Daily Fantasy Football Top Stacks for FanDuel and DraftKings Week 11 - 11/18/18
Welcome back football fans. The Week 11 main slate is a bit tricky on the surface as there are six teams on a bye but the real issue is that six other very fantasy viable teams are playing in Primetime. This is where the Player Lab really comes in handy to break down and find the best matchups. Let's dig in and take a look at a couple of the top stacking options that stand out when using the DFSR tools.

This is the first week of the season using the Player Lab where I used up to four filters and it produced this many options. Looking at games with high vegas totals that include quarterbacks with projected for 40+ attempts on teams that rely heavily on passing for total yards and touchdown, the Player Lab spit out five quarterbacks. Of those five players, three are averaging over 300 yards passing per game and below I will highlight two of them. Let's get started.
Quarterback - Carson Wentz
Primary Target - Zach Ertz
Secondary Target - Golden Tate
Carson Wentz missed the first two games of the season recovering from injury and while he let us down in Week 3, he has been extremely consistent since. In those six games, he has thrown for 300+ yards four times with multiple touchdowns in each game and averaged 24.6 DraftKings/ 21.9 FanDuel points per game. I list Zach Ertz as my primary target here for a couple reasons starting with his elite floor and upside. He is fourth among all pass catchers in the league with an average of 11.1 targets per game and has an elite 75% catch rate and is 11th overall with 789 receiving yards. What I like even more is that roster construction seems to favor paying up for multiple elite running backs making it tough to fit Ertz in your lineup forcing people to punt at the tight end position. Not that Ertz will be super low owned as he is in a class of his own but stacking him with Wentz and then getting an elite running back could help separate a bit in GPP formats. After Ertz, I like pairing Wentz with newcomer, Golden Tate. He had a rough first game with his new team catching just two of four targets and could be overlooked this week in an elite matchup. The Saints have given up the second-most passing yards per game(296.1) and the game script is also in the Eagles favor as the Saints are 8.5 point favorites which should lead to a ton of passing. I love "naked" Wentz in cash games this week and the upside in this matchup is through the roof meaning he is also an elite GPP play with his TE or WR.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Quarterback - Ryan Fitzpatrick
Primary Target - Mike Evans
Last week's Bucs game was one for the ages. Just looking at the score you would think Fitzmagic legged an egg. Check out the highlights, however, and that just wasn't the case as Fitz moved the ball down the field with ease over and over again. The problems arose when the Bucs got onto the opponent's side of the field which led to an endzone interception, Rodgers fumble into the endzone, and multiple dropped passes and missed field goals. Despite all that went wrong, Fitz ended up with 400+ passing yards for the third straight game and fourth time in six starts. At his current price, I will be going back to the well this week as the attempts should most definitely be there and as you can see with the pic at the top of the article, the Bucs rely on the pass for total yards and total touchdowns more than any other team. With so many other wideouts in the mix at the top this week and with his 34% catch rate over the last three weeks, I think Mike Evans will be low owned with a ton of upside. The matchup isn't too shabby either as the Giants own the 25th ranked DVOA passing defense despite ranking Top 10 against QB's and WR's when looking at fantasy points.
