If you read my article from a few days ago, then you have some players that you can use to start building your pool with. This article will focus on some stacks that you can put together to really maximize your lineups with players that are in good positions to score a good amount of points, especially targeting games that have high over-unders. Stacks are a great way to differentiate your lineups from the competition, so let’s dive right into it.
Jared Goff - $6,400/Robert Woods - $6,900/Bruce Ellington - $3,500:
The Rams are favored by 10 and Detroit is ranked 30th in DVOA pass defense. Robert Woods has a great matchup against Nevin Lawson, as Woods has the advantage in speed and size. This game could be closer than some expect, as the Rams haven’t played as well on the road as they have at home, which is why I like adding Ellington to this stack. Ellington isn’t a guy that will stretch the field, but he will rack up the receptions, especially playing from behind. Since Marvin Jones has been out the last two weeks (now for the rest of the season), Ellington has been second on the team in targets.
Kirk Cousins - $5,500/Adam Thielen - $8,000/Julian Edelman - $7,100:
This stack is a bit expensive, but Cousins does help to add some savings. I expect the Patriots to win, which is why I like the Cousins and Thielen stack, as they will most likely be playing catch up. Edelman on the other side has a favorable matchup against Mackensie Alexander that he should be able to take advantage of. Both teams rank in the top seven in game pace this season, so we should see a lot of plays throughout the game. Thielen should draw Jason McCourty, who has not been stellar in coverage this season.
Cam Newton - $6,600/Curtis Samuel - $3,900/Mike Evans - $8,100:
I love playing Cam in DFS because he gives you the rushing upside that most QBs don’t provide. It just so happens that Tampa Bay is awful against both the run and the pass, as they rank in the bottom five in DVOA for both. If Devin Funchess can’t go, then I love Samuel in this spot. He’s a playmaker with great speed and would be the number two WR alongside D.J. Moore. Mike Evans is a no-brainer to add on the other side of this game. He averages 17 yards per target, and 17 percent of those targets come in the red zone.
Aaron Jones - $6,700/Green Bay Defense - $2,800:
I’m still a fan of stacking a home favorite running back with its defense, especially in a matchup as tasty as this one. The Cardinals give up 132 rushing yards and 45 receiving yards per game to opposing RBs. Since Mike McCarthy started to finally recognize Jones as the lead back in Week 10, Jones has been a top five fantasy RB, averaging 27 Draft Kings points per game. The Packers defense hasn’t been stellar, but Josh Rosen and company can make any defense look good. Arizona has turned the ball over 22 times this year, which is second worst in the league.
