There were some instant classic games this week and some massive performances that may have really impacted your fantasy weeks.

In this article, we’ll be discussing players who should be widely available on your CFF/C2C teams. In order to accomplish this, we’ll only look at guys who are rostered on only 30% of teams or less.

As always, it’s important to remember that you shouldn’t always just target the top performers from the week before. Context matters even more in college fantasy than it does in NFL fantasy. A guy going off for 200+ yards and three touchdowns is great. When it only comes on five touches versus an FCS opponent, you don’t want to fall for that trap. We do our best here to sift through the traps and provide you guys who will boost your teams down the stretch for your playoff runs!

Quarterbacks

Noah Fifita – Arizona – Rostership 6%

Starter Jayden de Laura will still be the starter when he returns, but Fifita may push the issue if he plays like this more. The freshmen threw for 303 yards with five TDs and a pick as the Wildcats gave the Trojans all they could handle. 

Throwing to Jacob Cowing and Tet McMillan can be helpful for the development of a young passer. Fifita looked calm and composed despite being under immense pressure and made a few impressive throws. If you’ve got him in dynasty, I would be encouraged. 

Next week, they face Washington State in another potential shootout, and while it’s always risky to plug a freshman in your lineup, it’s tempting if Fifita gets the nod. If de Laura doesn’t return after the bye, Oregon State could be another pointsfest. 

Cooper Legas – Utah State – 6%

Legas is back in as the starter, and I can’t foresee him relinquishing the job. After two strong starts, he needs to be back on our college rosters. Legas torched Colorado State for 387 yards and four scores, also throwing a pair of INTs. He’s not a runner and won’t give you much there. But he’s going to stretch the field when he’s starting.

Next up is Fresno State; not a great matchup, but he can be started if you need a start and have no other options. After that, Legas has five matchups versus defenses outside of the top 90. He’s a quarterback I liked a lot going into the season, but it’s been a bit up and down thus far. I think the downs are mostly past, and I like Legas a lot for the rest of the season. 

Cam Fancher – Marshall – 3%

The Thundering Herd has been a surprise this season, and the QB at the helm is sophomore Fancher. Marshall can run the ball and are scoring at will, with a juicy schedule coming up. Fancher was called upon more versus NC State, and he responded with 315 yards and two TDs, adding two more on the ground. And it was against arguably the best defense they will play this year. 

The hesitation I have with Fancher is Marshall may not need him to do much against the rest of the schedule. They may be in shootouts, but they will lean on Rasheen Ali first. I still like Fancher to have a safe floor, and he’s displayed that he can be a danger as a runner. 

Honorable Mentions

EJ Warner – Temple – 27%

  • He finally reminded us of the insane numbers he is capable of, throwing for 472 yards and five TDs versus UTSA. 

MJ Morris – NC State – 14%

  • He doesn’t have great matchups coming up, but I love his potential, and Morris still had four TDs and 265 yards, albeit with three INTs versus Marshall in his first game as a starter this season. 

Running Backs

Devon Booth – Utah State – 1%

It’s tough sledding on the waiver wire with running backs this week, so I’m not super confident about each of these guys. Booth has rushed for over 100 yards twice in his last three games, and the one he didn’t, he was dealing with an injury. He’s not going to give you much as a pass-catcher but is an efficient runner.

With Legas at quarterback, the Aggies are a better offense and will be in better game scripts. If Booth continues to get carries, he’s got the potential to get you 20+ points in your fantasy matchups. As mentioned about Legas, Utah State has a tough matchup coming up but then an easy schedule after that. 

Bhayshul Tuten – Virginia Tech – 19%

Tuten is another not-flashy player but can give you a player with a safe floor in a pinch. He was bottled up against Florida State, and the Hokies were forced to play catch up. Tuten still had four receptions and has 16 on the season. He rushed for 109 yards versus Pitt and 88 versus Marshall the week before. 

Wake Forest is up next, and then a bye week, but after that, the Hokies have a nice schedule for Tuten to be fantasy-relevant. I can’t see him getting you 30 points a week, but his solid workload and ability to catch passes will likely keep him at 15+ points. 

Jonah Coleman – Arizona – 12%

If Michael Wiley misses time, Coleman becomes a priority pickup. He was the man against USC and responded with 143 yards and four receptions, totaling 180 yards from scrimmage.

Even with Wiley, Coleman’s usage has gone up every week, and he’s got over 550 total yards through six games. He’s got a decent matchup next week, Washington State, and I expect Wiley to be back after the bye in Week 8, if not sooner. Coleman could still be called upon through bye weeks if needed. 

Wide Receivers

Kevin Concepcion – NC State – 17%

I feel like this should be a foregone conclusion, but Concepcion needs to be rostered in every league. Morris made the offense more explosive, and he targeted Concepcion 14 times this week. He pulled in eight of those for 102 yards and a pair of TDs. 

I’m not the least bit worried about the matchups. Concepcion will get his. He’s capable of 100 yards every week and is an explosive, young receiver. There may be down weeks, but there are going to be more big weeks. And Concepcion has the potential for WR1 weeks. 

Elijah Metcalf – Middle Tennessee – 2%

I’ve seen enough to know I want to get Metcalf on my roster and get him in my lineup if I need help through tough weeks. I know, five targets and four catches for 115 yards and a pair of scores feels like the trap described in the intro. But Metcalf had weeks of 10 and 14 targets before that. The 14 targets turned into 11 receptions for 95 yards.

Quarterback Nicholas Vattiato is going to throw the ball, and the schedule is weak. Metcalf is another player capable of big ol’ league-winning types of weeks if things fall right. Volume won’t be a problem, and Metcalf is finally getting the attention he needs to succeed. 

Joey Hobert – Texas State – 24%

Over the last three weeks, Hobert has had nine or more targets, over 90 yards, and a touchdown every week. Why is he only 24% owned?

I know we’ve mentioned him before, and Hobert is still available in over 75% of leagues. He’s the type of player you can throw in your lineup and count on 20 points. Plus, the schedule is nice, with quarterback TJ Finley getting better every week, it seems. This is your last warning. Pick up Joey Hobert. 

Honorable Mentions

Eric McAlister – Boise State – 26%

  • He’s getting consistent targets and has eclipsed 90 yards each of the last four weeks, with 170 yards in Week 6. Plus, he’s got some strong matchups coming up. 

Chrishon McCray – Kent State – 1%

  • The not-so-high-flying Golden Flashes aren’t the most explosive offense, but McCray has 24 targets, 16 grabs, 198 yards, and a pair of scores over the last two weeks. Keep an eye out on this one. 

Tight Ends

David Martin-Robinson – Temple – 21%

If Warner keeps chucking the ball, Martin-Robinson is a player to roster. He had ten targets this week and seven targets the previous week. If you started him last week, you were rewarded with 112 yards and two scores on eight catches. 

It’s tough to project that Warner is back to his gun-slinging ways. He could regress, and if he does, Martin-Robinson is not worth a roster spot. As long as the Temple offense hums, though, Martin-Robinson will be a solid TE start.
