Week 14 Daily Fantasy Football Tournament Stacks


We've reached Week 14 of the NFL season, and typically, that means it's postseason time in season-long fantasy football leagues. Whether your redraft team made the playoffs or not, there's no need to fret; daily fantasy is still here for you.

The goal of this weekly column is to help find the most profitable DFS stacks, while avoiding the duds. Stacking, or pairing multiple players from the same NFL team, is an ideal way to maximize your point production, which is crucial in larger GPP (guaranteed prize pool) tournaments.

Let's take a look at some of the top DFS stacks for Week 14, loosely sorted by salary.

High-Priced Week 14 DFS Stacks

Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers and WR Keenan Allen vs. Washington

The Chargers have clearly figured out their formula for success, and it involves healthy doses of both Allen and Rivers. Allen has put together three consecutive games with at least 10 catches, 100 yards and a touchdown.

Rivers has targeted his star wide receiver a whopping 41 times over that same three-game span. There's little reason to think that trend will change in a promising home matchup against the Redskins' 13th-ranked pass defense. Like last week, this is a chalk play, but it's a smart play.

Kansas City QB Alex Smith and TE Travis Kelce vs. Oakland

Smith was downright spectacular last Sunday, passing for 366 yards and four touchdowns (two to Kelce) against the New York Jets. Smith also added a 70-yard run to boot. Sure, the Chiefs ultimately lost their fourth-straight game, but that doesn't matter in the scheme of fantasy football.

The Raiders have allowed five touchdowns to opposing tight ends this season. Kelce should make it six on Sunday. Start him with Smith in what should be a high-scoring affair.

Oakland QB Derek Carr and WR Michael Crabtree at Kansas City

When it comes to high-scoring affairs, to takes two to tango. If Kansas City puts up points, expect Oakland to do the same against the Chiefs' 28th-ranked pass defense. Carr has been steady, but rarely amazing this season.

The return of Crabtree from suspension immediately boosts Carr's value. Despite not scoring since Week 7, Crabtree still leads Oakland with six receiving TDs. Plus, Amari Cooper (ankle) remains uncertain for this weekend's game. Expect Crabtree to be busy Sunday.

 

Moderately-Priced Week 14 DFS Stacks

Tampa Bay QB Jameis Winston and WR Mike Evans vs. Detroit

Winston returned from a shoulder injury last weekend and provided, well, a typical Winston game. He made some nice plays, including a pair of touchdown strikes to Cameron Brate, but he also made a few brutal mistakes (see his fumble that led to a Green Bay touchdown).

Still, Winston offers considerable upside in a home matchup against the Lions' 27th-ranked pass defense. The biggest reason why? Evans. The star receiver was unusually quiet last Sunday. Expect a bigger performance this time around.

Seattle QB Russell Wilson and TE Jimmy Graham at Jacksonville

The Jaguars' defense has not been kind to opposing quarterbacks this season, but anytime you can get two of fantasy's elite players at discounted prices, you have to consider it.

Wilson is averaging 285 total yards and three touchdowns per game over his last three outings, while Graham has nine TDs in his last eight games. It won't be easy against Jacksonville, but the upside is simply too high to fade these two.

Dallas QB Dak Prescott and WR Dez Bryant at New York Giants

Prescott's fantasy performance has plummeted since the suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott. In the four games Elliott has missed, Prescott has failed to top 180 passing yards and just two TD passes against five interceptions.

A matchup with the dysfunctional Giants and their 30th-ranked pass defense could be just what the doctor ordered for Prescott. His price tag has dropped in conjunction with his poor performance, so there's value to be had. Both Bryant and tight end Jason Witten are viable stack options.

 

Bargain-Priced Week 14 DFS Stacks

Cleveland QB DeShone Kizer and WR Josh Gordon vs. Green Bay

Welcome back, Flash Gordon! The Browns' much-maligned wideout caught four of his 11 targets for 85 yards against the Chargers last Sunday, his first game since late 2014. Gordon's production was impressive enough, but the target volume bodes well for the stretch run.

Green Bay's pass defense ranks 26th in the NFL, so Kizer should have little trouble finding Gordon throughout the game. All it takes is one long touchdown for this bargain stack to pay major dividends.

Buffalo QB Nathan Peterman and WR Kelvin Benjamin vs. Indianapolis

The last time we saw Peterman in the starting lineup it was, uh, not good. The rookie tossed five interceptions and was benched in a Week 11 thrashing by the Chargers. Peterman will likely start again this Sunday in place of an injured Tyrod Taylor.

The matchup is most alluring aspect of this stack, as the Colts rank last in the league in pass defense. Peterman should have more success moving the ball against Indianapolis than he did against Los Angeles.
