Yahoo Week 8 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
Below you'll find my Week 8 Yahoo cash game and tournament strategies. By offering a general approach to the week, along with a player pool to consider, you should walk away feeling well-equipped no matter your bankroll strategy or game selection process.
Main Slate Strategy
Russell Wilson ($40) is the most expensive quarterback on the slate but I still want him in my lineups. The Falcons are the remedy for anyone coming off a poor outing. Over the last four weeks, they have more ejections (1) than sacks (0), while their 17.7% pressure rate is the sixth-lowest in football. The Falcons are also allowing the most points per drive in the league with 3.01, while only the Raiders and Dolphins are coughing up more passing touchdowns per game (2.4). Even if this is another 25 pass attempt game from Wilson, he should be efficient against this poor defense.
