DRAFTKINGS VALUE PLAYS: JAN. 1-2 GAME SET
1) QB Jameis Winston, Florida State vs. Oregon ($6300)
Winston usually saves his best efforts for the big stage and that is certainly the case here. He could throw the ball often in this game and take advantage of a banged up Oregon secondary. Look for Winston to top the 300-yard mark and throw in a few scores.
2) QB Cyler Miles, Washington vs. Oklahoma State ($5800)
Miles has been consistent over the past few games and could have a nice outing versus Oklahoma State. The Cowboys pass defense is ranked 110th in the country and could give up some big plays to Miles and crew.
3) QB Cardale Jones, Ohio State vs. Alabama ($5700)
Jones looked great in the Big 10 Championship game and could post decent numbers against Alabama. The match up is not ideal, but we have a feeling that Jones can make enough plays to reach value. He is a contrarian play and will likely have a low ownership % in GPP’s.
1) RB Dwayne Washington, Washington vs. Oklahoma State ($6400)
Washington has gone over 100 yards rushing in three straight games and also has five rushing touchdowns during that span. His prospects look very good against a soft Cowboys defense. Look for Washington to make it four games in a row with 100 yards and a score.
2) RB Dalvin Cook, Florida State vs. Oregon ($5400)
Cook is averaging 23.30 DK fantasy points over the last four games and has assumed control of the Seminoles backfield. He could have a big game against an Oregon defense that is vulnerable to giving up big plays. Cook looks like an outstanding punt option.
3) RB Jalen Hurd, Tennessee vs. Iowa ($4700)
Hurd could have a solid game against Iowa and comes in at a very low price. Look for Hurd to find the end zone and reach value against the Hawkeyes.
1) WR Bud Sasser, Missouri vs. Minnesota ($5300)
Sasser is averaging 16.55 FD fantasy points over the last six contests. He comes in at a very appealing price this week. He could see even more targets in the bowl game with Jimmy Hunt doubtful to play with a shoulder injury. He is one of our favorite WR plays of the Bowl season.
2) WR Devin Smith, Ohio State vs. Alabama ($4800)
Smith hauled in three touchdown receptions in the last game against Wisconsin. He seems to be benefiting from the ability of Cardale Jones to throw the deep ball and could get behind Alabama for a score in this game. We like Smith at this price and think he has a good shot at finding the end zone.
3) WR Tony Lippett, Michigan State vs. Baylor ($5900)
Lippett has struggled recently and his price is at the lowest point all season. He could have a very big game in a potential shootout with Baylor. Take advantage of the low price and make Lippett a mainstay in those lineups.
4) WR Deontay Greenberry, Houston vs. Pitt ($4300)
Greenberry has been madly inconsistent this season and is a risky play, but the upside is certainly there against Pitt. We will give him one last chance and hope he can end the season in style. He could be a great punt play in this game.
5) WR DeAndrew White, Alabama vs. Ohio State ($3600)
White has scored in three of the last four games and comes in at a very attractive price. He could easily exceed value and possibly be the key piece in winning a big GPP this Bowl season.
1) TE Joshua Perkins, Washington vs. Oklahoma State ($3000)
Perkins is averaging 11.68 DK fantasy points over the last four contests. His price is appealing and could be a solid option this week.
