Chuba Hubbard (DK: $8,500, FD: $10,400): The explosive running back from Oklahoma State finds himself as a Must-Have once again this week as his Cowboys take on the Tulsa Golden Hurricane. The Cowboys are favored by three scores, and have a team total approaching 7 touchdowns. This is an absolute smash spot for Hubbard! Hubbard ran 328 times for 2,094 yards a year ago, while adding 21 rushing touchdowns. He also had 23 catches on 30 targets, which gives his floor a slight boost. But let’s be real, we don’t count on Chuba for catches. Chuba is the bell cow for OKST, averaging 25 attempts per game. Somehow, he actually averaged more carries before Tylan went down — 27 before, 22.4 after — but either way, he was a horse in this offense. His usage is amazing, and  he is in one of the best spots this weekend. Chuba will likely be high-owned on this slate…especially when you consider his role in the offense, and the fact that he ran 32 times for 256 yards and three scores against Tulsa a year ago. The only game he had under 19 carries was McNeese State, and that game was a total blowout with the scoring ballooning to 56-7 at one point. This game projects to be much closer than that,  so Chuba should handle a solid workload in this one and be a great DFS option. Chuba also can break plays off, handling 21 touches (6%) for 21+ yards. He had 56 red zone rushing attempts, with 28 of those in goal to go situations. This gives Chuba a great amount of opportunity to find the end zone this weekend. Both sites have excellent value options today, so Chuba does not do much in the way of hindering builds. He’s not even the highest priced RB on DK this weekend! Hubbard is in a great spot to produce this weekend, and he makes a perfect addition into your lineups on Saturday!
