Patrick Mahomes primed for another strong DFS week
Another fun week of College Football is upon us. The college football playoff rankings are officially out and teams are beginning to jockey for position. This is all great news for us, the viewers, as teams will be putting out their best performances every week, especially in terms of offense. Either way, let’s jump into the value plays of Week 10.
Patrick Mahomes – (QB) Texas Tech – DraftKings: $7,600 / FanDuel: $9,800
Mahomes is inexplicably priced on DraftKings(DK) after putting up his biggest fantasy day of the year against Oklahoma State last week. His five touchdown(four passing, one rushing) performance netted him 47.8 DK points, and was a huge boost to lineups, even at $8,100.
Obviously every week is a different story, but he has some nice factors swinging in his direction. Texas Tech faces West Virginia this week. Both teams are up-tempo and high scoring, which is represented in their combined implied team total of 80, the highest of any game this weekend. Even after four straight losses to ranked opponents, West Virginia is still averaging 32.7 points per game (PPG). Texas Tech sits at 47.3 PPG, a team that’s also battled ranked teams in four of their last six games.
