Optimal Lineup for Saturday, Dec. 5th: Noon ET

QB – Greg Ward, Jr. (Houston): $9,400

Ward has been one of the most productive quarterbacks in the FBS all season. Even with having played minimally in two contests this year, Ward is the slate’s second-most productive quarterback, with 28.7 fantasy points per game, and he is available for the third-highest salary at the position. Further, once Ward’s two injury-impacted partial games against Memphis and Connecticut are excluded, he is averaging a slate-high 33.1 fantasy points per contest. Houston is a top-10 team in points scored, and, even though the Cougars are playing against a Temple team that allows only 18.8 points scored to opponents, Houston is still six-point favorite and has an implied team total of 30.25 points. The possibility exists for Houston to outperform this total, as the Cougars have scored 38.75 points per game against Power Five and ranked opponents. Finally, as one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in college, Ward should be involved in almost every touchdown that Houston scores.

In the AAC Championship, Ward has a good chance of passing for 200 yards, rushing for 75 yards, and scoring three touchdowns.
