QBs

Top Plays

Drake Maye $9,500
Jayden Daniels $9,000
Dillon Gabriel $8,900
Jordan Travis $8,700
Cam Ward $8,600
Quinn Ewers $8,500

• The Saturday DFS slate is loaded at QB this week. My favorite plays here are Jayden Daniels vs Missouri, Jordan Travis vs VT and Quinn Ewers vs Oklahoma. Jayden Daniels is averaging 37.7 FPPG this season and is my #1 QB play on the board. Jordan Travis has a favorable matchup vs VT who struggles vs Mobile QBs. Quinn Ewers is the cheapest of all of these players at 8.5K but could have better numbers than any, good price adjusted play on Ewers this week.

Best Value Plays

Taulia Tagovailoa $8,400
Kyle McCord $8,100
Cade Klubnik $8,000
Brady Cook $7,400
Garrett Shrader $7,200

• McCord at $8,100 is a fantastic play. The Truth is Maryland hasn’t played anyone all season except bad bad teams and McCord has a reasonable price tag. Last week I liked Klubnik as a contrarian low owned play and he had a good game, I expect another big game vs Wake Forest. Those are my favorite two plays here but Brady Cook is also a player who’s averaging 26.7 FPPG and has a matchup vs LSU who’s secondary looks very suspect.

Longshot Plays 

Graham Mertz $6,400
Dante Moore $6,000
Kyron Drones $5,400

• Mertz at 6.4K is an intriguing play to me. He has a favorable matchup vs Vanderbilt and could be in line for a big Fantasy Day. Dante Moore has a ton of upside and big play potential, I’m going to have a few shares of the True Freshman. Drones has a tough matchup vs Florida State but he’s a good punt option at QB who could backdoor you 20 points.

RBs

Top Plays 

Braelon Allen $8,400
TreVeyon Henderson $7,400

• Allen is the most expensive RB play but well worth it. Chez Mellusi is out for the season which means Allen will have a bigger workload. Henderson is back healthy this season and it’s showing. He has that burst and explosiveness from two years ago and I like his matchup vs Maryland. 

Best Value Plays 

Jonathon Brooks $6,700
Trey Benson $6,600
Will Shipley $6,400
RJ Harvey $6,100
LeQuint Allen $5,800
Montrell Johnson $5,800
Omarion Hampton $5,700
Carson Steele $5,600
Trevor Etienne $5,400

• This slate is loaded with value RB plays. Brooks, Harvey, Allen & Hampton are all averaging over 20 FPPG this season. Steele is a Steal at 5.6K and capable of a massive game. Trey Benson has a favorable matchup and Will Shipley should be able to run all over the Demon Deacons Defense. The Gators two RBs Johnson and Etienne are both excellent plays vs Vanderbilt. 

Longshot Plays 

Kyle Monangai $5,100
Daniel Hishaw Jr $4,700

• It’s slim pickings here for longshot RB plays. Monangai is averaging 18.7 FPPG and will be low owned. Hishaw Jr is averaging 10.2 FPPG and has been solid for the Jayhawks.

WRs/TEs

Top Plays

Marvin Harrison Jr $8,900
Emeka Egbuka $7,800
Ricky Pearsall $7,400
Luther Burden III $6,900
Keon Coleman $6,700

• The Ohio State WRs are always excellent plays, you just have to figure out which one has the best game. Pearsall is in line for a big game vs Vanderbilt and would be an excellent low owned stack with Graham Mertz. Burden III at $6,900 is a steal. He’s been outstanding this season and is 7th in my Heisman Rankings. 

Best Value Plays

Malik Nabers $6,500
Nate Mccollum $6,400
Xavier Worthy $6,300
Johnny Wilson $6,200
Andrel Anthony $6,100
Brian Thomas Jr $6,100
Jeshaun Jones $5,600
AD Mitchell $5,400

• Brian Thomas Jr at $6,100 is my favorite play this week no matter the position. He’s averaging 28.7 FPPG and has improved his draft stock drastically. Xavier Worthy at 6.3K is a play I’m looking to stack with Ewers, if Ja’Tavion Sanders is out that creates more looks for Worthy. AD Mitchell is a steal at 5.4K and you could save $900 if you stack him with Ewers. 

Longshot Plays

Eugene Wilson III $5,000
Jaheim Bell $4,300
Erick All $4,200
Skyler Bell $3,900
Dae’Quan Wright $3,500
Bryson Nesbit $3,500

• Eugene Wilson III at 5K is a perfect player to stack with Graham Mertz. Iowa QB Cade McNamara is out for the season and I expect Erick All to be a security blanket for the backup, so at 4.2K I want some shares of him. Jaheim Bell has an excellent matchup and could easily find the endzone vs VT. If you’re looking for a punt at WR to save money check out Tight Ends Bryson Nesbit (UNC) and Dae’Quan Wright (VT).
