NFL DFS: Stacks for Wild Card Weekend on DK

The regular season is no more, but that doesn’t mean that we aren’t still throwing in some lineups on DraftKings this weekend. I’m going to go through each game and pick one stack that has me intrigued for this weekend. I think that there are a ton of viable stack combinations this weekend from a game theory perspective that makes sense but there may be a chalky one or two mixed in as well.

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans

Spread: Houston -1 Total: 48 Vegas has this game with the highest total of all four. It’s clearing the rest of the slate by five points at the time of this writing. This is projected to be the closest game of the slate as well, which should lead to more passing. It may be pretty obvious, but Andrew Luck ($6,400) to T.Y. Hilton ($7,800) makes a ton of sense. As far as flex options go, I’d imagine Hilton will be somewhere around the third highest owned guy behind Ezekiel Elliott and DeAndre Hopkins. But, the writing is on the wall for a big game from Hilton. He’s scored just over 44 PPR points in his two games against Houston so far this year. That’s without a TD in his box score. In addition to that, Houston is the best team to target on the slate because of their propensity to allow explosive plays through the air.
