whether you play Daily Fantasy on Yahoo! Before you try it out or try it out for the first time, this weekly column will take an early look at the DFS landscape, revealing the people I love to build squads around, stars that fade, underrated plays and bargain basket options to help you build a better team.
The basic building blocks of the lineup
Josh Allen ($41) @ Kansas City Chiefs
Top quarterbacks have been the DFS’ most consistent building blocks for the season opener, and this week two of them are facing each other in a match with the highest total on the list with ease (54.0 points). Allen was the top scorer in Fantasia last week If you just come back the first halfAnd Buffalo will not calm down after the end of the first half against the Chiefs, who knocked them out of the playoffs. There’s a real chance of no hits in this game, and KC has allowed 7th place on the most fantasy points for middle players this season. Allen is somehow averaging more impulsive yards and increasing 1.5 extra yards for each pass attempt Compared to last season, and you just tease him in this DFS match to be a contrarian in the championships.
ramundre stevenson ($26) @ Cleveland Browns
Stevenson led every linebacker last week when He handled all 27 regular budget opportunities after, after Damian Harris He left with a hamstring injury. The other RB players will contribute in Week 6, but Stevenson will make an appearance again with Harris out regardless of who starts in the New England quarterback. The Patriots get defended by the Browns allowing for 5.3 YPC, which is a maximum EPA/dash (0.17) by a wide margin and the third-largest fantasy score for a contestant appearance. Cleveland also has He averaged the fourth most combined points During their games this season, the Stevenson is a rising star.
Marquis Brown ($24) @ Seattle Seahawks
Brown saw double-digit goals in four consecutive games, with an average NFL rise of 12.3 during that time (linked to cooper cup). It must be busy again on Sunday with DeAndre Hopkins Serves the last game of his suspension and faces the Seahawks defense allowing for an NFL lead of 8.6 YPA and second most EPA/passing (0.25) this season. This game has The second highest total for the week at 51.0 points – The next highest is five points lower. The Seahawks are essentially tied for the second most aggregate points scored in 2022.
Brown’s salary this week is still less than Jaylen Waddellwho has seen more than six goals in just one game this season and is likely to get Skylar Thompson Like his QB this week. Expect another big fantasy performance from Brown before Hopkins returns.
star to fade
James Robinson ($22) @ Indianapolis Colts
Travis Etienne she has Captured the back domain of Jacksonville Last two games, and this week the Jaguars face the Colts defense via pass funnel which ranks second in the DVOA against running. Running appearances averaged 24.0 carry for just 79.2 yards (3.3 YPC) over five games against Indianapolis, including a 23-for-64 performance against Robinson earlier this season. on the wrong side of unequal time sharing, Struggling back from hock surgery And on a team with one of the week’s lowest implied totals, Robinson appears to be playing poor DFS with a salary sandwiched between Leonard Fortnite And the dolphin cook.
Jeno Smith ($28) for Arizona Cardinals
It’s shocking that Smith was the sixth-place finisher in the QB fantasy world opening this year, but he also wasn’t too risky. Seattle is shooting at a higher rate than they did Russell WilsonAnd the Seahawks’ schedule wasn’t so easy against the Broncos already, 49ers and saints. It was Smith Incredibly accurate in deep passesmakes use of two great receivers (DK Metcalfe She looks a lot healthier than last season) and Leading the NFL in CPOE. The Seahawks remarkably rank first in attack in the DVOA.
Sunday seems like a good match, with Seattle getting the second most yards per game while simultaneously allowing in the most. The Seahawks take on Arizona’s defense with a funnel pass that ranks among the league leaders in the EPA/dash so far toward the bottom of the NFL in EPA/pass (Seattle has also lost its lead again this season). Smith is off to a fancy start and looks particularly attractive at this week’s DFS.
Press Hall ($19) at Green Bay Packers
Hall was No. 4 last week, and he still doesn’t have the top 15 salary. The rookie had the most shots inside the five-yard line among all RBs last week, as Michael Carter‘s snap% keeps rejecting every game. Significantly arranged hole The three positions Of all the running backs this season in goals, receiving yards, yards per lane, breakaway run rate, missed tackles/attempts, and yards per touch. Planes have become heavy with Zach Wilson And this week, get defended by the Packers who are ranked 30th in the DVOA.
Jeff Wilson Jr. ($19) @ Atlanta Falcons
Wilson ranks in the top five in Rush yards above expectationssandwiched between I will be Barclay And the Nick Chubb. Lost some time to play tiffin coleman Last week, but that mostly happened with the game getting out of hand, averaging 17.8 touches over the last four games. 49ers are extremely heavy It is favored against the Atlanta defense allowing for the second largest EPA/rush of the season, making Wilson undervalued in the DFS.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($11) for Buffalo Bills
Valdes-Scantling led Kansas City in running trails and goals last week, jojo smith schuster Looks fully washed and Mikol Hardman He suffers from a heel injury. MVS is close to minimum DFS though I get good targets from it Patrick Mahomes In a match with higher/lower this week by a wide margin.
Kid Otton ($10) at Pittsburgh Steelers
Cameron Pratt He could come back against the Steelers, but Otton may have passed him on the Tampa Bay depth chart anyway. Otton ran the most road between all the tight ends last week, with More than a third comes from the desired aperture. Otton also led Tampa Bay in goals, with Chris Goodwin Sitting a lot in the second half is a worrying sign that he is not healthy. The Otton is an obvious choice at the lower end of DFS, especially in the weak narrow end position.
