Top Plays

Sam Howell (UNC) $9,200Howell has a high ceiling, even though he’s been inconsistent this season. I like the match-up. Howell has a big game.

Kenny Pickett (Pitt) $8,400Pickett is having a big season, and the Panthers will struggle to run the ball vs VT. Expect a big game for Pickett and the passing attack.

Emory Jones (Florida) $8,300Jones gets you a good amount of points rushing each week, and he has a favorable match-up vs LSU.

Desmond Ridder (Cincinnati) $8,100 Ridder is always a solid play. Expect Jerome Ford to have a big game at RB. So I’d play him instead of Ridder. But you can never go wrong with this play. Ridder will get you 15-30 points every single week.

Best Value Plays

Adrian Martinez (Nebraska) $7,900Martinez has been playing well and racking up fantasy points. He’s averaged 34 fantasy points his last two games. He’s a good bet for 20-30 points this week.

Casey Thompson (Texas) $7,800Thompson went off last week for 36.1 points. His match-up this week is tougher. But for this price, he’s still a good value.

KJ Jefferson (Arkansas) $7,500Jefferson had 53.5 fantasy points last week. He’s a threat on the ground and on the goal line. His match-up isn’t as good as last week’s, but he should still get you 15-25 points.

Payton Thorne (Michigan St) $7,300I really like playing MSU RB Kenneth Walker III this week. But if you want to get contrarian, play Thorne. He’s averaging 23.9 FPPG and has been consistently solid.

Spencer Sanders (Oklahoma St) $7,100Sanders has a good match-up vs Texas this week and this price is reasonable.

Tyler Van Dyke (Miami) $6,900UNC hasn’t been that impressive and Van Dyke has a good price. He probably won’t be highly owned and will be a good contrarian play.

Value Longshots

Zach Calzada (Texas A&M) $6,300Calzada has a great match-up vs Missouri and he’s dirt cheap for a QB.

Gerry Bohanon (Baylor) $6,300Bohanon doesn’t have a great match-up, but it’s also not a terrible one. Last week, he shredded WVU and should get you 15-20 fantasy points.

Bo Nix (Auburn) $6,000Bo Nix is an excellent play this week because of this cheap price.

Tanner Morgan (Minnesota) $5,400If you want to punt the QB position this week, then Morgan is your play. He has a great price and could still get you 15+ points.

Running Backs

Top Plays

Bijan Robinson (Texas) $8,900Robinson is an elite talent, and even though he doesn’t have the best match-up, he will still find a way to produce in DFS.

Best Value Plays

Jerome Ford (Cincinnati) $7,200I love this play this week. Ford is a TD machine and could easily get you 2 scores or more.

Jaylen Warren (Oklahoma St) $7,100Kennedy Brooks ran all over Texas last week, and he hadn’t done much all year before that. Warren has looked impressive and should find a way to be productive on Saturday.

Kenneth Walker III (Michigan St) $6,700HOLY S***! What a steal here! This is a MUST play.

Isaiah Spiller (Texas A&M) $6,600Missouri absolutely sucks vs the run. This is a steal for just $6,600. Go play Spiller this week.

Tyler Goodson (Iowa) $6,500Goodson is the focal point of the Hawkeyes offense and will get plenty of touches. This is also a good value price for him.

Ty Chandler (UNC) $6,300In an offense that has potential to score 35+ points, expect Chandler to get quite a few touches and find the end zone.

Value Longshots

Tank Bigsby (Auburn) $5,800If you want an excellent value play at RB, this is the one. Bigsby has a ton of upside.

Israel Abanikanda (Pitt) $5,600Abanikanda has 21.5 & 23 Fantasy Points in his last two games.

Raheem Blackshear (Virginia Tech) $5,200Blackshear is a threat in the passing attack, and VT hasn’t been a deep threat throwing team this season. Expect Blackshear to get a few catches and 10+ rushes.

Devon Achane (Texas A&M) $5,100Achane consistently gets 15 points a week. He has a great match-up vs Missouri who has already fired their Linebackers coach because they’re so bad vs the run.


Top Plays

Josh Downs (UNC) $8,700Downs has an excellent match-up, and he finds ways to produce every week.

Jordan Addison (Pitt) $8,000Addison produces every week averaging 29 FPPG. His matchup isn’t the greatest vs VT especially if Jermaine Waller guards him but he will still get 6+catches.

Xavier Worthy (Texas) $7,400 – Expect Worthy to be a popular play this week. You can’t go wrong playing him, but his match-up is tougher this week than last week.

Alec Pierce (Cincinnati) $6,800 Pierce is a big red zone threat and a top target for Ridder.

Treylon Burks (Arkansas) $6,600 – Burks doesn’t have a great match-up, but he’s capable of scoring and producing fantasy points vs anyone.

Jalen Nailor (Michigan St) $6,200 – Nailor went off last week for 48.1 Fantasy Points. Michigan State has a QB who can spread the ball around and I’d expect another good week for Nailor.

Charleston Rambo (Miami) $6,100 – Expect Miami to be trailing in this game and for them to have to air it out. Rambo is a top receiver on the team and I expect him to get 5+ catches.

Ty Fryfogle (Indiana) $5,300 – Fryfogle is only averaging 11 FPPG this season, but he’s always a home run threat with a chance for a big game. I also love the match-up vs Michigan State, so I’m definitely playing him this week.

Tyquan Thornton (Baylor) $5,200 – Thornton went off last week for 41.7 points. While that won’t happen two straight weeks, Thornton will be an excellent value play.

Tre Turner (Virginia Tech) $5,000 – Turner is a big play threat for VT and he gets involved in the run game often with jet sweeps. He has a good price and should be a decent play.

Demetris Robertson (Auburn) $4,500 – If Bo Nix has a big game, there’s a good chance Robertson does as well, and this price is very cheap.

Value Longshots

Ainias Smith (Texas A&M) $4,400 – Smith had 26 fantasy points last week. If the Aggies get it going through the air vs Missouri, Smith will be the beneficiary.

Peyton Hendershot (Indiana) $4,300 – I played Hendershot last week as a cheap dart throw, and he got me 13.8 points. I expect him to have a similar impact this week, as he’s always a red zone threat.

Jalen Wydermyer (Texas A&M) $3,900 – Wydermyer is dirt cheap, but has high upside. He’s always a red zone threat.

Brian Thomas Jr (LSU) $3,700 & Malik Nabers (LSU) $3,000 – These two plays are attractive this week because LSU will be without WR Kayshon Boutte.
