We've reached Week 6, which means the bye weeks are upon us. The Falcons, Saints, 49ers and Jets are all on a bye this week, limiting our pool of players to pick from by a significant amount. Still, there are some fantastic QB-WR stacks out there for daily fantasy sports and NFL betting, and some valuable players under $6,000 that you need to get into your DFS lineups this week.
So without further ado, let's dive into some of the best stacks of the week.

Best Week 6 Stacks
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers ($7,200) and WR Davante Adams ($9,000)
Rodgers has dominated the Bears during his career. In 25 career games against Chicago, he's thrown 55 touchdowns and averaged over 8.4 yards per attempt. With Rodgers playing at an incredibly high level this season, look for him to dominate the Bears again on Sunday.
It's as simple as this for Adams. In his last ten games against the Bears, he's caught eight touchdowns and has exceeded 16.5 DFS points seven times. Rodgers is peppering Adams with targets as he’s seen 45 over the last three weeks.
With first place in the NFC North on the line, expect Adams to have another big game here in Week 6.

Rams QB Matthew Stafford ($6,700) and WR Cooper Kupp ($7,900)
Stafford has been among the most consistent DFS quarterbacks all year. While he doesn’t provide any rushing upside, he has yet to have a game under 18.2 DFS points. He'll face the New York Giants this week, who just allowed over 500 total yards to the Cowboys in Week 5. Stafford should have no problem carving up this defense in Week 6.
Robert Woods had his biggest game of the season in Week 5, but Cooper Kupp was still incredibly productive. He saw ten targets, catching seven of them for 92 yards. Kupp is averaging 25 points per game and due to his target volume, he is one of the safest plays at wide receiver this week. Expect at least 100 yards and possibly a touchdown from him this week against a beat-up Giants’ defense.

Washington Football Team QB Taylor Heinicke ($5,800) and WR Terry McLaurin ($7,100)
This one is simple; Washington will play Kansas City in Week 6. The Chiefs have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and Heinicke has been a pretty good play most weeks. In his four starts, he's gone over 23 points three times, with his worst performance coming against New Orleans last week.
McLaurin is a must-play this week as well after seeing 24 targets over the last two weeks. He’s averaging 80 yards per game and the Chiefs can be gashed through the air. At only $7,100, McLaurin is a clear-cut WR1 this week at a reasonable price.

The Colts haven't yet had a strong positive game script in which they can lean on Jonathan Taylor in the second half. He's yet to have a game with more than 17 carries, but he is still producing. Over the last two weeks, he's totaled over 58 DFS points for the Colts. He's got a great matchup this week against the Texans and should be a clear-cut RB1.
Another player that you must consider putting into your lineup in Week 6 is tight end Hunter Henry. He had his best game of the season in Week 5, catching six of eight targets for 75 yards and a touchdown. It’s clear that he is Mac Jones’ favorite receiver and his target volume has been pretty consistent over the last few weeks. The Patriots will face the Cowboys in Week 6, who have allowed a ton of points to opposing tight ends. At just $3,900, he is a crazy value at the tight end position.
