NFL Week 8 Team Stacks

It really is crazy how fast this season flies by.  We’ve already made it to week eight in the NFL season!  There is still plenty of money to be won on DraftKings and FanDuel so let’s get down to business.  This article will provide four teams that I will be looking to stack on this week’s main slate including a player from the opposing team.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Denver Broncos

The Kansas City Chiefs have not been on the DraftKings and FanDuel main slate contests since week five!  It’s good to have them back in our lives.  The 6-1 Chiefs lead the league in points per game with 37.1, which is a full three points higher than the next team.  Scoring is up in the entire league so far this season, but the Chiefs seem to be one step ahead of the rest.  With such an explosive offense, the pricing across the industry is sure to adjust.  On FanDuel, Patrick Mahomes is the highest priced quarterback by $600, while Travis Kelce is the highest priced tight end by $500.  Kareem Hunt is the third highest priced running back while Tyreek Hill is the sixth highest priced wide receiver.  On DraftKings it’s extremely similar.   Mahomes by $600, Kelce by $1,300, Hill by $100 and Hunt is the fifth highest.  Tyreek Hill is $100 more than Antonio Brown!  What a world.  In their last matchup against the Denver Broncos, the Chiefs had to come from behind to take the victory.  Down 10 points in the fourth quarter with under seven minutes remaining, Mahomes connected on a two-yard touchdown pass to Kelce.  After a defensive stop, Mahomes and company marched down the field as he completed a left-handed pass that broke the internet.  Hunt rushed in a touchdown from four-yards out which concluded the Chiefs comeback and a big day from Hunt.  He finished with 175 total yards and one touchdown.  The Broncos are a very run heavy defense.  They are second in DVOA against the pass and 28th in DVOA against the run.  This sets up for another great Kareem Hunt game.  Tyreek Hill has some strong home/road splits dating back to last season.  In 11 road games, Hill has 65 receptions for 1,175 yards and 12 touchdowns.  In 11 home games, Hill has 51 receptions for 643 yards and two touchdowns.  With that being said, my favorite Chiefs stack is Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce with Emmanuel Sanders bringing it back.

Favorite Stack – Patrick Mahomes, Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce

Bring it Back – Emmanuel Sanders
