The top player stacks for Week 16 in daily fantasy
It’s Week 16 and that means you’re either in the fantasy championship or you are out. Fear not — even if you were eliminated from your season-long leagues, there’s always daily fantasy. Today, we’re going to try to find you the single best stack to use on each of the big three daily fantasy websites.
When searching for these stacks, we factor in price, value, upside and ownership. You don’t want to run out a stack that most of the field is playing — that’s a recipe for limited success in large-field tournaments. Our goal is to find you a stack that you can feel confident using, but also one that will allow to take a more contrarian approach to DFS tournaments.
Cam Newton, QB; Ted Ginn, WR (Panthers vs. Falcons)
Fantasy owners have been scared away by Newton this season, and I don’t blame them. He hasn’t been the elite QB1 that most expected him to be, but in Week 15, he showed signs of turning things around. Newton was accurate and operated out of the pocket for nearly the entire game. The results was a solid 18-fantasy-point performance in a game that could’ve been even bigger if the Redskins kept up and changed the game script. Newton’s biggest play was a 30-yard touchdown pass to Ginn. The two nearly connected on another 65-yard touchdown bomb, but Newton slightly underthrew him.
