If I have learned anything, it's to make sure you play Daily Fantasy Sports in conjunction with point spreads and totals. 

Most people will be watching Jim Harbaugh's Michigan Wolverines play the Utah Utes, but that is not the game you will want to target in DFS. 

That means you get to save $8,300 on Devontae Booker!

Instead, try and stack players from TCU (-17), Oklahoma St (-24.5) and Arizona (-31.5).  All of these games feature over/unders of at least 60. 

You can add Western Kentucky @ Vanderbilt to the O/U 60 crew, but WKU is just a 2 point favorite.

Key Injuries

Best $$$ Buys

QB - Brandon Doughty - WKU ($9,000)
RB - Leon Allen - WKU ($9,200)
WR - Pharoh Cooper - USC ($8,100)

With Dangerfield and Wales doubtful, Doughty and Allen could do all the heavy lifting for the Hilltoppers.  

Best $$ Buys

RB A.J. Ouellette - Ohio ($6,400)
QB Thomas Sirk - Duke ($6,000)
WR Brandon Sheperd - OKST ($6,000)

If you need a RB and have $5,000-$6,500 remaining, you can pick between either Oklahoma State running back. Coach Gundy has said he would like to get both Chris Carson and Rennie Childs 15 carries. 

Best $ Buys

WR Taywan Taylor - WKU ($4,800)
RB Shaquille Powell - Duke ($4,700)
WR Kolby Listenbee - TCU ($4,700)
WR Antwane Grant - WKU ($3,700)
WR Dezmon Epps - Idaho ($3,200)
RB Jared Baker - Arizona ($3,000)
