There are question marks at all positions this week except running back. If these guys flop this week – expect winning scores to be fairly low since this is where you should spend the bulk of your salary.
Ronald Jones – USC
This is an amazing matchup. Madden is out. Recorded 30 fantasy points last week on 20 touches.
Elijah McGuire – ULL
Needs to get you a TD at these prices, but virtually all NCAA RBs would need to. This is a good matchup because South Alabama can play pass defense but can’t stop the run. On the season they’ve given up 5.1 yards per carry!!! 22 TDs!! And 218 yards per game!
Travon McMillian – VTech
His carries have trended up 5 weeks in a row!!! He’s faced some decent teams and done well, GTech isn’t very good at all giving up 4.8 yards per carry and 172 yards per game. I’d feel happy with McMillian in my lineups this week.
Justin Davis – USC
Consistently getting 17ish touches per game the last few weeks with Madden banged up/out. I think he’s a better tournament selection because he has 2 TD upside, but the other RBs on this slate are so much more attractive plays I think you avoid him in cash.
