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.

Houston Texans

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Deshaun WatsonQB$8,000$6,700
DeAndre HopkinsWR$8,500$7,800
Will FullerWR$5,700$4,500

Houston has the third highest implied total on the main slate, and are in a good rebound spot after a disappointing game against Carolina. This is also an Atlanta team now without Keanu Neal, and were just torched through the air by the Tennessee Titans. We have yet to see this stack hit as a whole, but this is a great setup for that to happen. The Falcons rank 21st against the pass, and have not been great at getting pressure on the quarterback. This bodes well for a Houston offensive line that has struggled this season. Kenny Stills is dealing with a hamstring injury, and this would be a plus for Will Fuller. He has yet to have the breakout game, but against Atlanta this is a likely spot for that home run hit. DeAndre Hopkins has been quiet outside of his Week 1 performance. The Falcons have allowed seven six touchdowns in the last three weeks to wide receivers.

Arizona Cardinals

Kyler MurrayQB$7,400$6,300
David JohnsonRB$6,800$7,500
Larry FitzgeraldWR$5,800$6,000

The Arizona stack is pricey on DK, but that makes sense given the PPR scoring, but overall DK is just more expensive this week. Arizona has struggled on the offensive side, and this is a week to see if they are just complete frauds or not. They get Cincinnati, who have one of the worst defenses in the league. They rank 31st against the pass, and 22nd against the run. Kyler Murray has a solid ceiling this week, and is in a good spot with Larry Fitzgerald. The Bengals have also struggled against pass-catching backs, and have allowed the second most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs. Sign me up for some David Johnson this week.

New England Patriots

Tom BradyQB$7,600$6,500
Julian EdelmanWR$6,500$6,300
Josh GordonWR$6,200$6,100
Phillip DorsettWR$5,400$4,900

New England is a value stack on FanDuel this week, and they allow you to plug and play elite names around them. Quarterbacks are averaging 25 fantasy points per game against Washington this season, which is the 6th highest in the league so far. Wide receivers are averaging the 2nd most fantasy points per game against Washington. They rank 29th against the pass, and this passing offense has been clicking for the most part outside of last week. You can give them a pass against the Bills defense, and this is a great rebound week for them.
