Garrett Smith, QB-UL-Monroe vs Idaho
We’ve waited for the UL-Monroe schedule to soften and Smith should take advantage of an Idaho defense that is allowing 39.2 points per game.
Aaron Duckworth, Idaho @ UL-Monroe
The Warhawks’ defense may be worse than Idaho’s D, allowing 320.5 yards per game on the ground, which ranks them dead-last in the FBS.
Kalif Phillips, RB-Charlotte vs @ Florida Atlantic
Phillips made this list for a second consecutive week because the Owls are allowing 250.8 yards per game on the ground, ninth-worst in the FBS, and 5.8 yards per carry, second-worst in the FBS.
Derrius Guice, RB-LSU @ Florida--Game canceled due to Hurrican Matthew--
Guice ran for 163 yards and three touchdowns in a 42-7 rout of Missouri in Week 5 and it looks as if Leonard Fournette will be sidelined again when LSU travels to Gainesville.
Zamore Zigler, RB-San Jose State vs Hawaii
Zigler has topped 90 yards rushing in his last three games and faces a Hawaii defense in Week 6 that is allowing an FBS-worst 6.0 yards per carry.
Justice Hill, RB-Oklahoma State vs Iowa State
In the Cowboys’ previous two games, Hill has rushed for 257 yards and two touchdowns, and in Week 6 he’ll face an Iowa State defense that allowing 261.0 yards per game on the ground, sixth-worst in the FBS and worst among Power 5 schools.
Marcus Green, WR-UL-Monroe vs Idaho
If we are suggesting to start ULM quarterback Garrett Smith, it would only be fitting to add his favorite receiver to this list as well. The 5-8 sophomore receiver has caught a TD pass in three of four games this year.
Will Worth, QB-Navy vs Houston
For the second consecutive week, the Midshipmen will face the FBS’ No. 1 rush defense. Houston is only allowing an FBS-best 1.6 yards per carry.
Justin Herbert, QB-Oregon vs Washington
A number of reports are suggesting that Herbert will get the nod at quarterback for the Ducks in Week 6 against the Huskies, but unless you’re in a desperate situation, we’re going to take a wait-and-see approach.
Jon Hilliman, RB-Boston College vs Clemson
Hilliman rushed for 137 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles’ past two games against Buffalo and Wagner, but don’t expect him to have an easy go at it in Week 6 against Clemson.
Lexington Thomas, RB-UNLV at San Diego State
After Thomas’ 19-yard effort at home against Fresno State in Week 5, we cannot risk starting him against a San Diego State defense that allows fewer than 100 yards per game on the ground (99.3).
Devine Redding, RB-Indiana at Ohio State
Redding has reached the 100-yard mark three times this season, but has yet to find the end zone. Interestingly, the Buckeyes are the only team in the country that have yet to allow a rushing touchdown.
Rawleigh Williams, RB-Arkansas vs Alabama
Earlier this year we suggested benching Ole Miss RB Akeem Judd against the Tide and he scored a rushing touchdown, which happened to be the only rushing TD that Alabama has allowed this season. Alabama is allowing only 68.4 yards per game on the ground and 2.3 yards per carry, both are third-best in the FBS.
Allen Lazard, WR-Iowa State at Oklahoma State
After two 100-yard games to start the 2016 season, Lazard has not topped 50 yards receiving in his last three games and Deshaunte Jones has been the Cyclones’ most productive receiver during that 3-game stretch.
