Welcome back to Stacking the Deck.

This season at 4for4 we will be providing subscribers with Value Reports and Stack Value Reports that value every stack in terms of projected points/$. We also use our Adjusted Fantasy Points Against (aFPA) metric, which has been adjusted to reflect offseason transactions, heavily in the column.

What’s new this year is we know have the have the advantage of putting into practice two great offseason studies from my colleague, Senior DFS Editor, Chris Raybon: The Definitive Guide to Stacking on FanDuel and The Definitive Guide to Stacking on DraftKings.

Using stacks to pivot off the chalk is great. What's often just as good is stacking to use the chalk to your advantage with different lineup construction.There are many ways to win a tournament but it is not plus EV to simply roster low owned plays and ignore some of the best ones. We will continue to focus on positive correlations in this column, but also put a higher emphasis on leverage plays in GPPs this season.

Anyways, hopefully you have been following along here. We had some nice hits last week, including Jameis Winston-Mike Evans, Andy Dalton-A.J. Green, and of course Spencer Ware all over the board.

The following are my top stacks for Week 8 on both FanDuel and DraftKings:

FanDuel Stacks

Andrew Luck ($7,900) & T.Y. Hilton ($7,800) vs. KC

Quarterback and WR1 have a .45 correlation on FanDuel, the strongest of all positions. Indianapolis is at home, and this game is expected to shoot out at 50 total points (second-highest total of the week). Luck has a ceiling of 31.6, second at the position in our projections. Hilton has seen nine or more targets in every game this year and has scored a touchdown in four of the past five. Not to mention he should avoid Marcus Peters, who does not travel into the slot, which is where T.Y. runs over 50 percent of his routes. The Chiefs rank 20th against WRs in our signature metric Adjusted Fantasy Points Against (aFPA). The Luck-Hilton stack comes in at number-five in our  FanDuel Stack Value Reports.
