McKenzie Milton, QB, UCF ($10,200)
Milton failed us last week, but I’m back on him here. He’s surprisingly cheap, scoring 38+ fantasy points in three of his five games this season. He has also flashed unmatched upside with 50 fantasy points against FAU. He gets a matchup against Memphis in a game set at 77.5 points. UCF is also only a -4.5 point favorite, meaning Milton should play all four quarters. He’s a massive part of this offense, and he makes a safe option that comes with tremendous upside on this slate, as well.
Darrell Henderson, RB, Memphis ($10,100)
Henderson has likely been the best running back in the NCAA this season, totaling 974 yards and 12 touchdowns through only five games. Most impressively, he has done it on only 78 touches. He gets a matchup against UCF, who is allowing 181.8 rushing yards per game this season. They are also allowing their opponents to run for over 4.0 yards per carry. Henderson could see extra touches in this game, as Memphis looks to end the UCF winning streak. He isn’t going to come cheap, but Henderson has scored 35+ fantasy points in four of his five games this season.
Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor ($8,900)
Mims regained full health only two weeks ago, and he has posted elite numbers since. In his last two games, he has totaled 19 receptions for 204 yards and two touchdowns. Texas is a team that has found success against running backs, but has struggled to contain wide receivers. That plays into Baylor’s offensive strengths, and Mims should be in line for another sizeable workload this weekend. He isn’t the star of the team, but he comes with a more reasonable price tag than Jalen Hurd.
Tyler Johnson, WR, Minnesota ($8,700)
This game is likely to be a blowout, meaning Minnesota could be throwing early and often. They have had their struggles this season, but Zack Annexstad is coming off of his best game this season. Johnson is his top target, leading the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. Johnson comes with tremendous touchdown potential, which is what we’re attacking for his price tag. Through five games, he has multiple touchdowns in two of them. While he does come with terrible risk, he comes with upside that is hard to find around his price tag, as well.
Austin Mack, WR, Ohio State ($6,600)
This is an interesting situation. Mack comes with an extremely cheap price tag, but he ranks third on Ohio State in receptions and receiving yards. He has struggled to find the end zone, but that could change on any given week. He has three receptions in every game this season, and this game should feature plenty of scoring. It’s a concern that Ohio State could blow out Minnesota early, but Mack doesn’t need many fantasy points to his value at hit current price tag.
Keaontay Ingram, RB, Texas ($7,800)
I’m attacking a matchup rather than a player with this pick. Ingram has taken over as the lead back in Texas, and he gets an elite matchup against Baylor. Baylor is allowing 193.2 rushing yards per game this season, while also allowing slightly more than 6.0 yards per carry. Ingram should see double digit touches once again this week, and this game could feature more scoring than expected. Ingram does come with some risk, as he splits snaps with Tre Watson, but it’s difficult to avoid this matchup.
