Best Week 15 NFL DFS Stack Picks on FanDuel

Ben Roethlisberger/Antonio Brown/JuJu Smith-Schuster vs. NE ($8.0k, $9.3k and $6.7k FanDuel) – Cash/GPP
The Steelers will be fired up ahead of a battle for first place in the AFC. Unlike in past years, they have a tremendous on-field advantage over the Patriots. New England’s secondary was horrendous early on and regressed last week in a matchup against Miami’s underwhelming offense. Now, beleaguered CB Malcolm Butler will have to guard the league’s best receiver and MVP candidate Antonio Brown, who is almost a lock for 100-plus yards and/or a TD in a potential shootout. If Bill Belichick rolls coverage toward Brown, JuJu Smith-Schuster could make some big plays in his return from suspension. Stacking both WRs with Ben Roethlisberger could pay off big.

Aaron Rodgers/Jordy Nelson @ CAR ($8.5k and $7.2k FanDuel) – GPP
Left for dead with Brett Hundley under center over the past couple of weeks, Jordy Nelson could reemerge as a truly elite receiver with his buddy Aaron Rodgers active once again. Nelson and Rodgers have such chemistry that it borders on telekinesis. That rapport should allow them to beat the Panthers’ aggressive coverage this Sunday. Randall Cobb ($5.7k) is another intriguing Packers receiver to consider pairing with Rodgers back under center. It’s worth noting Carolina’s secondary has been most vulnerable against slot receivers. Without getting any sort of discount, the return of Rodgers should be relatively low owned and could pay off greatly in a potential shootout.

Nick Foles/Zach Ertz @ NYG ($6.0k and $7.9k FanDuel) – Cash
Nick Foles offers tremendous value as a capable QB now helming one of the best offenses in the NFL. While he can’t create plays in the same fashion as Carson Wentz, Foles is still relatively accurate. Plus, he should improve after getting a week of reps with the first team. The Giants’ struggling defense has been passable against WRs all year while giving up the most FPPG to opposing TEs and allowing 11 scores to the position. Therefore, Zach Ertz is clearly an appealing option as he returns from a concussion in this plus matchup.

Mark Ingram/Saints D/ST vs. NYJ ($8.3k and $4.6k FanDuel) – Cash/GPP
The Jets have been surprisingly competent on offense this year but still give up the 10th-most FPPG to opposing defenses. With Josh McCown (hand) done for the year, second-year man Bryce Petty will take over in a tough spot on the road against the Saints’ much-improved secondary. Led by rookie CB Marshon Lattimore, New Orleans ranks fourth in passing DVOA pass defense. And the Saints D/ST averages 10.3 FD PPG at home this season. Even though Alvin Kamara (concussion) is expected to be active this week, Mark Ingram is the goal-line back for this elite offense. He’s been extremely reliable in terms of finishing drives that reach the opponent’s 5-yard line or deeper.

Latavius Murray/Vikings D/ST vs. CIN ($6.2k and $4.8k FanDuel) – GPP
This stack should fly under the radar given the fact that Latavius Murray only managed 20 YFS on 11 touches last week. Plus, Minnesota’s defense has given up 63 points over the last three weeks. Yet the Vikings have one of the most talented defenses in the league, match up well against Cincinnati with CB Xavier Rhodes capable of containing A.J. Green, and are bound to see positive regression in terms of turnovers at some point. Turning again to the Vikings’ backfield, the Bengals’ defense collapsed with Vontaze Burfict (neck) out. Cincinnati now ranks 32nd in non-adjusted run defense after coughing up 147 yards and two scores to Jordan Howard last week. Murray is capable of hitting the hole and finishing drives in similar fashion if the Bengals’ front seven continues to lose the battle in the trenches.

Robbie Gould/49ers D/ST vs. TEN ($4.5k, $4.3k FanDuel) – GPP
Robbie Gould remains one of the most reliable kickers in the NFL. And he’s become a fantastic value now that Jimmy Garoppolo is consistently moving the ball. He’s worth a look in any format and can be paired with the 49ers D/ST as cheap options. This is a plus draw at home against the struggling Titans. Tennessee managed just seven points with Marcus Mariota (knee) hobbling around in yet another poor performance last Sunday.
