DeAndre Torrey, RB, North Texas ($10,000)
Torrey has been one of the stars of the North Texas offense throughout the season. Through 12 games, he’s averaging 95.3 yards and 1.3 touchdowns on 15.4 touches per game. North Texas could potentially be without their star receiver, Rico Bussey Jr., which could result in Torrey seeing a few more opportunities. He has also been on fire to end this season, as he’s averaging 32.2 fantasy points per game over his last four games. He makes an elite option after see limited touches through the first few games this season.
Jordan Love, QB, Utah State ($9,300)
This is the best game on the slate to attack, as the total is set at 68.5 points. Love has been a focal point of the Utah State offense, totaling 3,208 yards and 28 touchdowns on 374 pass attempts through 12 games. Love doesn’t feature much rushing potential in terms of yards, but he has scored six rushing touchdowns this season. This is a small slate, but Love could potentially go overlooked with some of the other quarterback options. He should be considered in all leagues, though.
Ty Lee, WR, Middle Tennessee ($9,000)
Lee has been an extremely consistent option for Middle Tennessee through his three seasons. That has been the case once again this season, as he’s averaging 5.6 receptions for 69.0 yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game. He ended the season with a bad game, but had scored 15+ fantasy points in each of his six games prior to that. Overall, he averaged 19.5 fantasy points per game over that span. This will be a tough matchup for Lee, but he’s surprisingly cheap as one of the better receiver options on the slate.
Justin McMillan, QB, Tulane ($8,800)
McMillan has only played in a few games this season, but he has found some success in those games. Overall, he has thrown for 1,159 yards and nine touchdowns on 136 pass attempts. He has also added 166 yards and four touchdowns on the ground this season. He certainly comes with risk, which has kept his price tag low, but he has scored 35.74 and 28.08 fantasy points in two of his last three games. He is playing in a game set at 61 points, making him an elite tournament option on this slate.
Corey Sutton, WR, Appalachian State ($8,000)
Sutton isn’t exactly an elite option, but it isn’t very often you get a number one receiver for this cheap. He’s averaging 3.0 receptions for 57.9 yards and 0.7 touchdowns through 12 games. He struggled in his last game, but was able to score 21.7 and 18.1 fantasy points in his two games prior to that. Sutton is a touchdown threat for Appalachian State, and he could potentially go overlooked in this matchup. He comes with terrible risk, but could be a dominant tournament option.
Kyle Williams, WR, Arizona State ($7,900)
Williams is coming off of a disappointing season, but he has totaled 40 receptions for 432 yards and one touchdown. He ranks second on the team in receptions and receiving yards behind N’Keal Harry. Harry has announced that he’ll be entering the NFL Draft, though, and he won’t be playing in this game. Someone has to take over as the top receiver for Arizona State, and Williams is the most likely pick. Frank Darby is another option that can be considered, but Williams profiles as the better player at this point.
