NFL DFS Week 7: Top Stacks & Team You Should Play Sunday
Week 6 was one of the most profitable weeks of the season for daily fantasy sports and NFL betting, but Week 7 presents a unique challenge as six teams are on bye. Those teams include the Cowboys and the Chargers, who have multiple fantasy-relevant players on their offense.
Needless to say, it will be slim pickings this week on betting sites, betting apps and DFS platforms with only ten afternoon contests. So without further ado, let’s dive into some of the best stacks of the week for DFS.
RELATED: NFL Week 7 Odds & Betting Lines For All Games
Best Week 7 Stacks
Rams QB Matthew Stafford ($7,100) and Rams WR Cooper Kupp ($8,400)
Stafford will face off against his former team in Week 7 as the Rams will host the Lions. While Detroit hasn't allowed a ton of fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this year, this is a game in which Stafford will want to light up the scoreboard.
He's gone over 18.2 points in every game this season and averages 24.2 fantasy points per game. As a result, he is a pretty safe bet to be QB1 this week and Cooper Kupp should be the primary beneficiary of his targets once again.
Kupp has been the No. 1 receiver in fantasy football through six weeks, averaging 27 points per game. He has gone over 30 points in three games this season and no receiver in the league has his upside.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill ($6,400) and Titans WR A.J. Brown ($6,300)
Julio Jones has re-injured his hamstring, which means it could be the A.J. Brown show again this week against Kansas City. The Chiefs have one of the worst secondaries in the NFL and their matchup against the Titans on Sunday has the highest projected points total of Week 7.
Brown has seen 15 targets over the last two games and he figures to get a similar workload again this week. Tannehill and Brown are an intriguing stack in what should be a very high-scoring contest.

Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa ($5,500) and Dolphins WR Jaylen Waddle ($5,600)
Tagovailoa returned to the field in Week 6 after missing the previous three games with a rib injury. He put up some big numbers in that game in London, totaling over 340 yards and throwing two touchdowns. They will return home in Week 7 to take on the Atlanta Falcons, who have one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL.
If you decide to go cheap on QB this week and play Tagovailoa, consider stacking him with Waddle. In the last two games that these two have played together, Waddle has seen 21 targets. While they have yet to connect on a deep shot down the field, Waddle is getting looks in the red zone with two touchdowns last week against the Jaguars.

Over the last two weeks, Antonio Brown has been far and away Tom Brady's favorite receiver. He's seen 21 targets from Brady, scoring a combined 58.7 fantasy points. His price has risen to $6,300, but he is still a screaming value as he is Brady's top target. Don't be surprised if he goes over 100 yards once again in this matchup against the Bears. Brown is averaging over 20 fantasy points per game this season and has already scored four touchdowns in five games.
With Zach Ertz traded to the Cardinals, it’s now or never for Dallas Goedert. He will be the featured tight end for the Eagles and will likely see a bunch of targets between now and the end of the season. Goedert did miss Week 6 due to being on the COVID-19 list, but he is expected to be back in the lineup and has a favorable matchup against the Raiders on Sunday. He is a great play this week if you decide to fade Travis Kelce and Mark Andrews.
