Chris Laviano, Rutgers QB ($6800) vs. Washington State
Laviano was suspended for the 1st half of last week’s game, but started the 2nd half and responded with three touchdown passes to Leonte Carroo. He has been named the starter and could have a huge game against Wazzu. The Cougars don’t play much defense and could have major problems slowing down the Laviano-Carroo connection. Expect this Scarlet Knight to go over 300 yards passing and likely throw for a few scores in a potential shootout.


Rodney Smith, Minnesota RB ($4700) vs. Colorado State
Smith had 88 yards rushing and a score in the opening game against TCU and apparently made a strong impression on the coaching staff. They have stated that he will have a “bigger role” in the offense starting this week. He comes in at a tempting price considering his potential increase in workload. Look for Smith to post solid numbers this week and easily reach value.

Brandon Radcliff, Louisville RB ($5900) vs. Houston:
Radcliff scored twice last week against Auburn and is the bell cow back for this Louisville squad. He has multiple score potential every week and appears to be severely underpriced considering his production. Take advantage of the soft pricing on this Cardinal and make him part of a bunch of lineups in Week Two. He could easily hit the 100-yard mark and add a couple of scores against the Cougars.

Patrick Skov/Marcus Marshall, RB Georgia Tech ($4400/$4200) vs. Tulane:
We all know how productive the Georgia Tech rushing game is year in and year out and 2015 should be no exception. The two top rushing options from a fantasy perspective look to be Marshall and Skov. They combined for 256 yards rushing and five scores against Alcorn State last week and could easily match those numbers against Tulane in Week Two. The Green Wave defense is not good and will likely yield plenty of big runs to Skov and Marshall this week. The system and matchup are so good this week that playing both of these guys in the same lineup may not be a terrible idea. Expect both backs to find the end zone against Tulane on multiple occasions.



Dom Williams, Washington State WR ($5000) vs. Rutgers:

The prolific passing attack of Washington State really struggled last week in a shocking loss to Portland State. We don’t expect those struggles to continue in a potentially high scoring game with Rutgers. The pricing on Williams looks like a gift that DFS players should be more than willing to accept. This has the makings of a productive fantasy stack written all over it. Take these Cougars receivers and plug them into multiple lineups.

Amar Darboh, Michigan WR ($5100) vs. Oregon State:
One thing was incredibly apparent while watching the Michigan game last week- Darboh & Jake Butt are the only guys who Jake Rudock throws the ball to. Darboh had eight receptions for 101 yards and a score against Utah. He could do the same damage this week against Oregon State. Look for this Wolverine to continue to receive plenty of attention in the Michigan passing game and easily reach value against the Beavers.

Joe Hansley, Colorado State WR ($3900) vs. Minnesota:
Hansley had 67 yards and a score last week and could match those numbers this week against Minnesota. He has the benefit of drawing single coverage with defenses focusing on Rashard Higgins. This Ram could easily reach value and looks like a decent punt play in Week Two. Expect Hansley to carry a low ownership percentage in GPP’s.
