CFB Week 13: Sleepers, Stock Report, Fades/Targets

In this article I will cover a variety of topics. I will give you my players to pay up for and the players to fade. Everyone knows the stud players in College Football, so I will also give you some value plays for the week.

Also check out the players that are trending up and down. As the weeks go on I will add some more categories. Be sure to check out my CFB Weekly News Updates for incentives members as well. There you will find all the injuries, suspensions, and depth chart news of the week!

Stud to Pay for:

QB Deshaun Watson (Clemson): After a slow start to the season, Watson has been on fire the last couple of weeks. He has rushing TDs in five of his last six games. He has also thrown for 11 TDs in his last four games. Now he gets to face an awful South Carolina defense. This South Carolina team just lost to the Citadel.

RB Derrick Henry (Alabama): Somehow Henry still flies under the radar in terms of the top RBs in fantasy DFS college football. He has run over 200 yards in three out of his last four games. In that span he has also ran for nine TDs. He has a great matchup against an Auburn team that struggles against the run.

WR Sterling Shepard (Oklahoma): Shepard has been one of the most consistent WRs over the last month of the season. In his last two games, he has 22 catches for 288 yards and 3 TDs. This Oklahoma/Oklahoma State will be a shoot-out.

Value Plays:

QB PJ Walker (Temple): Walker has played his best football down the stretch. Over his last three games, he has thrown for seven TD passes. Also over the last three weeks he has had his most production on the ground. The UConn defense doesn’t scare you.

RB Joe Williams (Utah): With Booker out for the year, Williams is now the lead running back for the Utes. Last week against UCLA, he got 26 carries for 121 yards. He also caught four passes out of the backfield. You have to like this matchup against Colorado, one of the worst defenses in the country.

WR Jamari Staples (Louisville): The Cardinals have rotated QBs around all season, so it’s hard for a WR to get into a rhythm. Saying that Staples is coming off a monster game in which he caught 9 passes for 194 yards and a TD.

Think about Fading:

QB DeShone Kizer (Notre Dame): Kizer has struggled the last couple of weeks, especially with turnovers. I don’t like his price with the Fighting Irish facing Stanford.

RB Ezekiel Elliott (Ohio State): Last week, Elliott only got 12 carries, and he was not happy with that after the game. Now he has his toughest matchup all season. Michigan has the 4th ranked rushing defense in the country.

WR Geronimo Allison (Illinois): Allison got off to a hot start this season, but has really struggled down the stretch. He has failed to catch a TD or go over 100 yards in five straight games. Now he gets to face Northwestern, one of the top defenses in college football.

Stock Up:

QB Dak Prescott (Mississippi State): Prescott has gone over 50 fantasy points in two out of his last four games. Last week against Arkansas, he passed for 508 yards and five TDs. He also ran for two more TDs on the ground.

RB Samaje Perine (Oklahoma): Finally, Perine is getting the workload. In the last two games, he has gotten at least 26 carries. Last week against TCU, he ran for 188 yards and a TD.

WR Rashard Higgins (Colorado State): Higgins was one of the best fantasy WRs last season, but this year no so much, but he has picked it up as of late. Over his last two games, he has 15 catches for 242 yards and three TDs.

Stock Down:

QB Paxton Lynch (Memphis): Lynch has really struggle down the stretch. He has just four TDs passes in his last four games. Consider the four games before that he had 11 TD passes.

RB Leonard Fournette (LSU): The Heisman favorite early in the season has faded down the stretch. He only has three TDs in his last four games. Also Fournette has failed to reach 100 yards in two out of his last three games.

WR Aaron Burbridge (Michigan State): With Connor Cook’s bum shoulder, Burbridge production has gone way down. Over the last two games, he has just seven catches for 89 yards.
