NFL Week 12 DFS: DraftKings' Top Stacks

Week 12 of the NFL season is upon us and with it the DraftKings Millionaire contest. This $20 slate has a prize pool of $3.5 million, with a cool million going to the winner. And, as always, you can expect the winning lineup to have some form of a stack. Let’s take a look at the best stacking options on the slate:

San Francisco 49ers vs. Minnesota Vikings: QB Jimmy Garoppolo ($5,700), QB Kirk Cousins ($6,300), RB Dalvin Cook ($8,100), WR Deebo Samuel ($7,900), WR Brandon Aiyuk ($5,300), WR Justin Jefferson ($8,300), WR Adam Thielen ($6,700), TE George Kittle ($6,400):

It almost doesn’t matter how you decide to stack this game, because this contest is an absolute fantasy goldmine. Whether you go heavy 49ers and bring back a Viking or the other way around, it’s hard to imagine this game not hitting for a big number.

Neither of these defenses has been able to stop their opponents all season. I would personally lean toward the cheaper 49ers side of the equation with Jimmy G and Aiyuk, but I plan to have heavy exposure to all the key pieces here across my lineups.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Indianapolis Colts: QB Tom Brady ($7,600), WR Chris Godwin ($7,000), TE Rob Gronkowski ($4,400), RB Jonathan Taylor ($9,100):

I want to have Jonathan Taylor exposure, as his elevated price is likely to see a drop in ownership. I also expect points to get scored on both sides of this game, and with enough value at the other RB position, as well as a wide receiver, I can jam in the top Buccaneers passing elements and Taylor and not feel as though I’ve sacrificed value elsewhere.

Mike Evans’ status is worth checking here, as he’s removal from the offense would make Godwin and Gronk potential smash plays with Brady.
