The Week 14 main slate for NFL DFS contests is loaded with top quarterbacks, which mean stacking options abound everywhere. Every week, we bring you six suggestions for FanDuel and DraftKings contests, three for cash games and three for tournaments. This is a week where at least 12 different stacks are viable, but we’ve tried to keep it to our favorites.
You’ll see some classic stacks below in the form of Aaron Rodgers with Davante Adams and Justin Herbert with Keenan Allen, but there’s also the opportunity to get cute if you want to play a Jaguars quarterback. To each their own, as they say.

Week 14 NFL DFS Picks: Top cash game stacks for DraftKings, FanDuel
QB Ryan Tannehill and WR A.J. Brown, Titans @ Jaguars (FD stack)
Let other people buy into Corey Davis’s big week. Those rarely come around twice in a row.
Instead, we’ll let Brown’s big-play ability carry us to a solid baseline in cash games this week. Tannehill threw four touchdowns the first time these teams played this season, and Brown wasn’t even healthy that day. Expect an explosive point total out of this duo in Week 14.
QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Davante Adams, Packers @ Lions (DK stack)
Every week, there’s one stud quarterback whose pricing doesn’t quite align across the two sites. This week, it’s Rodgers against the lowly Lions defense. He’s the top-priced QB on FD but only the fourth-highest priced on DK. We’ll gladly take that discount.
Adams doesn’t need justifying at this point despite his sky-high price. He’s caught touchdowns in seven straight games. It should be eight after Week 14 is over with.
QB Justin Herbert and WR Keenan Allen, Chargers vs. Falcons (DK stack)
Talk about a get-right game. Coming off a 45-0 blowout loss, Herbert and Allen get to face an Atlanta team that’s allowed the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. Until proven otherwise, it’s best to view that New England game as an aberration because the Falcons can’t limit Herbert in the same ways that Bill Belichick’s defense did.
Allen is a proven DK producer thanks to his high volume and DraftKings’ full-point PPR scoring. That should continue this week against a Falcons secondary that won’t slow Allen down at all.
Week 14 DraftKings, FanDuel Picks: Best stacks for daily fantasy football GPPs/tournaments
QB Mike Glennon and WR DJ Chark, Jaguars vs. Titans (FD/DK stack)
Earlier this season, a Jake Luton-led stack was the key to a high-finishing FanDuel tournament lineup. We’re going back to the well with another Jaguars backup this week.
Glennon has scored more than 14 FD points in both his starts so far, and the Titans just gave up four first-half passing touchdowns to Baker Mayfield, the exclamation point on the fact that Tennessee’s defense can be beaten consistently.
Glennon isn’t Mayfield, no, but he has enough arm talent to put up points in Week 14 and DJ Chark should finally deliver a consistent outing after his production hasn’t matched the targets in Glennon’s first two starts.
QB Kyler Murray and WR DeAndre Hopkins, Cardinals @ Giants (FD/DK stack)
Because of the overall aura of Arizon’s struggles, Murray’s ownership might fall in a week with so many good quarterbacks on the main slate. No, it’s not super bold to pair Murray and Hopkins in any lineup, let alone a tournament one, but we’re hoping to use that to our advantage this week.
Murray is still a dominant fantasy quarterback thanks to his rushing, and he started to feed Hopkins at heavy volume last week with 13 targets. While Glennon is the type of play that gives you a chance to win a tournament if your savings provide studs elsewhere, Murray simply is the stud to win you a tournament on his own.
If you want to do a Murray stack but make it a bit more unique, you could always ride the Dan Arnold wave after the tight end caught two touchdowns in Week 13.
RB J.D. McKissic and DEF Washington at 49ers (DK stack)
This feels a lot safer if Antonio Gibson’s toe injury keeps him limited or out of action, but it can work no matter what. McKissic remains one of Alex Smith’s favorite targets, which is extremely useful for a running back in DK’s ful-point PPR scoring.
As for the Washington Football Team defense, we’re expecting Nick Mullens to be erratic enough to create a few big moments while Chase Young blows things up in the backfield.
