Here are the WR’s I have my eye on this week.
WR – Brandin Cooks – Oregon State
Great matchup against a fairly soft defense. Cooks should be the most expensive WR on just about every DFS this week. The only downside is you’ll need to save money on the other players you start – as he should have another big day this week.
WR – Paul Richardson – Colorado
Last week against Oregon he had 5 catches for 134. This week he faces off Arizona State and his team should be behind in this game from the opening snap … meaning it should be another week for Richardson to get plenty of looks.
WR – Mike Evans – Texas A&M
This weeks game against Ole Miss has one of the highest O/U on the Vegas board, and it’s supposed to be fairly close. Evans is an excellent play again this week.
WR – Antwan Goodley – Baylor
Has over 120 yards and at least 1 TD in the last 3 games. Excellent matchup & Vegas has this one as one of the highest scoring matchups of the week. If he’s a mid-priced option on your DFS, get him in.
WR – Sammy Watkins – Clemson
Clemson is a huge favorite this week against Boston College, so Sammy will need to get busy pretty quick in this game … but his 2 quarters might be better than most guys 4 quarters. Last week Watkins had 126 yards (91 came on one play) and 1 TD against Syracuse in a blowout win.
WR – Allen Robinson – Penn State
HUGE game last week where he caught 12 catches and had 2 TDs against a pretty poor defense. This week he goes against Michigan, and still should get his opportunities, but probably not as good as last week. Some DFS have him as a mid-priced option, and I think you’re getting good value when that is the case.
WR – Deontay Greenberry – Houston
This guy has been producing each week. This week he goes against a decent Memphis team. If Greenberry is in the top 5 of salary on your DFS, I don’t think he’s worth it this week, but if you can get him outside the top 10, I think you might be getting solid value. The backup QB might be in again this week, so double check on that if that worries you too.
WR – Jamison Crowder – Duke
Has 7 catches, 140+ yards and 1 TD in each of the last 2 games. He goes against Navy, which isn’t a pushover (it’s the US Navy afterall) … but they know how to load guns better than stop the pass. Solid play this week.
WR – Tyler Boyd – Pittsburgh
Depending on what site you play on, Boyd is either near the top, or he’s more of a mid-priced option. He’s got a difficult matchup this week against Virginia Tech, who has a solid defense. I’d probably avoid him this week, but this freshman can play.
WR – Tevin Reese – Baylor
Has a touchdown catch in every game he has played this year. A big play type WR, that probably won’t get you more than 6 catches … but should get you close to 100 yards if he does. I LOVE this matchup because Vegas has this on super high O/U and Baylor is “only” a 17 point favorite … many of the teams they’ve played it’s been much higher.
WR – Gabe Marks – Washington State
Last week against Cal, I thought Marks would have a better day – he only had 4 catches for 55 yards, and the week before against Stanford he had 6 for 75 and a TD. His stock might be slipping a bit, but has a good matchup this week again … but I thought that about him last week.
WR – Chris Harper – Cal
This guy WENT OFF last week, and Cal got beat pretty bad, so he can have a good week even when Cal is getting squashed. This week they are going to get squashed again when they play UCLA, who have a fairly good defense. I think Cal will be throwing a ton in this game, but I doubt Harper will duplicate his 231 yard 14 catches from a week prior.
WR – Jaelen Strong – Arizona State
One of the most consistent WR’s going in the NCAA right now. He’s got 100+ yards in the last 3 week – and the competition has been Stanford, USC and Notre Dame. This week he gets a pop-warner matchup against Colorado. The downside is that his team is a 25 point favorite so his upside this week will have to come in the first 3 quarters.
WR – Jared Abbrederis – Wisconsin
Broke out and had over 200 yards receiving for the first time in his college career last week. Before that he’s been a steady target. This week he goes against Northwestern, which has had trouble at times stopping teams this year. I only like Jared if he’s a cheaper option for you because I think his upside is limited.
