Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma ($10,700)
Murray makes an elite option on most slates, and this week is no different. Through nine games, he is averaging 298.8 passing yards and 3.4 passing touchdowns per game. He has also totaled 574 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground this season. Murray is the focal point of the Oklahoma offense, and they are -17.5 point favorites in a game set at 76 points. Oklahoma State has featured a below average defense against quarterbacks this season, and Murray is averaging 39.8 fantasy points per game over his last five games.
Laviska Shenault Jr., WR, Colorado ($10,000)
Shenault has been dealing with a toe injury this season, costing him multiple games. He’s questionable once again this week, but he’s impossible to ignore if he’s starting. He has needed only six games to lead Colorado in receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. Overall, he’s averaging 10.0 receptions for 130.0 yards and 1.0 touchdown (33.5 fantasy points) per game. He gets somewhat of a tough matchup against Washington State, but this game should quickly turn into a shootout. If healthy, Shenault can be used in all leagues once again this week.
David Montgomery, RB, Iowa State ($9,100)
Montgomery has featured plenty of ups and downs this season, but he’s in a great spot this week. Overall, Montgomery is averaging 101.7 rushing yards and 0.9 rushing touchdowns on 22.3 carries per game. He does come with much receiving potential, though. Montgomery gets a great matchup against Baylor, who is allowing 190.3 rushing yards per game and 5.5 yards per carry this season. Furthermore, Baylor has allowed a total of 17 rushing touchdowns in 2018, and Montgomery is one of Iowa State’s best red zone options.
Collin Johnson, WR, Texas ($8,600)
Johnson is one of two star receivers for Texas this season. Through nine weeks, Johnson has totaled 50 receptions for 675 yards and five touchdowns. He has also scored double digit fantasy points in six of his nine games, although he has failed to score double digit fantasy points in either of his last two games. Still, Johnson gets a matchup against Texas Tech in a game that should feature plenty of scoring, and he comes with tremendous upside for a reasonable price tag.
Henry Ruggs III, WR, Alabama ($8,100)
Ruggs has performed extremely well this season, ranking second on Alabama in receptions and receiving touchdowns, while also ranking third in receiving yards. He has been a touchdown machine, scoring one or more touchdowns in seven of his last eight games. He isn’t a major part of the offense, but his touchdown potential gives him tremendous upside for a low price tag. Even in a tough matchup against Mississippi State, I expect Alabama to score plenty of touchdowns.
Lamical Perine, RB, Florida ($7,900)
Perine continues to be an underpriced running back on FanDuel. He has seen his role grow recently, as he’s averaging 102.5 total yards and 0.8 total touchdowns on 17.3 touches per game over the last four weeks. He gets an elite matchup against South Carolina, who is allowing 182.0 rushing yards per game this season. They have also allowed 17 rushing touchdowns, and Perine is one of the best per-dollar plays on the slate.
