Big receiver stack in Week 5 Yahoo DFS
Outside of Colin Kaepernick falling flat on his face for the second straight week, and Melvin Gordon not breaking out like we had hoped, there were a few bright spots from our Week 4 Yahoo! DFS lineup.
Amari Cooper, Karlos Williams, James Jones, Charles Clay all scored touchdowns, while DeAndre Hopkins reached over 150 yards on nine receptions.
But in DFS, we want to hit on every player, especially when playing in a tournament where there are hundreds of thousands of people playing. If you are playing in cash games (50/50’s, H2H, Multipliers), you can take a more conservative approach and play those with high floors.
Here in this weekly column for Yahoo! DFS, we are trying to hit it big. We want to take part of that million dollar prize pool. We are going to do that by playing the players that others are scared to, because our metrics tell us that we should.
While there will always be some “can’t miss” players that will be on a lot of teams in our lineup, we will also have some that may be less than two percent owned, because that will make the difference. That is what’s going to win us the money.
Week 5, we are coming for you.
