    Just wanted to throw out a quick question to everybody because I feel I’ve been trying to use too many stacks when I make my lineups. I’m sure it’s slate-specific but how many stacks do you all utilize when making your lineups? Thank you ahead of time for your responses.

    I’m interested in the responses to this too. I do different strategies for different game types, with increasing consolidation for larger fields with top-heavy payouts. Generally no planned stacks for 50/50, 4-stack or 3-3 for single-entry tournaments, and 5-stack for big GPP. Would be great if somebody had some data behind what works the best!

    I am a Gpp only player and I always do a 5 man stack or 4 man on fan duel. Sometimes I’ll do a 5/3 stack but mostly I do a 5 man with 3 one offs. On fan duel I do 4/4 but probably do that a little to much.

    Do you just take the top 5 in the batting order?

    For cash games, I don’t usually do the full stacks. I just try to get the high-contact, high on-base players instead of relying solely on the big homerun ball. I play FanDuel mostly so the chalkiest pitcher, the raw points guy no matter the price is going to be in my cash game lineup. GPPs, I pretty much go full 4-4 stacks. If i“m multi-entering, I’ll use different combinations of the 4 player stacks, not just the first four batters. You have to differentiate in order to win that GPP, so I’ll have some 8,9,1,2 or 2,4,6,8 combinations.

    Depends on the matchup. For me, most of the time it’s not 1-5.

    if i’m going to stack a tea in a real good run environment i want to capture, i’ll usually build a few iterations of the lineup, building 4 or 5’s out of all the players in the lineup so not to miss the big score

    No because every slate is different so it depends on multiple factors for me. For instance If I’m spending up on stud pitchers on dk I’m likely going to have to take some bottom of the order guys in my stacks for salary reasons. Or say I want to stack a team but I also want to put Trout or machado in my lineup then again I’m going to have to put some bottom of the order players in my stack to make it work. Using bottom of the order guys can also be beneficial in Gpp’s because even if your stack is highly owned the guys at the bottom will be less owned. This is all strictly Gpp as I’m someone who likes taking high risks which makes me not good at cash games which I never play.
