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.

Atlanta Falcons

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Matt RyanQB$7,800$6,500
Julio JonesWR$8,500$8,500
Austin HooperTE$6,000$5,800

The Falcons are in a good spot for the final week, with Tampa Bay on the horizon. This is a defense that is excellent against the run, but struggle against the pass. Quarterbacks have averaged the 7th most fantasy points per game against the Buccaneers. Julio Jones has had a good track record against the Buccaneers, which is no surprise given that secondary. They have allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season, and the 6th most to opposing tight ends. Hooper and Jones should see plenty of targets. Jones has seen 24.5% of the targets this season, and Hooper has seen 15%. Calvin Ridley was at 18% and he is of course out for the year. Russell Gage is also in play seeing more work of late.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron RodgersQB$8,300$6,900
Davante AdamsWR$8,400$8,000
Allen LazardWR$5,400$4,000

Stacking Green Bay hasn't been a profitable way to go the last few seasons, but they are in a great spot this week. Allen Lazard and Davante Adams will face a weaker secondary, although Adams will have to face Darius Slay. That doesn't scare me too much with Adams volume this season. He has crossed the 100 target mark and this is with missing a few games due to injury. Lazard is a cheap value who has seen a larger target share over the last few games. The Lions have allowed the 6th most fantasy points per game to wide receivers this season, and that hasn't changed. They have allowed the 4th most over the last five weeks. Quarterbacks have averaged 24.3 fantasy points per game against Detroit this season.

Los Angeles Rams

Jared GoffQB$7,900$6,200
Tyler HigbeeTE$6,900$5,600
Robert WoodsWR$7,700$7,000

It is going to be hard to count on the Rams, but in tournaments this is a great matchup and it is too tough to pass up. Arizona has allowed the most fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season (26.1). While I am not expecting history to repeat its self completely, but Jared Goff's 29.2 fantasy points in the last meeting is what we are after. The Cardinals have allowed six 30+ fantasy point games to opposing quarterbacks this season. Narrowing down the pass-catching options can be tricky, but we know where to at least start against the Cardinals. They have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing tight ends and it is not even close. Tyler Higbee is coming into this week already destroying the Cardinals, but has four straight 100+ receiving yard games. The Cardinals have allowed the 13th most fantasy points per game over this season. Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp are my targets, with an emphasis on Woods. Cooks upside has suffered this season.
