Week 16 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 off with my Vernon Davis pick, but I did go back to the tight end position this week. Who is it? You have to listen! John did well last week with Reuben Randle, who now seems like a cash play this week with OBJ / ODB suspended. So, tune in for my pick this week, and 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:
Charles Sims, RB, Buccaneers ($3,300) - Chicago cannot defend the pass, and Sims offers value as a receiver out of the backfield and can run it as well. I like his upside.
Jermaine Kearse, WR, Seahawks ($3,200) - Russell Wilson is red hot and the Rams are not, so why not consider a cheap piece of that offense?
Nate Washington, WR, Texans ($3,200) - 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. (Yes, this is a recording)
