Daily College Fantasy Football WR Picks – Week 1 9/4 (Friday)

WR is by far the deepest position for the Friday 9/4 daily college fantasy football games. You could select any number of combination of these players & have a solid lineup … so I wouldn’t stress too much over the details. There’s likely going to be some duds, but most of these guys have a track record. I believe most grinders will be playing the Baylor matchup, but the Boise State one should be favorable for them against Washington.

Michigan State (-23) at Western Michigan 58.5 O/U
Baylor
(-20) at SMU 74 O/U
Kent State at Illinois
(-16) 51.5 O/U
Washington at Boise State
(-11) 63.5 O/U
Rhode Island at Syracuse
Weber State at Oregon State

COREY COLEMAN – Baylor
Caught a TD in all but 1 game he played in last season. Is the most expensive WR on the board, so you’ll need him to grab at least 1 to make it worth it. However, he’s got a good matchup and Baylor loves to throw. Just hope SMU stay competitive long enough so Coleman gets his.
THOMAS SPERBECK – SHANE WILLIAMS-RHODES – Boise State
I remember these two from last season. Rhodes is a versatile player, better in 1pt PPR leagues, he also will likely get a rushing attempt. Sperbeck is solid, more expensive and a bit inconsistent. For that reason I’d lean towards Rhodes in the bulk of your lineups. The Boise St QB was just named last week, but the matchup should be good as Washington was torched through the air most of last season.
COREY DAVIS – Western Michigan
Faces off against a traditionally tough Michigan State defense. The saving grace might be W. Michigan should be down a few scores late, so it’s likely they’ll be throwing.
DANIEL BRAVERMAN – Western Michigan
I think in 1pt PPR leagues, Braverman is a really solid play most weeks. He’s priced under average salary and he often leads the team in receptions. The risk is Michigan State is a tough defense.
VICTOR BOLDEN – Oregon State
There’s some question marks still who will be OSU’s QB … however they go against Weber State so I don’t think it will matter much. He’s vanished in some games, while getting 10+ catches in 3 games last season. Often gets a rushing attempt or two per game as well. I think he’s priced to where you can have him in some lineups, but stacking him might be risky due to the QB questions. Jordan Villamin and Hunter Jarmon are listed as the other starters at WR – and could be a flyer/sleeper type pick based on the matchup.
JAY LEE – Baylor
Listed as a starter on the Baylor depth chart, however he’s below average salary on the daily college fantasy football sites. Last year against SMU he had 8 catches for 83 yards and 1 TD. I think his usage rate might be pretty high because of his value & the fact Baylor will probably spread it around quite a bit. KD Cannon – Baylor Boom or Bust type player, at least he has been in the past. His role might expand somewhat this year, but expect Baylor to spread it around quite a bit still.
COURTLAND SUTTON – SMU
Shot in the dark here. But He’s really cheap and Baylor does have some members of its secondary missing due to suspensions. I fully expect SMU to be throwing all game. Listed as a starter and he’s big.
Michigan State
Your guess is as good as anyone’s who will get the touches for Michigan State. The team has a Heisman quality QB, but who’s going to catch the ball. My guess is that it will be spread around a bit. Aaron Burbridge, Macgarrett Kings Jr, and R.J. Shelton are listed as the starters … and all are well under average salary on DraftKings.  I think if you need a near minimum priced sleeper WR, you could do worse considering such a short schedule of games to pick from. TE Josiah Price is also an option in TE leagues or as a flex. Regardless if you play anyone, it’s a situation worth monitoring for future weeks.
