By Todd DeVries & Kevin Mount,

For your convenience, we have broken the picks down by DraftKings contest game set. Best of luck this week!

Thomas Woodson, Akron QB ($6800) vs. Bowling Green
Woodson has sewn up the starting job and has score more than 31 DK points in two of the last three contests. He has proven to be adept at running the football with almost 240 rushing yards in the past four games. He could be running and throwing the ball all over the place this week against Bowling Green. The Falcons defense is not very good and Woodson could post big numbers in what could be an explosive contest. Expect over 300 total yards and a few total scores out of this Zip in Week Seven. Play Woodson and enjoy the MACtion!


Chris Hairston, ECU RB ($5200) vs. Tulsa
Hairston has scored a rushing touchdown in the last two games and is starting to heat up. He has a very juicy matchup this week, facing a porous Tulsa rush defense that is ranked 123rd in the nation and is allowing 270 yards rushing per game. Expect Hairston and the Pirates ground game to run roughshod this week and produce plenty of fantasy goodness. This Pirate could make for a very nice GPP play as he could carry a low ownership percentage. A 100 yards and a score or two seem just about right for Hairston this week.

Dare Ogunbowale, Wisconsin RB ($4900) vs. Purdue:
Ogunbowale ran for 117 yards last week versus Nebraska and more importantly received 18 carries. He could see an uptick in carries this week as Taiwan Deal may not suit up against Purdue. This Badger could have a huge game against a Purdue defense that cannot stop the run and is ranked 111th in the country. Expect Ogunbowale to top the 100-yard mark and likely find the end zone against the Boilermakers. Look for this Badger to blow his price point out of the water and make for an excellent punt play this week.

Justin Stockton, Texas Tech RB ($4700) vs. Kansas:
This talented sophomore has scored a touchdown in five of six games this season and could find the end zone a couple of times against Kansas this week. He could do plenty of damage against a pathetic Kansas defense that is allowing 257 yards rushing per game and 15 rushing touchdowns on the season. Stockton could be an excellent punt play at the RB position that could provide some much needed cap relief. Look for this Red Raider to easily reach value against the Jayhawks.


Joshua Atkinson, Tulsa WR ($5400) vs. ECU
Atkinson has gone over 100 yards receiving in four straight games and is averaging seven receptions per game over that span. He has ascended to the 1B role in the passing game with the season ending injury to Keevan Lucas and should continue to see tons of targets on a weekly basis. He has a very enticing matchup this week with a soft ECU pass defense that could allow plenty of chunk plays to Atkinson and company. Look for plenty of receptions and yards out of Atkinson this week in a potentially high scoring affair with the Pirates.

Calvin Ridley, WR Alabama ($5200) vs. Texas A&M:
The heir apparent to Amari Cooper is here and his name is Calvin Ridley. He has 260 yards receiving and two scores over the last two weeks and could duplicate those numbers this week versus Texas A&M. The Aggies could be hard pressed to contain this budding superstar. Expect this kid to have another stellar stat line and easily reach value against the Aggies in Week Seven. Ride with the Tide this week with Ridley.

Shelton Gibson, West Virginia WR ($4700) vs. Baylor:
Gibson has scored a touchdown in four out of five games this season and is the top playmaker for the West Virginia passing game. He has an attractive price this week against a weak Baylor pass defense. This game could be a track meet and Gibson could see a ton of targets as the Mountaineers try to keep pace with the record setting Bears offense. Expect Gibson to crack the 100-yard mark and find the end zone for the fifth time in six games this season. This Mountaineer could have a huge outing in this Big 12 shootout.  

Trevon Brown, ECU WR ($4600) vs. Tulsa:
Brown has snared a receiving touchdown in three consecutive games and could very easily extend that streak to four in a row versus Tulsa. While teammate Isaiah Jones gets all the fantasy love, Brown has developed into a reliable weekly DFS option. The Tulsa pass defense is ranked 113th in the country and routinely gives up huge plays to opposing wide outs. Expect Brown to find plenty of room to operate and likely find the end zone for the fourth consecutive week.



DeShone Kizer, Notre Dame QB ($6800) vs. USC:
Kizer is averaging 27.3 DK points in the last three games and could match that number against USC on Saturday night. The Trojans are a mess right now coming off a loss to Washington and the recent firing of their head coach. This seems like the perfect time for Kizer and the Irish to jump all over USC and post big numbers doing so. Look for this Golden Domer to easily hit value and be a nice GPP option on the late slate. 


Myles Gaskin, Washington RB ($5300) vs. Oregon:

This freshman may have had his coming out party last week against USC with 134 yards rushing and a score. He received double the carries of Dwayne Washington and appears to have stolen the starting job from him. He could run all over an Oregon defense that has looked horrible this season. Expect Gaskin to find the end zone again this week and easily hit value. Take a shot with this kid before his price goes up.

Mike Warren, Iowa State RB ($6500) vs. TCU:
This freshman continues to produce at a high level and still appears to be under priced. He ran for 245 yards last week versus Texas Tech and is averaging 182 yards rushing in his last three games. He could approach the 200-yard mark this week against a TCU rush defense that ranks 87th in the country and has allowed 16 rushing touchdowns. The Cyclones would be wise to feed Warren early and often to keep the high powered Horned Frogs offense parked on the sideline. Keep playing this Cyclone until his price finally gets adjusted.


Robbie Anderson, Temple WR ($4100) vs. UCF:
Anderson appears to be waking up after a quiet start to the season. He has three touchdown receptions in the last two games and is averaging 17.9 DK points per game over that span. He could add a couple more touchdown grabs this week against a UCF pass defense that ranks 95th this season and has allowed 13 receiving touchdowns. This Owl could easily exceed value this week and provide some much needed cap relief.

Tim White, Arizona State WR ($4300) vs. Utah:
White is averaging 17.3 DK points per game on the year and has developed into the leading receiver for the Sun Devils. The Utah defense has been surprisingly susceptible to the pass this year and comes in ranked 101st in the country. He could see plenty of targets as Arizona State could look to exploit the Utes secondary. Expect White hit value and be a solid punt play.
