Sit-start DFS advice for Ravens-Dolphins tilt

Special to Yahoo Sports

Yahoo has expanded their daily fantasy football options with a single-game option, with a roster construction of one ‘Superstar’ that scores at 1.5 times while the remaining four 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 that can be pieces in their offense’s success, whether in the lead or trailing, as well as the players that could be focal points in a neutral game script. The ability to then take those players and identify which will succeed in the single-game format will put us in a better position to succeed as daily fantasy players.

Brissett is last in the NFL in yards per attempt (5.58, min. Four starts), 1.04 behind Tagovailoa.

The Dolphins are also without DeVante Parker (hamstring) for the foreseeable future, a trusted pass-catcher. That leaves the heavy lifting to Mike Gesicki ($20) and Jaylen Waddle ($17). Only…
