There’s twice the number of games this Friday compared to last week, which means double the number of options for the Friday night DFS slate on Draft Kings! Some of these matchups make for a good game, so looking to put in a few lineups to get Week 4 in the right direction.
Middle Tenn St. @ Charlotte (-3) (O/U 56)
I’m not a fan of this game as I’m looking to load up on players from the other matchups.
Wake Forest @ Virginia (-4) (O/U 69)
This is the first test away from Winston-Salem for the Deacons, let’s see if they’re the real deal. Sitting at 3-0 to start the season, Wake Forest is in the hunt in the wide open ACC. This should be quite the game with a total of 69 points. QB Sam Hartman ($7700) will have a tough task keeping up with the Virginia offense. The Cavaliers are ranked #5 in the country in total yardage.
Hartman’s Deacons have the weapons to do it. I’m grabbing WR, A.T. Perry ($6100) over WR Jaquarii Roberson ($7000) as the less expensive receiver. I think he’ll produce value in that spot. RB Christian Beal-Smith ($5300) will be sure to feast on a Virginia defense who is allowing 200 rushing yards per game this season…yikes!
Looking at the stats, it may seem that QB Brennan Armstrong ($8700) is playing 7-on-7, but I can assure you he is not. Virginia is going to throw the ball around as they are ranked #2 in the country in the air, averaging 438 passing yards per game. You can go ahead and take your pick at receiver as they will all be putting up excellent fantasy points. WR Dontayvion Wicks ($7100) is my pick out of all three receivers due to his price and production.
QB Sam Hartman ($7700) – Wake Forest
WR A.T. Perry ($6100) – Wake Forest
WR Jaquarii Roberson ($7000) – Wake Forest
RB Christian Beal-Smith ($5300) – Wake Forest
QB Brennan Armstrong ($8700 – Virginia
WR Dontayvion Wicks ($7100) – Virginia
Liberty @ Syracuse (-6) (O/U 52.5)
QB Malik Willis ($8500) is making his case for why he should get invited to the Heisman ceremony in New York. Going up against stout defense in Syracuse, I’m leaning on Willis to get fantasy points in the air and on the ground. Make sure to roster him in your lineups.
The best thing for Syracuse to do in this game will be to hand the ball off and block for RB Sean Tucker ($6400). Not being able to trust either quarterback for this team has me hesitant to roster any other player.
QB Malik Willis ($8500) – Liberty
RB Sean Tucker ($6400) – Syracuse
UNLV @ Fresno State (-30) (O/U 58.5)
Fresno State being favored by 30 points let’s you know everything you need to about UNLV. This game will be out of reach by halftime led by QB Jake Haener ($7900), who has thrown for four TDs in his last two games. I’m going with the stack in this one with WR Jalen Cropper ($7400) and RB Ronnie Rivers ($5600) getting all the work on offense before the reserves come in to finish this game, which won’t even be close.
QB Jake Haener ($7900) – Fresno State
WR Jalen Cropper ($7400) – Fresno State
RB Ronnie Rivers ($5600) – Fresno State
