Just a note, this is a selection from the more mainstream games. Sometimes DraftKings includes some cupcake matchups that you can take advantage of. If Portland State at WSU is on the board you could roll with Vince Mayle. Other than that, this list isn’t really in order, I’ll mix & match on Saturday.

Week 3 – Daily Fantasy College Football QB Picks
Week 3 – Daily Fantasy College Football WR Picks
Alabama – AMARI COOPER
Was sensational in a blowout win and this week has another good matchup.
Arizona State – JAELEN STRONG
Is the QB’s #1 option by a large margin and should get plenty of oportunities in this game as well.
Colorado – NELSON SPRUCE
Is the main target in this offense and his salary isn’t too high.
Duke WR – JAMISON CROWDER
Has 14 catches all season and is the clear #1 target. Issac Blakeney has 9 catches and 3 TD’s and Max MCCaffrey also has 9 catches.
Fresno State – JOSH HARPER
His team is usually behind in these tough non-conference games which means they are throwing most of the game.
Penn State – GENO LEWIS (14) – DAESEAN HAMILTON (18)
These two are clearly the teams WR targets as the TE Jesse James is 3rd on the team in catches with 9. The team faces Rutgers which hasn’t stopped a team through the air in a while.
Texas Tech – BRADLEY MARQUEZ
Bradley has been a TD BEAST the first two weeks of the season – he has a total of 5 … the rest of the WR’s have 2. He also is tied for the team lead in catches with Jakeem Grant (see below) with 14.
Texas Tech – JAKEEM GRANT
See Bradley Marquez above. The game is expected to be somewhat high scoring shootout. No TD’s yet this season as Marquez has been hogging them all.
Texas Tech – REGINALD DAVIS
If you need a deep cheap sleeper guy – Davis should give you some production. He’s third on the team with 8 catches and with Marquez & Grant getting lots of attention (see above) he’s not a horrible option.
Texas A&M – MALCOME KENNEDY
Had a huge week 1 then got cooled a bit in a blowout. This game will be a blowout too but you hope he gets some early looks.
Nebraska – JORDAN WESTERKAMP
They don’t have a great QB, but he leads the team in catches with 11 and both Kenny Bell (Q) and Jamal Turner (O) are hurt. Fresno State isn’t the best defense either.
Boise State – MATT MILLER – SHANE WILLIAMS-RHODES
Both are viable just about every week. The QB is a little inconsistent and they have Jay Ajai getting tons of looks though.

Missouri – BUD SASSER (7) – DARIUS WHITE (7) – JIMMIE HUNT (9)
The number above is catches on the season, all have 2+ TD’s as well. All are cheaper viable options in a decent matchup against UCF.
Illinois – GERONIMO ALLISON – JUSTIN HARDEE
Kind of a shot in the dark here but appears Illinois is throwing more and these two are pretty cheap.
Mississippi State – De’RUNNYA WILSON
Okay, so I’ve recommended this guy before. He’s not a volume guy so if he doesn’t score TD’s it sucks. The team has been spreading the ball around nicely which isn’t good for fantasy picks. Star WR Jameon Lewis only has 4 catches all season in 40+ point wins.
Louisville – ELI RODGERS
This is a good matchup and he has 10 catches on the season. Gerald Christian (the TE) is second with 9.
Rice at Texas A&M – SPEEDY NOIL
There are some other guys on the Aggies you could roll with because this is a good matchup. Noil has lots of upside because he’s a playmaker.
