Welcome to Team Rise or Fall’s Week 8 NFL GPP top stacks for DraftKings and FanDuel. If you are new to this terminology, I highly recommend you go back through Team Rise or Fall’s YouTube tutorial: How to Build Winning NFL DFS Lineups for DraftKings and FanDuel.

This week, the stacks are going to be broken down a little different than in weeks past. I would previously list stacks by team, but this week we are going to looks at three-player stacks by value, three-player game stack by projection, and four-player game stack by rating. Let’s get into it!
In the Team Rise of Fall Top Stacks tool, my San Francisco 49ers present the best value three-player stack. The tool has identified Jimmy Garoppolo, Kendrick Bourne, and George Kittle as the players we want to stack.
The Rise or Fall NFL Study Hub shows us Garoppolo faces a Seattle defense that gives up the second-most fantasy points to the quarterback position. The 49ers are going to be without wideout Deebo Samuel which should increase touches for both George Kittle and Kendrick Bourne. Kittle already has a target share of 30.08%, but it is Bourne and his 10.53% target share that should also see an increase.
As I reference back to our Top Stacks tool, this top projected three-player game stack honor goes to Russell Wilson, Tyler Lockett, and George Kittle.
Wilson (or any mobile quarterback for that matter) has been the kryptonite of the 49ers defense. Wilson has averaged 28.8 DK points over the last four weeks and I expect his hot streak to continue against the banged-up 49ers defense.
Tyler Lockett balled out on Sunday night putting up video game like stats – 15 catches, 200 yards, and 3 touchdowns. Lockett is averaging nearly 10 targets over the last four weeks, data I’m pulling from the NFL Study Hub!
Our Top Stacks tool likes a Green Bay stack with a Minnesota run back: Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Justin Jefferson. That game has an implied total of 54.5 points, which is one of the highest on the slate.
Aaron Rodgers is the second-highest-rated quarterback in the NFL Study Hub. He’s thrown for multiple touchdowns in all but one game this season. Davante Adams is back looking healthy after the monster game he had last Sunday against the Texans. Marquez Valdes-Scantling is responsible for 17.35% of the Packers target share over the last four weeks, and at his price tag, it shouldn’t be hard for him to hit value.
We are running the Packers stack back with rookie wideout Justin Jefferson who has made the most of his opportunities. The Vikings are coming off a bye week but, before that, Jefferson erupted for a three-touchdown game. If defenses continue to focus on Adam Thielen, Jefferson will continue to have those one-on-one opportunities. Jefferson has been averaging 7 targets a game over the last four weeks, making up 22.34% of the team’s market share of targets.
