The Saturday night DFS slate is small, but mighty. Miami-Florida State and Alabama-Missouri should offer plenty of high-scoring DFS totals, but other games offer players with sneaky good values for low salaries. Consider these six players for your rosters this week.
D’Eriq King, Miami ($8,700 on DraftKings, $10,200 on FanDuel) – King enjoyed a big day against Louisville last week, completing 18 of 30 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns. Surprisingly, he only carried the ball eight times for nine yards after rushing for 83 yards in the opener. He should roll through Florida State in Saturday night DFS, either through the air or on the ground – or both.
Bailey Hockman, N.C. State ($6,300 on DK, $8,400 on FD) – Grab a second QB for your super flex by rostering Hockman at a low salary. He’s capable of beating Virginia Tech with the run or the pass. While the Hokies are favored, Vegas picks them by just a touchdown, so the game should be competitive and conducive to higher DFS points by Hockman.
Najee Harris, Alabama ($8,600 on DK, $10,000 on FD) – Bama should roll against Missouri (oddsmakers predict them to be among the highest-scoring teams on the slate), so you may want multiple pieces of the offense. Harris tops that list. The running back should gash the Tigers defense and will likely catch multiple balls from quarterback Mac Jones on Saturday night.
Lopini Katoa, BYU ($7,000 on DK, $9,200 on FD) – BYU should run through Troy. The trick is picking the running back who will do the most damage – Katoa or Tyler Allgeier. Both feasted against Navy, but Katoa proved more active in the passing game, with three receptions. That means we should probably lean his way on DraftKings and its point-per-reception format, but you probably can’t go wrong either way this week.
Kwamie Lassiter, Kansas ($3,900 on DK, $7,600 on FD) – Kansas should play from behind for most of the night against Baylor, providing more opportunities for the Jayhawks receivers. Lassiter is definitely underpriced on DraftKings after catching five balls for 63 yards and a touchdown in the opener against Coastal Carolina.
Brevin Jordan, Miami ($5,900 on DK, $8,600 on FD) – The Hurricanes treat this tight end as more of a No. 1 receiver, targeting him 12 times last week against Louisville. Jordan caught 10 passes from King for 120 yards and a TD in Miami’s second game. The King to Jordan connections could smash again this week against the Seminoles in Saturday night DFS.
