Saturday’s matchups has plenty of WRs to pick from. You could literally make 1,000’s of combinations. I would focus on the matchups you think will go well – and obviously stack up some WRs with your QBs if it makes sense. Most matches are going to be won or lost based on WR play since there are so many different combinations you can roll with. So just make sure you take a little extra time getting your WR combo’s just right. This slate is going to be tricky, but with the right amount of luck, it could pay off big-time.

DEEBO SAMUEL (SC) $8,000
Looks like he’s healthy and back. He’s a mega-high upside player.
DAVID SILLS V (WV) $10,000
Has the best matchup and is a high ceiling player.
A.J. BROWN (OLEM) $10,800
If you can get his salary to work for you, this is a high ceiling type WR and has a great matchup against a weak Texas Tech defense. Teammates D.K. Metcalf $6,200, Damarkus Lodge $5,900 I think are viable due to much lower salary. Dawson Knox $3,900 is listed as the starting TE and could get some looks.
There’s not a lot of experience at Texas Tech to really jump all over the obvious plays, so there’s some risk the new guys don’t perform.
T.J. VASHER $9,400 – the most experienced player in the group.
Ja’Deion High $4,100 & Zach Austin $3,000 are listed at the starting slot WR, but have no really big games to prove they are solid.
Missouri WR’s Emanuel Hall $8,400, Johnathan Johnson $7,000, Nate Brown $4,400 all three are listed as starters on a team with mostly freshman behind them. ALBERT OKWUEGBUNAM $6,600 is an elite level TE. Got to think they’ll get the bulk of the targets until the game gets out of hand.
VIC WHARTON III (CAL) $5,800
Has got a great matchup, will be at home and his price is pretty nice too.
KANAWAI NOA (CAL) $5,400
Another Cal WR who can be very productive and is a solid price.
Washington State – They face off against Wyoming, which if you’ve seen has one of the better pass defenses in the country. WSU does like to throw it 40+ times and Wyoming tends to give up the dink/dunk stuff. I honestly don’t think WSU’s WR’s upside is really high (due to lack of TDs likely), so I’ll avoid them in GPPs, but for cash games, especially towards the min-price side, I think there’s some value here. Here’s the depth chart if you want to take a look.
DAVONTAVEAN (TAY) MARTIN $6,400 – Listed as the starting X WR
EASOP WINSTON JR $3,000 – If you need a min priced WR, he’s listed as the starting Z WR. DEZMON PATMON $6,300 and Calvin Jackson $3,000 are listed as co-backup.
RENARD BELL $5,200 or Travell Harris $3,000 listed at the H position.
GARY JENNINGS JR (WV) $7,600
Not a huge fan of the matchup, but that’s overlooked considering his price.
Penn State WR’s tend to be somewhat low ceiling outside JUWAN JOHNSON (PENN) $7,500 – who was listed at Probable on Draftkings, didn’t see much, so you’ll just want to double check. DeAndre Thompkins $5,700 and KJ Hamler $3,900 are viable since they are cheap and you could stack them with the Penn State QB.
ANTHONY RATLIFF-Williams (UNC) $6,700
Not a bad price for a WR going against a weaker Cal defense.
