Bye weeks return for Week 13 with six teams getting time off. There will still be 10 games that make up the main Sunday slate on DraftKings, leaving us with plenty of quarterback-wide receiver stacks to consider. Let’s dive into some of the top ones to target.

The reasoning behind stacking a quarterback with his wide receiver is that both players benefit from each completion, doubling the value of that play for your DraftKings fantasy football lineup.

4. Russell Wilson ($5,700), Courtland Sutton ($5,400), Denver Broncos at Houston Texans

At 6-5, the Broncos have themselves firmly in the playoff hunt. They have won five games in a row, knocking off the Chiefs and the Bills during the streak. Wilson has not put up gaudy numbers, though, throwing for fewer than 200 yards four times during that span. However, he did total eight touchdown passes, while adding another score on the ground. Sutton caught a touchdown in four of those games, giving him a total of eight scores for the season.

This matchup could leave Wilson with one of his better stat lines of the season. The Texans have given up the sixth-most passing yards per game in the league, part of which can be attributed to teams needing to throw a lot against them to try and keep up with their offense. Their 8.95 yards allowed per target to wide receivers is also the sixth-highest mark in the league. Given their cheap salaries, this duo is at least worth considering in tournament play.

3. C.J. Stroud ($8,100), Tank Dell ($7,400), Houston Texans vs. Denver Broncos

Stroud had another strong stat line in a loss to the Jaguars last week. He threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns, while also chipping in 47 rushing yards and a score on the ground. He has four straight games with at least 300 passing yards and he has seven games this season with multiple touchdown passes. With Stroud racking up yards in bunches, Dell has been one of his main beneficiaries. During Stroud’s four-game heater, Dell has caught 25 of 43 targets for 369 yards and five touchdowns.

One of the reasons why the Broncos have been winning lately is because their defense has played much better. Still, Stroud has been one of the more consistent quarterbacks in the league and the Broncos have given up 19 touchdown passes, which is tied for the fifth-most in the league. Look for Stroud and Dell to go off again as the Texans try to improve their playoff chances.

2. Brock Purdy ($6,100), Deebo Samuel ($6,200), San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles

The 49ers didn’t need Purdy to do much in their Week 12 drubbing of the Seahawks. He only attempted 30 passes, leaving him with 209 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Prior to that, he had back-to-back performances of at least 296 passing yards and at least three touchdowns. Despite Purdy’s muted performance last week, Samuel finished the game with seven receptions for 79 yards, while also scoring a rushing touchdown.

This should be a much more competitive game against the Eagles, who have one of the most dominant offenses in the league. The same can’t be said about their defense, which has allowed the fourth-most passing yards per game in the league. Their 181 receptions allowed to wide receivers is the most in the league, while their 17 receiving touchdowns allowed to them is the second-most. Expect Purdy to have more opportunities to stuff the stat sheet this week, with Samuel being one of his more dangerous weapons.

1. Tua Tagovailoa ($7,900), Tyreek Hill ($9,600), Miami Dolphins at Washington Commanders

The Jets have a lot of problems on offense, but their defense has been excellent. Last week, they limited Tagovailoa to 243 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. It was just his second game this season with multiple interceptions. Hill still thrived, though, catching nine of 12 targets for 102 yards and a touchdown. That marked his seventh game of the season with at least 100 receiving yards and a touchdown.

As far as favorable matchups go, it doesn’t get much better than this for Tagovailoa and Hill. Simply put, the Commanders can’t stop the pass. They have allowed the third-most passing yards per game in the league and 18 receiving touchdowns to wide receivers, which is the most in the league. Wide receivers have averaged a whopping 9.89 yards per target against them. This duo will do a number on your budget, but their upside is as high as any possible stack for this slate.
