Although there are only two teams on a bye for Week 14, injuries to the quarterback position continue to pop up across the league. The most recent of which saw Trevor Lawrence (ankle) go down. As we try to make sense of it all, here are some of the top quarterback-wide receiver stacks to consider for the week.

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. Justin Fields ($6,800), DJ Moore ($6,500), Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions

After missing four straight games with an injury, Fields has been aggressive on the ground since making his return. Over his last two games, he has turned 30 total carries into 163 yards. That included a Week 11 matchup with the Lions in which he rushed 18 times for 104 yards. While his passing contributions have remained muted, it has not negatively impacted Moore. Over the last two games, he has caught 18 of 22 targets for 210 yards and a touchdown.

The Lions have had problems slowing down quarterbacks all season. Not only have they given up 20 touchdown passes, but they have allowed the most rushing yards to the position in the league. Their 14 touchdowns allowed to wide receivers are tied for the third-most in the league. Fields and Moore are in a favorable position to provide value at their reasonable salaries.

3. Jared Goff ($6,400), Amon-Ra St. Brown ($8,200), Detroit Lions at Chicago Bears

Although Goff only threw for 213 yards versus the Saints in Week 13, he finished with two touchdown passes. That marked his fourth straight game with multiple scores through the air. St. Brown recorded another touchdown in Week 13, giving him three scores over his last four games. He enters most weeks with a high floor, given that he is averaging 10.4 targets per game.

The Bears are a favorable matchup for Goff, considering that they have allowed the third-most passing touchdowns in the league. He has played them five times since joining the Lions, throwing a total of 10 touchdown passes. With St. Brown being by far the best wide receiver on the Lions, he is the clear top option to stack with Goff for those looking to exploit this matchup.

2. Justin Herbert ($7,500), Keenan Allen ($8,600), Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos

It hasn’t been the best of seasons for Herbert, who has thrown for fewer than 220 yards in three of his last five games. Those three games came against the Jets, Ravens and Patriots, each of which have strong defenses. Against those three teams, Herbert threw one total touchdown pass. Allen has not been slowed down, though, recording 48 catches for 532 yards and three touchdowns during that five-game span.

This is a great bounce-back spot for Herbert. The Broncos have given up the ninth-most passing yards per game in the league while their 7.71 yards per pass attempt allowed is the fourth-highest mark. With Allen likely to receive plenty of targets again, this duo has the potential for a productive afternoon.

1. Josh Allen ($8,300), Stefon Diggs ($8,800), Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs

Before their bye in Week 13, the Bills had a difficult matchup against the Eagles. They lost, but Allen had a stellar fantasy game. He finished with 339 passing yards and two touchdowns while rushing nine times for 81 yards and two additional scores. That marked his eighth game of the season with multiple touchdown passes and he has already tied his career high with nine rushing touchdowns.

With the Bills playing the Chiefs and Cowboys the next two weeks, their schedule isn’t going to get any easier. If they are going to make a push for a playoff spot, Allen and Diggs will have to get them there. Diggs already has 121 targets, putting him on pace to receive at least 150 targets for the fourth straight season. This duo has arguably the highest floor of any quarterback-wide receiver duo for the slate.
