2020 NFL DFS Week 4 Team Stacks

on

As the season marches on, we’ve got our first COVID-related interruption. While I was looking forward to stacking the Pittsburgh Steelers against a soft Tennessee Titans pass defense, we’ll have to hold off for now. For the time being every other team seems to be conducting business as usual, so we march on with the 2020 NFL DFS Week 4 Team Stacks.

As we play more games, we’ve begun getting a clearer picture of who is good at what, and how to take advantage of it. And as we’ve often seen, this week should have no shortage of shoot out matchups.

Game of The Week: LA Chargers @ Tampa Bay Bucs

Making my list once again is the Bucs offense, this time poised for an interesting matchup against the Chargers.

Chris Godwin is doubtful, and with him goes our doubts about Mike Evans’ ceiling. While it may not be smooth sailing for the Bucs against a solid defense Evans should lead the team in receiving once again.

Leonard Fournette is currently not practicing and should be monitored going into the game. Should he miss anytime Ronald Jones has immediate RB2 upside. If Fournette is healthy I’m shying away from the backfield but not quite avoiding it altogether.

Gronk earned Bruce Arians’ praise last week with a solid showing in Denver and “should continue handling a similar snap count.” My skepticism will remain strong because Arians is prone to deception, but at $3,600 on DraftKings it’s worth the risk.

The Chargers on the other hand basically have no question marks about their player’s roles. Ekeler will likely see the bulk of the backfield work. Henry will get his 7-9 targets, and Keenan Allen will get 10+ targets.

I feel it’s worth mentioning that last week Allen had 19 targets and is currently only the 12th highest priced receiver on DK.

Overall, I’m jamming guys from both teams into lineups as much as possible this week. In particular the Ronald Jones/Keenan Allen/Hunter Henry stack for a total of $15,800.

Los Angeles Rams vs New York Giants

It’s not often that I feel the need to mention a defense/special teams, but the Rams should dominate all three phases of this game and their defense could be a tournament difference-maker.

Goff has been very efficient this season and as a result, has the Rams offense firing on all cylinders. His 22.5 average points scored seems like a solid projection, with further upside depending on goal line play calling.

It now appears to be Henderson’s backfield, and while I’m sure there will be headaches in the future, I’m betting that it remains true this week. Last week Henderson averaged over five yards per carry against what is typically a very effective Bills defense. More importantly, Henderson also led the backfield in targets. While he didn’t do much with them, it still points to high upside.

Robert Woods is the preferred option at receiver because he has the added upside of goal line gadget plays. However, Kupp is usually a safe bet to lead the team in targets. Either way, it’s hard to guess wrong here.

Higbee may be the odd man out this week and have a 2-20-0 stat line. He might also catch two touchdown passes. It’s worth chasing his upside in a few lineups, but don’t depend on him too heavily.

Cleveland Browns @ Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are obviously worthy of consideration, but you don’t need me to tell you that! The same goes for the Cleveland running backs.

If Kareem Hunt’s groin injury causes him to miss time, Nick Chubb becomes a must-start.

Many people, myself included, are beginning to shy away from the Browns passing attack. And with good reason as it has become a run-first and run often team. But with lower ownership, cheaper prices and no shortage of talent, this seems like a fantastic opportunity for a Beckham/Landry breakout game.

And while I’m not pushing too hard for Baker, I do think this will be one of the best opportunities he will have all season.

Houston Texans vs Minnesota Vikings

This season has started horribly for the Texans, but they’ve faced three well rounded and elite defenses. This week against Minnesota things are looking up.

Whenever he is healthy, Will Fuller is worth consideration. He hasn’t blown us away with any huge games so far this season, but Watson should find himself with more time in the pocket and give Fuller more chances to get open.

Cooks and Cobb are both equally likely to put up solid performances but it’s doubtful all three. With similar targets shares so far, it’s likely going to come down to touchdowns to distinguish themselves from the other.

David Johnson hasn’t been given a good game script this entire season, but he still has remained effective averaging .94 points per touch. For reference that is the same per touch efficiency as Austin Ekeler, just without the volume.

I suspect that this game will remain competitive and be a much better game script for Johnson.

Miami Dolphins vs Seattle Seahawks

Nobody is saying the Dolphins will win, but Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins torched the Patriots defense last season with fewer weapons. The Seahawks sustained more injuries last week and the score should be high for both sides.

Fitzpatrick can lead this offense into some very high scoring despite being completely unpredictable week to week. But if this week is the week than having a few Dolphins in your lineup could set you apart in a tournament.



Parker remains the receiver to play, but Williams has big game potential. And while Gesicki may be TD dependent, there is a high ceiling as he’s gotten anywhere from 3-11 targets per game so far this season.
