College Football DFS DraftKings Plays for Week 8
Jonathan Taylor, RB, Wisconsin ($9,700)
Jonathan Taylor may not have eye popping numbers throughout his game log, but he is the model of consistency at the running back position. Every game this season Taylor has hit or exceeded the 100 rushing yards while averaging 6.6 yards per carry through every game this season and has had 2 200-yard games with 3 TD performances. This week he gets to attack a weak defense in Illinois who are giving up 199 rushing yards. Taylor should have no problem running all over this defense for a big day.
Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma ($8,400)
Mr. Hollywood is on a 3-game streak of 33Dkp or more games and 2 straight with multiple TD. Now this week Oklahoma has a tough matchup with a top unit defense in TCU making any receivers from Oklahoma a gpp play. Brown is one of the main receivers on this team with 33 receptions for the year and the ability to rip one off for a big gain and score making him a big play receiver. This week is a tough match up, but I think he will be just fine and still have a big game.
Albert Okwuegbunam, WR, Missouri ($5,100)
This week we know Top receiver E. Hall will miss this week contest due to personal reasons opening some good value at the wide receiver position for Missouri. If you are in our DFS Karma Slack chat then you know I was high on Albert and K Knox with Hall set to miss last week. Knox reworded us with a 15.7dk 1 td performance. This week we can expect the field to target Knox more since he is not only cheaper but also coming off of a good game. I want to have less exposure to Knox than the field in gpp and more of Albert in hopes he breaks out this week and finds the end zone for 1 or 2 TD.
Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State ($8,900)
Last week was McSorley worst week of the year completing 19 passes on 32 attempts. As a result, we get him this week at cheapest price of the season for 8900. This week McSorley gets a week IND defense that can be attacked in the air (227.6) or on the ground (157.7) making this a great bounce back matchup for a duel threat Qb like McSorley. Looking at McSorley game logs he has flip flop week after week with 30+ dkp and if the pattern is to continue then this week we could see another 30+ dkp game.
Tony Pollard, RB, Memphis ($4,500)
Surprise, once again Pollard is still underpriced and has found his way into our Low tier section. After coming off a huge 19.4dkp game DK has only priced him up to 4500 this week and we still believe that is too low for the production he is giving us. Pollard is on a streak of double digit Dkp and his role in this offense is one we can use this week against a poor passing defense and as a pivot off of the more expensive D. Henderson. Pollard should see at least 4 receptions and can possibly vulture another TD away from Henderson this week. My Favorite Gpp stack this week on DK is a White, Pollard, Coxie stack that will fade the more popular D. Henderson and Focus on the passing game of the Memphis Tigers.
