Austin Reed (WKU): DK 9,000
Western Kentucky is the top offense to target on this weekends slate. They were one of the top scoring offenses in the nation last year, which was led by Bailey Zappe, who now plays for the New England Patriots. Zappe threw for an impressive 6000 yards last year in this high octane offense. Oh and did I mention that he threw 62 touchdowns! This offense is QB and WR friendly, and will be an offense I target heavily. Austin Reed is a talented passer himself. Probably not quite as talented as his predecessor, but he definitely has the arm talent to succeed in this offense. He also has plenty of weapons to get the ball too, including one of my favorite wide receivers on the slate, who I will touch on later, in Daewood Davis. Play Reed with confidence, but also know so will everyone else. I, however, will eat the chalk and look to get different on other areas.
Jordan Travis (FSU): DK 8,800
Travis is a dual threat QB, who has received praise throughout fall camp in regards to the development of his arm talent. He is a super talented runner, and if he has made the strides in the passing game that are being reported, he could be in for a big year. He played very good football down the closing stretch for the Seminoles last season and surely will be looking to build on that success. FSU gets a very good matchup this week, facing a Duquesne team that they outclass in just about every area on the field. Travis ran for over 500 yards last year with 7 touchdowns, including three games where he ran for over 100 yards. I expect he and this FSU squad to dominate this game, unlike what they did last year vs. another FCS squad.
Others to consider: C. Thompson (Nebraska), L. Bonner (Utah State)
Aidan Robbins (UNLV): DK 3,300
Robbins has won the starting RB role for this UNLV squad, after transferring in from Louisville. I expect he will carry a pretty decent workload in this game, as the UNLV QB battle has yet to be settled. Robbins is a big back, standing at 6’3 and 225 lbs. He is basically free this weekend which should free up some salary to spend up on some of your other positions.
Calvin Tyler Jr. (UTST): DK 8,100
Tyler was very productive last season for Utah State, running for nearly 900 yards and 7 touchdowns. I expect even more production from him this season. Utah State come in as heavy favorites in this game, and should be able to dominate the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. Uconn was atrocious last year vs. the run allowing teams to average 202 yards per game. Tyler is the highest priced RB on the slate, but for good reason. He could absolutely smash in this spot, and if UConn can find a way to keep this score somewhat respectable, and Tyler sees a full games workload, he could easily be the highest scoring RB on the slate.
Others to consider: T. Ward (FSU); T. Swen (WYO); E. Hull (NW); C. Brown (ILL)
Daewood Davis (WKU): DK 4,800
I can promise you one thing, there will not be many, if anymore slates this year where we get a WR, who is on the Biletnikoff watch list for the Nations top receiver, priced below 5k. Not to mention is playing for one of the most high octane passing games in the country. He averaged around 3 receptions and 55 yards per game last season, but is expected to take on a much larger role this year. He and Malachi Corley should form a very formidable duo for this Hilltopper squad. I think paring the two together with Austin Reed is a very viable strategy, but it will be a chalky stack for sure. However, if only picking one, I am going to go with Davis and his nearly 3k savings over teammate Corley.
Others to consider: D. McCrary (APSU); J. McGriff (UTST); T. Palmer (NEB); B. Cobbs (UTST); M. Corley (WKU)
