With our NCAA lineup locked in for the weekend, here is who we are rolling with on DraftStreet (I know they don’t sponsor you, but they are the best in NCAA FB, so it’s what we play). Hopefully this can give you guys an idea of what teams we like and big time players on each team.
QB1: Brett Hundley: Hundley is facing off against Houston this weekend which is every fantasy player’s dream. Houston has zero defense as seen by giving up 86 total points to the likes of Texas State and Louisiana Tech this season. Hundley has over 500 yards through the air and over 100 yards on the ground in two games and he shouldn’t let up against this terrible Cougars defense. We like UCLA to win big.
QB2: Johnny Manziel: If anyone watched the Texas A&M game last weekend you saw an impressive young QB in Manziel. His numbers weren’t insane, but they were very solid in the loss to Florida. He had 173 yards passing while rushing 17 times for 60 yards and one TD. This weekend against SMU we expect the offense to put up bigger numbers and we think it starts with Manziel. SMU gave up 52 points to Baylor in week 1 and we see that as a pretty comparable matchup. TAMU should win easily
RB1: Fitzgerald Toussaint: This Michigan running back has done nothing impressive this season as he was suspended for week 1 and just didn’t put up anything special last week against Air Force. We really like him to breakout again this weekend against UMass for a few reasons. For one, does anyone really expect Denard Robinson to carry a heavy load against a team Michigan should handle easily? This seems like one of those games were Coach Hoke will try to establish his running game through Fitz and not Denard. We also like Fitz this weekend because of his super cheap price on DraftStreet. Another easy win for the Wolverines.
RB2: Le”veon Bell: Bell IS the Michigan State offense and in a game of this caliber you expect the big name players to step up. We like MSU to win and we like them not because of their passing game. Maxwell has struggled mightily this season and anytime they are in the red zone we expect a heavy dose of Bell. MSU should win this one, although we wouldn’t give Notre Dame points as we see it to be a close victory.
RB3: Silas Redd: Redd hasn’t played like many expected him to, but it’s tough to expect big numbers early from a guy who is new to the team. He was a cheap play and will be in a big time game against Syracuse. We took the chance. We really think Stanford could pull off the upset because they are at home, but we just think the offensive talent of USC is too much.
RB4: John White: White is the guy to have on Utah this week as they face off against BYU in a big time rivalry. We looked and saw White had impressive numbers (174 yards 3 TDs) and those are the kinds of things we like to see when we pick our lineup. Also, he is pretty cheap with a price of under 9K. White should lead Utah to a victory after a tough loss to Utah State.
WR1: Allen Robinson: Robinson will be the #1 guy with the other starting WR for the Nittany Lions leaving the team this week. Robinson has 19 catches on the year and against a team like Navy, we like Penn State to actually put up some offensive numbers. Penn State wins by 7-10 points as Navy is just not good right now.
WR2: Michael Campanaro: Campanaro is one of Wake’s best WRs and honestly looking back at this pick I’m pretty sure it was our last addition to the lineup. We really liked the lineup before hand and didn’t want to change it so we went with him. He does have good numbers on the year (22 catches for 260 yards) and we think the FSU defense is a little overrated especially now with Jenkins, FSU’s best pass rusher, out for the season. Wake gets 28 points or so depending on when you bet, and we think they lose by 20-24.
WR3: Marquise Lee: Lee is a top WR talent in this year’s draft and he should play like it in the game against Stanford. The combination of Lee and Woods is easily the best combo of WRs in college right now, and it’ll be impossible to double both. Barkley will get the ball to Lee or Woods in the red zone, and worst-case scenario we are looking at an 8 catch 120 yards game out of Lee. Those are solid floor numbers for a WR.
TE: Jordan Reed: Reed has good numbers and we wanted a cheap TE that would get solid playing time. Reed should be good for 3-4 catches and 35 yards. Factor in the possibility of a TD and those are great numbers for a guy at 4.6K. Florida wins this one and extends their win streak over UT to 8 games.
