GPP Stacks, Fades and Leverage Plays: Week 3
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 the first two weeks, there is a lot that stood out to me. Let's begin with some team splits; the Jacksonville Jaguars are throwing the ball 71% of the time, which may not lead to Trevor Lawerence's success, but has allowed the trio of wide receivers the opportunity to receive over seven targets a game.
Another interesting point is the Seattle Seahawks allowing 10.5 receptions a game to running backs, opening up the door for a hopeful smash spot with a healthy Dalvin Cook who could be in line for a five reception game on top of his normal carries if he plays. Finally, Joe Mixon dominates the backfield in Cincinnati, getting 100% of carries and 27 touches per game. He could potentially be a great leverage spot against a Steelers defense that is missing some key pieces.
For my GPP article this week, we are switching it up a little bit; you still have the player pools that I am using between each site, but instead of the mini dive, I want to dive deeper into game Stacks, mini stacks, and some one-offs. This layout will flow better and allow you to pick the lineup as you read the article. 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.
