Yahoo Sports DFS and Season-long Streaming Options WK 13 2018
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.
Phillip Rivers – L.A. Chargers – $32
LAC at PIT, -3.5, o/u 51.5
Rivers has thrown multiple touchdown passes in every game this season. With Melvin Gordon doubtful, Rivers will need to bring some of that completion magic from last week’s route of Arizona to the steel city.
Deshaun Watson – Houston – $32
CLE at HOU -5.5, 47
Cleveland can end the streak. The Texans will be pressed at home and that is why rolling with Watson this weekend makes sense. There’s always the added bonus you get something out of his legs, but the stability comes from the explosive passing game that has worked in Demaryius Thomas nicely.
Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay – $31
ARI at GB -14, 43.5
Rivers completed 28-of-29 passes on the Cardinals defense last week. From coaching questions to a knee injury it feels like Rodgers hasn’t lived up to his fantasy expectations. The man has thrown one interception all year and gets all the DFS love this weekend.
Aaron Jones – Green Bay – $26
ARI at GB
The one drawback to playing Rodgers this weekend is game flow. It’s possible the Packers control the game through Jones who has been a total yards machine the last three weeks averaging 126.6 yards per-game.
Austin Ekeler – L.A. Chargers – $22
LAC at PIT
If Gordon is out, Ekeler has proven he can handle the work load and produce.
Chris Carson – Seattle – $19
SF at SEA -10, 46
Seattle should feast on the ground against San Francisco. Carson has carried the ball 17 and 16 times over the last two weeks while scoring twice. Enjoy the volume.
Tarik Cohen – Chicago – $19
Kenny Golladay – Detroit – $21
LAR -10 at DET, 55
Over the last three games Golladay has received 36 targets. While the Lions have tried to run, run and run some more, they’ll need Matt Stafford to create plays downfield against the Rams Sunday.
Josh Gordon – New England – $18
MIN at NE -5, 49.5
Gordon hasn’t caught more than five passes in a game this season. What he does bring is big play ability and we should see that against the Vikings this weekend.
Chris Godwin – Tampa Bay – $17
T.Y. Hilton – Indianapolis – $16
IND -4 at JAC, 47
Hilton went 3-77 in their first meeting against Jacksonville. Now that he is as healthy as he is going to be down the stretch, Hilton has posted 9-155-2 and 7-125 lines the last two weeks. The price is super nice.
Eric Ebron – Indianapolis – $21
Kyle Rudolph – Minnesota – $15
MIN at NE
Rudolph has watched Kirk Cousins attempt the second most passes in the NFL (447) and he has a quiet 43-425-2 line overall this season. In New England I expect Cousins to fling it around and last week Rudolph hauled in 7-for-63.
