Yahoo Core Plays & Cheat Sheet - NFL DFS Contests 2019

Week 3 NFL DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheet for Yahoo

Welcome to the FC Insights Core Plays and Cheat Sheet Article for Yahoo.

In this post, we will be breaking down our top options and plays for Yahoo for each DFS week of the 2019-2020 NFL DFS season.

In this article, I am going to give you my four top players for Yahoo as well as my cheat sheet. My cheat sheet will include any player that I have more than 15% exposure to as of this writing on Yahoo.

Last Weeks Results

  1. Josh Allen (22.22 fantasy points)
  2. Josh Jacobs (9.90 fantasy points)
  3. Giovani Bernard (1.80 fantasy points)
  4. Mark Andrews (21.20 fantasy points)

Core Plays

QB-Jameis Winston-$23

I am calling a breakout game for Winston this week as he takes on a really bad Giants pass defense. This season the Giants have allowed 642 passing yards which is third highest in the NFL and five touchdowns. Each of the opposing quarterbacks the Giants have faced this season has produced at least 22 fantasy points and as a whole, they are allowing the third-most fantasy points per game to the position. What I love the most about Winston this week is we are getting him at a huge discount as he is only three dollars above the site minimum for the position.

RB-Dalvin Cook-$33

Cook is one of my favorite players in the NFL and I am so happy he is finally healthy as he is breaking out. Through the first two weeks of the season, Cooks has 265 rushing yards, three rushing touchdowns and five catches for 46 yards. Cook has produced at least 25 fantasy points in both of those games. This week we can expect a similar performance from Cook as he takes on a Raiders team that allowed the third-most rushing yards per game and ninth-most fantasy points per game to running backs last season.

WR-Nelson Agholor-$14

Agholor is too cheap with DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery both expected to be out. Last week with both of those players on the sideline for 99.9% of the game, Agholor saw 11 targets and turned those targets into eight catches for 107 yards and a score. The Lions are also a great match-up for Agholor as Agholor works primarily out of the slot and the Lions struggle to cover slot receivers.

TE-Greg Olsen-$16

Cam Newton is likely out this week but that doesn’t bother me when it comes to Olsen as Kyle Allen is a very good young quarterback. The match-up with the Cardinals is just too good for me to pass up as they have been destroyed by tight ends. The Cardinals have allowed each of the first two opposing teams starting tight end to produce at least 28 fantasy points this season and as a whole has allowed 15 catches for 244 yards and three scores to the position.
