2022 Week 12 DraftKings Stacks

Ahead of our slate breakers article, I thought I’d write up some of my favorite DraftKings stacks for Week 11 of the 2022 season. There are a few articles you can find on why stacking is effective for DFS, so we won’t recap that here.

Instead, I’ll outline the criteria for being included:

  • Main slate only
  • Stack will include QB & 2 other players (optional bring back noted)

Stack 1 - Washington Commanders (v ATL)

O/U 41

Spread WAS -5 (WAS implied 23 Pts)

QB Taylor Heinicke ($5,300)
WR Terry McLaurin ($5,800)
WR Curtis Samuel ($5,000)

Total $16,100

Optional bring-back Cordarrelle Patterson (ATL) +$6,000

The Commanders offense named Heinicke as the starting QB, which is great for fantasy. He is of that old Philip Rivers style- happy to air it downfield in the belief his receivers can make a play on the ball. Against this poor Falcons secondary, the Commanders should be able to feast through the air. McLaurin is getting plenty of targets in the offense, and Samuel has the ability to convert with what little opportunity he is given. If you want more of a floor option, Logan Thomas ($3,000) was given plenty of targets in the offense.

Patterson as the bring back comes from the fact that the Falcons run the ball more than anyone, and he leads those touches. With the returning duties as well, he has an outside chance of returning a kick for a score just like he did last week.

Stack 2 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (v CLE)

O/U 42.5

Spread TB -3.5 (TB implied 23 Pts)

QB Tom Brady ($5,800)
RB Leonard Fournette ($5,800)
WR Mike Evans ($6,700)

Total $18,300

Optional bring-back Amari Cooper (CLE) +$6,400

I have to believe that at some point this offense clicks. It feels late in the season, but after their bye week, is this the week? Getting Brady for under $6k feels nice, with the yardage totals that he has managed through the air. Combining him with his primary receiving weapon, Mike Evans feels like an easy decision. The third prong being Fournette feels a little bit of a risk with Rachaad White ($5,100) having a great game last time out. I’ll probably mix one of them in a few lineups, with a slight leaning towards Fournette.

Cooper has been having a pretty decent season. Jacoby Brissett seems to be finding the time in the pocket to find Cooper in space, who has been looking almost undefendable at times.

Stack 3 - Seattle Seahawks (v LV)

O/U 47.5

Spread SEA -3.5 (SEA implied 26 Pts)

QB Geno Smith ($6,000)
WR DK Metcalf ($6,500)
WR Tyler Lockett ($6,200)

Total $18,700

Optional bring-back Foster Moreau (LV) +$3,400

The Seattle offense are performing well. The ground game gives Geno Smith the opportunity and platform to air it out to the receiving duo of Metcalf and Lockett. The Raiders secondary aren’t a strong unit either, with a nice O/U thrown in too, this is too good to pass up. And yes, I’m fine with double-stacking at receiver in this one.

The bring back of Moreau comes from the weakness Seattle have shown at defending the position. Moreau has been very hit and miss this season, but so have the majority of receivers not named Davante Adams. The price tag is great, so I’m happy to slot him in.

Stack 4 - Cincinnati Bengals (@TEN)

O/U 42.5

Spread CIN -2 (CIN implied 22 Pts)

QB Joe Burrow ($6,700)
RB Samaje Perine ($5,600)
WR Tee Higgins ($6,900)

Total $19,200

Optional bring-back Treylon Burks (TEN) +$4,200

I’m going to call it now- Joe Mixon I don’t think plays in this one, making Perine a really chalky play on the slate. We could see the return of Burrow’s top receiver, Ja’Marr Chase too, but I’m happy to roll with Higgins at the moment in the expectation Chase won’t be a full go if he does suit up. The Bengals offense is more than happy to air it out, as well as dump it off to the RBs, so Burrow should have plenty of volume against the Titans defense.

The bring-back of Burks might be chalky too, after he had a strong performance last week. The Titans are without doubt a run-first offense, but Burks has the big play ability to break a reception for a long gain. Last week, George Pickens was able to put up a decent box score on minimal opportunity- I’m expecting similar for Burks this week.
