Your Friday night DFS roster will rely on quarterbacks in this contest, as Michael Penix Jr. and Ben Gulbranson represent the best QB play on the three-game roster. Gulbranson has the most favorable match of them all, so making him your Superflex is a good option.

Washington‘s secondary allowed the most passing touchdowns (20) of any Pac-12 defense, and Gulbranson grew more comfortable with each game. He threw five touchdowns in three starts for just one interception.

Even against Oregon State’s secondary, Penix is ​​your game at the other QB position. The wind should also die down after kick-off, so don’t let the weather scare you too much, but that’s a factor in this game.

With the weather in mind, Cameron Davis and Damien Martinez are certainly also in play for your DFS lineups. Martinez has been hot-handed recently despite sharing errands with Deshaun Fenwick. He rushed for over 100 yards in consecutive games and had three touchdowns.

Davis is touchdown dependent, having scored multiple rushing touchdowns in two of his last three but six overall in the last three games. He’s not quite used that much out of the backfield to warrant his No. 1 spot here, so start him if you feel comfortable with his baseline work. Otherwise, there are other options.

On the receiving side, Rome Odunze is a no-brainer, but he draws a difficult task for Rejzohn Wright. Alongside Oregon State’s Silas Bolden, as he has been Gulbranson’s favorite target, with two of his five pass ratings in the past three games.

Prediction for Oregon State vs. Washington

It’s a battle of strength against strength in this game as the best pass defense in the conference takes on the best offensive pass. Can Penix do enough against the Beavers secondary to earn their spot atop the Pac-12 standings? Or is Oregon State’s high school suppressing, limiting their overall success?

Those are the questions that are sure to be answered on Friday night, but make no mistake: the weather will affect this match to begin with.

With gusty winds and showers expected, air may be removed from the balloon in this one. That favors Oregon State’s rushing offense which is averaging 4.95 yards per carry and has 21 rushing touchdowns this year. But not so fast, because Washington’s run defense is actually the best at limiting rushing touchdowns.

Another force against force. So where is the benefit?

It’s Oregon State’s run defense against what could be considered a poor running game for the Huskies. Washington only averages 128.5 rushing yards per game, mostly because they throw it all over the field. That’s not to say they haven’t run it enough to get a good read on their ground game this season.

On 259 rushing attempts, the Huskies are averaging just 3.97 yards per attempt, the eighth-lowest number in the Pac-12. Oregon State’s defense is allowing just 120.2 yards per game on the ground this year.

Expect Oregon State’s linebacking corps to keep this game close, and the secondary that leads the Pac-12 in completion percentage against (55.4%), touchdowns allowed (8) and defensive passing efficiency (113.45) to be able to do just enough to win the.

Prediction: State of Oregon 27, Washington 24
