What’s up #ELITEMAFIA, it’s a 3-game College Football Friday night starting at 6pm PM EST. Let’s jump right in!
Jamie Newman (WAKE) $7,400 DK / $10,000 FD:
Newman’s DraftKings price dropped a $1,000 and on this small slate, I’d expect him to be the highest owned QB. Tonight, against UNC, the Deacons are favored by 3 and the game has an O/U of 66.5. UNC allowed a freshman QB last week to throw for 300 yards and 2 TDs, Newman should have a field day.
Anthony Gordon (WSU) $8,600 DK / $10,600 FD
The highest priced QB on the slate, Gordon is coming off back to back 400 plus games. Tonight, against Houston, he might be in line for a 3rdstraight. Houston’s defense allowed 49 points to OU and over 680 total yards. They rank 217th in overall pass defense.
D’Eric King (HOU) $8,000 DK / $9,800 FD
King was one of the premier duel-threat QBs for CFB DFS last year with 50 TDs. This season, he hasn’t been that productive. However, things should change tonight. With an O/U of 73.5 and WSU -9, I’d expect King to explode tonight. He should continue to be the focal point of the Houston offense.
A.J. Dillon (BC) $7,800 DK / $10,200 FD
Well damn, both sites priced Dillon way up tonight against Kansas. Boston College is favored by 3 TDs, so I’d expect the Eagles to rely heavily on Dillon. Kansas has allowed 159 yards per game and they faced Coastal Carolina and Indiana State, yikes.
Max Borghi (WSU) $7,300 / $9,400 FD)
PPR machine last year, Borghi had 9 games with at least 2 receptions last season. This season, he had over 2 in each. With 4 TDs, Borghi is in a great spot in the matchup against the Cougars.
Cade Carney (WAKE) $5,800 DK / $8,200 FD
Last weeks tilt fest started with Carney. He was a late scratch in an awesome matchup. Again, he has the “Q” going into the night and I would keep an eye on this. Back up Christian Beal-Smith filled in last week and hit pay dirt early.
Pooka Williams Jr. (KU) $6,200 DK / $8,500 FD:
Williams debuted last week and had 22 carries. Tonight, against BC who is allowing over 400 total yards a game, he is in a great spot to breakout.
Patrick Carr (UH) $3,000 DK / $7,400
Sage Surratt (WAKE) $6,800 DK / $9,300 FD
With a TD in each game, Surratt remains one CFBs top WR and targets to Newman. He is getting over 25% of team’s targets and should continue to his production in a fast-paced high scoring game. Scotty Washington is priced higher on DraftKings, but he is a great option.
Marcus Stevenson (HOU) $5,200 DK / $9,000 FD
Stevenson was pretty quiet last week after week 1’s 7/80/1 against OU. Beating a dead horse here, but the slate’s highest projected game should produce plenty of opportunities tonight.
Washington State WRs
With the high O/U and the fact that their QB has had 400 plus yards and 9 TDs thus far, the Cougars must have strong receiving corps. They do. Eason Winston Jr, Dezmon Patmon, Davon Martin and Brandon Arconado are all feed in this offense. Pairing anyone or two up with Gordon will be a challenge which makes each a GPP play.
Jaquarii Roberson (WF) $3,000 DK / $5,000 FD
Andrew Parchment (KU) $4,000 DK / $6,900 FD
