Without further ado, here are your values on DraftKings for Week 13 in college football. In addition, our lineups are posted as well.
This week, the column will be in cheat sheet form. Detailing a few cheap plays at each position and their matchup. With DraftKings separating the early and late slate contests more often, we will have two lineups for you at the end of the post, one for each slate. Good luck.
Justin Holman, UCF $5,700
– Faces SMU, who is 125th in the country in allowing passing yards.
– SMU has given up 25 passing touchdowns in just nine games, the second-worst rate in college football.
– Holman has seven passing touchdowns in his last three games, and has averaged over 35 passing attempts in those three contests.
– SMU is allowing over nine yards per pass attempt, so if Holman keeps pace, he will throw for at least 315 yards.
– With SMU allowing just under three touchdown passes a game, 300 yards and three touchdowns is a realistic expectation for Holman. At just $5,700, that is value at the quarterback position.
Chandler Whitmer, UCONN $4,700
– Faces Cincinnati, who is 118th in the country in passing yards against.
– Cincinnati has allowed 19 passing touchdowns in nine games this season, which includes a game against SMU where no passing touchdowns were allowed. That is an anomaly, as SMU is among the worst teams in the country.
– Whitmer has eight touchdowns in the last three games, including two on the ground.
– At just $4,700, Whitmer is cheaper than 63 quarterbacks on DraftKings this weekend. That gives you a vast amount of cap space for the rest of your team.
Joey Iosefa, Hawaii $6,900
– Hawaii faces UNLV this weekend, who have allowed 31 rushing touchdowns in 11 games this season.
– UNLV is allowing over 278 yards per game on the ground, third-most in the NCAA.
– Iosefa is the lead back for Hawaii, carrying the ball 45 times in the last two games.
– Hawaii’s backup running back, Steven Lakalaka was injured in the last game, so Iosefa is likely to see the lion’s share of the carries.
Don Jackson, Nevada $5,900
– Jackson has 48 carries and four touchdowns in the last two games.
– Faces Fresno State, who is 113th in the country in allowing rushing yards per game.
– Fresno State has allowed 18 rushing touchdowns in 10 games this season.
– Per @Sir_Roflcopter, an avid fan and analyst of Fresno State football, “inconsistent gap discipline” has doomed the Fresno State rush defense at times, leading to large gains for opposing backs. This bodes well for Jackson this weekend, as he is the workhorse for Nevada.
Breshad Perriman, UCF $4,600
– A perfect stack complement to Holman, as UCF’s top receiver.
– Perriman has caught a touchdown in all but three games this season, and has under 52 yards just twice.
– SMU has allowed almost three touchdowns per game through the air, and Perriman has six of the 16 touchdowns for UCF this season.
– At just $4,600, Perriman is a solid choice for a third WR slot, and gives plenty of cap flexibility for the rest of your lineup.
Nelson Spruce, Colorado $6,500
– It seems like a trap, but Spruce is still one of the most productive wide receivers in college football.
– Colorado may be without their starting quarterback, but will likely be throwing all game long, trying to play catch up with Oregon.
– Oregon ranks 123rd in the country in terms of allowing passing yards, and even if Spruce does not score, his ability to catch a high volume of passes (99 catches in 10 games) will give him a chance to reach value on DraftKings this weekend.
– Spruce has less than 22 fantasy points just twice this season, which gives him an incredibly high floor against a poor pass defense.
