Yahoo Daily Fantasy analyst Tank Williams offers his picks for single-game DFS contests as Tampa Bay hosts New Orleans.
TANK WILLIAMS: Holler, it's time for our surprisingly great picks presented by State Farm. Now, my DFS value plays can fit in any budget, just like State Farm offers surprisingly great rates with coverage that meets your needs. Now, let's dig into our Sunday night match up with the New Orleans Saints fight to keep their playoff hopes alive against their division rival, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. And this is a game that I expect the Bucs to win, and as Lizzie said, I've already kind of talked about one of the players that we're going to talk about and face off today, but let's talk about them again. Leonard Fournette at 26 bucks.
Now, the Cowboys averaged 6.1 yards against the Saints team. The Eagles rushed for 242 yards, and even the Bills, who refused to run the rock, rushed for 113 yards. And so I feel like this is a setup where Leonard Fournette had a kind of off game against the Saints earlier this year. I expect him to ball out today. And Lizzie, yes, I gave you all your talking points, but that's just because I like my avocados extra green.
Now moving on to Taysom Hill at 30 bucks, he's going against that Tampa Bay defense that gives up the fifth-most fantasy points to fancy quarterbacks, but yet at the same time, what's an interesting nugget, is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers also give up the sixth-most rushing yards defense to quarterback. So I really like that where my man Taysom Hill, even though he has that finger, nothing wrong with those legs.
So I expect them to be churning. I think he'll probably end up stealing some TDs away from Alvin Kamara, that's why I probably going to put Kamara on my bench and start Leonard Fournette today. And at wide receiver, I'm going with Chris Godwin. I'm going with him as my stud, my superstar, my game changer in this one. Just because we already know, Marshon Lattimore, he's my man, Mike Evans.
So that Saints defense is trash against the slot receiver. And Chris Godwin has just been eating up defenses the past few weeks, like over 100 yards in the past three games. And I think that continues this week. So that's why I'm going with my man Chris Godwin as my superstar today.
