Week 4 of the XFL is here, and we’ve broken down the best QB-WR stacks. Stacking quarterbacks and wide receivers can help maximize the potential of your DFS lineup. Star Los Angeles Wildcats receiver Nelson Spruce won’t be available because of a knee injury, but there are other capable wideouts available for use. We broke down the top three options you should continue stacking in Week 4 here.

3) Jordan Ta’amu ($9,500)/De’Mornay Pierson-El ($9,500), St. Louis BattleHawks

Ta’amu is second in the XFL in total passing yards (612), despite his Week 3 struggles against the New York Guardians. The 22-year-old was 12-of-18 for 119 yards while St. Louis’ running backs racked up 33 carries. Ta’amu has been an accurate passer with a high ceiling because of his mobility. He has connected on 16 of his 18 passes to Pierson-El this year. Pierson-El caught all three of his targets in Week 4 and tallied 25 receiving yards. Look for these two to bounce back against the Seattle Dragons in Week 4. Ta’amu will carry most of the load, but Pierson-El should be more serviceable than he was in his last outing.

2) Landry Jones ($9,800)/Donald Parham ($9,900), Dallas Renegades

Jones is still building on-field chemistry with his teammates after missing significant time with a knee injury over the offseason, but it’s clear that Parham has become one of his favorite targets. Jones has targeted the 6’8” tight end 17 times in the two starts he’s made this season, and Parham has racked up 177 receiving yards and three touchdowns during that span. This tandem and running back Cameron Artis-Payne will be the focal points of Dallas’ offense moving forward. Jones throwing the ball at least 40 times per contest bodes well for Parham.

1) P.J. Walker ($12,000)/Cam Phillips ($11,700), Houston Roughnecks

Walker and Phillips have remained the XFL’s most dominant duo on the offensive end. The two have connected on a league-leading seven touchdown passes through three weeks and are both averaging the most DKFP per contest at their respective positions. Phillips hasn’t thrown for fewer than three touchdowns in a game this year and leads the XFL with 748 passing yards and has been able to establish himself as a scrambling threat as well when necessary. He recorded his first rushing touchdown of the season last weekend. Phillips leads the XFL in receiving yards (324) and caught three touchdown passes in Weeks 2 and 3. You’ll have to spend money for this stack, but it should be worth the price against a Dallas Renegades team that’s the worst rated defensive team on DraftKings in Week 4’s four-game slate.
