Top 5 Yahoo Picks NFL DFS Week 1

nfl dfs

Welcome to the Top 5 Yahoo Picks for NFL DFS Week 1! I will be diving into the NFL Study Hub and highlighting stand outs on Yahoo! Let’s get into it. 

Lamar Jackson – Jackson ranks first in the ratings and second in projections just behind Patrick Mahomes. The Ravens have a solid implied total at 25.75 against the Jets. Jackson has solid rushing upside and clear top pass catchers in Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman. 

Christian McCaffrey – McCaffrey ranks first in ratings and projections among running backs and should be lower owned than Jonathan Taylor. Volume should not be a concern for McCaffrey as we have him projected for 22.48 total touches. I wouldn’t worry about a lower implied team total of 22 for Carolina since the volume is projected to be massive. 

Dalvin Cook – Cook ranks third in ratings and fifth in projections among running backs and he will cost you only $28. To go along with this low price tag, Cook has the fifth highest ceiling in the Range of Outcomes tab which makes him a great tournament option. With a line of +1.5, Cook should be able to avoid a negative game script here.

Davante Adams – Adams ranks first in ratings and projections among wide receivers! At $28, he is a spend-up option but, he should be a solid market share north of 20% with the new-look Raiders offense. Adams is projected for 10.3 targets, 82.02 receiving yards, and 0.51 receiving touchdowns. In the Range of Outcomes tab, Adams has the second highest ceiling at his position. 

Mark Andrews – Andrews ranks second in ratings and projections just behind Travis Kelce in both of those categories. Going with Andrews is a direct price point pivot and looks like a great option with a tournament-winning upside. Andrews is projected for a massive workload with 11 targets, 68.1 receiving yards, and 0.57 receiving touchdowns. 

Good luck on Sunday!
