College Football Week 14 CFB DFS Picks
Top CFB DFS Quarterbacks
|When Jalen Milroe’s dual-threat ability is in full gear, his DFS upside makes this expensive price worth it. The Alabama QB just ran for 107 yards last week and he recently racked up 4 and 5 rush TDs in single games this past month. Despite facing a stout Georgia defense, Milroe will always have that ceiling potential when he’s scoring on the ground or running a ton. UGA has actually had some issues with dual-threat QBs this season, so don’t sleep on Milroe smashing the slate again.
|Carson Beck is coming off his worst game of the season against Georgia Tech. Even so, expect the Georgia passing attack to have success in this SEC title game with Beck being a solid cash play. The Alabama defense is good, but it also had trouble against the two best QBs it faced this season with Quinn Ewers and Jayden Daniels posting good numbers. Beck can do it too and get back to his 300 or so yards with multiple TDs in a game that could end up higher-scoring than the total indicates.
|Since returning from injury, Quinn Ewers has been underwhelming for DFS over the past three games. Even so, this is a great matchup against a shaky Oklahoma St pass defense that ranked 118th nationally in pass yards allowed per game in conference play. Ok St also just gave up 30+ points to both BYU and Houston to wrap up the season. Texas should score points here and especially have success through the air. Ewers has the GPP upside to go for 30-40 DFS points at his best, but the Longhorns’ strong running game also hurts his floor.
|Troy presents a tough matchup, but Joey Aguilar has been very consistent for DFS this season. The App St quarterback has 22+ DK in all but one game so far and he’s regularly pumping out 25+ DK points with mostly efficient passing and 3-4 pass TDs in most weeks. The DK price is very affordable compared to others on this slate and his proven consistency – and especially compared to slate-high FD price. Troy’s defense is stronger against the run, so at least that’s a silver lining here too.
|In the highest total of the slate, Jayden Maiava is firmly in play as a Super-Flex cash QB. He has 22+ DK in three of the last four games while usually being pretty accurate through the air. The Boise State defense has been worse against the pass than the run, so Maiava should have success in this spot. The high-scoring game flow also suggests he can post 25 DK or so this week with UNLV very live as the underdog to win outright.
|Despite being priced much lower, Alan Bowman could easily have the same or better DFS production than Quinn Ewers in the Big 12 title game matchup. Bowman has shown the 20 DK potential multiple times in conference play with the upside for 300+ passing yards and multiple TDs. This week, Ok St will likely be throwing more while trailing if the spread is any indication. Bowman could return value based on his passing volume alone and the Texas pass defense is below-average while being top-tier against the run.
|Like Joey Aguilar on the other side of this matchup, Gunnar Watson is weirdly much cheaper on DK than on FD. He’s a solid cash Super-Flex play with consistent play lately. Watson has 18+ DK and multiple pass TDs in five straight and 20+ DK in four of those contests. App St is below-average against the pass, so there’s clear value on the DK slate with Watson in cash. It’s tough to pay up for him on FD, though.
Top CFB DFS Running Backs
|Ollie Gordon II
|After one dud week, Ollie Gordon has bounced back in a major way with 44 and 56 DK in the past two games. He’s been an absolute stud in real life and DFS with 21 total TDs this year and huge yardage totals throughout Big 12 play. Yet, this is his toughest matchup of the year with Texas having the country’s 6th-best rush defense in conference play. We have to temper expectations against an elite rush D, but Gordon still always has the GPP upside to smash the slate.
|The Michigan vs Iowa matchup in the Big Ten title game is essentially a cross-off for DFS purposes with a very low total and a potential blowout incoming. Still, Blake Corum is always in play because of his consistent TD equity and locked-in role as the offense’s headliner. The matchup vs a stout Iowa rush defense isn’t ideal, but Corum can still come through in cash lineups. He now has 22 TDs on the season with multiple scores in four straight and five of the last six. That TD scoring and consistent workload of 20+ touches in Michigan’s closer games have helped him put up 20-25 DFS points or so more often than not lately.
|After recently returning from injury, Ashton Jeanty went right back to being a DFS stud. He just had 225 total yards, 2 TDs, and 45 DK last week vs Air Force and now has 42+ DK in four of his last six full games played. Jeanty is a great bet to post 100+ total yards with a TD or two and 30+ DK in this high-scoring contest vs UNLV. It’s hard to fade him whenever he’s on the slate despite the high price tags. Still, he can easily be the slate’s top overall scorer and needs to be considered in both cash or GPP.
|With Jordan Travis out last week, Florida State’s offense leaned on the run and Trey Benson more than normal. Benson saw a season-high 19 carries for 95 yards, 3 TDs, and 28 DK with the bigger role. He already boasted GPP-winning upside as FSU’s lead back, but Benson now has a safer floor. The offense should continue using Benson and the run game a ton with backup Tate Rodemaker under center for this ACC title game. Louisville’s defense is strong against the run, but Benson can still come through on volume alone.
|After taking a backseat to Daijun Edwards for most of the season, Kendall Milton has seen a much bigger role in the UGA backfield lately. He had 18 carries for 156 yards and 2 TDs last week for a 30 DK effort. He also had 14 carries for 66 yards and a TD the game prior while outperforming Edwards. Then there was the 127 yards and 2 TDs the game before that. Milton now has 10 TDs on the year with a score in seven straight games. His increase in carries and touches is also encouraging that he might be the “lead back” of sorts over Edwards now. He’s worth a GPP consideration despite the price uptick.
|CJ Baxter saw limited work last week due to a minor hip injury, but he’s expected back as Texas’ lead back. Head coach Steve Sarkisian said that Baxter likely would’ve played if not for the blowout, so we shouldn’t be worried about it. With all that being said, Baxter is a top overall RB play because of his cheaper price tags on both sites. Ok St has a below-average rush defense that allowed 15 rush TDs in nine conference games. Baxter had 117 yards and 21 DK two games ago with a full workload and we’ll likely see a similar stat line this week. Expect him to be chalky in cash.
