RB and WR DFS punts for Week 10
Week 10 in NFL DFS presents us with a number of teams who have had their running back depth chart depleted by injuries, forcing backups with blue-light special prices into potential featured roles. 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.
James Starks, Green Bay Packers – FanDuel $6,000, DraftKings $4,900, Yahoo $18
Call it injuries, call it ineffectiveness, whatever the case may be, Eddie Lacy has officially played himself out of a starting role in Green Bay and even conceded that Starks “has been the better” player this season. With head coach Mike McCarthy endorsing Starks as his starting running back this week, he becomes a good to exceed 20 touches as the new every-down back who is as effective on the ground as he is in the passing game.
Look for the Packers to exploit Detroit’s weakness in the passing game, where their secondary ranks 29th overall, according to PFF through Week 9. Starks put together a very solid six catch, 83 yard, one touchdown performance last Week against Carolina. Those totals that were better than James Jones in every category. Lock Starks into your GPP lineups against the lowly Lions.
