DraftKings Picks Week 14: NFL DFS lineup advice for GPP tournaments
Oh no, we're building a FitzStack in Week 14. Correct that — this should be branded as a YOLOstack for the kind of glorious fantasy-friendly passes the Fins' QB will lob mainly to two players. It should lead to DraftKings GPP goodness, if nothing else.
This lineup will also bank on a running back missing Week 14 and ceding that workhorse role to a teammate who is not priced correctly after this Monday night development.
1 QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins @ Jets ($6,000)
Our FitzStack funnels nicely since the post-Preston Williams offense focusing on DeVante Parker has sent 63 percent of its air yards to Parker and Mike Gesicki. No one besides those two saw more than 10 percent against the Eagles on Sunday.
2 RB Devonta Freeman, Falcons vs. Panthers ($5,400)
Freeman topped 20 touches in largely negative game script during his return on Thanksgiving, so this affirmation of workload has gone underpriced. The matchup sets up well, as Carolina allows the most yards per rush and DK points to running backs.
3 RB Alexander Mattison, Vikings vs. Lions ($4,500)
Mattison saw each of the four carries after Dalvin Cook (shoulder/chest) exited on Monday night, and his 86 attempts on the season place him clearly at No. 2 in the workhorse pecking order with no other back on the roster collecting double-digit carries. This is a free square if Cook is out, but monitor that status.
4 WR Julian Edelman, Patriots vs. Chiefs ($7,100)
5 WR DeVante Parker, Dolphins @ Jets ($6,900)
Since Week 10, Parker ranks second in air yards market share among players on the slate logging multiple games. Obviously, you can't run a Fitzpatrick YOLO-ball stack without him.
6 WR Robby Anderson, Jets vs. Dolphins ($5,100)
Running it back on the other side of our FitzStack, as Anderson has recently gotten back into gear with Darnold despite dropping a touchdown last Sunday. His 47 percent air yards market share over the past two weeks ranks fourth among players on this slate.
7 TE Mike Gesicki, Dolphins @ Jets ($4,400)
Gesicki trails only Travis Kelce and Jared Cook in air yards over the past four weeks. Gesicki's matchup sets up much nicer than theirs this week, as the Jets defense must grapple with an injury to centerpiece Jamal Adams.
8 FLEX Leonard Fournette, Jaguars vs. Chargers ($7,800)
The Gardner Minshew-led Jags have shown far higher TD potential than with Foles, though Fournette targets have become a staple of this offense regardless. Fournette's 81 targets rank second to only Christian McCaffrey, who goes for $2,500 more. Getting Fournette in the FLEX since he plays in the later slot.
9 D/ST Falcons vs. Panthers ($3,000)
We get relatively cheap price here to fade a quarterback who PFF ranks second in turnover-worthy plays, and this despite not playing the first two games. Plus Atlanta just posted 26 DK points last month at Carolina, and we get an RB-defense correlation play with Freeman.
