Breaking it all down.

In this series of articles, I’ll be referencing the players directly correlated to the QB as “primary stacks,” any other correlation will be counted as a “secondary stack.”

This lineup features a two-player BUF QB/WR primary stack, spending $15,400. For secondary stacks, we have a three-player CLE@NE RB/RB/TE, spending $13,300. We’ll also be keeping track of the FLEX spot, and this lineup goes with an RB, spending $4,700. In total, the lineup used $49,900 in salary and carried a 121.8% ownership percentage sum.

Takeaways and observations.

This lineup goes with a smaller primary stack and a contrarian secondary stack utilizing RB’s opposing each other from the same game. QB/WR (22.8%) was the most popular stack construction in this tournament, followed by QB/WR/OPP 12.9%.
