It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 7. 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 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.

Cleveland Browns

Baker Mayfield, QB; Nick Chubb, RB; Jarvis Landry, WR; David Njoku, TE

Yes, you’re reading this right — the rare onslaught stack with four players from the same team — and yes, it’s the Browns. With the last-minute trade sending Carlos Hyde to the Jaguars, Chubb becomes a must-play at his price. Landry and Njoku are target hogs. Over the past two games, Njoku has seen 22 targets. Landry has seen double-digit targets in all but one game this year and in every game with Mayfield starting. Tampa Bay has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and tight ends, the second-most to opposing wide receivers, and the seventh-most to opposing running backs.
