In large-field best ball contests where we are competing with thousands of entrants, we want to maximize our chances of hitting a high-end outcome since a large percentage of the prize pool is allotted to first place. (Underdog’s Best Ball Mania V specifically includes flatter payouts that make Week 16 equally as important. Our own Pat Thorman and Jack Miller discussed the 2024 NFL schedule as a whole if attacking offenses with both weeks in mind.)

And as Mike Leone noted in his initial Best Ball Manifesto, our ability to win a 470-person field can increase by ~50% by game stacking in Week 17. It logically makes sense, too: The only guaranteed information during the Championship Round, regardless of who starts the year for every team, are the franchises squaring off in that specific week. And that guarantee alone is worth correlating for an edge.

With the NFL schedule officially released, John Daigle tiered the best Week 17 matchups to stack throughout best ball drafts.
