Yahoo NFL DFS Tournament Targets: Week 9

It’s no secret, I play a lot of DFS on Yahoo and find it to be overlooked in both DFS and content. This article is my attempt to outline some of what I think will be chalk and my favorite tournament targets to consider for each NFL main slate. The article will start off pretty basic and light on analysis, as we don’t have much data to go off of, but hopefully will evolve as the season does. Feel free to comment, message me, and of course jump into contests with me on Yahoo.

On to the plays I’m considering as of today for NFL Week 9.


QB: Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs, $36
The Chiefs come in with by far the highest team total on the week (31.75) and I learned my lesson fading Mahomes in a similar spot last week against the Jets because I was worried about a blowout. Well, in blowouts the Chiefs are still going to put up a lot of points and make no mistake, the Chiefs are a passing offense.
