2020 NFL DFS Week 2 Team Stacks


NFL Week 1 has come and gone and for the most part, cleared things up for the 2020 NFL DFS Week 2 Team Stacks.

While there are a few exceptions, we now have a better expectation of how players will be used going forward.

But at this point, the most important thing to remember is not to overreact to touchdowns. Targets and touches are far more important to consider than actual touchdown production.

Game Stack Of The Week: Carolina @ Tampa Bay

I was tempted to put the Texans/Ravens game in this spot but it feels a bit too chalky. Besides, how many games can we really say 13 players have reasonable expectations of fantasy relevance?

In what is shaping up to be a potential shootout this matchup has a combination of high ceilings and low budget options.

Lavonte David and the Bucs defense have been crushing running backs, so the price tag for McCaffrey is certainly excessive. But outside of CMC, everybody else seems to be fairly valued.

Sure both teams had a few unpleasant surprises in Week 1, but we can’t count any of their players out just yet.

While there are certainly a whole lot of question marks surrounding these teams and their offensive pecking orders, anybody on this list can be a difference-maker.

Currently, Chris Godwin is in concussion protocol. He seems to be displaying no symptoms and the team is describing the move as “very very cautious.” It is a situation that demands attention moving forward, because if Godwin misses any time Evans, Miller, and your preferred option at TE would instantly become better options.

Stacks to Play

Indianapolis Colts vs. Minnesota Vikings

Keeping in Mind that touchdowns are somewhat unpredictable week to week, I’m not opposed to starting both of these running backs.

While the Colts don’t quite measure up to the Green Bay offense, they still have some serious potential this week. And while Hines got the TDs, Taylor flashed huge upside. He led all rookies in receiving yards and had two of the top ten fastest speeds recorded in Week 1.

Rivers, while not without his flaws, certainly can elevate his pass catchers. Particularly those with the ability to make plays after the catch. In what should shape up to be a game with less than stellar defensive expectations, this could be the last time some of these players are available for this cheap.

*Editors Note: Doyle has been ruled out for Week 2

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos

In what was a truly dominant defensive display, the Steelers threw their hat in the ring for playoff consideration. However, James Conner got hurt almost instantly and now Benny Snell seems to have control over the backfield. Conner even somewhat admitted he probably won’t be the lead back if he plays this week.

Despite the red zone looks going Juju’s way, Diontae Johnson had a team-leading 10 targets. With the duo of A.J. Bouye and Justin Simmons lurking in the secondary, JuJu and the tight ends might find themselves covered up more often than not.

So while Denver is no easy matchup, I’d play the QB/RB/WR stack at least once. And don’t shy away from throwing Johnson in your lineup to stretch the budget.

Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

I know you don’t need me to tell you to start Henry, even in a PPR format he’s still a top 5 option. But I feel obligated to point out that Corey Davis is available on Draft Kings for just $4,000 salary with A.J. Brown out this week vs the Jaguars.

I put Humphries on the list because he had 7 targets in Week 1.

While touchdowns are generally a fluke, look for Jonnu to keep being a favorite red zone target for Tannehill – even more so with A.J. Brown out.

All in all the Tannehill/Davis/Smith stack runs up a $14,100 tab on Draft Kings and has potentially big payouts.

Highest Projected Scoring Games

  • Baltimore vs. Houston (over/under 52)- As I said earlier, this one is a chalk matchup that I believe could be an offensive disappointment. Houston should struggle against this defense and I’m fading their players. The timeless stack of Lamar Jackson/Mark Andrews is as good as always. But with a crowded backfield, there is no real predictability outside of those two.
  • Atlanta vs. Dallas (over/under 50)- Similar to the Packers, it’s hard to pick wrong with the Falcons receivers. If Matt Ryan is going to have to keep throwing for 400+ yards every week than Falcons should keep finding their way into your lineups. Dallas with a projected 27.5 points should also be marching up and down the field as well. All six of the fantasy-relevant receivers are solid plays this week.
  • Green Bay vs. Detroit (over/under 49.5)- Does anybody really need to convince you to start some Packers this week? Look for Rogers to keep dishing out some beat downs. And until one separates from the other or the passing volume declines, Allen Lazard and Marquez Valdez-Scantling both make solid low cost plays.
