DFS Karma Underdog Fantasy Best Ball Mania II

Underdog Fantasy is the biggest and best Best ball platform, with thousands of users and massive cash tournaments for you to take advantage of. Best ball is the easiest way to play fantasy football. All you have to do is draft your team and Underdog Fantasy will do the rest for you. They’ll set your optimal lineup each week based on who on your roster scores the most points, meaning you’ll never have to fret start/sit decisions early Sunday morning ever again. The most proven way to win these large tournaments is called “stacking”. Stacking is when you draft multiple players from the same offense. The philosophy behind this is if that offense “hits” and has a great offensive year, then your team will reap the benefits of having every piece of a productive offense and you should outscore your opponents who did not stack. 

This series of articles will identify the most undervalued offenses to stack that are currently being under drafted on Underdog Fantasy and could potentially win you some money in season-long tournament play. 

Indianapolis Colts

Outside of running back Jonathan Taylor, no offensive skill player for the Colts is being drafted in the Top-20 of their respective position. Jonathan Taylor carries an ADP of RB7 and 9.1 overall. If drafters truly believe Jonathan Taylor is worth a Top-10 pick on Underdog Fantasy, then the assumption stands that the Colts offense will be above average, at the least. There are three players on the Colts offense that I’m targeting outside of Jonathan Taylor for a best ball stack. 

  1. Carson Wentz – The newly acquired franchise quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts was once on an MVP level in the 2017 season. Wentz is a much better quarterback for fantasy than he has been for NFL wins. Through the first seven games of the 2020 season, Wentz was the QB7 overall for fantasy leagues–so he still has high-end fantasy potential. Wentz was at his best as a Philadelphia Eagle when then-offensive coordinator Frank Reich was calling the shots. Reich has reunited with Wentz in Indianapolis. If anyone can get Wentz back on track, it’s Reich. Wentz also steps behind Indianapolis’ all-pro offensive line, a strong run game, and complementary receiving options that should play to his skill set. With an ADP of QB22 and 163.3 overall on Underdog Fantasy, Wentz is a massive sleeper in your best ball drafts. Target him as your QB1 at a QB2 discount. 
  2. Michael Pittman – The 2020 rookie struggled to get going due to injuries last season. With a full offseason of health and another year in the Frank Reich system, Pittman should be much improved in Year 2. Give him a quarterback in Carson Wentz who likes to target big-body wide receivers (Pittman is 6’4”) and this is a match made in fantasy football heaven. With an ADP of WR47 and 93.4 overall on Underdog Fantasy, I’m all over Pittman as a potential breakout WR2 for fantasy.
  3. Nyheim Hines – Jonathan Taylor is the “sexy” name at running back, but Hines is the far better value. Since Underdog Fantasy is a half-PPR format, Hines will still have a lot of value as a pass-catching running back. While Hines was not consistent last season, he finished as the RB20 overall in half-PPR formats. You don’t need consistency for a cheap best ball stack, so Hines is the perfect target late in your drafts for a guy that could have some spike, week-winning performances. His current ADP is RB44 and 142.9 overall. At that value, you should be targeting Hines every draft, especially if you are a Jonathan Taylor manager.
