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:
Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins
The Colts at Texans game is by far my favorite fantasy game of the weekend and Vegas agrees as it currently boasts the highest Over/Under (48.5). Let’s start with the home QB in this great matchup as Deshaun Watson gets to play at home against a Colts defense that ranks 16th in passing yards allowed per game and 20th in Pass DVOA. Rostering Watson helps you create a stack with DeAndre Hopkins, who has seen double-digit targets in five straight games and gone over 100 yards receiving in three straight. Hopkins finished the regular season ranked sixth in targets per game, third in receptions, second in receiving yards, and fifth in receiving TDs.
