Here are my WR picks for Week 3 of the daily college fantasy football season kicking off on Saturday 9/19. These selections are for the early games, my late game picks will come on Friday. Honestly, I think the strategy is to play the value pick WRs this week because there seems to be lots of mid-low priced options.

Western Kentucky @ Indiana (-1.5) 68 o/u
Cincinnati (-19) @ Miami (OH) 60.5 o/u (FD Only)
Tajae Sharpe – Mass
Rarely do I think a player is too cheap at these levels, but I honestly think if Sharpe had played 2 games instead of 1, he’d be higher priced. An elite WR that had 11 catches last week and faces off against an easier pass defense makes Sharpe a nice selection across the board this week.
Aaron Burbridge – Michigan State
I almost don’t want to list him here because his usage rate will be higher, but there’s enough money to go around each weekend I won’t hold back. He’s an elite WR with 100+ yards in each of the first 2 games, and he’s priced affordably. My only real worry is MSU goes up by a lot early and he’s not used much. Worth the risk at these price levels though.
Kenny Golladay – NIU
Really reasonably priced for a guy averaging 8.5 catches and 170+ yards per game through 2 weeks. My #1 concern is they are facing Ohio State, which has the ability to shut down Golladay if they want to with a double team. We’ll see. For some reason Kenny isn’t listed on FanDuel.
Sterling Shepard – Oklahoma
The consensus #1 WR on the board for both sites. While I understand because the matchup is amazing, he’s going to have to get you a TD + plenty of catches & yards to be worth blowing your budget on this WR.
Taywan Taylor – Western Kentucky
He’s the best WR they have. Dangerfield drops too many passes and has been injured.
Ricky Jones – Indiana
I like his price, the matchup, and his production was solid last week despite being a let down over his week 1 performance.
Mose Frazier – Memphis
Good matchup and he’s not super expensive. You hope he finds the endzone to provide you any upside value, but he has each of the last 2 weeks.
This is a great matchup against Georgia State. Oregon is really deep at WR and it’s impossible to pick which WR will get the most stats, so don’t worry too much about that. I would build some lineups around a few of them because none are really expensive. Just hope it doesn’t turn into a ground game too quickly.
Penny Hart – Georgia State
$3,700 DraftKings (good value)
$4,500 FanDuel (good value)
BLEW UP last week after only 1 catch in week 1. Oregon isn’t a superstar pass defense, plus Georgia State will need to be throwing all game. Hart is risky, but he’s near minimum price. Expect high usage rates.
Robert Davis – Georgia State
No TDs yet, so he’d really provide you some upside if he finds the endzone. If you’re looking for a cheap WR that has been consistent over the first 2 weeks, Davis is not a bad option. He faces Oregon, which should have Georgia State throwing all game.
Antwane Grant – Western Kentucky
Good value, espeically in 1pt PPR leagues and if Dangerfield is ruled out, might open the door for him just a little.
Tyler Higbee – Western Kentucky
$4,900 DraftKings (good value)
On FD where they still make you pick a TE he’s the #1 option, but on DK he’s under average salary and makes for a nice WR3/FLEX type start especially in the 1pt PPR format. So far, he’s been the most consistent threat for WKU in the passing game.
Memphis is a pretty solid pass defense, but I believe Bowling Green will make up for that with volume. Bowling Green has so many WRs it’s impossible to pick which one will go off so don’t sweat that too much. However, all except for Roger Lewis and Ronnie Moore are below average salary and could make for a decent sleeper WR/FLEX type option that has some upside potential.
Another one of these matchups that you can’t ignore, but the team has so many WRs it’s impossible to pick one. Christian Kirk has been the most consistent, but Speed Noil, Ricky Seals Jones and others are talented & have produced. The good news is none are really expensive so I’d build several lineups to mitigate your risk a bit, but this is a good matchup.
