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.

Note: There are quite a few stacks to roll with this week. Green Bay remains an easy call, although expensive to fit all three of the studs in there, but certainly doable on FanDuel. Seattle is in play with their passing game, alongside Arizona. I also like the Saints, they should be lower owned despite having a near 30 implied total. Houston and Cleveland were originally looked at but the winds are going to be high in that game and the total has already come crashing down.

Buffalo Bills

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Josh AllenQB$8,700$7,500
Stefon DiggsWR$7,900$7,500
John BrownWR$5,600$5,300

Buffalo heads out on the road this week and faces Arizona. With some of the weather kicking up in the early games, I have focused on stacking in the afternoon ones. Buffalo has an implied total of 27 this week. Josh Allen has been tremendous this season, averaging 34 passing attempts and over seven rushing attempts per game. He gets a pretty average Arizona defense that has struggled against the pass at times this season. Allen is averaging over 20 fantasy points in his last three games, but that number jumps up over 25 over the course of the season. Allen has one of the highest ceilings on the slate. Stefon Diggs and John Brown were both productive last week but this stack didn't hit to the full potential because they didn't get the touchdowns. Diggs is averaging over 15 fantasy points per game in his last three and has averaged 10.7 targets in that span. Diggs is a solid option this week, and Brown offers up some value. Brown has an 18 fantasy point ceiling on the season and has finally gotten healthy.

Los Angeles Chargers

Justin HerbertQB$8,000$6,600
Mike WilliamsWR$5,900$5,400
Keenan AllenWR$7,800$7,100

The Chargers have been a terrific stack over the last few games and much of the targets in the passing game is centered around this group here. This is another high scoring affair this week and the Chargers are in a great spot. Justin Herbert continues to crush and the price tag on this stack isn't bad at all, especially with the value at RB this week. Herbert is averaging 28 fantasy points per game in his last three outings and faces a Miami defense that has been decent but still have allowed some big games on the year. Herbert also has a rushing floor where he can tack on a couple of points just with the rushing production. Keenan Allen has certainly been a go-to with 11.7 targets per game in the last three. He has been excellent this season and the price tag is actually a bargain for his 25 fantasy points per game in that same span on DK. Miami's secondary was revamped but still are allowing an above average number of fantasy points this season. Williams has come around a bit more with six targets and 11.8 fantasy points in his last three games. Williams has that big play upside and offers up some value.

Los Angeles Rams

Jared GoffQB$7,400$6,500
Robert WoodsWR$7,200$6,600
Cooper KuppWR$7,700$6,900

With the list of stacks shrinking, I decided to throw what will be a popular stack this week with the Rams. They have a four-touchdown implied total and get a weak Seattle secondary. This should be a high scoring game with plenty of wrap around stack potential with a Tyler Lockett or DK Metcalf on the other side. Goff isn't someone I fully trust, but this is a Seattle defense allowing 37% more production to quarterbacks than the league average. Goff has around a 25 fantasy point ceiling on the season which is solid for the price tag. Robert Woods has been very productive this season and Seattle is allowing 57% above the league average for fantasy points to wide receivers. Woods is averaging 7.7 targets and 2.7 rushing attempts per game on the season and is over the 15 fantasy points per game mark in the last three. Cooper Kupp popped up on the injury report and if he fails to go we should see Josh Reynolds pick up the slack. Gerald Everett is also an interesting value in this one. If Kupp plays, which seems to be the case, he has averaged nine targets per game this season and is averaging 14 fantasy points in his last three.
