Musings on FanDuel Week Six QB/WR and QB/TE Stacks

As I work through my list of notes from the Week Six news I've accumulated while writing my columns this week, I'm noticing some enticing opportunities for QB/WR or QB/TE stacks during the upcoming Sunday slates.

I'll be watching to see Odell Beckham Jr.'s ($9,100) injury status on Friday and Saturday - I like Eli Manning ($7,800) and Beckham in a probable shootout with the Eagles if Beckham makes it to probable by Saturday. Last week, Philadelphia gave up 26/43 for 335 yards passing, two TDs and one interception to Drew Brees and company - they coughed up 31/46 for 290 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown to Kirk Cousins and company two weeks ago. Their pass D is among the most porous in the NFL averaging 279.6 net passing yards per game (26th in the NFL), while giving up eight passing scores so far - and the Giants' pass D is even worse, so this game should light up the score board like crazy. Maning/Donnell ($5,300) is also worth a look, especially if Beckham scratches - I might even go all in with a Manning/Beckham/Donnell three-deep stack for this week in a few lineups depending on Beckham's progress.

Brian Hoyer ($6,700)/DeAndre Hopkins ($8,500) - Jacksonville has but one interception this year, mitigating the usual turnover risk with Hoyer, and neither D is very good - this is another potential shootout in my opinion. Blake Bortles ($7,300) is less attractive to me as I'm not sure how long his sprained throwing-arm shoulder will hold up - I am fading Jaguars this week after playing a good bit of Robinson/Yeldon last week. If Bortles is forced out Chad Henne can sling the ball around the field well enough to keep the game going, but I like the Texans' stack better this week.

A likely-little-owned stack of Teddy Bridgewater ($6,600)/Mike Wallace ($5,400) or Bridgewater/Adam Thielen ($4,500)  is also on my radar for this week as the Chiefs' D has been soft and leads the NFL in TD passes allowed (13 and counting) - now their offense is a shambles with Jamaal Charles out for the season. Charles Johnson looks like he may play but his ribs injury has been limiting him for weeks and he has only eight targets this season. Thielen is second on the wide receivers' roster with 12 targets this year for 8/86/0 behind only Wallace (24 for 20/233/1 so far). With only $900 separating Wallace from Thielen I may lean to Wallace if Wallace practices fully on Friday, or play both variations in a small GPP.

Sunday is almost here! Enjoy all Y'all!
