Without further ado, here are your values on DraftKings for Week 14 in college football. In addition, our lineups are posted as well.

Value Plays

Quarterback

Treon Harris, Florida $4,800

  • Faces Florida State, who is 71st in pass defense.
  • Harris is a running quarterback who is averaging 20 fantasy points per game in the last three weeks.
  • He has a low floor, but if you’re looking for a value play at quarterback, a price of $4,800 is hard to beat.
  • The ‘Noles have had issues with quarterbacks with running ability this season, allowing Deshaun Watson, Tyler Murphy, and Everett Golson to score touchdowns through the air and on the ground.
  • At $4,800, Harris only needs to score one touchdown and rush for around 60 yards to reach value, making him a play in GPP games.

Jacoby Brissett, NC State $5,200

  • Faces North Carolina, who is 121st in the country in pass defense.
  • The Tar Heels have allowed 26 passing touchdowns in 11 games this season, which is the seventh-highest rate in the nation.
  • Brissett has thrown for at least one touchdown in all but one game this season, and that came at the expense of Clemson, who didn’t allow Brissett enough time to think, let alone accrue fantasy points.
  • At $5,200, two touchdown passes would bring him to value, and UNC averages more than two allowed per contest this season.

Running Back

Don Jackson, Nevada $5,100

  • Jackson was a value play last week, and totaled 15.5 fantasy points, but this week his matchup is better and his price is lower.
  • Nevada faces UNLV, who has the third-worst rushing defense in the NCAA, allowing over 284 yards per game.
  • UNLV has allowed 34 rushing touchdowns in 12 games, giving Jackson one of the best matchups on DraftKings.
  • Jackson has caught four passes in the last two games, giving him added value in a PPR scoring format.

Rushel Shell, West Virginia $4,500

  • Faces Iowa State, who is 121st in the country in allowing rushing yards this season.
  • Iowa State has allowed 33 rushing touchdowns, and is giving up over three rushing touchdowns per contest.
  • Shell seems to be back as the starting back for the Mountaineers, and with Clint Trickett questionable, WVU may lean on the run more often, giving Shell more value.
  • Shell is a GPP play only, because West Virginia’s backfield seems to change without warning.

Wide Receiver

Isiah Myers, Washington State $5,900

  • With Luke Falk at the helm, Wazzu’s pass offense is still thriving. Myers is a beneficiary.
  • He has caught a touchdown in each of his last four games, and has 14 catches in his last two contests combined.
  • Faces Washington, who has allowed 22 passing touchdowns so far this season.
  • Myers is behind Mayle on the depth chart at Wazzu, but he has similar value at his price. He is a cheap piece of a prolific pass offense, and is a smart play in GPP and cash games.

Jordan Leslie, BYU $4,200

  • Faces California this weekend, who has allowed the most passing touchdowns (37) in the country this year.
  • Leslie is the second wide receiver on the Cougars, but with the Bears giving up over three touchdowns per game through the air, Leslie could catch at least one, seeing as he has two touchdowns in his last three games.
  • Leslie has 46 fantasy points in his last three games, meaning if he sustains his current production he will reach value.
  • Leslie has less than 10 fantasy points just three times this season, giving him a high floor for a cheap play.
  • With the best possible matchup, the likelihood of Leslie reaching value is high, which makes him a play in GPP and cash games if you punt wide receiver.
