Week 13 GPP Plays on DraftKings
Geno Smith at Oakland $4,500
The Giants benched Eli Manning!? And Ben McAdoo still has a job!? Wait, What!? Forgetting about how big of a joke that is for a few minutes, this is our glory play right here. While rostering Geno Smith comes with a lot of risk, it comes with a lot of upside as well. And those are exactly the kind of players we’re looking to roster in tournaments. And this is what Geno has going for him this week: First, he’s a major salary saver as he costs only $4,500. Second, he gets to face a horrible Raiders defense that ranks DEAD LAST in pass DVOA and that has allowed the sixth most passing yards so far this season. And third, with major pieces of the Raiders offense either suspended or banged up, Oakland may struggle to dominate time of possession in this one, which could allow Geno more time with the ball and more chances to make plays. Plus, Geno offers rushing upside as well. In 30 games between 2013 and 2014, Smith totaled 604 rushing yards and seven TDs on the ground.
