STLCards' NFL DFS Picks - Core Stacks: Week 2
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.
Welcome back, Grinders! NFL Football has returned! It is nice to have football back in our lives, and I hope that you enjoy this article as the season goes along. Let’s get things started!
In case you are new to the NFL DFS space or new to RotoGrinders, this was a new article series that began last year. The goal of the article is to detail some of my favorite GPP correlation plays of the week. These could be anything from full game stacks to simple QB/WR combinations to RB/DEF combinations to anything in between. I will include some chalkier builds and some lower owned builds throughout the article, and I will touch on our RotoGrinders projected ownership figures along the way.
You may ask yourself why stacks and correlation plays are so important in NFL DFS. Well, we have seen time and again throughout the years that correlation plays lead to winning tournament lineups.
Scenario #1 – If you roster a quarterback that throws six touchdown passes with four of them going to one wide receiver, you probably aren’t winning a GPP with that quarterback unless you also have him paired with that wide receiver.
