Week 3 is here, and while the schedule is even more toned down than last week, there is still plenty to get excited about from a daily fantasy sports perspective. There are 13 games kicking off between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. ET, including some real bangers, with Houston hosting newly resurgent Kansas, Penn State traveling to Auburn for a Big Ten/SEC battle and an old rivalry renewed as Oklahoma heads to Lincoln to face a Nebraska team that just fired its head coach.
With so many games in play and a bunch of teams still playing against inferior competition, there are plenty of strong CBB DFS picks at all positions and some potentially lopsided scores across the board. This article will provide NCAAF DFS picks and lineup advice for the DraftKings slate on Sept. 17 that locks at 12 p.m. ET.
College Football DFS: Week 2 Saturday CFB Picks
Dorian Thompson-Robinson, UCLA ($8,300) — The highest projected quarterback ($8.3,000), there’s a ton to like about Thompson-Robinson this week. One of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, He showed his ceiling in a big way in Week 1, dropping 39.6 DraftKings points in a win against Bowling Green. With UCLA only favored by 15.5 points against South Alabama, expect him to be on the field the entire game. He looks like lock in all formats.
Stetson Bennett, Georgia ($7,300) –– Projected as the second-highest-scoring quarterback, right behind Thompson-Robinson, Bennett is one of the top value plays on the slate at any position at ($7,300). Bennett has been turned loose a bit this year, throwing for over 300 yards in each of the Bulldogs first two games. a South Carolina team gave up 44 points to Arkansas, so Bennett’s in a great spot at an extremely affordable price point.
Other Quarterbacks: Dillon Gabriel, Oklahoma ($9,500); Clayton Tune, Houston ($8,200); Adrian O’Connell, Purdue ($7,500); Casey Thompson, Nebraska ($6,800); Tanner Morgan, Minnesota ($5,900)
Sean Tucker, Syracuse ($8,900) — Tucker has been dominant so far this season, averaging just over 31 DraftKings points per game in two Syracuse victories. He is projected as the top overall scorer at any position. Tucker caught 10 passes for 102 yards and a touchdown, to go along with his 210 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. In what should be a competitive game against Purdue ,expect Dino Babers to feed Tucker the rock early and often.
Shaun Shivers, Indiana ($6,100) — Shivers looks to be the value play at running back. Despite his cheap price tag, Stokastic project Shivers as the second-highest-scoring running back on the slate, behind only Tucker. After struggling a bit in his Indiana debut in Week 1 against Illinois, he was electric last week against Idaho. He looks like one of the better value plays on the entire slate at his price.
Other Running Backs: Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota ($9,400); Eric Gray, Oklahoma ($7,500); Zach Evans, Mississippi ($6,500); Antario Brown, NIU ($5,500); Quinshon Judkins, Mississippi ($3,500)
Charlie Jones, Purdue ($8,000) — Jones has been dominant through two weeks, putting up 36.3 DraftKings points against Penn State in Week 1 and then following that up with a 43.3-point performance in a 56-0 thrashing of Indiana State in Week 2. He is the clear top wideout on the board this week, and his rapport with Adrian O’Connell continues to grow. At $8,000, his price tag isn’t even that prohibitive.
Cam Camper, Indiana ($4,800) — Camper is a clear cog in the machine in all formats. Perhaps the top value play on the board, Camper is averaging 18.5 DraftKings points per game through the first two contests and his $4.8,000 price tag definitely helps with guys like Tucker and Jones eating a ton of salary. He’s a rock-solid look in both cash games and tournaments.
Other Wide Receivers: Marvin Mims, Oklahoma ($8,900); Mitchell Tinsley, Penn State ($5,800); Trey Palmer, Nebraska ($4,200); Antwane Wells Jr., South Carolina ($4,200); Chase Roberts, BYU ($3,200)
