Correlations are very relevant in NFL DFS, as we like to pair up quarterbacks with their top receiving options. While the running back and defense stack is not as high of an upside stack as using a passing game, it is still viable with the right plays around it, and still brings a small correlation of upside. Game stacks can often be overlooked, but why wouldn't you want exposure to the team trying to keep up or chasing your favorite passing offense? There are ways to be contrarian by still targeting a top offense projected with higher ownership. Shifting from the popular WR1 to a WR2, TE, or even RB is going to help you get exposure at slightly less ownership. WR1, RB1, WR2, and TE1 in that order stand the highest chances of generating the most fantasy points in a stack. This is at least for two man stacks. We will dive into more multiplayer stacks below. Volume, Vegas, opposing defensive stats, pace, and pricing are all calculated into my stacks below. You will find my top, value, contrarian, and game stacks within the article. You can find me on Twitter at @JGuilbault11 to help with the week's slate, or questions/comments about the article.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jameis WinstonQB$7,900$6,800
Mike EvansWR$8,600$7,600
Chris GodwinWR$8,200$7,400

This is an easy game to stack on both sides, and the value of the Cardinals wide receivers also make this a game stack to go with. It will be chalky, and I don't care. There are pivots to make outside of these names. Both Christian Kirk and Larry Fitzgerald are values, against a bad Tampa secondary. They rank 26th against the pass, and Arizona ranks 28th. So to the Tampa side of things, Arizona is allowing 24 PPR points per game to opposing wideouts, which is the 10th most. Opposing quarterbacks are averaging 23.5 points per game against the Cardinals this season. Targets are easily going towards Evans and Godwin. Even though both have not crushed in the same week, this is a week where that can certainly happens.

New York Giants

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Daniel JonesQB$7,400$5,700
Saquon BarkleyRB$8,600$8,800
Golden TateWR$6,300$5,900

The Giants are in a really good spot this week at home, and come in as a reasonably priced stack. Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard are doubtful for Week 10, which leaves Golden Tate and Saquon Barkley to get a big bump in the passing game. The Jets are allowing the 8th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, and rank 25th against the pass. Daniel Jones is a strong value option on both sites, and I am hoping they go overlooked just a bit. Tate is someone I am plugging in as a value play this week. I am also expecting a Saquon Barkley bounce back against a Jets team that has been giving up fantasy points to the above average running backs and not the Mark Walton's of the world.

New Orleans Saints

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Drew BreesQB$8,300$6,700
Alvin KamaraRB$8,300$8,200
Michael ThomasWR$8,700$8,300

With an implied total over 30, we can easily point towards the Saints as a top stack on a limited slate of games. They are coming off a bye week and get a home matchup against the Falcons, who have a bottom five defense. Alvin Kamara may not quite be 100%, but he took a big leap in terms of health coming off the bye week. This might put his ownership a bit lower than usual. The Falcons are in the bottom half in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs this season, and Kamara is always a big upside guy, especially on DraftKings with the PPR scoring. The passing game is an easy target here. Atlanta is allowing the third most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Michael Thomas should hit his ceiling this week, as the Falcons are allowing the third most fantasy points per game to WRs as well.
