I don't punt. My best player is number 7, and the strength of the team at wr. You go for it on 4th down there to get the first down, put yourself in field goal range and run the clock down to nothing. If you make the first down, the worst case is that you're going to overtime if your kicker misses an manageable kick. If you don't get the 1st down, you're no worse off they they ended up being anyway.
