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.
Two of the top five QBs in the Occupy Model come from this game. It has a 54.5 point total in betting markets, which is tied for highest of the weekend. Russell Wilson projects to see the least amount of pressure from an opposing defense in Week 2, as well.
