2020 NFL DFS Week 14 Team Stacks

on

We’re back to a normal football schedule this week, and the main slate seems to be unaffected going into the weekend. With no bye weeks and some of the league’s worst defenses in the slate, it’s like the 2020 NFL DFS Week 14 Team Stacks writes itself.

We have no shortage of big potential with five games projected total points in the 50s.

Perhaps even more important a lot of the games seem to be well balanced for the most part.

Not featured in the main slate, but Sunday Night Football features the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Buffalo Bills in what is shaping up to be an early look at a potential playoff game!

Game of The Week: Titans @ Jaguars

At this point in the season, is there anything that really needs to be said about the Titans skill position players? A.J. Brown is currently questionable but is expected to go. If He is out Corey Davis becomes an immediate must start and instant chalk.

Tannehill and Henry both have big potential, but when one does well the other’s production suffers. As evident by the offensive play calling during Baker’s beat-down, Henry can easily get scripted out of a game. I think the Titan’s shaky defense should surrender more points than most people expect, but not enough to fend off Henry.

As for the Jaguars, I’m sure most of you haven’t been paying much attention outside of Robinson. With Mike Glennon under center, the preferred target has somehow turned out to be Collin Johnson. With back to back four catch games and at only $3,600 on Draft Kings, Johnson is a high upside option with a safe floor that I’m putting in a lot of my lineups. He is a discount cornerstone piece that is easy to build around.

Laviska Shenault is currently questionable but if he does start, he is worthy of consideration. The Titans are giving up big days through the air and on the ground, both of which should benefit Shenault as he has adjusted well to the Swiss army knife role that Jags have him in.

If James Robinson is out, it is unclear who in the backfield would benefit most. Although it seems likely that it won’t be a problem as Robinson is expected to go.

Teams to Stack

Green Bay Packers @ Detroit Lions

I know they’re all both chalk and expensive, but the Packers have more potential than arguably any other team this week.

Aaron Jones against the worst rushing defense in the NFL, sign me up for that any day.

Davante Adams is as likely as he always is to get his usual absurd stats. So far this season when he has played an entire game Davante Adams has never had fewer than 9 targets. he’s never had fewer than 6 catches. And has only once been held without a TD. Don’t overthink it, start the chalk play.

If your budget can’t stretch far enough for Adams, Lazard and Tonyan are also safe bets this week. The upside is capped as Jones and Adams should be running wild, but a safe double-digit score can be expected with even more upside should they find the endzone

Tampa Bay Bucs vs. Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings as of late haven’t been the pushovers we saw at the beginning of the year. Even still the Tampa offense should be bouncing back a bit from a strong, yet inefficient outing against the Chiefs.

Because he has thrown seven INTs over his last four games, I hesitate to start Brady. But his receiver’s production hasn’t taken much of a hit for his mistakes.

Godwin, Evans, and Gronk have all been scoring consistently despite Brady’s fall from MVP grace. With an implied point total of roughly 30, there should be enough production to go around and make all three relevant. Evans has the most upside as he’s proven to be Brady’s go-to guy, but the case can be made for all three.

As for Ronald Jones, the Bucs are undefeated on the season when he scores a touchdown. They’re 2-5 when he is held out of the endzone. Bruce Arians should be feeding him the ball on Sunday to help manage the clock. Emphasis on should because let’s be honest it’s pretty unpredictable so far.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Andy Dalton revenge game has arrived, and I for one am excited. Dalton has been okay in what have proven to be tough matchups. This is going to be by far his worst defense faced and Dalton looks like a decent bargain bin play this week. The total fantasy points given up to the position is misleadingly low. Despite giving up the 12th fewest fantasy points they give up:

  • 257 passing yards per game (25th)
  • 7.2 yards per pass (26th)
  • 2.95% sack rate (31st)

The good news for Dalton is good news for his receivers. Amari Cooper has been producing steadily with Dalton under center and can be trusted in most matchups. CeeDee Lamb has been a bit irregular, however, the volume has been there. I like Lamb as a tournament play this week but don’t trust his floor enough for a head to head lineup.



Dalton Schultz has been surprisingly very consistent this entire season. He has had at least four catches in all but three games this season. His floor is pretty low but it’s among the safest at the position. For only $3,500 on DK he’s a solid option worthy of consideration.
