Johnny G is back for week 6 of the FanDuel college football picks of the week. We have our small slate of games for the Thursday – Friday contests and our typical Saturday early and late games. There have been some real patterns showing up and it is amazing what conference play does to guys stats.
We strive to give you advice to compile the best lineups possible each and every week. Thank you to all the followers out there!
FanDuel Week 6 TH-FR 10-8-15 College Football Lineup
Last week started out great with the Thursday and Friday predictions cashing in all of my 50/50 contests. Let’s keep the momentum going.
For this week I think Ward is a must start at QB. If you want to go with Kessler you can, but you will probably want to pick JuJu Smith, and that would leave you with all your eggs in one basket. It’s up to you. I also am big on the NC State TE. I think he is worth the extra salary there. Also, remember that WR catches are only worth 0.5 points in FanDuel as opposed to 1 point in DraftKings.
|QB||Greg Ward Jr||Houston||9800||A true dual threat he has the highest potential and the lowest floor of the QB's this week. I expect 30 fantasy points.|
|Rb||Matt Dayes||NC State||5600||With Thornton getting kicked off the team Dayes should have 20 - 25 carries to get his grove on and in the endzone.|
|Rb||Ito Smith||S Miss||5300||A RB with great hands, even if he does not score he can put up good numbers catching the ball. 60 yds rush 1 TD 40 yards rec.|
|Wr||JuJu Smith||USC||8300||Until he proves otherwise, he is a must start in this limited game format. I expect over 100 yards and a TD, at least.|
|Wr||Courtland Sutton||SMU||5500||Should be a high scoring contest where SMU will need some points to hang with UH.|
|Wr||Steven Dunbar||Houston||6100||I think he is the best Houston WR and should be in the spotlight this week against SMU.|
|Te||Jaylen Samuels||NC State||4200||By FAR the best TE and worth the premium here. Book him.|
FanDuel Lineup Week 6 10-10-15 12pm Early Games
Last week’s early game were a split with my Skylar Howard led teams being held down by his awful performance. Lesson learned: Do not gamble on a low price QB when there are a half dozen that WILL have solid games. My Seth Russell led squads fared well. Onto this week, I like the value of Mahomes with a hungry Texas Tech team playing ISU. It also allowed me to get studs Chubb, Coleman, and Sharpe in the lineup.
|QB||Patrick Mahomes||Tx Tech||8600||He is over 1000 cheaper than Russell, or else I would not have picked him. Tech needs a victory and Iowa St is about the be on the wrong end of a 70 point game.|
|Rb||Nick Chubb||Georgia||8500||A 100 yard machine, I love the guy in 50/50 and double-up contests. His value is lower this week than some others, so I like him here.|
|Rb||Justin Stockton||Tx Tech||5000||A great value back that will catch a few and run some as well. Also, if the game gets out of hand he might get some extra carries.|
|Wr||Tajae Sharpe||Umass||6800||The guy is average 11 catches… A GAME! Yes, he has not scored much but they are playing Bowling Green and their defense.|
|Wr||Corey Coleman||Baylor||8600||Can he keep getting 3 TD a game, no but it hedges the strategy of not picking Russell… see I can think a little…|
|Wr||Marken Michel||Umass||5000||I know! I picked 2 WR from the same team. BUT the matchup is favorable and he is the best value WR at 5000. The game WILL be high scoring.|
|Te||Henry Coble||Iowa||2400||There is no good lock at TE so save your money. He has a handful of catches over the past few games. That pattern works for me at 2400.|
