Check where to bet to find other options for DFS and sportsbooks in your state.


Stack 1:

Patrick Mahomes- Chiefs: $7,800

JuJu Smith-Schuster- Chiefs: $5,700

Marquez Valdes-Scantling- Chiefs: $4,800

Kyler Murray- Cardinals: $7,500

Marquise Brown- Cardinals: $5,800

Rondale Moore- Cardinals: $4,600

(6 Players: $36,200 committed)

The Chiefs/Cardinals game in Week #1 should be the featured contest in any DFS lineup. Mahomes vs. Kyler with explosive weapons on both sides of the ball and two teams playing at a fast pace–this one won’t be a pitcher’s duel. You will have to get creative with cheaper options, but a lineup with this stack is possible.

Stack 2:

Dak Prescott- Cowboys: $7,300

CeeDee Lamb- Cowboys: $6,600

Tony Pollard- Cowboys: $4,900

Tom Brady- Buccaneers: $7,400

Julio Jones- Buccaneers: $5,400

Russell Gage- Buccaneers: $5,400

(6 Players: $37,000 committed)

The Buccaneers/Cowboys tilt could be a lot of fun. The Cowboys operating in the post-Amari Cooper era should feature the likes of CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard. On the other side, Chris Godwin is still fighting his way back from injury. I would be stunned if he suits up in this one. Godwins’ absence should provide ample opportunity for both Julio Jones and Russell Gage to find success in their Bucs’ debut.

Stack 3:

Justin Herbert- Chargers: $7,900 

Mike Williams- Chargers: $5,800

Joshua Palmer- Chargers: $4,600

Derek Carr- Raiders: $6,800

Darren Waller- Raiders: $5,900

(5 Players: $31,000 committed)

The Chargers/Raiders can turn into one of the higher-scoring affairs of the weekend. The super stack option will require some creativity with some cheaper options i.e. Rhamondre Stevenson and Kadarius Toney, but feasible.

Stack 4:

Jalen Hurts- Eagles: $7,100

A.J. Brown- Eagles: $6,000

DeVonta Smith- Eagles: $5,200

Jared Goff- Lions: $6,400

D’Andre Swift- Lions: $6,100

T.J. Hockenson- Lions: $5,200

(6 Players: $36,000 committed)

The Eagles/Lions match-up has a ton of intrigue between the two teams, with aspirations for improvement in 2022. Again, you’ll have to get a bit creative with some cheaper options to make it work, but you can set up a Mega Stack here with both quarterbacks and their top pass-catching options.

Stack 5:

Lamar Jackson- Ravens: $7,400

Rashod Bateman- Ravens: $5,500

Mark Andrews- Ravens: $6,000

Elijah Moore- Jets: $5,200

(4 Players: $24,100 committed)

I am piling on here at this point, but I am All-In on the Ravens for the 2022 season, which includes Week #1. If the Ravens are feasting through the air, it will be the trio of Jackson, Bateman, and Andrews. I anticipate plenty of garbage time targets for Elijah Moore. 


Lamar Jackson- Ravens: $7,400 at Jets

Jalen Hurts- Eagles: $7,100 at Lions

Trey Lance- 49ers: $6,900 at Bears

Kyler Murray- Cardinals: $7,500 vs. Chiefs

Justin Herbert- Chargers: $7,900 at Raiders

Patrick Mahomes- Chiefs: $7,800 at Cardinals

Tom Brady- Buccaneers: $7,400 at Cowboys

Joe Burrow- Bengals: $7,500 vs. Steelers

Dak Prescott- Cowboys: $7,300 vs. Buccaneers

Matt Ryan- Colts: $6,700 at Texans

Lamar Jackson remains the best buy relative to the cost of the position. Jackson should smash in the opener against a weak Jets defense. Jalen Hurts brings a loaded receiving group into Week #1. Hurts should have no problem finding success as a passer and a runner in this one. Week #1 will be the last time Trey Lance is under the 7K mark–take advantage of his $6,900 price tag. 


Rhamondre Stevenson- Patriots $4,500 at Dolphins

D’Andre Swift- Lions: $6,100 vs. Eagles

Travis Etienne- Jaguars: $5,200 at Commanders

Saquon Barkley- Giants: $6,100 at Titans

Dalvin Cook- Vikings: $6,400 vs. Packers

Aaron Jones- Packers: $6,300 at Vikings

Alvin Kamara- Saints: $6,500 at Falcons

Nick Chubb- Browns: $6,000 at Panthers

Leonard Fournette- Buccaneers: $6,500 at Cowboys

Kenneth Gainwell- Eagles: $4,600 at Lions

Rhamondre Stevenson is the smash play of all smash plays. $4,500 for the most valuable Patriots’ back in a PPR format is ridiculous. I will continue to pound the table for D’Andre Swift. He is underrated in all DFS formats. Travis Etienne will be utilized as a runner and a receiver out of the backfield to exploit a Commander’s defense. 


A.J. Brown- Eagles: $6,000 at Lions

Mike Williams- Chargers: $5,800 vs. Raiders

Ja’Marr Chase- Bengals: $6,700 vs. Steelers

Diontae Johnson- Steelers: $5,400 at Bengals

Tee Higgins- Bengals: $6,200 vs. Steelers

Elijah Moore- Jets: $5,200 at Ravens

DeVonta Smith- Eagles: $5,200 at Lions

Kadarius Toney- Giants: $4,500 at Titans

Darnell Mooney- Bears: $5,500 vs. 49ers

Brandon Aiyuk- 49ers: $5,000 at Bears

The Jalen Hurts/A.J. Brown stack is my favorite heading into Week #1. Hurts and Brown have shown chemistry on and off the field leading up to the season. Mike Williams is the top receiver for the Los Angeles Chargers, and several DFS sites have not adjusted. Take advantage of the bargain while you still can. I like the prices on Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins in a match-up where they should batter the Steelers secondary.


George Kittle- 49ers: $5,600 at Bears

Pat Freiermuth- Steelers: $4,600 at Bengals

Darren Waller- Raiders: $5,900 at Chargers

T.J. Hockenson- Lions: $5,200 vs. Eagles

Daniel Bellinger- Giants: $4,000 at Titans

George Kittle is an absolute steal at $5,600. The last in the line of elite TE is a savvy play in Week #1. Pat Freiermuth should provide correlation in a Bengals/Steelers game that could be higher scoring than anticipated. Darren Waller is being utilized more in the red zone than ever before. Waller is one of my favorite plays at any position for Week #1.
