The Houston Texans open at New England week 1. Should be points on the board. Steelers are at Cleveland and the Los Angeles Chargers are home to Kansas City. Both these games could be wild for Daily Fantasy Sports.

Seven Fantasy Football Quarterback Wide Receiver Stacks (PPR League)

1. Desaun Watson/DeAndre Hopkins

DeAndre Hopkins is the best Fantasy Football Wide Receiver at the moment. Coming off three straight seasons with 151+ targets. Entering his prime. He might just be the guy in 2018. Potentially seeing 160+ targets, 90+ targets, 1k+ yards and double digit+. Hopkins is a great pick if your drafting third overall or later. It might just be a wild season for D Hop!

2017 – 174 Targets: 96 receptions, 1,378 yards, 13 touchdowns.

2016 – 151 Targets: 78 receptions, 954 yards, 4 touchdowns.

2015 – 192 Targets: 111 receptions, 1,521 yards, 11 touchdowns.

2014 – 127 Targets: 76 receptions, 1,210 yards, 6 touchdowns.

2013 – 91 Targets: 52 receptions, 802 yards, 2 touchdowns.

Will Fuller is intriguing but at this point just DFS value. Week 1 @ New England. Dude had multiple touchdown potential weekly. A good dart. So much hype for Desaun Watson. Why not go for DeAndre. He is a beast and Watson definitely can get him the ball. Expecting Watson’s production to dip. D Hop will still produce for the Texans here and regardless of the QB. Assuming a healthy Watson and it staying that way for at least 10 games. That is productive?

 

2. Big Ben has Antonio Brown entering his 9th season and produced 100+ receptions (154+ targets in 5 straight seasons). A solid number #1 receiver to pick year in and year out. I have more reservations towards the wiley vet Big Ben? Watson is my pick indeed. Dropping Brown to #2.

2017 – Targets 163: 101 receptions, 1,533 yards and 9 touchdowns.

2016 – Targets 154: 106 receptions, 1,284 yards and 12 touchdowns.

2015 – Targets 193: 136 receptions, 1,834 yards and 10 touchdowns.

2014 – Targets 181: 129 receptions, 1,698 yards and 13 touchdowns.

2013 – Targets 167: 110 receptions, 1,499 yards and 8 touchdowns.

2012 – Targets 106: 66 receptions, 787 yards and 5 touchdowns.

2011 – Targets 124: 69 receptions, 1,108 yards and 2 touchdowns.

2010 – Targets 19: 16 receptions for 167 yards.

 

3. Keenan Allen in 2017 went for 159 targets, 102 receptions, 1,393 yards and 6 touchdowns. The Phillip Rivers stack should be there again in 2018. 100+ receptions on 150+ targets is enticing!

4. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones

148 targets in 2017 and 203 in 2015. 129 targets in 2016 was in 14 games. Julio is in his prime.

5. Drew Brees and Michael Thomas

Another anticipated 4,000 passing yards for Drew Brees and a healthy number #1 receiving option. In an explosive offense that is advantageous for playmakers. The working man’s Michael Thomas is the best at what he does. Entering year 3, he is already a top Fantasy Football option. Itd be nice to see a few game changing performances from the consistent Thomas.

2017

149 targets: 104 receptions, 1,245 yards, 5 touchdowns.

2016

121 targets: 92 receptions, 1,137 yards, 9 touchdowns.

6. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green good for 130+ targets, 80+ receptions, 1,300+ yards and 8+ touchdowns.

AJ Green is a stud and a lock for targets every year. Clearly a viable 2nd round pick. Probably lower on my board when in comparison to ADP. his DFS stacking opportunity is always there.

7. Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams are good for 120 targets, 75 receptions, 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns. Adams needs to stay healthy!

As Always,

(Teams Going Off + Thoughts Flexed In) = Combination Lineups

May the Fantasy Force Be With You.
