Top Plays


Dorian Thompson-Robinson (UCLA): DK 9,000

DTR is not that great of a real life quarterback, but he has been a very good DFS QB for me in the past.  He has a soft matchup vs a beatable BGSU defense to start this season off.  UCLA should be able to do whatever they want in this matchup.  He is priced high, and if this game turns to a blowout I do think he may struggle paying off that price, but if it does stick close for a good bit of the game he could very well end up being the highest scoring QB on the slate.

Dillon Gabriel (OU): DK 9,200

Gabriel gets to make his Sooner debut Saturday.  He should be able to hit the ground running.  Gabriel is not a huge threat on the ground, but is enough of one where defenses will need to respect it.  I think Oklahoma has a chance to be the highest scoring team on the slate at days end.  Gabriel has a plethora of weapons at his disposal and could put up some massive numbers this year, starting this week vs. UTEP.

Others to consider:  D. Leary (NCST); T. Tagovailoa (MD); K. Jefferson (ARK); F. Harris (UTSA); J. Hall (BYU)

Running Backs:

Omarion Hampton (UNC):  DK 3,000

Hampton busted on to the scene in a big way last week in UNC’s season opener.  He is the first true freshman to rush for 100+ yards in the first game of his career, since Charlie “Choo Choo” Justice.  He will look to build on that this week vs a much tougher App State team.  Though Hampton is not necessarily listed as the starter, he will see plenty of carries, and it really is just a matter of time before he becomes the “dude” for the Heels.  Consider him a free square this week at only 3k.

Zach Evans (Ole Miss):  DK 7,800

I really think by time we get to the end of the season we will be mentioning Evans in Heisman conversations.  There have been nothing but good things coming out of camp about Evans.  Evans is obviously a phenomenal runner, but an aspect of his game that I think will be highlighted in his time here with Ole Miss, is his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.  I expect the Rebels to find all sorts of ways to get him out in space.  A big season is ahead of this super talented back, as is a big first week game! I’m ALL IN on Evans.

Others to consider: Z. Charbonette (UCLA); T. Henry (Houston); K. Milton (UGA)

Wide Receivers:

Nathaniel Dell (Houston): DK 7,800

Dell is one of the top returning wide receivers in the country, and is poised for a big time season.  He had nearly 100 receptions last season, topping 1,200 receiving yards.  I would not be surprised at all to see both of those totals increase this year.  UTSA was awful last year vs the pass, allowing teams to throw for over 260 yards per game.  Dell should be targeted heavily by Tune, and once he has the ball in his hands he can make defenders miss.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Dell puts up 150+ receiving yards with a couple scores.  I just do not see UTSA slowing him down.

Others to consider: B. Bowers (UGA); J. Downs (UNC); G. Romney (BYU); Z. Flowers (BC); T. Smith (UTEP)
