College football season has arrived. As I sit here, doing some research, I thought I’d provide you with the insight that I’ve come up with for the games on Thursday. Stay tuned right here for additional thoughts, leans, and plays for all of your NCAA Football Daily Fantasy needs this weekend!
Indiana goes up against Indiana State which should mean cashhhhh money for their offense. The depth chart is out, but no QB confirmed.. Looks like Tevin Coleman is starting RB while the WRs go like this: Hughes/Latimore/Wynn. The TE will be Bolser. Their Prices:
I’m definitely using Coleman as he’s the starting and taking over for Houston who was there last year which means he has been great so far. I’m sure a WR will be great in this one, but who will it be? Hughes and Wynn are the top 2 guys, but they run 3 wide sets so all 3 listed could get value. I’d go with Wynn as he’s the cheapest and 2nd overall it seems like.
Wake Forest plays Presbyterian and that should be another one to find some guys considering WFU isn’t THAT bad.. Tanner Price is the QB while Campanaro is his stud WR. If you have the money then you might wanna just dish it out for him in this one. He had 5 games of 8+ catches last season with 3 in double digits and his high was 16. Their offense supposedly will be 25 ish passes per game and they want to run more. The article I’m reading says Harris will be the starter at RB, but I’d do more research before plugging him in.
The Trojans play against Hawaii way past my bed time and they’ve already come out and said they will play both QBs, so that’s definitely a situation to avoid. Marquise Lee is max salary and well worth it. If he doesn’t end the game with 12-15 catches I’d be very surprised. He’s a must play as far as I’m concerned and I know RP says the same thing. Nelson Agholor will be another guy on our radar as he should start opposite side of Lee. Redd, Madden, and Davis are all considered co starters right now. Redd has been hurt, so definitely stay away from him as I’m guessing he sits.
With that Agholor price I REALLY wanna send him out there as Kiffin’s depth chart has him starting.. Depends on the other options really..
UConn plays Towson and there’s one very interesting play here. Lyle McCombs averaged over 20 carries a game and about 2 catches as well. He ran for 80 yards and a TD against UMass in the opener last year, so it’ll be interesting to see if he gets better than his 3.5 yards per carry last season. Chandler Whitmer is starting at QB and McQuillian is the TE while the two WRs are Geremy Davis and Shakim Phillips. I might roll out McQuillian because he’s 2500 and goes up against the cupcake.
The Gamecocks and Tar Heels play in the most exciting game of the night and I’m thinking high scoring. Immediately I’m looking at Brynn Renner and even Connor Shaw. Let’s start with UNC though.. Ebron should be starting at TE again although the depth chart says OR.. Romar Morris is the starting RB while the 3 WRs are Singleton, Tapley, and Davis.
The Gamecocks showed some offensive talent towards the end of last season with Shaw having some nice games. He’s defintely one to consider Thursday as UNC isn’t known for its defense. Mike Davis the Sophomore starts at RB and the WRs are Shaq Roland, Nick Jones, and Damiere Byrd. Rory Anderson is the starting TE. The 3 of them had 31 combined receptions in 2012, so who knows what to expect from them.
For now that’s all I can handle, so here is what my actual lineup will look like with the possibility of me rolling out multiple ones due to so many cheap plays:
|QB||Bryn Renner||UNC@USC||$6,750||0.0||swap out|
|QB||Connor Shaw||UNC@USC||$5,750||0.0||swap out|
|RB||Tevin Coleman||INST@UI||$2,500||0.0||swap out|
|RB||Mike Davis||UNC@USC||$5,000||0.0||swap out|
|WR||Nelson Agholor||USC@HAW||$2,500||0.0||swap out|
|WR||M. Campanaro||PRES@WF||$8,000||0.0||swap out|
|TE||Sean McQuillan||TOWS@CONN||$2,500||0.0||swap out|
|FLEX||Donte Moncrief||MISS@VAND||$6,500||0.0||swap out|
