Okay, so it’s week 12 of the college football season and this is the lightest QB rankings list I’ve had. Some good plays were used up during the week and Oregon doesn’t play this week. Certainly there are good QB options this week with Dak Prescott, J.T. Barrett, Jameis Winston, Nick Marshall, and Grant Hedrick all playing … and I wouldn’t blame you if you rolled with any of those guys. However, I’ve made a very short list here of the guys with good matchups and guys I have a decent feeling about. I’ve also included some super-sleeper type plays at the bottom that might be fun if you feel like gambling.
So sorry the list is a little short, but it wasn’t because I didn’t try. Maybe I’m a bit too conservative but I do like to play the matchups and there seems to only be a few good ones on Saturday.
Western Kentucky – BRANDON DOUGHTY
Faces off against Army, which is fairly weak. Vegas has a hefty 70/5 o/u and it’s not supposed to be a blowout.
Arizona – ANU SOLOMON
He’s solid just about every week and he has another good matchup this week against Washington.
Texas Tech – DAVIS WEBB
You need to do a status check but he’s listed as probable. This is a good matchup and before getting injured he was a very reliable source of TD’s.
TCU – TREVONE BOYKIN
This is a very good matchup against a weaker KU team. The coach might let him roll a bit because Heisman hopes have been picking up.
Arizona State – TAYLOR KELLY
Maybe he’s getting better as the season rolls on? You hope he can get the TD’s up again this week against a pretty weak Oregon St defense.
Pittsburgh – CHAD COYTIK
Risky play, but does face a weak North Carolina pass defense.
Rutgers – GARY NOVA
Very risky here, but Indiana is weak against the pass and will have a backup QB in the game.
South Florida – QUINTON FLOWERS
Feel like gambling?? This guy is minimum price because he will be making his 1st start of the season. He’s a run/throw guy and faces SMU – who has one of the worst passing defenses in college football.
