Yahoo Picks Week 5: NFL DFS lineup advice for GPP tournaments

first_imgIt’s 2019, and our Week 5 Yahoo daily fantasy football GPP lineup is going to prominently feature Andy Dalton and the Bengals. No, this isn’t a trip back in time — it’s just a juicy matchup with the Cardinals. A Bengals stack, including Auden Tate as a value sleeper, provides some room for big names to fill out this lineup. We have four studs in Dalvin Cook, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Zach Ertz and Michael Thomas to help dominate NFL DFS tournaments.Week 4 was a weird week for fantasy scoring, but we put together a decent lineup. Kyler Murray saved his day with a rushing touchdown, but in general we were wrong that Arizona’s offense would function well against Seattle. Austin Ekeler and Will Dissly were the two obvious plays that faced too high of ownership to carry a GPP lineup, but at least they both delivered. After a slow start, so did Cooper Kupp. MORE WEEK 5 DFS: Stacks | Values | Lineup builderFLEX Michael Thomas, Saints vs. Buccaneers ($29). This game should have a ton of passing yards if Bucs-Rams in Week 4 is any indication. Teddy Bridgewater doesn’t throw downfield a lot, so Thomas should get bombarded with short passes and wind up with a double-digit catch performance.D/ST Oakland Raiders vs. Bears in London ($10). We had to pay down here to fit the rest of this lineup together. Oakland’s defense isn’t strong, but a matchup with Chase Daniel across the pond has some potential for a few turnovers and maybe a sloppy game overall. WEEK 5 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerNFL DFS Week 5: Yahoo GPP Lineup PicksQB Andy Dalton, Bengals vs. Cardinals ($29). The Red Rifle better be locked and loaded for this one because the Cardinals’ defense has allowed at least 300 yards passing in three of their first four games. Dalton’s had a surprisingly good start to the season without A.J. Green, and he has an interestingly inflated price this week, which should push down his ownership.RB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Giants ($40). Sometimes, you have to play the highest-priced player on the slate. Cook was shut down by the Bears, as expected, but no one else has been able to slow down Minnesota’s workhorse. The Giants won’t slow him down, either, and he might see the highest volume of touches on the slate, too.WEEK 5 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endRB Ronald Jones, Buccaneers @ Saints ($13). This backfield is kind of like throwing darts, but Jones just keeps looking good when given opportunities. The Bucs will probably prioritize passing, but Jones should get a few cracks at the end zone.WR Tyler Boyd, Bengals vs. Cardinals ($21). With Ross out, we’re still going to stick with the double Bengals wideout pairing with Dalton and plug Boyd into the lineup, as we had a few dollars to spare on the original construction.WR Auden Tate, Bengals vs. Cardinals ($10). It also feels like the Bengals should put up a ton of points against Arizona, and so we’ll take the cheap Tate, too. Cincinnati has run three-wide a ton this year, and Tate should be heavily involved in the snaps. In a game where passing should work, that should translate to air production, too. WEEK 5 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | FD cash | FD GPP | DK cash | DK GPPWR JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers vs. Ravens ($28). Getting JuJu for a slightly depressed price is never a bad option. The Ravens have been vulnerable against good receivers this year, so if Mason Rudolph has any success through the air in Week 5, it will be to Smith-Schuster.TE Zach Ertz, Eagles vs. Jets ($20). Ertz is the sixth highest-priced TE on the slate. There’s an argument to be made for Tyler Eifert against the Cardinals’ terrible TE defense, but that’s too chalky for a GPP so we went with the double Bengals’ WRs. Ertz is at a fair price point despite a statistically difficult matchup.last_img read more
