2019 NFL Draft Guide: Leave the Stacking to DFS Contests
Everyone loves the double-points they get when their QB throws to their WR for a touchdown, but Justin Vreeland explains why stacking in seasonal fantasy football could be a negative for your team.
Are you targeting your teams starting quarterback and a pair of his wide receivers in your upcoming draft? Stop. Fight the urge. Maybe it’s not even your favorite team, maybe you just think Jared Goff , Brandin Cooks , and Cooper Kupp will be an explosive combination for you on a weekly basis. Stop. Leave the team stacking to DFS.
Stacking works great in DFS, as it’s a daily platform and (in football) you are just hoping for a big week from a certain offense. They are matched up with a team that has a poor defense and a strong offense, giving us every reason to believe that the game will be a shootout that can produce massive results. Being able to pick and choose when and who you decide to stack makes it so much easier for DFS than for seasonal. In seasonal, if those are your best guys, you are more than likely playing them week in, and week out. If your stack in DFS doesn’t work out, you are stuck with a disappointing week of DFS, but it means nothing going into next week...
