Yahoo Sports DFS and Watch List Options

Yahoo Sports provides weekly DFS and an overall Yahoo Cup for the NFL season. We’ll try and find players who will outperform their value and give you flexibility with your lineups. At the end we’ll take a look at week seven for players to stream or even pick up ahead of this week’s waiver claims.




Carson Wentz – Philadelphia – $31
NYG at PHI -5.5, o/u 47
The Eagles offense is in a prime bounce back position against the Giants. Wentz did not throw a touchdown pass for the first time this season against New Orleans and he topped it off with three interceptions and 156 yards. Philly’s playoff hopes are fading and they can’t afford to get caught in a sloppy NFC East game.

Cam Newton – Carolina – $31
SEA at CAR -3.5, 46.5
Newton has been very stable this season. I expect him to be all in after they just missed the go-ahead two point conversion at Detroit last weekend. That means after two quiet weeks in the run game we’ll get the full Newton against Seattle.





Running Backs

Matt Breida – San Francisco – $27
SF at TB -3, 54
In basketball DFS there is a stars and scrubs philosophy; pay up for the stars and throw a couple darts. With the Thanksgiving slate, this weekend has that feel for the NFL. Breida is one of the backs to look at if you’re trying to build a more balanced lineup. Breida has battled nagging injuries all season long and should be rejuvenated enough after the bye to take advantage of the leaky Bucs’ defense.

Marlon Mack – Indianapolis – $27
MIA at IND -7.5, 51
Since Mack has emerged as the Colts feature runner, he has had two 100-yard rushing games and scored five TD’s overall the last four weeks. Miami is giving up 142 yards rushing this season. Play your Colts this weekend.





Peyton Barber – Tampa Bay – $17

SF at TB
The best option at quarterback for the Bucs’ might just involving rotating starts between Ryan Fitzpatrick and Jamies Winston. Barber could feature more with Winston under center after last week’s 18-106-1 outing.





Josh Adams – Philadelphia – $13

The only bright spot for the Eagles on Sunday was Adams. Doug Pederson held true to his comments about working in the undrafted rookie from Notre Dame. Going 7-53-1 against a stout Saints defense is impressive.





Wide Receivers





Stephon Diggs – Minnesota – $25

GB at MIN -3.5, 47.5
Diggs has feasted on two good defenses the last two weeks posting lines of 10-119-1 and 13-126-1 against the Saints and Bears. Playing from behind has added to his totals along with Adam Thielen’s two worst games of the year. You know what we do with stud player’s whose price dropped from last week, click and forget.





Keenan Allen – L.A. Chargers – $23

LAR at ARI -13, 44
Allen has scored in back-to-back weeks after having just one all season. This weekend sets up for the Chargers to feast early in the passing game and let Melvin Gordon shut it down late.





Emmanuel Sanders – Denver – $22

PIT -3 at DEN, 46.5
Sanders could not get open early and salvaged a lost day with a 38-yard reception on their final drive. He’s still the focal point of the Broncos passing game and I’d expect the Broncos to scheme some early shots for the former Steeler’ so they can get him and the passing game on track.





Golden Tate – Philadelphia – $15

Tate saw eight targets last week catching five for 48 yards. I’ll take a shot on some name brand WR’s (Doug Baldwin $18) as my WR2/3 this week, because you’re really going to have to hit a lottery ticket to figure out which below $20 target is going off.





Tight Ends




Jack Doyle – Indianapolis – $17

Playing George Kittle ($27) is looking good this weekend. Down the list Doyle is an average price play who is battling Eric Ebron ($20) for looks, however, Ebron duded (zero targets) last weekend. Both Colts TE’s are worth a shot this weekend.




Cameron Brate – Tampa Bay – $13

SF at TB
O.J. Howard was lost for the season with an ankle injury. Brate earned his contract catching TD’s from Winston the last two years and the duo gets a chance to hook up again this weekend.





Week 13 Sneak Peek





There are no more bye weeks.

Malcom Brown could be a worthy late season filler if the Rams clinch. They didn’t play their stars at all in the preseason and I don’t think Sean McVay would hesitate to rest them in week 16. He also saw early red zone carries against Kansas City.

Defenses to stream: Green Bay, Tennessee, Philadelphia and Kansas City.

Odds from as of 11/23/18.
