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.


Andrew Luck – Indianapolis – $30

IND at NYJ -2.5, O/U 45
General Luck has attempted 121 passes the last two weeks. The Colts visit a league average Jets defense this weekend; 16th in pass yards against and tied 15th in rush yards against. There’s no hesitation with putting everything on his shoulder. Indy is only averaging 74.4 yards rushing per-game which means Luck will chip away at the Jets secondary.

Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay – $26

TB at ATL -3.5, O/U 57.5

The wait and see approach can backfire. Winston returns to a plush matchup against a Falcons defense that is giving up 32.6 points per-game and 277.2 yards through the air. The only team giving up more points is the Buccaneers. An added bonus is that Winston was able to return ahead of their bye-week to get in two weeks of first team reps.

Baker Mayfield – Cleveland – $26

LAC -1 at CLE, O/U 44.5
Mayfield has attempted 41 and 43 passes in his first two starts. While the Browns defense is better and they won a 12-9 slugfest against division foe Baltimore, don’t forget that shootout in Oakland. They’ll need Mayfield to match a potent Chargers offense.

Running Backs

Sony Michel - $26 and James White - $25 – New England

KC at NE -3, O/U 59.5
We get to dip our toes into the Sunday Night pool on Yahoo. Kareem Hunt ($27) rounds out the Sunday night RB trio. Michel and White both have held value as White has 18 receptions over the last two weeks and Michel is averaging 21.5 carries, 105 yards and a touchdown. Fade or play, what will win the day?

Marshawn Lynch – Oakland – $18

SEA -3 vs. OAK, O/U 48
It happened again, a team with Lynch in the backfield threw an interception from one-yard out. Lynch gets to lineup across from Seattle in London this weekend. Beast Mode is coming off his worst outing of the season as the Raiders scored 10 points against the Chargers. Prior to last week Lynch had carried the ball 18, 19 and 20 times. The Seahawks are giving up the fourth most rushing yards in the NFL this season (128 yards). Skittles for everyone!

Nyheim Hynes – Indianapolis – $18

Hynes was given 15 carries last week, but the value comes from the passing game. As noted above with Luck’s passing attempts, Hynes has receiving lines of 9-63-2 and 7-45 the last two weeks.

Wide Receivers

Emmanuel Sanders – Denver – $20

LAR -7 at DEN, O/U 52.5
Sanders caught 9-of-14 targets against the Jets after the Broncos feel behind and leaned on Case Keenum. Against the number one offense in total yards and third most points scored, they’ll be playing catchup. However, Keenum has gone without throwing a touchdown pass in three of their five games this season.

Doug Baldwin – Seattle – $17

The Seahawks has throttled back their offense and are running the ball close to 58-percent of the time. They shouldn’t have a problem running it on the Raiders, but you have to believe Baldwin will have his moment. Russell Wilson has to hook up his boy at some point right?

Chester Rodgers – Indianapolis – $12

If T.Y. Hilton is out again capitalize on the pass attempts. Rodgers has seen 11 targets in back-to-back games and caught eight each week.

Josh Reynolds – L.A. Rams – $10

Another if play as Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp are both in concussion protocol. Someone has to play alongside Robert Woods. Reynolds stepped into the lineup after halftime last week and caught two passes for 39 yards and rushed once for 10 yards.
