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 Allen + Gabriel Davis + Isaiah McKenzie
- Josh Allen ($8,400 DraftKings, $8,900 FanDuel)
- Gabriel Davis ($6,600 DraftKings, $6,500 FanDuel)
- Isaiah McKenzie ($5,100 DraftKings, $5,900 FanDuel)
If you thought this was going to be the week we get away from Josh Allen and Co., guess again, my friends. The matchup literally could not be better, as the Ravens through three weeks have allowed the most receptions, receiving yards, and fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. They’ve also allowed the fourth most yards per reception and second most receiving touchdowns to the position, so not only are they getting beat, but they are getting beat deep.
Last week the Bills only scored 21 points, yet Josh Allen still finished with 30.7 DK points, imagine what he’s going to do this week against the worst pass defense in the NFL? Buffalo yet again has the highest implied team total on the Week 4 main slate, sitting at a very healthy 27 points, even on the road. I am sure you noticed Stefon Diggs was left off this stack, that’s because it is simply too hard to jam him and Allen together if you plan on playing the other good plays on the slate this week. DraftKings still made it easy for us to run out Bills stacks this week because Gabriel Davis is just $6,600 this week, while Isaiah McKenzie sits at just $5,100.
The $1,800 and $3,300 discounts you get from Diggs to Buffalo’s other two pass catchers will matter quite a bit this week, and with Baltimore’s pass defense being so bad, the production could easily flow through these two. Don’t get me wrong, Diggs is a phenomenal play this week and will be very popular, but he is $8,400.
Last week was Davis’ first game back after missing Week 2 with an ankle injury, and he still played 96% of Buffalo’s offensive snaps. With another week to rest up, he should be much good to go this week and projects as one of the best plays on the board in what’s almost assuredly going to be a shootout against Lamar Jackson.
McKenzie saw nine targets last week, which he turned into seven catches for 76 yards and a touchdown. Jake Kumerow also suffered a high ankle sprain in the game, and if he misses this week, McKenzie will be on the field more. This stack is a nice way to gain leverage on the straight Allen + Diggs skinnies while losing zero EV in the process.
What you’re saying here is that Diggs can still have a nice game while not doing enough to pay off his $8,400 tag, which is because production is flowing through both Davis and McKenzie.
I like this for both cash games and tournaments alike, as its floor is simply too high in this projected game environment.
CeeDee Lamb + J.D. McKissic
- CeeDee Lamb ($6,700 DraftKings, $6,800 FanDuel)
- J.D McKissic ($5,100 DraftKings, $5,300 FanDuel)
Cooper Rush has now started two games since Dak Prescott went down in Week 1, and in those games, CeeDee Lamb saw 11 and 12 targets respectively. Rush has looked more than capable in Prescott’s stead, and now a juicy matchup with the lowly Commanders awaits. Washington has allowed both the third most fantasy points and receiving yards to opposing wideouts through three weeks.
Lamb and the Cowboys played on Monday night football, which is why his price does not match up with his recent production. He posted eight catches for 87 yards and a touchdown against the Giants while also leaving a ton of meat on the bone after dropping a wide-open 40-yard pass which likely would have resulted in a touchdown. His usage has been great nonetheless and will be one of the more popular receiver plays on the slate this week.
A creative way to run this back is to fade the Washington receivers and simply play J.D. McKissic, who is an appropriately priced $5,100 on DraftKings. The Cowboys are three-point home favorites against the always unimposing Carson Wentz.
Each of the past two weeks when Washington went down early, McKissic saw seven and nine targets, in addition to his three rushing attempts. He caught 13 of those 16 combined targets for 86 yards. If he does that again this week, he’s simply a touchdown away from paying off huge.
This is also a way to not have to guess which Commanders receiver the production flows through.
Rashaad Penny + Seattle D/ST
- Rashaad Penny ($4,900 DraftKings, $6,700 FanDuel)
- Seattle D/ST ($2,400 DraftKings, $3,300 FanDuel)
It is no secret by now that the Lions defense is a complete sieve. Through three weeks, they have allowed the eighth most fantasy points to opposing wideouts while allowing the most fantasy points to opposing running backs. Enter Rashaad Penny, who’s coming off his largest workload of the season last week against the Falcons after getting 15 opportunities.
Rookie Kenneth Walker played just nine snaps last week, and now third down back Travis Homer was placed on injured reserve with a rib injury. The stage is set for Penny to absolutely torch this Lions rush defense.
The Seattle defense has quietly posted seven, seven, and nine DraftKings points through three weeks while racking up a combined six sacks, three fumble recoveries, and an interception. The Lions are very banged up on offense right now. Running back D’Andre Swift battling both shoulder and ankle injuries and head coach Dan Campbell has already said he’s not optimistic Swift suits up this week.
Star wideout Amon-St. Brown has a sprained ankle and did not practice Wednesday, making it quite possible he also sits out this week. Finally, tight end T.J. Hockenson did not practice Wednesday due to a foot injury of his own, just one week after dealing with a hip injury against the Vikings.
Any way you slice it, the Lions are hurting right now, and I like the Seahawks’ chances of winning this game.
Penny should yet again see a big workload, and that correlates quite well with the Seattle D/ST playing well here. This stack costs a combined $7,300 on DraftKings and essentially lets you build any team you want.
