For the third straight week this NFL season http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/trevon-wesco-jersey , game stacking — playing three or more players from the same game — was an effective way to win daily fantasy tournaments.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 Alexander Mattison Jersey , 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, 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 http://www.minnesotavikingsteamonline.com/dru-samia-jersey , 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. KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Arrowhead Stadium was already emptying by the time Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers jogged to the locker room, triumphantly waving his hand as a satisfying cascade of boos washed over him.He had finally beaten the Kansas City Chiefs.It sounded perfect.Article continues below ...Rivers led Los Angeles on a feverish fourth-quarter comeback Thursday night, capped by a debatable pass-interference call, a tense video review of the last touchdown and the gutsy decision to try a 2-point conversion. And for the first time in years against Kansas City Daniel Jones Jersey , everything turned out perfectly for Rivers and the Chargers in a 29-28 victory that clinched their playoff spot.“This was big. Here or at home, whatever,” Rivers said, “we needed to beat these guys.”The Chargers (11-3) trailed 28-14 when Justin Jackson’s touchdown run with 3:49 to go gave them a chance. They quickly got the ball back from Patrick Mahomes and the NFL’s highest-scoring offense, and Rivers led a tense final drive that included a fourth-down dart to Travis Benjamin to keep it alive.That crucial penalty on Kendall Fuller in the back of the end zone gave the Chargers the ball at the 1, and Rivers found Mike Williams along the sideline on the next play. And when his TD catch with 4 seconds left was confirmed, coach Anthony Lynn sent his offense back onto the field.Williams hauled in the conversion to end five years’ worth of frustration.“We didn’t come here to tie. We came here to win. So to me it was a no-brainer,” said Lynn, whose team became the first since Minnesota in Week 15 of the 2002 season to win with a 2-point conversion in the final 10 seconds of regulation.The comeback allowed Los Angeles to forge a first-place tie in the AFC West, though the Chiefs (11-3) hold the tiebreaker with a better division record. More satisfying was the simple fact that Rivers and the Chargers had finally snapped their nine-game losing streak against Kansas City.They hadn’t beaten the Chiefs since 2013 Quincy Williams II Jersey , the last year they made the playoffs.“Oh, it’s satisfying,” Benjamin said. “We talked about it. We knew it had been a couple years and we wanted to go into this game and change that and we did.”Rivers threw for 313 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions, and Williams had seven catches for 76 yards and two scores while adding another on the ground. Jackson ran for 58 yards and a touchdown in place of the injured Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.Mahomes was held to just 243 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas City, and his inability to pick up a first down in the closing minutes proved costly. The Chiefs forced the Chargers to burn two timeouts on their last drive, but Mahomes was sacked by Isaac Rochell and Kansas City had to punt.The Chiefs never got the ball back on offense.“They found a way to win and we didn’t,” Mahomes said. “You have to find a way in this league.”Hyped by the return of star safety Eric Berry, it looked for a while as if the Chiefs would simply resume their vexation of Rivers at Arrowhead. Steven Nelson leaped to snag a jump ball for a pick on the second play of the game, and Rivers tossed another just before halftime.Mahomes and Co. took advantage of their early momentum.Kansas City breezed downfield after Nelson’s interception, and the young MVP candidate threw a dart to Demarcus Robinson — while in the grasp of Chargers safety Adrian Phillips — for a 7-0 lead.Then after a punt Ryquell Armstead Jersey , Darrel Williams took a screen pass for his first career touchdown.The Chargers finally reached the end zone in the second quarter, when Mike Williams caught a short TD pass. But it came moments after wide receiver Keenan Allen hurt his hip while trying to make a leaping grab in the corner of the end zone — he briefly returned before sitting out the rest of the game.Mike Williams continued to pick up the slack the rest of the game.After the Chiefs pushed their lead to 21-7 on Damien Williams‘ touchdown run, the Chargers’ big, rangy wide receiver answered with a 19-yard end-around for a score. And when then Chiefs went on another methodical scoring drive to take a 28-14 lead with just over 8 minutes left in the game, Mike Williams helped to lead the Chargers to an answering touchdown to stay in the game.He made two more big catches in the final seconds to put them over the top.“Everybody needed to come together and make plays,” Mike Williams said, “and that’s what we did.TONY G’S AWARDThe Chiefs added TE Tony Gonzalez to their Hall of Fame at halftime. The six-time All-Pro played his first 12 seasons with the Chiefs before finishing his career in Atlanta. His name was unveiled next to that of WR Carlos Carson on the ring of honor inside Arrowhead Stadium.INACTIVE STARSGordon (knee) tried to warmup before telling Lynn he couldn’t play, joining Ekeler (concussion) on their inactive list. The Chiefs were missing RB Spencer Ware (hamstring) and WR Sammy Watkins (foot).INJURIESChargers: Allen received treatment on the sideline after nearly making his spectacular TD catch, and he returned briefly before slowly walking off. He left for the locker room and did not return.UP NEXTChargers: Return home for a prime-time game against the Ravens on Dec. 22.Chiefs: Visit the Seahawks for another prime-time game Dec. 23.
