Wow – there’s lots more value at RB than I thought there might be. You could really have lots of strategies at play for these late games. If you’re on the east coast – better drink some coffee or get some red-bulls because it might be a long night. This is one of the juiciest partial slates I’ve seen in a while + lots of these games are on national TV. Expect heavy action.

Royce Freeman – Oregon
This is an excellent matchup that if Oregon pulls ahead could be a big day for Freeman. It should be an up-tempo game so you hope Freeman can get back to the 25+ touch mark again.
Ezekiel Elliott – OSU
Not ideal matchup, but this is an elite RB.
Devontae Booker – Utah
Gets enough touches usually that it doesn’t really matter who he’s playing. This should be a grind it out game, suited for Booker.
Leonard Fournette – LSU
I think he’s a better tournament option because a low-owned Fournette who goes off could be a winning lineup. This is almost like going against an NFL defensive line, so we’ll see if Fournette can produce much value at these prices.
Peyton Barber – Auburn
Looks like he’s playing. He’s got a nice shot at hitting value against this A&M team as long as Auburn can stay in the game.
Jared Baker – Arizona
Doesn’t have to do much for him to get you decent value. This isn’t a super easy matchup, but since Nick Wilson appears to be done – Baker is the guy.
Tra Carson – Texas A&M
Another RB who has trending upside due to a QB change and the matchup is good against Auburn who struggles on defense.
Tre Madden – Ronald Jones II – USC
Both are getting more carries under the new coach. Both are viable nearly across the board due to low valuation and solid matchup.
Samaje Perine – Joe Mixon Oklahoma
Flip a coin here, I wouldn’t play both in the same lineup though. This is an above average matchup and these guys have been hot.
