2020 NFL DFS Week 10 Team Stacks

2021 NFL DFS Week 2 Team Stacks

The 2020 NFL DFS Week 10 Team Stacks feels like a microcosm of life right now.

There's little news that isn't COVID-related, as we're waiting patiently for football to kickoff on Sunday.

With the Cowboys and Jets on bye and the Patriots and Bears out of the main slate, there is once again a shortage of defenses to target this week.

But with seven different games expected to have 49+ total points, there should be no shortage of production.

Game of the Week: Buffalo Bills @ Arizona Cardinals

With an over under of 56 points, this game is expected to be the highest-scoring of the week. It's easy to understand why given the rampage these teams have been on as of late.

Kyler Murray has put together MVP-like numbers this season. Not only has he outpaced everyone else in the league, but his stats are even better than Lamar Jackson's were at this point last season.

Hopkins has been a bit hit or miss over the last four games and that should be taken into account when budgeting his high price. He is often considered a more safe bet than he really is. Christian Kirk may also be very hit or miss, but he is the hot hand and lower cost option here.

As for the backfield, I'm shying away this week. The Bills have been susceptible to the run this season, but with Kenyan Drake potentially back in the lineup, there isn't enough certainty of anybody's snap counts. There is also the undeniable fact that Kyler Murray is their best ball carrier.

As for Josh Allen, he's coming off of a career game last week. Allen's upside this week is second only to Murray's.

Stefon Diggs and John Brown continue to be a predictable and devastating 1-2 punch. Diggs is the clear top option, but Brown has great value for his potential upside.

And similar to Arizona, given the split workload and QB rushing upside, I'm avoiding the backfield for the most part. If you want to mix in a running back, Zack Moss is the player to have.

Teams to Stack

Aaron Jones against a bottom five rushing defense is an automatic lineup cornerstone. Jamaal Williams has upside as well. If the game becomes a blowout, Jones will likely see the bench late in the game.

Davante Adams so far this season in games he hasn't been hurt in, has never had fewer than ten targets. He has never had fewer than six catches. He has only once had fewer than 30 fantasy points. He's not cheap but he's worth it.

As for right now, Allen Lazard is still listed as being on IR but has been practicing since last week. Lazard had earned the WR2 role although that is now in question after MVS had a mini breakout against the 49ers. If Lazard is active I'm rolling with him as he is currently at the position minimum on Draft Kings.

For anybody who forgot, Robert Tonyan also still exists. His upside is limited when everybody else is healthy, but for $3,600, why not right?

Houston Texans @ Cleveland Browns

Deshaun Watson has been on a bit of discrete tear through the league since Bill O'Brien was fired. He has yet to dip below 24.2 fantasy points since the team picked up their first win against Jacksonville. He's also surprisingly cheap at only $6,900 on DK.

Fuller and Cooks are both equally likely to have big games. More often than not it comes down to budget, which gives Cooks the advantage. Randall Cobb is the safe 5 - 13 point option and if he gets a TD he can really pay off. At a price of $4,000, it's pretty hard to complain.

Like the backfield, the TE room is a bit too crowded for its own good. In any given week either Feels or Akins could get the majority of targets, or they could split the work evenly. It's a guessing game that doesn't often need to be played.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Miami Dolphins

Herbert has been the surprise of the season and certainly a welcome one in LA. While he may have gotten the job under strange and unfortunate circumstances, he's certainly earned it moving forward.

I often mention every player and then describe their situation even when I don't recommend playing them. All I have to say about the Chargers backfield is that it's best avoided. The bulk of the work could go to either Justin Jackson, Joshua Kelley, Troymaine Pope, or Kalen Ballage who isn't even on their team in the DK app as of writing this. Just don't do it.

In games in which Keenan Allen has both played with Hebert and stayed healthy throughout, he has never had fewer than 10 targets. I write about him what seems like every week and what seems like every week he has eight catches. His price went up over $7,000 for the first time all season, but rest assured he's still worth it.

Mike Williams has quietly been stepping it up over the past four games. Williams has had 7+ targets and 80+ yards in three of those four games. Williams also scored at least one touchdown in two of four games in that span. Given the defensive attention Allen is likely to attract, Williams could be in for a big day.

Jalen Guyton also remains one of my preferred options in the $3,000 price range. He's as likely to score 1.5 points as he is to score 15. But if you can risk the zero he's worth the chance.

As for Hunter Henry, he has been a bit of a disappointment to fantasy players as of late. I don't hate his playoff schedule for season-long formats, but for the next month or so he won't be making it into my DFS lineups.
