Week 12 Punt Plays
Every week John Lee, Cecil Lammey and I (Jeff Pasquino) discuss our punt plays for DraftKings on The Audible to close out our weekly DFS DraftKings podcast. These are players that we are looking at to fill in a last spot on our lineups that are relatively cheap. We have all been there - we have only a few bucks left and 1-2 spots to go in our roster, and we need a good value play to fill in that gap. The rules we play by are that the player must not cost more than $3,500.
Just like always, I can only use one on the show - and I am not going to steal the thunder from our three picks that make the airwaves - but I will share a few guys that did not make it for the final cut. Some of them look pretty solid this week, so give them a read and tell me what you think, either in the comments or on twitter (@JeffPasquino). Here goes:
Robert Woods, WR, Bills ($3,400) - A big, home run hitting wide receiver against the worst team in defending wide receivers (Kansas City)? Sounds good to me.
Bilal Powell, RB, Jets ($3,300) - Miami is not good against the run, and Powell offers value as a rusher and a receiver. Good upside here.
Charles Sims, RB, Buccaneers ($3,500) - Jameis Winston is heating up and the Colts will have their hands full with Doug Martin and Sims. Sims has value as a runner and a receiver against a weak defense in great conditions in a dome here.
Chris Thompson, RB, Washington ($3,200) - Washington still thinks that they have a playoff chance, and throwing is the way to beat the Giants. Thompson is their best third down back.
David Cobb, RB, Titans ($3,400) - Is this the week that Tennessee finally gets Cobb going?
