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.)
Christian Stewart, BYU vs. Middle Tennessee State
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
Stewart struggled a little bit last week against a tough Boise State defense. Fortunately this week he gets to face a Middle Tennessee State defense that is allowing 30+ points and 460+ yards per game. Stewart will make plays running and passing in this one.
Cody Kessler, USC vs. Washington State
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
I’m betting that the Trojans are going to score a lot of points on Saturday and Kessler will get his fair share. Buck Allen is going to run wild, but I think Kessler will still deliver a solid performance with 250+ passing yards and 2-3 touchdowns.

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.
The first College Football Playoff Rankings were released this week. The standing don’t really matter at this point, but there may be some valuable information in there. Yes, there are three teams from the SEC West in the top four, but things will change. The real place to look is those teams that are on the outside looking in. The teams that need to do everything they can to impress the committee. That could mean a coach deciding to leave the starters in a little longer in a blowout. That extra passing TD could be the difference in winning a GPP and placing outside the top 20. Every little bit of information is valuable, so keep an eye on these rankings each week. Let’s get to the games. Good luck.
TCU @ West Virginia O/U 74
Projected score: TCU 40 - West Virginia 34
TCU came it at 7th in the initial College Football Playoff Rankings. They are in a pretty good position, but only have a couple more opportunities to impress the committee. This week’s trip to Morgantown is one of them. The Horned Frogs absolutely destroyed Texas Tech last week by a score of 82-27. They currently lead the nation in scoring offense at just over 50 points per game. Most of that offense comes from QB Trevone Boykin. He’s one of the most expensive players on the day for good reason. Boykin is coming off a 51 point fantasy day and is second on the season in fantasy points per game at the position, trailing only Connor Halliday. I’m not expecting TCU to score 80 again this week, but a more competitive game will help Boykin. He hasn’t run much in recent blowouts, but that should change this week.

Welcome to the Week 10 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
1) Kevin Ellison, Georgia Southern vs. Troy ($7600)
Ellison’s upside and price put him atop the list this week.
2) Paxton Lynch, Memphis vs. Tulsa ($9000)
Lynch could have a big night against a bad Tulsa D.
3) Jameis Winston, Florida State vs. Louisville ($12000)
The Louisville D is pretty good and his price is outrageous this week.
