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.

Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson, QB; Chris Carson, RB; Doug Baldwin, WR

The Chiefs matchup is a great one to get Seahawks offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer out of his comfort zone, as the Seattle defense will have some trouble slowing down Kansas City’s offense. This is good news for Wilson and the rest of this stack. The Chiefs have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and second-most to running backs. Carson’s volume is as locked in as his red-zone role and Baldwin showed signs of life with two touchdowns and a healthy look in Week 15. This game has the second-highest over/under and PFF Greenline projects the over to hit.
