NFL DFS GPP – Stick’s Stacks for Week One

Published

on

The wait is over. Week One is here and it’s time to start reserving your entries and building your lineups for some NFL DFS GPP action. Personally, I think the edge DFS players once had in DFS cash games is starting to decrease drastically, so I am really excited to continue using the majority of my DFS bankroll towards the NFL DFS GPP space. For those of you who still prefer playing more cash games, be sure to check out my article for your Week One Cash Game Picks.

The purpose of this weekly article is to identify team/game stacks that we are going to use for an NFL DFS GPP. For those of you that don’t know, a “team stack” is simply multiple players from the same team. A “game stack” is similar, except we are going to use players from both teams in a given game. Focusing on team stacks and game stacks is incredibly useful in the NFL DFS GPP environment. That being said, let’s get to the plays!

Top Game Stacks

San Francisco 49ers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (51.5)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – As soon as Bruce Arians was named the head coach in Tampa Bay, I immediately put the Bucs on my radar for Week One NFL DFS. The Bucs are going to play at a fast pace and pass the ball all over the field – which should hopefully lead to a lot of fantasy points against a less-than-stellar San Francisco 49ers’ defensive unit. Please note that I rarely ever use four players from the same team in one lineup – it’s usually best to stick to a max of three players from one team. Here are the guys from Tampa Bay that I’ll be stacking together in my NFL DFS GPP lineup:

  • Jameis Winston
  • Mike Evans
  • Chris Godwin
  • O.J. Howard

San Francisco 49ers – Well, if I think the Tampa Bay offense is going to score at will, I should probably get some players on the 49ers’ side of the ball. The 49ers will also be playing at a high pace, trying to hang around in this shootout matchup against the Bucs (who also happen to have a very weak defense). Using players on both teams in this game is a great example of our “game stacks”. This game is going to be high scoring and you’re going to want exposure to it in your NFL DFS GPP. Players to consider for your stack:

  • Jimmy Garoppolo
  • George Kittle
  • Matt Breida
  • Tevin Coleman
  • Dante Pettis
  • Marquise Goodwin

Kansas City Chiefs @ Jacksonville Jaguars (52)

Kansas City Chiefs – The Chiefs have the highest implied total on the Vegas board that is currently sitting around 28 points. We all know how explosive this offense can be so we don’t need to dive into a whole lot here. Kansas City is going to score points and it seems the DFS public is a bit scared of this matchup against what used to be a stout defense in Jacksonville. I’m all for using two to three Chiefs in my lineups (if I can afford their salaries). Key players I’m targeting:

  • Patrick Mahomes
  • Tyreek Hill
  • Travis Kelce
  • Damien Williams (tread lightly now that LeSean McCoy is on the team, but don’t 100% avoid Williams. He can be a great leverage play at less than 10% ownership)
  • Sammy Watkins

Jacksonville Jaguars – The Chiefs are going to score points in this game and Jacksonville is only a three-point underdog in Vegas. This tells me Vegas is confident that the new Jacksonville offense, under John DeFilippo, can score points in this game as well. I don’t love getting a lot of exposure to the Jaguars due to the fact we really don’t know who’s going to get opportunities in this offense yet. We do need to get some exposure though if we’re going to use Vegas to our advantage and stack the highest total on their board in our NFL DFS GPP.

  • Leonard Fournette
  • Dede Westbrook
  • Nick Foles

Top Team Stacks

Minnesota Vikings I’m targeting the Vikings’ offense for four reasons:

  1. All of their prices on DFS sites are criminally low
  2. The Atlanta Falcons’ defense is a plus-matchup for any competent offense in the NFL until further notice
  3. Kirk Cousins has a career passer rating of 97.5 when playing at home
  4. The Atlanta Falcons and Dan Quinn’s defensive scheme absolutely bleeds fantasy points to opposing running backs… Hello, Dalvin Cook (he will be a chalky play though).

In my NFL DFS GPP lineups that do not key on San Francisco @ Tampa Bay, the Vikings offense will most likely be my main pivot. If you want to roll out some Vikings in your lineup, it’s not a bad idea to use guys like Devonta Freeman, Julio Jones, or Calvin Ridley on the other side in hopes this game shoots-out. Key Minnesota Vikings stack candidates:

  • Dalvin Cook
  • Stefon Diggs
  • Kirk Cousins
  • Adam Thielen

Detroit Lions – Yes, you are reading this correctly, I’m on board with stacking up the Detroit Lions offense in a NFL DFS GPP in Week One, against what should be a terrible Arizona defense. They are going to be incredibly low-owned and a great place to pivot or even to add to your main game stack lineup. My only concern is that the Lions play at a very slow pace… so let’s hope Kyler Murray and the Cardinals can score some points. We need Matthew Stafford and company to move the ball up and down the field on offense, not just run the clock out. Key Lions to stack (maybe get shares of David Johnson on the other side to have a mini-game stack):

  • Kenny Golladay
  • Kerryon Johnson
  • Marvin Jones Jr.
  • Matthew Stafford
