We are just beyond the halfway point of the 2016 NFL season and by now we have all experienced the highs and lows of daily fantasy football. The season is a grind but you have to stay the course and use what you learn each week and apply it to your new lineups each week. Here are our week 9 top quarterback and wide receiver stacks.
Packers: QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson
The Packers stack containing Rodgers and Nelson is my favorite in week 9. First off, Green Bay has the highest projected team total of the week at 30.5 points. Secondly, their team has been hit with injuries with Randall Cobb, Ty Montgomery, and James Starks all missing last week’s game. And lastly, the Packers go up against the Colts who are allowing the second-most passing yards in the league with 287.8. Also, the Colts top cornerback Vontae Davis suffered a concussion last week and could be out this week which makes Nelson even more of a threat.
Saints: QB Drew Brees and WR Michael Thomas
Vegas projects the Saints and 49ers game will be the second highest game total of the week at 52 points. While most players will be targeting the Packers game, a Saints stack will be lower owned and still could have a huge output. New Orleans .as the 4th fastest pace in the NFL, while San Francisco leads the league so this game could end up with a lot of fantasy points. The best stack option to play alongside Brees is Michael Thomas. Thomas leads the team in targets the last five weeks with 8.8 targets per week.
Rams: QB Case Keenum and WR Kenny Britt
Looking for a cheap/low owned stack this week? Then look no further than the Rams and Keenum and Britt as they face the Panthers defense. Carolina has given up the most fantasy point to opposing quarterbacks the past four weeks. Britt has been targeted 16 times in the last two weeks and is the number one option for the Rams.
