Here are our top NFL games to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Week 16 main slate on Sunday

We go over our favorite games to stack for DFS on DraftKings for Week 16’s main slate.

We’re almost to the end of the NFL regular season and there are fewer games on the main slate for Sunday. We’ve got TNF, two Saturday games and three games on Christmas Day. The main slate will take place on Christmas Eve. We’ve got nine games to pick from and there aren’t many with high over/under totals. So we’re going a bit chalky with our stacks in Week 16. Below are the top games to stack on the main slate on DraftKings.

NFL DFS Picks: Game Stacks, Week 16

Lions vs. Vikings

Nick Mullens ($5,300)
Justin Jefferson ($8,100)
Sam LaPorta ($6,400)
Jameson Williams ($3,700)

There are a lot of different ways you can craft this stack. If you’d rather lean Lions, you can replace Jefferson with Amon-Ra St. Brown ($8,200). If you’d rather pay up at QB you can get Jared Goff ($6,900). Mullens played well enough last week against the Bengals to feel good about his as a value QB vs. Detroit. Jordan Addison ($6,000) may be the popular stacking option with Mullens after last week (32.1 DKFP). LaPorta also may go overlooked a bit on this slate given his price tag is highest among tight ends. Williams is coming off a season-high seven targets and four catches. He could be turning a corner; Williams was seeing plenty of snaps just not much to show for them. The Lions are 3.5-point road favorites and the over/under is 47 points on DraftKings Sportsbook, second-highest on the Sunday main slate.

Cowboys vs. Dolphins

Raheem Mostert ($7,300)
Tyreek Hill Q ($9,600)
CeeDee Lamb ($9,200)
Jake Ferguson ($4,800)

This is a weird stack, yes. Paying up for either Dak Prescott or Tua Tagovailoa seems like a bad idea. There are cheaper QB options that make more sense. You’re also going to want to pay down at a few positions in order to cram these players in.

Obviously, monitor the injury report to see if Hill is going to play. It feels like the Dolphins held him out last week to get some rest after being banged up. If Hill doesn’t return this week, Jaylen Waddle ($7,800) will be popular. Mostert continues to out-snap De’Von Achane ($7,100) and is the primary back in the red zone. So we’ll lean Mostert until the wheels fall off.

Ferguson lacks some upside, you could just spend up everywhere and go with Waddle and Hill with Mostert and Lamb. Ferguson saves us some cash and is still getting a pretty steady amount of targets with at least eight in three straight games.

Cardinals vs. Bears

Justin Fields ($7,100)
DJ Moore ($6,900)
Cole Kmet ($4,400)
James Conner ($5,900)

This is a stack we’d put in play if we thought the Cardinals would build a lead and lean on Conner, forcing the Bears to throw the ball a lot. That may not be the way this plays out but we’re stacking all the offensive players in this game who should see the most touches. The Bears stack with Fields-Moore-Kmet may go a bit overlooked on the slate in tournaments. Chicago isn’t playing for much but still technically aren’t eliminated from playoff contention. The total is at 44 on DKSB, which is on the higher end. The Bears are favored but don’t have a prototypical RB to eat up carries to kill clock. So Fields should be active and is a great standalone QB play. The Cards were blown out by the Niners last week and Conner still made it to 14 carries for 86 yards and a TD. His volume should be high so long as Arizona stays in the game (the spread is Bears -4).
