College Football Week 1 DFS Picks

Game Stack: Boise State (58.5) at Washington (-14.5)

Quarterback: Michael Penix $8,400

Commence the Penix Heisman campaign right now! Michael Penix starts his second year at Washington after a storied college career. He was the man at the helm of the Indiana Hoosiers a few years ago when they had that random, magical season. He then tore his ACL and took his talents to Seattle. The Huskies will run a pass-heavy air raid offense and push the pace. Penix has one of the highest season long passing totals, and that will start in Week 1 against a very average Boise State defense.

Wide Receiver: Ja’Lynn Polk $5,700

Polk was WR number 1B on last year’s Washington roster and will be the same this year. He ended up with fewer yards than Rome Odunze but more touchdowns and receptions. These two are both great options, but there is no reason for me to pay $400 more for Odunze. Look for Penix to get the ball in the hands of one of his best receiving options.

Quarterback: Taylen Green $6,800

Taylen Green took over for Hank Bachmeier mid way through last season and did not look back. He passed for over 2,000 yards and was the third leading rusher. Green is not a “must stack” with another Boise State player but is a great back by himself. Run Taylen Green to finish out this game stack.

Honorable Mentions

Wide Receiver: Jared Wiley $3,200

Wiley is listed as a wide receiver but is really a tight end. He was the leading TE on this TCU roster and will have a larger role on the team this year. TCU faces off against a truly woeful Colorado defense as 20 point favorites.

We get a great price on one of the best tight ends on the slate, who could easily be one of the best in college this year. TCU loses a decent amount of offensive production, so we are not entirely sure who will step up and fill the void. Let’s get ahead of the curve and start Wiley in our lineups.

Wide Receiver: Drake Stoops $5,300

Stoops is back for his 6th season in the Sooner offense and in line for his most productive. Stoops has been a security blanket in his tenure at Oklahoma. His role will grow this season, and Oklahoma could be in line for a major offensive bounce-back. Dillon Gabriel is back from injury.

He was looked at as a Heisman hopeful when he first transferred to Oklahoma, but the buzz has died down. There is no reason he cannot have a great year, and Stoops must be a staple in this offense. I can see him staying in this game even if most of the starters get pulled because that is the kind of player Drake Stoops is.
