Top Plays

  • Zach Wilson, BYU, $9,500
    • Wilson has been on 🔥 this season. He’s averaging 33.7 FPPG and has a great match-up vs UTSA.
  • Sam Ehlinger, Texas, $9,200
    • The Red River Shootout should be high scoring since both teams have struggled on Defense. Ehlinger is averaging 38.3 FPPG so he’s been a DFS star.
  • Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma, $8,900
    • Rattler is averaging 29.6 FPPG this season and has 10 TDs. Rattler has been a good play in DFS but his 4 INTs have been heavy factors in the Sooners 0-2 Big 12 start.

Best Value Plays

  • Brock Purdy, Iowa St, $7,400
    • Purdy has a great match-up vs Texas Tech who cant stop anyone. Purdy is only averaging 13.1 FPPG this season so he’s due for a breakout week, no better opponent than Texas Tech to get things going.
  • Max Duggan, TCU, $7,300
    • Duggan has a decent matchup vs Kansas State and he’s been reliable in 1.5 games of action this season.
  • Sam Howell, UNC, $7,000
    • Virginia Tech was without 6 or so DBs last week and could be without a few this week. The forecast is showing rain but if it’s clear I expect Howell to have a productive day.
  • Brennan Armstrong, Virginia, $6,800
    • The NC State defense was shredded by Kenny Pickett and Armstrong is also a capable runner. Armstrong showed toughness & potential vs Clemson, this is a quality play this week.
  • Collin Hill, South Carolina, $6,400
    • This could be the best value play of the week at QB. You get Hill for a decent price and the matchup is solid vs Vanderbilt.
  • Tommy Devito, Syracuse, $5,500
    • Devito is a scary play let’s be honest but you get a starting QB for a great price who’s capable of getting you 10-15 Fantasy Points.

Avoid 🚫

  • Jarrett Guarantano, Tennessee $6,100
    • The Georgia defense is legit. This is a bad match-up for Guarantano.

Running Backs

Top Plays

  •  Breece Hall, Iowa St, $8,600
    • Hall is averaging an outstanding 30.5 FPPG and has an excellent match-up vs Texas Tech.
  • Khalil Herbert, Virginia Tech, $8,100
    • Herbert leads the nation with 12 yards per carry. The VT O-Line is incredible. Expect Herbert to be the go to guy on Saturday.

Best Value Plays 

  • Zamir White, Georgia, $7,200
    • White is the RB1 in an offense that wants to establish the run, I expect at least 1-2 TDs from White vs the vols.
  • Lopini Katoa $6,800 & Tyler Allgeier, BYU, $6,600
    • The BYU RB duo are both great plays as far as the match-up. I expect both to score in this game. The biggest question is which is the better play? To be honest it’s a coin flip each week. So if you’re not sure, play both.
  • Kevin Harris, South Carolina, $6,700
    • Harris is a tough, physical runner who impressed me last week vs Florida. This season he’s averaging 22.6 FPPG and has a good match-up vs Vanderbilt.
  • Wayne Taulapapa, Virginia, $6,200
    • Wake Forest and Virginia Tech shredded the Wolfpack Defense running the ball and UVA has an experienced O-Line which should result in a good game for Taulapapa.
  • Mateo Durant, Duke, $4,000
    • This is a great value play if you’re looking for a low priced RB to load up at QB and WR.

Avoid 🚫

  • Sincere McCormick, UTSA $6,400
    • McCormick is a great RB who’s averaging 24.7 FPPG but this match-up isn’t ideal.

Wide Receivers

Top Plays

  • Gunner Romney, BYU, $8,200
    • Romney has been incredible all season and he has speed. He’s averaging 24.8 FPPG and has another great matchup.
  • Shi Smith, South Carolina, $7,600
    • Smith is averaging 29.6 FPPG and is the Gamecocks go to target.
  • Joshua Moore, Texas, $7,500
    • You can’t go wrong with a Longhorn or Sooner receiver in this game.
  • Kyle Pitts, Florida, $7,200
    • Pitts has 6 Touchdowns in 8 quarters of play. He’s the Gators #1 Target and #1 Redzone Target.

Best Value Plays 

  • Charleston Rambo, Oklahoma, $7,000
    • Rambo is only averaging 14.7 FPPG this season but he’s the sooners #1 WR with a great matchup this weekend.
  • Dax Milne, BYU, $6,800
    • Milne is the #2 WR for BYU but he’s caught more passes than Romney. He’s averaging 18.8 FPPG this season and has an excellent matchup.
  • KeSean Carter, Texas Tech, $6,400
    • Carter has been a good play every week in DFS averaging 22.5 FPPG. Henry Colombi is a viable backup QB so don’t let Bowman potentially being out stop you from playing Carter.
  • Hunter Long, Boston College, $5,900
    • Long has 25 catches for 270 yards 2 TDs in three games this season. He’s a big red zone threat and one of the top TEs in CFB.
  • Dyami Brown $5,600 and Dazz Newsome $5,400, UNC
    • If the weather is clear these two will be good plays especially if multiple VT DBs are out again.
  • Jake Smith, Texas, $5,200
    • Smith returned last week after missing the first two games and hauled in a TD.
  • Terrell Jana, Virginia, $4,800
    • Jana is the Hoos WR1 and NC State gave up over 400 yards through the air last week.
  • Tre Turner, Virginia Tech, $4,100
    • Turner is the Hokies top Wide Receiver and he’s from the state of North Carolina looking to have a big game in his home state. VT uses Turner in the Jet Sweep game a lot as well.
  • Noah Gray, Duke, $4,000
    • Gray is always a great price on DraftKings and he always provides points. This season he has 19 catches for 203 yards and 2 TDs.
  • Lavel Davis, Virginia, $4,000
    • Davis the 6’7″ true freshman is a match-up nightmare and big red zone threat. For the price on DraftKings, you get good value with this play.
