Yahoo! DFS Cash Game Players for Week 15

Every week in Yahoo DFS we look to target high floor players to hit the cash line in 50/50s, Double ups, and head to heads. Let’s identify the best cash plays as we look to hit the cash line again and find ways to leverage ownership in tournaments like the Yahoo! Baller.

Quarterbacks

Jalen Hurts $40

The leader in the MVP Race and remains a every week play in any matchup because the Eagles continue to keep the foot on the gas – even when up big – as was on display when they beat the Giants 48 to 22 last week and Hurts put up 30 points. He now has 7 straight games with 20 points or more and is the top cash game play yet again this week. 

Justin Fields $36

The matchup isn’t good for Quarterbacks facing the Eagles, but we have to reconsider Fields because he’s far from a traditional quarterback. Fields has averaged 102 rushing yards and a rushing touchdown across his last 7 games; Fields also has seen an uptick in passing in his last 3 games – averaging 191 yards per game. He’s playable in cash and I like him ran naked in tournaments but can be stacked with Cole Kmet as well. 

Patrick Mahomes $35

Houston is better being attacked on the ground, but as we saw last week vs Denver (22 fantasy points), Mahomes’ floor is safe vs any Defense, and that’s why he’s almost always cash game viable.  Right now, Mahomes is the chalk at QB on Yahoo DFS via the Domination Station.

Running Backs

Derrick Henry $40

The Los Angeles Chargers give up 3.38 points above average to the Running back position and naturally Henry has the top projection this week in this juicy matchup. He comes at a price though as he’s priced all the way up to $40.

Zonovan Knight $21

Knight got 77% of the carries last week for 18 total touches. The Detroit Defense, overall, is bad so the price is good here for the volume and opportunities to get into the endzone.

Isaiah Pacheco $21

Pacheco has double digit points over the last 4 games and this week he gets Houston’s defense that is 2nd worst in the league against the run – giving up 5 points above average to the RB position. 

Alvin Kamara $19

Kamara is quite underpriced on Yahoo and has the 4th highest projection this week against an Atlanta Defense that ranks bottom 10 against the run, so it’s no surprise why he has the 2nd best fantasy points per dollar projection among running backs.

James Conner $19

The Running back pool in the $25-$40 range this week is messy so targeting some of the top value plays and paying up at Wide receiver in good projected game environments is going to be the move. Conner is one of those plays with Arizona likely to lean on the run with Mccoy at the helm. Conner’s projection is a fraction of a point behind Kamara.

Latavius Murray $14

Mike Boone has been placed on IR so Lats Murray should slide back into the lead back role and he’s the top Fantasy Points per Dollar play against an Arizona team that gives up 2 points over average to the running back position.

**Injury Pending**

Rhiamondre Stevenson $26

If we knew Stevenson was a full go, he’d arguably be the best RB play on the entire slate against Las Vegas. Check back on Sunday morning when I update my Yahoo DFS plays as the injury news comes out.

Wide Receivers

Davante Adams $34

The Patriots have one of the best run defenses in the league and the Raiders win more often when they feed Adams, so the formula seems simple here; Adams’ 33% target share on the season is top tier and he’s the top pay up option on the main slate.

Ja’Marr Chase $31

Elite talent, elite usage with 15 targets last week, and he’s really the only healthy Wide Receiver right now for Cincinatti. The matchup is good against a Tampa team that is slightly under average defending opposing wide receivers.

Ceedee Lamb $29

Jacksonville has a bottom 5 pass defense in the league. Despite last week’s dud, Lamb has a 29% target share on the season and is in a prime spot for a bounce back game here.

Keenan Allen $27

The Chargers’ passing attack is in the best position this week while facing a Tennessee Defense that is worst in the league against the wide receiver position – giving up 7.5 points above average! I love both Allen and Williams this week – especially Herbert + Williams stacks in tournaments.

Garrett Wilson $24

Wilson will definitely be in my cash game lineup this week as he faces the Detroit Lions Secondary that is third worst in the league against wide receivers. The matchup is much softer than the last two weeks and he’s priced up because of it, but he’s still good value considering his volume as the focal point of the passing game and upside due to his talent as a budding superstar.

Jerry Jeudy $17

Jeudy saw 9 targets in week 14 and he showed flashes of why he was taken 15th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. Denver may be without Hinton this week in addition to Sutton. I like the Jeudy play if he’s the WR1 and Wilson clears concussion protocol.

