VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY EARLY SLATE
Driphus Jackson, Rice QB ($5600) vs. Baylor:
Jackson threw for 373 yards and three scores last week against North Texas and could approach similar numbers against Baylor in Week Four. The Owls could find themselves playing from behind and Jackson could be forced to throw the ball early and often. The Baylor defense has shown a propensity for giving up plenty of big plays and could yield plenty of them to Jackson this week. Rice could easily exceed value and be a good choice for the #2 QB on DK.
Wendell Smallwood, West Virginia RB ($4900) vs. Maryland:
Smallwood has 184 yards and three rushing touchdowns in two games and appears to have seized control of the Mountaineers backfield. He could go bananas against a Maryland defense that is anything but stout. The price tag for Smallwood is very enticing and he could easily put up numbers of an 8K RB this week. Look for this Mountaineer to go over 100 yards rushing and add a score or two against the Terrapins in Week Four.
Vic Enwere, Cal RB ($4500) vs. Washington:
Enwere had 73 yards and two rushing touchdowns last week as he filled in for injured starter, Daniel Lasco. The status of Lasco is in question this week and Enwere could be worth a look if Lasco is unable to play. Monitor this situation and if Lasco is a no go this week, plug Enwere into a few lineups at minimum price.
Jovon Durante & Shelton Gibson, WR West Virginia ($3900 & $4400) vs. Maryland:
Durante and Gibson have both scored twice in the first two game for West Virginia and appear to be the top receiving options. They could both have big games this week against a marshmallow soft Maryland pass defense that ranks 97th in the nation this season. Look for both playmakers to find the end zone once again and both appear to be outstanding punt options this week. Don’t be afraid to take a shot with one or both of these Mountaineer wide outs in Week Four.
Dennis Parks, Rice WR ($4800) vs. Baylor:
Parks had eight receptions for 163 yards and two scores last week against North Texas and appears to be the top option in the Rice passing attack. He could see a ton of targets in this game as Rice may be playing from behind and throwing often against Baylor. Look for Parks top crush value this week and provide great salary relief at minimum price. He could easily top the 100-yard mark for the second week in a row and be a truly sneaky play this week.
Isaiah Jones, ECU WR ($5000) vs. Virginia Tech:
Jones is a PPR machine and could have plenty of grabs against Virginia Tech in a potentially high scoring game. He has 24 receptions for 265 yards over the past two games against Florida and Navy. Expect Jones to see a ton of targets against the Hokies and he could be the best dollar per point player in this slate of games. This Pirate appears to be criminally underpriced this week and DFS players should look to take advantage of the pricing snafu.
VALUE PLAYS: SATURDAY LATE SLATE
Fredi Knighten, Arkansas State QB ($6900) vs. Toledo:
Knighten is a dual threat guy that has exploded on the scene in 2014 with over 4000 total yards and 35 total touchdowns. He has struggled in the early part of 2015 and is returning from a groin injury. This could be the game that kick starts his season and produces a ton of fantasy points. There could be plenty of points scored in this game and look for Knighten to be heavily involved in all the fantasy fun. Look for Knighten to rack up at least 300 total yards and add a few total touchdowns against the Rockets in Week Four.
Justin Jackson, Northwestern RB ($6700) vs. Ball State:
Jackson has gone over 100 yards rushing in two of three games this season, but has only crossed the goal line once. Expect that touchdown number to go up by a couple this week against Ball State. Jackson is a DFS stud and his price is simply too low considering his volume of carries and weak opponent. This wildcat should be a staple in both cash and GPP lineups this week on Draftkings. Don’t miss out on the gift that DK is giving players this week in Jackson.
Dare Ogunbowale, Wisconsin RB ($4700) vs. Hawaii:
With Corey Clement likely miss this game, Ogunbowale could be in line for a strong fantasy outing. He has scored in each of the last two games with Clement out of action and is averaging 17.7 FD points over that span. This game with Hawaii could be just what the doctor ordered to fix the Badgers running game, so look for Ogunbowale to see plenty of opportunities for success. A third straight game with a rushing touchdown seems likely for this Badger against an overmatched Hawaii rush defense. Look for Ogunbowale to easily exceed his price tag this week.
Drew Morgan, Arkansas WR ($4400) vs. Texas A&M:
The wide receiver position at Arkansas is a mash unit with multiple starters out with injuries. Morgan scored last week against Toledo and could see a bunch of targets this week against Texas A&M. There could be a lot of points scored in this game and Morgan could post a solid stat line against the Aggies. It would not be a big surprise to see Morgan find the end zone this week and easily reach value.
Quincy Adeboyejo, Ole Miss WR ($5300) vs. Vanderbilt:
Adeboyejo is on a scoring tear to start the season, with five receiving touchdowns in the first three games. He is a big play waiting to happen as evidenced by his 22.4 yards per reception in 2015. He could have a big night against a Vanderbilt defense that could have a tough time containing the Ole Miss passing game. Look for this Rebel to find the end zone at least once against the Commodores this week and easily reach value.
