Special to Yahoo Sports
Yahoo is expanding its daily fantasy football options in 2021 with a single-game offering. Yahoo has a roster construction of one “Superstar” that scores at a 1.5 multiplier, while the remaining four FLEX roster spots accumulate points at the normal rate. This is half-point PPR scoring and the “Superstar” salary does not change from the Utility. All scoring and rules can be found here.
It is vital to remember that single-game slates are not simply a “max salary, play as many big names as possible, and submit” format, especially in larger tournament fields. We need to identify players who can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players who could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will thrive in the single-game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.

The Buccaneers defense ($18) started 2021 as one of the best defenses in schedule-adjusted fantasy points allowed (aFPA) to opposing running backs but has slipped to 11th heading into Week 11.
An active duo of Barkley and Booker would help alleviate pressure on Daniel Jones ($26). The Giants’ offensive line is as healthy as it is going to get and gets the challenge of Tampa’s front four. The Giants do…
