Here are my plays to fill up your daily fantasy rosters across the week of November 21st-23rd of the college football regular season.
WIDE RECEIVER: Michael Pittman Jr.
$9,000 FanDuel; $7,600 DraftKings
UCLA @ USC: Saturday November 23: 3:30 PM EST ( USC -14; 59)
USC rank 10th in the nation in passing yards per game with 319.6 overall with that number even higher in their most recent three games with 382.3. Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. has been a big part of their success hauling in 13 receptions for 146 yards on November 9th, and then 11 for 180 yards most recently.
Defensively they take on a UCLA team who have given up big yardage in the passing game surrendering the ninth most passing yards per game with 298.4 yards with that number even higher on the road at 328.4. Look for another potential double digit reception effort from Pittman Jr.
RUNNING BACK: Kenny Gainwell
$9,900 FanDuel; $8,200 DraftKings
Memphis @ USF: Saturday November 23: 4 PM EST (Memphis -14; 60)
USF are giving up an average of 205.8 rushing yards per game. This ranks them 106th in the nation. They are up against a Memphis squad who have had success rushing this season ranked 39th in the nation in rushing yards per game averaging 184 a game.
Kenny Gainwell for the Tigers’ is having a big year with 12 touchdowns and 1,166 rushing yards. He has logged six games with 100 or more rushing yards and enters Saturday’s contest averaging 6.7 yards an attempt. Expect him to rush well into the double digits and put up big numbers.
QUARTERBACK: Jalen Hurts
$12,000 FanDuel; $9,000 DraftKings
TCU @ Oklahoma: Saturday November 23: 8 PM EST (Oklahoma -18; 65)
Jalen Hurts is one of the most expensive options in fantasy, however he is a good player to build around. Hurts is completing 73 percent of his passes and has thrown for over 3,000 yards already this year. He boasts a 28:5 touchdown to interception ratio.
Expect a huge game versus a TCU defense coming off game where they gave up 333 passing yards per game to Texas Tech. Hurts has not thrown for less than 228 yards in any game this year and already has logged 4 games with 300 or more passing yards. Expect similar numbers Saturday.
QUARTERBACK/FLEX: Anthony Gordon
$10,500 FanDuel ;$8,300 DraftKings
Washington State @ Oregon State: Saturday November 23: 9 PM EST (Washington State -10.5; 75)
Washington State lead the nation in passing attempts per game averaging 54.9. This is over 10 more attempts than the next highest team in Hawaii averaging 44.4. They also rank first in the nation in passing yards per game with 437.4. Quarterback Anthony Gordon has thrown for no less than 250 passing yards a game, and has eight games with 400 or more passing yards.
Expect huge numbers and lots of attempts versus an Oregon State team surrendering an average of 302.5 passing yards on the road. Look for Gordon to extend on his league lead of passing touchdowns (39) and passing yards (4,314).
