Week 17 Top DFS Stacks

By Tyler Siracuse 10:01pm EST 1/1/21


Deshaun Watson - Brandin Cooks - Keke Coutee - Derrick Henry

Texans vs. Titans features the highest over/under on the slate at a whopping 56 in a duel between 2 terrible offenses and 2 explosive offenses.

Deshaun Watson has been a stud even without Will Fuller in the lineup, eclipsing 300+ yards passing in 5 of his last 6 games.

Watson has a solid rushing floor, as well, with 36+ yards in 5 of his past 7 games. The matchup is excellent against a Titans defense that has allowed the 4th most fantasy points to opposing QBs.

I’ll be pairing up Deshaun Watson with Brandin Cooks and Keke Coutee against a terrible Titans secondary that has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing WRs.

I’ll be stacking this game in many different ways, but Derrick Henry is a key component in stacks as I love his chances of finishing as the top scoring RB on the slate. The Texans have given up the most fantasy points to RBs, and the Titans are favored by 9 points in a must-win situation to clinch the AFC South and a playoff berth.


Ryan Tannehill - A.J. Brown - Brandin Cooks

Tannehill has a great price tag on DraftKings at just $7,000 as the QB10. He’s $8,200 as QB6 on FanDuel.

The Texans defense has been terrible all season, ranking 24th against the pass and worst against the run.

The Titans need a win to make the playoffs and clinch the AFC South and should be hungry after an embarrassing loss against the Packers in Week 16.

Tannehill is a high-upside GPP play as he has 4 games over 30+ DK points and offers some leverage as teammate Derrick Henry will probably come in very high-owned against the Texans.

A.J. Brown is the perfect stack option with Tannehill as he has a propensity to catch long TD passes which would give the combo double points and also take away from chalky teammate Derrick Henry.

Brown has had some monster games this season even with limited volume with 3 games of 100+ yards and 10 TDs on the season. Brown has 6 games this year with over 20+ DK points.

Brandin Cooks is a good option on the other side of the ball coming off a 30.1-point day against the Bengals. The matchup for Cooks is excellent against a Titans secondary that has allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing WRs.


Kirk Cousins - Alexander Mattison - Justin Jefferson - D’Andre Swift

Cousins is way too cheap on both sites this week, especially on DraftKings as the QB12 in a pristine matchup against the Lions, who have given up the 3rd most fantasy points to opposing QBs.

Cousins has been solid with 18+ DK points in 8 consecutive games, including 23+ in 4 of his last 6.

Alexander Mattison is extremely underpriced on FanDuel and is in play on DraftKings as well with Dalvin Cook already ruled out.

If the Vikings elect to go more pass heavy, it should benefit both Cousins and rookie Justin Jefferson, who has been having a monster 2nd half of the season.

Jefferson leads all rookies with 1,267 yards and has a solid 7 TDs on the season with 3 games over 30+ DK points. He gets an incredible matchup this week against the Lions, who have allowed the 2nd most fantasy points to opposing WRs.

D’Andre Swift is in play as a run-back option on the Lions side of the ball as he has been the team’s primary pass-catching back with 4+ receptions in each of his past 4 games.

Swift can also be explosive as a rusher with a couple of multi-TD games on the season despite missing several weeks due to injury.


Russell Wilson - D.K. Metcalf - George Kittle

This stack should come in low-owned as Wilson hasn’t had a ceiling game since Week 7 against the Cardinals with 35.9 DK points.

Wilson has really slowed down the past 7 weeks as he hasn’t eclipsed 23 points since Week 9 against the Bills.

Wilson has had just 1 TD pass in 4 of his last 5 games after having 14 through his first 3 games of the season.

He still has excellent numbers on the season with 4,031 yards and 38 TDs and I think there is a chance he has 1 last big game against the 49ers before the playoffs begin.

D.K. Metcalf would be my preferred stacking partner with Russ since he can catch long TDs and has been much more productive than Tyler Lockett for the past several games.

Metcalf can break the slate with 4 games over 25+ DK points, including a 43.1 DK point performance against the 49ers back in Week 8.

George Kittle is the player I want to use from the 49ers as he returned from a long absence last week to post 92 yards on just 5 targets and 4 receptions.

Kittle didn’t play a normal workload but looked like himself as he was explosive after the catch.

Kittle has been injured for most of the season but still has elite upside with a couple games over 100+ yards, including a massive game against the Eagles with 183 yards and a TD back in Week 2.
