Johnny G’s 2015 Week 5 DraftKings College Football Fantasy Picks 10-1-15 to 10-3-15

Another week is here and so are Johnny G’s CFB DraftKings lineups!  I want to talk briefly about the importance of diversification in your lineups. I would prefer to play 5 $1 games as opposed to 1 $5 game.

Last week I had some 49th, 53rd, and other close calls to finishing in the money on some 50/50 fantasy plays that were out of 100 competitors.   You never know in such a small sample which players will be picked, so it helps to spread it out some in order to best hedge your bets.  When you get down to the 50, 20, and 10 entry fields the variances are even greater!

DraftKings Thursday / Friday Week 5 Lineup – 10-1-15

PositionNameTeamSalaryStats / Notes
QBPaxton LynchMEM @USF9100Paxton is a must start this week. Until Memphis can be slowed down and the Thurs / Friday schedule, you almost have to have him or lose out big.
QBHayden MooreMIA@ CIN7200Risky play here, but I do not trust any of the other QB's this week.
RBTion GreenMIA@ CIN4400Could get into the endzone on his 10 - 15 touches this week against an average Hurricanes team.
RBArkeel NewsomeCONN @BYU4900This game scares me, but Uconn might be able to hang in there. The over under is low, so I think this could be a 20-17 game. Either way, have to find value with the expensive QB's.
WRDevon BlackmonCONN@ BYU4000With BYU losing the starting QB, not sure about who the real #1 will be. Blackmon is due for another good game though.
WRMose FrazierMEM @USF6500Memphis should score some points and Frazier should find his way into the end zone.
WRShaq WashingtonMIA@ CIN6300Quietly becoming a very good WR, Shaq's value will rise again with a good week against the U.
FLEXTrayone GrayMIA @CIN3600He could hop in the end zone, or get nothing, but at 3600 he is worth the risk.
FLEXD'Ernest JohnsonMEM@ USF3800He could get some points this week, but USF will be behind so it should be interesting to see how that changes the game plan.

DraftKings CFB 10-3-15 Early Games – 12pm Sat.

PositionNameTeamSalaryStats / Notes
QBTrevone BoykinUT@ TCU9200Huge player here. Combo him with Doctson for a huge risk/reward week. However, I do not think there is much risk involved with him.
QBSkyler HowardWV @OU6500A great sleeper pick, WVU can score points and at $6500 he could score as many points has the big names.
RBKe'aun KinnerKU @ISU4900The real only decent fantasy player on the Jayhawks, they play an very average ISU team.
RBZack LangerHOU@ TLSA6100He has averaged 28 carries a game!
WRJosh DoctsonUT@ TCU7600A true star. NFL potential. They should score 50 points this week… again…
WRShelton GibsonWV @OU4600Same as the QB, look to combo this duo. #1 WR potential.
WRBrandon ReillyNEB @IL3700Averages over 5 catches and 80 yards a game. At 3700 why not right!
FLEXChance AllenHOU @TLSA3700A chance to score in what should be a high scoring affair.
FLEXKJ MayeMinnesota3700Very solid player on an below average offense, he tends to find the endzone.

DraftKings CFB 10-3-15 Late Games 7PM Lineup

PositionNameTeamSalaryStats / Notes
QBBrandon AllenARK @TENN6300At 6300 he has a huge upside. There are many average QB in this late game DraftKings contest, so I think he is a good play.
QBChad KellyMISS @UF6900Kelly is coming off a bad week, but overall he is still a good play.
RBRoyce FreemanORE @UC8100A good RB play with Oregon coming off a terrible loss. With just average QB play, they should establish the run early and often.
RBJeremy McNicholsHAW@ BSU8400Pure stud. Even if he does not play the whole game.
WRJamire JordanFRES @SDSU4200An all around star on a terrible team.
WRDrew MorganARK @TENN4700Huge game last week could have been his coming out party. If he does it again he wont be 4700 any more.
WREthan WolfARK@ TENN3500Needed to save some money here, Wolf is a decent play at 3500.
FLEXAntonio CallawayMISS@ UF3800Callaway has the potential to hit some big plays.
FLEXJasen Oden Jr.CSU @UTST4000Not many has heard of him, but I have. So get him in your lineup this week.

Hopefully this is the best DraftKings college football lineup of the week!  Or at least place in some 50/50 tournaments.

Stay tuned for further NCAA DK fantasy picks from Johnny G! College Fantasy Football is probably the most fun to play.
