Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?

psufans2: Zach Charbonnet has sat out two games this year without notice and DTR had a super early yank as well. I am very concerned that one or both of these guys could sit out (there is no news in regards to this, but I am concerned) and if they sit there would likely be no indication including them warming up first.

headChopper: Over the last four games, Cody Schrader has led the Missouri RBs in snaps each game. He has played 84%, 67%, 89%, and 87% of the offensive snaps in those 4 games.

STLCardinals84: Xazavian Valladay has scored a rushing touchdown in all but one game this season, and now he gets to face an Arizona defense that ranks 120th in the FBS in rush defense, allowing over 200 yards per game on the ground.

What’s your hot take of the week?

psufans2: Cody Schrader finally pays off the volume he has been getting.

headChopper: ASU/ARI shoots out and a game stack takes down GPP’s with Valladay and a WR being optimal for ASU followed by JDL/Cowing and Singer (or McMillan) each receiving their yardage bonus on the other side.

STLCardinals84: Missouri scores 40 points, and three offensive players from that team are on the winning GPP build.

What is your favorite correlation of the week and why?

psufans2: De Laura and his receivers are the best as they will likely throw a lot against a poor defense and everything is very concentrated.

headChopper: JDL to Cowing (Arizona) – There are a few good QB to WR stacks this slate, but there are a lot of QBs who only run and cannot pass worth a lick also. The Arizona stack stands out to me because of the game environment and a classic rebound spot after disappointing last week.

STLCardinals84: I love stacks of Arizona / Arizona State along with everyone else, but it’s hard to get away from that game. I’ll have plenty of De Laura + his WRs with the Valladay runback on the other side.

Who is your top overall play (when considering price, matchup, projected ownership, etc.) on the board and why?

psufans2: Xazavian Valladay has been great all year and he gets arguably his best matchup of the season here.

headChopper: Xazavian Valladay – Just a workhorse in a great game environment and a reasonable salary. X-man has cracked the 100-yard bonus in 7 of 11 games this season. He’s targeted heavily in the passing game and has scored at least 1 TD in ALL but 1 game this season.

STLCardinals84: Xazavian Valladay – His role is secure, he’s scoring every week, and he faces a woeful rush defense. I love the pivot to others in GPP builds, but Valladay is your starting point.
