Week 17 GPP Stacks
Stacks are correlation plays that are ideal in tournaments because they help your lineup differentiate from the crowd while simultaneously putting more upside in your lineup’s range of outcomes. Unique stacks should always be in consideration and here are some of my favorites this week:
Drew Brees and Michael Thomas
DraftKings: $14,200 – 28.4% of total salary
FanDuel: $16,400 – 27.3% of total salary
The Saints still have plenty to play for as the NFC South remains up for grabs. Thus, expect their starters to play the entire game. Drew Brees hasn’t unlocked his upside too many times this season, but he has a chance to this week against a Buccaneers defense that ranks fourth worst in pass DVOA and that has allowed the MOST passing yards in the league this season. And with Michael Thomas a week removed from a small hamstring issue, he has the potential to go bonkers in this one. Remember, Thomas ranks sixth in targets, fourth in receptions, and seventh in receiving yards on the season. He’s been a beast all year and the Saints project to utilize him in a big way once again in a very important game.
