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: Love the Packers again this week as they were the featured stack last week. Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones or Jamaal Williams depending on health, and Davante Adams is a strong stack again. Kansas City and Seattle are also solid stacks, per usual. I also like the Bengals again, but to change things up as I had them last week, there are a few other teams to cover.

San Francisco 49ers

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Jimmy GaroppoloQB$6,600$5,400
George KittleTE$7,700$7,000
Brandon AiyukWR$5,900$5,800

Seattle's defense has been giving up a ton of fantasy points this season, in fact they are giving up the second most fantasy points in the entire league on a per game basis. This week they welcome a banged up 49ers team that has been banged up all year long. This is a great spot to target the 49ers offense as it is a fairly cheap stack, outside of the George Kittle price tag. While Deebo Samuel is out, we will see Brandon Aiyuk pick up a few extra touches but he has been productive since returning from his injury. Looking at Jimmy Garoppolo, he is usually a guy I don't like playing, but Seattle will move the ball and this is a game that should create the 49ers to step on the pedal a bit. Seattle has allowed over 25 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season and the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. While Kittle doesn't have a great track record against Seattle, nor has Seattle allowed many fantasy points to tight ends this year is a bit different. Seattle's defense doesn't have a real threat to take him away, nor have they played many viable tight ends to rack up fantasy points against them.

Las Vegas Raiders

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Derek CarrQB$7,300$5,500
Darren WallerTE$6,800$5,600
Nelson AgholorWR$5,000$4,700

The Raiders are likely low on the list of teams to stack this week, but if you are firing off multiple lineups or playing some 1PM only, they make a lot of sense to stack. It is not an expensive stack and you can also look at Henry Ruggs over Nelson Agholor if you want to get weird. Las Vegas has a 24.25 implied total this week and the Browns run defense is fairly solid while their pass defense struggles. Receivers against the Browns this year are averaging 210.2 receiving yards per game, 1.57 receiving touchdowns and 32.4 fantasy points per game this is a great spot for the passing attack that has actually been somewhat underrated this season. You also have to look at Darren Waller who is averaging double-digit fantasy points in his last ten games. Not a bad spot for him this week either. If you are looking for a low owned and/or cheaper stack to work with, the Raiders are well in play.

Tennessee Titans

PlayerPositionFanDuel PriceDraftKings Price
Ryan TannehillQB$7,500$6,800
Derrick HenryRB$9,500$8,000
AJ BrownWR$7,500$6,900

This is another upside spot for the Tennessee offense that has been putting up big numbers all year long. They have a 29 implied total this week, which is second to only the Chiefs this week. Cincinnati's offense is also good enough to keep the pressure on where the Titans can't let up. Both sides this season have had insanely high scoring games and this bodes well this week with another total over 50. Ryan Tannehill is still underpriced on FD but the DK prices have caught up with this entire team after last week. I also like Jonnu Smith as a weapon as well. AJ Brown has been tremendous for a while now and has averaged 17.1 FD points over his last seven healthy games. He gets a Bengals secondary that has struggled to slow down anybody. Tannehill is averaging 22.7 fantasy points per game over his last seven and the Bengals are allowing 261 yards and 2.1 passing touchdowns per game this season. This is also a stack where you can include Derrick Henry even though he doesn't work in the passing game. The Bengals run defense is in the bottom third and are allowing 19.4 FD points per game. Henry projects for the most touches out of any back this week.
