Top Plays

Caleb Williams $10,900
Bo Nix $10,800
Dillon Gabriel $9,800
Carson Beck $9,000
Jordan McCloud $8,300

• There’s no way I can pay 10.9K for Caleb Williams going up against a UCLA team who’s defense isn’t bad, that price would cripple the rest of your lineup. Bo Nix at 10.8K is extremely expensive but I believe he’s capable of a 35+ point game as he continues to improve his Heisman Stock. Dillon Gabriel is averaging 33.6 FPPG and has a great matchup vs BYU. The Tennessee Vols are overrated and I believe Carson Beck is capable of shredding them so at 9K he’s a play I like. My favorite play and price adjusted play of these five is Jordan McCloud. McCloud is averaging 29 FPPG and has a matchup vs Appalachian State that could be high scoring.

Best Value Plays

Sam Hartman $7,500
Joey Aguilar $7,500
Cade Klubnik $7,300

• I believe Sam Hartman is a good play this week vs his old team Wake Forest. I also believe he could be highly owned which makes me pivot to Joey Aguilar for the same 7.5K price. Aguilar is the Appalachian State signal caller and he’s averaging 24.6 FPPG. Cade Klubnik has his best game of the season last week and gets a matchup vs UNC who was tore apart by a depleted Duke team. 

Longshot Play

Noah Fifita $6,800

• Last week I mentioned playing Fifita and he paid off. This week he’s priced too low once again, with the weapons he has at RB/WR he’s always capable of a big game.


Top Plays

Ollie Gordon II $8,800
Blake Corum $8,400
Audric Estime $8,000
Bucky Irving $7,600

• Last week Ollie Gordon had his worst game of the season and the Cowboys were blown out by UCF. This week I expect Oklahoma State to bounce back vs Houston and I want Gordon II in my lineups. Michigan doesn’t need to overuse Blake Corum this week vs Maryland because they have a big showdown vs Ohio State next week so I’m going to pass on Corum. Estime is averaging 22 FPPG this season and has a wonderful matchup vs the Demon Deacons. Irving is the cheapest of the bunch here and I believe he could be the best play. He’s averaging 24.4 FPPG and has a favorable matchup vs ASU.

Best Value Plays

Omarion Hampton $7,300
Jawhar Jordan $7,200
Nate Noel $6,500
Carson Steele $6,400
Phil Mafah $5,700
Gavin Sawchuk $5,500

• Carson Steele is a player I want in my lineups this week vs USC. The matchup is great and the Bruins are banged up at QB so I expect plenty of volume for Steele. Hampton & Jordan are both capable of big games but they both have tougher matchups this week. Gavin Sawchuk the Sooners RB has a great matchup vs BYU and I believe he finds the endzone more than once.

Longshot Plays

Jonah Coleman $5,000
Ty’Son Lawton $4,600
DJ Williams $3,200

• Williams got a lot of volume last week for Arizona so at 3.2K I’m willing to take some chances on him. Ty’Son Lawton is in a JMU backfield that can use up to three RBs but he’s the pass catching RB in that group and he also gets plenty of opportunities in the red zone.


Top Plays

Troy Franklin $8,700
Tez Walker $8,100
Tez Johnson $7,300

• Tez Johnson is the best price adjusted play of these three. He’s averaging 20.2 FPPG and Bo Nix targets him a ton. Troy Franklin is obviously a good matchup any week and Tez Walker has the upside, but has a tough matchup.

Best Value Plays

Tahj Washington $7,000
Drake Stoops $6,800
Tetairoa McMillan $6,800
Jacob Cowing $6,700
Xavier Restrepo $6,600
Ladd McConkey $6,500
Nic Anderson $6,300
Rashod Owens $5,600
Reggie Brown $5,600
Elijah Sarratt $5,500

• I love the JMU WRs here in Brown and Sarratt and I’ll probably double stack them with McCloud. Rashod Owens gets a ton of volume so 5.6K is too cheap for him. Drake Stoops has been playing unbelievable and for 6.8K he’s a steal, I also like his teammate Nic Anderson at 6.3K. The Arizona WRs McMillan and Cowing are incredible, Cowing is banged up so if for some reason he doesn’t play then I’d love McMillan even more.

Longshot Plays

Tyler Brown $4,900
Zach Horton $4,900
Kaedin Robinson $4,900
Colbie Young $4,300
Jake Briningstool $4,000
Montana Lemonious Craig $3,800

• Lemonious-Craig is a WR for Arizona who gets plenty of opportunities so for 3.8K he’s worth taking a shot on. Jake Briningstool is a consistent and solid TE for the Tigers so for 4K he’s a cheap play if you need him. If I play Joey Aguilar at QB then I’m stacking him with Kaedin Robinson. Tyler Brown is a Freshman WR for Clemson and the WR1, at 4.9K he’s a steal and stacking him with Klubnik would be a good contrarian play.
