There are some tough matchups this weekend, which means your regular starters may not get as many points. Allow me to help you find some diamonds in the rough.
Kyle Trask, Florida, Quarterback
Owned in 7 % of leagues
Kyle Trask wasn’t supposed to be the starter this season. However, he has really stepped up since being called upon by head coach Dan Mullen. He threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns last weekend against Georgia. Trask also grabbed fantasy owners 16.08 points. While that isn’t insane, it might be more than you get out of your current quarterback. I would grab Trask if you have a bye week or need a quarterback for the rest of the season.
Jett Duffey, Texas Tech, Quarterback
Owned in 16 % of leagues
Jett Duffey is another quarterback that wasn’t supposed to be the starter this season, and in the same way, has stepped up for his team, too. Duffey has been fantastic this season, throwing nine touchdowns and two interceptions. This weekend, he plays against a West Virginia team that’s allowing 235.8 passing yards per game. The Mountaineers have also allowed 16 passing touchdowns this year. I expect Duffey to be an excellent pick up.
Javian Hawkins, Louisville, Running Back
Owned in 24 % of leagues
Javian Hawkins is quietly one of the best running backs in fantasy for the last month. In his previous four games, Hawkins has averaged 20.53 points. This weekend, Hawkins plays against Miami, which is allowing 97.8 rushing yards per game. The Hurricanes have also allowed seven rushing touchdowns this season. He had 18.9 points against Clemson, arguably one of the best defenses in the country. If you need a running back to finish the season, Hawkins is your guy.
David Bailey, Boston College, Running Back
Owned in 8 % of leagues
While somewhat inconsistent, David Bailey is a great running back on his day. I think Bailey is going to be great in his remaining three games. This Saturday, Bailey plays against Florida State, which is currently dealing with a coaching search and a lot of uncertainty. The Seminoles are allowing 154.7 rushing yards per game and have allowed 15 rushing touchdowns this season. If you need a decent late season flex, Bailey is your man.
Jauan Jennings, Tennessee, Wide Receiver
Owned in 43 % of leagues
In the last two weeks, Jauan Jennings has made his case as one of the most physical wide receivers in the country. He leads the country in broken tackles among wide receiver with 21. He has also had 12 catches for 244 yards and two touchdowns. Jennings seems to be one of those late season picks that may help your team out immensely. I would grab him if he is available and you have a free spot.
Hasise Dubois, Virginia, Wide Receiver
Owned in 6 % of leagues
Hasise Dubois is another player that is quietly having a great season with Virginia. He snagged six receptions for 97 yards and one touchdown last weekend against North Carolina. This weekend, he plays against Georgia Tech, which is allowing 187.9 passing yards per game. The Yellow Jackets have also allowed 11 passing touchdowns this season. I would grab Dubois based purely off the fact has been consistent. I preach consistency when getting players for fantasy.
