GPP Stacks, Fades and Leverage Plays: Week 11
Excluding Christian McCaffrey's rookie season with Jonathan Stewart, Cam Newton and McCaffrey have scored over 20 DK points in the same game in 44% of games played. The narrative regarding McCaffrey's lack of production with Newton pertains to touchdowns but not overall production. McCaffrey will continue to be heavily targeted and present a high floor on DraftKings.
Patrick Mahomes has five games with over 28 DraftKings points—in those games, he has 26 attempts of 20+ air yards with 14 completions for 474 yards, six touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. He has 22 such attempts, five completions for 127 yards, zero touchdowns, and two interceptions in the other five games. Mahomes is directly linked to his ability to throw the ball downfield, and Dallas has not been tested down the field much this year.
Of the wide receivers with at least 40 targets, Deebo Samuel and Cooper Kupp are the only two averaging over three yards per route run. Samuel may lead the NFL in drops, but he is still getting the job done with the routes he is running.
For my GPP article this week, you have the player pools that I am using between each site and game stacks, mini stacks, and some one-offs. The player pool is designed to simplify lineup builds. I will mention Z-Score quite a bit and if you don't know what Z-Score is, check out the preseason article I wrote by clicking here.
If you haven't checked out the DFS Playbook, please do so because it will guide you on how to approach each position, and you can align that with some of the plays you will read below.
