Daily College Fantasy Football WR Picks – Week 2 9/12 (Early Saturday)

Week 2 of the daily fantasy football season is almost here! These are my WR rankings for the early games on Saturday 9/12/2015. I will post information on the late games tomorrow. I feel there are lots of high-end WRs you can choose from, so it might be kind of hard cutting salary with this group. There will no-doubt be guys that emerge again this week, but it’s likely you won’t get burned too much considering most people will be sticking with the names that produced during week 1.

Week 2 CFB – QB Rankings (Early)
Week 2 CFB – RB Rankings (Early)

Top Shelf

Nelson Spruce – Colorado
$8,100 FanDuel
I fell in love with this guy last season, so my ranking my be a little biased. He often racks up multiple catches per game. Umass is a bit of a mystery defense because they didn’t play last week, but they weren’t particularly tough in 2014.

Leonte Carroo – Rutgers
$7,400 FanDuel
$6,700 DraftKings
Was suspended for part of week 1 but still lit it up. Faces off against a pretty weak Washington State defense.

Keon Hatcher – Arkansas
$7,200 FanDuel
$6,100 DraftKings
Had a really good week 1 and has a favorable matchup against Toledo at home.

Braxton Miller – Ohio State
$7,300 FanDuel
$6,300 DraftKings
Was sensastional week 1. I was surprised how easy he made it look to change positions. I believe he’ll have a similar role this week despite some of OSU’s players returning from suspension. In short, he’ll need to produce at a high level on a limited amount of touches.

Gabe Marks – Washington State
$6,800 FanDuel
$6,400 DraftKings
Good to see him back. He’s a #1 WR type talent, but still priced outside the top 5. Going up against Rutgers who were solid against the pass during week 1 and improved in 2014 on defense, but this week they face a real test. I’d have Marks (and other WSU WR’s) ranked higher if the matchup was more favorable.

Artavis Scott – Clemson
$7,900 DraftKings
Not much to really say here. I’ve heard some noise that App St will put up a fight, which actually might be favorable for Scott … who needs Clemson in throw mode to put up good numbers. I think he’s priced at the top-end of his range so he’ll need to fill up the stat sheet to provide much upside.

Mid-Grade

Tajae Sharpe – Umass
$6,900 FanDuel
I like this matchup against an average Colorado pass defense. Also, Umass didn’t play last week, so Sharpe is going to fly under the radar a bit. Last season he had 85 receptions for 1,200+ yards … so he’s a #1 WR who’s now a senior.

Amara Darboh – Michigan
$6,500 FanDuel
$5,100 DraftKings
Michigan might change up their strategy a bit, but they threw the ball a lot week 1. That was good for Darboh who caught 8 passes for 101 yards and 1 TD. Vegas doesn’t see this one being super high scoring, but either way, Darboh isn’t super expensive for a guy that could see similar production this week.

Laquon Treadwell – Ole Miss
$5,800 FanDuel
$5,600 DraftKings
#1 WR talent here, priced fairly affordably. The matchup against Fresno State is very favorable, but it’s possible Treadwell won’t get much work until the score gets out of hand.

Sleeper CFB Wr’s

Jared Cornelius – Arkansas
$4,500 FanDuel
$4,500 DraftKings
If you need a low priced WR that has a chance at upside, Cornelius is not a terrible option. The matchup is good, and teammate Keon Hatcher is going to draw the defenses attention most snaps.

Marcus Kemp – Hawaii
$5,900 FanDuel
$4,700 DraftKings
Risky, but you have to figure Hawaii will be in throw-mode all game against Ohio State.

Alex Erickson – Wisconsin
$6,200 FanDuel
$4,900 DraftKings
Wisconsin shocked me (and many others) by throwing 39 times last week. I have no idea if they will have a similar gameplan heading into this week but the matchup is good against Miami (OH). I like Erickson more on DK, where he’s well below average salary … just in case Wisconsin goes back to the ground & pound and/or takes an early lead this week.
