Welcome to the NFL Week 7 optimal lineup pivots for DraftKings and FanDuel! I’m going to go over the optimal lineups using the Team Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub projections, 4 man game stack, and potential pivots that have tournament winning upside. Let’s get into it!
There’s a lot to like here. Houston is facing Green Bay with an implied game total of 56.5. I will definitely have exposure to this game. Davante Adams is my top run back option from the Green Bay side for this stack.
Terry McLaurin is the top value Wide Receiver on the slate in the NFL Study Hub. Dallas is giving up 32.16 fantasy points per game to opposing Wide Receivers. Love the play and he will be in a lot of my lineups in tournaments.
Kareem Hunt ranks as RB3 and Chris Carson ranks as RB8 in the NFL Study Hub projections. Both are priced in the mid-range and grade out as good values. Cannot complain.
D.J. Moore grades out as a good value but, I don’t plan on attacking the New Orleans defense with an implied total of 21.5.
Houston Stack– Using the NFL Top Stacks Tool, I’d prefer the top 4 man value stack of Deshaun Watson, Will Fuller, Brandin Cooks, and Davante Adams. This gets you exposure to a game that has shootout potential and Adams is WR1 in the NFL Study Hub projections.
Giovanni Bernard– At $4,500, Bernard will be one of the top value plays of the slate with Joe Mixon inactive vs Cleveland. If Bernard gets a large portion of Mixon’s 72% market share, Bernard should smash value. Pivoting Bernard allows you to get to more of the highly projected studs as well.
Alvin Kamara– At $7,900, Kamara has an appealing matchup against Caloina. In the NFL Study Hub Gameflow tab, we can see that Carolina is giving up 24.47 fantasy points per game to running backs. On top of that, Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are inactive for this matchup. Kamara should be a usage monster and could have a ceiling game in this spot.
Just like on DraftKings, we have a Houston stack but, we have Aaron Jones as a run back. That game definitely stands out in the NFL Study Hub projections and will be a priority target for me in tournaments. Watson comes in at QB4, Fuller comes in at WR9, and Jones comes in at RB2 in the NFL Study Hub projections. All really good plays.
D.K. Metcalf– Metcalf comes in at WR5 in the NFL Study Hub projections and Seattle has a 29.75 implied total. One of my favorite plays on the slate.
Bills Defense– The Bills have a matchup against the Jets who have an implied total of 16.75. No problem attacking the Jets in this spot.
Seattle Stack– If I’m going to go with a new stack, it’ll be the top projected stack in the NFL Top Stacks tool. Russel Wilson, Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, and DeAndre Hopkins make a great stack with a ton of upside. Seattle gives up a whopping 38.4 fantasy points per game to opposing Wide Receivers via the NFL Study Hub. This is a great game to stack.
Giovanni Bernard– Just as on DraftKings, Bernard is going to be a tremendous value and frees up a ton of salary for the studs. I expect Bernard to get a large portion of the Running Back work on Sunday.
Antonio Gibson– Gibson projects as the second best Running Back value on the slate and is facing a Dallas defense that gives up 173.3 rushing yards per game. An absolute dream spot for Gibson and he should excel.
Kenny Golladay– Golladay projects as WR10 in the NFL Study Hub projections and Detroit has an implied total of 27. Golladay gets 23% of the Lions’ targets and Atlanta is giving up 30.32 fantasy points per game to opposing Wide Receivers.
See ya in discord,
