My weekly series on game stacks and blowup performances have been condensed into one article to give you both DFS recommendations for this Divisional Round slate of football.

We will walk through each game to get some ideas on the best game-stack approaches. The blowup model will then highlight the wide receivers and tight ends with the best opportunities to clear our fantasy-point threshold this weekend.

The shorter slate does force more game stacks into a lineup, which seems 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 matchup has a number of concerns from a fantasy-point perspective, as it has the lowest total of any game this weekend. The Rams’ injury concerns at quarterback are front and center, but there is also the added weather element of Lambeau Field in January.
