Top Plays

Sam Hartman (Wake Forest) $10,000Hartman has been spectacular and has a match-up vs a struggling UNC defense. You can’t go wrong with this play, but the price is too high for me.

Sam Howell (UNC) $9,800Howell has an opportunity to light up the scoreboard vs Wake Forest in what could be a high scoring game. Just like Hartman, this price is too high for me.

Matt Corral (Ole Miss) $9,600Check the injury report, as Corral might not play. But if he does, he will have a big game vs Liberty.

Malik Willis (Liberty) $9,300Willis will need to have a big game for Liberty to win, and he could be a productive fantasy player this week. This price scares me though, and I’ll look somewhere else for my QB.

Tanner Mordecai (SMU) $9,000 – Mordecai is an outstanding play this week. He’s averaging 34.2 FPPG this year and could get more points than that vs a weak Memphis defense.

Best Value Plays

Desmond Ridder (Cincinnati) $8,700 – Ridder once again has an excellent match-up. However,t he hasn’t taken advantage of it lately. He only had 11 points vs UCF and 14.6 vs Navy. This week he can get you 20-25 points if you’re willing to pay up for him.

CJ Stroud (Ohio St) $8,600I love this play for the value and the upside. Stroud is poised for a huge game vs Nebraska.

Gerry Bohanon (Baylor) $7,700Bohanon has been very productive this season averaging 22.1 FPPG.

Bo Nix (Auburn) $7,500 – Nix has a match-up that could be tough, but he’s been on fire lately. His last two games he has 30 and 29 Fantasy Points.

Adrian Martinez (Nebraska) $7,000Martinez could be in a situation to score a lot of fantasy points in a losing effort. Ohio State will win, but Martinez gets a rushing TD and 1-2 passing TDs.

Longshot Plays

Zach Calzada (Texas A&M) $6,400Calzada is low priced and has a match-up that could be tough, but he’s a good contrarian play.

Payton Thorne (Michigan St) $6,400 – Michigan State will try to rely on Kenneth Walker III, but Thorne could have a big game if Purdue controls the rushing attack.

Sean Clifford (Penn St) $6,000 – Clifford has a good match-up vs Maryland. He’s only averaging 19.7 FPPG, but he could have a big game here.

Jarret Doege (West Virginia) $5,700 – Doege had a big game last week vs Iowa State with 27.8 Fantasy Points. This week he has a tough match-up, but with this price tag you just need 12-20 points.

Tanner Morgan (Minnesota) $5,400 – This is a huge longshot. I don’t recommend this play unless you absolutely need it for roster construction.

Running Backs

Top Plays

Kenneth Walker III (Michigan St) $8,600 – Waker doesn’t particularly have the greatest match-up here, but he’s what I call “Match-up Proof”. He has a high ceiling and high floor.

Jerome Ford (Cincinnati) $8,300 – Ford is excellent at the goal line and also a threat to break open a long run. He’s averaging 26.3 FPPG this season and has an excellent match-up this week.

Treveyon Henderson (Ohio St) $7,900 – Henderson is averaging 26.3 FPPG this season and has a match-up this week that I love.

Kyren Williams (Notre Dame) $7,700 – I like this play for Williams. His price isn’t too steep and he has a decent match-up.

Best Value Plays

Abram Smith (Baylor) $7,300 – Smith has been one of the top RBs that nobody’s talking about. He’s averaging 23 FPPG this season and has a match-up vs TCU which he could take advantage of.

Zamir White (Missouri) $7,100 – Missouri is HORRIBLE vs the run. White can definitely take advantage of this match-up and be a productive fantasy player. My only concern is UGA doesn’t need to give White a ton of rushes because they’ll be winning big early.

Leddie Brown (West Virginia) $6,900 – Brown has a tough match-up, but he’s a workhorse who will get plenty of touches.

Tank Bigsby (Auburn) $6,800 – Tank has a tough match-up but has the ability to easily get you a TD and 100 yards.

Ty Chandler (UNC) $6,600 – Chandler is averaging 19.6 FPPG this season and could easily get you 20 points in this game which could be high scoring.

Longshot Plays

Snoop Conner (Ole Miss) $5,800 & Henry Parrish (Ole Miss) $4,900 – If Matt Corral plays, these two will obviously be excellent plays in a high scoring offense. Even if Corral doesn’t play, these two could get more work than usual to take some pressure off backup QB Luke Altmyer.


Top Plays

Josh Downs (UNC) $8,700 – Downs is my favorite WR play this week and it comes with a steep price, but he’ll be worth it.

Calvin Austin III (Memphis) $8,400 – If Seth Henigan plays at QB for Memphis this will be a great play. But check the injury report.

Jaquarii Roberson (Wake Forest) $8,000 – Roberson is an incredible play vs a UNC defense that hasn’t impressed me all season. Expect Roberson to get 8 catches for 125 yards 1 TD at a minimum.

Jahan Dotson (Penn St) $7,600 – Sean Clifford has an opportunity for a big game. And if Clifford has a big game, it probably means Dotson does as well.

David Bell (Purdue) $7,200 – Bell has potential for a massive game each week and Michigan State has some weaknesses in the pass defense. I love this play this week.

A.T. Perry (Wake Forest) $7,200 – Perry is averaging 21 FPPG this season and has a match-up I love. Get him in your lineups.

Best Value Plays

Garrett Wilson (Ohio St) $7,100 & Chris Olave (Ohio St) $6,900 – Both of these Buckeye WRs have high upside each week and have a match-up vs Nebraska they can take advantage of.

Jayden Reed (Michigan St) $6,400 – If Speedy Nailor is out, then Reed should get even more targets this week. And with high volume and this price, he’s a good play.

Danny Gray (SMU) $6,200, Reggie Roberson (SMU) $5,700 & Rashee Rice (SMU) $5,600 – I’ll tell you the same thing here with the SMU WRs that I tell people about Antonio Brown, Chris Godwin and Mike Evans in the NFL. One or two of these guys will absolutely go off and one won’t. It’s your guess to figure out who.

Michael Mayer (Notre Dame) $5,800 – It’s time for another big game for Mayer. I could see a 8 catch 100 yard 2 TD performance vs Navy.

Parker Washington (Penn St) $5,500 – Washington is always a cheap DFS option, and he delivered last week with 22 points.

Payne Durham (Purdue) $4,700 – Durham is averaging 14.4 FPPG and has a match-up I like.

Longshot Plays

Antoine Green (UNC) $4,300 – Green is my favorite longshot play of the week.

Austin Allen (Nebraska) $4,300 – Allen is a big red zone threat, and Nebraska might be forced to throw it around to keep up in this one.

Keandre Lambert-Smith (Penn St) $3,800 & Theo Johnson (Penn St) $3,400 – Lambert-Smith and Johnson have been productive the last few weeks, and for roster construction, I’ll have both in a few lineups.
