For the third straight week this NFL season Kahale Warring Jersey Mens , game stacking — playing three or more players from the same game — was an effective way to win daily fantasy tournaments.The logic is that when a matchup turns into a shootout, there’s a lot of back and forth from each team, leading to high fantasy point totals for multiple players.The New Orleans-Atlanta game did just that, finishing in a 43-37 Saints win and going well over the Vegas game total of 53 points. Matt Ryan (374 pass yards, five TDs) and rookie wide receiver Calvin Ridley (seven catches, 146 yards, Three TDs) each put up nearly 40 fantasy points, with Julio Jones being mostly held in check. Saints running back Alvin Kamara was able to exploit Atlanta’s pass defense, catching 15 balls and putting up 190 all-purpose yards. Quarterback Drew Brees joined the party with more than 400 total yards and five TDs, while Michael Thomas had 10 catches for 129 yards. In total there were more than 250 fantasy points scored in this game alone and more than $2.5 million in payouts to users who stacked this matchup on FanDuel and DraftKings.Below are a few stacks to consider for NFL Week 4:San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Chargers (Total: 47, Chargers favored by 10 1/2 points)The Chargers have a team total of more than 28 points in this home game against a 49ers team that has averaged 29 points against through three games and just lost QB Jimmy Garoppolo for the season to an ACL tear. Quarterback Philip Rivers will look to exploit the 49ers secondary, which has given up eight TDs through the air. He can be paired up with wide receiver Keenan Allen, who leads the team in both red zone targets (four) and 24.3 percent of the team’s total targets.While there is some risk that the Chargers pull ahead in this game, leaving Melvin Gordon with a bigger workload, if you are playing the passing attack you should also consider targeting 49ers players. With the 49ers expected to be trailing, look for quarterback CJ Beathard to continue to lean on tight end George Kittle Youth Kahale Warring Jersey , who is tied for fourth among all TEs with 20 targets through the first three games.Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts (Total: 47, Indianapolis favored by 1 1/2 points)The Colts return home to the fast track on the turf in Indianapolis after consecutive road games against strong defensive teams in Washington and Philadelphia. With a game total of 47 and a close spread, Las Vegas bookmakers expect this to be one of the more tightly contested games that could lead to many fantasy points from both teams. As a starting point, pair Andrew Luck with T.Y. Hilton, who has now seen at least 10 targets in three straight weeks and over his career has better averages playing with Andrew Luck. If Jack Doyle is out again, Eric Ebron would make for a strong secondary target to pair with Luck and Hilton.On the Texans side of the ball, both Will Fuller and DeAndre Hopkins are attractive targets for the game stack and together represent 59 percent of the targets this season from QB Deshaun Watson. For users who are building multiple lineups, this game makes for an excellent target with many ways you can stack. In addition to Luck (with Hilton, Ebron and Fuller or Hopkins) you can also stack Deshaun Watson with Fuller and Hopkins as well as either Ebron or Hilton.Regardless of which game you choose to stack this week, it is important to be aware of the increasing number of daily fantasy sports tournaments that are being won via stacking. HOUSTON (AP) — Houston’s impressive turnaround after a 0-3 start ended in disappointment with a loss to the Indianapolis Colts in the wild-card round.Still, the Texans remain optimistic about their future because they’re confident they’ve finally found their franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson after years of misfires at the position.“Every position is important … but you have to have a quarterback, and we have a quarterback,” coach Bill O’Brien said on Sunday. “There’s no doubt in my mind that we have the type of person and the type of quarterback that you need here to win in this league.”Watson’s play has been a revelation for a team that has started 11 different quarterbacks since 2011. The 12th overall pick in the 2017 draft started each game this season after he was limited to just seven games as a rookie after tearing a knee ligament in practice.He threw for 4,165 yards and 26 touchdowns this season to become the second player in team history and first since Matt Schaub in 2012 to throw for 4,000 yards. He added 551 yards rushing and five touchdowns to become the first player to have at least 4,000 yards passing and 25 touchdowns and 500 yards rushing and five scores in a season in NFL history.He was disappointed that he was unable to move the offense effectively on Saturday White Kahale Warring Jersey , but is looking forward to what this team can do next year and beyond.“The organization, (its) future, it’s bright,” he said. “Hopefully I’m a part of it, for sure, for a long time.”While the Texans know they’ll have Watson for the next few seasons, they have a big decision to make on the other side of the ball with defensive end Jadeveon Clowney becoming a free agent. The top overall pick in the 2014 draft shook off injuries that plagued the early part of his career to make the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons.Clowney joined J.J. Watt to form one of the league’s most fearsome pass rushing duos this season and he had nine sacks after having a career-high 9½ last season.O’Brien wouldn’t say what their plans for Clowney are, but he had plenty to say about his development as a player.“I think very highly of him,” O’Brien said. “I think he’s a disruptive player …when he feels good, health-wise, and he’s ready to rock and roll, he’s hard to handle. Him in combination with J.J. and the other guys, it’s a tough front.”If the Texans can’t or don’t want to work out a long-term deal with Clowney they could use the franchise tag to keep him in Houston for one more season. Clowney said he hasn’t thought much about free agency, but that he’d like to remain with the Texans.“We were a lot better than what we played (Saturday),” he said. “Of course I want to come back and show everybody that with this team. But that’s up to them.”Along with getting Watson back after a season-ending injury, the Texans also received a boost from the return of Watt after he’d played just eight games over the previous two seasons because of injuries.The three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year earned All-Pro honors in a season when he had 61 tackles Ibraheim Campbell Jersey White , led the AFC with 16 sacks, had 25 quarterback hits, 18 tackles for losses and forced a career-high seven fumbles, which tied for the most in the NFL. It’s his fourth season with at least 15 sacks, which ranks second in NFL history behind Hall of Famer Reggie White, who had five.“The last two years all I wanted to do was just play,” he said. “I just wanted to play and not even necessarily at the highest level. I just wanted to play. Now it’s exciting to be back where I’m playing at a very high level and I say: ‘OK I don’t want to just play. I want to be dominant and great and the best.'”Also on Sunday, receiver Demaryius Thomas spoke to reporters for the first time since a season-ending Achilles tendon injury on Dec. 23. Thomas was traded from Denver in October after Will Fuller tore a knee ligament.The four-time Pro Bowler has one year remaining on a five-year, $70 million contract signed in 2015 and it’s unclear if the Texans will want to keep him on the roster with such a high salary.“That’s a tough injury,” O’Brien said. “He knows that. He’s (over) 30 years old. That’s not easy to come back from, but he’s going to work hard. He wants to play again. He made that statement to me, and we’ll see how it goes moving forward.”The Texans are also looking ahead to this year’s draft where they’ll have three picks in the top two rounds after not having a draft pick until the third round last year because they shipped their top two picks away to get rid of Brock Osweiler and trade up to get Watson in 2017.But O’Brien said he’d need a little time before he starts thinking about the future after how his team’s season ended on Saturday.“I’m not trying to overstate this (but) I felt terrible about (Saturday) that I couldn’t get that team to play better than they did,” he said. “That’s something that will stick with me for a long time, and I’ve got to figure that out. But definitely, at some point in time pretty soon here I’ll get a second wind and get excited about helping (general manager) Brian (Gaine) (with) … the draft.”
