Week 1 of the college football season continues on DraftKings with the first major Saturday slate of the season, featuring 13 games. This $15 slate has a prize pool of $150,000, with $50,000 going to the winner. And, as always, you can expect the winning lineup to have at least one three-man stack. Let’s take a look at the best stacking options on the slate:
Alabama: QB Bryce Young ($8,900), WR John Metchie III ($8,100), WR Jameson Williams ($5,200):
The names change, the program remains the same. These skills positions have completely turned over, but all three are stars in the making, and the addition of Williams keeps the big-play threat alive and well. You can almost never go wrong stacking the Tide.
Texas: QB Hudson Card ($6,900), RB Bijan Robinson ($7,400), WR Jordan Whittington ($5,000):
Another powerhouse with major turnover at the skills positions, Texas shouldn’t have too much trouble with Louisiana, and the Card-Whittington combo has a chance to make some noise on the slate. But Card is still just a redshirt freshman making his first career start, so the team will likely lean on Robinson heavily, and the running back could see some targets as a check-down option.
Michigan: QB Cade McNamara ($8,1,00), WR Ronnie Bell ($7,000); Western Michigan: WR Sky Moore ($5,900):
This is a game that Michigan should handle pretty easily, but they struggle to run the ball, so the combo of McNamara and Bell has a chance to hook up for several big plays. Cornelius Johnson ($6,700) is also viable here. And to complete the game stack, bringing McNamara-Bell back with Western Michigan’s Moore is a solid correlation play with some value.
