Stacking the Deck: FanDuel & DraftKings Stacks for Week 15
Welcome back to Stacking the Deck. This season at 4for4 we will be providing subscribers with Value Reports and Stack Value Reports that value every stack in terms of projected points/$. We also use our Adjusted Fantasy Points Against (aFPA) metric heavily in the column. What’s new this year is we know have the have the advantage of putting into practice two great offseason studies from my colleague, Senior DFS Editor, Chris Raybon: The Definitive Guide to Stacking on FanDuel and The Definitive Guide to Stacking on DraftKings.
With Week 15 games on Thursday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, it is shaping up to be a fantastic opportunity to play tournaments on multiple slates. Don't be satisfied with playing the same contests every week. Not only are payout structures constantly in flux, you can catch nice overlay in situations like this if you take the time to seek it out. We will continue to focus on positive correlations in this column, but also put a higher emphasis on leverage plays in GPPs. The following are my top stacks for Week 15 on both FanDuel and DraftKings.
Derek Carr ($7,900) & Michael Crabtree ($6,000) @ SD
Quarterback and WR1 have a .45 correlation on FanDuel, the strongest of all positions. The Raiders are a road favorite (-3) with tied for the sixth-highest implied team total of the week (26). After Carr embarrassed himself last week on Thursday Night Football, completing 17-of-41 passes, no one will be on him even though there’s a good chance his finger injury and the cold was partly to blame. Crabtree will see Trevor Williams instead of Casey Hayward most of the game -- Hayward will likely shadow Amari Cooper. The Carr-Crabtree stack is our #7 rated QB/REC stack in our FanDuel Stack Value Reports.
