2018 NFL DFS Week 15 Team Stacks


Welcome to one of those weird weeks in the NFL when we have a Thursday Night game and two Saturday Night games!

Thursday Night Football featured the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers. This game featured a 54 point o/u and the Chiefs were 3.5 point favorites at home. We all know how that ended!

On Saturday Night, we lose out on a Houston Texans Deshaun Watson / DeAndre Hopkins stack against the New York Jets. We also can not play Baker Mayfield / Nick Chubb / Jarvis Landry on the main slate. The Cleveland Browns will be in Denver playing the Broncos.

On Sunday Night Football, the Los Angeles Rams will look to rebound from a dreadful Week 14 against the Chicago Bears defense. They have an implied total of 32.5 points at home against the Philadelphia Eagles and that game has a 52 point o/u. The Rams are favored by 13, but Jared Goff / Todd Gurley / Robert Woods won’t be available when building your lineup for the main slate.

Oh, and on Monday Night Football we lose out on Drew Brees / Alvin Kamara / Michael Thomas and Cam Newton / Christian McCaffrey as the New Orleans Saints host the Carolina Panthers. This game features a 50.5 point o/u with the Saints being 6.5 point road favorites.

DFS players will be all over New England (Tom Brady / Josh Gordon / Rob Gronkowski) @ Pittsburgh (Ben Roethlisberger / Antonio Brown / JuJu Smith-Schuster). The Steelers are now 3 point home underdogs and the o/u is now up to  54. The Patriots have an implied total of 28.5 points.

2018 NFL DFS Week 15 Team Stacks

Make sure you take advantage of the DFS Projections and free lineup optimizer!

Baltimore Ravens vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Lamar Jackson
Kenneth Dixon
Ravens DST

Jackson has now started four games and the Ravens have rushed for over 900 yards in that time. Jackson has rushed for over 330 yards and two touchdowns. He has also thrown three touchdown passes. He has proven to be a very valuable way to save money at the QB position.

Dixon totaled 80 yards on nine touches last week and scored a touchdown. He is expected to see more work again this week and could supplant Gus Edwards as the Ravens feature back.

According to Football Outsiders DVOA, Tampa Bay has the 3rd worst rushing defense in the NFL this season.

The Bucs aggressive air attack has faded away and Jameis Winston is playing with much more poise these days. However, if the Ravens can control the clock and find the end zone a few times, Winston will have to air it out and we all know he is a turnover machine when under pressure. Baltimore has three sacks in each of its last three games.

The Ravens are 7 point favorites with an implied total of 26.75. This game features a 46.5 point o/u.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Oakland Raiders

Derek Carr
Jared Cook

Carr has been better than 70% passing in back-to-back games tallying 570 passing yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Bengals defense is going to do nothing to stop that.

Cook has been just about unguardable recently with 14 catches for 216 yards and a touchdown in December.

Seth Roberts is $500 cheaper than Jordy on DraftKings, but $200 more on FanDuel if you want to add in a third player to the stack.

The over/under for this one is 46 and Cincinnati is favored by 3 at home. The Raiders have an implied total of 21.5, they are for sure going over that!
