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. 

Detroit Lions

I’m going to get this out of the way up front. I am a Detroit Lions fan and have been my entire life and even I know this offense is going to be bad, but it’s not going to be nearly as bad as it is currently being valued on Underdog Fantasy. The Lions have a terrible defense. A bad defense equals negative game scripts, which means the team is going to need to play from behind in the majority of their games. When teams play from behind, they tend to air out the ball and increase passing attempts. Even if the quarterback is Jared Goff, volume is king for fantasy football production. If the Lions’ offense performs even moderately better than the current ADP of their skill players indicates, then they’re going to be a great value in best ball this season. Chase the volume and reap the benefits of an undervalued Lions offense this year in best ball. 

Jared Goff, Quarterback –  Over the past four seasons, Jared Goff has finished as the QB18 (2020), QB15 (2019), QB7 (2018), and QB12 (2017). Goff has shown us the ability to be a fantasy QB1 in the past. Granted, his supporting cast was better, but let’s not forget that new Detroit Lions’ offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn knows how to call an offense, as partially evidenced by Justin Herbert’s dominance last season as a rookie. Goff is going to have to throw the ball early and often to keep the Lions in games. He is currently being drafted as the QB31 and 208.9 overall in Underdog Fantasy ADP. He’s extremely likely to outperform that ADP and finish as at least a fantasy QB2. You can draft him near the end of the draft and secure your QB2 in Underdog lineups for a dirt-cheap cost. I’d highly recommend drafting him, as he’s someone being drafted below their fantasy floor. 

D’Andre Swift, Running Back –  Did you know that D’Andre Swift finished as the RB18 in half-PPR formats as a rookie with only an average 37.9% snap share throughout the entire season? Swift does not need a workhorse role to outperform his current ADP of RB15 and 33.4 overall. With the Lions being thin on pass-catching options, I fully expect Swift’s volume in the passing game to increase this season and he could very well finish as a fantasy RB1 this season (Top-12). 

Tyrell Williams, Wide Receiver – Tyrell Williams is the definition of a high-upside flier late in your drafts. Williams sat out the 2020 season, but in 2019, Williams posted 42 receptions, 651 receiving yards and 6 receiving TDs in just 14 games. His best season came in 2016 as a San Diego Charger, where he posted 69 receptions for 1059 receiving yards and 7 receiving TDs. While Williams is unlikely to set the world on fire for fantasy this season, he’s worth the proverbial dart throw at his current value. He’s being drafted as the WR75 and 167.5 overall on Underdog Fantasy. He’s practically free in your drafts so you’ll never have to spend up to get him. You can interchange him with Breshad Perriman if you’d like, who is being drafted as the WR73 and 160.4 overall.
