Yahoo! Wild Card Round Values & Top Plays
Yahoo! has emerged as the number three player in DFS and is awarding winners of season-long leagues entry into a DFS tournaments on their site during the playoffs (details here), so we thought it would be a good time to start delivering some Yahoo! specific content to our DFS subscribers.
For those who may be unfamiliar with Yahoo! DFS, the salary cap is $200, which resembles an auction draft. The scoring system is 0.5 PPR. For those wondering, the interface can be seen below. Also, be sure to check out our Yahoo! Value Reports and Lineup Generator, which are locked and loaded to give you an edge on Wild Card Weekend.
Below is my stab at a tournament lineup for Wild Card Weekend.
Editor's Note: 4for4's DFS Subscription is now only $19! 4for4 will be providing DFS subscribers with content throughout the entire NFL Playoffs, including Yahoo! content.
QB A.J. McCarron $25 vs. PIT
McCarron is by far our top value at QB on our Yahoo! Value Report, which is mainly due to the fact that no QB really stands out this weekend (the top QB, Russell Wilson, is projected only 2.9 points higher than McCarron, but costs $11 more). McCarron also has the best matchup of all QBs on the slate, as the Steelers are ranked 25th in QB aFPA. In Week 14, McCarron went 22-of-32 for 280 yards with 2 TDs and 2 interceptions in a relief appearance against Pittsburgh.
