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.
