Captain’s Picks

Ben Watson, Patriots ($9,600)

Watson’s price dropped back down to must-play range, as he continues to put up strong numbers. He has 192 receptions through 37 games for 2,409 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also doesn’t have many bad games and he’s dipped below double-digit’s just nine times in those 36 matchups.


James White, Patriots ($8,800)

White’s price is still a little low for his upside, as he’s hit 25.4, 33.3, 20.9, and 27.2 DK points over his last seven games. The Packers are better against the pass than run, so I could see putting White into the Captain’s slot if the salary cap allows.

Aaron Jones, Packers ($9,200)

Jones has done little in the simulation but he’s had two of his best games over his last three matchups. I don’t love the Packers offense in this matchup, but their best shot is on the ground. Jones is way overpriced, so maybe he won’t be on a big percentage of rosters.

Phillip Dorsett, Patriots ($5,000)

Dorsett hasn’t been good of late but he is worthwhile at his price. We could easily get a game where he falls below double-digit DK points, but he has 20 DK points upside at good value.
