This article is part of our Start vs. Sit series.
Welcome into Week 4 of our Start/Sit series. We made it out of last week mostly unscathed (save for J'Mon Moore … more on him later) and we look forward to another big week. We'll be treated to shootouts like Oklahoma State-TCU and slugfests like Georgia-Mississippi State and Alabama-Vanderbilt. Let's look at what's on tap this week.
PLAYERS TO START
Kyle Allen, QB, Houston (vs. Texas Tech): OK, it's a little disrespectful to have Tech as nearly touchdown dogs this weekend, but I mean, have you seen that defense? Tech's defensive S&P+ sits at 122nd in the nation, right in the same neighborhood as the likes of UNLV and Hawaii. Allen, who completed 31 of 33 passes for 309 yards last week against Rice, should have little trouble picking this Red Raiders defense apart in what should be a shootout. (Temple's Logan Marchi might be a sneaky spec add this week against a USF defense that hasn't been all that impressive yet.)
Daniel Jones, QB, Duke (at North Carolina): Jones disappointed in a pretty favorable matchup last week against Baylor, completing just 57.1 percent of his passes and accounting for less than 200 total yards of offense and zero touchdowns. Count me as one who's buying a bounceback this week against UNC. Jones' Blue Devils have played at warp speed this season at a clip of 97.0 plays per game, which trails only South Florida in tempo. With that, Jones will get plenty of shots through
