Jalen Hurts (Oklahoma): FD 12,000 (FD Only)
Hurts has had an amazing season so far for the Sooners, averaging 100 rushing yards per game while throwing for over 300 yards per game. With the value we have on this slate, Hurts is a must for cash games and a very strong Gpp play. Don’t over think this one, TCU will not be able to slow him down.
Also consider: J. Burrow (LSU)
Brock Purdy (Iowa State): DK 8,100 (DK Only)
Jalen Hurts is not on the DK slate this week, and the guys at the top do not really stick out as must plays for me this week. The highest priced guy that I would be looking at on DK if I were to pay up at QB is Brock Purdy. Purdy gets a great match-up this week, facing a Kansas Jayhawk defense that has been getting pounded on the ground and through the air. Kansas is allowing nearly 250 yards passing per game this year, and has had an issue with giving up explosive plays. I expect Iowa State to lean on the run this week a little more than the pass, but Purdy is always a threat to punch in a few rushing TD’s around the goal line and he definitely has the ability to hit the big play. He is not the safest play but I believe he makes for a great gpp option.
Also consider: C. Brewer (BAY); S. Buechele (SMU); M. Perry (NAVY)
Kedon Slovis (USC): FD 9,300 DK 7,000
The USC vs UCLA game should be a great game environment to target this week. The over/under is sitting at 66 right now, which is one of the highest on the slate. USC is throwing the ball at over a 50% clip so far this season, and why wouldn’t you when you have 3 stud wide receivers to throw the ball too? UCLA is sitting at 122nd in the nation this year at defending the pass. UCLA is allowing 305 yards per game through the air. I love stacking Slovis with two of his pass catchers this week in tournaments. Slovis is in prime position to have a really big outing. I do like the FD price on Slovis more than I like his price on DK.
Also consider: A. Martinez (NEB); M. Duggan (TCU)
Dru Brown (Oklahoma State): DK 4,900 (DK Only)
Dru Brown will be starting for Spencer Sanders this week in OK States match up vs West Virginia. At his price of 4,900 he is virtually a lock. We get a starting quarterback at under 5k, and he is playing one of the worst defenses in the nation. Take the savings that he presents and move on.
Chubba Hubbard (Oklahoma State): DK 8,900 (DK Only)
I feel like it is a weekly occurrence for me to write up Chubba. He is so good! He is having a phenomenal season so far and this week he gets to face a West Virginia defense that has really struggled vs. the run allowing nearly 170 rush yards per game. Hubbard also gets the added benefit of not having a mobile quarterback playing this week. Hubbard’s involvement in the passing game has been increasing recently, I think they will lean on Chubba a good amount this week. I hate to say he is a lock at his almost 9k price tag, but man his production is hard to pass up.
Also consider: J. Taylor is a really strong play on FD; X. Jones (SMU)
Joshua Kelley (UCLA): FD 8,800 DK 6,700
Again, this game environment is going to be one I want to have pretty decent exposure too. Kelley has been playing really good as of late. He is averaging over 20 rush attempts per game and over 100 yards per game. He is only 60 yards shy of 1,000 yards for the season. Kelley also has 10 rushing touchdowns on the season. USC is allowing nearly 170 rushing yards per game. Kelley makes for a very good play on both sites, and I expect I will have lots of him this week.
Also consider: Jamale Carothers (Navy); R. Boyd (Ark); D. Swift (UGA); D. Mills (NEB); J. Hawkins (LOU)– one of my favorite plays on DK.
James Proche (SMU): FD 9,400 DK 7,700
Proche will be locked into both of my cash lineups on DK and FD. Proche’s target volume right now is insane! Proche is averaging 17.3 targets per game over the last 4 weeks! Proche has 88 receptions on the year for over 1000 yards and also has 12 touchdowns. With Roberson out, Proche will continue to get extra looks. He will be facing a suspect Navy secondary, which makes him a great play this week!
Also consider: J. Chase (LSU); J. Jefferson (LSU); M. Pittman (USC)
Tyler Vaughns (USC): FD 8,200 DK 5,600
Have I mentioned how much I love this USC vs UCLA game? I want heavy exposure to it, and what better way to get exposure to it than to play one of the top wide receivers in the game. Vaughns missed a few weeks due to injury, but came back last week and played on a limited snap count. This week it appears that he should be receiving his normal allotment of snaps and if that ends up being the case, he makes for a phenomenal play this week at his price, facing the 122nd ranked pass defense in the UCLA Bruins. He is way to cheap on DK for what he can do. I will keep our discord community updated on his injury status, but if he is a full go, I will have heavy exposure to him!
