Here at 4for4 we will continue to supply DFS subscribers with Value Reports for individual players at each position, as well as the Stack Value Reports, which specifically valuate the best stacks of the week in terms of projected points per dollar. These tools are invaluable when constructing your tournament rosters.

Projected points-per-dollar is a great stat to use when constructing lineups. However, you should consider ownership before you just plug in our number-one "chalk" play of the week when you're making a tournament lineup​. Yes, you will see a few highly owned players most weeks in the Millionaire Maker winning lineup on DraftKings. However, the difference for those lineups is that they each hit on a few contrarian plays to put them over the top. Diversifying your lineup with a contrarian stack or a low-salary stack is a great strategy. It allows you to surround that stack with with a strong roster in projected points per dollar that that you can feel highly confident in.

In this column I will provide you with some of my top stacks that will likely have low ownership and can still give you that high ceiling you are looking for in Week 7.

Carson Palmer ($8200 FD / $6700 DK) & Michael Floyd ($4900 FD / $3200 DK) vs. BAL

Carson Palmer will likely have high ownership on both DraftKings and FanDuel this week in both cash games and GPP, and for good reason. Palmer will face a Baltimore team that is the most favorable matchup in the NFL to quarterbacks. The way to diversify in tournaments could be to pair him with wide receiver Michael Floyd. After returning from a hand injury, Floyd has become a bigger part of the Cardinals offense in recent weeks. He drew eight targets in Week 6 against the Steelers, securing five catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.  He nearly had a second touchdown, but was unable to keep both feet in bounds on a deep throw from Palmer. Most people will continue to be on Larry Fitzgerald and now on John Brown after his big game last week. In a plum matchup and with his nearly bare-minimum cost, I like Floyd to return value. The Palmer-Floyd stack could be a difference-maker on Monday Night Football.
