Daily College Fantasy Football QB Picks – Week 9 10/29 (Thursday)

Looks like the daily sites have Thursday Only slates and Friday only. Sure would have been cool to combine the two but whatever, they don’t like holding your money up for a day when there’s NBA and NHL.

Honestly, – you have to play Boykin in cash games – especially on Fanduel. Personally, this will be a week where I play less cash games on FD and just play in some tournaments that maybe have some overlay, or I can get a decent number of entries in. The strategy I think will be to fade Boykin and hope he lays an egg against West Virginia. We’ll see – Seth Russell lit them up last game. On DK, I’m planning on working in Jones & Ellison the most and get some exposure to the PAC-12 game.

UNC (-3) @ Pittsburgh 55 o/u
Western Michigan (-20.5) @ Eastern Michigan 64.5 o/u
Buffalo (-7) @ Miami (OH) 49.5 o/u
Texas State @ Georgia Southern (-21) 68.5 o/u
West Virginia @ TCU (-14) 75.5 o/u
Oregon @ Arizona State (-2.5) 66.5 o/u

Treyvone Boykin – TCU
$9,700 Draftkings
$11,000 Fanduel
West Virginia has been pretty solid against weaker teams vs the pass this season, but have given up 12 TDs on the season and 233 yards per game. Recently were ripped up by Baylor, but that happens to everyone. I think for Boykin to reach full value, he’ll have to gain positive yards on the ground – which makes him a riskier tournament option in my opinion.

Tyler Jones – Texas State
$4,700 Draftkings
So Jones should be in thow-mode all game, which might get him into the 40+ passing attempts and 10+ rushing category. Georgia Southern isn’t a scary defense, giving up 14 passing TDs and 228 yards per game. Viable as a #2 QB on DK.

Kevin Ellison – Georgia Southern
$6,000 Draftkings
$6,200 Fanduel
Texas State has 0 INTs on the season, and only 10 team sacks – so Ellison shouldn’t get a ton of yards taken away due to sacks. I’d say he’s a decent option in Cash game on DK and you can roll the dice with him in tournaments on either site.

Mike Bercovici – Arizona State
$6,900 Draftkings
Like the QB on the other side of the ball for Oregon, Bercovici is viable in DK tournaments where you’re fading Boykin. He too has an outside shot at 4x his value against a weaker Oregon pass defense.

Vernon Adams – Oregon
$7,100 Draftkings
Viable in tournaments where you fade Boykin on Draftkings. I think he has an outside shot at delivering 4x his salary.

Joe Licata – Buffalo
$5,700 Draftkings
Only playable on DK in the 2 QB format I think. Miami Oh is not a good pass defense. On the season 17 TDs and only 5 INTs, plus 256 yards per game. Licata could break out, but he’s a limited upside guy.

Brogan Roback – EMU
$4,400 Draftkings
Looks like he’s starting again. Last week he threw 43 passes but only scored 7ish fantasy points. Too risky for cash games because you can have Jones for $300 more, but could be worth a look in tournaments hoping he gets a few TDs against a weaker WMU pass defense.
