Having a slate with only four games can be tricky. You have to pick your spots by targeting the games you want a hand in and focusing on players with a high volume of targets or touches. It doesn’t have to just be quarterbacks and wide receivers, though.
If you have a good understanding of how a game is going to go you could go with a short stack or a big stack. You just better bring that syrup and it better be boysenberry. Let’s get after it.

Russel Wilson (1.35X) DK Metcalf (1.4X) Tyler Lockett (1.15X)
As Kyle Schroeder mentioned in his single-game preview for the Seahawks and Packers, the Seahawks are no longer the run-first team that they once were. They started the season off that way behind the play of Chris Carson, but now, they are left relying on a clubhouse guy in Marshawn Lynch and a rookie in Travis Homer.
Russell Wilson has had to sling the ball a bit more this season attempting 30 passes in 10 games including the playoffs. Given how much he has had to throw and the success Seattle has had through the air, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett can and should see double-digit targets in this game.
Metcalf introduced himself to the world last week on the back of a couple of stellar grabs and finished with 7/160/1. He is averaging over 10 targets in his last two games and the Seahawks would be foolish to not keep that rolling. Lockett has also steadily seen targets in this offense averaging just under eight per game in the last month and leads the team with 110 on the season. If Wilson throws for 3 touchdowns there is a good chance both receivers find themselves with one of them.
Lamar Jackson (1X) Mark Andrews (1.1X) Mark Ingram II (1.4X) Gus Edwards (1.7X)
If you read my single-game preview for this game, you know that my script is for the Ravens to get up early by running the ball and targeting their tight ends in between the numbers. The finishing blow would be to grind out the clock by leaning on their backs and the legs of Lamar Jackson.
I am personally guaranteeing Jackson to link up with Mark Andrews for at least 6/70/1 and I also take no responsibility if that doesn’t happen. Andrews leads the Ravens in targets, receptions, yards receiving and touchdowns. I think we will see more of the same here despite Andrews’ questionable tag after Thursday.
Pay attention to Mark Ingram’s injury because he will be the one to deliver the knockout blow if he manages to get the start. Both he and Gus Edwards have favorable multipliers for a team that leads the league in yards rushing per game by over 60 yards to the second-ranked 49ers.
Pat Mahomes (1.25X) Tyreek Hill (1X)
Legend has it that the Mahomes and Hill stack helped DFS players profit more in the 2018-2019 season than all of the Fortune 500 companies combined. This year hasn’t been nearly as prolific for the duo that seemed to have been made for each other, but, that coupled with their lower multipliers could scare some people away.
The matchup with the Texans is fruitful and could push some people in their bandwagon but I think the ownership of these two together won’t nearly be as high as the other stacks I mentioned. In the week-six battle against Houston, Hill put up 5/80/2 on 10 targets. The Houston secondary has only gotten worse since then allowing the fourth-most yards receiving and touchdowns this season. I like this as a contrarian stack.
In what world is a Mahomes/Hill stack contrarian? 2020 just keeps getting weirder.
