The stacking strategy in DFS involves pairing multiple skill position players from the same team. In some occasions, there is value in loading up with an “onslaught” — as it’s termed in the DFS community — with sometimes up to four players from the same team.

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 tacks are not specific to FanDuel or DraftKings unless specified in the write-up.)

Andy Dalton, QB, and A.J. Green, WR, Cincinnati Bengals

The squeaky wheel gets greased, especially when said wheel is franchise cornerstone Green. In Week 3, Green is going to lock into the 15-20 target range in what should be the most voluminous week in a while for a No. 1 receiver after he openly called out the team’s offense (which led to a change in offensive coordinator). The good news is the Green draws the best matchup of the Week against Damarious Randall. And when Green flips to line up at the flanker position, he draws another struggling cornerback in Davon House. Lock this stack up and get as much exposure to it as you wish.
