DraftKings CFB DFS Picks - Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 10/27

Let's jump right into it, shall we? As has been the case since week three, there's a 10 game main slate this Saturday on DraftKings, with kickoff (and slate lock) at noon eastern. If I'm being honest, it's not the prettiest slate of games, but you play with the cards you're dealt. There's one gem of a game (which I'll touch on more below) and then a good chunk of what I'd consider "mid-tier" in terms of DFS attractiveness.

Before player selections, let’s take a look at the slate through the Vegas lens. This can be of help when deciphering plus-value and honing in on games to stack. The USF-Houston matchup this weekend is head-and-shoulders above the rest of the nine games on this slate. The total for that game is a massive 75, and the spread (Houston -7.5) is pretty desirable as well. The game projects to be a track meet, and I highly suggest getting exposure there in cash games and tournaments. In terms of totals (or over/under lines), the Kansas State – Oklahoma game projects for a lot of points (64), but it also projects to be really damn lopsided (OU favored by 24.5.) Due to that, it isn’t really a game I’d suggest stacking, but there are a few spots you can find value there. The game that has a chance to be the second best game stack of the day is the Kentucky – Mizzou matchup, with an over/under of 56.5 and a spread of only 7.5.

In this article, I will be providing you with my daily fantasy college football lineup picks for DraftKings on 10/27/18. The lineup picks will range from some of the elite players to mid-priced options and value plays. You can also read more DFS advice and lineup picks for sites like FanDuel, and other sports too.

DraftKings DFS Quarterbacks

D’Eriq King – QB, vs USF ($10,200)

Yes, it’s a steep price to pay, but King has been worth every penny this season. He’s coming off a 400+ yard, four touchdown game that resulted in 40+ DraftKings points. Speaking of 40+ points, King has been good for that and then some with the exception of a pair of complete blowout wins. Seeing as this game projects to be very high scoring and pretty tight contest, we could get a true ceiling game from King here. USF is very vulnerable through the air, and adding to King’s allure is that he’s fleet of foot as well. In fact, he’s scored a rushing touchdown in every game this season. He’s a strong option on Saturday in any format.

Nate Stanley – QB, at Penn State ($5,200)

Relative to the points he’s capable of putting on the board, Stanley is underpriced here. He’s had a couple low DFS point totals this season, but those were mainly due to game script – whether it was a run-heavy script or the Hawkeyes getting out to big leads. In three of the past four weeks, Stanley has thrown for 300+ yards. This game has a solid point total (51) and with the visiting Hawkeyes projected as underdogs, this sets up pretty favorably for Stanley. Penn State has allowed nearly 275 yards through the air per game this season, too. He has a chance to absolutely smash value on Saturday.


DraftKings DFS Running Backs

Eno Benjamin – RB, at USC ($6,800)

Benjamin doesn’t have the easiest matchup going up against USC, but the desirable price, his high volume of carries and big role of this offense help offset that. He’s been a beast for this offense, and even in the rare game or two where he’s struggled to get it going on the ground, he’s been active in the passing game out of the backfield.

David Montgomery – RB, vs Texas Tech ($7,200)

Like Eno Benjamin, Montgomery is a workhorse for this Cyclone offense. He’s racked up no less than 21 carries in the past four weeks, and had a whopping 29 last week against West Virginia in a 30-14 win. This doesn’t project as the easiest of matchups, but the relatively attractive game total and Montgomery’s strong points floor outweigh that.


DraftKings DFS Wide Receivers

Isiaiah Zuber – WR, at Oklahoma ($5,900)

Certainly too risky for cash play, but Zuber is a very intriguing, low-cost tournament option. This game projects to be a bit of a blowout – the Sooners are favored by more than three touchdowns – which means the Wildcats are likely to be airing it out. The game script projects well for the Kansas State receivers, and Zuber is a guy whose play has been trending in the right direction. He’s also had a handful of impressive totals this season, mainly in games where the Wildcats found themselves down a few scores.

Marquez Stevenson – WR, vs USF ($7,600)

Considering his incredible production this season, the fact that he’s King’s favorite target, and the fantastic game environment for Saturday – Stevenson is underpriced. He’s a strong value with a solid floor and his ceiling is super high. He and quarterback D’Eriq King combine as my favorite QB-WR stack this Saturday. He’s coming off a monster 8 catch, 141 yard performance and has hauled in six catches or more in four of the last five weeks.
