NFL Pre-Season DraftKings Picks
NFL Pre-Season DraftKings Picks:
Thursday 9/1 Slate
Week four of the NFL preseason is vastly different than the previous three. We must take into account that almost ALL starters will NOT be playing this week. That in mind, we want to target players who are in position battles. Typically we’ll be looking at 3rd and 4th string RB’s, 5th and 6th string WR’s. This is a massive slate for preseason, with 15 games to cover. I will do my best to highlight players to consider and mention a few top plays. It will be imperative to watch beat reports on last minute in-actives. It’s going to be very hectic today, but there’s a good chance we can identify stronger plays closer to lock.
Paxton Lynch: Although chalky, Gary Kubiak has come out and said he plans on playing Lynch the entirety of Thursday’s game. Any QB that will be playing four quarters today is in play.
Also consider: Jameill Showers, Brandon Allen, Jacoby Brissett, Joe Webb, and Joe Callahan.
Kenneth Farrow: With Dreamius Smith and Braden Oliver both placed on IR this week, Farrow gets a sizable bump. He should handle almost all the carries for San Diego Thursday.
Also consider: D.J. Foster, Antone Smith, Kenjon Barner, Kenyan Drake, Bishop Sankey, Brandon Burks, Darius Jackson, and Ronnie Hillman.
Paul Turner: An undrafted rookie, Turner has done nothing but shine all of camp and preseason. With Philadelphia desperately needing a wide receiver to step up, he has one more shot to prove he’s worthy of a final roster spot.
Also consider: Nick Williams, Aaron Dobson, Charone Peake, Jalin Marshall, Jakeem Grant, Walt Powell, TJ Jones, Cody Core, Alex Erickson, Jeremy Butler, Chris Moore, Geronimo Allison, Jaelen Strong, Jordan Taylor, and Jaxon Shipley.
A.J. Derby: Locked in a lopsided roster battle with Clay Harbor, its Derby’s job to lose. One more solid showing and he will have earned his place on the final 53 man roster.
Good luck this Thursday!
