Yahoo Strategies & Top Plays for Week 10

OVERVIEW OF HOW YAHOO WORKS VS OTHER DFS PLATFORMS:

I have been playing daily fantasy since 2013, mainly on DraftKings and FanDuel. But in recent years, I have added playing more on SuperDraft and Yahoo Daily Fantasy. The biggest benefit to playing Yahoo DFS is the pricing can be a little softer or easier to identify values, which then lets you pay up for the studs on the slate. 

Scoring is very similar to Fanduel as it is .5 point per reception or half-point PPR. You will draft 10 positions in your lineup. This includes:

1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 DST

 

QUARTERBACKS 

STUDS:

  • Patrick Mahomes, $38 – Clearly the best QB on the slate in a great match-up with the Jaguars. Has a great chance to be the QB1 Sunday.
  • Justin Fields, $33 – Even as the highest-scoring QB last week, his price did not raise on SuperDraft. Now he has an amazing match-up against the Lions’ defense.
  • Tua Tagovailoa, $33 – I’m going to keep playing Tua and his receivers every week as that offense is in rhythm and puts up points.
  • Case Keenum – $23 (assuming Josh Allen is ruled out) – This is more a play of what it allows you to do for the rest of your lineup since he’s nearly min. QB price.
  • Others – Dak Prescott – $30, Trevor Lawrence – $27, Daniel Jones – $26

 

RUNNING BACKS 

STUDS:

  • Derrick Henry, $37 – The Broncos’ pass defense is stout, but their run defense can be attacked. The Titans run through Henry.
  • Saquon Barkley, $36 – Has the best RB match-up of the week against the Texans’ run defense and coming off a bye week.
  • Travis Etienne, $26 – After a week where he got 28 carries for over 100 yards and 2 TDs, the Jaguars are committed to feeding him the ball.
  • Dameon Pierce, $23 – Another RB that is getting fed the ball and the workhorse.
  • Others – Nick Chubb – $37, Josh Jacobs – $30, Alvin Kamara – $31 

VALUES:

  • Tony Pollard – $23
  • Aaron Jones – $21
  • David Montgomery – $21
  • Kareem Hunt – $15
  • Jaylen Warren – $10

 

WIDE RECEIVERS

STUDS:

  • Choose your favorite Stud(s) – all these alpha receivers are in great spots to put up a ceiling performance. I’ll have at least one of these receivers in my lineups.
    • Cooper Kupp – $39 (only if Stafford is IN)
    • Tyreek Hill – $37
    • Justin Jefferson – $36
    • Stefon Diggs – $36 (less interested at this price with Keenum as QB)
    • Deandre Hopkins – $31 (only if Murray is IN)
  • Others to consider or stack:
    • Davante Adams, $25 – This appears to be a glaring misprice on Yahoo for Adams, who now should get even more targets with Hunter Renfroe and Darren Waller on IR.
    • Amon-Ra St. Brown, $20 – Another Yahoo misprice in my opinion. ASB has a 33% target rate and many other underlying metrics suggest another breakout game is coming soon. Why not against this Bears’ defense?
    • CeeDee Lamb, $24  – Lamb may be the forgotten guy in this range. But another week with Dak back could mean we finally start to see some Lamb breakout games.
    • Amari Cooper, $24 – If you think the Dolphins play from ahead against the Browns, Cooper is the perfect bring-back in Dolphins’ stacks.
    • Christian Kirk, $21 – Playing in the perfect game environment to rack up receiving yards and fantasy points.
    • Mack Hollins, $10 – My favorite value you on the slate with Hunter Renfroe and Darren Waller now on IR.
  • Others to consider or stack:  Jaylen Waddle – $30, Chris Olave – $26
  • Note:  This is an excellent place to look for correlation and stack at least one wide receiver with your quarterback.

VALUES:

  • Allen Lazard – $18
  • JuJu Smith-Schuster – $18
  • Darnell Mooney – $17
  • Gabe Davis – $17
  • Courtland Suton – $16
  • Diontae Johnson – $15
  • Chase Claypool – $15
  • Donovan Peoples-Jones – $15
  • Kalif Raymond – $10

TIGHT ENDS 

STUDS:

  • Travis Kelce, $32 – The best tight end on the slate and not even close.
  • Greg Dulchich, $18 – My favorite of the value tight ends this week. Coming off a bye, Russ could look to get him more involved.
  • TJ Hockenson, $17 – Hockenson got great usage in his first week with the Vikings. May be a great underneath option for Cousins against that tough Bills’ defense.

VALUES:

  • Zach Ertz – $16
  • Dawson Knox – $15
  • Evan Engram – $15
  • Pat Friermuth – $13
  • Robert Tonyan – $13
  • Cole Kmet – $13
  • Foster Moreau – $11
  • Dalton Schutz – $10

FLEX 

  •  Try to target a player in a high total game to stack up for more correlation or a player with an extreme multiplier in a good spot. Either way, try to target a player that has a good chance to reach their 100-yard bonus and find the endzone.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS:

Each week, I will examine the winning lineups in the large Yahoo tournament to see what strategies worked. Every season can have its own nuances, so we’ll track data to make sure we have an edge on the field.
