Louisiana Tech Bulldogs At Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
Louisiana Tech (31)
Western Kentucky (31)
Spread: Pick Em
Western Kentucky’s defense was one of the worst in the country last season and that’s why we’re going to target the Louisiana Tech offense in all game formats. Western Kentucky ranked 113th in Def S&P+ last season, with most of the damage done against them through the air (third worst in FBS at Passing S&P+). For those reasons, the Louisiana Tech offense has the best matchup of the slate and they have the weapons to put up big points. Jeff Driskel is a great play on DraftKings and will only cost you the third most at the quarterback position there. On FanDuel he’s $100 more than Brad Kaaya, making him the second most expensive quarterback. Driskel had a dynamite first game of the season (12-15, 274 yards, four TDs against Southern) and should be considered one of the best cash options at quarterback. He has multiple weapons to target including Trent Taylor (64/834/9 in 2014) and Paul Turner (42/514/4). Those two are the best two targets for Driskel and should be considered great cash options with their mid-range prices. Marlon Watts emerged as the number three receiver in the Louisiana Tech offense surpassing Carlos Henderson as that third option. Watts recorded four catches for 40 yards and a touchdown in the opener while Henderson didn’t even receive a target. Watts is an elite option on DraftKings with his minimum price while he’s easy to pass up on FanDuel due to his pricing being so similar to Taylor and Watts. On Fantasy Aces, all three are great options with Watts providing great salary relief at $4,000. Kenneth Dixon is the best offensive threat from a pure talent aspect, and he’s definitely priced that way across the industry. His ability to score (63 TDs in 37 career games) and his usage (18 carries and two receptions per game in 2014) make him an elite cash game option, but you’re going to have to pay up for it.
