NFL DFS: Best Stacks for DraftKings Week 7 Main Slate

For those that have been reading my weekly NFL DFS article, I want to thank you for taking the time to view my content. And for those that are new here, I’ll explain how this article is going to be organized. Each week, I list my favorite stacks to target on DraftKings’ main slate for NFL DFS. Stacking is when you pair a quarterback with his pass-catchers or running back to get the most correlation possible in your lineups. Along with my favorite stacks, I will proceed to list my favorite bring-back options from the opposing team. It has been shown that having a player on the opposite team as your stack can be beneficial as it adds even more correlation. A bring-back player could be any position that isn’t a quarterback or a defense, so the possibilities are bountiful. If you ever need any aid on creating lineups or anything fantasy football related, you can reach me @skyler_carlin on Twitter. With all of that now bouncing around in your head, here are my favorite stacks and bring-back options in Week 7.

Washington Football Team vs. Green Bay Packers Player Props (10/24/21)

The Packers are streaking to a 5-1 start as Aaron Rodgers turns in another tremendous statistical season. With the Cardinals on the horizon on Thursday night, this is a critical tune-up game to get ready to face the last undefeated team in the NFL. Washington shouldn’t be overlooked, but with its offensive injuries piling up and a defense that has severely underperformed this season, this should be a comfortable win for the Packers if they play to their strengths. There are plenty of great prop bets available for this game, and in this article, we’ll take a look at the best player props out there in this matchup.

Chicago Bears vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Player Props (10/24/21)

The Buccaneers host the Bears and are one of the biggest favorites of the week, with about a 12-point line favoring Tampa Bay. However, I believe this will be a lower-scoring, tighter game, and I’m leaning towards Chicago against the spread. In addition, there are tons of great prop bets available, and there seems to be some fantastic value in this game betting on player props. Let’s take a look at what’s out there.

Additionally, Brady provides a leverage opportunity away from the chalky Leonard Fournette.

Green Bay Packers v. Washington: Behind Enemy Lines

The Green Bay Packers have won their last five games and are now back at home to take on a 2-4 Washington Football team who has lost back-to-back games. In terms of points per game allowed, this was a Washington defense that was one of the best in football last season. However, in 2021, they’ve surprisingly been the worst in football, even with a stout defensive front. The offense, led by Taylor Heinicke, ranks in the bottom half of the league in many key statistical categories.

Green Bay Packers v. Washington: Final Thoughts

Before the 5-1 Green Bay Packers take on the 2-4 Washington Football Team at home, I have my final thoughts — or basically a brain dump — on the upcoming matchup. – This could be a big day for Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams as they go up against a Washington secondary that ranks 28th by DVOA and a unit that has given up the most passing yards per game this season with 309.5.

Eagles beat writers make their predictions for the Raiders game in Week 7

The Philadelphia Eagles will play Sunday on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders. Here are the game predictions from the Eagles beat writers for Week 7. Jeff McLaneThe 2-4 Eagles aren’t as bad as their record suggests, or even as bad as they have looked at times. I truly believe that. The stat nerds do, as well. Football Outsiders have the Eagles ranked 18th, according to their defense-adjusted value over average (DVOA) system. Pro Football Focus has them 16th, according to the nebulous numbers system they use. I just use my eyes and look at their schedule through six games (13th-hardest, per FO) and their remaining schedule (30th easiest) and think it’s got to get better for the Birds.
