This game is likely to be pretty close, so we want to targets both sides of the ball here.

FanDuel, DraftKings DFS Captain

All Captain options are safe plays and belong in FLEX if you can't fit them as captain.

Warren Jackson - Colorado State - DK $11,400, FD $15,000

Warren Jackson is the best player on the field in this game and he’s one of the best wide receivers in the entire nation. The six-foot-six Jackson has been over 100 yards in five of the last six games and Patrick O’Brien makes it a point to get him the ball. Jackson makes O’Brien a competent quarterback and he’s going to be needed in a tough match-up with Wyoming. Assuming CSU is playing from behind, they’ll be throwing the ball a ton and I wouldn’t be surprised if Jackson reels in double-digit balls. He’ll be my most popular captain on this slate as I suspect CSU is going to force the ball to him in a tough match-up.

Xazavian Valladay - Wyoming - DK $10,600, FD $14,000

Valladay didn’t practice this week, but head coach Craig Bohl said he should be good to go against Colorado State. On the off chance Valladay does sit, Brett Benton would be in play. Valladay is the best player on Wyoming and the offense runs solely through him. Through the last four weeks, Valladay has seen 26+ touches in every game and he’s been over 20 fantasy points in three of those games. With Wyoming a seven-point favorite, Valladay will likely be the most popular captain and I can’t argue with it.


FanDuel, DraftKings DFS Safe Plays

Patrick O'Brien - Colorado State - DK $11,200, FD $13,000

O’Brien has been over 300 yards in three of the last four games and it has a lot to do with Colorado State often playing from behind. They’re seven-point underdogs in this game and facing off with an average Wyoming secondary. O’Brien also has Warren Jackson, who is one of the best safety blankets in all of college football. He can just throw the ball up to Jackson when things get tough and it’s what he does quite often. O’Brien is a safe bet, but I don’t think you need to play him at captain.

Tyler Vander Waal - Wyoming - DK $9,600, FD $12,000

Truth be told, Tyler Vander Waal is not a very good quarterback. This offense runs through Xazavian Halladay and rightfully so. Still, the Colorado State defense isn’t very good and quarterbacks are typically safe on showdowns. You don’t have to play Vander Waal, but he’s an extremely safe bet in all formats.

Christian Hunter - Colorado State - DK $2,400, FD $7,000

With Marvin Kinsey Jr. suspended, Christian Hunter and Marcus McElroy are splitting time and Hunter got more carries last game. He’s also cheaper, and a better running back than McElroy. Wyoming is slightly worse against the run and Hunter isn’t going to be popular. You typically don’t want to target the underdog running back, but CSU will run the ball no matter what the score is.


DraftKings DFS Contrarian Plays

Josh Harshman - Wyoming - DK $5,000, FD $8,000

Harshman has six catches in each of the last two games, so Tyler Vander Waal is obviously quite comfortable throwing the ball to the tight end. As a not very good thrower, it makes sense to target the guy closest to you. Harshman is actually an extremely good tight end and I could see him making a lot of noise at the next level. If he scores a touchdown, you’ll need Josh Harshman in all formats.

Dante Wright - Colorado State - DK $10,800, FD $12,000

Dante Wright is clearly the number two receiver for the CSU Rams, but he’s also an insane playmaker. They get him involved on the ground and gets 5-6 catches in every game. Wyoming is an average defense and they’re not going to shut down Dante Wright. If you think CSU wins this game, grab O’Brien and his top two pass catchers and pair them with Valladay and Hunter.
