Yahoo DFS Values and Avoids – Ryan Skolrud

by Ryan Skolrud

Its time for another week of fantasy football! Combing through the prices of players on Yahoo’s DFS platform, here are some of the best value players that I could find to help you in your pools today:

Yahoo DFS Values

Lamar Jackson – 31: After destroying MIA in week one, BAL faces a Cardinals defense missing its top 2 CBs

Russell Wilson – 30: In a possible shootout with PIT, Wilson should be able to exploit a PIT secondary that got shredded by Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Devin Singletary – 14: Should be getting more touches this week after playing 70% of the snaps week one.

Todd Gurley – 18: Could he really be this cheap? Even with a “smaller workload” Gurley should out perform the perceived value here.

Keenan Allen – 24: Mike Williams is not 100% and Hunter Henry is out. Rivers will lean on the veteran in the pass game.

Will Fuller – 15: With Ramsey shadowing Hopkins, Fuller should eat with AJ Bouye out for JAX

DK Metcalf – 13: Wilson looked his way more than Lockett in week one. With PIT giving up a ton to NE, their defense could struggle against the talented WRs of SEA.

Mark Andrews – 16: Is officially ACTIVE against ARI who is without its top 2 CBs. Plus matchup for the TE

Darren Waller – 13: OAK probably playing from behind today. Carr will target his TE weapon often.

Yahoo DFS Avoids

Tom Brady – 39: I understand its a cake matchup. NE may also abandon the pass and just run the ball after getting a big lead.

James Conner – 31: Seattle has done well to stop the run, though Conner could still get some production from receptions.

Austin Ekeler – 28: This seems like a little much for Ekeler even if he is the starter and feels like chasing last week’s points. I prefer to find value in other places this week.

DeAndre Hopkins – 34: Will be followed by Ramsey. I am not saying he wont play well, but Fuller could our produce at almost half the cost.

Antonio Brown – 27: We don’t know how much involvement he will have in the offense. Too much uncertainty for me to invest this week. even against MIA. (NE may be going run heavy)

TJ Hockenson – 17: Again, another player that feels like it would be chasing points to use.
