This Is the Week

It feels like the planets are aligning for us large-field degenerates. Plenty of pay-up-to-be-contrarian spots to exploit. It feels almost too easy to play the chalk wisely or pivot off completely. There isn’t an obvious chalk defense for us to agonize over. Yay!

I LOVE Week 11.

Secondary Core-Relations

We’re always hunting for those high-ceiling combinations to add to our existing game stacks. It’s better to aim at getting four things right instead of trying to hit a nine-way parlay. I’ll lean on a handful of core secondary stacks that will be finessed into lineups whenever feasible.

Nico Collins/James Conner

If Collins remains at his sub 5%, he may be the GPP play of the year. Grabbing low owned pieces of the most popular game is always a smooth move but when they have slate-breaking upside, I get tingly feelings in my nether region. 

Conner will have some ownership so maybe we fade the Cardinals altogether? Playing Collins and the Texans DST (3%) describes a scenario where Houston makes big plays early and Cardinals play catch-up. Lots of Kyler Murray dropbacks that lead to sacks and turnovers. Cardinals targets are spread out enough that no one posts a score that you can’t live without. 

Christian McCaffrey/Mike Evans

I’m sticking with my “while playing fantasy football, always try to roster the best fantasy football player” philosophy and inserting CMC into approximately 40% of my rosters. It would really help his ceiling if the 49ers were pushed a little. It won’t take a lot for the Buccaneers to eclipse the sad efforts of the Jaguars last week. 

If the Bucs do make a game out of this, it will likely come via the Baker Mayfield/Mike Evans connection. Evans has been Mayfield’s most common first read on long and short passes this season. He also historically matches up well against the 49ers single-high cover scheme. I like Evans’ chances of reaching 100 yards and paydirt more than his ownership projection of 2.5% would indicate.

Austin Ekeler/Romeo Doubs  

I like this pairing on FanDuel because of the red zone role each player possesses. 

*isn’t “possesses” a super weird word? WTF?

Ekeler will be semi-popular, making Doubs (.5%) a nice piece to offset your lineup’s ownership concerns while simultaneously betting on this game environment. These players are fine in game stacks, particularly of the less-expensive Jordan Love variety, but could also get there as correlated pieces in the sexy stacks of C.J. Stroud, Kyler Murray, or Justin Fields.
