NFL Week 6 has finally arrived and it’s time to talk strategy. Stacking a quarterback with one of more of his pass catchers provides a solid way to add upside to a DFS lineup. With Week 6 offering a full slate of games, here are a few stacks worth considering on the DFS main slate. Let’s take a look at some top stacks from Week 6 for NFL DFS lineups on DraftKings + FanDuel.
NFL DFS Top Stacks for Week 6 on DraftKings + FanDuel
Top Stack: Green Bay
The Green Bay Packers enter Week 6 as the top projected stack in Awesemo’s Top Stack Tool. The Packers sit as 1-point favorites over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a game totaled at 55.5 points. One of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL, Aaron Rodgers continues to average 8.4 yards per attempt (fourth) while completing 70.5% of his passes. Despite ranking dead last in seconds per play, Rodgers also averages 303.5 passing yards per game.
Even more remarkable, Rodgers put up these numbers without top receiver Davante Adams for much of the season. Now slated to return, Adams offers an elite target ceiling at the wide receiver position. For those looking at cheaper Green Bay stacks, Marquez Valdes-Scantling received eight targets in Green Bay’s game before their bye. With Allen Lazard shelved, Valdes-Scantling provides cheap stacking appeal in this spot.
Awesemo Top Stack Projection: 14.4%
Awesemo QB Ownership Projection: 3.5%
Value: 9.7 (highest)
Top Stack: Atlanta
Another stack providing immense leverage, the Falcons again find themselves near the top of Awesemo’s Top Stacks Tool. The Falcons face a Vikings’ defense as 4-point underdogs in a game totaled at 54.5 points. While Atlanta has disappointed to start the year, a coaching change could provide a spark here. Either way, Matt Ryan ranks third overall in pass attempts (204), leading to immense volume for his pass catchers. On a per-game basis, Ryan averages 294.4 passing yards. With a matchup against a depleted Minnesota secondary, Atlanta stacks make sense.
Improving matters further, Atlanta removed Julio Jones from their injury report ahead of Week 6. Now playing with a healthy group of receivers, Ryan possesses stacking options at all price points. With Atlanta ranking second in plays per game and seconds per play, a double stack also warrants consideration in this spot.
Awesemo Top Stack Projection: 11.3%
Awesemo QB Ownership Projection: 5.5%
Value: 8.8 (second-highest)
Value Stack: Tennessee
After a pop-up Tuesday night tilt, the Tennessee Titans find themselves underpriced ahead of Week 6. Slated to face the Houston Texans as 3.5-point favorite, the Titans also benefit from a 53.5-point game total. While the Titans remain committed to the run, Ryan Tannehill displayed enough efficiency to warrant stacking consideration. Tannehill currently averages 7.6 yards per attempt, while completing 68.9% of his passes. However, price and ownership coalesce in this spot to make the Titans a strong price-adjusted leverage play.
Looking to Tannehill’s pass catchers, A.J. Brown’s return should provide a boost to the offense. In two games Brown recorded target totals of eight and nine. Last week in particular, Brown’s nine targets equated into a 32% target share. With Jonnu Smith also seeing 22% of the Titan’s targets this year, the Titans possess multiple stacking options for Tannehill this week. Houston has cheap, viable run backs, so this stack allows multiple studs into lineups at other positions.
Awesemo Top Stack Projection: 7.4%
Awesemo QB Ownership Projection: 8.0%
Value: 6.2 (fourth-highest)
