2020 NFL DFS Week 15 Team Stacks

on

A lot of fantasy-friendly teams are out of the main slate this week. It certainly makes the 2020 NFL DFS Week 15 Team Stacks a bit more difficult, but far from impossible.

The game of the week this week is no doubt the New Orleans Saints vs the Kansas City Chiefs. Drew Brees returns for the Saints, who will be without Michael Thomas. Alvin Kamara is likely to dominate once again.

Outside of that game, the remaining matchups seem to be mismatches that could disappoint for fantasy purposes.

Never the less, we march forward with only two weeks of NFL regular season football left.

Game of the Week: Kansas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints

In addition to being one of only two games in the main slate, this game seems the easiest to predict the roles players will have. And despite both defenses being dominant all season there should be no shortage of offensive to be had.

As far as running backs go, I can’t think of anybody better than Alvin Kamara with Mike Thomas out of the lineup. CEH has been effective when given the ball but is held back by the presence of Leveon Bell.

Tyreek Hill is one of the best receivers in the league and it’s hard to believe that Marshon Lattimore can really do anything to slow him down. Emmanuel Sanders represents the opposite approach. He is likely to be less owned, and despite the Chiefs tough defense, with Drew Brees healthy Sanders has been quite consistent. Before he and Brees were both injured Sanders only dropped into single-digit points one time.

What can possibly be said about these TEs that hasn’t already been said? Travis Kelce has been one of the most effective pass-catchers in the NFL this year. And while Jared Cook may not be breaking records, he has been pretty consistent so far this season. In games with Drew Brees, Cook has been held under nine points only twice this season.

Teams to Stack

San Francisco 49ers Vs. Dallas Cowboys

Despite the devastating rash of injuries this team has suffered, they seem to be getting healthy now. Nick Mullens is still taking the reigns of this offense. And despite his struggles, he seems poised for a breakout this week. Mullens has two games over 20 points this season, so he certainly has the potential. And Nothing screams potential breakout like playing the Cowboys.

Aiyuk has proven to be every bit as effective as Deebo Samuel. Maybe even a bit more effective. So far this season he has had no problem returning value to DFS players. Of his last five games played, he has scored over 19 points in every contest.

The backfield is as tricky to figure out as any. Is it a Wilson or Mostert week? Will one of them even earn the snaps to become relevant or will they split a small workload? I’m hesitant to put them in too many lineups but both players could be worth jamming into a few lineups this week if the budget works.

Jordan Reed in any given week can dominate a game. He also has strong goose egg potential. With injuries everywhere and defensive attention focused on Aiyuk, Reed could find himself running wild on Sunday. And at only $3,200 he’s worth taking a chance on.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans

  • Phillip Rivers / T.Y.Hilton / Jonathon Taylor

The key for Rivers to keep playing like he did twelve children ago, seems to be playing the Texans. Houston has done almost nothing to stop opposing offenses in any capacity. But it has been especially true through the air.

Speaking of passing attacks, if T.Y. Hilton played the Texans every single week he would be mentioned in the same breathe as Jerry Rice. For whatever reason (probably the consistently bad defense) Hilton continually puts up big points against Houston. This week should be no different.

Over the past few weeks, Taylor seems to have cemented his role as the top option in this backfield. There was certainly a bit of doubt as it appeared briefly that his touches were in jeopardy. But given his completely dominant performance last week, it’s safe to say those worries are outdated.

Los Angeles Rams vs. New York Jets

This part of the article writes itself. You don’t need football nerds like me to tell you to start guys against the Jets.

I’m personally partial to Woods over Kupp more often than not. Kupp is more used as a safety blanket and tends to do well against better defenses. Woods seems to mop up the fantasy points against defenses with worse coverage skills or pass rushing. Or in this case, both.

Akers is proving to be quite an effective player. Just in time for us to need him most, Akers has stepped up and seemingly won the starter job. I want to stress the term seemingly because Sean McVay is known for splitting the workload. Either way, Akers should be very productive if given the opportunity.
