Week 8 Daily fantasy football picks: Stacks to consider
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 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.
Andy Dalton, QB; A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd, WRs
Our top stack of the week is from the game with the third-highest projected over/under in Vegas. Specifically, the Bengals passing attack against a Buccaneers defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks and the second-most to opposing wide receivers jumps out on us. More specifically, Green and Boyd have the second- and third-best individual matchups of the week against a pair of rookie Buccaneers cornerbacks in M.J. Stewart and Carlton Davis.
