The playoffs are right here and the NFL DFS slate is now a lot smaller due to that. With solely eight groups in motion for the Wild Card spherical, there are merely 4 video games to select from, that means that it is going to be tougher than traditional to distinguish our lineup from others. Nonetheless, our Yahoo GPP lineup for this slate has some strong values and sleepers and appeared to unfold the cash round to stability every little thing out.

Our technique was to focus on high-priced guys at WR, because the depth and sleeper choices in Yahoo weren’t as plentiful as different positions had been. Elsewhere, we focused Lamar Jackson as our QB, because the pricing on Yahoo is insanely low for the younger Ravens QB. By spending down there, that gave us the flexibility to spend up and land the No. 1 receiver from 4 completely different groups. That may give us a whole lot of big-play potential.

With out additional ado, here is a take a look at our full Yahoo lineup for tournaments.

Yahoo Fantasy Soccer: Wild card spherical NFL DFS event lineup

QB Lamar Jackson, Ravens vs. Chargers ($25). In some way, Jackson is the lowest-priced starter at QB on Yahoo platforms this week. That makes little sense, on condition that Jackson has a high-floor due to his speeding means. He had 90 yards and two TDs on the bottom final week in opposition to the Browns, and he really had a career-high in passing yards final time he performed the Chargers (204 yards). Jackson needs to be priced larger as he’s on FanDuel (second-highest priced QB) so we’ll reap the benefits of this inefficiency and hope that he has a giant day on the bottom.

RB Chris Carson, Seahawks @ Cowboys ($25). In his previous 4 outings, Carson has not less than 90 yards and a rating on the bottom. He has been remarkably constant, and whereas Mike Davis and Rashaad Penny will take some carries from him, he nonetheless figures to get about 20 touches in opposition to the Cowboys. The Cowboys have been good in opposition to RBs this season, however they are often crushed and Carson could have the amount wanted and will get an opportunity for a handful of goal-line carries.

RB Jordan Howard, Bears vs. Eagles ($20). The Eagles began the yr properly in opposition to the run, however they’ve allowed seven double-digit scorers at RB since Week 10. In the meantime, Howard has scored 4 instances within the final three weeks and whereas he’ll share carries with Tarik Cohen, $20 looks as if a cut price for him, as he appears higher than the fifth-highest priced RB on this slate.

WR DeAndre Hopkins, Texans vs. Colts ($34). I am spending up at receiver, due to the strong values at QB and RB, so I grabbed Hopkins right here. Hopkins has three straight video games the place he has posted not less than 104 yards and he has seen not less than 11 targets in 5 consecutive video games. He has an insanely excessive ground, although it’s notable that he had one in every of his worst video games of the season in opposition to the Colts in Week 14 (4 catches, 36 yards, 1 TD). Nonetheless, Hopkins is matchup-proof and we are able to afford him, so we’ll get him.

WR T.Y. Hilton, Colts @ Texans ($28).In two video games in opposition to the Texans this yr, Hilton has 314 receiving yards and on 18 targets. That is a median of 157 yards per sport. Whereas he hasn’t scored in opposition to them and has been banged up in latest weeks, Hilton has nonetheless carried out properly and has not less than 61 yards within the final eight video games he has performed. Like Hopkins, he’s a high-floor, high-ceiling possibility.

WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Bears ($21). Jeffery has logged not less than 82 yards receiving or a TD previously 4 weeks and he appears to have a strong rapport with Nick Foles (18 targets in three video games with Foles beginning). It is a revenge sport for Jeffery in opposition to his former crew, the Bears, and the Eagles will doubtless should throw so much, because the Bears have a terrific run protection. Jeffery might seize a TD and wil undoubtedly have possibilities to supply within the Wild Card spherical.

TE Blake Jarwin, Cowboys vs. Seahawks ($13). There’s an enormous spending hole between Eric Ebron and Zach Ertz ($26 and $24 respectively) and the following high choices. We selected to spend down and get a participant that has been approaching as of late. Jarwin has seen not less than seven targets in three of his final 4 outings, and he’s coming off a 100-yard, three TD outing in opposition to the Giants. He will not attain that insane manufacturing degree once more, however he ought to exceed his $13 worth if he sees one other seven targets.

FLEX Tyler Lockett, Seahawks @ Cowboys ($18). Lockett hasn’t been fairly as a lot of a TD menace in latest weeks as he was in the beginning of the season, however he’s averaging 26.three yards per reception previously three video games and has been a big-play, deep menace for a lot of the season. The Cowboys have a great secondary, however all it takes is one lengthy TD for Lockett to hit his worth. For lower than $20, we’ll take an opportunity on him.

D/ST Baltimore Ravens vs. Chargers ($16). The Ravens did a great job of limiting the Chargers’ offense when these two groups met just a few weeks in the past. The Ravens notched 4 sacks and a defensive TD in opposition to them regardless of being on the highway. At residence, the Ravens ought to have an opportunity to proceed to stress Philip Rivers, so getting them at a slight low cost ($four off the positional ceiling) is good.
