FanDuel, DraftKings CFB DFS Picks: Daily Fantasy College Football Advice for 11/28/19 (Showdown)


We only have one game on Thursday night, and it’s a showdown rivalry between Ole Miss and Mississippi State. We're looking at a 58 over/under with Mississippi State favored by just two points. It'll be a fun game and there should be plenty of offense on each side.

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

Let's dive in!

FanDuel, DraftKings DFS Captain

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

John Rhys Plumlee - Ole Miss - DK $13,000, FD $16,500

Can you really go elsewhere at captain? Plumlee has been ridiculous since taking over as the starter and this match-up is a good one. This game is basically a toss-up with a 58 total and two defenses that don’t shut anyone down. Plumlee just put up 50 fantasy points against LSU, and he did so with 212 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He’s been over 25 fantasy points in six of the last eight games and this match-up with Mississippi State isn’t scary. He’s also been better through the air recently, throwing for 100+ yards in two straight games. Plumlee is easily my favorite captain on the slate.

Tommy Stevens - Mississippi State - DK $10,400, FD $13,000

Mississippi State is absolutely terrible against the pass, ranking 122nd in the nation. However, Tommy Stevens isn’t a good passer and it creates a weird dynamic for this showdown. I don’t think Stevens is very safe for this reason. If they struggle early, Garrett Schrader could slide in and have a ton of success. If Stevens does have success, he’ll be left in the game and he has a ton of upside. If I’m going to play Stevens, it's captain. I see him as boom or bust in this game.

 

FanDuel, DraftKings DFS Safe Plays

Kylin Hill - Mississippi State - DK $10,800, FD $14,000

Kylin Hill is the best player on Mississippi State and they’re going to lean on him a ton in this game. While Ole Miss is a lot worse against the pass, they’ll be set on running a ton here. Over just the last three games, he’s combined for 419 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. He’s capable through the air as well, and has as much upside as anyone in this game. Have him somewhere.

Scottie Phillips - Ole Miss - DK $6,200, FD $6,000

Probably the easiest play on this slate. Phillips is priced like he’s not playing, but he is. Phillips and Ealy will both get carries in this game, but Phillips is going to be the lead back. John Rhys Plumlee opens up this running game a ton and Phillips should get over 80 yards with ease. Plug him into every lineup at this price.

Elijah Moore - Ole Miss - DK $7,600, FD $12,500

Moore reeled in nine balls last week against LSU for 143 yards and a touchdown. He’s getting targets from both quarterbacks and his ceiling goes through the roof when Schrader is in the game. With Ole Miss so terrible against the pass, even Tommy Stevens should have success and he only throws to Moore 60-70% of the time.

 

FanDuel, DraftKings DFS Contrarian Plays

Garrett Schrader - Mississippi State - DK $7,800, FD $8,000

With Ole Miss being one of the worst teams in the entire nation against the pass, there’s a real chance Schrader ends up on the field here. If Stevens struggles, there’s no way they keep Schrader on the bench for long. He’s not going to be popular as the backup and I love the upside he brings to the table.
