Week 6 Top DFS Stacks

By Jared Smola | Updated on Tue, 23 May 2023 . 1:27 PM EDT


Deshaun Watson - Brandin Cooks - Will Fuller - Derrick Henry

Texans/Titans may be my favorite game stack of the week as I think both offenses will have great success going up against mediocre defenses on the other side.

Deshaun Watson has faced Mike Vrabel’s defense 3 times and finished as the QB10, QB11, and QB1 in those matchups.

Both Brandin Cooks and Will Fuller have positive matchups going up against a Titans secondary that’s been getting flamed week in and week out.

Meanwhile, opposing RBs are averaging over 5 yards per carry against this Texans defense. Derrick Henry lit them up for 297 yards and 3 TDs on 53 carries in a pair of 2019 matchups.

If Henry and the Titans build an early lead, this stack could go off with the Texans throwing the ball every play and the Titans feeding the beast.


Ryan Tannehill - A.J. Brown - Will Fuller

Again, this is my favorite game-stack of the week, so I’ll be playing both sides of it.

Tannehill always goes under-owned as he does not have a good reputation amongst the DFS community. Teammate Derrick Henry is usually the guy people pile on from the Titans.

Tannehill has been a top-7 fantasy QB in 2 of his past 3 games and offers sneaky rushing upside going up against a poor secondary that has allowed 9 passing TDs with 0 INTs.

A.J. Brown is the clear stacking option with Tannehill as Brown shafted the Texans for 8-114-1 and 4-124-1 lines in his 2 matchups against them last season.


Lamar Jackson - Mark Andrews

Jackson may come in under-owned this week after struggling again last week against the Bengals and not using his legs as much as he did last season.

He’s an especially good play in Week 6 with stud QBs Russell Wilson, Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen not on the main slate. Lamar is the highest priced QB and Andrews is the highest priced TE. But for good reason, as they easily have the highest upside at their positions.

In lineups where I use Lamar, I’ll be pairing him with Andrews, who has an excellent matchup going up against the Eagles’ 30th ranked TE pass defense.


Cam Newton - Patriots Defense

With Cam Newton expected back this week off the COVID list, he may come in under-owned in an excellent matchup against a depleted Broncos team.

The Broncos have given up top-15 QB performances to each of the last 4 QBs they have faced. They’ve also allowed the 7th most rushing yards to opposing QBs.

I expect the Patriots to dominate on both sides of the ball and Cam should have an excellent chance at rushing TDs with the Patriots expected to be in the red zone early and often.

Going up against Drew Lock, who missed the last month due to injury, and with the Broncos decimated on both sides of the ball, I think it makes a lot of sense to stack Newton and Patriots DST as a correlation play.
