You might want to go with Washington RB Bishop Sankey and Oregon RB DeAnthony Thomas this week in daily fantasy games. But if you get one of those players you might need to save money on an additional running back or flex option. Here are some week 3 daily college football fantasy sleeper picks at RB. Prices come from fantasy site Draft Kings and salaries can vary from site to site. Draft Kings has some good college daily fantasy games popping off on Saturday’s so check them out.
Paul James – Rutgers – Draft Kings Price: $2,500
Eastern Michigan Eagles at Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Another easy game for Rutgers in week 3 which could mean more TD’s and 100 rushing yards from Paul James. Has been a great value the first two weeks of the season on Draft Kings. He was one of my RB sleepers from last week and he paid off big.
Jordon James – UCLA – Draft Kings Price: $2,500
UCLA Bruins at Nebraska Cornhuskers
This could be a high scoring game in Lincoln, Nebraska and James was great for UCLA in week 1. Coaches for UCLA hinted at a split carry situation to begin the year but look for James to get at least 15-25 carries in this game. If he finds the end zone or puts up huge yardage he is a great sleeper in daily fantasy leagues.
Tre Madden – USC – Draft Kings Price: $2,500
Boston College Eagles at USC Trojans
Had a decent game in week 2 where he had 32 carries and 151 yards. Hasn’t found the endzone yet this year for a TD. The USC offense struggled big time in week 2. In week 3 I could see them to continue to rely on Tre Madden to carry a bulk of the rushing load. If he scores a TD, he will be a huge value at $2,500.
Mark Weisman – Iowa – Draft Kings Price: $6,000
Iowa Hawkeyes at Iowa State Cyclones
Weisman is a big back that took on a huge workload in week 2. He worked hard in the offseason and the coaches like him. Some other guys on Iowa will get some carries in the week 3 game but Weisman is a good value as the #26 highest priced RB on Draft Kings.
