Week 10 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. Derek Carr (19.56 fantasy points)
  2. DK Metcalf (24.00 fantasy points)
  3. Darren Waller (6.20 fantasy points)
  4. Browns (5.00 fantasy points)

Core Plays

QB-Jameis Winston-$31

Winston started the season off slowly but has been excellent from a fantasy perspective since. Winston has at least 300 yards passing in all but one game and has at least two touchdown passes in all but one game. Winston has at least 17 fantasy points in each of those games and is averaging 22.15 fantasy points in those games. Winston is putting up these numbers despite averaging over two turnovers a game. This week I don’t see Winston slowing down one bit as the takes on a Cardinals team that is allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game, the most passing touchdowns this season, and most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

RB-Kalen Ballage-$10

Trust me I know how bad Ballage is but I have a hard time passing over any minimum priced running back that is going to be the workhorse back for a team and that is what we have with Ballage. With Mark Walton being suspended and Kenyan Drake in Arizona, the Dolphins don’t have any other running back on their roster that has even taken a snap this season. Ballage should get 15 plus touches this week against a Colts team that does rank in the bottom third in rushing yards allowed per game.

WR-Mike Evans-$32

Evans is putting up monster numbers right now. In his past five games, if you take away the weird game against the Saints, Evans is averaging 13.4 targets, 8.8 catches, 150.6 yards, and 1.4 touchdowns. Evans has at least 16 fantasy points in each of those games. This week I don’t see Evans slowing down against a Cardinals team that is allowing the fourth-most passing yards per game while also allowing the 11th most fantasy points per game to wide receivers.


The Ravens are too cheap this week for them to be playing the Bengals. This season the Bengals are averaging the fourth-fewest points per game, have allowed at least two sacks in all but one game and are allowing the seventh-most fantasy points to oppossing defenses. The Bengals will also be starting Ryan Finely who will be making his first start of his career.
