Building a stack is a common strategy to use while constructing daily (DFS) lineups. It’s an absolute must in guaranteed prize pool (GPP) tournaments, as the correlation scoring is crucial to finishing top of the leaderboard. However, it’s becoming more and more viable as a cash game strategy as well. As DFS grows so much more every season, it’s getting harder and harder to create an edge over the field. Identifying players, games or teams to stack that have nice floors is a great way to create an advantage in cash contests. Let’s take a look at stacking opportunities for this week’s main slate:
Week in Review
Overall, last week went very well. Granted, the Chiefs players left much to be desired in terms of fantasy output. Patrick Mahomes didn’t have to do too much against the Raiders to secure a blowout victory. He managed to tally two total touchdowns but was below 200 yards passing for the second game in a row. As such, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill underwhelmed, as neither manged to find the end zone. Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers had a massive fantasy output, throwing for four touchdowns in New York. Two of those went to Davante Adams, who has quietly been having a late season surge. Sterling Shepard scored for the Giants, which made for a profitable mini stack. Positive regression came hard for Jared Goff, who passed for well over 400 yards. One of his two touchdowns went to Cooper Kupp, his favorite redzone target. Robert Woods absolutely went off, reeling in 13 receptions for 172 yards. It’s pretty amazing that he has still yet to record a receiving touchdown on the season!
Let’s go back to the well with the Packers, who will be hosting the Redskins this Sunday. Washington struggles to contain opposing passing attacks, which is good news for Aaron Rodgers. A similar performance to last week is certainly on the table. The Redskins simply do not have anyone to cover Davante Adams,who has quietly been awesome in recent weeks. Adams could easily eclipse 100-yards receiving and has a great chance to score as well. Aaron Jones is in a nice spot at home as a heavy favorite. The Packers like using him in the red zone, and his touchdowns tend to come in bunches. In a game where Green Bay should be leading throughout, Jones could also see in uptick in volume. Play this stack if you are looking to capture as many points as possible from the Packers offense.
Indianapolis Colts (Jacoby Brissett, Zach Pascal, Parris Campbell)
Jacoby Brissett has not performed well for fantasy purposes in recent weeks. However, that could change this Sunday in Tampa Bay. The Bucs have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, which significantly raises Brissett’s ceiling. T.Y. Hilton will miss this game, but that shouldn’t hinder Brissett considering his match up. Zach Pascal was electric in Hilton’s absence last week, and he is in a nice spot to post similar numbers once again. Parris Campbell certainly carries risk, but also has a chance to post some solid numbers for his price tag. Campbell saw five targets last game, and secured them all for 53 yards. In a game with sneaky shoot-out potential, Campbell could certainly outperform his salary in a big way.
New York Jets (Sam Darnold, Robby Anderson, Jamison Crowder)
Sam Darnold will look to bounce backing after a subpar performance against a bad Bengals team. Fortunately, he is at home against another poor team, the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins haven’t been able to stop anyone all season.Without a pass rush to disrupt him, Darnold should be able to carve up Miami’s weak secondary. Robby Anderson has had two nice outings in a row, and will have no problem breaking loose against the Dolphins pitiful corners. On the underneath routes, Jamison Crowder has developed into Darnold’s favorite safety net, and could easily surpass 10 targets. Both are threats to score as well as we have seen both targeted in the red zone and both receive shots downfield. A Jets stack could be an overlooked, high-ceiling strategy play on a large slate of games this Sunday.
