College Football Week 11 CFB DFS Picks

Top CFB DFS Quarterbacks

Jalen MilroeBAMAUK900026.391050025.52
Jalen Milroe went off last week vs LSU with 155 rushing yards, 4 rush TDs, and a slate-breaking 51 DK points. We likely won’t see that again, but at least we know his real GPP upside when Bama’s dual-threat QB is at his best. This road matchup vs Kentucky is much tougher and the Wildcats defense could bottle up Milroe’s running. Still, he’s worth a look in GPP lineups since we know a 50-burger is on the table. Stay away in cash games, though.
Cameron WardWSUCAL850025.9  
Cameron Ward has been very boom-or-bust this season and is impossible to trust in cash lineups. For GPP, though, his highs are 35-40 DFS points in the right matchups. This might be one of those big weeks against a terrible Cal pass defense that ranks 127th nationally in passing yards allowed per game. This defense is getting torched through the air nearly every game in Pac-12 play and Ward can exploit the matchup when he’s on. Plus, Ward brings a little dual-threat ability into the mix.
Michael PrattTULTLSA820024.18  
Michael Pratt has been a solid cash DFS QB all season when he’s been on the slate and that should continue in an easy home matchup this week. Tulsa has a bad pass defense that’s allowing 295.6 passing yards per game in conference play (125th in FBS). Pratt has shown the upside for 25-30 DK points in recent weeks and will have success in this spot. The blowout factor is slightly in play, but Pratt should produce enough to build that big lead.
John Rhys PlumleeUCFOKST750020.6920020.27
Since returning from injury, John Rhys Plumlee is back to being a solid cash QB. He’s posted 23, 29, and 17 DK in the past three games while looking healthier running the ball. Plumlee’s dual-threat ability is what we like and he’s scored a rush TD in three straight games. This matchup, though, gives him more upside passing-wise. Ok State’s pass defense ranks 120th nationally in passing yards allowed per conference game. Plumlee can have success to be a safe cash play in this home matchup.
Bryson BarnesUTAHUW740014.54770014.37
Washington continues to win games but the pass defense is still rough. The Huskies are allowing 301 passing yards per game in conference play (126th in FBS) and have allowed opposing QBs to post good numbers against them nearly every week. It might be Bryson Barnes’ turn, especially with Utah likely throwing more in this game to keep pace with Washington. Last week, Barnes put up 28 DK with 4 pass TDs in a blowout win vs Arizona St. In a similar matchup to this one, Barnes had 32 DK vs USC a few weeks ago. He’s been inconsistent, but there’s GPP upside in this matchup.
Behren MortonTTUKU710016.39930017.47
Behren Morton returned from a shoulder injury and threw for 282 yards and 2 TDs last week for a 26 DK output. Although that was his best performance of the season, Morton could do it again against a shaky Kansas pass defense. KU is allowing 269 passing yards per game in conference play (112th in FBS) and has been lit up by multiple opposing passing attacks. Even on the road, Morton has upside to exceed value in this matchup and he’s a GPP Super-Flex option for us.
Noah FifitaARIZCOL600015.561040016.45
Simply put, Noah Fifita is way underpriced on the DK slate and one look at his FD price helps explain why. The freshman QB has the Arizona offense rolling and he’s averaging 24.2 DK points, 290 passing yards, and nearly 3 pass TDs per game in his five starts. Now he gets a great matchup against a bad Colorado pass defense that’s allowing 318.5 passing yards per game in conference play (129th in FBS). Based on the price and the favorable matchup, expect Fifita to be a popular cash Super-Flex on the DK slate and it may be tough to fade him.

