It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 15. 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.
Jared Goff, QB; Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, WRs
If you’re playing the primetime slate, the Rams have an obvious bounceback spot at home — out of the cold weather for Goff — and matched up against an Eagles secondary that allowed Dak Prescott to throw for a career-high 455 passing yards last week. Sometimes teams fall prey to a seemingly absurd rash of injuries at one position in one season. That is the case for the Eagles secondary in 2018 and we have to exploit that in DFS. The Eagles don’t have anyone on the back end who can keep up with Cooks, so you can expect a big day from him.
