Yahoo DFS Picks Week 10: NFL DFS lineup advice for daily fantasy football GPP tournaments

As usual, despite four teams being on bye and six teams playing in prime-time games, there’s a nice mix of top-tier studs, under-priced mid-priced values, and lower-cost sleepers at our disposal for our Week 10 Yahoo DFS lineup. Use our picks and advice to at least inform your decisions for your lineups.

As always, we’re playing in GPP tournaments (rather than cash games), so we want to avoid too many obvious plays that will be heavily owned in our picks. That said, many of our selections will be boom-or-bust by nature.

WEEK 10 STANDARD RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Before we break down our picks, just a reminder of some key rules for Yahoo DFS. It’s essentially the same as FanDuel, with four-point passing TDs and half-point PPR.

WEEK 10 PPR RANKINGS:
Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | Kicker

Sunday main slate, $200 budget, no more than six players from the same team.

WEEK 10 DFS LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKings

Wentz has quietly played well, increasing his fantasy point total in each of his past three contests. The Jaguars are fresh off of a shocking upset over the Bills, a win that amounts to their Super Bowl. Meanwhile, the Colts are fighting for their playoff lives. We don’t expect them to suffer a similar letdown. Wentz is a solid bet to continue rolling to the tune of 20-plus fantasy points this week.

Harris has been just what the Steelers ordered with the No. 24 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. He hasn’t scored below 18.1 fantasy points since Week 2 and owns a massive piece of the Steelers’ touch pie. He’s scored in four straight contests and will face a defense that has given up the fourth-most rushing yards per game.

McCaffrey played 29 snaps and finished with 18 touches on 19 opportunities in his return from the IR last week. Considering he missed nearly six games with a pulled hamstring, it made sense for the Panthers to ease him back into the mix. With the way Sam Darnold is torpedoing the Panthers’ slim playoff chances, though, the temptation to ramp up CMC’s involvement this week may be too strong to pass up for Matt Rhule and Co.

The Bills are likely still fuming over their loss to the Jaguars last week, and the Jets will bear the brunt of their anger. Even though Diggs hasn’t been as prolific as he was last season, he leads the team with 73 targets — a 23.9-percent share — and will be locked in alongside quarterback Josh Allen. There’s a good chance Diggs delivers his first 20-point performance of the season in a bounce-back effort.

Lockett broke out of his slump last game with a 12-142 line on 13 targets. The Seahawks will welcome Russell Wilson (finger) back from injury, so he and Lockett will have the chance to renew their connection. The Packers are already without top corner Jaire Alexander (shoulder), and it’s possible they could be without rookie corner and starter Eric Stokes after he injured his knee in pregame warmups ahead of their Week 9 contest. That’s a long-winded way of suggesting that Lockett should be on “eruption watch” this week.

Jeudy followed up Week 8’s 4-39 line on four targets with a slightly more plump 6-69 on eight chances in Week 9. He played a season-high 47 snaps last week and appears on his way to resuming his 2021 breakout tour. The Eagles aren’t a particularly foreboding defense, neither overall nor against the pass. We’re going to keep calling on Jeudy while his price remains low.

The Eagles have attempted just 33 passes combined over the past two weeks, but that’s not a trend we expect to become the norm. Goedert will need more volume to remain a favorite mid-pricedoption, but we like the share of targets he’s receiving. He tied for the team lead with six targets in Week 9 and drew seven of the team’s 16 pass attempts in Week 8.

Patterson continues to rack up big yardage and touchdown numbers. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points every game since Week 1 and will be busy again on Sunday. With Calvin Ridley (personal) out indefinitely, Patterson will continue to handle a sizable target share and a healthy portion of the run game.

The Titans are fresh off an impressive road win over the Rams in which they scored 16.0 fantasy points. We’re not banking on another touchdown — though they’ve scored one in each of the past two games — but they’ve sacked quarterbacks 23 times and currently leadthe league with 100 QB pressures. The Saints aren’t particularly imposing offensively with Taysom Hill or Trevor Siemian under center, so as long as the Titans aren’t reading their press clippings, another strong performance is a realistic expectation.
