Ahead of our slate breakers article, I thought I’d write up some of my favorite DraftKings stacks for the Week 4 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
- High game total
Stack 1 - Detroit Lions (v SEA)
Spread DET -4.0 (DET implied 26 Pts)
QB Jared Goff ($5,900)
WR Amon-Ra St. Brown ($7,700)
RB Jamaal Williams ($6,100)
This stack is affordable, and isn’t the most obvious one to opt for in tournaments- giving it more GPP appeal. The game itself is expected to be one of the more high scoring ones on the slate, but not the headline game, giving it a bit of uniqueness.
Goff & St. Brown are a great pair, with Goff relying on the receiver heavily. Infact, St. Brown is one of the league leaders in targets to start the season. There is some concern around the injury to St. Brown, so if the news trends to him not playing I might move off of the stack, or pivot to DJ Chark $5,000 in some lineups.
Williams is going to be a really popular play on the slate, with him looking like the lead back in this game. When you combine his usage in the redzone, and as a pass-catcher, he is going to be a chalky play, combining him with Goff and St. Brown gets rid of the chalk.
Stack 2 - Atlanta Falcons (v CLE)
Spread ATL +3.0 (ATL implied 24 Pts)
QB Marcus Mariota ($5,600)
WR Drake London ($6,100)
TE Kyle Pitts ($5,000)
This is another cheaper stack you could opt for. The Falcons offense has a very concentrated offense, in that few players account for a huge amount of targets. Mariota, unlike Goff, has individual value with his legs. The Falcons are going to need to chase points, and be forced through the air with the Browns likely to dominate the clock with their ground game.
Kyle Pitts feels like a hard player to put into lineups as a stand-alone piece because you aren’t getting the full benefit on the games on where he hits. Between London and Pitts, they have combined for 43 targets so far this season.
Stack 3 - Baltimore Ravens (v BUF)
Spread BUF -3.0 (BUF implied 27 Pts)
QB Josh Allen ($8,400)
WR Stefon Diggs ($8,400)
WR Isaiah McKenzie ($5,100)/ Dawson Knox ($3,800)
Total $21,900/ $20,600
The Bills and Ravens game is the highest-scoring game on the slate, with both offenses looking good and having issues in their secondaries. Josh Allen gives you a top-tier QB with a safe floor on the ground.
Diggs is the target-hog in the offense and has been effective (as well as being undefendable). I feel like I’m forcing the third option here, so that I can include them. Alot of people are going to just opt for Allen and Diggs, adding a third in larger field tournaments can help you get a different lineup.
Knox hasn’t scored yet this season, and feels due. McKenzie has been a great slot receiver for the team, and is second on the team in TDs. Of the two I think I’m opting for McKenzie, but I’m fine with either.
