Top Plays

Jaxson Dart $9,700
Shedeur Sanders $9,400
Will Howard $8,900
Michael Pratt $8,800

• Sanders threw for 510 yards 5 TDs last week and Colorado has more buzz surrounding them than any team in College Football. With that being said I don’t blame anyone who wants to play him but he’s a fade for me this week. I don’t want to pay $9,400 for a high owned QB, I’ll take my chances elsewhere. Dart and Pratt face each other this week and both should be excellent plays but I really like Will Howard as a contrarian play. Howard faces off vs Troy who allowed 30 points to FCS Stephen F. Austin last week.

Best Value Plays

Sam Hartman $8,600
Grant Wells $7,400
Jeff Sims $7,200

• I highly doubt anyone plays Grant Wells or Jeff Sims this week and that would make them excellent contrarian pivots. The truth is that Jeff Sims is a turnover machine & makes horrible decisions BUT I don’t think the Colorado Defense is the best either so Sims should have an opportunity to produce. Virginia Tech couldn’t run block to save their lives vs ODU but did well Pass Blocking. I expect Grant Wells to continue slinging the rock and putting up good DFS numbers.

Longshot Plays

Cam Fancher $6,300
Hudson Card $6,000
Jordan McCloud $5,000

• Hudson Card at 6K is the biggest steal at QB this week. The VT defense is solid but gave up a lot of rushing yards to the QB last week. Jordan McCloud is the QB for JMU and at 5K you get a very cheap price for a player capable of getting you 15+ points.


Top Plays

Blake Corum $8,400
Quinshon Judkins $8,100
Ray Davis $7,700

• You can never go wrong with Corum because he’s going to produce every week, however his price tag is steep and I’m going to look at a few cheaper options this week. Quinshon Judkins is pretty much a steal at 8.1K and I’m willing to roster him in many lineups this week as my RB1. Ray Davis is going to produce this week vs Eastern Kentucky but you have to always remember to be careful with players facing off vs FCS teams.

Best Value Plays

Dylan Edwards $6,500
Devin Mockobee $6,300
Treshaun Ward $6,200
Kimani Vidal $5,900
DJ Giddens $5,800

• Ward and Giddens have good matchups vs Troy and you get both at a discount price. Edwards is a good value at 6.5K but I’ll fade him if he’s highly owned which I’m expecting him to be. Mockobee could be a good bet for a Goal Line TD or 100 rushing yards because I believe the Hokies will struggle to defend the run.


Rasheen Ali $4,800
Kaelon Black $4,200

• Call 911 immediately!!!!! Rasheen Ali is $4,800. Ali will be highly owned but for the pricetag he will be in almost all of my lineups. Kaelon Black the JMU RB is very cheap at $4,200 and I think he’s a good contrarian play off of Ali if you want to fade Ali.


Top Plays

Tre Harris $7,800
Xavier Weaver $7,200
Evan Stewart $7,100

• The top plays at WR this week isn’t exactly “sexy”. These plays have an opportunity to be great plays but nothing stands out that I’m thrilled to play. Tre Harris scored 46.3 points last week and looks to be the go to receiver for Ole Miss. 

Best Value Plays

Ali Jennings III $6,700
Jayden Thomas $6,400
Phillip Brooks $6,300
Jha’Quan Jackson $6,300
Colbie Young $5,900
Jaylin Lane $5,200
Alex Bullock $4,900

• Like I mentioned earlier the VT run blocking is atrocious and I expect them to find success throwing to their new Transfer Weapons like Ali Jennings III and Jaylin Lane. Jayden Thomas will be a good contrarian play with upside. If I have Will Howard in my lineup at QB I’m going to stack him with Phillip Brooks. That will be a low owned stack that could put you over the edge. Bullock is only 4.9K and I highly doubt many people play him or Jeff Sims so stacking them together is a way to get different and maybe it could put you over the top.

Longshot Plays

Deion Burks $4,800
Malachi Fields $4,700
Dane Key $4,700
Reggie Brown $4,500
Xavier Restrepo $4,100
Brant Kuithe $3,700
Michael Trigg $3,700
Dae’Quan Wright $3,200

• Burks went off last week for Purdue in a losing effort vs Fresno State, he scored 34.2 Fantasy Points and has a good connection with Hudson Card. Brown is a good contrarian play for JMU as he faces off vs UVA, I expect him to be very low owned. Restrepo is one of the best WR plays of the week at this price tag, he catches a lot of passes and is targeted often. If Brant Kuithe plays he’s obviously a huge steal at 3.7K. Dae’Quan Wright is a name you might not know. The VT TE will be relied on heavily with Nick Gallo out for the season and he’s an extremely athletic player.
