As we creep toward the halfway point of the season, we’re starting to see how teams can perform against teams with relatively equal talent. Week Six provides many high-scoring games that make stacks even more important to catch positive correlations within your lineups. So let’s not waste another minute. Here are four top stacking options on this Saturday’s Main Slate on DraftKings.
C.J. Stroud ($9,200) – Marvin Harrison Jr. ($7,400) – Emeka Egbuka ($6,700)
I call this the scorched earth play of the week because that’s what you expect them to do if you’re paying this much of a premium on your stack. I think it’s well in play, though. If Jaxon Smith-Njigba is out this week (as of writing this, he’s considered a true game-time decision), then you’re looking at a stud QB and over 50% of the team’s expected targets consolidated in three players. Michigan State’s defense is 106th in the country, allowing 275 yards per game through the air. The Buckeyes are uniquely positioned with the skill and weapons to take advantage of this defense in that way fully. If TreVeyon Henderson is banged up, this is an easy way to ease him back into the offense without relying fully on Miyan Williams. It’s pricey and makes your remaining lineup stocked with some peripheral options, but this should be a priority consideration for Saturday’s slate.
