College Football DFS Picks – Week 7
Lamar Jackson (Weeknight) – I understand that this sounds like I am repeating myself, but Jackson is basically a lock every week for the rest of the season. He is just about the best quarterback in college football, in terms of fantasy, and while Duke can be a tough team, I cannot imagine them stopping Jackson this week or any other week.
Seth Russell (Afternoon/Primetime) – I think that Kansas has improved significantly on offense, but there is no way I can say that about their defense. Baylor is a tough offense, and with KD Cannon likely to return for this one, we should see some fireworks for sure. The price is very fair for someone with 40 point upside, and he should certainly be in your lineups this week.
Greg Ward Jr. (Evening) – Ward is in good shape as he gets a cake matchup against Tulsa this weekend. Tulsa is still one of the worst defensive teams in all of college football, and despite losing to Navy last week, this is one of the best teams in all of college football. I would expect Ward and company to bounce back this week, and he should be a centerpiece of your lineup.
Rushell Shell (Early) – C’mon now, you didn’t think I was going to just list the top priced options on all slates, right? One of my favorite things to do in CFB DFS is to pick on the Texas Tech defense. Shell should have no problem picking them apart in this game, and this price is just way to cheap. He’s an easy play and will be very highly owned.
Shock Linwood (Afternoon/Primetime) – The Baylor backfield has been pretty crowded, but I expect Linwood to be able to carve out a huge game here for little cost. This is another situation where we are likely to see high ownership as a result of the fact that he is so cheap.
Derrius Guice (Evening) – It looks like Leonard Fournette will miss this game against Southern Miss, and that means we should see plenty of Derrius Guice, and I expect him to absolutely feast on a lesser defense. If Fournette wasn’t on this team, Guice would be talked about as one of the top backs in all of college football, and we will see that this weekend.
Philip Lindsay (Evening/Late) – Arizona State has a really, really bad defense, and This Colorado offense has been rolling. It doesn’t matter who is playing quarterback this week, because I think we will see the running game have their way, which means Lindsay should end up with a pretty high score. He’s another pretty affordable option on the day.
Isaiah Jones (Weeknight) – The Navy defense can be tough at times, but I don’t care who he is playing, Isaiah Jones is going into my lineups. He is going to finish the year with the most receptions in college football, and with a reception being worth one point, has to be someone you are looking at in your lineups.
Dede Westbrook (Early) – Westbrook finally looks like he’s the replacement for Sterling Shepard that we thought he would be. He’s now had two back-to-back big weeks, and I see no reason why things will change against Kansas State. His price has gone up, but you can still easily slide him into your lineups this week.
K.D. Cannon (Afternoon/Primetime) – Cannon should be back this week, and despite the fact that Ishmael Zamora has looked good, this is still Cannon’s show. I expect him to dominate early and often and will be in the vast majority of my lineups this week.
LaQuivonte Gonzalez (Afternoon/Primetime) – On the flip side of the Baylor game, I really like the spot for Gonzalez as one of the top options in this Kansas offense. I don’t know how popular the Jayhawks will be, as I think people still think they are pretty bad, but I will gladly use them this week against Baylor.
Keevan Lucas (Evening) – There are a number of options you could use this weekend from this game, and Lucas is one of my favorites. He is a target monster and Dane Evan’s favorite target, and I think he could easily end up being the highest scoring player on the slate.
Jaylen Samuels (Early) – This week, we get a bit of a price drop for Samuels, after not being utilized last week in a rain soaked game against Notre Dame. This week, the game plan will have to include him, and I think we will see him put up a pretty strong outing against this Clemson team.
Evan Engram (Evening) – I haven’t mentioned it yet, but this Ole Miss/Arkansas game should be full of action and lots of opportunities for fantasy action. I will probably have at least one lineup full of this game, and Engram will be in each that I do. He is one of the best tight ends in the game and should find his way into your lineups.
