NFL DFS DraftKings Best Stacks for Week 13

Picking the right offense to stack can give your lineups the winning edge. Here are five of the top stacks for Week 13 DraftKings NFL DFS action.

While chalk has been hitting consistently this season in NFL DFS, the winning lineup in the Milly Maker on DraftKings in Week 12 didn’t have much chalk in their lineup. The winner of the Milly Maker only had one player (the defense of the New York Jets) that had a rostership percentage higher than 20% while Mark Andrews was the second-highest rostered player at 17.4%.

Meanwhile, high-rostered players like Jeff Wilson Jr. and Terry McLaurin fell short of returning value at their salaries. This goes to show that paying attention to rostership percentages and using them to your own advantage can be beneficial in GPPs.

After a crazy week of football in Week 12, here are my favorite stacks and bring-back options for the Week 13 main slate on DraftKings.

Joe Burrow ($6,900) + Ja’Marr Chase ($7,900) + Tee Higgins ($7,200) or Tyler Boyd ($5,300)

We have a matchup between Burrow and Patrick Mahomes in Week 13, and with Burrow being more affordable, he’s the preferred quarterback to target in the game. Burrow boasts a 0.49 PER (sixth among QBs) and he’s produced three 30-plus-point performances this season while the Chiefs are giving up the 10th most points per game to QBs.

Chase is officially expected to play for the first time since Week 7, so we may want to temper expectations on his ceiling in his first game back. Higgins should still see a decent number of opportunities with Chase back after scoring 26-plus points in back-t0-back weeks. Boyd has seen his salary drop to $5,300 due to his recent struggles, but he could see things open up in the slot with Chase back in the offense.

Bring-back options: Travis Kelce ($7,900), JuJu Smith-Schuster ($5,700), Isiah Pacheco ($5,700) Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($4,100)

Kelce is going to be popular this week and for good reason as he continues to separate himself as the best tight end in the NFL. With Kadarius Toney and Mecole Hardman trending toward being out for the Chiefs, Smith-Schuster and Valdes-Scantling are in store for more opportunities in the passing game. Pacheco has carried the ball 15 times in three straight games and he has a firm hold of the starting job in Kansas City’s backfield with Clyde Edwards-Helaire inactive.

Justin Herbert ($7,200) + Austin Ekeler ($8,500) + Keenan Allen ($6,500) or Josh Palmer ($5,600)

Herbert has looked healthier in recent weeks as he’s pushing the ball down the field more and he just registered a season-high 28.8 points in Week 12 versus the Cardinals. Following a positive matchup against the Cardinals, Herbert now gets to square off against a Raiders defense that is allowing the second-most points per game to QBs.

Ekeler has the same target share (21.1%) as Garrett Wilson and a higher target share than guys like Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, so he’s unquestionably viable to stack with Herbert. Allen and Palmer appear to be the top two options at wide receiver with Mike Williams not practicing on Thursday. You can also use DeAndre Carter and Gerald Everett in Chargers stacks this week.

Bring-back options: Davante Adams ($8,700), Josh Jacobs ($7,900), Mack Hollins ($4,600), Foster Moreau ($3,600)

Adams now leads the NFL with a massive 30.9% target share as he’s garnered 11-plus targets in four consecutive games. Jacobs just exploded for a season-best 51.3 points on DraftKings in Week 12 and the Chargers are giving up a league worst 5.6 yards per attempt to RBs, though, he’s dealing with a calf injury. Hollins and Moreau should continue seeing increased snaps with Hunter Renfrow and Darren Waller sidelined, making them solid salary-relief options in GPPs.

Trevor Lawrence ($5,900) + Christian Kirk ($6,300) + Zay Jones ($4,900) or Evan Engram ($3,000)

My favorite quarterback to stack this week just might be Lawrence. The second-year quarterback has produced 21-plus points in four of his last six games, including a season-high 28.9 points in Week 12 versus the Ravens. The Lions are also permitting the most points per game to QBs this season.

While Detroit’s defense is allowing the third-most points per game to WRs, they are giving up the most points per game to slot WRs this season, which is where Kirk does the majority of his damage. Jones just notched a season-high 30.5 points in Week 12 and he’s earned 10-plus targets in two straight games. Even though Engram has struggled recently, the Lions allow the fourth-most points per game to TEs this season.

Bring-back options: Amon-Ra St. Brown ($7,100), Jamaal Williams ($6,000), D’Andre Swift ($5,600), DJ Chark ($3,800)

The Lions are favored at home in a game with the second-highest projected total (51) on the main slate. With the Lions likely throwing the ball often with Jared Goff, St. Brown should be busy again as he’s commanded eight-plus targets in five straight contests. I’ll have exposure to Williams and Swift in tournaments, and even with his recent woes, Swift is intriguing as he’s fallen to a season-low salary of $5,600. There are a few other wideouts to consider on the Lions, but Chark has the revenge-game narrative going and he saw more snaps than Josh Reynolds in Week 12.

Mike White ($5,400) + Garrett Wilson ($5,300) + Elijah Moore ($3,700) or Tyler Conklin ($3,100)

I feel like I might be a week late on being able to get White at extremely low rostership, but the matchup against a Vikings defense that is giving up the fifth-most points per game to QBs is tough to pass up. White torched the Bears for 27.8 points in Week 12 in his first start of the season.

Wilson notched 26.4 points in Week 12 in his first game catching passes from White and the Vikings allow the fourth-most points per game to WRs. Moore finally got involved in the offense in Week 12 with 64 yards and a touchdown, and he’s still under $4,000 on DraftKings. Corey Davis and Conklin are other guys to consider stacking with White as New York’s offense suddenly looks viable in NFL DFS following the benching of Zach Wilson.

Bring-back options: Justin Jefferson ($8,900), Dalvin Cook ($7,200), T.J. Hockenson ($5,200), Adam Thielen ($5,000)

DraftKings is making it tough to pay up at the wide receiver position, but Jefferson is matchup proof and he’s averaging 24.2 points per game this season, which is the most among WRs on the main slate. Cook has fallen to a season-low salary of $7,200 despite his workload not changing much in recent weeks. Hockenson and Thielen are the most affordable bring-back options on the Vikings, but stacking the Jets should make it possible to get Jefferson or Cook into your lineups.

Jared Goff ($5,300) + Amon-Ra St. Brown ($7,100) + Khalif Raymond ($3,900) or DJ Chark ($3,800)

On the other side of the Jaguars/Lions game, I like stacking Goff this week. Even though he’s failed to produce more than 18 points in four straight games, Goff is averaging 21.9 points per game on DraftKings in home games compared to 9.9 points per game in road contests.

St. Brown leads the Lions with a 24.1% target share and he’s recorded 15-plus points in three straight games. Even though it was Reynolds who was operating as the No. 2 wide receiver earlier this season, Raymond and Chark saw more snaps than him in Week 12.

Bring-back options: Travis Etienne Jr. ($6,400), Christian Kirk ($6,300), Zay Jones ($4,900), Evan Engram ($3,000)

Etienne was held out of the second half of Week 12’s win over the Ravens and he remains questionable for Week 13 with a foot injury. If Etienne is ruled out, JaMycal Hasty becomes a nice bring-back option at $5,000. Kirk and Jones are the preferred pass-catching weapons from the Jaguars while Engram shouldn’t command much attention in GPPs considering his low output in recent weeks. You can also take GPP dart throws with Marvin Jones Jr. and Jamal Agnew.
