Javian Hawkins (DK: $4,400, FD: $7,000): Two weeks, two bellcow running backs at a discount. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’ll take it. Hawkins has run 49 times for 338 yards this season, going over 100 in two of the three games. Hawkins and his Cardinals are projected right at 4 touchdowns tomorrow in a game with a 6 point spread. This is great conditions for a lead back to thrive. He is involved in the passing game a bit, seeing a handful of targets this year already. In their only game in which the starters got full...

Elijah Collins (DK:$3,000, FD: $7,200): We get a gift at MH this week 3 Saturday. Collins is the starting running back for a Michigan State team that is favored by 14 points and has an implied total of 28. Collins saw 18 touches a week ago, and broke the school record for rushing yards in a first start, going 17-192. Draftkings flat missed this one, and Fanduel didn’t raise his price enough either. Collins is in line for the lion’s share of the carries in a game that Michigan State has a huge advantage in the trenches and should be... Read More
D’Eriq King (DK: $8,000, FD: $9,800): College Football Week 3 gifts us a shootout on this Friday Night Lights slate when the Mike Leach led Washington State Cougars travel to the heart of Texas to face the Dana Holgorsen led Houston Cougars in a game that owns a 76 over/under. The pricing for this 3-game slate on both sites gives us a steal in offering maybe the most electric player in DFS last season in D’Eriq King. The Cougar QB who didn’t sniff below the 10k price range a year ago before going down to injury has had a rough... Read More
JD Spielman (DK: $4,700, FD: $8,500) Spielman was a usage hog for Nebraska last year, catching at least 5 balls in 8/10 games (including 5+ catches in every game weeks 4-10), while also being the primary return man for the Cornhuskers. Last week was a bit of an outlier for the Huskers, as it was one of the worst games of QB Adrian Martinez career against a below-average opponent. Perhaps this is the reason Spielman's price dropped on DK, because he has a fantastic match up today. Nebraska is projected right at five touchdowns tomorrow, and with Nebraska being favored...

Robert Mahone (DK: $4,700, FD: $10,200): On tonight’s slate we have a solid 4 game set on DraftKings while FanDuel decided not to add the ASU/SSU game to their contest. No. 24 Boise State returns home to their legendary Blue Turf at Albertsons Stadium ready to welcome the hungry Marshall Thundering Herd into the land of potatoes. Boise comes home after an impressive come from behind win in hostile Tallahassee over Florida State and was led by tonight’s Must-Have Robert Mahone. The Redshirt Junior from Prosper, TX is finally getting his shot to prove himself after having to deal with... Read More
