CFB $250K Saturday Kickoff $50K to 1st ($20 Entry, DraftKings)


Top Plays

Jordan Travis $9,700
Jalen Milroe $9,100
Jayden Daniels $8,600
Carson Beck $8,400

• I feel like all of these players have excellent or above average matchups. I expect a bounce back week for Milroe against USF. Travis has a matchup vs Boston College who’s looked pitiful in two games and he should be able to put up points easily. I really like Daniels this week to make a statement vs SEC opponent Mississippi State. Beck could be a good contrarian pick play, I don’t expect him to be highly owned but he has potential for a big game. 

Best Value Plays

Will Howard $8,200
Drew Allar $7,900
Tanner Mordecai $7,200
Davis Brin $6,900
Riley Leonard $6,700

• I LOVE the price tag on Drew Allar this week. Allar is legit a future NFL pro who has an excellent arm. Last week I noticed the Illini defense struggled vs the pass and I expect Allar to shred them Saturday. Tanner Mordecai at 7.2K is an excellent value and I believe the game vs Georgia Southern could be sneakily high scoring. On the other side of Mordecai you have Davis Brin who I expect to be extremely low owned. Riley Leonard at 6.7K feels way too low. Northwestern won last week but they’re a really bad team. Leonard will most likely be highly owned but I’ll have a few shares.

Longshot Play

Austin Reed $5,500

• I know Reed is going up against Ohio State but 5.5K is an extremely disrespectful price tag for one of the top QBs in CFB. WKU throws a ton and I expect them to be trailing and passing all game. Reed is a must start for this price. 


Top Plays

Audric Estime $7,800
Braelon Allen $7,500
Trey Benson $6,600

• Estime is a great play this week vs Central Michigan and worth the price tag. I know a lot of people are worried about Braelon Allen but I’m expecting his ownership to be lower this week and I’m not giving up on him. I believe Allen could be in line for a big game vs Georgia Southern. 

 Best Value Plays

Damien Martinez $6,400
Jase McClellan $6,300
Nick Singleton $6,300
Jordan Waters $5,700
Jalen White $5,700

• Martinez is one of the most underrated RBs in CFB and he’s averaging 20.4 FPPG. Anytime Alabama plays an inferior opponent it’s a good chance a RB goes off so McClellan has a good opportunity for a big game. My favorite play here could be Jordan Waters, a low owned player capable of 20+ points (I like). 

Longshot Plays

Frank Gore Jr $5,000
Jaylin Lucas $4,700

• Anytime you can get Gore Jr for just 5K he’s worth a shot. Lucas is a RB for Indiana and he’s an explosive player with a lot of upside. 


Top Plays

Marvin Harrison Jr $9,100
Emeka Egbuka $7,800
Malik Nabers $7,300

• I believe the Ohio State vs WKU game could be higher scoring so I love the Buckeyes receivers. Nabers at 7.3K is a steal who has the upside to be WR1 this week.

Best Value Plays

Keon Coleman $6,500
KeAndre Lambert Smith $6,400
Luther Burden III $5,900
Derwin Burgess Jr $5,900
Antwane Wells Jr $5,500
Chimere Dike $5,500
Jalon Calhoun $5,400
Jamari Thrash $5,300

• Tons of value here at WR. Keon Coleman has a high ceiling and low floor. KeAndre Lambert Smith is someone I’m looking to stack with Drew Allar. Missouri always finds a way to get Luther Burden III involved so he will have plenty of volume. Derwin Burgess Jr will be low owned because a lot of casual have no idea he’s a WR for Georgia Southern. If Antwane Wells Jr is healthy I expect him to get a lot of volume as South Carolina will most likely be trailing big vs Georgia. If you play Tanner Mordecai you should stack him with Chimere Dike, that will be a low owned contrarian stack. Jamari Thrash is WR1 for Louisville and an absolute steal for 5.3K.

Longshot Plays

Anthony Queeley $4,800
Brock Bowers $4,700
Malachi Corley $4,700
Jaden Greathouse $4,000
Brant Kuithe $3,500
Theo Johnson $3,200

• Anthony Queeley (Georgia Southern) will probably be less than 1% owned which makes him an intriguing play in my opinion. Brock Bowers and Malachi Corley both at 4.7K is criminal, someone should call 911. If Brant Kuithe plays (Check the Injury Report) he’s a big steal for 3.5K.
