Top 5 NFL DFS Yahoo Picks Week 5
Welcome to the Top 5 Yahoo Picks for NFL DFS Week 5! I will be diving into the NFL Study Hub and highlighting stand outs on Yahoo! Let’s get into it.
Tom Brady – Brady ranks fourth in the ratings and projections at quarterback this week. Tampa Bay has an implied total of 28.25 and Brady comes at an ownership discount at around 15% lower owned than Josh Allen. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin are the top options to stack with Brady. On the Atlanta side, Drake London is a clear option with Kyle Pitts out.
Leonard Fournette – Fournette ranks first in ratings and third in projections at running back this week! With a grade of A for both projection and value, Fournette is a cash lock for me and a high upside target for tournaments. At only $22, Fournette is averaging 19 touches per game and Atlanta is allowing 126.2 rushing yards per game.
Cooper Kupp – Kupp ranks first in the ratings and projections at wide receiver this week. Kupp continues to get a massive target share at 36.24% as Stafford continues to look his way on every play. The Rams have a solid implied team total against the Cowboys at 24.25 so they shouldn’t struggle to score here. If you’re looking for raw points, Kupp is your guy.
Marquise Brown – Brown ranks tenth in the ratings and projections this week. At only $19, Brown has a B grade in projections and a grade of A for value! The Eagles are a tough matchup but, Brown is getting a 26.63% market share and 11.3 targets per game. It’ll be hard to beat that volume at $19.
Tyler Higbee – Higbee is ranked second in the ratings and first in the projections at his position. Another really solid grade of A for both projection and value for the Rams’ tight end! It’s an obvious spend down week at the position with no Travis Kelce or Mark Andrews. At $15, Higbee is getting a 25% market share at has 20+ point upside.
Good luck on Sunday!
