Week 14 is here, and that means just a few more weeks left of fantasy goodness. In my last article, I targeted certain players to target in your lineups (and also to avoid). Here, I’ll continue to offer my recommendations on stacks that will help to give you an advantage over the rest of the field. In this article, I’m going to target players that have higher implied totals so that you can maximize the scoring potential from each stack. Also, these are stacks that I would recommend for my Houston Preeminence Draft Kings Contest. Here we go!
Aaron Rodgers - $6,000/Davante Adams - $8,400: I would normally want to add the opposing WR to this stack, in this case, it would be Julio Jones, but Jones isn’t 100 percent right now, and I don’t want to blow most of my salary on three players. So, for now, we’re going to stick with the most popular DFS stack in the QB/WR1 stack. The Packers are 4-1-1 at home, and Rodgers is averaging 20 fantasy points per game at Lambeau. Adams, averaging 23 fantasy points per game himself, has a positive matchup against the Falcons’ Robert Alford.
Philip Rivers - $6,500/Keenan Allen - $7,400: The Chargers have an implied today of 31 this week, so expect the points to be coming early and often. Over the last three weeks, Rivers has been the seventh best fantasy QB, and Allen has been the number one fantasy WR. The one concern is that this game could be decided by halftime, as the Chargers are a 14 point favorite at home, but I think that’ what makes this for a sneaky good stack.
Deshaun Watson - $5,900/DeAndre Hopkins - $7,800/T.Y. Hilton - $6,300: This is a matchup I love for the Texans. The Colts’ pass defense is ranked 21st in DVOA, which means nothing but good things for Watson and company. Hopkins scored 33 fantasy points the last time these teams faced off in Week 4. On the other side of the ball, you have the “Texans Killer” in T.Y. Hilton. In six road games against the Texans, Hilton is sporting a line of 32/734/6. He’s dealing with a shoulder injury, but as long as he plays, he is a worthy start. If he can’t go, look to swap Hilton for Eric Ebron. He is top five in receptions and targets for TEs, first in TDs, and second in red zone targets.
