There are two keys when it comes to taking down big field tournaments. One is game stacking - this means playing multiple players from one game as you believe that game will have one of the highest totals on the slate. Stacking gives you the best chance to take advantage of that high total. The second is finding the low ownership plays that end up exploding. You will shoot up the contest leaderboard if you have a player at 1 percent ownership with 20- 30 points. I will be using these rules to provide you with my favourite game stack and two to three sneaky low ownership plays (we can’t predict exact ownership but I will be targeting players that are projected to be under 10% ownership.
Favorite Game Stack - Bengals/Falcons
Not going to overthink this one give me all of the Bengals. They have been struggling all season on offense until last week. I see them continuing where they left off last week 100 percent. The Falcons have an awful pass defense. So far this season they have allowed the 10th most fantasy points to QB and the 3rd most fantasy points to WR. Some may be scared that this could be a Mixon game - I am not… he has been struggling all season as well. At this point they are just going to let Burrow air it out - see below for my stack ranked!
- Joe Burrow- $8,300
- Ja'Marr Chase - $8,500
- Tee Higgins - $7,000
- Kyle Pitts - $5,900
Sneaky Plays with Short Explanations
DK Metcalf - $6,900
DK is match-up proof. He is coming off a weird dud against the cardinals. In this spot i don't see that happening again. They will have to score to keep this game close and they won't halve the 12th man to help them. This price is too cheap and a lot of the public won't play him just based on what happened last week. I’ll take the dip in ownership. Chargers will be winning and the Hawks will be forced to pass. On top of that lockett is dealing with a hamstring injury.
Allen Lazard - $6,600
I’ve been playing lazard every week. He is Rodger’s favorite redzone target, scoring in every game but one. Commanders struggle against the pass allowing the 6th most points to wide receivers. I’ll take this price any day of the week.
I wish you good luck ladies and gentleman. LET'S TAKE ONE DOWN.
