Week 10 delivers a 11-game slate for DFS players to target. To gain leverage in GPPs, stacking is a strategy that every DFS player should use. Rostering a quarterback with one or more of his pass catchers gives lineups the upside it needs to have a chance at finishing near the top of the leaderboards. The NFL DFS advice below will evaluate how to utilize NFL DFS stacks for Week 10 DraftKings and FanDuel lineups by finding the top the stacking options from Awesemo’s Top Stacks Tool. The Top Stacks Tool will break down the stack in terms of its overall projection of being the No. 1 stack of the week, the ownership of the quarterback, if it is a value or not and the overall leverage on the rest of the field.
Top NFL DFS Stacks for Week 10 on DraftKings + FanDuel
Top Stack: Buffalo Bills
No offense is rating higher than Bills in Awesemo’s Top Stacks Tool for Week 10. Visiting the Jets, Buffalo’s implied team total is the third highest on the slate (30.3 points). Josh Allen is coming off his worst performance of the season but should bounce back in a huge way against this New York defense that has yielded the sixth highest yards per attempt (7.6). He still ranks third in DraftKings points per game this season (26.4) and before the dud against the Jaguars, Allen had thrown for at least three touchdowns and 300 yards collectively in three of his past six starts. Additionally, he has been one of the most aggressive rushing quarterbacks in the league this season, ranking third in carries (57) and rush yards at his position (319). For both DraftKings and FanDuel, Allen has the second highest ceiling on the slate this week, regardless of position, via Awesemo’s Boom Bust Tool.
As for stacking options, Stefon Diggs leads the Bills in target share (23.9%) and has run a route on 86% of Allen’s dropbacks this season. Diggs has obtained 12 targets north of 20 yards and has seen incredible usage in the red zone, with 13 targets. This ranks fourth in the NFL, and prior to last week, Diggs had caught a touchdown in back-to-back games. Slot receiver Cole Beasley is right behind Diggs in terms of target share this season (22%), thanks to some heavy usage as of late. He has seen 11 targets per game across his past three and is always a sharp target for DraftKings full PPR scoring system. Lastly, Emmanuel Sanders is a great buy-low candidate. The veteran leads the Bills in route rate (90%) and ranks third in target share (16.7%), but most importantly, is heavy utilized down field. Sanders’ aDOT is the best in the league this season (18.7) and he ranks eighth in targets greater than 20 yards (16).
After last week’s major letdown to the Jaguars, the Bills should come with lower ownership than usual, certainly making them an excellent stack for large tournaments.

Top Stack: Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Fresh off their bye and visiting the Washington Football Team, the Buccaneers only trail the Bills in Awesemo’s Top Stacks Tool. Tampa Bay’s implied team total ranks second on the slate (30.5 points) and this tilt’s total is the fourth largest (51 points). Per Awesemo’s Advanced Stats, the Buccaneers are the most pass heavy offense in the league, ranking dead last in game script adjusted rush rate. Plus, Washington has been susceptible through the air, giving up the sixth-highest yards per attempt (7.6), setting up a huge day for Tom Brady. Brady is in the midst of an outstanding season, ranking 11th in yards per attempt (7.7) and first in passing touchdowns (25), with only five picks. Brady has topped 30 DraftKings in five of nine starts this year and is averaging 26.8 DraftKings points per game when he has played behind an implied team total of 30 points or more since joining Tampa Bay.
Even after their bye week, the Buccaneers have many key injuries this week. Antonio Brown (ankle) and Rob Gronkowski (back) will both inactive. In the three games Brown has missed this season, Chris Godwin (questionable, foot) and Mike Evans have led the team in target share at 20.9% and 18%, respectively. In these tilts, Godwin racked up three red zone targets and three targets greater than 20 yards. Evans on the other hand saw six red zone targets and six targets over 20 yards. Both are great options with Brown absent, but Evans has the better upside of the two and is slightly cheaper on both DraftKings and FanDuel.
Filling in as the No.3 receiver with Brown sidelined, Tyler Johnson is a punt to consider for Bucs’ stacks. In the games Brown has missed, Johnson’s target share has been a modest 10.5%, but he has ranked third on the team in route rate (59%). Johnson caught five of his six targets last week for 65 yards, and out producing his cheap salaries shouldn’t be difficult against this Washington defense that has surrendered the sixth most yards (1,576) and touchdowns (11) to wide receivers.
Awesemo Top Stack Projection: 12.9% (second highest)
Awesemo QB Ownership: 6.2%
Value Stack: Atlanta Falcons
If looking for a cheaper stack this week, the Falcons are very appealing. They will be competing in the highest total on the slate against the Cowboys (54.5 points). Per Awesemo’s Advanced Stats, both these clubs rank inside the top 10 in game script adjusted pace. This contest is setting up to be an up-tempo shootout, and the Falcons have been relying on their pass game this season, ranking eighth-to-last in game script adjusted rush rate. Plus, the Cowboys have been vulnerable through the air, allowing the ninth highest yards per attempt (7.4). This past week, Matt Ryan had his best outing of the season, posting 31.5 DraftKings points in the upset win over the Saints. For the season, Ryan is averaging 7.2 yards per attempt and owns a 15-6 touchdown to interception ratio. He has recorded at least 22 DraftKings in five of his past seven starts, and Ryan is averaging 21.2 DraftKings points per game in totals of 50 points or more for his career.
With Calvin Ridley (personal) no longer with the Falcons, Kyle Pitts is Ryan’s top weapon. In the three games Ridley has missed this season, Pitts has led the team in target share (22.5%) and route rate (83%), including three red zone targets and three targets greater than 20 yards. Next is Russell Gage. He has run a route on 77% of Ryan’s dropbacks with Ridley out of the lineup, and finally looked healthy last week against the Saints, catching seven of his eight targets for 64 yards. Last season Gage excelled as the No. 2 option in this Falcons offense, producing 15.4 DraftKings points per game in the seven tilts Julio Jones missed. In this new role sans Ridley, Gage has much better upside than his current salaries suggest, and he is expected to see minimal ownership on both DraftKings and FanDuel, via Awesemo’s projections.
Finally, Cordarrelle Patterson needs to be considered for Falcons stacks. In addition to seeing 10.7 carries per game, the running back has garnered a 19.7% target share, while running a route on 53% of Ryan’s dropbacks when Ridley has been sidelined. In these three contests, Patterson has led Atlanta with five red zone targets and averaged 19.7 DraftKings points per game. Ryan’s best correlation on the team this season is with Patterson, and rostering the quarterback and running back together is a strategy very few should use this week.
