Week 4 is here, and the schedule has picked up a bit from last week with good games scattered throughout the slate. There are 13 games kicking off between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. ET with some really good matchups all over the board.
3-0 Duke heads to 3-0 Kansas, Iowa State plays host to Baylor in a battle of Big 12 stalwarts, Clemson and their elite defense head to Wake Forest for a matchup with Sam Hartman and the high powered Demon Deacons offense and Tennessee hosts Florida in a good old fashioned SEC barnburner. There are plenty of other exciting games as well, so it will definitely be a fun slate.
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. 24 that locks at 12 p.m. ET.
College Football DFS: Week 4 Saturday CFB Picks
Jalon Daniels, Kansas ($7,900)
Daniels and Tennessee’s Hendon Hooker are our top two projected quarterbacks on the slate. While both are surely in play, Daniels gets the nod at a slightly cheaper $7.9K price tag. Averaging 31.4 DraftKings points per game so far this season, Daniels has been instrumental in Kansas’ undefeated start and as a touchdown favorite at home against Duke, his floor/ceiling combination is tops on the slate. Coming off a monster 45.6 DraftKings point effort in an upset win against Houston, Daniels should be feeling himself a bit as he tries to lead Kansas to a miraculous 4-0 start.
Robby Ashford, Auburn ($5,200)
With all signs indicating Ashford will be the starting quarterback Saturday for Auburn, he looks like one of the top value plays on the entire slate at $5.2K. Ashford is risky for sure, as nothing official has been announced. However, with multiple reports suggesting he’s taken the majority of first team reps and will be the guy under center for the Tigers this week, his value at this price point could be a slate breaker. Our projections have him sandwiched between two expensive studs in J.J. McCarthy and Thursday night’s Grayson McCall, so the risk of fading him at this cheap price tag is real.
Other Quarterbacks: Sean Clifford, Penn State ($8,300); Hendon Hooker, Tennessee ($8,100); J.J. McCarthy, Michigan ($7,700); Max Duggan, TCU ($7,100); DJ Uiagalelei, Clemson ($6,300); Riley Leonard, Duke ($6,000); Bo Nix, Oregon ($5,900); Drew Pyne, Notre Dame ($5,400)
Bijon Robinson, Texas ($8,300)
Robinson was really good for us last week and as the old adage goes; ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.’ Our second highest projected running back of the weekend, behind only Syracuse star Sean Tucker, Robinson is about as good as it gets in the college game, and expect to see a heavy dose of him again on Saturday with Texas traveling to Texas Tech as a touchdown favorite on the road. There are a bunch of good running backs on this slate, but averaging 30 DraftKings points while putting up 22+ in each of Texas’ first three games, his floor/ceiling combination is right there with Jalon Daniels.
Jirehl Brock, Iowa State ($4,900)
Again, there are a variety of good running backs on this slate so if you prefer to lock in a Nicholas Singleton or an expensive Mohamed Ibrahim don’t let me stop you. That said, Brock projects only slightly behind those two studs and at $4.9K he looks like one of the top value plays on the slate along with Ashford. It is a tough matchup against Baylor, but Brock is the bread and butter of the Iowa State backfield and considering his role in the offense he’s just too cheap. He is averaging 18+ DraftKings points through three games and he’s projected for around the same here and at this price point he’s a borderline steal.
Other Running Backs: Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota ($9,600); Blake Corum, Michigan ($7,900); Will Shipley, Clemson ($6,700); Nicholas Singleton, Penn State ($6,400); Tank Bigsby, Auburn ($6,000); Omarion Hampton, North Carolina ($5,500); Jalen Berger, Michigan State ($5,300); Audric Estime, Notre Dame ($5,100); Cody Schrader, Missouri ($3,500)
Rashee Rice, SMU ($8,600)
Rinse and repeat from last week when all Rice did was catch 11 balls for 193 yards, in route to 33.3 DraftKings points in a loss to Maryland. Rice is one of the most productive wideouts in the country and our highest projected player on the slate. With SMU two point underdogs in game with a 70.5 total, we definitely want exposure to this game and Rice is the top overall piece even at his expensive $8.6K price tag.
Xavier Hutchinson, Iowa State ($6,700)
It is hard to lock two players against Baylor but both Brock and Hutchinson are simply too cheap for their respective roles. One of the biggest target monsters in all of college football, Hutchinson is averaging 31 DraftKings with 8 or more catches in each of Iowa State’s first three games. He’s looked completely in sync with quarterback Hunter Dekkers so far, as evidenced by the 16 more catches he has than anyone else on the team. Hutchinson will definitely be a popular target at this price range so if you’re looking to fade him do it in tournaments.
Other Wide Receivers: Mitchell Tinsley, Penn State ($7,700); Ronnie Bell, Michigan ($7,300); Jalin Hyatt, Tennessee ($6,800); Tre Mosley, Michigan State ($6,400); Jalon Calhoun, Duke ($6,100); Beaux Collins, Clemson ($5,800); Cam Camper, Indiana ($5.600); Luke Grimm, Kansas ($5,300); Dominic Lovett, Missouri ($5,000); Lorenzo Syles, Notre Dame ($4,900); Michael Brown-Stephens, Minnesota ($4,900); Derius Davis, TCU ($4,700); Ja’Varrius Johnson, Auburn ($4,600); Kamari Morales, North Carolina ($4,400); Jerand Bradley, Texas Tech ($4,000); Brevyn Spann-Ford, Minnesota ($3,500)
