Yahoo Sports DFS Targets

Are you chasing one more win? Do you need to erase a bitter season long playoff loss? We can all be week 16 champions! We’ll be getting a little chalky, chasing performances and shooting for the stars in this week’s rundown.






Russell Wilson – Seattle – $33

KC -2.5 at SEA, 54.5
Wilson’s efficiency has been off the charts this season. That includes a four touchdown game against San Francisco where he completed just 11 passes and they won 43-16. Kansas City brings shootout potential to the table even if Seattle tries to control the game on the ground. Wilson will need to create and finish big plays on Sunday night.

Jared Goff – L.A. Rams – $30

LAR -14.5 at ARI, 44.5
Goff has been bad. The Rams are still playing to secure a first round bye and they need their signal caller to get some confidence and rhythm back this weekend. With Todd Gurley questionable, this feels like a good spot for Sean McVey to work his magic. Goff threw for 354 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Rams 34-0 week two win against Arizona.

Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago – $28

CHI -4 at SF, 43
The weird stack of the weekend is Trubisky with his two running backs. He’s spread the wealth offensively this season and this is a chance to save a little money with a safe floor at QB. A few weeks removed from his shoulder injury, Trubisky was solid last week completing 20-of-28 passes for 235-yards and two touchdowns.

Running Backs

Jordan Howard – Chicago – $22

Howard and his running mate, Tarik Cohen ($19), set up nicely to dominate looks for the Bears offense. Cohen leads the team in targets (87) and receptions (68) while Howard has a 216-88 advantage in rushing attempts; the big play maker and the closer.

Sony Michel – New England – $20

BUF at NE -13.5, 44.5
Michel has 33 rushing attempts the last two weeks, but has only produced 57 and 58 rushing yards. The Patriots have dealt with and moved on from many injuries, however, losing Josh Gordon and having an aging Rob Gronkowski puts the running backs in the spotlight this weekend.

Elijah McGuire – N.Y. Jets – $16

GB -3 at NYJ, 46.5
The Packers held the Bears backfield in check last week as Chicago only managed 100 yards on 29 carries as a team. The new leading man in the Jets backfield is in a good spot at home against a defense that has allowed 124.4-yards rushing per game on the season. McGuire handled 17 and 18 carries the last two weeks and has the ability to contribute in the passing game.

Jaylen Samuels – Pittsburgh – $14

PIT at NO -6, 53
His price didn’t change despite the uncertainty of James Conner who has yet to step on the practice field as of Friday morning. Samuels caught seven passes two weeks ago against Oakland and his ability to rack up total yards is appealing against a Saints defense that has the number one rush defense in the league. Christian McCaffrey hauled in eight receptions for 67-yards on Monday night.

Wide Receivers

Tyreek Hill – Kansas City – $31

The star I’m leaning towards this weekend is Hill. He can beat any secondary and we’ve seen K.C. wow us under the lights this season.

Robert Woods – L.A. Rams – $25

Woods is as steady as they come. While he’s on the edge of is his price worth it with only one 20-plus point fantasy performance this season, he ran the majority of his routes last week from the slot which should keep him away from Patrick Peterson. Woods is worth it with or without Goff in your lineup.

Julian Edelman – New England – $20

I like Tom Brady’s safety blanket as well this weekend. His combined totals the last two weeks on 23 targets are 16 receptions for 174-yards and a touchdown.



Alshon Jeffery – Philadelphia – $

17 HOU at PHI -1.5, 46
The bromance between Nick Foles and Jeffery is real. His postseason lines last year were 5-61, 5-85-2 and 8-73-1. Last week he dropped eight for 160 on the Rams. Buy into the brotherly love.





Robby Anderson – N.Y. Jets – $15

All it takes is one. Sam Darnold put together as complete of a performance as a rookie could against the Texans within this Jets offense. Anderson has cashed in the last two weeks and in this price range a worthy WR3.





Robert Foster – Buffalo – $13

From the shadows Foster has emerged as Josh Allen’s number one target after posting back-to-back 100-yard receiving games.





Tight Ends



Eric Ebron – Indianapolis – $20

NYG at IND -9.5, 48
Ebron has the third most targets inside the red zone this season (20) and leads all TE’s in touchdown receptions with 12.

Evan Engram – N.Y. Giants – $15

With Odell Beckham Jr. out, Eli Manning has spread the wealth among his wide-outs. Engram caught eight-of-12 targets for 75-yards last week and is the one target to buy in the Giants passing game.
