Welcome CFB fans! Week 10 brings us our first week with no stud QB’s on the board. Which means this weeks not as simple as jam in Hurts/Burrows/Fields and make it work. Let’s take a look at a few plays to consider at each position!
Dillon Gabriel- Gabriel and the UCF offense has a slate high implied total of 46 points! Up against a bad Houston defense who is giving up 287 yards a game through the air, 459 yards total a game and 31 points a game.
Jamie Newman- CONFIRM HE IS STARTING BEFORE PLAYING! Newman is expected to play as long as he is medically cleared. Be sure to check his status before playing him. Newman averages a slate high 295 yards through the air plus another 45 on the ground. He is also responsible for a slate high 3.33 TD’s per game.
Jake Luton- If you look at Luton’s log you might be scratching your head at this pick. But keep in mind Luton’s last 2 games were against 2 very solid pass defenses in Cal (212 ypg) and Utah (175 ypg). In week 6 Luton took on a UCLA defense that allows 306 yards per game through the air and Luton went off for 40.1 DK points. This week he gets a Arizona squad who is giving up a whopping 311 yards per game through the air! Look for a big bounce back game here.
Max Duggan- Duggan is only a freshman and has been treated as such. He wasn’t asked to do much to start the season but has slowly been given more freedom to run the offense. Duggans response? 4 straight weeks of improved play in each game, topped off by his early career signature upset win over Texas. With Duggan rushing 13 times a piece the last 2 weeks and adding close to 30 pass attempts both weeks, his floor is fantastic for the price.
Chuba Hubbard– Simply put, VOLUME. 27 rush attempts a game and a whopping 172 yards per game. Not a great matchup, but that hasn’t mattered much for Chuba.
AJ Dillon- Comes at a slight discount to Chuba. 25 attempts a game for 130 yards a game. Syracuse is giving up 160 yards a game on the ground.
Kenneth Gainwell/Xavier Jones- FD ONLY BONUS- 2 STUD backs in a great DFS game where we see a 71.5 total and only a 6 point spread. Gainwell has 4 straight games over 30 FD points while Xavier Jones has 16+ in every game this season and gets a Memphis defense who is giving up 188 yards a game on the ground.
Otis Anderson- With Greg McRae already ruled out, Anderson once again is staring at the starting job. Last week he delivered with an insane 205 yard performance on only 17 carries (12 yards a carry!). The matchup is there for another big game as Houston gives up 172 yards per game on the ground.
Artavis Pierce/J.J. Taylor- Like the SMU/MEM game, this is a great game to stack. We have a 71.5 point implied total and only a 5.5 point spread. Neither team is great against the rush, especially Oregon State who is giving up a slate high 191 yards per game on the ground!
CJ Verdell-FD Bonus- Verdell has been a disappointment this year but finally burst through last week with a 51.3 point outburst. Oregon would be smart to go right back to him with USC getting pounded on the ground to the tune of 190 yards per game.
Isaiah Hodgins- 11.9 targets a game, 106 yards per game, 1.43 TDs per game against a defense giving up 311 yards per game through the air. Enough said.
Gabriel Davis– 11.3 targets per game, 114. yards per game, 1.25 TDs per game, team implied total of 46 points. 4 of last 5 games has gone over 33 DK points.
Rondale Moore- FD VALUE- Oops, FD seemed to miss the memo on Moore potentially returning this week. One of, if not the best WR in the nation is priced at 5k. IF HE STARTS, Moore is a FD LOCK.
Taye Barber- Barber debuted week 8 and has been fantastic both weeks with 9 catches for 131 yards combined. Look for Barber to continue to develop chemistry with Duggan. He won’t stay this cheap for long.
Devin Carter- Carter has been called a “rising star” in the NCState offense. Coming off a career day of 6 catches for 140 yards, Carter has big play upside at a value. Its only a matter of time before he breaks through for a TD.
