Daily College Fantasy Football QB/WR/RB Picks – Bowl Week (Friday)

Friday is a really interesting slate of games. They contain players we’re all familiar with – but most are pretty stiff tests defensively. The Florida/Michigan is almost a throw-away and certainly anyone selected from this game will be low-owned. The preferred game stack will be Ole Miss/OKST which has the potential to be a high scoring game … plus it’s in a dome, so no weather influences.

Tennessee (-8) @ Northwestern 47.5 o/u
Florida @ Michigan (-4) 39 o/u
Notre Dame @ Ohio State (-6.5) 57 o/u
Iowa @ Stanford (-6) 53 o/u
Ole Miss (-7.5) @ Oklahoma State 68 o/u

Quarterbacks

Chad Kelly – Ole Miss
$7,000 Draftkings
$9,400 Fanduel
Almost a must on Draftkings since he’s not the #1 QB on the board despite having the best matchup, o/u total … ect.

DeShone Kizer – Notre Dame
$7,300 Draftkings
$9,100 Fanduel
Certainly can’t blame anyone for starting Kizer since he’s very steady – and hasn’t flopped against solid defenses. I think he falls into a familiar range again this week – and if you’re comfortable with that, then I see no problem playing him.

Kevin Hogan – Stanford
$6,100 Draftkings
Don’t mind him as a QB2 on Draftkings since Iowa is solid against the run so Stanford might be forced to throw 20+ times … which Hogan is capable of doing.

JT Barrett – Ohio State
$8,300 Draftkings
$9,300 Fanduel
Strictly a GPP QB since he has 4+ TD upside, you’re just not sure what to expect each week from Ohio State QBs.

Mason Rudolph – OK State
JW Walsh – OK State
I HATE QB spots like this – so I’ll be avoiding this 100%. But I could see some value here on both sites given the matchup. Walsh gets the red-zone looks, while Rudolph tends to be the main QB.

Running Backs

LOTS of stud RBs you should be familiar with. However, all pretty much have matchups I’d typically avoid – so I would base my decision on who to start on number of carries and who you’re going with at QB.

Justin Jackson – Northwestern
$6,600 Fanduel
$7,000 Draftkings
Building NFL rosters sucks now that there’s no 30+ touch RBs anymore (for the safety of the players its better that way) but in college they don’t give a s**t about 20-something (often African American) boys who are being exploited while fat rich white guys take all the money. Sound familiar?? We’ll look past all that and see that Jackson is a 30+ touch RB!!!!! And on fanduel he’s essentially under average salary.

Ezekiel Elliott – Ohio State
$8,000 Draftkings
$9,300 Fanduel
Declared for the NFL draft, so I’m not 100% sure that will effect his usage, but I could see situations where Elliott is shut down because he’s got a payday coming in 4 months if he can stay upright.

Christian McCaffrey – Stanford
$9,000 Draftkings
$9,500 Fanduel
Tough matchup, but his stats project out if you can get him 25++ touches.

Jordan Canzeri – Iowa
$5,600 Draftkings
$6,800 Fanduel
Very attractive on DK even in a shared role against a tough run defense.

Jalen Hurd – Tnnessee
$6,000 Draftkings
$6,700 Fanduel
Might be a guy you end up landing on given his price – not sure yet. Might also go overlooked because of the other big name RBs on the slate too.

CJ Prosise – Notre Dame
Tough call here. I think he’s more flyer/low owned GPP play since we’re not sure on his role (or Josh Adams) … plus it’s a tough matchup.

Wide Receiver

Okay – so at WR, there’s really only 2 guys I really like. Not saying I’ll do a 100% roster type thing with these guys, but Treadwell given the matchup/price on Draftkings might be that type of player. Personally I think you land on WR’s after you’ve chosen your QB/RB combinations. There’s upside at the WR position – but most of these teams are running teams. I certainly will take a close look at the Ole Miss/OKST game – since that could develop into a high scoring game.

Laquon Treadwell – Ole Miss
$6,00 Draftkings
$7,700 Fanduel

Will Fuller – Notre Dame
$6,700 Draftkings
$7,300 Fanduel
