Fantasy Football QB-WR Stacks: Top DraftKings NFL DFS Quarterback-Wide Receiver Picks for Week 15

Landon Silinsky gives his top QB and WR stacks to consider for this week’s main DraftKings fantasy football slate.

Here are my four favorite NFL QB-WR stacks for this week’s main DraftKings fantasy football slate.

The concept behind stacking a QB with his WR is simple: Both players benefit from each completion, doubling the value of that play for your DraftKings fantasy football lineup. With the significance of stacking in mind, this article aims to highlight the best stacking options for Sunday’s main slate.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Jets QB Mike White (ribs) will not be cleared for contact before Sunday’s game vs. the Lions, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. QB Zach Wilson will start.

4. Mike White ($5,400) / Garrett Wilson ($6,000), New York Jets vs. Detroit Lions

Garrett Wilson found himself as chalk yet again last week, despite a road tilt with the Bills in one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. He was an easy fade. However, this week is the time to jump back on the train, as the Jets have a dream matchup with the Lions. Detroit has been playing some great football, but still remain incredibly vulnerable through the air.

Last week the Lions gave up 425 yards and two touchdowns to Kirk Cousins, and a whopping 223 yards receiving to Justin Jefferson (his new career high) on 11 catches. This team cannot defend the pass. In Mike White’s past two starts, he’s thrown 44 and 57 times respectively, and has thrown for 300 yards or more in two of his past three overall. During this time, Garrett Wilson has seen target totals of seven, 15 and eight. He actually held his own last week against a tough Buffalo secondary, catching six of seven targets for 78 yards, and now gets a team allowing the third most DKFP to opposing wideouts. Both White and Wilson are a bit underpriced considering the matchup.

3. Justin Herbert ($7,200) / Keenan Allen ($6,800), Los Angeles Chargers vs. Tennessee Titans

Sunday night it looked like vintage Keenan Allen was back, as Justin Herbert just kept peppering him with targets, while the Dolphins could do almost nothing to stop it. Allen ended up with 12 catches for 92 yards, while Herbert threw for 361 yards. It marked Allen’s second game in a row with 14 targets, which means he’s clearly past his lingering hamstring issue that’s hindered him all season.

Now the Chargers get a dream spot at home in the dome vs. the Titans. Tennessee is one week removed from getting absolutely shredded by Trevor Lawrence, who dropped 367 yards and three touchdowns on its defense, while rushing in another score. Evan Engram caught 11 balls for 162 yards and two touchdowns, while Zay Jones posted another strong game, finishing 8/77/1. With the Chargers fully healthy on offense, Herbert and Allen should have no problem carving up this ravaged Titans secondary. Los Angeles boasts the slate’s fourth-highest team total at 25.25 points.

2. Dak Prescott ($6,200) / CeeDee Lamb ($7,300), Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars

It was clear that the Cowboys took the Texans too lightly last week and it showed, as they needed a last second touchdown to eke out a four point win. I would expect them to be way more crisp this week in a road tilt with the suddenly red hot Jaguars.

Jacksonville still is not good against opposing passing games, sitting 26th in DKFP allowed to quarterbacks and 20th against wide receievers. We know Dallas wants to run the ball as much as possible, but the Jags rank 13th in rush defense DVOA and seventh in yards per carry allowed. Prior to last week, Prescott had thrown two or more touchdowns in five of six games he’s started since returning from his thumb injury. Expect this Cowboys’ offense to get back on track this week in what could be a potential shootout, with both Prescott and Lamb at the forefront.

1. Patrick Mahomes ($8,100) / JuJu Smith-Schuster ($5,800), Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans

Everyone is still under the assumption that you must attack the Texans on the ground, however, what they fail to realize is that they’ve been quite stingy against opposing running games of late. They’ve allowed just 4.1 yards per carry over the past three weeks, which ranks 15th best in the NFL during that time frame. During this stretch, they effectively shut down both Jeff Wilson Jr. and Nick Chubb. The point is, while they’re still attackable on the ground, expect teams to be able to throw on them a bit more as the season comes to a close.

You don’t have to ask the Chiefs to throw, as they rank No. 1 in the NFL in pass rate over expectation, and just waltzed into Denver and put up 34 points. Patrick Mahomes yet again looked a wizard, making highlight reel throws all afternoon en route to 352-yard, three touchdown effort. JuJu Smith-Schuster also got back on track after missing time with his concussion, catching nine of his 11 targets for 74 yards and a touchdown. This week the Chiefs hold the highest implied team total on the main slate at 31.75 points. Mahomes is priced appropriately, but JJSS is a bit underpriced at just $5,800, making this one of the more appealing stacks on the week and the No. 1 on the board for me.
