Fantasy Football: Best DFS stacks for Week 1

Daily fantasy sports contests are a fun way to try to stand out among thousands of fantasy football lineup-builders across the land. One of the best ways to maximize upside is to stack players from the same offense — a quarterback and a wide receiver or QB/TE — whose success might overlap. The more contrarian the stack, the more likely our DFS lineups are to stand out if these players go off in Week 1.

The following Week 1 DFS stacks offer a unique mix of price, matchup and opportunity.

Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Giants

QB Ben Roethlisberger ($7,800 FD, $6,400 DK) & WR Diontae Johnson ($5,900 FD, $4,200 DK)

Big Ben is officially back and appears to be fully recovered from the elbow injury that knocked him out of the 2019 season after only two weeks. Luckily for him and the Steelers, they enter Week 1 with the perfect opportunity to rebound off a tough 2019 season with a cakewalk of a matchup in the New York Giants. Last season, the Giants allowed the third-most points to opposing quarterbacks and the fifth-most points to opposing wide receivers.
