It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 10. Whether you’re about to join the Millionaire Maker or a single-entry tournament, it’s important to consider the stacking strategy.
Just like any strategy option in DFS, there are multiple ways to grab value from stacking. You can pay up for your stack and find two of the highest-scoring players in all of DFS that week. Sometimes, you can even find two of the highest scorers without paying up and instead finding value in the middle range. And of course, you can win using my favorite strategy — bargain stacks that allow you to find game-winners in the rest of your lineup.
Every week we’ll break down all of my favorite stacks overall and make the case for why you should be using them in your DFS tournament and cash games.
These stacks are not specific to FanDuel or DraftKings unless signified in the writeup.
Aaron Rodgers, QB; Marquez Valdes-Scantling, WR; Green Bay DST
A November game at Lambeau against a Dolphins offense that will struggle to move the ball consistently with Brock Osweiler offers a lot of upside in this stack for the Green Bay DST and for the Packers passing game as they should have plenty of possessions. Valdes-Scantling benefits from the injury to Geronimo Allison here and should start as the boundary receiver when the Packers go with just two receivers on the field — he has also emerged in recent weeks as Rodgers’ downfield option. All Packers offer tournament upside at home in this matchup and we would be fine if you also threw running back Aaron Jones in the stack.
