Jaylen Waddle Absence Provides DFS Value On Miami Offense

  • DeVante Parker is $4,300 on DraftKings.
  • The New York Jets allow nine yards per target vs opposing wide outs.
  • Mike Gesicki is the eight most expensive tight end on DraftKings.

MIAMI – The Miami Dolphins are set to host the New York Jets this Sunday at Hard Rock Stadium.

Oddsmakers have listed the Dolphins as 10-point favorites, and have given this game a low total of 41 points.

The Dolphins star wide receiver Jaylen Waddle has just been placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list which should stand to benefit teammates DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki. DeVante Parker is $4,300 on DraftKings while Mike Gesicki is $5,000.

DeVante Parker $4,300

Parker turned in a modest 5-62 performance last week against the New York Giants, but should stand to benefit exponentially with the absence of Waddle to the Dolphins lineup.

Parker is set to operate as the #1 wide receiver for the Miami Dolphins, and is a stand out value play on NFL DFS sites.

The New York Jets are allowing nine yards per target to opposing wide receivers, and have given up six touchdowns this season to wideouts.

Being able to roster the number one wide receiver in an offense favored by 10 points for $4,300 is an absolute no brainer. DFS players can roster Parker and still have the money to afford other high priced receivers like Cooper Kupp ($9,000 vs Seattle) or Davante Adams ($8,900 vs. Baltimore)

Mike Gesicki $5,000

Gesicki is coming off a season-high 11 targets in Week 13.

Gesicki has not scored a touchdown since Week 7, a Sunday matchup with the New York Jets could end that drought. The Jets have been torched by tight ends this season, allowing a league-high 9.1 yards per target.

Mike Gesicki caught 5-of-6 targets for 50 yards when these teams played in Week 11, while Miami tight ends combined for 106 yards on 10 catches in that game. Gesicki is the eighth most expensive tight end on DraftKings and makes for an excellent pivot off the more popular DeVante Parker.
