VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY EARLY SLATE
Skyler Howard, West Virginia QB ($6500) vs. Oklahoma:
Howard threw four touchdown passes last week against Maryland and is averaging 27.8 DK points this season. He seems to be getting better by the week and could post a big stat line against a soft Sooners defense. Expect plenty of fantasy fireworks in this contest and Howard could be a huge part of all the fun. Expect Howard to easily go over 300 yards passing and add a few touchdown tosses in this potentially high scoring game. This Mountaineer could easily put up numbers of a 10K QB this week.
Matt Dayes, NC State RB ($5300) vs. Louisville:
Dayes has almost 600 total yards and nine rushing touchdowns in the first four games of 2015 and appears to be absurdly underpriced this week against Louisville. Dayes had been sharing the rock with Shadrack Thornton, who has now been dismissed from the team. The Louisville defense has really struggled this season and it won’t get any easier against a guy like Dayes. He looks like an awesome option in Week Five.
DeAndre Washington, Texas Tech RB ($5500) vs. Baylor:
Washington ran for 188 yards and four touchdowns last week against TCU. He could have another monster outing against a bad Baylor defense that struggles to stop opposing offenses. Expect a ton of points to be scored in this contest and Washington could run wild and make for a great play this week. He appears to be considerably underpriced with the match up and opponent. Ride this Red Raider often this week.
Joshua Atkinson, Tulsa WR ($4400) vs. Houston:
Atkinson has gone over 100 yard receiving and a score in the last two games and could make it three in a row versus Houston. He goes largely unnoticed as DFS players focus on Keevan Lucas and Keyarris Garrett. This contest has a ridiculous over/under of 81.5 points and his price is very juicy with all the yards and points expected to be produced. Look for Atkinson to carry a low ownership percentage in GPP’s this week and likely pay big dividends for DFS players savvy enough to roster him.
Jaylen Samuels, NC State WR ($4400) vs. Louisville:
Samuels is listed as a TE, but is used all over the field including in the backfield. He has a whopping eight total touchdowns in the first four games for the Wolfpack and could add a couple more against Louisville. The Cardinals defense is not as strong as it usually is and could allow Samuels to post another big stat line. Look for this talented sophomore to be a great punt play that could easily hit double value this week.
Shelton Gibson, WR West Virginia ($4600) vs. Oklahoma:
Gibson is averaging 25 DK points per game this season and has scored in all three games. He could have a big afternoon against a Sooners defense that yielded 427 yards passing and four scores in their last game. Look for Gibson to find the end zone once again and see a ton of targets in what could be a very high scoring affair. Gibson is a rising star and could make a statement this week on the national scene. He appears to be a terrific point per dollar play this week.
VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY LATE SLATE
Brett Rypien, Boise State QB ($6600) vs. Hawaii:
Rypien got his first start last week against Virginia and responded nicely with 321 yards passing and three touchdown tosses. He has a solid receiving corps at his disposal and could find more fantasy success this week against Hawaii. Look for Rypien to have an encore performance and light up Hawaii. Another 300-yard effort could be in store for this freshman.
Ralph Webb, Vanderbilt RB ($6000) vs. MTSU:
Webb is the lead back for Vanderbilt and has scored four total touchdowns in the last two games and appears to be getting in a nice groove. He could be called upon often against Middle Tennessee State this week and could easily top the 100-yard mark. Expect Webb to find pay dirt again this week and easily reach value. Webb could be an excellent value play this week against the Blue Raiders.
Derrius Guice, LSU RB ($4000) vs. Eastern Michigan:
We all know that LSU is the Lenny Fournette show this year, but this could be the game that this talented freshman shows out. He had the 2nd most carries last week against Syracuse and could see even more this week in a potential blowout game with Eastern Michigan. The Eagles have the worst rush defense in all of college football and are allowing an astronomical 373 yards per game. Guice could easily find his way into the end zone once or twice in Week Five. This Tiger could easily reach value on only a handful of carries.
Drew Morgan, Arkansas WR ($4700) vs. Tennessee:
The wide receiver position at Arkansas is a mash unit with multiple starters out with injuries. Morgan had 155 yards receiving and a score against Texas A&M last week and could have another big outing versus Tennessee. The Volunteers pass defense is ranked 88th in the country and could struggle this week to contain Morgan. It would not be a big surprise to see Morgan find the end zone this week and easily reach value. Look for Morgan to be an excellent under the radar play this week.
Jamire Jordan, Fresno State WR ($4200) vs. San Diego State:
Jordan has scored three total touchdowns the last two games and is averaging 15.2 DK points per game this season. He has a juicy matchup against an Aztec pass defense that is ranked 94th in the nation this year. While the QB situation for Fresno is not great, Jordan still holds value this week at this price and could be a solid punt play. Take a shot with this Bulldog in what could be a typical wild game in the MWC.
