Dak Prescott (Mississippi State vs. Mississippi) is our number one ranked quarterback this weekend, with Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma at Oklahoma State) not very far behind as far as expected value is concerned. Prescott’s incredible usage (averaging 36 passing attempts and 11.5 rushing attempts per game) combined with his elite skills and production as both a passer (66.2 completion percentage, 287.2 passing yards and two passing touchdowns per game) and a runner (3.8 yards per carry, 0.82 rushing touchdowns per game) is what makes him such a friendly DFS quarterback every week. It’s this elite combination of high usage and awesome production that allows Prescott to overcome even the worst of matchups. In week 10, Prescott faced off against Missouri’s stout defense (ranked inside the top 10 in S&P+), and he generated 34.8 DraftKings points (threw for 303 yards and four touchdowns; accumulated 54 touches in that game). Prescott draws another difficult matchup this week (Ole Miss is ranked 25th in overall S&P+), but Vegas expects this game to be very competitive. The Bulldogs are 1.5 point underdogs at home, so overtime looks to be within reach in this one. The Bulldogs have a team total of 31.5 points, but keep in mind that Prescott is by far the number one source of production in this offense. He’s in play across all formats.
