My weekly series on game stacks and blowup performances have been condensed into one article to give you both DFS recommendations for this AFC and NFC Championship slate of football. We will walk through both games to get some ideas on what is the best opportunity to game stack. The blowup model will then highlight the wide receivers and tight ends who are the best bets to clear our fantasy-point threshold this weekend.

The shorter slate forces more game stacks into a lineup, which does seem to be the optimal approach for DFS this weekend. As such, the game stacks you settle on should feature a higher concentration of players than what we would utilize during the regular season. 


This spread continues to see early week movement, testing -3 with added juice or -3.5 with the vig flipped. All indications are that this game should stay close throughout, but PFF Greenline does find a little value in the Packers at -3.
