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.
Derrick Henry + Keenan Allen
- Derrick Henry ($8,000 DraftKings, $8,900 FanDuel)
- Keenan Allen ($6,800 DraftKings, $8,000 FanDuel)
I think everyone knows by now how bad this Chargers run defense is, but just to reiterate, they sit dead last in yards per carry allowed in the league and rank 25th in rush defense DVOA. Now they have a date with the Big Dog in a game with a pretty healthy 46.5 total.
Henry dominated the Jaguars in the first half last week but got game scripted out of the game late, as Jacksonville simply could not stop scoring. The Titans are yet again involved in a game with a three-point spread, and I would expect them to play much better in this spot against the usually underwhelming Chargers.
Henry ranks third among running backs in DraftKings points per game behind just Austin Ekeler and Josh Jacobs and should easily challenge for the 100-yard bonus and find the end zone here.
You’re going to want to run this back with a Chargers pass catcher, as the Titans are quite simply awful in the secondary. They’re down to 28th in the NFL in pass defense DVOA and rank 31st in DraftKings points allowed to opposing wideouts.
Just last week, they let Trevor Lawrence shred them for 368 yards and three touchdowns. A lot of that production went to Evan Engram, but Zay Jones did post a 8/77/1 line on 12 targets. Keenan Allen looked extremely healthy on Sunday night against the Dolphins, commanding 14 targets for the second straight week en route to his 12-catch, 92-yard performance.
There is no reason why he doesn’t see double-digit targets again this week in a dream spot. Feel free to add Justin Herbert to this stack and try to capture all the Chargers’ points through the air, but the mini with both Henry and Allen looks incredibly strong here.
Patrick Mahomes + Travis Kelce
- Patrick Mahomes ($8,100 DraftKings, $9,100 FanDuel)
- Travis Kelce ($7,800 DraftKings, $8,000 FanDuel)
Kelce has now underwhelmed three games in a row, failing to hit either the 100-yard bonus or reach the 20-DraftKings point threshold since Week 11 against the Chargers. Despite his recent dip in production, his price has remained the same, meaning the majority of people will probably not go here against a run-funnel defense.
Houston has allowed the most DraftKings points to opposing running backs on the season, and that green “32nd” on DraftKings next to both Isaiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon’s name will draw people to the Chiefs backfield, especially after the 35-burger McKinnon dropped on Denver last week.
That could be a bit misleading, as the Texans have played decent run defense of late. They shut down Jeff Wilson Jr. when he was mega chalk three weeks ago, and then they held arguably the best running back in football, Nick Chubb, to just 80 yards a week later.
The point is, while everyone ls looking to attack this Texans team on the ground, we can get max leverage by going to the Mahomes/Kelce stack. Kansas City boasts the highest implied team total on the main slate at 31.75 and just flexed their muscles on the road at Denver last week, dropping 34 points on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
KC still leads the NFL in pass rate over expectation, and there is no two-player stack in the NFL with a higher ceiling than Mahomes and Kelce.
Don’t overthink this one.
Miles Sanders + Eagles D/ST
- Miles Sanders ($6,500 DraftKings, $7,800 FanDuel)
- Eagles D/ST ($3,900 DraftKings, $4,800 FanDuel)
The Eagles have been rolling since they got embarrassed on Monday night football by the Commanders a few weeks back, rattling off four straight wins while scoring 35 or more points in each of their past three. They remain a team that wants to run the football, ranking third in the NFL in rush play rate.
The Bears rank 29th in both rush defense DVOA and DraftKings points allowed to opposing running backs. We have been trying to attack Chicago on the ground all season, and we’re not gonna stop now. Miles Sanders has now posted 140+ yard rushing performances in two of the past three weeks and has scored a combined five rushing touchdowns across his past three as well. The dual-threat abilities of Jalen Hurts make it nearly impossible to stop the Eagles’ rushing attack, and they should be able to get whatever they want again this week.
You can and should pair Sanders with the Eagles defense, as this Bears offense might be cooked. I understand Justin Fields had a bye week to get past his shoulder injury, but they are still without WR1 Darnell Mooney and project for just 19.75 points, which is the fifth-lowest implied total on the week.
This Eagles defense is ferocious and has 13 sacks across their past two games, and have held opponents to 17 points or fewer in eight of 13 weeks this season.
