The Top DFS Stacks on FanDuel and DraftKings in Week 8
Here I’ll be diving into stacks that mainly involve the week’s highest over/unders. For starters, I’ll lead with my favorite game stack from the highest implied over/under game, followed by analyzing the next three games with the highest totals on the slate, and then a low-owned stack.
Top Stacks From Games With High Vegas Totals
Cowboys (26.25) @ Redskins (24.25) — Over/Under - 50.5
This game has potential to lead to a shootout, as it boasts the slate’s highest over/under at 50.5 points. Per Adam Levitan, Kirk Cousins heads into this game with seventeen 300-yard passing games in his last 38 games, which is a higher rate than any active starting quarterback in the league. Cousins averages 301 passing yards, 1.64 touchdowns, and 0.91 interceptions dating back to last year.
The one downside to Cousins is trying to figure out who to stack him with because Cousins tends to spread the ball around. Jordan Reed might be healthy (for now), as he played 78 percent of the snaps for the Redskins last Monday night. Reed was heavily involved, catching 8-of-10 targets for 64 yards and 2 touchdowns, and boasts plenty of upside as the most imposing red zone threat on the Redskins.
Judging by the Vegas lines, you could deduce that since the Cowboys may be leading later in the game, Ezekiel Elliott may be in clock-killing mode as the Cowboys attempt to keep the Redskins offense off the field. Through seven weeks, Elliott is averaging 24.8 touches per game, which trails only LeVeon Bell.
Chargers (20.25) @ Patriots (27.75) — Over/Under - 48
