Week 4 NFL DFS Stacks and Picks
Joe Burrow + Ja’Marr Chase
- Joe Burrow ($6,500 DraftKings, $7,200 FanDuel)
- Ja’Marr Chase ($7,800 DraftKings, $8,200 FanDuel)
Joe Burrow only had 9.2 DraftKings points last week against the Rams, but he got the job done and led them to a win when they needed it. His status was in question coming into the game, and the Bengals responded by dropping Burrow back to pass 50 times. He now gets a matchup with Tennessee’s pass funnel defense, which we’ve been targeting for weeks.
If Burrow was 100% healthy, he’d likely be one of the highest-owned quarterbacks of the week. However, his injury and poor play will likely keep his ownership down. Tennessee’s defense ranks in the bottom six in completion rate, yards per attempt, and yards per completion.
We’ve been targeting Tennessee’s defense through the air, and this week is no different. You could opt to include Tee Higgins instead of Ja’Marr Chase, or even with Chase. However, I think my preferred route of attack (as of Friday night) is doing a single stack. This could easily change come Sunday, though, especially with how much volume I expect for this passing attack.
Chase gets a matchup against Tennessee, which means lock and load. They’ve already given up 8/112/0 to Chris Olave, 8/111/2 to Keenan Allen, and 7/116/1 to Amari Cooper.
He’s currently projected to be lower owned than Keenan Allen, Davante Adams, and Stefon Diggs, who are all priced within $300 of Chase. Tyreek Hill is also projecting more ownership at $1,000 more. If these ownerships reign true, someone has to get squeezed into lower ownership, especially in small-field contests. That player is likely Chase.
I love this stack this week.
Justin Fields + D.J. Moore + Marvin Mims Jr.
- Justin Fields ($6,600 DraftKings, $7,200 FanDuel)
- D.J. Moore ($5,600 DraftKings, $6,100 FanDuel)
- Marvin Mims Jr. ($3,900 DraftKings, $5,400 FanDuel)
This is a make-or-break spot for Justin Fields. He’s been abysmal but now gets to face a defense that just allowed 70 points in an NFL game. Denver has allowed a league-high completion rate, yards per attempt, and touchdown rate, while boasting the lowest pressure rate in the league.
This seems like a spot where you could hold your nose and invest. We saw Fields over $1,000 more expensive just a few weeks ago, and if he is ever going to get right, this is likely the spot. Everyone is off of him, but no one wants to admit that Tampa Bay boasts a solid defense, and so does Kansas City. This is Fields’ first real spot against a weak opponent.
When stacking him, D.J. Moore is the only logical option that doesn’t induce vomiting. Moore caught three of six targets last week for 41 yards and a touchdown.
On the other side, Marvin Mims Jr. has made big play after big play for Denver, and there are rumblings that he could have an increased role. He’s a prime bring-back option, as he’s cheap and has big play upside that can speed the game up.

Justin Herbert + Keenan Allen + Joshua Palmer + Davante Adams or Josh Jacobs
- Justin Herbert ($7,800 DraftKings, $8,600 FanDuel)
- Keenan Allen ($7,900 DraftKings, $9,500 FanDuel)
- Joshua Palmer ($4,000 DraftKings, $6,100 FanDuel)
- Davante Adams ($8,000 DraftKings, $8,100 FanDuel)
- Josh Jacobs ($7,100 DraftKings, $8,200 FanDuel)
If Jimmy Garoppolo ends up missing this contest, I’ll likely be far more interested in mini correlations with one of the Chargers’ options and one of the Raiders’ options as opposed to a full-game stack. However, if Garoppolo plays, Justin Herbert looks like a great target.
The Raiders have allowed the third-highest completion rate and touchdown rate to opposing quarterbacks on the year. Austin Ekeler was listed as doubtful for this contest. With him sidelined, Herbert has dropped back to pass 41 and 47 times.
Keenan Allen looked like one of the strongest plays heading into Week 3, and boy, did he deliver. Allen caught 18 of 20 targets for 215 yards. Just to annoy anyone who faded him, he also threw a 49-yard touchdown pass to Mike Williams. Allen had 48.46 DraftKings points last week, bringing his yearly total up to 96.76 through just three games. In back-to-back weeks, Allen was the highest-scoring receiver,
With Mike Williams sidelined for the year, Joshua Palmer steps into an every-down role for Los Angeles. He ran a route on 100% of the dropbacks that Williams missed last week. With Williams off the field in 2022, Palmer ran a route on 93% of the dropbacks. Quentin Johnston is a long-term threat to jump Palmer for the number two receiver spot, but not yet. Right now, this is Palmer’s show.
With Williams off the field last season, Palmer saw a 20.8% target share and 18.6% target rate per route run. Similarly to Allen, the matchup is awesome. Vegas has allowed the second-highest catch rate to opposing receivers on the year and a healthy 9.1 yards per target.
The matchup for these two receivers is elite, as Vegas has allowed the second-highest catch rate to opposing receivers on the year and a healthy 9.1 yards per target.
Davante Adams and Josh Jacobs both have elite roles in this Las Vegas offense. Jacobs has 55 of 64 backfield touches on the year but hasn’t had much efficiency. He’s averaged just 2.4 yards per carry on the year, which is the lowest of his career. Tennessee and Minnesota backs have both eclipsed 150 total yards against the Chargers in the past two weeks, so maybe this is the spot where Jacobs marries volume with efficiency.
Adams was a target monster on Monday night, catching 13 of 20 targets for 172 yards and two touchdowns. The matchup is amazing, as Los Angeles has allowed the most yards per target and yards per catch to opposing wide receivers. We saw him perform well with Jarrett Stidham last year, so if Garoppolo were to miss, it wouldn’t completely take him off of my radar.
