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 9 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 DEN, DET, JAX and SF are on their bye and will be missing from the slate.

Best DraftKings NFL DFS Stacks at QB-WR for Week 9
Jalen Hurts ($8,000) and A.J. Brown ($8,600) vs. Cowboys | NFL DFS Picks
Why not follow the rest of the DFS crowd and stack Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown because of their pure fantasy dominance the last few weeks? Neither Hurts nor Brown has posted fewer than 21 DKFP since Week 3 while Brown hasn’t finished with fewer than 127 yards receiving in that span.
In what could be the game of the week, Brown and Hurts will almost certainly have to put on a show yet again against such a consistently good Cowboys defense. Dallas has allowed the second-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers thus far (177.1), making this a less-than-ideal matchup for Brown but he feels almost matchup-proof given how dominant this stretch has been. His stretch is going to end sooner or later but the chances of it happening in a game where the Eagles are expected to be throwing a ton don’t seem high at all.
Dak Prescott ($6,500) and CeeDee Lamb ($8,200) vs. Eagles | NFL DFS Picks
Of course, we have to include the playmakers on the other sideline in this Cowboys-Eagles matchup, and that starts with Dak Prescott and CeeDee Lamb. While Lamb hasn’t been dominant for nearly as long as Brown, he’s totaled over 117 receiving yards in each of his last two games and has posted single-digit fantasy points just once in seven games. Prescott, on the other hand, has thrown a touchdown in six of his last starts and is coming off of a strong four-touchdown day in Week 8 against the Rams.
Overall, Dallas’ top offensive duo hasn’t been nearly as consistent as Philadelphia’s but its matchup is much more enticing. While the Cowboys are expected to cause chaos on defense, that’s not the case with the Eagles as they’ve allowed the most receptions (136), third-most receiving yards (1,537) and second-most receiving touchdowns (12) to opposing wide receivers this season. As long as we don’t get the turnover-prone version of Prescott, Dallas should have very few issues moving the ball down the field through the air and hopefully into Lamb’s hands for another monster fantasy performance.
Bryce Young ($5,100) and Adam Thielen ($7,500) vs. Colts | NFL DFS Picks
Bryce Young has yet to have a big game in his NFL career but it’s apparent that he’s getting better as the season progresses and his WR1, Adam Thielen, has made that process a whole lot easier. Thielen currently ranks sixth in receptions (57) and 11th in targets (70) in the entire league and has proved to be Young’s security blanket in nearly every situation –– totaling at least 11 targets in four of the last five games.
As I mentioned, Young has yet to produce a solid fantasy outing with his top performance coming in Week 5 against the Lions where he finished with 247 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions for 20.28 DKFP. Nonetheless, this week could be the week, folks. The Colts have been involved in some high-scoring affairs over the last few weeks and on the season have allowed the seventh-most receiving yards to opposing receivers (1,387). More good news? Yup! They’ve allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (156.2) this season, making this the spot for Young to finally put together a clean and viable fantasy performance.