Top CFB DFS Wide Receivers
|If Brock Bowers were fully healthy, he’d be a top overall play as Georgia’s best offensive weapon. However, he sat out last game and has reportedly not been practicing much this week with an undisclosed injury. It could just be a rest thing after he recently returned from his previous ankle injury, but we’ll need official word that he’s playing to lock him into lineups. Bowers tends to show up big in Georgia’s postseason games and marquee matchups, so he could go off for 25-30 DFS points or more if he plays. We know the talent and floor/ceiling combo are among the best in the sport.
|Believe it or not, Ricky White needs to be considered as the top overall WR play on this slate. He’s been a stud lately with 33+ DK in four of the last seven games and 25 DK in another. White has at least 7 receptions in six of his last seven contests and 100+ yards in five straight coming into this weekend. White has a lion’s share of the targets and receiving production in UNLV’s passing attack and offers a strong cash floor with plenty of GPP upside in this slate’s highest total game.
|Admittedly, Xavier Worthy has not been lighting it up this season as much as we originally thought. The Longhorns run a balanced offense and Quinn Ewers spreads it around to multiple receivers. Still, Worthy is the top target and he offers a solid cash floor with his solidified role. As mentioned above, Texas has a great matchup here against a poor Ok St pass defense. Worthy not only has the upside to go for 100+ yards and a TD, but he should have 4-7 catches and 50+ yards as a decent floor. Worthy has double-digit DK points in every game so far, which is much more consistent than most other WRs this weekend.
|The Alabama receivers are all GPP upside plays this week. First, this is a tough matchup against a talented Georgia secondary. Plus, Jalen Milroe tends to spread the ball around in the passing game without a safe volume for anyone. Still, Milroe can hit the deep ball and Jermaine Burton is the prime candidate to be on the receiving end of a long TD or two. He has 100+ yards, a TD, and 22+ DK in back-to-back games coming in and this his “revenge game” of sorts against his former team.
|Once again, we have a number of cheap Oklahoma State receivers to consider. Leon Johnson and Rashod Owens continue to be solid values and in play this week. Brennan Presley is the headliner and is especially affordable on DK. He’s been a high-volume pass-catcher for Ok St lately and finished the season strong with 15 catches for 189 yards two weeks ago and then 9 catches for 90 yards last game. Pressley has 17+ DK in six of the last seven games while averaging 21.8 DK in this stretch. The Cowboys likely have to throw more in catch-up mode and the Texas pass defense is below-average, so Pressley can easily return value.
|Chris Brazzell II
|With Lawrence Keys ruled out again, Chris Brazzell is in a prime spot as Michael Pratt’s top target in the Tulane passing attack. In the past two games with Keys out, Brazzell has 26 DK in both with stat lines of 7 catches/103 yards/one TD and 5 rec/93 yds/2 TDs. He’s very affordable on both sites for cash lineups and should really be priced higher than this considering his new role. SMU does have a solid pass defense, but Brazzell’s floor is safe right now.
|Keep an eye on Georgia’s injury news as Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey are questionable to play. Both sat out last game and have reportedly not practiced much this week with injuries. If either or both are out, then Dominic Lovett becomes a top target for Carson Beck in the UGA passing game. Lovett has already been more involved over the past month-plus with Bowers/McConkey banged up and he’s developed a nice connection with Beck. He’s very cheap on both sites for the potential 15-20 DFS points if he scores with 4-5 catches and 70+ yards.
|The Florida State passing attack definitely gets a downgrade with Jordan Travis out and backup Tate Rodemaker under center. We saw that last week with the offense leaning on the run more and Rodemaker being inefficient passing-wise. Even so, both Johnny Wilson is very cheap for a decent floor. Last week, Wilson was Rodemaker’s top target with 6 receptions for 64 yards. The DK price is a season-low for Wilson and it’s a nice buy-low opportunity with the public likely fading him and the FSU passing game.
|Like their QB, Jabre Barber and Chris Lewis are very underpriced on the DK slate compared to FD. Both are solid vash values on DK at sub-5k. As for Barber, he 18+ DK in four of his last six games and offers a strong cash floor of receptions and yards even when he doesn’t find the end zone. Lewis has the slightly higher GPP upside with more TD equity. Both are very affordable on DK, though.
|Miami’s top wideout Gage Larvadain is a game-time decision this weekend after sitting out the past two games. With him sidelined, Javon Tracy has stepped up as the team’s top receiver. He has 20 and 13 DK in these past two with 5 catches for 123 yards and 6 catches for 70 yards. If Larvadain is out again, Tracy is a solid value with proven production in his absence.
|There’s definitely value looming in the Boise State receiving corps but, unfortunately, all are GPP darts until we see how this shakes out. Boise’s top WR Eric McAlister is transferring away and that’s opened up a ton of targets and yards. Austin Bolt is one option to smash value as he’s moved into a starting role now. Prince Strachan, Riley Smith, and Mat Lauter are other candidates to exceed value.
