NFL Plays: Vegas Odds (Week 11) November 19, 2016  |  Justin Bales


Games to Attack

Tennessee Titans vs Indianapolis Colts 

The Titans are an interesting offense. They have been on fire recently, and they have a clear cut three players to stack: Marcus Mariota, DeMarco Murray, and Delanie Walker. Rishard Matthews has been on a touchdown tear recently, though, and he’s a great option at wide receiver if you’re looking for a high upside option. Frank Gore continues to make a good option for the Colts, and while he doesn’t have the upside needed in tournaments, he’s a good cash game play for his price. Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, and Donte Moncrief are the three best players to stack for the Colts, while Jack Doyle can also be used in tournaments. There’s a reason this game is set at 53.5 points, as both offenses can score points in a hurry.

New England Patriots vs San Francisco 49ers

This is an interesting matchup. The game is set at 51.5 points, but the Patriots are 14 point favorites, which means this game will likely get out of hand quick. Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, and Martellus Bennett can all be used, but they are best suited for tournaments because of the projected game script. LeGarrette Blount will likely be used to run the clock out in the second half, and he’s the best option for New England. The 49ers will likely be losing most of this game, which means they will be throwing. Colin Kaepernick, Jeremy Kerley, Quinton Patton, and Vance McDonald all have good upside, but they are tournament only options this week.

 

Green Bay Packers at Washington Redskins 

The Green Bay Packers are lacking a running game right now, which makes them an easy team to target. Aaron Rodgers has been throwing the ball as much as any quarterback in the NFL, while Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams have been his favorite targets. Randall Cobb, Ty Montgomery, James Starks, and Richard Rodgers can all be used in tournaments, but there are better options on this slate. Rob Kelley is a solid volume option for the Redskins, but he is facing a tough defense this week. Kirk Cousins is the much better option, and he can be stacked with Jamison Crowder and Jordan Reed. Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis can also be used in tournaments.

Games to Avoid

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings

This is a game that can nearly completely be avoided. David Johnson, Larry Fitzgerald, and Stefon Diggs can all be used based on their weekly volume, but both teams have great defenses and should be able to limit their opponents’ scoring. This game is set at only 41 points, and it would be best suited to only use the defenses in the matchup.

 

 

Miami Dolphins vs Los Angeles Rams

This is another game that is set at only 41 points, which is a bit surprising. Jay Ajayi is the highest upside option for the Dolphins, while Jarvis Landry, DeVante Parker, and Kenny Stills all come with some type of tournament upside. With that being said, there are better options on this slate. Jared Goff is finally starting for the Rams, and while he won’t make a great option, he may help some of the Rams players. Todd Gurley has more potential, as the Dolphins may not be able to load eight in the box if Goff can make them pay early. Kenny Britt and Lance Kendricks are the best receiving options, while Tavon Austin also possesses a bit of upside. Again, there are likely better options on this slate.

 

Baltimore Ravens vs Dallas Cowboys

This game opened at only 43.5 points, which was surprising, but the Cowboys are 7 point favorites, which means they could score a bit this week. Steve Smith, Mike Wallace, and Dennis Pitta all possess upside, and the Ravens should be throwing for most of the game. As always, Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant, and Cole Beasley can all be used for the Cowboys. This isn’t the best game to stack, though, and these players are best suited to be used individually in lineups.

THAT JUST HAPPENED: RUNNING BACKS, PART I Don’t call it a comeback, they’ve been here for years. Sure, in 2015 running backs made tears rain down like a monsoon, but in 2016 the position reclaimed its fantasy dominance.  Rocking its peers and putting suckas in fear. That’s the narrative, anyway.  No doubt David ...

That Just Happened: Quarterbacks, Part II

  In Part I, I took a look at the quarterback position from a macro level. Now it’s time to dig into the details. To say Aaron Rodgers was the QB1 in 2016, or that Dak Prescott was QB6, isn’t very informative. Rodgers’s ranking might undersell how insanely valuable he was, ...
