Stacking players from the same team is a long-standing tradition in fantasy football. But how do we view truly stacking a team as opposed to pairing one player from a team with another? Vlad Sedler pointed this out in a recent tweet, which got my wheels turning.

This article takes aim at building some true, high upside, three-player stacks. We will do this by analyzing current BB10 ADPs, and utilizing some of the tools offered here at RotoViz.

Building Around Historical Win Rate Analysis

In February, Shawn Siegele published his article Go From Novice to Expert With the Best Ball Workshop – Lesson 1 Shows How to Boost Your Win Rate With a Rare QB HackIn his article, Shawn says:

“From 2015 to 2018, drafters who selected a QB in the first five rounds only won 6.5% of the time. Despite the presence of Patrick Mahomes as a generational talent, that win percentage fell in 2019.”

Shawn then covers the importance of not only taking your QB1 after round five, but also the importance of getting your QB2 no later than round 12.

Unsurprisingly, this aligns perfectly with the heat map provided to us by Mike Beers in the RotoViz Best Ball Win Rate Explorer tool. The first heat map below shows overall team win rates by draft position.
