GAMES TO STACK
If you read our NFL DFS Strategy Guide, then you know game stacking is the key to unlocking correlated upside in your NFL DFS classic lineups (if you haven’t, go read it). The guide discusses how to identify the best game stack opportunities each week.
We highly recommend 3x1 game stacks in your Sunday main slate tournament lineups - that means pairing a QB with two of his teammates, and also using an opposing pass catcher.
Each team is different, so below we’ll outline our preferred stacking partners based on matchups and personnel in our favorite games.
Plays are listed in order of preference, highest risk players are italicized.
With a high 50 point total, the Chargers and Bengals have an extremely high ceiling as a game stack opportunity. The Bengals are slight home favorites, and feature Ja'Marr Chase and Joe Mixon as primary weapons with upside. The Chargers pass at the second highest rate in the NFL, and have Keenan Allen, Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler at their disposal.
