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.

Seattle Seahawks

Chris CarsonRB$8,000$7,000
Tyler LockettWR$7,200$7,000
DK MetcalfWR$6,600$5,000

Targeting Atlanta is one of the easier things to do right now, especially through the air. DK Metcalf had a rough last week, but I love this spot for him. He is averaging 19.4 yards per reception this season, and has been a targetable deep threat, which helps against Atlanta. Tyler Lockett is also a strong play getting Atlanta. He is averaging 2.4 DK points per target, and 1.9 FD points. He averages 6.8 targets per game, and gets the 30th ranked pass defense. Russell Wilson should be able to torch this secondary, and Chris Carson is also a threat to get positive game script in the second half, and his volume of touches has been strong this season.

Detroit Lions

Matthew StaffordQB$7,700$6,100
Ty JohnsonRB$5,200$4,900
Kenny GolladayWR$6,700$6,400
Marvin JonesWR$6,300$5,800

New York's defense is easy to target, and the Lions are not badly priced on either site. The Giants are allowing the third highest amount of yards per attempt this season, and have allowed over 380 yards of offense per game. They are allowing 26.7 points per game, and this game can turn into a game stack. I like the Giants side as well, as Detroit's defense isn't far behind these types of numbers allowed. I like the passing attack here if you are looking to get away from the Ty Johnson chalk, but he is also not a bad name to include in the stack given he flashed potential in the passing game, and this could just flat out be an onslaught.

Tennessee Titans

Ryan TannehillQB$6,900$5,100
AJ BrownWR$5,500$4,100
Corey DavisWR$5,500$4,400

The passing game for Tennessee is worth a look here, especially at such cheap price tags. Ryan Tannehill gave us some hope for fantasy relevance in the passing game, and this is a terrific spot for him again. It is a tough spot for Derrick Henry, and he has negative correlation in the passing game, so I will avoid him like the other stacks. The Buccaneers are allowing just 68 rushing yards per game, but over 370 total yards per game. Most of that is coming through the air. Opposing quarterbacks are throwing over 40 times per game against Tampa Bay. Given the value and ability to plug in other big names from other top spots makes it a great stack.
