Optimal Lineup for Saturday, Nov. 28th: Noon ET
QB – Paxton Lynch (Memphis): $7,800
After peaking at No. 15 in the AP Poll, Memphis has lost three straight games, and during that time Lynch has averaged only 246.3 yards and one touchdown passing per game. This week, however, Memphis is a 21.5-point home favorite against Southern Methodist and has a slate-high implied team total of 47.25 points. SMU’s 44.1 points allowed to opposing teams is the third-highest total in the Football Bowl Subdivision. Finally, in Memphis’ seven wins against FBS teams, the Tigers have averaged 45.7 points scored and Lynch has averaged 375.9 yards passing, 20.1 yards rushing, 2.7 total touchdowns, and 28.3 fantasy points per game. In all seven of those games Lynch threw for more than 300 yards and in six of them he scored multiple touchdowns. With the slate’s third-highest quarterback salary, Lynch has the potential to be the slate’s highest-scoring player at his position.
In Week 13, Lynch has a good chance of passing for 350 yards, rushing for 15 yards, and scoring three touchdowns.
