Top Plays

Bo Nix $9,800
Dillon Gabriel $9,300
Quinn Ewers $8,600
Seth Henigan $8,300

• Nix and Gabriel are excellent plays but you have to pay up, I don’t mind paying up for either one because I expect 30+ point games. Henigan at 8.3K is the contrarian play here and he should be lower owned which makes him an intriguing play. 

Best Value Plays

Garrett Greene $7,800
Kyle McCord $7,200

• Greene has a high floor because of the production he provides as a runner and his matchup doesn’t scare me. I know McCord doesn’t have an easy matchup vs Penn State but he’s at home with an elite WR to throw too, he’s a steal at 7.2K but could be highly owned.

Longshot Play

Kurtis Rourke $5,700

• Rourke is an AMAZING play at 5.7K and will be in 75% of my lineups. He’s averaging 16.3 FPPG and has a matchup vs WMU that I love.


Top Plays

Braelon Allen $7,700
Bucky Irving $7,500
Jonathon Brooks $7,400

• I’m interested to see how Wisconsin does without Tanner Mordecai because opposing teams could stack the box and make the Badgers pass. Allen is a top talent but I’m actually going to avoid him this week at 7.7K. Bucky Irving and Jonathon Brooks are the two plays at the top that I’m very interested in. Irving is averaging 21.5 FPPG and Brooks is averaging 24.8. Both have matchups I like and you cant go wrong with either play.

Best Value Plays

Jermaine Brown Jr $6,200
Jalen Buckley $5,000

• I love getting G5 players on these main slates, the casual fans won’t play them and they’ll miss out on great value. Brown Jr is averaging  19.5 FPPG and will get plenty of volume. Buckley is averaging 18.4 FPPG and is a perfect run back if you want to stack Rourke with his WRs.

Longshot Plays

Johnny Richardson $4,600
CJ Baxter $4,500
Rashod Dubinion $4,500
Sutton Smith $4,000

• Raheim Sanders has been ruled out I believe so Dubinion is an outstanding value at 4.5K. If Blake Watson doesn’t play for Memphis then Sutton Smith will be an outstanding longshot play for 4K. 


Top Plays

Marvin Harrison Jr $8,400
Troy Franklin $8,200
Xavier Worthy $6,500
Sam Wiglusz $6,400

• Harrison Jr is going to have a solid game every week but I might look other places this week. The matchup vs Penn State isn’t the best and it’s a lot of value plays I prefer instead of paying up to 8.4K for Harrison Jr. Franklin at 8.2K is an excellent pivot off of Harrison Jr, he’s $200 cheaper and has a matchup vs WSU that I love. If I’m playing Kurtis Rourke at QB I’m definitely stacking him with Sam Wiglusz at WR. Wiglusz hasn’t had as big of a season this year as he did last season but a massive game is coming and I don’t want to miss it.

Best Value Plays

Jalil Farooq $6,300
Andrew Armstrong $6,000
AD Mitchell $5,800
Roc Taylor $5,800
Miles Cross $5,000

• Farooq is an outstanding play this week vs UCF and I’m looking to stack him with Dillon Gabriel. AD Mitchell is averaging 14.9 FPPG and he’s only 5.8K. He has big play potential and I’m looking to stack him with Quinn Ewers. Miles Cross is a WR for Ohio and someone who will be low owned. Cross stacked with Rourke is a low priced stack with big boom potential.

Longshot Plays

Demeer Blankumsee $4,700
Anthony Sambucci $4,400
Tyler Warren $4,300

• Blankumsee has actually stepped up as the possible WR1 for Memphis so for 4.7K he will most likely be in 80% of my lineups. Sambucci is a WMU WR and someone you could play as a run back with your Ohio Bobcats stacks.
