2020 NFL DFS Week 16 Team Stacks

on

It’s the final dependable week for fantasy football this season. And that means the last dependable week for the 2020 NFL DFS Week 16 Team Stacks.

With four straight days of football, we are stuck with some very undesirable matchups to pick from this week on the main slate. It seems that a lot of the better offenses are in undesirable matchups. And at the same time, the better defenses to target are facing off against bad offenses.

But at the end of the day, it’s still football. And we won’t be deterred from fantasy sports just because the good games are on Saturday.

For a more in-depth look at individual players, you can check out our website’s ranks here.

Game of the Week: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys

In what has been an impressive few weeks for the entire NFC East, it’s easy to be distracted by the emergence of Jalen Hurts. And he is no doubt a welcome sign of relief for Eagles fans and fantasy players, he hasn’t been the only good news lately.

Over the past two weeks, the Cowboys have scored 71 points due in large part to Andy Dalton’s improved play. Due also to improved defensive play against not so good/healthy teams. Either way, the offense has been chugging along nicely.

Cooper may find himself struggling once again against Darius Slay in coverage. But CeeDee Lamb and even Michael Gallup should be productive.

Dalton Schultz remains one of the more consistent, although low scoring TEs in the game. He’s a terrible tournament play, but a great head to head cornerstone.

As for the Eagles, you know the story about Hurts. He’s extremely impressive and making great decisions so far. He has genuine top QB potential in the slate.

His receivers on the other hand have been a crap-shoot so far. With a very limited span of time to consider, we don’t really know who his top target is at this point. But given his ability to extend drives and make big plays it’s worth rolling the dice with one of them if you enter a lot of lineups.

One thing we do know about this passing game is that Hurts has been pretty good for Zach Ertz so far. Despite still peppering in a few Goedert targets, Ertz seems to be slowly reclaiming his role as a viable TE option. Still sitting at $3,100 on Draft Kings, Ertz is certainly worth consideration in an extremely top-heavy player pool this week.

Teams to Stack

I have said it before (although not enough) I won’t recommend starting Trubisky. Inconsistency is still the name of the game for him. But he’s cheap, and the Jags are bad. Do with that what you will.

David Montgomery on the other hand has been exploding in the past few weeks. His effectiveness down the stretch is almost Derrick Henry-like and a welcome sight for sure. Montgomery has led the team to back-to-back wins and this week he is expected to shoulder the load again.

Allen Robinson should remain largely unchallenged by the Jags secondary and will likely be the usual WR2 we have come to expect. As I have mentioned earlier in the year, Darnell Mooney is an intriguing option as well. If Trubisky is firing on all cylinders Mooney could find himself getting a pretty significant workload.

Baltimore Ravens vs New York Giants

I know it’s chalk. But given the lack of other quality teams and matchups, it’s 100% worth playing.

Not much really needs to be said here. The Ravens have been on fire since Lamar’s “muscle cramps” against the Browns.

In the past few weeks we have seen the emergence of Dobbins as the true lead back. He has split carries with Gus Edwards, but Dobbins has gotten all of the goal line work and maintained a bit of a pass catcher role.

Marquise Brown is the top WR on the team and is a decent boom or bust type of option. He’s great for tournament lineups as a mid-tier option. Willie Snead is one of my preferred players in the $3,000 range. He is as likely to zero points as he is to get 15. But his low budget helps jam in an extra stud in a week lacking in dependable mid-tier options.

Nothing needs to be said about Andrews. It’s him, Kelce, and the rest. I’ve worked him into almost all of the lineups where I haven’t blown my budget early.
