Despite three games on Thanksgiving, we have a nice 12 game slate on Sunday in the NFL and one game on Monday night. There are going to be a lot of options from a daily fantasy perspective so it is extremely important to construct your roster with favorable matchups. We are going to break down some stacks that could end up being lower owned. Let’s get after it in week 12!
Tom Brady & Martellus Bennett, New England Patriots
This is a very interesting stack this week. The matchup is almost too good to be true and Brady absolutely lights up the Jets. The best part of this stack is a lot of fantasy owners will shy away from Bennett after getting burned last week when he had just one catch for 14 yards on two targets. Bennett is capable of having a multi-touchdown game again this week against a Jets passing defense that gives up tons of fantasy points in the passing game. The Brady/Bennett stack is one of my favorites this weekend and I will be using them in the majority of my lineups.
Carson Wentz & Dorial Green-Beckham & Zach Ertz, Philadelphia Eagles
I do not normally play triple stacks very often but this week Wentz, Green-Beckham and Ertz looks extremely profitable. The Eagles go up against the struggling Packers on Monday night. The Packers defense can not stop anyone at this point in the season and are allowing huge games to opposing teams. Wentz should be able to have time in the pocket to find his open receivers all night and is in a good spot to put up a lot of points. Tight end Ertz is coming off an 11 target week and will once again be the safety net for Wentz. Green-Beckham is coming off a very impressive game with eight targets and a touchdown. I love this stack because it is pretty inexpensive and has the potential to put up a lot of fantasy points.
Russell Wilson & Doug Baldwin, Seattle Seahawks
Both Wilson and Baldwin have been consistent over the last few weeks and should continue the trend again this week. Wilson has recorded three straight weeks of over 25 fantasy points and Baldwin has scored over 22 fantasy points in the last two weeks. This week they will travel to Tampa Bay and face off with the Buccaneers who have one of the worst pass defenses in the league. Most owners tend to use the Seahawks running backs as of late, but really Wilson and Baldwin have both been over performing their salaries. I see another solid week from this stack and I prefer them in cash contest over tournaments in daily fantasy.
