Yeldon is a prime Week 5 punt play
The skill position carousel continues heading into Week 5, as a number of teams are now forced into starting their third string running backs and wide receivers due to injuries. Each week, I’ll feature the top punt options at both positions that present the most value for your daily fantasy lineups.
T.J. Yeldon, Jacksonville Jaguars – FanDuel $6,600, DraftKings $4,400, Yahoo $20
DFS players that have had shares of Yeldon through the first four weeks of the season have probably felt like they’ve been sold a bag of goods thus far. The good news is that that Jacksonville has shown a fair amount of commitment to the run game, with Yeldon totaling 25 touches last week against Indianapolis, and 29 touches in Week 2 against Miami. Yeldon now gets the benefit of facing a Tampa Bay defense that ranks dead last against the run according to PFF through the first quarter of the season. Look for the Jaguars rookie to be a nice bargain play on all three sites in Week 5.
