Yahoo Week 9 Slate Breakdown with Cash and GPP Picks
Below you'll find my Week 9 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
Matthew Stafford ($35) sets up extremely well, similarly to last week’s fantastic spot against the Giants. Like New York, the Raiders struggle to defend the deep ball, as they are coughing up 12.2 yards per completion, the fourth-worst mark in the NFL. Oakland has also surrendered the second-most passing plays of 20 yards or more (35), which bodes well for Stafford, who leads the NFL with 45 deep attempts, averaging nearly seven per game. 19.6% of his pass attempts have traveled 20 yards or more down the field, which is the highest rate among qualified passers. Look for Stafford to keep it going this weekend.
