There are a bevy of NC State receivers that could be used this weekend but we will go with Meyers since he’s only owned in 53 percent of fantasy leagues (compared to Kelvin Harmon being owned in 94 percent of leagues). Meyers leads the Wolfpack with 52 receptions but he only has 541 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

If Wake Forest’s poor pass defense focuses on slowly down Harmon, then Meyers could be utilized even more and there’s little doubt that NC State is going to move the ball with ease. The Demon Deacons give up more than 272 passing yards per outing.

Minnesota gave up just embarrassing numbers to Illinois in a blowout loss last weekend and that got the Golden Gophers’ defensive coordinator fired. Needless to say, Minnesota has problems on that side of the football, allowing 55, 53, 30, 48 and 42 in five recent losses. Installing a new coach will not fix all the problems in one week.

Moore is by far Purdue’s receiving target and his speed should pose all kinds of problems for the Golden Gophers. There’s no doubt the Boilermakers will be able to establish the run and once they do, then going over the top to Moore should be no problem.

JD Spielman has been the favorite target in Nebraska’s offense, but Morgan had a big game against Illinois last season and he’s too talented against an Illini secondary that won’t have answers for the Huskers’ passing attack. Illinois is giving up more than 284 passing yards per outing and Nebraska has shown serious signs of life the last few weeks with blowout wins over Minnesota and Bethune-Cookman and a near-upset of Ohio State.

This one is simple and it’s a continuing theme this week: Michigan’s offense is clicking on all cylinders and Rutgers is simply a terrible opponent. The former five-star receiver is quarterback Shea Patterson’s favorite target with 25 catches for 364 yards and seven touchdowns (he had no TD receptions last season). Not only does Rutgers give up passing yards but its offense is so bad that Michigan should force a lot of three-and-outs, have great field position and score often.
