Yahoo Daily Fantasy analyst Tank Williams offers picks for DFS single-game contests as Seahawks host Saints
WILLIAMS TANK: Bawl. It’s time for our week 7 prime time ballers. Now, during our Sunday night football game, I had my little script together. But as you’ve heard, it’s raining like a Lil Wayne gig here – well, actually Lil Wayne after the gig.
Like, they had cars parked on one side of the road and stuff, so I’m off script right now. Like, it’s raining like crazy. So you will understand why I am giving you this little preface before getting to the heart of the matter.
So my first guy I go with is Elijah Mitchell which is a smart game because this Indianapolis defense is really tough against the run. But I already sensed that Shanahan was going to be stubborn with the race. But especially with the elements right now, he’s really going to have to be in it. Eli seemed like the guy before the pass against Arizona so I think he’s going to be a solid game today.
On the other hand, we have Jonathan Taylor, another guy who should be heavily used in this game when we play in this damn monsoon here in California weather. Because obviously I don’t know what my man was thinking last week when he only had two runs in the first half and then came back and then gave the Houston Texans the binkies with two tubs, I believe, on this long term.
But now you’re up against the San Francisco 49ers, wet conditions. Carson Wentz is sort of already … hey, I know you were all saying he was coming. But in this wet condition too, like eh, Jonathan Taylor is going to be the guy. So I really like what you get from him at this really cheap price for him for $ 29.
And now my superstar player was my man, Deebo Samuel. Because I thought the condition was going to be good. I felt like Jimmy G himself might have a typical Jimmy G game where Shanahan tries to protect him. They throw the ball enough for Deebo to come out. But then that’s it because, you know, this might be the perfect game for the man whose name I won’t say.
But because the elements are bad and he still hasn’t proven that I can say his name on this show or just in life, I’m going to continue not to reference him by name but just say this guy up. ‘so that he allows me to say the name of this guy. But Deebo Samuel will be your superstar.
