High 10 DFS Stacks for NFL Week 1
Jalen Hurts (QB) Philadelphia Eagles
A.J. Brown (WR) Philadelphia Eagles
Amon Ra St. Brown (WR) Detroit Lions
It’s easy. Jalen Hurts and A.J. Brown can break the slate this week. PFF has Brown as its highest-rated extensive receiver this week. The Eagles paid the person his cash and need to get him the ball to determine his dominance over the NFC East. Don’t be afraid of a scarcity of quantity. A.J. Brown is the quantity.
Based on PFF, the Eagles have a 31% cross blocking benefit and a whopping 62% rush blocking benefit. Hurts led the NFL in quarterback speeding makes an attempt (139) and yards (784). Final yr the Lions gave up 71 speeding yards on seven makes an attempt to Hurts. He didn’t rush for a landing, however the Eagles did rush for 4, Boston Scott and Jordan Howard each selecting up a pair.
Positive all of us watched Dan Campbell and the lovable Detroit Lions on HBO’s Laborious Knocks, however they’re in for some actual arduous knocks this week. One vibrant spot final yr for the Lions was Amon Ra St. Brown. He averaged 11.2 targets per recreation within the final six weeks of final season. Rookie extensive receiver Jameson Williams is beginning the season on the PUP listing which means it’s extra of the identical for St. Brown.

Gamers to pair with: Antonio Gibson (RB) Travis Etienne (RB)
Lamar Jackson (QB) Baltimore Ravens
Rashod Bateman (WR) Baltimore Ravens
Elijah Moore (WR) New York Jets
Lamar Jackson is again!! Contract be damned, the person goes to ball out this week. He has an enormous chip on his shoulder and the New York Jets are going to be his punching bag on Sunday. Final yr the Jets gave up 17.1 factors to quarterbacks per recreation. Jackson averaged 22.3 PPG final yr earlier than getting injured. The ground for Jackson is extraordinarily secure, but it surely’s his ceiling we care about.
Jackson has the second highest “Increase” fee of any quarterback on RunTheSims.com with 54.7, behind solely Jalen Hurts at 57.4. The emergence of Rashod Bateman as the brand new Ravens WR1 has DFS statheads buzzing. His $5,300 price ticket makes him an excellent stacking choice with Lamar this week.
The Jets are going to need to cross to maintain up with the Ravens, who’re 6.5-point highway favorites heading into New York. Elijah Moore is the most effective weapon the Jets and Zach “Mama’s Boy” Wilson have on this arms race. Moore scored over 20 factors in three of the final 5 weeks of the season.
That is the DFS Money professional for NimblewNumbers.com, Bo McBrayer’s (@Bo_McBigTime on Twitter) stack of the week. I perceive why. The upside is there for a recreation stack assault that would rating you 75 factors if the factors fall accordingly. Wheels up in all GPP codecs and money recreation winners.

Gamers to pair with: Joe Mixon (RB) Zach Ertz (TE)
Matt Ryan (QB) Indianapolis Colts
Michael Pittman (WR) Indianapolis Colts
with Brandin Cooks (WR) Houston Texans
Previous couple of years, Ryan was in DFS hell in Atlanta. Shedding Julio Jones to previous age, Calvin Ridley to stupidity, and Kyle Pitts to zone coverages. Jim Irsay ran Carson Wentz out of city with pitchforks (to Washington’s open arms). Enter Matt Ryan. I’m certain the primary individual to name him was Michael Pittman, inviting him over to the home for a recreation of “pin the interception on Carson.”
Colts scored the second most fantasy factors on the working again place, with stud Jonathan Taylor gouging protection all final season. Regardless of the give attention to the run recreation, Michael Pittman nonetheless scored 244 Draft Kings factors. This week he’s priced at his lowest worth of the season, $5,500. The DraftKings DFS gods have smiled upon us.
The Houston Texans gave up 17 touchdowns and over 2,800 receiving yards to extensive receivers in 2021. Pittman didn’t money in, solely changing his 11 targets into 112 yards with zero touchdowns. However don’t let his depressed worth scare you off. If Jonathan Taylor doesn’t run wild, Pittman and Ryan are an excellent contrarian play.
Including Brandin Cooks to the combo as a recreation stack runback is sensible, given the 46-point recreation whole. Final season Cooks was like 69% of the Texans’ offense, surpassing 1,000 receiving yards for the sixth season. The person balls. I’m taking part in this stack in small to medium GPP fields this week.

Gamers to pair with: Travis Etienne Jr. (RB) Kyle Pitts (TE)
Patrick Mahomes(QB) Kansas Metropolis Chiefs
Travis Kelce (TE) Kansas Metropolis Chiefs
James Conner (RB) Arizona Cardinals
Hollywood Brown (WR) Arizona Cardinals
Patrick Mahomes’ demise has been tremendously exaggerated. He nonetheless has his tight finish Travis Kelce, a perennial professional bowler who’s solely $6,600 this week. Final yr Kelce was within the $7000 many of the yr. Pay down whilst you nonetheless have the possibility. Kelce ought to see eight to 10 targets this week and has touched down upside written throughout him.
On the Arizona Cardinals aspect, Rondale Moore went down with an damage in Observe on Thursday. He seems uncertain for the sport on Sunday. The Cardinals’ offense might be concentrated round James Conner and Marquise Hollywood Brown. Each ought to see elevated workloads given an up-tempo recreation script with high-scoring shootout potential.
The Vegas bookmakers have this scripted for the highest-scoring recreation of the entire weekend. E book offenses have the potential to hold 35 factors on the scoreboard. The Chiefs averaged 29.4 factors per recreation. Only for reference.

