Week 5 DFS Stack Report
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:
Matthew Stafford and Golden Tate
Stafford is the home QB in a very favorable fantasy game against the Packers with a current 51 point Over/Under. The value of this game from a fantasy standpoint should facilitate plenty of fantasy points and that will benefit the Lions’ passing-centric offense. Stack the ever-reliable Stafford with Tate who is tied for ninth in the league in targets (44) and has seen a very healthy 26% target share so far this season. Tate is hot right now too as he’s coming off a Week 4 performance where he caught all eight of his targets for 132 yards and 2 TDs.
