One of the best ways to win in fantasy football and DFS slates is by stacking players, whether that is a pair of teammates or a game stack that includes players on both sides of the ball. Each week in this space, we will highlight some of the best stack options of the week for DFS players.

Philadelphia Eagles (vs. Detroit)

Nelson Agholor, WR; Zach Ertz, TE

The Eagles receiving core is severely banged up, and Agholor and Ertz will continue to benefit this week. DeSean Jackson has already been ruled out, and Alshon Jeffery was not able to get in any practice time in this week, which likely means he is out as well. In Week 2, we saw how much Jackson and Jeffery being out profited Agholor and Ertz, with them seeing a combined 27 targets. Eachhad 8 catches and were the focal point of the offense with the running game still struggling to get going. I see a similar gamescript here with the Eagles having to rely on their passing game, which means a healthy target share against for Agholor and Ertz. Ertz has seen elite opportunity with 181 air yards, the most among all tight ends. Agholor will benefit this week from his primary slot position (81% of snaps) and should avoid Darius Slay when he does.
