Daily Fantasy Football Week 13 NFL DFS Stacks and Picks on DraftKings and FanDuel

This piece will identify some of my favorite NFL DFS stacks of the weekend. Be sure to use our Stacking tool within our Player Models to find the highest projected stacks, the stacks that figure to be chalky, and more. Our Correlation Dashboard is also an excellent resource for finding hidden edges in stacking positions and games.

You can also plug these stacks into our Lineup Builder to hand-build the rest of it, or you can optimize it with our projections. And if you like to create multiple lineups, our Lineup Optimizer allows you to effortlessly create up to 150 lineups.

The Lineup Optimizer has endless customization opportunities.

Josh Jacobs + Davante Adams 

  • Josh Jacobs ($7,900 DraftKings, $9,500 FanDuel)
  • Davante Adams ($8,700 DraftKings, $8,600 FanDuel)

Yes, I realize this is extremely point chase-y, after Jacobs turned his 39 (!) touches into a whopping 303 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. However, have you seen this Chargers run defense? They’re allowing an NFL-worst 5.6 yards per carry and rank 30th in rush defense DVOA. They just let James Conner, who can barely walk at this point, run for 120 yards on 25 carries last week. The Raiders are a two-man show right now with Jacobs and Davante Adams with both Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller in IR.

Dating back to Week 4, if you’ve played two lineups per week and rostered either Jacobs or Adams on each of them, you’ve started your teams with DraftKings point totals of:

37.5, 33.3, 39.5, 39.6, 30.6, 36.1, and 51.3 (FIFTY-ONE) in seven of eight weeks.

If you blindly have played the two of them together in each of these games, you’ve started your roster with DraftKings point totals of:

60, 63.7, 57, 51.3, 53.2, 58.1, 65.7 in seven of eight weeks.

The only week where this combination did not combine for 50 in this stretch was when Davante Adams was battling an illness Week 8 at New Orleans.

If you took their combined totals in each of those non-New Orleans game weeks and divided it by their combined salaries, you’d be looking at expected point paces of:

225.5, 221.8, 187.5 166.6, 163, 179.3, 201.5

This means if you’ve simply rostered Jacobs and Adams together every single week since Week 4, you would be putting your roster on a 180 (179.3 technically) point pace or higher in FIVE of the seven, with the other two being 163 or higher. I don’t need to stress to you how hard this is to do.

This week, the Chargers-Raiders game boasts the third-highest total on the main slate at 50.5. If this game shoots out, I think you can take a wild guess on where the production is going for Las Vegas. DraftKings has finally caught up to this a bit, as the two-man combination of Adams and Jacobs costs a combined $16.6K, which is the highest of the season.

It still does not change the fact that the upside here is absolutely through the roof based on the way these guys are being used right now, or that even if the two fail to 4x their salary, they’re likely not putting up a score that would kill your rosters.

At the very minimum, you need to be playing one of the two in GPPs, and obviously, I tried to lay out why simply running them both together makes a ton of sense.

Trevor Lawrence + Christian Kirk + Amon-Ra St. Brown  

  • Trevor Lawrence ($5,900 DraftKings, $7,500 FanDuel)
  • Christian Kirk ($6,300 DraftKings, $7,500 FanDuel)
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown ($7,100 DraftKings, $8,000 FanDuel)

Lawrence finally showed he has a ceiling last week against the Ravens, where he put up a season-high 28.94 DraftKings points thanks to an impressive fourth-quarter comeback. He threw for 321 yards and three touchdowns in the game, which were both season highs as well. Now he gets arguably the worst defense in the NFL at the Coors Field of DFS in a game that features the second-highest total on the main slate at 51.

Many will flock back to Zay Jones at $4,900, who had the game of his life last week, catching 11 balls for 145 yards en route to 30.5 DK points. The clear move in GPPs is to fade Jones and go back to the WR1 in Jacksonville, Christian Kirk.

Despite not blowing up last week, Kirk still saw nine targets, which marks the fourth time in the past five games he’s eclipsed that number. Prior to last week, Kirk had posted back-to-back games with 20+ DK points, and I expect him to get back on track this week to a team that ranks 31st in yards per pass attempt allowed and dead last in fantasy points allowed to slot receivers.

The obvious (and chalky) way to run this back is with the Sun God himself, Amon-Ra St. Brown, who’s coming off one of his best games of the season on Thanksgiving. He torched the Bills defense for 9/132/1 and went over 30 DraftKings points for the second time this year. The Lions have a 26-point implied team total in what’s going to be arguably the best game environment on the slate, and ARSB is still underpriced for his role.

Nick Chubb + Nico Collins

  • Nick Chubb ($8,000 DraftKings, $9,600 FanDuel)
  • Nico Collins ($4,200 DraftKings, $5,800 FanDuel)

Another week where we can attack this sieve Houston rush defense. On the season, the Texans have allowed the most rush attempts, rushing yards, and rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs and rank 31st in rush defense DVOA. The Browns are seven-point favorites in a game that actually features a pretty high total for a game involving the Texans at 46.5. Very quietly, Chubb went over 100 yards again last week, marking the sixth time he’s done so in 11 games.

My initial lean was to write up the Browns defense at $3,900, which I still like, but I decided to run it back with Nico Collins instead. This Houston offense is largely bereft of talent, but Collins has hit double-digit DraftKings points in four of his past six games, and the Browns sit 27th in pass defense DVOA and 29th in yards per pass attempt allowed.

Kyle Allen taking over for Davis Mills has to be considered an upgrade, and for just $4,200, Collins could find himself on a tourney-winning roster if things break right in a game with a pretty healthy total.
