The Top DFS Contrarian Stacks: Week 8

The Top Contrarian Stacks of Week 8 highlight under-the-radar correlation plays to make your otherwise chalky lineups a bit more unique.

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.
