College Football Week 13 CFB DFS Picks – Friday

CFB DFS Quarterbacks Week 13

Dorian Thompson-RobinsonUCLACAL940028.471180027.38
DTR is coming off a monster performance against USC where he tossed four TDs, ran in two more, and put up 47 DK. Unfortunately the three picks and one fumble lost lowered his DFS output. Still, there’s GPP upside for another big performance against a Cal defense that’s giving up 320.9 pass yards per game (129th in FBS). Limit to GPPs instead of cash, though, because of the expensive price tag and Drake Maye likely more popular.
Drake MayeUNCNCST900035.021200032.75
People may be scared off of Maye because of his ugly performance last week against Georgia Tech. However, expect a bounceback and Maye to return to his usual 35-40 DFS points or more with one of the best floor/ceiling combos among college QBs. The NC State defense presents a tougher matchup, but Maye should still do his thing and rebound from the terrible outing of last Saturday. Load him up for cash without many top choices on this slate.
Jayden de LauraARIZASU810025.821120023.73
Even though de Laura let us down a bit last week with 22 DK against Washington State (still decent), he should have a much easier time here. Arizona State is allowing 260.4 passing yards per game in conference play (101st in FBS) and de Laura has a proven ceiling to go off for 30-40 DFS points or more in the right setting. This will be a high-scoring game with two subpar defenses involved, so de Laura should be active with tons of GPP upside.
Taylen GreenBSUUTST660021.62990020.38
The Boise State offense is clicking with Green under center and it usually gives him a solid DFS floor for cash. He has 20+ DK in three of the last four games with a 6:0 TD:INT ratio and three rushing scores combined over the past four contests. Utah State’s defense is tough through the air, but Green can provide some rushing upside as well. He’s worth considering as a lower-rostered option in cash or GPP.
Brady CookMIZZARK630018.2830016.83
Cook has actually been a decent DFS play in recent weeks with 20+ DK in four straight games, including 29 and 30 DK in the past two. The Mizzou QB now gets to face a subpar Arkansas pass defense that ranks 95th nationally in yards allowed per game during conference play. Cook is a solid Super-Flex play, especially since he’s played better at home this season.
Ben FinleyNCSTUNC450011.24650011.24
Finley is a very interesting cash or GPP value if he starts. First off, we may see Finley get the start this week after he replaced Jack Chambers last game and ended up throwing it 35 times in the loss to Louisville. Devin Leary and MJ Morris are both out and the coaching staff appears to like Finley over Chambers at this point. There’s plenty of upside against a poor UNC defense that allows plenty of yards and points every week.

Also Consider:

  • Jordan Travis – Florida State (GPP)
  • KJ Jefferson – Arkansas (Cash)
  • Michael Pratt – Tulane (Cash)
  • Bert Emmanuel Jr. – Central Michigan (GPP)
  • Jack Plummer – California (GPP)

CFB DFS Running Backs Week 13

Bijan RobinsonUTBAY930029.231070026.09
If you rostered Bijan Robinson last week, then you probably cashed. The Texas back went nuclear with 243 rushing yards, four TDs, and 51 DK to break the slate. Obviously we can’t expect a repeat, but we can still count on Robinson for cash or GPP as the clear top RB on the slate. Baylor has a middle-of-the-pack rush defense, but Robinson will get the volume and will be tough to fade despite being expensive.
George HolaniBSUUTST790023910018.92
Boise State’s bell-cow is in a great spot this week. Utah State’s run defense is allowing 190.1 rush yards per game and 4.61 ypc during conference play with 12 rush TDs allowed over seven Mountain West matchups. Time to add Holani to the list of lead backs who have success against this defense. Holani should be in line for 100+ yards, a TD or two, and 20+ DFS points with Boise being sizable favorites too.
Xazavian ValladayASUARIZ750026.43960022.81
Valladay has been producing all year despite Arizona State’s struggles in real life. Now he gets one more week to put up big numbers in a favorable matchup against a poor Arizona defens. The Wildcats are allowing 223.8 rush yards per game and 5.9 yards per carry in conference play with a whopping 27 rush TDs allowed over eight Pac-12 contests. Valladay can smash in this matchup and should at least provide a safe cash floor with at least 23 DK in six of his last seven games.
Tyjae SpearsTULCINCY640022.08900021.46
Spears has been an upside GPP play for us all season and this week is no different. The matchup against Cincinnati is a tough one on paper, but Spears still has the ceiling for 25-30 DFS points like he’s done numerous times during AAC play. Only seeing 23 touches combined over the past two weeks is a tad worrisome, but Spears has proven he can go for 100+ yards and multiple scores in any game as one of Tulane’s top weapons.
Avery MorrowCSUUNM550012.27700011.02
Morrow could end up being a great value at RB for this slate. He’ll face a weak New Mexico rush defense that’s allowing 202 rushing yards per game and 4.5 ypc during conference play. Even though Morrow didn’t do much last week against Air Force, expect a bounceback in this favorable matchup and Colorado State likely playing with a lead. Before last week, Morrow had at least 18 touches and 100+ rushing yards in five of the previous six games and 20+ DK in four of those.
Cody SchraderMIZZARK470012.14750011.66
Schrader has been a value for us a bunch this season and now we get another chance to roll him out. He’s been Mizzou’s top back more often than not and has seen 20+ touches in three of the last four games, including a 27 DK performance last time out. Now he gets a matchup against a weak Arkansas rush defense allowing 222 rushing yards per game and 5.5 ypc during SEC play. Schrader offers a ton of value at sub-5k on DK.

