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 into Week 6 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 DFS contest. Keep in mind that players from both PIT and GB, who are on their bye will be missing from the slate.

Best DraftKings NFL DFS Stacks at QB-WR for Week 6
Kirk Cousins ($7,100) and Jordan Addison ($5,700) vs. Bears | NFL DFS Picks
This will likely be one of the more popular stacks of the week with Justin Jefferson (hamstring) placed on injured reserve –– putting over 50 targets across five games up-for-grabs for other Vikings’ pass-catchers. Although it’s been alluded to that Minnesota prefers KJ Osborn ($4,400) as WR1 due to his overall experience, Jordan Addison’s upside and talent exceed his in every way. Of, course TJ Hockenson ($6,600) figures to become the go-to target and hog the majority of the targets but Addison’s big-play ability will garner plenty of opportunities.
Nobody has attempted more passes than Cousins this season and that will likely increase as the weeks go by because the game scripts would become even more negative without Jefferson out there bailing the offense out. Entering Week 6, Chicago fielded the second-worst defense in the league (19.3% defensive DVOA) and allowed the second-most passing yards per game (286.0). If Minnesota’s defense can’t contain D.J. Moore and Justin Fields, this game could very easily turn into a shootout.

Matthew Stafford ($6,100) and Cooper Kupp ($9,000) vs. Cardinals | NFL DFS Picks
He’s back! Cooper Kupp returned to the lineup last week and unsurprisingly picked up from right where he left off –– hauling in 8-of-12 targets for 118 yards against the Eagles. He led the team in receptions, targets and receiving yards. Many worried about how Kupp’s role would mesh with Puka Nacua‘s ($8,000), who found the endzone, but it seemed like Matthew Stafford spread the ball around well and it may not be as big of an issue as initially expected.
Much like Cousins, Stafford throws the ball a lot. He attempted only one fewer pass (203) than Cousins entering Week 6 and should see that number possibly even increase more now with his top receiver and target hog back in the offense. The Rams have been a bit up-and-down in terms of game script but the defense has been the primary issue through five weeks –– ranking 27th in defensive DVOA (7.5%). In a classic NFC West clash against an unexpectedly competitive Cardinals squad, I’m fully expecting to see Stafford throw the ball at least 40 times here and will reap the rewards of Kupp being on the receiving end of a lot of those.
Gardner Minshew ($5,000) and Michael Pittman Jr. ($6,300) vs. Jaguars | NFL DFS Picks
Yup, I’m buying into the revenge game narrative. It’s Minshew Mania! With Anthony Richardson (shoulder) placed on injured reserve, Gardner Minshew is now the starter in Indianapolis for at least the next four games –– something that may be more fantasy-positive for the Colts’ pass-catchers moving forward. Richardson was ballin’ when he was playing but he did the most damage with his legs and although both Michael Pittman Jr. and Josh Downs ($4,100) have solidified themselves as WR1 and WR2, their roles were even bigger and more productive in limited action with Minshew behind center. In Week 3 against the Ravens, Minshew targeted Pittman Jr. and Downs 11 and 12 times, respectively, and that trend should absolutely continue against the Jaguars, whose primary weakness has been their secondary so far –– allowing the sixth-most passing yards per game (262.4) thus far.
Overall, the Jaguars rank 10th in defensive DVOA (-6.9%) and their pass rush will likely give Minshew some issues at times. Nonetheless, these AFC South matchups have been competitive so far this season and I’m expecting the Colts’ offense to look rejuvenated and confident –– especially with Jonathan Taylor ($6,600) coming back into his full-time role soon. Stacking both Pittman Jr. and Downs could prove beneficial too, as they are quite literally the only productive wide receivers on the roster at the moment.
