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.

New York Giants

Daniel JonesQB$7,300$5,300
Wayne GallmanRB$5,800$4,600
Sterling ShepardWR$6,500$5,800
Evan EngramTE$6,800$5,700

I will be avoiding talking about the Rams, Chiefs, and teams playing Miami most weeks, as they are the obvious stacks on the slate. So do note they are playable.

With Daniel Jones under center, the pass-catchers have more upside, as we have already seen in Week 3. I like going back to the well here, as they remain fairly underpriced again. They are at home against Washington, which is a pedestrian defense. Wayne Gallman is starting for the injured Saquon Barkley. Gallman is a fine play this week, but likely won't have my attention over the next few. He does work in the passing game which helps him out if you want to go through the full on stack. However, I like the contrarian move of fading Gallman and hoping that the passing attack sees all the volume.

Houston Texans

Deshaun WatsonQB$8,200$6,400
DeAndre HopkinsWR$8,700$7,700
Kenny StillsWR$5,400$4,200
Will FullerWR$5,900$4,500

Houston is back at home this week, and overall they haven't quite clicked as a whole stack yet. We also have yet to see Will Fuller get going. I am more inclined to use the passing attack over any of the Houston running backs this week. This game has potential to turn into a shootout, which would be a plus for both sides. The Carolina pass defense isn't bad, but Houston just has a ton of upside. It starts with Deshaun Watson, who has a lot of rushing potential as well. We know DeAndre Hopkins is going to be the primary target, but it will be hit or miss with Kenny Stills and Will Fuller. Both have a similar floor and upside, yet it has been Stills to do the damage so far.

Carolina Panthers

Kyle AllenQB$6,800$5,200
Christian McCaffreyRB$9,000$8,800
Curtis SamuelWR$5,800$4,600
Greg OlsenTE$6,000$4,200

While Carolina won't quite have a defense like Arizona to feast on, but Houston hasn't given much for us to shy away from attacking them. It starts with a cheap air it out style quarterback, as Kyle Allen can really sling it. This helps Curtis Samuel and DJ Moore, and it was Samuel who dominated targets out of the two. Moore did have the touchdown, and is playable, but is the third option for me of this stack. Greg Olsen has found his legs this season, and gets another strong matchup against Houston, who have struggled against tight ends ending back to last season. Christian McCaffrey is just a flat out stud, and one of the top backs on the slate.
