Stacks are correlation plays that are ideal in tournaments because they help your lineup differentiate from the crowd while simultaneously putting more upside in your lineup’s range of outcomes. But stacks can absolutely be considered in cash as well if you feel the matchup is favorable enough. Stacks should always be in consideration and here are some of my favorites this week:
Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce
Patty Mahomes who finished the regular season ranked second in passing yards per game and first in pass TDs and led a Chiefs team that ranked first in yards per game and first in points per game. Mahomes has the honors of being the home QB in by far the best fantasy game of the weekend and gets to face off against a Colts defense that finished the regular season ranked 16th in passing yards allowed per game and 20th in Pass DVOA. Stack Mahomes with Travis Kelce, who finished the regular season ranked second in targets per game, third in receptions, third in receiving yards, and tied for third in receiving TDs out of all players on this slate.
