In daily fantasy sports, stacking has become a proven winning strategy. There are different types of stacking options such as, quarterback/wide receiver, quarterback/tight end, and running back/defense. Our focus in this article will be the quarterback stacking options.
*Just to note, we will not be including Thursday night players in this write-up.
Top DraftKings high-priced stack
Colts: QB Andrew Luck and WR TY Hilton ($15,800)
Of course, the more popular stacks will be the Steelers Big Ben/Antonio Brown and the Falcons Matt Ryan/Julio Jones. But give me Luck/Hilton at a lower price so I can use the extra money to pay up at other positions. I also believe that the Luck/Hilton stack will be lower owned which makes for a better GPP play since you want a unique lineup in tournaments. With an over/under of 51 points, this game is the second highest for week one which means there will be a ton of fantasy points up for grabs and I see Luck and Hilton walking away with most of those.
Top DraftKings mid-priced stack
Cowboys: QB Dak Prescott and WR Dez Bryant ($13,500)
I fully expect Dak Prescott to be the highest owned quarterback this week but most players will stack him with WR Terrence Williams or TE Jason Witten. Because of this I recommend stacking Prescott with WR Dez Bryant. It is always more profitable to stack a quarterback with the team’s number 1 wide receiver. Vegas set the games over/under at 46 points which is about average but it could become a shootout as the Cowboys are favored by just one point. By using this stack you can use the salary you will save to upgrade the running back position which could also be a plus for your lineup.
Top DraftKings low-priced stack
Chiefs: QB Alex Smith and TE Travis Kelce ($11,500)
Our final stack recommendation is a quarterback and tight end stack with the Kanas City Chiefs. Alex Smith and Travis Kelce will be low owned and will open up your lineup for other potential studs at key positions like running back and wide receiver. My only concern with this stack is that the Chiefs will be up early against the San Diego Chargers and will end up running the ball more than airing it out.
