The Top DFS Contrarian Stacks: Week 3


When laying out contrarian stacks, I’ll be using a combination of our Stack Value Reports and GPP Leverage Scores to find unique stacks that can take down a tournament. I encourage you to read the series on how to win a GPP in the DFS Strategy Hub. You’ll quickly realize that taking down a tournament requires a balance of players ranging from low-owned to chalky.

I like building contrarian stacks around my chalkier core of players because you only have to get one instance correct for it to hit. For example, if we hit on a contrarian quarterback play while having a pass-catcher or two from that same game, the positive correlation of those stacks is technically getting one contrarian play correct despite filling multiple roster slots. I feel this is easier than having a chalkier stack while trying to hit multiple individual low-owned plays throughout the rest of your lineup. Keep in mind that these are contrarian stacks, so you don’t have to use these stacks in a large percentage of lineups to be overweight on the field.

QB/WR1/TE1/Opposing WR1 Stack

QB Jimmy Garoppolo ($6,500 FD/$7,400 DK)

WR Dante Pettis ($5,200 FD/$4,300 DK) or Marquise Goodwin ($5,800 FD/$5,500 DK)

TE George Kittle ($5,800 FD/$4,500 DK)
