Without further ado, Week 2 in college football.

QB – Maty Mauk, Missouri $7,200

Mauk threw for three touchdowns last week but was only able to contribute 195 total yards. Since Missouri takes on Toledo, expect Mauk and the Tigers’ offense to light up the scoreboard. Mauk’s price is surely to rise after this week, so add him to your team while you can afford him as your second quarterback.

QB – Travis Wilson, Utah $7,300

Last week, Wilson threw for 265 yards and one touchdown. Not a great week, but considering he only completed 13 passes and only threw the ball 18 times, Wilson is due for an even bigger game. The Utes were up big early last week, and with a possible high-scoring affair against Fresno State, Wilson will be one of the top options at quarterback this week.

RB – Derrick Henry, Alabama $6,200

Henry could be the most talented running back in the nation with the exception of Leonard Fournette, but he may be the number one running back this week in daily fantasy. He’s a backup though, so why would he have value this week? Alabama takes on FAU this week, so expect the backups to get a lot of playing time. Henry is a gold mine waiting to happen.

RB – Jojo Kemp, Kentucky $3,600

Who? You may be thinking that as you read his name. But his salary is just $3,600 and he is the feature back for the Wildcats. Last week, Braylon Heard took the spotlight but he may be unable to play due to injury this week. If Heard is out, Kemp is a starting running back who will receive a lot of touches. For his price, that is a bargain.

WR – Stefon Diggs, Maryland $5,300

Diggs is one of the top receivers in the country in terms of playmaking ability, and he will need to show that this week if the Terrapins are going to take down USF. Diggs is the focal point of the Terps offense after C.J. Brown, and for $5,300 that is well worth the price. Diggs is expected to have a Tavon Austin role this season, so expect him to get the touches. With DraftKings’ scoring being PPR, Diggs will be a targeted player.

WR – Keevan Lucas, Tulsa $5,800

Lucas was the most impressive player in college football last week, as he caught 13 passes for 233 yards and three touchdowns. Can he repeat that? Chances are slim as Tulsa faces Oklahoma, but for Tulsa to even have a chance he will need to step up and be the focal point. For his price of just $5,800, it’s worth a gamble.

WR – Kenneth Scott, Utah $4,200

Last week, Scott caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in only a half of play. Utah will not be so lucky again this week as they face a high-powered Fresno State offense. Expect another shootout out west and Scott will be a beneficiary.

TE – Jon Davis, Illinois $3,900

After a three-catch, 24-yard and a touchdown performance, Davis will be one of the sought-after players at the tight end position. This week he takes on Western Kentucky, who just scored a ton of points last week. This game has the makings of a barn-burner, so having a tight end in that game is advised.

FLEX – Geno Lewis, Penn State $6,300

Last week against UCF, Lewis finished with eight catches for 173 yards and a touchdown. Lewis was sophomore quarterback Christian Hackenberg’s top target and will continue to be. Penn State has a matchup against Akron this weekend and Lewis will look to duplicate his production from last week. At $6,300 that is an excellent value.