Top CFB DFS Running Backs

Ollie Gordon IIOKSTUCF790029.261160027.08
Ollie Gordon continues to be an absolute DFS stud with another smash performance last week featuring 137 yards, 2 TDs, and 30 DK points. His last six games now look like this: 20, 24, 52, 55, 47, and 30 DK points. Gordon is getting workhorse volume and it’s leading to dominant DFS outings. Now he gets a dream matchup vs a terrible UCF rush defense that’s allowing 259 rush yards per game in conference play (130th in FBS) with 21 rush TDs allowed in six Big 12 games. It’ll be very tough not to play him in cash lineups with this very favorable spot and how hot he’s rolling.
Tahj BrooksTTUKU770020.94980017.96
Tahj Brooks has been a DFS stud all season and it should continue in a favorable matchup this week. Texas Tech’s lead back has 20+ DK in five straight games and 100+ total yards in seven straight while seeing a large volume of touches each week. The guy has 30+ carries in three of the last four games. That workload shouldn’t stop at this point. The Kansas rush defense is giving up 184 yards per game in conference play (103rd in FBS) with 15 rush TDs allowed in six games. Load up Brooks again for another big stat line.
Jaydn OttCALWSU750022.22  
Even in a blowout loss last week vs Oregon, Jaydn Ott still put up 20 DK points with 93 rushing yards and a TD on 20 carries and four receptions added in. His workhorse volume in the Cal backfield always makes him viable for cash or GPP and now he gets a much easier matchup. Washington State’s defense is allowing 192.5 rushing yards per game in conference play (108th in FBS) and has given up a whopping 20 rush TDs over six Pac-12 contests. This sets up well for Ott to produce as he’s posted multiple big DFS performances lately.
RJ HarveyUCFOKST670022.26900019.46
RJ Harvey is coming off a monster performance with 164 rushing yards, 3 TDs, and 39 DK last week. Don’t expect a repeat, but he can put up 20+ DFS points in a high-scoring matchup vs Oklahoma State this week. Harvey now has four straight 100-yard games with 20+ DK in six of nine games this season. His cash floor is pretty safe in a workhorse role for UCF’s backfield.
Makhi HughesTULTLSA580015.99  
The Tulane passing attack is definitely a target on this slate, but don’t overlook Makhi Hughes. He’s honestly way underpriced on the DK slate based on his current form. Hughes has five straight 100-yard rushing games with 20+ carries in each. He’s also put up 20+ DK in four of those five. The sub-6k price tag is a bargain and he should be in line for another good game with Tulane in a favorable game script against a shaky Tulsa defense. He’s a great cash RB on DK.
Phil MafahCLEMGT570014.88800012.86
With Will Shipley out last week, Phil Mafah posted a huge game with 186 rushing yards, 2 TDs, and 32 DK points on 36 carries. Even though Shipley is trending towards playing after sitting out last game with a concussion, Mafah deserves to get carries with how well he’s playing. He also had 84 yards, 2 TDs, and 24 DK the game before when Shipley went out. This is a great matchup vs a terrible GT rush defense that’s allowing 218 rush yards per game in conference play (128th in FBS). With how bad GT is against the run, there could be enough production for both Shipley and Mafah to have good games.
Jonah ColemanARIZCOL430015.08810013.11
Although Arizona doesn’t lean on the run game much, Jonah Coleman is very cheap on DK despite being the team’s lead back against a poor Colorado defense. Michael Wiley is dealing with an ankle injury and it’s allowed Coleman to take over the bulk of carries lately. He had 17 carries for 77 yards last week against a good UCLA rush defense. Coleman recently dropped 38 and 25 DK points, and he could smash value once again in this soft matchup vs Colorado. The Buffs have allowed 12 rush TDs through six conference games. He's a GPP upside value on the DK slate.
Jaylon GloverUTAHUW42006.3653005.50
Utah RB Ja’Quinden Jackson is questionable to play this week. If he’s out, then both Jaylon Glover and Sione Vaki become interesting GPP values. Vaki had been a breakout performer for Utah as a two-way player, but he didn’t record any offensive stats last week. Instead, Glover saw 14 carries for 64 yards. He’s really cheap on both sites if he is the Utes’ lead back this week and is worth consideration in GPP lineups.

