College Fantasy Football: Week 9 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

Posted on October 23, 2014 by Joe Arpasi and Ryan Moss

Alright season-long fantasy managers, it's time to set those weekly lineups!  Below are some picks to chew on from CFG Staffers Ryan Moss, Mike Bainbridge and Joe Arpasi. 

Note: We encourage debate amongst of staff, therefore you are likely to see differing Start-Sit opinions regarding specific players.  These opinions also may not match up with the FFCPI.  Remember, our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible, so that you can form your own opinion.

(These selections are geared towards traditional (season-long) league formats.  However, DFS players could glean some valuable nuggets of info as well.)



QUARTERBACKS



Start’Em



Paxton Lynch, Memphis vs. SMU 
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
The SMU defense is really bad and Lynch has had two solid fantasy performances in a row. Having another good day this week is very likely for Lynch.


Tyler Murphy, Boston College vs. Wake Forest
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
Murphy finds ways to get it done, whether it’s with his legs or his arm. He isn’t going to put up a huge number, but is a solid consistent performer with a good matchup this week.


Andrew Hendrix, Miami Ohio vs. Kent State
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
With another good performance Hendrix becomes a weekly must start. I’m betting that he will have another monster game against a very poor Kent State defense. Hendrix has thrown for 300+ yards in each of the past three games and has scored multiple touchdowns in every game. Look for a lot more of the same this week.

The Fine Line: Using Vegas To Set Winning Week 9 Lineups

Posted on October 23, 2014 by Hunter Harrison

Playing daily college fantasy football can be overwhelming. There are so many games each weekend that it is hard to know where to start. Lucky for us, our friends in Vegas are here to help. We can determine the projected highest scoring teams each week by looking at point spreads and over/unders. This is a great place to start narrowing down the list of teams to target. I’ll be identifying those teams for you each week and breaking down their matchups.

 

FanDuel announced the return of $500K King of the Campus earlier this week with a cool $100K to first place. It will run during bowl season so there is plenty of time to earn tickets through satellites. It’s a great sign for the future of daily college fantasy football that we continue to see these tournament guarantees grow. Hopefully other sites will follow suit with other big tournaments (hint hint DraftKings). There’s a great Thursday/Friday slate this week so I’d encourage everyone to get in on it even if you typically avoid those nights. Let’s get to the games. Good luck this week.

 

  

Oregon vs. Cal (Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA) O/U 78.5

Projected score: Oregon 48 - Cal 30

  

Oregon will obviously be the most heavily targeted team in the Thursday/Friday slate, and rightly so. They face a Cal team that is the worst in the nation at defending the pass. Marcus Mariota will likely be able to do whatever he wants on Friday night. You’ll have to commit a huge chunk of your cap to roster him, but he could easily put up 40 plus fantasy points. The only concern I have with Mariota is opportunity, but it could be another one of those 21-25 passing nights that results in five TDs as he had against Washington State.

DFS Player Rankings: Week 9, FanDuel

Posted on October 22, 2014 by Kevin Mount

Welcome to the Week 9 Fanduel Player Rankings. These rankings will be a bit different than the traditional season long weekly rankings. These weekly rankings will heavily weigh the player’s Fanduel salary versus expected production. If a player has a very high salary and a tough match up, that player could be ranked lower than a cheaper priced player with a better match up.

 


FANDUEL PLAYER RANKINGS: THU/FRI GAME SET

 


QUARTERBACK

 

1)    Marcus Mariota, Oregon vs. Cal ($12200)

Mariota should be worth his insanely high price tag against Cal.

 

2)    Shane Carden, ECU vs. UCONN ($10400)

Look for Carden to light up the Huskies this week.

 

3)    Gunner Kiel, Cincinnati vs. South Florida ($8300)

Expect Kiel to bounce back in a big way against USF this week.
