Eve QB Plays for Week 6

Patrick Mahomes

Fan Picks Salary : $9,500

We are paying up at the QB slot for this slate, and hoping others avoid the matchup with K State. The Wildcats are currently 12th nationally in run defense and 27th in pass defense, but Texas Tech and Mahomes lit them up last year. I don’t think he’s in line for a 50 point performance, but should finish in the 35-40 point range which is good enough given the QB’s and matchups in this slate.

Jake Browning

Fan Picks Salary : $5,900

A year after giving up 300 passing yards per game, Oregon is currently allowing 275 yards per game and have given up 42 PPG over their last three. They certainly aren’t going to improve dramatically against Browning, who is averaging 24 fantasy points per game including a 20+ point performance in blowout against Stanford.

Eve RB Plays for Week 6

Cade Carney

Fan Picks Salary : $5,100

Cade Carney has been back practicing and is expected to start Saturday, but make sure you verify this prior to kickoff. Syracuse has the 115th ranked rush defense in the nation, allowing 275 rushing YPG. He has been out for three weeks, but had 17/108/3 against Duke in week 2, the combination of workload, ability, and matchup make Carney the best RB play for this slate.

Nick Chubb

Fan Picks Salary : $3,900

Nick Chubb has been a full participant at practice this week, and will get the start on Saturday against South Carolina. SC’s pass and scoring defense has been tough this season, but they have given up big time yardage (202 ypg) to opposing running backs. Chubb is a steal at $3,900 and is the best value for the eve slate.

Eve WR Plays for Week 6

Amba Etta-Tawo

Fan Picks Salary : $7,600

We prefer Etta-Tawo to Jonathan Giles for a few reasons… The first is the matchup. Wake Forest is currently the 118th ranked pass defense in the nation, allowing 322 passing yards per game. The second is his role in the Syracuse passing attack. Eric Dungey isn’t putting up yards and points without a big game from Etta-Tawo. Mahomes can target Giles, or if K State takes him away, he can throw to any number of the nearly double-digit weapons TT has on offense.

John Ross

Fan Picks Salary : $5,000

John Ross is an easy volume play here. Washington has struggled against spread offenses, so Oregon will hit some big plays and score some points here. This means Washington will have even more meaningful possessions, more pass attempts for Browning, and more big play opportunities for Ross, one of the most explosive players in college football.

Jehu Chesson

Fan Picks Salary : $3,400

For those of you that have been burned by Chesson already this season (I know I have been)… I promise it will eventually be worth it. He is beating defenses deep, Speight is just missing him and for some reason isn’t missing Darboh. Look for Harbaugh to take advantage of an extremely favorable matchup with Rutgers to get his senior receiver, a guy that was once considered the top NFL prospect receiver in the 2017 class, rolling with a couple of big plays.

Eve TE Plays for Week 6

Jake Butt

Fan Picks Salary : $4,000

We are going with two proven commodities as tight end this week. Michigan has the highest team total for this slate, and I think you can expect Speight to throw for 250 yards and 3 or 4 scores. Butt should be good for one of those touchdowns.

Late Slate QB Plays for Week 6

Davis Webb

Fan Picks Salary : $7,600

After doing it against Utah, it was pretty safe to consider the Webb/Hansen stack a lock in a matchup with Oregon State. The Beavers just gave up 321 yards and 3 touchdowns to Steven Montez, who I have now watched play three times and is nowhere near what his numbers suggest he is. Webb is a lock for 400/4 here.

Josh Rosen

Fan Picks Salary : $4,600

We flirted with the idea of rolling Kahlil Tate out here, but Rosen is so underpriced that he’s just $600 more than a true freshman making his first start. As always, Arizona State is the worst statistical power 5 defense in the country. They are currently allowing over 400 passing YPG on average. Rosen should go bananas here, and should be 100% owned.

Late Slate RB Plays for Week 6

Christian McCaffrey

Fan Picks Salary : $6,300

It doesn’t matter how you construct your roster, you will have money left over, so McCaffrey should also be 100% owned in this slate. McCaffrey has been a lock at home throughout his career, and is obviously a particularly strong start against the Cougars who gave up 140 yards and 3 touchdowns on just 19 carries to Royce Freeman last week.

DeMario Richard

Fan Picks Salary : $3,900

I think Richard is in line for a bounce-back week against UCLA. Arizona State should want to keep their defense off the field, and their bruising starting RB is clearly their best bet to do so. Priced at just $3,900, if he gets to 20 carries this week, he should be able to get to 20 points against the Bruins.

Late Slate WR Plays for Week 6

Chad Hansen

Fan Picks Salary : $7,900

Again, Hansen and Davis have been unstoppable and the Beavers defense is really bad.

Tim Patrick

Fan Picks Salary : $5,300

Patrick is a boom or bust, big play receiver, and unfortunately last week was a bust in a great matchup. He has another solid matchup this week, with a game against Arizona who’s defense has run hot or cold all season and will have it’s hands full with the Utah running game. We expect Patrick to break at least one big one over the top of the Wildcats defense.

Kenneth Walker

Fan Picks Salary : $3,300

Walker’s price is just silly… He’s the most targeted receiver on a team with an NFL quarterback, facing the worst pass defense in the country. I think he would be a solid start if priced at $6,000, so at $3,300 he becomes a lock.

Late Slate TE Plays for Week 6

Dalton Schultz

Fan Picks Salary : $2,600

The tight end spot is clearly going to be the toughest to pick here. Iese has looked good, Mora loves using his tight ends, but he has been so inconsistent. Shultz is the best player, but Stanford has struggled to throw the ball all year. As of now, we are going with the better player at home in a plus matchup, but may end up starting Iese who has a higher ceiling in what could be a shootout.
