The first week of the NFL season is in the books and we are on to Week 2. While last week saw a ton of high-profile players let us down in big spots NFL DFS (RIP Team Jam Em’ In), there are a multitude of prime spots this week that have major shootout potential — and that’s where our daily fantasy football stacking advice comes into play.
To start, let’s highlight the two games that look like absolute track meets, The Patriots face the Saints in New Orleans with a point total of 54.5 (highest on the slate). The Superdome is notorious for high scoring affairs, and the Patriots offense will be out for blood after looking less than stellar in Week 1. The second game we really need to look at is the Sunday night hammer game, as the Packers face the Falcons in Atlanta with a point total of 53.5. It would be wise to have exposure to both of these games in cash games and GPPs, and I will break down my favorite stacks from these games below.
For those new to DFS, stacking is a key strategy, and the tools over at RotoQL help make finding the best stacks easy. With projections for ceilings and floors, as well as correlation, value ratings and Vegas lines, they really take the guesswork out of your research. (See below for examples.)
I’m also always taking your questions; so don’t forget to give me a follow on Twitter (@DFSBenj) for more NFL, MLB and PGA daily fantasy content.
