Game Stack of the week: Philadelphia vs. Atlanta

In what is likely to be the most action-packed game of the slate, the battle of the birds will likely shape up to be a high-flying affair. Hurts has been given the reigns to the offense officially and he flashed immense potential last season. Against the swiss cheese defense in Atlanta, he likely won't find much resistance in week one.

Likewise, Matt Ryan shouldn't have any serious problems getting his offense rolling. Even without Julio Jones, the Falcons aren't lacking any air raid weapons. Look to rookie tight end Kyle Pitts to explode onto the scene as the defense scrambles to cover Calvin Ridley.

Stack Philly: Jalen Hurts / Miles Sanders / Dallas Goedert

Stack Atlanta: Matt Ryan / Calvin Ridley / Kyle Pitts

Game Stacks:

Budget-Friendly Stack of the Week: Cincinnati Bengals

Let's be honest with ourselves, drafting Bengals in season-long formats feels a bit anxiety-inducing. But with a positive week one matchup against a vulnerable Vikings defense there is potential for a big return.

I'm certainly not going to pretend to know which receiver will be the man to play. The trio they have are all immensely talented and Joe Burrow should have no issue finding whichever one is open. In a head-to-head I'd likely take Tyler Boyd, but in a tournament, I like the upside of Ja'Marr Chase. Either way, until we see the team play there really isn't a right or wrong choice here.

Best Stack: Joe Burrow / Joe Mixon / Tee Higgins

Alternative Stack: Joe Burrow / Tyler Boyd / Ja'marr Chase

Boom or Bust Stack: San Fransisco 49ers

When playing the Lions, historically one of two things has happened. Either you score a lot and win, or score a lot and lose. Given the change at QB this year the Lions will likely have a tough time offensively this year. But Jarred Goff has surprised us before. The Niners also lost their defensive coordinator and may suffer from a slow start as well. Regardless, my point is simply this could either be a high-flying shootout, or a 9-6 snoozer. But with Mostert, Samuel, and Brandon Aiyuk (Q) all under $6,000 there is certainly potential for a return of value.

A Few to Consider:

Seahawks: Metcalf may feel a bit pricey, but with Tyler Lockett nursing a groin injury he deserves immediate top 5 consideration. You should also take note that the new tight end Gerald Everett may stand to benefit from a diminished presence from Lockett.

Best Stack: Russell Wilson / D.K. Metcalf / Chris Carson

Chargers: The team is explosive, talented enough for consideration in any matchup. They're also a rare team that runs through its star players. Chalk is chalk for a reason.

Best Stack: Justin Herbert / Austin Ekeler (Q) / Keenan Allen

A Few to Avoid:

Titans: Other than Derrick Henry, I'm not sure who to trust to produce. Either A.J. Brown or Julio Jones could draw top coverage. There is no number two corner in the league who can stop either option. I have no doubt both guys will do well throughout the season, but I'd prefer to put them on hold for the time being.

Broncos: It's tough to avoid picking on the Giants (apologies to my editor). But Denver has a brewing QB controversy and often failed to take advantage of good matchups last year. I have faith that Bridgewater can potentially make the team better, but wait for it all to play out.
