Week 1 NFL DFS Picks: High money recreation stacks for DraftKings, FanDuel      

QB Lamar Jackson and TE Mark Andrews, Ravens vs. Browns (DraftKings & FanDuel stack)

The Browns allowed the second-most fantasy factors to tight ends in 2019, so Andrews would function nicely as a standalone play. When you’ll be able to pair him with the reigning MVP in a supremely high-floor stack, it is sensible for money video games.

Even because the highest-priced QB on Sunday’s most important slate, Jackson will probably see excessive possession to open the season. That should not deter you from utilizing him in a cash-game setting, although. And perhaps his $eight,100 DK worth, which is $1.1K increased than Russell Wilson, will truly scare some people away. 

The important thing to a high-priced stack like this in Week 1 is that cuts and depth-chart bulletins within the ultimate week earlier than the season will not be accounted for on the slates which have already been on the DFS websites for some time. Which means there must be loads of bargains to fill in round each this and the following dear stack.

QB Drew Brees and WR Michael Thomas, Saints vs. Buccaneers (DraftKings stack)

You can select a Tom Brady stack with one in every of his receivers on this recreation, as there’ll certainly be loads of passing and factors. It is simply much less apparent whether or not Brady’s speedy success will are available in correlation with Chris Godwin or Mike Evans (or each). We all know that Brees and Thomas will stay one of the crucial prolific tandems in soccer in 2020.

DraftKings’ full PPR scoring makes Thomas value each ounce of his excessive worth. Brees additionally has a brand new weapon this yr in Emmanuel Sanders, so even on the performs he would not throw to Thomas, there’s some new explosiveness to work with.

And when you had been questioning: When Thomas performed Tampa Bay final yr, he caught 13 passes and 10 passes, respectively, each occasions going over 100 yards and scoring three complete touchdowns. That is as secure a play as you are discovering in Week 1.

QB Tom Brady, WR Chris Godwin and WR Mike Evans, Buccaneers @ Saints (FanDuel stack)

Brady has a worth beneath the likes of Matt Ryan and Carson Wentz on FD this week, which is not insulting or something however is value profiting from. The Saints allowed the fourth-most fantasy factors to WRs final yr, so why not pair Brady along with his two new, celebrity toys? Even when Leonard Fournette performs a giant position in Bruce Arians’ offense finally, it will not be Week 1 — this recreation shall be a shootout that may be game-stacked when you so select. 

Whereas it is usually event stacks that function an onslaught of three or extra gamers from the identical workforce, this Tampa Bay group has benefit in money video games. Evans and Godwin proved in 2019 that they’ll have good video games on the identical time, and it might be virtually unattainable for them to each battle in the identical recreation. That signifies that you need to have a extremely profitable stack between your QB and at the very least one in every of your WRs. You can be nicely in your solution to the money line.

Week 1 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: Finest stacks for every day fantasy soccer GPPs/tournaments

QB Tyrod Taylor, WR Keenan Allen and WR Jalen Guyton, Chargers @ Bengals (FanDuel stack)

Most weeks, if I am attempting to be contrarian and outright win a DFS event, I will play an affordable quarterback. The DFS websites can typically be unsuitable on their pricing on the ability positions, however they’re usually fairly spot on in terms of QB. That signifies that though they’re cheaper, folks will not present a lot curiosity in taking part in the lowest-priced passers.

Taylor must be an exception come Week 1. Priced $2.5K beneath Jackson and $1.4K beneath Wilson, Taylor possesses a greater ceiling than his price offers him credit score for. The ground offered by his dashing capability additionally presents a powerful ceiling if Taylor has passing day. The Bengals had been dangerous in opposition to QBs on the whole final yr, and so they additionally received torched by dashing QBs, permitting probably the most dashing yards to quarterbacks within the league. 

Allen is a superb play most weeks when wholesome on DK due to their full-PPR scoring, and he shapes up as Taylor’s prime goal in Week 1, particularly with Mike Williams (shoulder) probably out. Williams’ probably absence makes Guyton extra interesting, as he is a big-bodied, speedy menace who is not confirmed on the NFL stage. He is additionally priced because the minimal $3K on DraftKings regardless of a possible beginning position in Week 1. All he’ll want is one large play to repay in a giant approach, and utilizing him lets you pay up everywhere in the remainder of your lineup.

QB Mitchell Trubisky and WR Allen Robinson, Bears @ Lions (DraftKings stack)

Trubisky is even cheaper than Taylor, and I will admit to not loving him as a season-long QB this yr. I hoped to make use of Nick Foles as this GPP stack, however apparently Matt Nagy had different concepts. Trubisky nonetheless matches a event mould simply wonderful, although, particularly as a result of he runs greater than Foles. And Trubisky managed to assist Robinson be productive at occasions in 2019. One of the best a part of this high-risk, high-reward play is that Trubisky’s possession must be miniscule (And guess what? He threw three touchdowns in each conferences with Detroit final yr!).

Robinson is without doubt one of the most gifted wideouts in soccer and will deserve a play in opposition to Detroit even when you do not use Trubisky. With Trubisky in a event, it is a must-have stack. When you’re feeling like doing the three-player stack like we did with the Chargers, Anthony Miller is the one logical alternative to make use of, as it is not apparent how a lot of Chicago’s depth chart will shake out but.

RB Devin Singletary and D/ST Buffalo Payments vs. Jets (FanDuel stack)

The Payments made upgrades to their protection within the offseason by including the likes of Mario Addison and A.J. Epenesa on the line of defense, and so they simply paid Tre’Davious White, which ought to make him very blissful, particularly when he realizes he will get to face Sam Darnold in Week 1. The Payments are one of many higher-priced defenses on the slate for good motive, and they need to don’t have any hassle shutting New York down.

What which means is a number of possession for the Payments and doubtless a number of operating. The chatter out of camp has seen a number of favoritism for rookie Zack Moss, however Singletary was excellent final yr, regardless of a number of premature fumbles. Possibly Singletary loses his job finally, but it surely should not occur in Week 1. In addition to, all of the unfavorable press for Singletary ought to hold his possession low and permit this game-flow stack to pay dividends.