Top CFB DFS Wide Receivers

Ja'Lynn PolkUWUTAH810023.77930018.82
The Washington studs are very high-priced this week and tough to roster in cash. Notice no mention of Michael Penix yet. Rome Odunze is also very pricey. They are always GPP options, but hard to pay up for in optimal builds. Ja’Lynn Polk is expensive too, but he actually might be a better per-dollar GPP upside play than Odunze. He’s gone off for some big games lately and has a similar floor/ceiling to Odunze. Utah's defense is tough, but the Huskies can still pop off.
Jacob CowingARIZCOL670019850015.83
Arizona’s air attack gets a great matchup this week against a terrible Colorado pass defense. It puts both Jacob Cowing and Tetairoa McMillan firmly in play for all formats. In cash, Cowing is the slightly safer play as he leads the team in receptions (69) and touchdowns (9). He’s been a PPR machine and favorite short-yardage target for Noah Fifita. In GPP, McMillan has upside as he leads the team in yards (753) as the deep-ball guy and has 7 TDs of his own. Both are great pairings with Fifita on the DK slate against a bad Colorado defense.
Lawrence Keys IIITULTLSA620015.09  
As noted earlier, Tulsa’s pass defense is terrible. It’s giving up nearly 300 passing yards per game and should get lit up by Michael Pratt and the Tulane passing attack here. Lawrence Keys is the top target for Pratt with team-highs in receptions, yards, and receiving TDs. His reception volume isn’t always high, but Keys is a good bet to score and put up 20 DK points in this matchup. He’s a nice GPP play while possibly going lower-rostered.
Javon BakerUCFOKST590015.2640012.26
Javon Baker continues to be very affordable on both sites despite some decent outputs lately. He has at least 12 DK in five straight games and has recently benefited from John Rhys Plumlee back under center for UCF. The OK St defense is allowing nearly 290 passing yards per game and Baker is Plumlee’s top target right now. You can pair them up in cash or roll Baker out as a one-off and feel pretty good about it this week. The FD price is especially cheap.
Lincoln VictorWSUCAL580020.5  
As mentioned above, Cal’s pass defense is one of the worst in college football – allowing 331 passing yards per game in conference play. Look for Cameron Ward and the Washington State passing game to bounce back from an ugly showing last week. Lincoln Victor is a PPR machine with 65 catches through eight games and reception totals of 12, 9, and 16 in the past three games. That target and catch volume gives him a great floor in cash as he’s now posted 19+ DK points in six of eight games this year.
Brennan PresleyOKSTUCF580014.34760011.34
We have three Oklahoma State receivers worth considering as values on this slate again. Brennan Presley is the headliner with 17+ DK in four straight games and consistent touches/role in the OK St offense. He should be priced higher on DK and is still a bargain. You can also look at Rashod Owens and Leon Johnson as salary-savers in this passing attack. UCF’s defense is worse against the run than the pass, but there could be plenty of targets to go around if OK St is trailing on the road here.
Devaughn VeleUTAHUW53009.3757007.55
Devaughn Vele had been quiet this season, but he’s come on strong lately. Utah’s top receiver has seven receptions in back-to-back games and scored twice last week. His 15 and 24 DK points in these past two games would make him a huge bargain if we get another good showing. The upside for another solid stat line is there against a poor Washington pass defense and with Utah likely throwing more while trailing. He's especially cheap on FD.
Theo Wease Jr.MIZZTENN510013.66750012.06
Keep an eye on Luther Burden’s status as he’s questionable to play this week. If Burden is out, then Theo Wease gets a boost as Brady Cook’s top target. Wease has been solid even with Burden playing, posting 14+ DK in four of the last five games with usually a consistent reception volume. Mizzou will likely have to throw more in this game to keep pace with Tennessee, so Wease can return PPR value on the DK slate whether or not Burden is sidelined.
Lawrence ArnoldKUTTU450010.8371008.67
After a few quiet weeks, Lawrence Arnold is back to being DFS-relevant. He has 68, 79, and 112 yards in the past three games and just went off for 23 DK last week with a TD scored. Arnold’s connection with Jason Bean has improved and he’s a clear GPP bargain in the sub-5k range of DK receivers. Texas Tech has a decent pass defense, but he can exceed value if he continues the strong play.
Ja'Khi DouglasFSUMIA400013.0560009.55
With Keon Coleman and Johnny Wilson both out last week, Ja’Khi Douglas broke out for six catches and 115 yards. He was one of Jordan Travis’ go-to targets in the passing game with FSU down its top two receivers. Coleman and Wilson are both questionable and we’ll see if both or either play. If they’re both out, then Douglas is a GPP value based on what he just did last week. Douglas had been hurt for most of this season but is now healthy and it seems FSU wants to get him involved down the stretch.
Coy EakinTTUKU38009.6461007.24
After being invisible at the beginning of the season, Coy Eakin has now emerged as a top receiver for Texas Tech. He had a big game last week with eight catches for 78 yards, which coincided with Behren Morton back at QB. Eakin also had five catches for 102 yards three games ago. He should be priced much higher based on his new role in the TTU passing attack while outperforming Myles Price, Jerand Bradley, and others lately. He’s worth a dart in cash or GPP against an inconsistent Kansas pass defense.
Alex BaumanTULTLSA33007.74  
If you want cheaper exposure to Tulane’s great passing matchup vs Tulsa, then Alex Bauman is a GPP value dart. The tight end’s season-long and game-to-game numbers aren’t great or consistent, but he’ll exceed value if he scores. That TD upside can give him 15 DK points or so to smash this sub-4k price tag on the DK slate. Bauman has scored three times in the past three games and four times in the past five.
