  Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State 

The Cowboys suffered their second loss in three games last week against Iowa State, but Oklahoma State did score 42 points and Wallace led the way with five catches for 82 yards and a touchdown. He’s the top target in Oklahoma State’s passing offense with 35 receptions for 628 yards and four scores, and Kansas State’s pass defense has been weak. The Wildcats are giving up more than 230 passing yards per outing and they’ve allowed 11 passing TDs so far this season. Need more to start Wallace? K-State gave up 356 passing yards and five touchdowns to West Virginia earlier this season.

  Damon Hazelton, Virginia Tech  

Although Hazelton is owned in only 3 percent of fantasy leagues, he’s quickly becoming a top-20 points scorer and the top target in Virginia Tech’s passing game. So far, Hazelton has caught 27 passes for 479 yards and five touchdowns. After a bad loss at home to Notre Dame last weekend, the Hokies could be looking for revenge against a really bad North Carolina squad. The Tar Heels haven’t been horrible against the pass this year, but I still like Hazelton in this spot because I think Virginia Tech can score a lot of points in Chapel Hill.

  Rondale Moore, Purdue  

In continuing this week’s theme that Purdue’s offense should have a field day against the Illinois defense, Moore becomes a logical pick to start at receiver this weekend. The freshman is one of the top scorers in fantasy leagues, even though the Boilermakers have already had a bye. Moore has 41 catches (24 more than any of his teammates) for 457 yards and four touchdowns. What makes his case even more compelling is that the Illini are giving up 289.4 passing yards per game and have allowed 10 passing TDs. Moore could have a huge weekend.

  Lil’Jordan Humphrey, Texas  

Humphrey and Collin Johnson have become dangerous outside targets in Texas’ offense but we’re going with Humphrey this weekend, as he’s become the favorite target of fast-rising quarterback Sam Ehlinger. Leading the team with 35 catches for 535 yards, Humphrey and Johnson are tied with four touchdowns each. Baylor can score, so a high-scoring affair is possible, and the Bears have allowed 217.8 yards per game and 14 passing TDs so far this season.

Laviska Shenault, Colorado  

Undefeated Colorado heads to USC this weekend for a clash against the 3-2 Trojans, and the Buffaloes are seven-point underdogs. That’s a little hard to believe but Shenault has been so dominant and so important to Colorado’s offense that it’s nearly impossible not to recommend him here. One of the biggest surprises in college football this season, Shenault has 51 catches for 708 yards and six touchdowns, and he’s quarterback Steven Montez’s favorite target by far. USC has given up 10 passing TDs this season.
