Stacks are usually necessary in order to win these large-field DFS tournaments like FanDuel's $3M NFL Sunday Million contest. You get double the points from your quarterback tossing it to a running back or wide receiver or tight end - it's simple math, folks.
Let's take a look a look at who we're rolling out this week.
1. New Orleans Saints (Drew Brees, Alvin Kamara, Michael Thomas) at New York Giants

The Saints opened as 4.5-point favorites this week, and that's saying a lot considering they're on the road against a New York Giants team coming off their first win of the season. The Brees-Kamara-Thomas trio has been unbelievable throughout the first three weeks of this season, so with the Vegas-backing on their team as a whole there's no need to hop off the train just yet.
2. New York Giants (Eli Manning, Saquon Barkley, Sterling Shepard) vs. New Orleans Saints

Nope, we're not done with the Giants/Saints game just yet. The Saints defense has allowed 103 points this season (most in NFL) and just lost their top cornerback Patrick Robinson to a broken ankle -- this is going to allow Shepard to have a monster game over the middle of the field, especially with Evan Engram sidelined. Manning will benefit from the success of his receivers while Barkley racks up the yards in every facet of the game.
3. Cincinnati Bengals (Andy Dalton, Gio Bernard, AJ Green) at Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons defense has lost key members of their personnel through the first three weeks of the season. Dalton and Green (assuming he's fully healthy) should have a big day against a secondary that's without both of their starting safeties. Bernard, as we highlighted earlier this week, gets an excellent matchup as a pass-catching back -- ATL has allowed just under 16 targets per game to running backs this season.
Note: If Green is limited, Tyler Boyd would make for an exceptional replacement.
