College Football DFS Picks – 12/28 Bowl Games
It’s been a few days since we’ve covered CFB bowl action, mainly due to the holidays, but we are back and ready to break down the slates for the next few set of games. There are only four games on Wednesday, but that is surely enough to put together some really nice lineups.
Trevor Knight– It’s a little bit tough at the quarterback position today, but I’ve had a lot of success through the year with Trevor Knight, so I don’t think I’m going to be stopping now. Kansas State is a good enough defense, but I don’t think they will be able to stop the attack of Texas A&M. I will be using multiple players from this team, and I think that will end up being a strategy that pays off.
Brad Kaaya – This is almost certainly going to be Kaaya’s last game as a Miamo Hurricane, and it has been quite the career. I expect for him to go out with a bang in this matchup with West Virginia. I think really any of these quarterbacks could end up at the same score at the end, but I really think that Kaaya will go a lot for his NFL stock in this game, and makes a great option.
Joe Williams – Joe Williams has been through quite a run after retiring earlier this year. Indiana has improved a lot on defense, but I think this is a situation in which they will struggle quite a bit. Since Utah doesn’t have much of a running game, I could certainly see this game turning into a run fest, and if that is the case, Williams is highly likely to have the highest score at the position.
James Conner– Conner has been the most inspirational player in college football this year, and I do believe that Pitt will give him top treatment on his way out. Northwestern is a solid defense, but I cannot imagine them being able to stop Conner from imposing his will, and if there is anyone on this slate who could challenge Williams for top billing at the position, it would be Conner.
Trayveon Williams– If you are looking for some salary relief, and you always should be, I believe Trayveon Williams is a great route to go. It would not shock me to see Texas A&M score more than a handful of touchdowns, and if that is the case, it is highly likely that Williams will have been a part of the festivities. He is priced much cheaper than the other options, making him a great tournament option today.
Austin Carr – Carr really came on the scene this year, providing a Northwestern offense that had very little excitement outside of Justin Jackson with a legitimate number two, and really, probably just another top option. I think this could be a sneaky high scoring game here as well, and if it is, there is a good chance that Carr will be the one responsible for things.
Shelton Gibson– Gibson is the most dynamic playmaker on this West Virginia offense, at least in my opinion. He can put up a big game in quick fashion, and is also the second highest priced option at the position. I think he should be a good bet to get into the end zone, and there is no questioning the potential of a 100+ yard, multiple score game if everything falls right into place.
Ahmmon Richards – The top value saving option at the position on this slate would be Richards, the Miami freshman who has totaled over 850 receiving yards, while also grabbing two touchdowns. While we would like to see the touchdown number increased some, it is a game like this where we could see him firmly make his name as a player to remember in Miami in 2017.
David Njoku – Njoku has been amazing – so amazing that some analysts have him with a first round grade in the 2017 NFL draft. I think that there is certainly the chance that could occur, he would make a much more dynamic case for himself with a nice showing here. He will probably be close to 100% owned, considered how poor the position is in college football.
