Correlations are very relevant in daily fantasy football, 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.

Los Angeles Rams

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Jared GoffQB$7,800$6,200
Cooper KuppWR$7,800$7,400
Robert WoodsWR$7,300$5,900
Brandin CooksWR$6,700$5,400

This will be a popular stack, but it is extremely tough to pass up this week. Atlanta has allowed 300+ passing yards in three of the last four games, and has allowed middle of the road quarterbacks like Marcus Mariota and Jacoby Brissett to post 25 and 23 FD point games. They were also just torched by Kyler Murray for over 30 FD points. This Atlanta defense isn't bad against the run, ranking 7th, but rank 31st against the pass. With an iffy offensive line and some backs with injury concerns, I would bank on the Rams airing it out again. Cooper Kupp has been excellent with 522 yards and four touchdowns, catching 70% of balls thrown his way. Both Woods and Cooks have breakouts coming to their names as well. This is the stack this week, and find contrarian options to plug around them for tournaments.

New York Giants

Daniel JonesQB$7,200$6,100
Saquon BarkleyRB$8,600$8,900
Evan EngramTE$6,800$6,500
Golden TateWR$6,100$5,800

The Cardinals will get back Patrick Peterson, who is expected to spend more time on Slayton. This defense has been an easy target for fantasy points as the offense plays up in pace, and the defense is already lackluster, but just struggle against both the pass and the run. Saquon Barkley is back this week, and I am fine getting him back into lineups despite the injury layoff. The Cardinals are a bottom half rush defense and gave life to two running backs who have struggled over the last two weeks. They also rank 29th against the pass, and we know they struggle against tight ends. Evan Engram is going to be chalky this week, but is averaging 9.6 targets per game. Golden Tate is a better stacking option on DK, but isn't a necessity in this stack.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Gardner MinshewQB$6,900$5,400
Leonard FournetteRB$7,900$7,000
DJ CharkWR$6,600$6,000

The Bengals are bottom five against the run and the pass this season. Leonard Fournette is a major stand out as he takes on a Bengals defense allowing 30+ fantasy point games to running backs this season. They have allowed the most in the league. Fournette is averaging 23.5 touches per game this season, and the touchdowns will be coming soon. In addition to Fournette, I like Gardner Minshew and Chark. The reason why teams aren't scoring as many fantasy points through the air is that they haven't needed to against this team. When I can narrow down Minshew and Chark, which has been an excellent duo, I like them against a bottom five pass defense.
