Yahoo DFS Picks Week 15: Daily fantasy football lineup advice for GPP tournaments

first_imgYahoo’s Week 15 NFL DFS pricing allows plenty of opportunities to take advantage of apparent value plays to stuff a GPP lineup with studs that you might normally picture as cash game plays. I’m feeling really good about getting Carson Wentz, Dalvin Cook, Courtland Sutton, D.J. Moore and Tyreek Hill all into the same lineup.I wasn’t expecting my Week 14 lineup to crash and burn due to DeVante Parker and Leonard Fournette, but they want a long way to making it a bust. Parker’s concussion obviously didn’t help matters, while Jacksonville was just really bad. At least there’s always next week. MORE WEEK 15 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderFLEX Tyreek Hill, Chiefs vs. Broncos ($30). The Broncos don’t present a super favorable matchup, but hopefully that moves people off Hill and we get his game-breaking speed in our lineup at relatively low ownership.D/ST Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Lions ($15). We’re definitely not worried at all about David Blough or an already depleted backfield that could have Bo Scarbrough (ribs) hurting, too. The Bucs should get sacks and limit points in this one, and any takeaways would be gravy. WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerNFL DFS Week 15: Yahoo GPP Lineup PicksQB Carson Wentz, Eagles @ Redskins ($28). Overall, Wentz has been a bit of a disappointment in 2019. But there’s no reason a matchup with the reeling Redskins will slow him down. This is a game where he can throw for at least 250 yards with a couple scores and run for 30 more — and that’s just his floor. UPDATED: QB Russell Wilson, Seahawks @ Panthers ($30). Swapping out Wentz to create a different stack this week — we’ll take a slightly lowered Wilson price and anticipate a bounceback game for him here.WEEK 15 DFS LINEUPS:FD Cash | FD GPP | DK Cash | DK GPP | Y! Cash RB Patrick Laird, Dolphins @ Giants ($12). Laird saw 15 carries to go with catching four-of-five targets in Week 14. That’s 20 attempts to get him the ball at a $12 price tag. I’d take that against any defense, but especially against the Giants.WEEK 15 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endRB Dalvin Cook, Vikings @ Chargers ($36). This week’s pricing allowed for almost any high-priced option here and at the FLEX spot, and after a couple of off weeks, Cook was back to 18 carries in Week 14. He’s one of the best floor-ceiling combos each week due to his high touch totals to go with his game-breaking ability.WR Alshon Jeffery, Eagles @ Redskins ($20). Jeffery is the only WR Wentz has that’s worth trusting as a stack option, and his price tag is totally fair. Washington doesn’t have any shutdown corners to worry about, either.UPDATED: WR DK Metcalf, Seahawks @ Panthers ($17). Can’t afford Tyler Lockett for the stack here, so we’ll take Metcalf and hope Wilson can connect with him deep.WR Courtland Sutton, Broncos @ Chiefs ($21). Drew Lock has been a revelation and opened this offense up enough to make Sutton a super appealing play against a mediocre defense that Denver might be forced to throw a ton on to keep up.MORE WEEK 15:Waiver pickups | FAAB planner | Stock watch | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff tipsWR D.J. Moore, Panthers vs. Seahawks ($27). The last time Moore saw fewer than six targets in a game was Sept. 29. Seattle showed it can be beat through the air by the Rams in Week 14 (we knew that already anyway), and Kyle Allen isn’t bad enough to ruin Moore.TE O.J. Howard, Buccaneers @ Lions ($11). Howard caught four balls in Week 14, and this is mostly a bet that the absence of Mike Evans due to a hamstring injury makes Howard a much more important piece of this offense against a bad Lions team.last_img read more

JQ staff strike baggage fees

first_imgAs part of the carrier’s staffs first ever industrial action, check-in staff in major airports will waive excess baggage fees this Friday.The ‘No Weight Day’ commencing at 3.30am Friday 14 October and ending 3.30am Saturday 15 October was organised by the Australian Services Union (ASU) and will see customers able to pack freely when travelling with the carrier through Sydney, Melbourne, Avalon, Cairns, Brisbane and Gold Coast airports.According to the Group’s assistant national secretary Linda White, strikes are a final option at reaching a new workplace agreement.”They are not interested in listening to workers’ reasonable requests for a fair pay rise,” Ms White explained “Rather, they are looking to push wages and conditions in the industry to new depths.“ Our members just want Jetstar to value their work.”The union said Jetstar currently charges a flat $80 for passengers with baggage that exceeds the weight limit on their fare.‘No Weight Day’ is expected to cost the carrier up to $50,000 which Ms White said could have management “start seriously negotiating with their workers”.”We are happy to say that this will have no negative impact on passengers, in fact it will be a bonus.”This is the most recent in a continuously growing line of strikes the Qantas Group has faced over the past two months.The carrier has had issues with its engineer and transport unions, with the Group’s requesting pay rises that could slump Qantas’ competitive edge, according to group executive Olivia Wirth.The carrier announced today it was forced to cancel two international flights and 14 domestic as well as delay 35 others as Transport Workers Union members walk off the job tomorrow. Hoping to minimise disruptions, Qantas said it would utilise larger aircraft to accommodate passengers and deploy management staff in operational roles.
