News: Texas quarterback Case McCoy is no longer listed as a co-starter with David Ash - it's now McCoy alone at the top. Also, wide receiver Mike Davis is listed as a backup to Miles Onyegbule.

News: Texas receiver Jaxon Shipley (knee) will miss Saturday's game against Missouri.

News: In case you haven't heard, Kansas ranked second to last in both pass defense and rush defense, so it might be a good time to start running back Malcolm Brown and give David Ash a second chance after his first career start.
Analysis: There haven't been any standout fantasy performers other than Brown for the Longhorns, so it's hard to say exactly who will have a big day, but receivers Jaxon Shipley and Mike Davis could have breakout games if you're in a pinch.
