The Patriots offense has been under a lot of scrutiny this season. However, one thing we can count on from them is an opponent-specific game plan. Three weeks ago against a porous Vikings pass defense, the Patriots went pass-heavy and attacked them successfully. I believe the same could happen this week, which has me very interested in Mac Jones stacks at a cheap price tag. Jones had his best game of the season against the Vikings, scoring 26.3 Draftkings points, and a similar game would have him putting your roster on a great pace. Making this even more attractive is the fact that he has a lot of very cheap stacking options that you could play two of and get around 60 combined points from while opening yourself up to some high-ceiling players on the rest of your roster.
Late in the season we often see rookie skill players, especially wide receivers, take big steps in their development and become greater focal points of their teams. Drake London matched his season high in targets with 12 in the last Falcons game before their bye. The Falcons have also moved to rookie Desmond Ridder at quarterback, so they are likely to throw the ball more than they did with Marcus Mariota. An ascending young talent with a growing role is a spot we want to be ahead of and his price and ownership are likely to be much higher over the last three weeks of the season than they are this week. This isn’t a “can’t miss” matchup, but I want to be in on London early.
