Targets for the Early Week 11 College Football Contests on FanDuel
We have an absolutely loaded 15 game early college football slate on FanDuel this week, with some top 10 teams, explosive offenses and games with huge playoff implications. Here is a look at the full slate, and the highest team totals from Vegas this week.
|Notre Dame||Wake Forest||39|
|Texas Tech||Kansas State||39|
|Oklahoma State||Iowa State||37|
FanDuel College Football Week 11 Quarterbacks
FanDuel Salary – $10,400
Given the matchup and Boykin’s consistency this season, I don’t see how you could justify paying up for another player over $9,000 this week. Boykin hasn’t scored under 37 FanDuel points since week 1, and has averaged over 42 points per game over that stretch. Kansas has the nation’s worst pass defense and 7th worst run defense. Look for a big bounce back week and statement win from the Horned Frogs this week.
FanDuel Salary – $6,200
Hubener has been great in these uptempo high scoring games this season. He had a strong showing against Baylor last week with 304 yards and 3 total touchdowns, and put up 38 FanDuel points against TCU in week 7. Texas Tech’s defense is even softer than those two, and has been susceptible to running quarterbacks, giving up 80+ yards and multi-touchdown games to both Seth Russell and JW Walsh, and even giving up 9 FD points to Skyler Howard on the ground last week. At $6,200, he isn’t the lock Boykin is, but could get you 5x+ value this week, which Boykin won’t do, and will save you $4,000+ in the process.
FanDuel College Football Week 11 Running Backs
FanDuel Salary – $6,200
Green has been matchup dependent this season, having huge GPP games only against the weakest run defenses on the TCU schedule. Kansas is the weakest run defense TCU will face this season, so expect 22-25 carries for 150+ yards and 2-3 touchdowns in week 11.
FanDuel Salary – $5,500
Yearby had an undeniably tough run schedule in the month of October, and struggled to top 3x value during that stretch. However, this week he faces a North Carolina defense that has greatly improved their pass defense, but has really struggled against the run. The Tar Heels are 13th nationally in pass defense, and 111th against the run. This should translate into Yearby’s biggest week of the season, and make him one of, if not the, top value RB play of the week.
FanDuel Salary – $5,000
Gerald Holmes has looked like the Spartans best RB for more than a month, but last week was he finally got a shot at carrying the load and didn’t disappoint running for 117 yards and a touchdown against Nebraska. This week he faces the nation’s 75th ranked run defense in Maryland and will once again spearhead the MSU running game behind a finally healthy offensive line. At just $5,000, Holmes looks like another solid value play at RB in week 11.
FanDuel College Football Week 11 Wide Receivers
FanDuel Salary – $7,600
Washington has gone over 100 yards receiving in 4 of his last 5 games, averaging 28.5 PPG over that stretch, and has made it look easy… 5 of his last 9 receptions have been touchdowns, and this week he faces a Iowa State defense that is 113th nationally in pass defense and 103rd in yards per completion. At this point he has to be in a portion of your lineups until this epic run he is on comes to an end… which doesn’t seem likely this week.
FanDuel Salary – $7,400
Texas Tech’s air raid faces a Kansas State defense that is giving up over 300 YPG this season, and Grant remains the only constant in this offense. TT seems to shuffle in a random group of new receivers around Grant every play, so if you want to take advantage of this matchup you really only have two options and that is Mahomes and Grant. With two 33+ performances in the last 5 weeks, I’m willing to take a shot on Grant here.
FanDuel Salary – $5,200
If Doctson is out… Turpin is the most likely TCU receiver to take over as their go-to guy. That was the case last week, and I would expect it to be again here. They like Listenbee as a weapon to stretch the field, but Patterson has made it clear that they don’t view him as a possession receiver and can’t target him too often. That leaves Turpin and his 76%+ catch rate as the most likely candidate to benefit from a higher volume of targets without Doctson this week. The last time he was targeted heavily downfield he went for 6/148/4.
FanDuel College Football Week 11 Tight Ends
FanDuel Salary – $3,400
I like Jaylen Samuels this week, but we CFB junkies have a hard time paying $5,000+ at the tight end position, so if you are looking for a cheaper option, I think Perkins is your best bet. The Arizona State pass defense has been horrible this season, while the run defense has been one of the best in the nation. This should force Washington to throw a little more this week, and Perkins is the one tight end on this board(outside of Samuels) that is targeted on over 17% of his team’s passes.