Gamers to pair with: Antonio Gibson (RB) A.J. Brown (WR)
Joe Burrow (QB) Cincinnati Bengals
Ja’Marr Chase (WR) Cincinnati Bengals
Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase are electrical. And so they have been for a very long time. The Steeler’s cross protection isn’t what it was once, however they do have TJ watt, sack chief extraordinaire. The Bengals have exploited the Steelers on the bottom beforehand, however the -6.5 dwelling favorites are anticipated to place up factors on this match. 25.5 implied staff factors, to be exact. I’m leaning into Burrow and Chase.
Final yr the Steelers gave up 18 touchdowns and over 2,500 yards to extensive receivers. I count on Burrow to have the ability to exploit the Steelers’ protection utilizing Chase on the surface. Final season they linked 13 instances for touchdowns, third greatest within the NFL. His $7,100 price ticket ought to hold his rosters depressed for tournaments. The one skinny stack of the article, I’m taking part in this in mid-sized GPP tournaments and in 50/50 money contests.

Kirk Cousins (QB) Minnesota Vikings
Justin Jefferson (WR) Minnesota Vikings
Aaron Jones (RB) Inexperienced Bay Packers
Two years in the past, Kirk Cousins helped me Win $5,000. That Sunday, I stacked him with Justin Jefferson. With a 47.0 over beneath, this NFC Central Divisional matchup between the Vikings and Packers has a shootout written throughout it. I imply, each recreation this yr beneath new head coach Kevin O’Connell from Minnesota has a possible for a shootout.
The Vikings are going from the Stone Age with Mike Zimmer and his Instagram mannequin girlfriend to the Renaissance of an all-out aerial assault helmed by “Captain” Kirk Cousins. Justin Jefferson is popping in all of the fashions.
And I’m not speaking about Instagram. I’m speaking about knowledge fashions. This man’s received knowledge for days this week. Jefferson has the best extensive receiver ceiling in RunTheSims.com fashions this week.
On the opposite aspect of the ball, Aaron Rodgers goes to be with out Davante Adams indefinitely (wink), probably Allen Lazard with an ankle damage. Who else might he flip to? It’s a nice time to be Aaron Jones.
I’m fairly certain that whereas Aaron Rodgers is on an Ayahuasca journey all he might take into consideration was Aaron Jones, Aaron Jones, Aaron Jones. That’s why Aaron Jones was manifested again to the Packers. We didn’t know why. Now we do. Play him this week. He might catch 2 touchdowns.

I’m not going to go so far as to say in the event you don’t play Justin Herbert, you’re silly this week I’m simply going to say it will be silly to not play him this week. Since I’m not a silly man, I’m undoubtedly taking part in him this week. All, so go be taking part in it with Mike Williams.
I’m taking part in with Mike Williams as a result of Mike Williams goes to be lined up at instances in opposition to Anthony Averett. His 56.3 PFF rating was surprisingly not his career-worst final season. Both means, it’s good for Herbert and Williams and us to play them.
On the opposite aspect of the ball, you can’t however love Derek Carr’s new weapon, extensive receiver Davante Adams. Adams well-known mentioned, “Anytime you alter quarterbacks from Corridor of Famer to Corridor of Famer … it’s going to be a bit little bit of an adjustment.” When the season began, it was time for us to regulate.
Pairing him up with Darren Waller at $5,400 is likely one of the greatest offers and steals of Week 1. Waller is rarely going to be this low-cost once more this yr. Mark my phrases. Take it to the financial institution. Double stampy’s no erasies; contact blue make it true. Pay The Man his cash, and you’ll make some cash this week.

In case you’re fading Matt Ryan and Michael Pittman this week, I don’t blame you. Jonathan Taylor has run everywhere in the Houston Texans for the final two years. He nonetheless working over them proper now whereas I’m writing this text, and he could possibly be working over all of them Sunday lengthy as properly.
In case you’re going all in with Jonathan Taylor, additionally choose up the Colts’ protection as a result of within the final two video games in opposition to the Colts, they’ve solely scored 3 factors. That’s not good. This one’s a little bit of a no brainer, and it’s additionally low-cost. Don’t overthink this one.

Suppose you missed out on Trevor Lawrence final yr. You aren’t the one one. He was an enormous swing and a miss. This yr although, the fantasy gods have gifted him the Washington Commanders as a redemption arch. Their protection is horrible. The top coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Doug Pederson, is aware of all about it as a result of he was the Philadelphia Eagles head coach for 5 years.
Enter Christian Kirk and his 72 million greenback contract. The Washington soccer staff can’t cowl. Interval.

Jameis Winston didn’t say these phrases, however he’ll in all probability tomorrow in the event you give him an opportunity. Most significantly, although, I’m excited for the return of Kyle Pitts and Alvin Kamara, the 2 greatest gamers on the sphere.
All of the naysayers who’re apprehensive about Marcus Mariota with the ability to ship the ball to tight ends. I would really like you to return and have a look at Delanie Walker’s profession actual fast. Pause. (Insert YouTube video) Are you doing okay? Thanks. Now can we get again to this? Pitts goes to be a monster this yr and subsequent yr, and in all of the years to come back.
