I’m going to highlight plays that have tournament winning upside and how I’ll be building my lineups. We have a 2 game slate to wrap up Week 6. Let’s get into it!
Patrick Mahomes– I’m starting my single entry lineups with Mahomes and he will be a primary target for me in MME. Mahomes is currently in the highest projected and highest rated 4 man game stack in the Rise or Fall NFL Top Stacks tool. That paired with a 31 point implied total makes me very interested in Mahomes.
Kyler Murray– This really comes down to Dallas giving up 36 points per game. Arizona will score points and Murray will be the focal point. Dallas is getting gashed on the ground giving up 155.8 yards per game via the NFL Study Hub. I expect Murray to throw in the neighborhood of 35 attempts and he could get 100 yards on the ground in this spot with multiple scores.
Ezekiel Elliot– Quite simply, he’s the best running back on the board. He is the only running back on the slate that I can trust will get a heavy workload. Zeke’s market share of 68% (via NFL Study Hub) should increase with Andy Dalton taking over at quarterback. I’m locking in Zeke for single entry and he will be my highest exposed back in MME.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire– The Buffalo defense is getting gashed on the ground to the tune of 157.6 yards per game. Clyde could get a heavy workload early if Buffalo locks up the Chiefs’ passing attack. I’m not opposed to pairing Clyde with Mahomes as he sees a decent volume of targets. This could be a spot where we see Clyde finally get the positive touchdown regression we’ve been waiting for.
DeAndre Hopkins– Hopkins currently ranks as WR1 in the Rise or Fall Study Hub projections and WR2 in ratings. He has the 2nd highest market share on the slate at his position as he has emerged as Murray’s favorite target. I’ll have Hopkins regardless whether he is in a stack or not.
Stefon Diggs– Like Hopkins, Diggs has been a market share monster coming in as WR1 on this slate. Diggs is popping in the NFL Top Stacks tool for projection, rating, and value. I’m locking in Diggs for single entry and I will have a massive amount of exposure in MME.
Travis Kelce– Kelce is the only tight end on this slate that I am prioritizing. Kelce is popping in the NFL Top Stacks tool for projections, ratings, and has a market share of around 25%. Kelce has gotten at least 6 targets every game this season making him an outlier at his position on this slate.
If you do not want to pay up for Kelce, I’d run Dalton Schultz or Dan Arnold.
See ya in discord,
