Week 15 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. Last week I was solid again with Bilal Powell, but Cecil Lammey also connected big with Rueben Randle. Did we do it again? Tune in for my pick this week. So give the following list of additional punt plays for this week a read and tell me what you think, either in the comments or on twitter (@JeffPasquino). Here goes:
Bilal Powell, RB, Jets ($3,600) - Yes, I am cheating a little, but the pricing is tighter this week. I still like Powell as a solid PPR play.
Malcom Floyd, WR, Chargers ($3,500) - Someone has to catch the passes from Phillip Rivers this week. Why not Floyd?
Markus Wheaton, WR, Steelers ($3,400) - Big Ben is red hot, and while Denver is a tough matchup, I have a good feeling that Pittsburgh is going to put up a solid fight. A long touchdown and Wheaton hits cash and GPP value in one big play.
Nate Washington, WR, Texans ($3,400) - Houston has to throw the ball, and DeAndre Hopkins cannot catch every pass. Washington gets a lot of targets in this offense, and if he scores, well, that's a 3x or 4x event right there.
Seth Roberts, WR, Raiders ($3,300) - Oakland might fall behind quickly to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, which leads right to the Raiders having to throw. Roberts is their solid WR3 option and he has been productive of late.
Dontrelle Inman, WR, Chargers ($3,-00) - See Malcom Floyd's comments above.
