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.

Tennessee Titans

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Ryan TannehillQB$7,800$6,200
Corey DavisWR$8,200$7,600
AJ BrownWR$6,100$5,100

With the Cleveland secondary really banged up, I love the Titans passing attack going off. Derrick Henry is of course in play and will be heavily owned against a Browns run defense he can exploit. However, I like the fade if he has an average day especially priced up and I can attack a passing offense that has been tremendous this season. Tennessee has a 29.5 implied total this week. Cleveland's secondary has also been aided over the last few weeks with bad weather games and a matchup with the Jaguars. They have still allowed the 10th most fantasy points per game to receivers. The Browns have allowed the 8th most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Tannehill has been a sneaky good fantasy quarterback and that should continue this week.

Minnesota Vikings

Kirk CousinsQB$7,300$6,400
Adam ThielenWR$7,800$7,300
Justin JeffersonWR$7,700$6,900

Minnesota is like Tennessee where they have a passing stack thats intriguing and also a chalky high priced running back. Going with the passing stack can pay off here as well. The Jaguars struggle against the pass and have allowed the third most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks. Kirk Cousins has played very well of late and getting Adam Thielen back is going to give this stack a third man. Both him and Justin Jefferson have been excellent fantasy options this season. The stack isn't badly priced either. Jacksonville's secondary has struggled and receivers have had monster games against them. They are allowing the 5th most fantasy points per game to wide receivers. Over the last five games we have seen the Jags give up monster games and to the top two wide receivers. Minnesota has talked about Dalvin being a bit banged up and the workload will be monitored. That might be the case this week against a lesser opponent.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron RodgersQB$8,500$6,800
Davante AdamsWR$9,500$9,000
Robert TonyanTE$5,900$3,700

Green Bay has an implied total of 27.5 this week and I like the passing attack against a defense that isn't bad against the run but are overrated against the pass because they play in the NFC East. Aaron Rodgers at home has been a lock for big fantasy points and while this is an expensive stack, it is going to be lower owned than it should be. Rodgers projects for over 20 fantasy points this week and we know Davante Adams is the go-to guy. While Darius Slay is a solid corner, he is not in a tier where I shy away from names. Philadelphia has faced a lot of mediocre offenses this season when it comes to the pass and their overall numbers are rather low. The second option is going to be where it gets tricky because you have a couple of wide receiver candidates, but the Eagles have not been good against tight ends this season, allowing the 10th most fantasy points. Tonyan has some upside and is a cheaper option and fills the tight end position that is very lackluster this week.
