Stacking in daily fantasy football can be the key to winning a large-field tournament. In this space, GPP master Justin “STLCardinals84” will detail his favorite correlations to help you optimize your DFS lineups.

Conference Championships

Welcome back, Grinders! This will be the final core stacks article of the year. Thanks for checking this piece out throughout the season. I hope it helped you as you built your GPP rosters throughout the season.

Let’s try to end the year on a high note by checking out some stacks that I like for daily fantasy sports lineups for the Conference Championship Round! I will also touch on some single game strategy for the Showdown slates as well.

Core Stack #1 – Damien Williams + A.J. Brown

I absolutely love this pairing for Conference Championship week. While the Titans have thrown the ball as little as possible over their first two playoff games, I don’t expect game flow to be as favorable in this contest. That means that they will need to use the right arm of Ryan Tannehill more than they have against the Patriots and Ravens. Those first two playoff matchups were nightmare draws for A.J. Brown. He was incredible over the last half of the regular season, but his production was over-shadowed by the even more incredible performance by Derrick Henry. Brown has largely been a non-factor in the playoffs with Henry dominating the offense, but the first two matchups were against the two best secondaries in the NFL. This is a great bounce-back spot for Brown in a game where the Titans will likely have to take to the air a little more. It’s the right time to buy low.
