9 Best Ball Stacks to Draft (2024 Fantasy Football)

9 Best Ball Stacks to Draft (2024 Fantasy Football)

Best Ball drafts are once again open, not even waiting for the Super Bowl before catering to those sickos among us who need to scratch that drafting itch. On average now, 10.5 out of every 12 teams in a draft are stacking to some degree. It’s a proven method to give your roster more upside. The only question is how you attack it.

In this article, we’ll look at Underdog Big Board ADP to peruse the high-priced and low-priced stacks you might want to consider in this very early Best Ball landscape.

2024 Best Ball Stacks based on ADP

High Priced

Philadelphia Eagles

One of the most expensive stacks in 2023 has gotten only marginally cheaper for 2024 with DeVonta Smith dropping a round and Jalen Hurts dropping half a round. Dallas Goedert is 30 spots lower and might turn out to be a good value pick if Kellen Moore utilizes him more vertically than previous offenses have, with Goedert sometimes confined to the screen game. At the moment the three highest-priced Eagles all land perfectly for drafters at the 1.12 turn, so try to get different elsewhere on your roster to have leverage come the playoffs.

Name Team Position ADP
A.J. Brown PHI WR 12.8
Jalen Hurts PHI QB 33.1
DeVonta Smith PHI WR 36.9
Dallas Goedert PHI TE 108.3

Houston Texans

Hot on the heels of a very impressive campaign, you’d be forgiven for approaching 2024 drafts with the mentality “I want to draft a lot of Texans” but you might slow down on that when you see that Nico Collins is a top-16 pick, with Tank Dell and CJ Stroud also going inside the first five rounds. At 9.8 rushing yards per game, it’ll be hard for Stroud to compete with the expensive quarterbacks, and if we get healthy seasons from Joe Burrow, Kyler Murray, Justin Fields, Justin Herbert and Anthony Richardson, it might be that this price is too steep to pay.

Name Team Position ADP
Nico Collins HOU WR 15.3
Tank Dell HOU WR 34
C.J. Stroud HOU QB 52.8
Devin Singletary HOU RB 116.2
Dalton Schultz HOU TE 136.8
Dameon Pierce HOU RB 176.7

Cincinnati Bengals

Nothing went right for the ‘premier stack’ of 2023, with Joe Burrow starting the year injured, before succumbing to a season-ending thumb injury in Week 11. Burrow averaged 14.7 points and only finished as a QB1 on four occasions, but with the Bengals finishing fourth in the AFC North they’ll be assured an easy strength of schedule in 2024 and if the Bengal franchise tag Tee Higgins then they can absolutely bounce back. The hardest part will be deciding if Tee Higgins is worth the pick after two years of averaging 9.39 half PPR points in games with Ja’Maar Chase playing and 16.92 in games without Chase.

Name Team Position ADP
Ja’Marr Chase CIN WR 5.2
Tee Higgins CIN WR 42.2
Joe Mixon CIN RB 73.7
Joe Burrow CIN QB 78.5
Chase Brown CIN RB 113.5
Tyler Boyd CIN WR 177.8

Buffalo Bills

Stefon Diggs has gone from going twelve picks ahead of Josh Allen in 2023 to dropping to six picks later than him in 2024, and it’s possible that he deserves to drop further. Diggs was the only Bills receiver to see 100 targets but it was a very different story from one half of the year to the next. Between Weeks 1-9 Diggs caught 72% of his targets, but from Week 10 onwards only 54%. Diggs has struggled over the second half of the year for two consecutive years now and rumors are already beginning to swirl that he might need a change of scenery. Drafters are expecting Dalton Kincaid to take a leap forward, but Dawson Knox is unlikely to go anywhere, and it might be that Khalil Shakir is the best value stacking option of all of the Bills.

