Week 5 has arrived and boy are there some juicy match ups. This week we have one of the highest over/unders in history with the Steelers against the Falcons. The Falcons are dealing with a banged up secondary, and the Steelers defense is just flat out bad. There have only been 6 games in history with a total above 57 and this games total is currently at 58. I think it is hard to get away from this game even in tournaments so I will stack this games weapons while pairing them with a couple of my favorite GPP QB and WR stacks.
Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey
This week I’m going back to the pairing that’s been money all year. Again, I know he isn’t a wide receiver, but he’s seen the 4th most targets which creates enough opportunity to become a great stack. This duo is back home after a bye week, and they will be welcomed by the New York Giants who rank 5th worst on defense. Cam Newton offers an extremely safe floor while also offering one of the highest ceilings. He is currently first in carries, rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns with 3. I love pairing Cam Newton with his favorite weapon in Christian Mccaffrey, who is averaging the fourth-most fantasy points per game at the running back position. The Giants have allowed the fourth most rushing yards per game which will allow both Cam and Christian to run wild all game. I will have close to 100% ownership this week in Cam Newton. Fire this duo up with confidence!
Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs
This is one of the sneakier stacks of the week. The Vikings go up against a tough defense in Philadelphia who is allowing the fewest rushing yards per game but is also allowing the 4th most fantasy points to wideouts. Cousins will have no choice but to throw all game and that’s how to beat Philly. Kirk Cousins currently has the most passing attempts in the league at 189! Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have been the main beneficiaries of all these targets with Thielen seeing a league-high 56 targets and Diggs seeing 44. This will be a great trio to target this week in GPPS with everyone on the Steelers and Falcons wideouts. Might I add, this is a must-win for the Vikings too!
Good luck as always!
