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:
Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown
Big Ben leads the league in pass attempts per game and projects to throw a ton this week with James Conner on the sideline. That bodes well for his outlook this week against a Raiders defense that ranks 14th in passing yards allowed per game and dead last in Pass DVOA. Especially since Roethlisberger has been good all season long. Roethlisberger ranks first in the league in passing yards per game and leads a Steelers team that ranks fourth in yards per game and fourth in points per game. Stack Big Ben with Antonio Brown, who leads the league in targets per game, ranks 11th in receiving yards, and first in TD receptions.