Name Team Position ADP
Josh Allen BUF QB 18.1
Stefon Diggs BUF WR 24.5
James Cook BUF RB 39
Dalton Kincaid BUF TE 74.1
Khalil Shakir BUF WR 119.9
Gabe Davis BUF WR 127.3

Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens went from being a team with very few stacking options to a far more appealing one, and while they spread things around and make it hard for fantasy managers in managed leagues, in best ball we can chase the ceiling outcomes that come week to week. Odell Beckham Jr. is a free agent and will likely only return if he takes a hefty pay cut, leaving plenty of snaps for Rashod Bateman in a contract year, yes we’ve been burned before, but at pick 197, there’s some appeal to a player attached to Lamar Jackson.

Name Team Position ADP
Lamar Jackson BAL QB 35.1
Zay Flowers BAL WR 49.6
Mark Andrews BAL TE 53.2
Keaton Mitchell BAL RB 168.4
Gus Edwards BAL RB 174.7
Isaiah Likely BAL TE 181.4
Justice Hill BAL RB 197.9
Rashod Bateman BAL WR 198.8
J.K. Dobbins BAL RB 207.3
Odell Beckham Jr. BAL WR 221.1

2024 Dynasty Fantasy Football Guide

Low-Priced

Arizona Cardinals

Things might change for the Cardinals if they draft the much-hyped Marvin Harrison Jr. giving Kyler Murray a true elite option out the gate, but for now, they look like a value with Marquise Brown languishing outside the top-100 as we await news of whether he will hit free agency or not. Trey McBride looks like a value here, with him having a breakout campaign yet only having three touchdowns, if he can find his way to double that in 2024 he’ll return cost and then some.

Name Team Position ADP
Trey McBride ARI TE 72.9
James Conner ARI RB 77.9
Kyler Murray ARI QB 96.1
Marquise Brown ARI WR 103.5
Michael Wilson ARI WR 157.4

Green Bay Packers

After finishing the season in an incredibly strong fashion and torching the moribund Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs, there was always going to be a significant rise in ADP for the young Green Bay Packers and their prices reflect things quite fairly. No player is going inside the top-50 but then five players come in the next 53 picks. Jordan Love spread the ball around enough that we don’t need to worry about getting all of the Packers receivers in one team, but instead, tell a narrative where the 2-3 we select outperform the rest and help propel our team to the top of leaderboards.

Name Team Position ADP
Jayden Reed GB WR 52.3
Aaron Jones GB RB 66.5
Christian Watson GB WR 84.5
Jordan Love GB QB 86.8
Romeo Doubs GB WR 103.8
Dontayvion Wicks GB WR 133.1
Luke Musgrave GB TE 135.5
Tucker Kraft GB TE 177
AJ Dillon GB RB 190.1

New York Giants

The Giants simply have to add a quality wide receiver if they expect Daniel Jones to return any semblance of value on his current contract, and preferably not a small slot-only type. For now, though, it does feel like there is value to be had in this Giants offense with Jones going at 173.5 and pending-free agent, Saquon Barkley the only player drafted inside the top 145. There aren’t many sure bets here, but once we get past pick 140 there aren’t too many anywhere on the draft board, and being able to shoe-horn in a late and cheap stack, is nearly always good roster construction.

Name Team Position ADP
Saquon Barkley NYG RB 19.9
Darren Waller NYG TE 147.1
Wan’Dale Robinson NYG WR 149.9
Daniel Jones NYG QB 173.5
Jalin Hyatt NYG WR 183.1
Darius Slayton NYG WR 220.4

Tennessee Titans

This isn’t one that too many people will be dying to click the buttons on, but let’s speculate for a moment that Bill Callahan can build an offensive line even close to the one he did in Cleveland, while his son, Bill, brings even an ounce of the Bengals explosivity to the offense. Perhaps Will Levis will take a leap with an offseason tailored to his strengths, rather than taking reps as the QB2 or even QB3 at times like he did in 2023. Perhaps the Titans even convince Treylon Burks that he is an adequate player… it’s a lot of speculation, but it’s a cheap stack in a division filled with potent offenses that could put them into pass-heavy scripts, and that alone is mildly intriguing.

Name Team Position ADP
Tyjae Spears TEN RB 79
DeAndre Hopkins TEN WR 80.2
Treylon Burks TEN WR 169.8
Chig Okonkwo TEN TE 190.5
Will Levis TEN QB 199.2
