NFL DFS Top Stacks for Draftkings and Fanduel Week 6
In the realm of NFL DFS, Week 6 presents us with a myriad of opportunities to strike gold. One of the most potent strategies in our playbook is stacking – a way to amplify our chances of success. Stacking is like assembling a dream team within your fantasy roster. It involves pairing players who can potentially deliver a collective powerhouse performance. In this article, we’ll dissect some of the top stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel that you should consider in Week 6.
NFL DFS Stacking Basics
The Classic QB-WR Stack
The most traditional and widely used stack in NFL DFS is the quarterback-wide receiver duo. It’s simple, yet effective. By pairing your QB with one of his top pass-catchers, you create a synergy that can lead to a barrage of fantasy points. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even stack two pass-catchers with their signal-caller, especially when the targets are concentrated around these dynamic players.
The RB-Defense Combo
Another intriguing stacking strategy involves combining a running back and the defense of the same team. This approach is particularly useful when a team is heavily favored, poised for dominance. It can result in rushing yards for the back and opportunities for sacks and turnovers for the defense. It’s a high-risk, high-reward strategy that can pay off handsomely.
The Game Stack
Fortune favors the bold and the full game stack is an enticing option for those who can stomach it. This involves rostering not just your QB and one of his pass-catchers but also including a pass-catcher from the opposing team. Game stacks are most effective in matchups with high total points expected and close spreads. It’s a strategy that can lead to fireworks on your fantasy scoreboard.
The Miami Dolphins have been setting the NFL ablaze with their offensive prowess in the early part of the season. They’ve shattered records for yards gained in the first five games, amassing a staggering 2,568 yards. Scoring an average of 36.2 points per game, they are an offensive juggernaut.
While the injury to De’Von Achane was unfortunate, it provides clarity on how to approach this potent offense. Tua Tagovailoa ranks as the QB5 in fantasy, showcasing his fantasy potential. Tyreek Hill is the undisputed WR1 this season, while Jaylen Waddle is poised for a breakout. The Dolphins face the Carolina Panthers, a defense ranked 28th in schedule-adjusted metrics, without both starting safeties. This stack has the potential to explode in Week 6.
Trevor Lawrence, while somewhat underwhelming in fantasy, has an opportunity to shine against the Indianapolis Colts. He had his best fantasy performance of the season against the Colts, and Calvin Ridley is regaining his form. Christian Kirk has emerged as the Jaguars’ primary receiver. With Zay Jones out, Kirk’s role solidifies, and the Colts’ defense, ranked 26th in adjusted fantasy points per target to receivers, presents a favorable matchup. The Jaguars’ implied team total is 24.5 points, making this stack a compelling choice.
Los Angeles Rams
The return of Cooper Kupp has revitalized the Los Angeles Rams’ offense. Kupp seamlessly integrated back into the lineup, garnering 13 targets and turning them into 8 catches for 118 yards. Puka Nacua maintained his role, seeing 31% of the targets in Week 5, even with Kupp’s return. Facing the Arizona Cardinals, whose pass defense ranks 30th in key metrics, the Rams’ offense is primed for success. With a high team total, this stack could be a game-changer for your DFS lineup.
Chicago Bears-Minnesota Vikings
Justin Fields has been on fire in recent weeks, with eight touchdowns in two games. D.J. Moore has been his primary target, garnering 32% of the targets. With the injury to Justin Jefferson, the Vikings are vulnerable. Tight end T.J. Hockenson is already a potent fantasy asset, and he faces a Bears’ defense ranked 31st in several categories. Stacking players from both sides of the game in this matchup is a savvy move, and Fields, Moore, and Hockenson are well-positioned to shine.
In Week 6 of NFL DFS, these stacks offer a tantalizing blend of potential and opportunity. Choose wisely and assemble your fantasy dream team, and may your lineup reign supreme!
