 2 long ones.
