It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 4. 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.
Russell Wilson, QB; Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett, WRs
Wilson and the Seahawks passing game showed signs of life in Week 5, connecting on three touchdowns against the Rams pass defense. Now, Wilson draws a Raiders pass defense that ranks No. 27 in pass rush and No. 25 in pass coverage. The Raiders have one of the oldest and least effective slot cornerbacks to defend Baldwin, who complained about targets last week — the squeaky wheel gets greased. They also lack speed at both safety and boundary cornerback positions which makes a big Lockett play likely — he has scored a touchdown in all but one game. Wilson himself is cheaper than he’s been on the DFS slate in several seasons and the ownership should not be overwhelming for this stack. Buy in now.
