       Waiver Wire Gemstones: Week 4

                   College Fantasy Football





Zach Smith, Baylor
Ownership Percentage: 3%
The Bears defense surrenders 37 points per game, and Baylor is likely to partake in plenty of shootouts in the Big 12. Senior transfer Anu Solomon has disappointed, and Smith might have grabbed the reigns of the offense after his performance against Oklahoma. The 6-foot-3 and 225-pound sophomore passed for over 400 yards and four touchdowns. College fantasy footballers must monitor the news closely in Waco, Texas.
Caleb Evans, Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks
Ownership Percentage: 0%
Whenever a quarterback runs for five touchdowns in a game, college fantasy diehards must take notice. Evans tied the school-record for rushing touchdowns and added 343 passing and 129 rushing yards. While those numbers are not likely to be replicated again, the freshman competes in the Sun Belt Conference, which provides plenty of enticing matchups. 
Other quarterbacks to procure:
McKenzie Milton, Central Florida
Ownership Percentage: 22%
Running Backs
Darius Anderson, TCU
Ownership Percentage: 14%
When training camp opened, senior Kyle Hicks adorned the top of the depth chart. However, the senior runner has missed two games, allowing Darius Anderson to shine in the spotlight. In the last three games, the sophomore has recorded two 100-yard outings, rushed for 355 yards and scored six touchdowns. There is no reason to keep Anderson on the waiver wire.
KirVonte Benson, Georgia Tech
Ownership Percentage: 5%
One of the more coveted positions in college fantasy football is the B-back in coach Paul Johnson’s triple-option. KirVonte Benson started against Pittsburgh on Saturday and earned 29 carries, rushing for 196 yards and scoring twice. In the season opener against Tennessee, Benson totaled 124 yards and reached the end zone. On the season, he averages over five yards per carry, and Benson is a must addition on fantasy rosters.
Khalil Herbert, Kansas
Ownership Percentage: 2%
The sophomore Jayhawk has been one of the best players in college football the past two weeks: He has rushed for 428 yards and scored four touchdowns. In the next three weeks, Kansas enjoys a bye, hosts Texas Tech and travels to Iowa State. At 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds, Herbert will be counted on keeping the ground game in motion. 
Other running backs to procure:
Justin Stockton, Texas Tech
Ownership Percentage: 4%
Warren Ball, Akron
Ownership Percentage:16%
Wide Receivers
Andre Levrone, Virginia
Ownership Percentage: 0%
The Cavaliers are 3-1 and upset Boise State as a 14-point underdog on the road Friday night. Virginia’s offense is clicking behind quarterback Kurt Benkert and averaging well over 35 points per game and 300 yards passing. Andre Levrone, one of the senior’s favorite targets the past two games, has snatched nine passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns, averaging 29.7 yards per catch. Levrone is determined to conclude his college tenure on a positive note and is making an impact on the gridiron.
Denzel Mims, Baylor
Ownership Percentage: 1%
Mims played in 11 games last year and earned a starting spot this season. As a freshman, he seized only four passes for 24 yards. Smashing those totals on Saturday, he secured 11 catches for 192 yards and three touchdowns against one of the top-ranked teams (Oklahoma) in the country. At 6-foot-3 and 197 pounds, Mims was a Texas champion sprinter and a top 300 recruit in the nation. Baylor is a poor football team and likely will trail in nearly every Big 12 game this season, which bodes well for the number of targets Mims accumulates. 
Other wide receivers to procure:
Kahlil Lewis, Cincinnati
Ownership Percentage:3%
