It’s hard to believe that we are roughly a third of the way through the NFL regular season, but here we are. This week I’m looking at three stack plays and talking a few other guys that should find their way into your lineups.

The DailyFantasyNerd FanDuel/DraftKings Cash Picks Week 5Quarterbacks

Andy Dalton (CIN) VS MIA $7,500 FD/$5,900 DK

The Cincinnati Bengals have scored the fifth most amount of points this season, and playing Bengals stacks has faired me well in Cash Games. The Dolphins are ranked 26th against the pass in fantasy, so Dalton is a must play.

Philip Rivers (LAC) VS OAK $8,200 FD/$6,700 DKNFL Fanduel DraftKings Lineup Week 5 (10/7/18)

Philip Rivers is the start of my second stack play this week in a home matchup against the Raiders. The Raiders are ranked 27th on defense this year and are on the road in a divisional game. I like Rivers for a big week.

Aaron Rodgers (GB) @ DET $8,400 FD/$6,300 DK

Aaron Rodgers rounds out my stack play suggestions this week. Admittedly, the Lions have been good against the pass this season, ranked second. So this bet is mainly about Rodgers in a dome, and I believe this stack will pay off.

Running Backs

Melvin Gordon (LAC) VS OAK $8,700 FD/$8,600 DK

Melvin Gordon is part two of my Charger stack play. Oakland is 30th against the run and I expect another big week out of Gordon.

TJ Yeldon (JAX) @ KC $6,500 FD/$5,600 DK

Yeldon has produced in Fournette’s absence and he has a great matchup this weekend. For as good as the Chiefs offense has been, their defense has been equally as poor. Yeldon is averaging 14+ fantasy points per game and Kansas City is 28th against the run this season.

Aaron Jones (GB) @ DET $6,100/$4,300 DKNFL Fanduel DraftKings Lineup Week 5 (10/7/18)

Jones is part two of my Green Bay stack. Jones is coming off of a good week Detroit is ranked 32nd against the run.

Devonta Freeman (ATL) @ PITT $6,800 FD/$6,500 DK

Freeman will make his return from injury this week against the 22nd rush defense. I’m lower on this play than the other three but worth a play depending on how the rest of your lineup shakes out.

Wide Receivers

AJ Green (CIN) VS MIA $8,500 FD/$7,200 DK

This will look familiar if you read my article last week. Green is averaging 16+ fantasy points per game, and again I love this matchup. Green is part two of my Bengals stack.

Tyler Boyd (CIN) VS MIA $6,300 FD/$5,700 DK

Let’s just finish off the Bengals stack here. The Tyler Boyd secret is out, and as long as he continues to produce I’ll continue to buy. Boyd is averaging 15+ points per game. Dalton, Green, and Boyd should be set for another big week.

Davante Adams (GB) @ DET $8,000 FD/$7,600 DK

Adams finishes off my Green Bay stack of Rodgers – Jones – Adams. As I stated earlier, I’m banking on Rodgers and Adams in a dome.

Keenan Allen (LAC) VS OAK $8,100 FD/$7,800 DK

Allen will wrap up my final stack of the week, Rivers – Gordon – Allen. Allen is averaging just 11+ fantasy points per game this season, but I love this matchup to serve as his breakout game to this point.

John Brown (BAL) @ CLE $6,200 FD/ $5,600 DKNFL Fanduel DraftKings Lineup Week 5 (10/7/18)

John Brown is averaging 14+ fantasy points per week and has established himself as the wide receiver to own in Baltimore. This week he’s matched up against the Browns with the 23rd ranked defense against fantasy receivers. He should be in your lineup.

JuJu Smith-Schuster (PITT) VS ATL $8,000 FD/$7,500 DK.

We’ll keep this one short and sweet. JuJu is averaging 15+ points per game, he’s at home, and he’s going against the 25th ranked defense against the pass.

Tight Ends

Zack Ertz (PHI) VS MIN $7,500 FD/$6,500 DK

Ertz and Wentz have an undeniable connection. Zach is coming off of a week where he was targeted 14 times and the Vikings have the 22nd ranked defense against the Pass.


Vance McDonald (PITT) VS ATL $4,600 FD/$3,700 DK

McDonald is averaging 10+ points per game this year but really has established himself as the number one tight end the last two weeks. Atlanta is ranked 25th against the Pass which should bode well for McDonald.


TEN @ BUF $3,900 FD/$4,000 DK

For the third straight week, I’m just betting against Buffalo. It backfired in the land of 1,000 lakes and paid off in the land of cheese. I’ll report back after this week.
