We’re back yet again with our weekly look at the top stack options for the weekend in DFS. Just like any strategy option in DFS, there are multiple ways to grab value from stacking. You can pay up for your stack and find two of the highest-scoring players in all of DFS that week. Sometimes, you can even find two of the highest scorers without paying up and instead finding value in the middle range. And of course, you can win using my favorite strategy — bargain stacks that allow you to find game-winners in the rest of your lineup.

(These stacks are not specific to FanDuel or DraftKings unless signified in the writeup.)

Tom Brady, QB, Dion Lewis, RB, and Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots

The Patriots are still playing for the No. 1 seed in the AFC and that means you can expect an onslaught performance against a Jets team that is playing for nothing with a replacement-level quarterback. The Patriots should have the ball all game and be on the offensive attack. We don’t want to travel too far down narrative street, but as has been noted all over social media, Gronkowski receives a $2 million bonus if he reaches 11 receptions or 116 yards receiving this Sunday. Lewis doesn’t need incentives to take advantage of a situation where he will have game flow working in his favor and little competition as his Patriots backfield mates are still banged up. The Jets have dropped to No. 28 in pass rush and No. 31 in pass coverage overall.
