Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma ($10,600)
It’s difficult to ignore D’Eriq King on this slate, but it’s impossible to ignore Oklahoma’s Vegas line. Oklahoma is a -10.5 point favorite in a game set at 78 points. They feature the highest implied team total on the slate this weekend. Murray is their star player, throwing for 2,329 yards and 28 touchdowns on 183 pass attempts. He has also added 474 yards and six touchdowns on the ground this season. He has thrown for three or more touchdowns in each of his last seven games, and Murray comes with elite upside in this matchup.
AJ Dillon, RB, Boston College ($9,800)
Dillon was considered a Heisman candidate early this season, but injuries have removed him from that conversation. He has looked outstanding when healthy, though, as he’s averaging 133.5 yards and 1.2 touchdowns on 23.0 carries per game. He doesn’t add much in the passing game, but Dillon should continue to see plenty of carries in a game that is expected to stay close. He comes with tremendous touchdown potential, and he’s a player that may go overlooked with the other elite options on the slate.
Charlie Brewer, QB, Baylor ($9,100)
Brewer was forced from his last game with a concussion, but he has passed the protocol to play this week. He gets a great matchup against Oklahoma State, who has struggled against the pass this season. Brewer looked outstanding through his first five games of the season, averaging 21.8 fantasy points in those games. There’s very little reason to believe he won’t be able to find similar success in a game set at 68 points. The Brewers are +8 point underdogs, suggesting they will throw for the majority of the game, as well.
James Proche, WR, SMU ($9,300)
Proche could potentially go overlooked because of the other known commodities around his price tag. He has been an elite option this season, though, leading SMU in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns by a wide margin. Overall, Proche is averaging 6.9 receptions for 86.4 yards and 1.0 touchdown per game this season. He has recorded six or more receptions in each of his last six games, and he should see a healthy number of targets in what should be a high scoring game once again this week.
Emanuel Hall, WR, Missouri ($8,400)
Hall is priced down because of a recent injury, but he’s probable to play this week. He has only played in three games this season, but still leads Missouri in receiving yards. Before his injury, Hall averaged 6.0 receptions for 143.3 yards and 1.0 touchdown per game. He has also totaled over 150 yards and one touchdown in two games this season. This is a tough matchup for Hall, but it’s impossible to ignore him at this price tag.
Lamical Perine, RB, Florida ($8,000)
Perine saw a limited role early in the season, but that role has expanded over his last three games. In those games, Perine is averaging 122.7 yards and 1.0 touchdown (19.1 fantasy points) on 19.7 touches per game. He’s entirely too cheap for his recent role for Florida, and he should see plenty of carries near the end of the game, as Florida is a -6 point favorite this weekend.
