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.
Tyler Huntley + Mark Andrews + George Pickens
- Tyler Huntley ($5,500 DraftKings, $7,000 FanDuel)
- Mark Andrews ($6,500 DraftKings, $6,800 FanDuel)
- George Pickens ($5,000 DraftKings, $6,300 FanDuel)
Huntley started five games last season while Lamar Jackson was out and acquitted himself extremely well. He rushed for at least 40 yards in all five starts and posted a game with four total touchdowns. The reason he’s so appealing (besides his rushing upside) is his clear chemistry with Mark Andrews. In Huntley’s five starts, Andrews posted 73 yards or more in each while receiving 10 or more targets in four of the five. In two of those contests, the star tight end went 11/115/1 and 10/136/2.
It’s clear Huntley feels quite comfortable making Andrews his first read, and with the Ravens’ receiver corps so banged up, you can expect quite a hefty workload for Andrews again this week. The Steelers rank 18th in DraftKings points allowed to tight ends thus far on the year as well. Assuming Lamar sits, Huntley is way too cheap for his upside at just $5,500. Due to his rushing ability, you could absolutely run him naked, but the most optimal way to play him is with Andrews, who he’s shown a clear proclivity to throw at.
With Diontae Johnson missing practice Thursday, suddenly putting his Week 14 status in doubt, it clears the way for George Pickens to garner a larger target share in a clear plus matchup against the Ravens secondary. The Steelers have not been afraid to throw the ball when pushed, and despite the low total here, it’s possible this game provides some more fireworks than people think.
Joe Burrow + Ja’Marr Chase
- Joe Burrow ($7,000 DraftKings, $8,300 FanDuel)
- Ja’Marr Chase ($7,900 DraftKings, $8,700 FanDuel)
Chase returned last week after a four-game absence and picked up right where he left off pre-injury, catching seven of eight targets for 97 yards while playing 59-of-72 offensive snaps. Tee Higgins was a mid-week addition to the injury report with a hamstring injury, which is never a good sign. If Higgins can’t go or is limited, Chase would become an even better option against this awful Browns defense.
The last time these two teams played, the Bengals were thoroughly embarrassed on Monday Night Football in Cleveland. Joe Burrow is not going to let that happen again, you can rest assured. The Bengals have the fifth-highest implied team total on the main slate at 26 and rank third in the NFL in pass rate over expectation.
Joe Burrow has two 30+ DraftKings point games across his past three and has quietly shown a strong rushing floor of late. He’s rushed a combined 20 times over the last two weeks for 78 yards, and if that’s more of a trend than a blip, his floor/ceiling combination is approaching Josh Allen/Jalen Hurts territory.
Christian McCaffrey + Chris Godwin
- Christian McCaffrey ($8,500 DraftKings, $8,500 FanDuel)
- Chris Godwin ($6,700 DraftKings, $7,500 FanDuel)
This stack is highly likely to go overlooked this week and is one that could go for a combined 60 (or more) points if things break right. CMC played 81% of the offensive snaps last week against the Dolphins and will be needed now more than ever as a security blanket for rookie quarterback Brock Purdy. He carried the ball 17 times last week and saw an additional 10 targets. It looks like we are heading back towards Carolina CMC usage, which would make his $8,500 salary too cheap this week, even against the Bucs rush defense.
The Bucs have looked awful on offense, but Chris Godwin saw another 13 targets last week against the Saints, marking the second straight game where he’s posted 13 and the sixth time in seven games he’s gone over 10 targets. The 49ers, despite having a good defense, have been susceptible to wide receiver production, allowing the 10th most DraftKings points to the position and ninth most DraftKings points to slow receivers. I get the total is low here, but we’re talking about two explosive players at extremely low ownership who are in good spots.
