GPP Stacks, Fades and Leverage Plays: Week 2

I want to make you guys a better tournament player throughout the season and give insight into how I adapt my process. To do this, we need to continue to get more information, and after Week 1, there is a lot that stood out to me for Week 2 pricing. For starters, Javonte Williams received more carries than Melvin Gordon in Week 1, and DraftKings has Gordon $1500 more expensive. James Robinson is more expensive than Ezekiel Elliott, Najee Harris, Chris Carson, and David Montgomery, even though he struggled heavily against the Houston Texans, and they had a 75% pass rate. Finally, Darrell Henderson dominated the backfield in Week 1, getting 70% of the carries and running a route 78% of the time and yet is still sub $6,000 on DraftKings.

For my GPP articles every week, the layout is simple: you have two player pools that I am using between each site, a quick dive into each player, my top three stacks, and my top three leverage spots. The player pool is designed to simplify lineup builds, and if you feel like playing someone that fits into the lineup, but isn't in my pool, then go for it. The dive into each player contains Z-Score based on our projections and quick reasoning for making the player pool. If you don't know what Z-Score is, check out the preseason article I wrote by clicking here.

The two tools I am using the most when considering building my lineups are the DFS Correlation Tool and the Stack Value Report at 4for4.

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.
