It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 17. 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.

Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers, QB; Jamaal Williams, RB; Davante Adams, WR

The Packers aim to finish the season strong and Rodgers has stepped up his efforts under the new offensive direction following the team’s decision to fire Mike McCarthy. Rodgers is healthier and even contributing again with rushing yards — 101 over the last three games. In another easy matchup to close out the season, we love the volume and red-zone roles for both Williams and Adams. In Week 16, Williams saw nine targets and 15 carries — he is a must-play at his price point. Adams is no bargain, but he will be a big part of the production should this stack connect.
