Tyler Boyd is a must-play in Week 5 DraftKings CFB
With Week 4 in the rearview and conference play in full swing, we have been provided with one-fourth of this season’s data. Just enough of a sample size to begin to draw upon statistical trends for both players and teams while evaluating matchups.
Looking back on the cash game skin from Week 4, here are some quick notes:
QB – To say that this lineup disappointed would be an understatement. Not only did each of the selected sleepers fail to materialize, the foundational choices underperformed. Chad Kelly (OLE) was expected to provide “guaranteed” value and he failed to record a rushing TD or more than one passing TD for the first time this season (16.84 points).
Jerrod Heard (TEX) was even more disappointing (8.56), with the offensive line surrendering seven sacks, and the receivers dropping four passes. An opportunity to salvage the day was lost when Tyrone Swoopes was given the goal line opportunity and score.
RB – Dare Ogunbowale (WIS) recorded another productive day (14.5) in place of the injured Corey Clement and Vic Enwere (CAL) broke 11 tackles against Washington (14.2) en route to producing a 150.0 elusive rating.
Brandon Holloway (MS) averaged 8.4 yards/attempt but was only provided with five carries (5.2) and Markell Jones (PUR) (8.2) and his running mate, D.J. Knox, were both bottled up by Bowling Green’s 97th-ranked run defense.
WR – Roger Lewis (BG) was the biggest disappointment in the lineup, accumulating only 49 yards after back-to-back 200-yard efforts (10.9). Laquon Treadwell (OLE) provided the only noteworthy performance (24.5) and KaVontae Turpin (TCU) was completely overshadowed by the monster game generated by Josh Doctson (3.12).
