Season-long fantasy football feels like a distant memory, but the good news is that you don’t have to stop playing fantasy football just yet. We’re here to discuss stacking options for the Divisional Round of the playoffs for those in DFS.

Today, we’re going to break down our favorite stacks that you can use in tournaments this weekend for the four NFL teams in play. With fewer players in the pool to choose from, we’ll get a little creative.

New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees QB; Michael Thomas, WR

The Los Angeles Rams allowed the 14th-most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers in the regular season. High-profile offseason additions Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib didn’t live up to the hype. Despite Peters self-proclamation that he “choked out” Amari Cooper last week, we expect Thomas to have a clear edge in this matchup. This stack is all about keeping it simple and pinpointing the best matchup we expect the Saints to lean on. According to our WR/CB matchup chart, Thomas is one of two receivers on the slate with a clear-cut advantage from an individual matchup standpoint.