Also Consider:

  • Zach Charbonnet – UCLA (Cash/GPP)
  • Samson Evans – Eastern Michigan (GPP)
  • Jaydn Ott – California (GPP)
  • Craig Williams – Baylor (GPP)
  • Micah Kelly – Toledo (GPP)

CFB DFS Wide Receivers Week 13

Josh DownsUNCNCST810027.311000021.37
Like his QB above, Downs is coming off his worst game of the season with only three catches for 31 yards last week. Expect a bounceback and a return to DFS dominance for one of the top wideouts in the country in the prolific UNC offense. Before the last game, Downs had at least 11 catches, 100+ yards, a TD, and 36 DK in each of the previous three games and 20 DK or more in seven of eight games this season. Without many top WRs on this slate, Downs is in a tier by himself.
Jacob CowingARIZASU770021.2910016.42
All of the Arizona receivers have plenty of GPP upside, just like we mentioned with de Laura above. Singer and McMillan are options, but Cowing is the clear alpha pass-catcher for the Wildcats and offers a safer floor with a slate-breaking ceiling. Arizona faces a weak Arizona State pass defense and Cowing should be plenty busy as de Laura’s top target.
Kazmeir AllenUCLACAL630013.56720010.86
Allen returned from a one-game injury absence to put up 18 DK last week with his five receptions, 72 yards, and a TD. The UCLA receiving corps is basically Allen and Jake Bobo as the headliners and the top DFS options, though Michael Ezeike exploded for three TDs last game. Like DTR above, Allen will face a weak Cal pass defense and should offer a solid DFS floor. Plus, he has the GPP ceiling to smash if he’s being used more as a ball-carrier like in previous games.
Matt LandersARKMIZZ560015.57800012.67
Landers has been really good in the second half of the season with at least 14 DK in five straight games and 18+ DK in four of those. He’s still pretty affordable to consider in all formats as a top playmaker in Arkansas’ offense. With KJ Jefferson back healthy, we could see 20+ DFS points and 100+ yards from Landers this week.
Jeremiah HunterCALUCLA550016.02770012.52
The Cal passing attack has a good matchup here against a weak UCLA pass defense. The Bruins are allowing 303.6 passing yards per game in conference play (124th in FBS) and the defense could have tired legs after last week’s shootout with USC. It’s tough to trust Cal QB Jack Plummer, but his receivers are decent values. Hunter has a solid floor with double-digit DK points in all but one game this season and at least five receptions in three straight coming into this week. Sturdivant at $5300 is also a good value.
Josh CameronBAYUT42005.4750004.30
Cameron continues to be a good value as long as he’s priced this cheap. The wideout has been much more involved in the Baylor offense in recent weeks as both a receiver and run-blocker. He’s put up 12, 14, and 9 DK in the last three games while Gavin Holmes is out. Even though Holmes is expected back, Cameron should still see plenty of playing time as a decent salary-saver.
Jalin ConyersASUARIZ38009.8455007.84
With Arizona State going with Trenton Bourguet at QB, one of his favorite targets in recent weeks has been Conyers. He has at least six catches in three of the last four games and has outperformed most of the ASU receiving corps besides Elijah Badger. The Sun Devils face a weak Arizona pass defense here and Conyers can easily return value with the potential for a massive return based on his increased involvement lately.

Also Consider:

  • Dorian Singer – Arizona (GPP)
  • Tyler Scott – Cincinnati (GPP)
  • Jake Bobo – UCLA (GPP)
  • J.Michael Sturdivant – California (Cash)
  • Luther Burden – Missouri (Cash)
  • Ja'Tavion Sanders – Texas (GPP)
  • Duece Watts – Tulane (Cash)
