Unlike last week where there seemed to be a shortage of QB picks – I really believe in this weeks lineup. I’ll probably push my bets a little harder this week I’m liking these QB matchups that much. I’ve included the familiar names who face poor defenses, but I’ve also added some cheaper guys at the bottom. Good luck!
Ohio State – J.T. BARRETT
Amazing matchup and he’s been playing well. Only problem is you pay big bucks for his services.
Oregon – MARCUS MARIOTA
Good matchup against Colorado. Only real issue is you pay up big for him.
Baylor – BRYCE PETTY
Wow type matchup against a very poor OK State defense. Only hope he gets TD’s, only had 1 last game.
Mississippi State – DAK PRESCOTT
Hasn’t had ideal matchups recently, but I’m likeing this one against vanderbilt.
Arizona State – TAYLOR KELLY
He’s been getting better each week and they face off against a very weak Washington State defense.
Stanford – KEVIN HOGAN
Cheaper QB that has upside this week against a week Cal defense. You just hope Cal can muster up some offense to keep Hogan throwing late.
Washington State – LUKE FALK
Good matchup and as you probably know by now, this team likes to throw 50++ times per game.
Cincinnati – GUNNER KIEL
Looks like he’s fully healthy and back. Faces off against an okay Connecticut team. Has upside is his salary has come down where you play.
USC – CODY KESSLER
Pretty good matchup against UCLA and he’s been playing good.
UCLA – BRETT HUDLEY
Good matchup against USC and while I wouldn’t overpay for Hundley, he’s not bad if he’s reasonably priced.
Iowa State – SAM B. RICHARDSON
If he’s healthy, this is a really good matchup against Texas Tech.
Nevada – CODY FAJARDO
This is a good matchup against a weaker Fresno State team. His value is not super cheap, so you do need him to fill it up for you to gain any edge.
UCF – JUSTIN HOLMAN
If you’re looking for a low-end QB with some upside, he’s been playing fairly well the last few weeks and SMU isn’t a very good defense at all. His team is a 3+ score favorite.
Connecticut – CHANDLER WHITMER
Another sleeper pick here. He’s been doing pretty good the last few games and faces a weak Cincinnati defense.
