When it comes to successful DraftKings NFL DFS picks, using the top QB-WR stacks on a given slate can be very beneficial for the potential success of your lineup. For example, every time your top quarterback completes a pass to his top wide receiver, and you stacked those two in your DFS lineup, boom! You’re getting double the fantasy football value!
So, let’s dive right into Week 3 of the NFL season and discuss which QB-WR stacks and DraftKings NFL DFS picks are worth rostering for this week’s Fantasy Football Millionaire contest.

Best DraftKings NFL DFS Stacks at QB-WR for Week 3
Kirk Cousins ($6,900) and Justin Jefferson ($9,300) vs. Chargers | NFL DFS Picks
Neither of these guys have cheap salaries but they will easily be the most rostered Week 3 DraftKings DFS stack in the projected highest-scoring game of the week against the Chargers. Kirk Cousins is tied for the most passing touchdowns and Justin Jefferson leads the league in receiving yards — seems pretty simple to me. Jefferson hasn’t found the endzone yet but luckily, the Chargers rank last in defensive DVOA (36.4%) and third in offensive DVOA (21.7%), so he’ll be cookin’ their secondary while his own gets cooked, so the script should be even throughout, barring epic collapses from two of the most known teams to collapse.
Like I said, this is going to be the most popular game to stack, especially with Justin Herbert ($7,500)and Keenan Allen ($7,600) on the other side of the ball. I’d suggest rostering Jordan Addison ($5,500), too, who’s caught a touchdown in back-to-back games.
Underdog Fantasy is a new type of DFS that combines the fun of season-long drafts with daily fantasy sports. Aside from their fun, addictive draft mode, Underdog Fantasy also has pick’em player props for many different sports and athletes!
Tua Tagovailoa ($7,000) and Tyreek Hill ($9,000) vs. Broncos | NFL DFS Picks
It’s hard to ignore the Dolphins’ stackable talent on this week’s slate against a Broncos defense that has really struggled, ranking 30th in defensive DVOA (21.6%) through two games (and that’s with facing Jimmy Garoppolo and Sam Howell). Now, they’re facing an actual NFL offense that will likely light them up all game long, especially if they can’t pressure Tua Tagovailoa, who’s looked very much improved through the first two games. Stacking him with Tyreek Hill is a no-brainer every week but with Jaylen Waddle ($7,500; concussion) in concussion protocol, he’s even more enticing because Tua will force it to him even more than usual. Hill already has 24 targets this season.
Every game involving Miami will likely be high-scoring because Hill is unguardable at times, which is why this stack is quite expensive. There’s a reason they’re so expensive this week and it’s because they’re going to score a ton of points. Maybe Russell Wilson and the offense can make it a competitive game, too, which will only make Tua throw it Hill’s way more.
C.J. Stroud ($5,300) and Nico Collins ($5,300) vs. Jaguars | NFL DFS Picks
Since I went expensive with my first suggestions, let’s talk about a value stack. C.J. Stroud and Nico Collins produced well last week, scoring 25.46 and 30.6 FPTS, respectively, and should be able to do the same against a Jaguars defense that ranks eighth, just one place better than the Colts in terms of defensive DVOA (-11.3%). Aside from Anthony Richardson’s rushing ability, Stroud has arguably played the best football of the rookie quarterbacks thus far and his team is always playing from behind.
The Jaguars have looked solid but not as great as many expected, and this will be a divisional game where they’ll be hungry for a home win. I’m not expecting this to turn into a shootout but Stroud showcased that he can air it out if needed, particularly to Collins. He’s attempted at least 40 passes in his first two career games and targeted Collins 20 times — it’s clear he’s the WR1 in this offense and the running game has not looked good enough thus far. One thing to note: Stroud has been limited in practice this week with a shoulder injury but hasn’t had any reported setbacks, so he should be good to go.
