Interesting slate of games with only 1 game with a 60+ point o/u total. There’s basically 3 ‘chalk’ QBs, but I believe Lynch has the best matchup. The 2 QB format might prove difficult on DK for the late slate, because fading the top QBs might be difficult and pairing them together will deplete your budget. We’ll see, but looks like an interesting slate of games.
Miami @ Duke (-10.5) 51 o/u
Michigan (-11.5) @ Minnesota 37.6 o/u
Oregon State @ Utah (-26.5) 53 o/u
Tulane @ Memphis (-30.5) 62.5 o/u
Texas (-3.5) @ Iowa State 50.5 o/u
Vanderbilt @ Houson (-10) 49 o/u
Tennessee (-9.5) @ Kentucky 58.5 o/u
Notre Dame (-10.5) @ Temple 52 o/u
Air Force (-5.5) @ Hawaii 49.5 o/u
Stanford (-10) @ Washington State 59.5 o/u
Arizona @ Washington (-4.5) 56 o/u
Paxton Lynch – Memphis
Interesting that 3 QBs are $10k on FD, but Lynch is by far & away the #1 QB on DK. This is a good matchup against Tulane who’s given up 14 TDs and 236 yards per game.
Luke Falk – Washington State
Hard to love this matchup, so it should keep Falk’s usage rates down a bit. However, Stanford’s pass defense isn’t as strong as it has been in the past. Has at least 40 passing attempts in every game this season. I think he has 3 TD upside, so more of a cash game pick than anything.
Thomas Sirk – Duke
Risky because he has a bust ability … but that’s usually been against a high quality team. People hate on Miami, but their defense isn’t terrible, so the “feast on Miami” line in his bio this week might be a stretch. That being said, I think Sirk has a good chance at getting 15+ carries, which is where his upside will be this week.
Greg Ward Jr. – Houston
I think he’s only playable on DK because of the 100 yard bonus & such. This is a less than ideal matchup and Vegas doesn’t see a high scoring game.
Joshua Dobbs – Tennessee
The ultimate boom or bust QB this season. Given the limited number of QBs to pick from and the fact the matchup is overall fairly positive … Dobbs can be a gamblers QB this week.
Jerrard Randall – Arizona
I think you could play him in the 2 QB format on DK in tournaments. He has 30+ point upside which would be excellent at this price. Risky because Anu Solomon might start and could get rolling & put a cooler on Randall.
