Week 16 Punt Plays

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)

Thanks for reading as always, and be sure to check out The DraftKings' Audible episode every week, and subscribe to The Audible on iTunes.  Good luck this week!
