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 four-player LAR QB/WR/TE/OPP-WR primary stack, spending $24,000. We have a two-player SEA@ARI RB/WR secondary stack, spending $12,700. We’ll also be keeping track of the FLEX spot, and this lineup goes with a WR, spending $9,700. In total, the lineup used $50,000 in salary and carried a 78.9% ownership percentage sum.

Takeaways and observations.

QB/WR (19.5%) was the most popular stack construction in this tournament, followed by QB/WR/OPP (9.5%). There was a lot of variety at the top, as the top 4 lineups in this tournament all featured different QBs. Jauan Jennings was the clear differentiator for this lineup, scoring 27.4 fantasy points at 0.2% ownership.
