Optimal Lineup for Saturday, Dec. 26: 2 PM ET
QB – Thomas Sirk (Duke): $8,100
Finding discounts in five-game slates is a challenge, but Sirk is rosterable at a slight discount. He is available for the third-highest quarterback salary and is the slate’s second-most productive player at the position. Sirk isn’t an elite player, but in 11 games he has 143 rushes for 564 yards and six touchdowns, so his rushing ability gives him a solid production floor for any given matchup. Duke is a 2.5-point underdog to Indiana and has the slate’s third-highest implied team total with 34.25 points. Because the game should be relatively close throughout, Sirk should remain active as a passer and runner for the entirety of the contest.
In the Pinstripe Bowl, Sirk has a good chance of passing for at least 200 yards, rushing for 50 yards, and scoring two touchdowns.
