NFL Week 6 DFS: Top DraftKings Stacks

NFL Week 6 DFS- Top DraftKings Stacks

Week 6 of the NFL season is upon us and with it the DraftKings Millionaire contest. This $20 slate has a prize pool of $4 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:

Washington vs. Kansas City: QB Taylor Heinicke ($5,800), WR Terry McLaurin ($7,100), TE Ricky Seals-Jones ($3,000), bring-back WR Tyreek Hill ($8,500) or TE Travis Kelce ($7,000):

This game has a chance to be the most popular play on DraftKings this week, but the ownership is likely to tilt heavily in favor of the Chiefs’ passing attack. And that is certainly understandable. But keep in mind that the Washington pass rush showed up last week in a way that hadn’t all season, and the Chiefs just seem a little out of sorts and will be starting their backup running back. I much prefer to get exposure to this game with the concentrated pass-catching on Washington’s side, with McLaurin, Seals-Jones, and Adam Humphries ($3,400) the only likely receivers to see volume here. Heinicke has been terrific in DFS all season and he will be throwing a ton here. Limiting KC exposure to Hill or Kelce helps offset the chalk, and if the Chiefs stumble again, you are ahead of the field.

Cincinnati Bengals at Detroit Lions: QB Joe Burrow ($6,300), WR Ja’Marr Chase ($6,700), WR Tee Higgins ($5,300), bring-back RB D’Andre Swift ($6,300):

The Bengals’ passing attack came up big last week against the Packers, so it only stands to reason their return to the NFC North should yield an even bigger payday against the lowly Lions in a wind-less dome game. Higgins’ return last week made a huge impact on the passing game, as Burrow attempted a season-high 38 passes. With Joe Mixon dinged up, the Bengals might rely on the pass as much or more this week. On the other side, the Bengals have allowed the most completions to running backs in the league and Swift is already averaging six receptions per game.
