Missouri QB Connor Bazelak has a chance to put up some numbers for the Tigers – (Kate Luffman, Tennessee Athletics)

Top Plays

Tanner Mordecai (SMU) $9,000 – Mordecai has 16 TD passes this season, but his price is too high for me this week. I don’t love the match-up.

Malik Cunningham (Louisville) $8,800 – Cunningham had a great game last week and now DraftKings has jacked up his price. I don’t trust him enough to pay this much, and his match-up vs FSU is good but not great.

Max Duggan (TCU) $8,700 – Duggan has an excellent match-up. However, just like Cunningham and Mordecai, I’m not sure I’m paying for him this week when there are a bunch of value QB plays this week.

Max Johnson (LSU) $8,300 – Johnson is averaging 28.2 FPPG and has a decent match-up.

JT Daniels (Georgia) $8,100 – Daniels has a great match-up vs Vanderbilt, but don’t be surprised if the RBs thrive in this one.

Best Value

Will Rogers (Miss St) $7,800 – One thing Mississippi State is going to do is give the QB a ton of opportunities to make a play. Rogers threw 67 passes last week. The volume he’s getting makes him a valuable play almost every week.

Hank Bachmeier (Boise St) $7,300 – This is one of my favorite plays of the week. Love the value and match-up.

Casey Thompson (Texas) $7,200 – Thompson will start this week for the Longhorns and his match-up isn’t too bad. If he wants to takeover the starting job, he needs to make a statement here.

Brock Purdy (Iowa St) $6,900 – Purdy has a decent match-up vs Baylor and his price is reasonable.

Connor Bazelak (Missouri) $6,800 – Bazelak is averaging 24.9 FPPG this season and for this price and with the match-up I love this play.

Tyler Shough (Texas Tech) $6,500 – Shough is averaging 21.4 FPPG this season and his match-up vs Texas has potential to be a really good one.

Jack Coan (Notre Dame) $6,300 – Coan goes up against his former team Wisconsin and is an interesting match-up for the price.

Darkhorse Plays

McKenzie Milton (Florida St) $6,100 – Jordan Travis is dealing with an injury. Keep an eye on that injury because if Milton starts, I could see this being a cheap contrarian play.

Logan Bonner (Utah St) $5,600 – Bonner is extremely cheap and will most likely be passing with Utah State trailing. He’s got some experienced receivers, and I could see this being an excellent play.

Running Backs

Top Plays

Bijan Robinson (Texas) $7,200 – Bijan had 36.1 Fantasy points last week. He’s one of the top RBs in CFB, and he’s better with Thompson at QB.

Breece Hall (Iowa St) $7,000 – Hall will get a heavy workload like always. The match-up is against Baylor who hasn’t really played anyone who will test them like the Cyclones will.

Tyler Badie (Missouri) $6,900 – Badie has been on fire this season averaging 34.2 FPPG, and he has 6 rushing TDs.

Best Value

Blake Corum (Michigan) $6,700 – Corum is #2 in my latest Heisman Rankings. He’s going up against Rutgers and he’ll be able to have another productive day.

Zamir White (Georgia) $6,300 – White has an excellent match-up vs Vanderbilt and his price has a ton of value.

Zach Evans (TCU) $6,200 – Evans is one of my favorite plays of the week. The Horned Frogs should feed him the ball a ton, and he has a great price tag.

Will Shipley (Clemson) $5,800 – Shipley seems to be the RB1 for Clemson and Lyn-J Dixon has now transferred. This isn’t the best match-up, but Shipley should get plenty of volume.

Calvin Tyler Jr (Utah St) $5,500 – Tyler Jr is averaging 19.9 FPPG this season.


Corey Kiner (LSU) $4,900 – Kiner rushed the ball 12 times last week, and it seems like he could be in line for more volume in the future.

Top Plays

Deven Thompkins (Utah St) $8,000 – Thompkins is averaging 31.9 FPPG this season and has 3 TDs. He’s an under the radar pick, who most people don’t know about. But he’s a superstar.

Kayshon Boutte (LSU) $7,700 – Boutte is the WR1 for LSU, and he’s averaging 27.1 FPPG this season.

Khalil Shakir (Boise St) $7,400 – Shakir is one of my favorite plays of the week and my favorite WR play. He has a good piece and match-up.

Best Value

Rashee Rice (SMU) $6,300 – Rice is in a high powered offense, and he’s averaging 18.2 FPPG this season. He gets a lot of volume each week and has a good price tag.

Makai Polk (Miss St) $6,200 – Polk caught 11 passes last week, and he seems like he could be a player that starts getting more volume.

Michael Mayer (Notre Dame) $5,700 – Mayer had his worst week of the season last week vs Purdue. He only caught 1 pass for 5 yards. He had 16 catches the previous two weeks combined. This week vs Wisconsin the Irish will need him to step up big.

Darkhorse Plays

Jaden Walley (Miss St) $4,800 – Walley has 3 TDs this season and gets a ton of targets. I like this value play this week.

Xavier Worthy (Texas) $4,700 – Worthy is a true freshman who’s starting to emerge as a top receiving option. Last week, he caught 7 passes, and he has excellent value this week for the price.

Reggie Roberson Jr (SMU) $4,500 – There is a ton of value here. The volume is there for Roberson, and he has a high ceiling.

Jalen Wydermyer (Texas A&M) $4,300 – Wydermyer is always a red zone threat and always a good price.

Deion Smith (LSU) $4,000 – Smith caught 5 passes for 135 yards last week, and for this price, all you need is a few catches or a TD.

Justin McGriff (Utah St) $3,900 – McGriff has a low floor, which worries me. However, there is a ton of value for the price.