Chris Moore $16

Moore smashed last week with 11 targets as the primary receiver in a depleted Wide Receiver room. Assuming Collins and Cooks are both out again, Moore is a great play again this week at his cheap price going up against a KC team that is below average defending Wide receivers.

Tight Ends

Dalton Schultz $18

Jacksonville has a poor Defense, overall, and Schultz projects well this week against them with the 2nd highest projection on the slate for Tight end, at half the price of Kelce.

Greg Dulcich $16

Arizona is worst in the league at defending the tight end and Dulcich has back-to-back 8 target games this year. He projects as a great play and the ownership isn’t high (7%), so I like him in tournaments as well.

Tyler Conklin $14

In addition to wide receivers, Detroit isn’t good at defending the tight end position, either, so I like Conklin as both a standalone TE play and in Tournament double stacks with Wilson.

Chigoziem Okonkwo $12

Chig has over 5 targets in 3 straight games and last week he caught 6 of 6 targets in Treylon’s absence for 45 yards and a Touchdown. He’s the 2nd highest Fantasy Points per Dollar play at tight end behind Engram… who is in play as well.

Defenses

Denver Broncos $15

Denver’s elite defense gets a colt Mccoy led team at home at only $15. This is my favorite mid-priced Defense on the slate.

New Orleans Saints $11

The Saints gets a rookie QB at home. This is my favorite defense on the slate at near minimum pricing.

Los Angeles Chargers $10

Top Fantasy Points per Dollar play this week and at minimum pricing.

Top Yahoo! DFS Stack of the Week 

Justin Herbert and Mike Williams

Total Stacking Price: $62

Total Projected Ownership: 16.22%

The Tennessee Titans give up a league worst 7.5 points above average to the Wide Receiver position and Herbert finally has all of his weapons at his disposal. Herbert double stacks with Williams as the primary are the target here and I’m not forcing a bring back, but Henry is the primary bring back option.

Top Yahoo DFS Leverage Plays

Justin Fields at 5%

The matchup doesn’t look good on paper and the Bears have a low team total but Fields’ rushing floor brings that high floor, high ceiling that we want to target in GPP’S and especially at low ownership. If the field fades field, I’ll be way over the field in exposure to Justin.

Dak Prescott at 5%

Jacksonville is poor against the Quarterback and Wide Receiver position, so Dak stacks are certainly good leverage plays this week in tournaments as long as ownership stays low.

Dare Ogunbowale at 3%

Pierce is hurt and the Texans waived Eno Benjamin, so we don’t know who the RB is to get the bulk of the carries on Sunday against KC but it’s a good matchup and Dare and Burkhead are both are priced at the minimum and coming in as low owned, so I’d like some GPP exposure to both at this ownership.

Miles Sanders at 2%

Not only is this a great matchup vs Chicago’s poor run defense, but Sanders provides direct leverage off of Hurts’ Chalk.

Rex Burkhead at 1%

Pierce is hurt and the Texans waived Eno Benjamin, so we don’t know who the RB is to get the bulk of the carries on Sunday against KC but it’s a good matchup and Dare and Burkhead are both priced at the minimum and coming in as low owned, so I’d like some GPP exposure to both at this ownership.

Zonovan Knight at 1%

Detroit has a decent run game but an overall bad defense. Bad defenses create scoring opportunities for all positions in the redzone, so I love the play here with Knight’s recent usage and strong running.

Jerick Mckinnon at .21%

Houston has the 2nd worst run defense in the league and Mckinnon just broke the slate last week. The field is way off here and it won’t take much to find some positive leverage with even small exposure to Mckinnon in your lineups.

Mike Williams at 5%

We love Herbert and Williams this week and I love this even more at low ownership.

Josh Palmer at 3%

Palmer and Williams projecting as low owned allow our Herbert stacks to eat chalk elsewhere.

Chris Moore at 2%

Assuming no Cooks or Collins, Moore would be a fantastic, low owned bring back option in KC stacks and a solid piece as well in secondary game stacks with KC/Hou. He saw 11 targets last week and he’s a steal at his salary and ownership.

Josh Reynolds at 1%

Direct leverage off of Amon-Ra. St. Brown & Garrett Wilson. DJ. Chark fits the bill here too.

Tyler Conklin at 1%

In addition to wide receivers, Detroit isn’t good at defending the tight end position, either, so I like Conklin as both a standalone TE play and in Tournament double stacks with Wilson – especially in tournaments at 1%.
