Week 7 is upon us and here are the games you want to target and avoid while setting your lineup this weekend.
High Point Totals To Target
Oklahoma vs Texas O/U 75
If you are reading this, then you don’t need me to tell you to start all your Longhorns and Sooners. Don’t think about it hard and get cute. If you got ‘em, start ‘em.
App State vs LA Lafayette O/U 69.5
App State side of the ball, you have three guys that you’re starting including Quarterback Zac Thomas, running back Darrynton Evans, and wide receiver Corey Sutton. If you are in a super deep league you can look at guys like Thomas Hennigan and Malik Williams.
On the LA Lafayette side, you have quarterback Levi Lewis, running back duo Trey Ragas and Elijah Mitchell, and wide receiver Ja’Marcus Bradley. Those guys are all locked in.
Coastal Carolina vs Georgia State O/U 66.5
Quarterback Fred Payton and running back CJ Marable are the only guys I am starting for Coastal Carolina. They have been the only players worth owning. Georgia State has plenty of playable players in this game but they have all been inconsistent so it really is a toss-up on whos going to break out. Quarterback Dan Ellington is locked in on rosters at this point though.
Wake Forest vs Louisville O/U 65
Give me all the Wake Forest players. Quarterback Jamie Newman, wide receiver Sage Surratt, and wide receiver Scotty Washington. They usually have a running back get a lot of carries but Newman will steal goal-line carries. For Louisville, I am only comfortable rolling out running back Javian Hawkins. The quarterback situation is all over the place so I’m avoiding that. If playing any wide receivers you’re praying for the deep ball, Dez Fitzpatrick and Chatarius Atwell are the only two I’d start.
Low Point Totals To Avoid
Just like last week. I want to list the lowest five to ten games. This doesn’t mean I’m avoiding all the players on both sides of the ball. I’m lowering expectations if I start any of the players on these teams due to the fact of the low implied scores:
San Diego State vs Wyoming O/U 39
Wisconsin vs Michigan State O/U 39.5
Penn State vs Iowa O/U 40.5
Army vs Western Kentucky O/U 42.5
Miami vs Virginia O/U 45
UAB vs TX-San Antonio O/U 45
