This week, the column will be in cheat sheet form. Detailing a few cheap plays at each position and their matchup. Good luck.

With just 11 games on this weekend in a full-slate, there aren’t many values to choose from. Constructing a lineup will be tough, but this weekend’s games will make it worthwhile, so enjoy the slate and this weekend in college football.

Value Plays


Matt Davis, SMU $5,200

  • Davis is priced at QB20 on DraftKings, with only 22 starting quarterbacks on the board.
  • He has 15 or more fantasy points in three of his last four games, including a 42-point outburst against Tulsa.
  • Faces UCONN, who have allowed 21 passing touchdowns and 15 rushing touchdowns in 11 games.
  • Davis has six touchdowns in four games as SMU’s quarterback, and is a value play at his price this weekend in a short slate.
  • Has a high floor for a low-priced quarterback, because of his rushing ability. (422 yards on 86 carries this season)
  • Taking Davis allows you to spend at running back, landing either Jay Ajayi or Melvin Gordon.

Running Back

Aaron Green, TCU $6,300

  • B.J. Catalon is likely to miss this weekend’s game.
  • Green has over 370 yards and four touchdowns on the ground in his last three games as starter.
  • TCU faces Iowa State, who is 123rd in the country in rushing yards allowed per game.
  • Iowa State has allowed 34 rushing touchdowns in 11 games this season.
  • An average game on the ground for opponents facing ISU is 250 yards and three touchdowns. With Green carrying the load, he will see the bulk of that, making it nearly impossible to fade him.
  • Pairing him with Jay Ajayi could give you two top-five finishers at the position without breaking the bank.

Wide Receiver

Darren Waller, Georgia Tech $3,200

  • Waller may be more of a GPP play, but at his price he is worth a look.
  • Georgia Tech’s number one receiver, DeAndre Smelter, tore his ACL and is out for the season.
  • Waller will be the top option in the Georgia Tech passing game, which has value despite only throwing 177 passes on the season.
  • The top option for Georgia Tech sees a fair share of targets, with Smelter averaging around five per game.
  • While that doesn’t seem like much, most of the work to the top receiving option is either a curl or a deep pass, giving Waller a chance to reach value with just two or three catches.
  • Faces Florida State, who has allowed 19 passing touchdowns this season.
