What’s up #ELITEMAFIA, it’s a 4-game College Football Friday night, however, FanDuel and DraftKings decided to have two different slates. Imagine that. They both are starting at 8pm PM EST. DraftKings just has a 4thgame and it’s one that you’ll want to use a few players. That being said, let’s look at some options for the contests.
Jamie Newman (WAKE) DK $8.4 K, FD $10.1K
I would expect Newman to be the chalk QB tonight, which is fine and on the small slate, he’s hard to fade. Last game, he had 4 TD and over 400 yards passing a shootout against Utah State. Tonight, the Deacons are favored by 19 with a 57.5 o/u. Rice doesn’t scare me at all and Newman should be a great play on either site.
Hank Bachmeier (BSU) DK $7.4K, FD $9.0K
Another Freshman that impressed his first game is Bachmeier. He had over 400 yards passing and 1 TD. Tonight, the Broncos are favored by 11 over Marshall. Boise also has the highest pace on the slate running 114 plays last week. Bachmeier should have no problem scoring 20 plus DK pts if he keeps his turnovers down.
Jayden Daniels (ASU) DK $6.7K ONLY
A true freshman showed out last game in his debut as a Sun Devil. Daniels had 3 TDs and over 280 yards passing. The only problem with him is he is ONLY on DraftKings. He has a VERY favorable matchup against Sacramento State. They are favored by 35 and have the highest implied total at 49.5. This is the type of game that could get out of hand quickly.
Bryce Perkins (UVA) DK $7.4K, FD $10.3K
Another duel threat QB in an even easier matchup against William & Mary, normal a solid basketball school. Their football team, not so much. Perkins lead the team in rushes with 18 last week and I doubt that continues. They will be looking ahead to FSU and once this gets out of hand, his upside will be limited. I’d prefer elsewhere.
Eno Benjamin (ASU) DK $9.6K ONLY
Really no reason to think Benjamin won’t be leaned on heavily again. Benjamin has game breaking ability and Sac State is one of the worst rush defenses in the nation. He has the 2ndmost missed tackles in FBS with 11.
Cade Carney (WAKE) DK $7.0K, FD $9.4K
He had 25 carries last week and that’s 8thhighest in all FBS in week 1. He’s going up a Rice defense that allowed 231 yards to Army. Wake ran 108 plays last week and which continued from 2018, where they ranked in the top 5 of FBS.
Robert Mahone (BSU) DK $4.7K, FD $10.2K
In the WTF is going on category, Mahone has a $6,000 salary difference on the sites. Yikes. After a 140 plus, 2 TD game, DK egregiously priced him tonight. Mahone had the 9thmost carries in FBS last week and should have plenty of lanes to run against a Marshall defense that allowed 257 yards to VMI.
Wayne Taulapapa (UVA) DK $5.1K, FD $9.1K
Departure of Jordan Ellis left a void and it seem like this Hawaiian has filled it thus far. He had 10 carries last week and that led the backfield. The matchup is favorable and has a great floor if he can continue to get touches.
Aston Walter (RICE) DK $5.8K, FD $7.8K
The Senior back was feed 18 carries last week, which is high in CFB. The matchup against Wake is one I will be circling all season. They are a target for rushing yards. Last week, they allowed 180 yards rushing and 5.7 yards a carry. Last season, he ran for 165 yards against WF.
Corey Gammage (MAR) DK $3.0K, FD $7.6K
A WR that had 10 targets last week, shouldn’t be this cheap. Gammage opens salary for those high-priced players on both sites.
Sage Surratt (WAKE) DK $5.9K, FD $8.4K
Surrant had 11 targets with 7/158 and a score. The Rice defense didn’t get much passing last week, but tonight, Newman will test the secondary. Last season, Rice allowed over 275 yards in the air.
Brandon Aiyuk (ASU) DK $6.0K ONLY
Love this guy. Somehow after the 7thhighest receiving games last week, Aiyuk price drop $500. With 7 targets last week, the matchup is great, and he should continue to be the young QB’s top target. You can pivot off him to Frank Darby DK $5.4K.
Boise State WRs.
CT Thomas DK $5.3K, FD $7.9K and Khalil Shakir DK $5.1K, FD $9.0K combined for 18 targets and over 175 yards receiving against FSU. The matchup against Marshall should provide plenty of opportunity with their pace of play. John Hightower DK $6.8K, FD $8.2K is priced up based off 2018 stats, I assume. He did have 29 targets last year with 3 TDs.
