CFB Week 5 Late
Late slate write-up will be more like a cheat sheet with minimal notes relative to the early slate. We will follow the same format as previous weeks where we have 1 cash, 2 GPP for FanDuel and DraftKings and 1 total lineup for Fantasy Aces for the late slate.
- Dak Prescott
- Kyle Allen
- Brett Rypien (only available on DK and FA)
- Jerrard Randall
- Josh Dobbs
- DeShone Kizer
- Jeff Lockie
Dak Prescott and Kyle Allen are the clear cut top plays at QB for the late slate and they are playing against each other. Texas A&M plays at a much quicker pace than Mississippi does so we are projecting an increase in volume for Prescott this week as a result of the A&M pace. Prescott is another one of the dual threat QB’s that provides a nice floor with the rushing yards he is able to rack up over the course of the game.
Brett Rypien is playing QB for Boise State and they have one of the highest implied team totals of the late slate. Rypien is a great value on DraftKings and Fantasy Aces.
Jerrard Randall – Randall has a very attractive price tag but a tough matchup on paper. One of the things that makes CFB so fun is how every slate calls for a little different game theory as far as where to spend the cap. CFB is unique in that literally every single positon is puntable if the right teams are in the slate. Randall is talented enought that punting QB isn’t a horrible idea on this slate. Some of you will probably think I’m crazy for saying that after watching our early QB’s put up 40 point games.
- Leonard Fournette
- Royce Freeman
- Demario Richard
- Christian McCaffery
- C.J. Prossise
- Donnel Pumphrey – DK Only
- Jordan Parker – DK Only
Leonard Fournette – If you’ve been with us since week 1 you know we are very high on Fournette as we have been using him every week this year and calling our shot with the Hiesman prediction since before week 1. Fournette is easily the top play in the late slate and he is someone you really don’t want to mess around with fading at this point. 200 yard games with multiple touchdowns are pretty much the norm with Fournette.
Royce Freeman – Freeman projected almost identical with Fournette early in the week for us. Fournette ultimately won out as the top play but I like Freeman a lot with Lockie in at QB for the Ducks. Paying up for both of these studs could be a fine strategy with this slate as it could give you a solid 50-70 point floor from 2 positions.
Jordan Parker – Parker is basically a lock for cash games on DraftKings (only site he is available on) at just $4,200.
Donnel Pumphrey has huge upside in tournaments tonight (DK only) if you want to fade Fournette
- Christian Kirk
- William Fuller
- Drew Morgan
- Nelson Spruce
- Bralon Addison
- Michael Rector
- Mikah Holder (DK Only)
Christian Kirk – Kirk has quickly become the #1 option for Kyle Allen and the Aggies. The price point is fairly reachable for one of the better cash game options on FanDuel at WR. Kirk should be a focus in all formats if you have the cap space after selecting one or both of the top running backs.
Drew Morgan – Morgan is going to benefit greatly from two key injuries in front of him on the depth chart as far as the Arkansas passing game goes. Morgan is in play on all sites but he has the most attractive price on Fantasy Aces.
Bralon Addison – Addison has a fair price tag and he is now the #1 option in the Ducks passing game with Marshall on the shelf with an injury. Addison is a guy who see’s a lot of red zone targets even with a healthy team so he should be good to go tonight against a weak Colorado pass defense.
- Gus Walley
- Hunter Henry
- Austin Hooper
- Jake Butt
- Kody Kohl
Gus Walley is your best option if you’re looking to punt the tight end position like we often do on these slates with clear cut studs we need to get in. If you’re playing Dak Prescott at QB there is no reason to look to anyone other than Gus Walley at tight end.
