Marcus Mariota is only $7,500 on FanDuel today. That makes him the 17th most expensive quarterback on the site. The Titans are going to need to score a lot of points to win today. That means more passing attempts than normal. It also means more potential for a play to break down and Mariota to take off and get a big gain with his legs.

You can stack him with Delanie Walker to get double points on all of the touchdowns that Mariota and Delanie hook up on. Mike Mularkey said they need to get Delanie more involved in the offense today. Walker is the 4th most expensive tight end at $6,600.

That is a relatively cheap stack and will allow you to get some of the high prices guys in your lineup that you will need to round out a winner. The chalk plays will come from the Saints vs. Giants game. You need to get Odell Beckham Jr. in as many lineups as you can. He will have a huge day, but will cost you $9,400- the most expensive player on the slate.

So stack Mariota and Delanie. It will pay off big, and it is really fun to have those guys in fantasy because it makes all of the touchdowns that much more fun!
