Yahoo! Divisional Round Values & Top Plays
Our coverage of Yahoo! -- which has emerged as the number three player in DFS -- continues this week with a look at the Divisional round slate. Yahoo! has awarded winners of season-long leagues entry into a DFS tournament on their site during the playoffs (details here). Below, I've taken a stab at creating a lineup for use in the Divisional round.
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 in the Divisional round.
QB Carson Palmer $35 vs. GB
The Packer defense allowed Kirk Cousins to throw for 329 yards and finish as the top fantasy QB last week, which bodes well for Palmer, who finished the regular season ranked first in yards per attempt (8.7), fifth in passing yards per game (291.9), and first in total QBR (82.15). The Cardinals' Vegas implied team total is 28.5, which is by far this week's highest, and Palmer has accounted for 71% of Arizona's offensive TDs.
