Ian Book, QB, Notre Dame ($9,700)
Book didn’t play last week because of an injury, but he has practiced enough to be named the starter this week. He has performed well through basically six games, throwing for 1,824 yards and 15 touchdowns. He has also added 218 yards and four touchdowns on the ground this season. He isn’t quite priced like it, but Book has scored 25+ fantasy points in four of his six games, including a ceiling north of 40 fantasy points. He gets an elite matchup against Syracuse in a game that is set at 62.5 points, as well. Book is a bit cheaper than the elite options, but he has as much upside as any quarterback on this slate.
Tylan Wallace, WR, Oklahoma State ($10,100)
Wallace has been enjoying an elite breakout season, leading Oklahoma State in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdowns. On the season, he’s averaging 6.8 receptions for 128.2 yards and 0.9 touchdowns per game. He has also taken his game to the next level recently, scoring 39, 29.76, and 39.2 fantasy points in his last three games. He has recorded at least eight receptions for 120 yards and two touchdowns in each of those games. He gets a great matchup against West Virginia, who has struggled against the pass at times this season. This game is set at 71 points, and Wallace is the biggest part of the OKST offense.
Gary Jennings Jr., WR, West Virginia ($9,000)
As mentioned above, this game features a 71 point total. I’ll be looking to get a piece of both offenses, specifically players that find the end zone. That is Jennings, who is a bit cheaper than fellow receiver, David Sills V. Overall, Jennings ranks second on West Virginia in receptions and touchdowns, while also ranking third in receiving yards. He has caught four touchdowns over the last three weeks, and he has scored double-digit touchdowns in three games this season. Jennings is somewhat of a cheaper way to get a piece of West Virginia’s offense.
Kennedy Brooks, RB, Oklahoma ($8,300)
Brooks is the backup running back in Oklahoma, but he’s in a great position this week. He’s averaging 11.2 rushing yards per game on the season, and he has also totaled nine rushing touchdowns on only 57 carries. Last week, he rank for 165 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries. He’ll likely see double-digit carries again this week, as Oklahoma is a -36.5 point favorite in a game set at 69 points. Brooks doesn’t need many carries to score fantasy points, and if he is gifted 10+ carries, he should have no problems hitting value in this matchup.
Anthony McFarland, RB, Maryland ($6,700)
McFarland is in an interesting situation. He saw 29 carries last week, but Ty Johnson was out and Javon Leake was injured in that game. Johnson wasn’t listed on the depth chart, while Leake is expected to return to action this week. Still, McFarland should get the majority share of carries once again this week. Ohio State hasn’t featured an elite run defense this season, and McFarland is entirely too cheap for a player that could see 20+ carries. This game is expected to stay at least somewhat close, as Ohio State is a -16.5 point favorite. McFarland is a risky option, but there aren’t many safe options for this low of a price tag.
Sean Riley, WR, Syracuse ($8,300)
This game features one of the highest totals on the slate, and Riley is a cheap way to get a part of it. He has struggled to find the end zone this season, but he leads Syracuse with 54 receptions. He has also recorded seven or more receptions in three of his last for games. While his lack of touchdowns is a concern, he’ll have plenty of opportunities, as Syracuse generally gets him the ball with high percentage looks. He’s a great option for a low price tag on this slate today.
