Week 11 Daily fantasy football picks: Stacks to consider
It’s DFS tournament season and everybody wants in on the fantasy football action in Week 10. 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.
Marcus Mariota, QB; Dion Lewis, RB; Corey Davis, WR; Jonnu Smith, TE
It’s our second week in a row advising a Titans stack, and while the matchup is not elite at this time, Tennessee has inspired confidence since returning from the bye week. By going with this onslaught stack of more than three players, you’re buying upside at a very cheap cost as none of the players are priced in the top-12 at their respective positions. The Colts have allowed the 12th-most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and the seventh-most to opposing tight ends, so the matchups are great there. Lewis and Davis are volume-per-price plays with 45 touches and 20 targets over the past two games, respectively.
