Michael a worthy punt option in Week 7
This week’s NFL DFS bargain bin presents us with a couple few faces ready to burst onto the scene along with a couple season veterans that are still have clearance price tags. Each week, I’ll feature the top punt options at running back and wide receiver that present the most value for your daily fantasy lineups.
Christine Michael, Cowboys – FanDuel $5,600, DraftKings $3,000, Yahoo $13
With the Cowboys in the midst of a three-game losing streak, Dallas offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has finally promised the increased touches for Michael that the fantasy football world has been waiting for. Joseph Randle has seen his handle on the starting running back job slowly slip away after failing to average three yards per carry in two of the past four weeks.
Michael draws a plus matchup against a Giants defense that has steadily regressed to 22nd against the run and 26th overall this season according to PFF. At minimum salary of DraftKings, Michael is definitely worth a roster spot.
