College Football DFS Week 3: Targets and fades

College Football Fantasy Pick: Quarterback


Dorian Thompson-Robinson – UCLA ($8.3,000) With so many attractive mid-priced QBs on the main roster, I’ll be looking to save some money in this position. However, that doesn’t mean DTR won’t fire up and have a monster game. Given a clean bill of health, we don’t have to worry about the injury, which means we should see another fantastic 35-plus point performance like Week 1 against Bowling Green.

Aidan O’Connell – Purdue ($7.5,000) Purdue will throw the stone all over the field and AOC will produce regardless of the opponent. He threw for 356 yards against Penn St, but only 1 TD pass was a disappointment. Expect roughly the same yards against the ‘Cuse with one to two more TDs.

Stetson Bennett – Georgia ($7.3,000) I never thought I would spend so much money on Stetson Bennett, but the veteran QB has got off to a stellar start this year. Consecutive passing games over 300 yards and consecutive games with a rushing TD! Plus, UGA might actually have to spend a few in the 2H against an SEC opponent, so expect another stellar outing.

Casey Thompson – Nebraska ($6.8,000) Say what you want about the Huskers, but in 3 games, Thompson has nearly 900 passing yards and 8 total touchdowns. Nebraska is at home and will have to keep pace with the Sooners’ offense. He can still throw a few picks, but it’s a volume game with an edge.

Milestone Daniels – Kansas ($6.5,000) don’t look now, but the Jayhawks are playing well and it starts with QB Jalon Daniels. He has made progress as a passer (like 3 touchdowns in the air against WVU) but really provides another element with his legs (85 yards running against WVU). Kansas just entered a hostile environment and won a conference on the road so as not to be outplayed by a Houston D that allows 343 to pass YPG.

Garrett Shrader – Syracuse ($6.4,000) “The Shredder” might be my favorite QB game of the day. Still highly undervalued, Garrett Schrader has over 30 consecutive fantastic performances and he’s still under $6.5,000 – sign me up!


Jaxson Dart-Miss Ole ($9,000) it’s obvious. The second most expensive QB on the slate is not expected to be splitting his time with another QB (Luke Altmeyer – $6.8,000) from his own team.

College Football Fantasy Picks: Running Back


Mohamed Ibrahim – Minnesota ($9.4,000) I know the price is high but Mo Ibrahim is a lock on 100 yards and a few touchdowns. My approach in this list will be to have a more balanced range, but if you go for “Stars and Scrubs” the MN RB is one of the stars to target.

Ray Davis-Vanderbilt ($6.8,000) One under-the-radar game on this slate that could produce a ton of fantastic points is Vandy at NIU. With Rocko Griffin injured, Davis has the backfield to himself against a MAC opponent. It’s a perfect place to play Davis who also plans to have low ownership.

Kenny McIntosh – Georgia ($6.7,000) McIntosh does his best Jared Cook impersonation this year as the Dawg’s pass catches up. In two games, he caught 14 balls for 178 yards while recording a rushing TD in both games.

Zach Evans – Ole Miss ($6.5,000) Evans is one of the most electric fullbacks in the country, but his advantage is somewhat limited by Kiffin’s RBBC approach. The TCU transfer should still have a good game against Georgia Tech, but I just wish he got more than 20 touches per game.

Zach Charbonnet – UCLA ($6.3,000) another Bruin with injury issues, but it looks like the Michigan transfer is set to flip after missing the game against Alcorn St. If healthy, Charbonnet is a steal at just $6.3,000 at home against a G5 opponent.

Tank Bigsby–Auburn ($5.6,000) Bigsby is just underpriced here at under $6,000. Auburn will be looking to pound the rock, which should lead to 20-plus touches for Tank. That alone is reason enough to field the Tiger RB1.

Daniel Hishaw – Kansas ($4.9,000) while the Houston D was mostly notched in the air, the Kansas RBs are priced too low. Hishaw and Devin Neal ($5.4,000) split the keys equally but have always been very productive. While most DFS players could field Neal, Hishaw makes good pivot play if you want pieces of that Kansas offense.


Sean Tucker – Syracuse ($8.9,000) Hear me out – I love Sean Tucker but I’m not crazy about lining him and Garrett Shrader up against a Purdue D that stuffed the ground game at Penn St. So even if Tucker could still kill, I’d rather line the QB up $2.5,000.

College Football Fantasy Picks: Wide Receiver


Charlie Jones-Purdue ($8,000) 21 catches for 286 yards and 4 touchdowns in two games. ‘Nuff said. AOC’s childhood friend absolutely crushed him at Purdue, which makes me wonder why he ever signed up to play for Iowa. Very wise transfer my man.

Brock Bowers – Georgia ($7,000) – I know it’s hard to drop $7,000 on a TE who’s only caught 5 balls for 95 yards in 2 games and hasn’t scored a TD yet. However, Bowers is a beast and an escape game is coming.

Jalen Wayne – Southern Alabama ($5.5,000) 10 catches in each of the first two games plus a game scenario that should see the Jaguars through often. All that and this guy only cost $5.5,000? It’s not like UCLA D was that impressive – BG scored 17 points in Week 1 of 1H.

Daewood Davis – West Kent ($5.2,000) We’ll get to another Hilltopper WR soon, but the transfer from Oregon St plays on one of the happiest teams in the country and happens to lead that team in receptions and yards. WK scored 31 points on IU last year and will find success in the air again this year. Davis is undervalued here.

Cam Camper – Indiana ($4.8,000) let’s stay in the same game and fade the Hilltopper D this time. Like Davis above, Camper leads his team in receptions and yards and costs less than $5,000. The price is correct and the correspondence too.

Keanu Hill – BYU ($3.5,000) only watch Hill if Gunner Romney ($6,000) and Puke Nucua ($4.4,000) are still out for BYU. None of the WRs played last week, leading Hill to strike out 4 for 57 yards. Romney and Nucua have the dreaded GTD beacon, so we’ll have to be very careful before kickoff.


Malachi Corley – West Kent ($8.1,000) I like Corley as a WR but there’s no way he’s $2.9,000 more expensive than Daewood Davis. Corley is too expensive for a guy who caught 4 balls for just 12 yards last week. Buy elsewhere.
