DMar's DraftKings CFB Daily Fantasy Plays

Dmar’s CFB Daily Fantasy Intro:

What’s up, 4Deep?! Back again for week 2, not a lot of big game matchups on this one, but there is plenty to love on the fantasy side of it. Enjoy another great day of football and let’s take something down! Like always, I will be in Discord to help assist you with your teams. Good luck, everyone!

UPDATE:Michael Pratt is a GTD now, I think he plays but the ankle will limit his mobility. 


  • Jaxson Dart – Coming into the year, there were questions on who would be the QB for Ole Miss with the addition of veteran Spencer Sanders from OK State. While Dart may have been the guy the whole time, Kiffin made him earn it and he looked fantastic in the home opener. This will be a step up in competition compared to week 1, but it also gives us a more competitive game environment and I could see a lot of points scored on both sides. This makes Michael Pratt a great runback and a solid play himself, going against a Pete Golding-led defense for Ole Miss who left Alabama last season, and as a fan, I was never more excited to see a DC leave. Love this game and both QBs.
  • Shedeur Sanders – Oh buddy, did Colorado ball out in week one! Sanders and his playmakers put up video game numbers and made it look easy. Now they get their home opener against a Nebraska team who I think will improve throughout the season. Most feel after watching both teams that Colorado should roll in this one, but with Vegas just having the Buffs as a three-point favorite, they suggest this could be a close one, and with that, Sanders could put up another monster game, and you know Primetime wants to put on a show for this home crowd. Jeff Sims on the other side offers a good run back option. While the Nebraska passing attack still needs work, he offers elite running ability and could smash that $7,200 tag if he can break a couple.
  • Sam Hartman – Maybe the best I have felt about a Notre Dame team in some time, and it is all because of this man. Hartman is an elite college QB with pieces around him that can make this offense very lethal. We have no idea what this defense looks like with the competition they have faced so far, so if NC State scores some points, we could be looking at a ceiling game for Hartman. This will be their only true test before the battle with Ohio St. later this month, so I would think they use this game to get the offense firing and it all starts with Hartman.
  • Hudson Card – Another good game environment and a nice price for Card, who enters this one as a road dog. VT did get a 19-point win in week 1, but they allowed the opposing QB to put up a nice game with a couple of TD passes and almost 100 on the ground. Card and the Boilermakers should be a step up, and while Card is not a true dual threat, he can run when needed, and will have a lot of volume run through him.
  • Jordan McCloud – A great value piece for a very fantasy friendly offense. McCloud comes over from Arizona, where he showed flashes of being a strong fantasy option and now he joins an offense who can really showcase a QB of McCloud’s talent. Virginia is just not a good football team, so I think this could be a great showing for McCloud.
  • GPP Mentions – Jeff Sims, Brennan Armstrong, Devin Leary, Conner Weigman

Running Backs:

  • Quinshon Judkins – Guess you could say last week was a “down” game for Judkins and he still managed to find the end zone twice. With his price up, it does make it a little harder to play, but he is still one of the best backs in the country and a focal point of a great fantasy offense. Competitive game environment could lead to him smashing, and with the price of him and Dart, it would come down to picking between the two unless you want to get real different in a GPP.
  • Audric Estime – Not a guy I’m starting my team with, but you could do a lot worse than Estime on this slate. He provides a very safe floor, but I do lean the ND passing attack in this one.
  • Ray Davis – Similar to Estime, Davis should be a lock to score at least one TD and upside for much more. He scored in the final seconds last weekend in a game that was well out of hand. I think I would rather try and get up to Judkins, but if you can’t, Davis is a fine play.
  • Rasheen Ali – Not a lot of explaining to do on this one. Just a misprice by DK and he will by far be the highest-owned guy on the slate. Ali is, and has been, one of the best fantasy backs in the country, so barring something crazy, Ali will be well worth the $4,800 tag.
  • Kaleb Johnson – Rostering an Iowa back and watching can be a bit maddening at times with how they rotate, and after watching, I was honestly surprised he got 19 carries in week 1. But Johnson does look the best out of the backfield, and even though he isn’t involved in the passing game like he should be, the volume is there for this price, and if he falls into the end zone a couple times, he could be a must-have piece.
  • Deion Hankins – Big Hank got back in his lead back role after a weird week 0 game. This Northwestern team might be one of the worst power 5 teams, and after running for 174 and no scores last week, I think he finds the box at least once in this one and makes for a nice play at this price.
  • Kaelon Black – Black shares the backfield with Palmer and does have a mobile QB to battle with for touches, but this is an offense we want to use when we can, and at this price, he offers us upside and a decent floor.
  • GPP Mentions – Henry Parrish Jr, Dylan Edwards, DJ Giddens, Blake Corum, Donovan Edwards, Devin Mockobee

Wide Receivers:

  • Colorado WRs – We saw last week this offense can support multiple pieces of this offense, and while that isn’t something I see continuing, stacking up two with Sanders is very viable. An absurd injury news ruined our Travis Hunter play last week, and now we get him more expensive this week. But, he is my favorite of the group with no lean on Weaver or Horn Jr. Both are fine and it really just depends on what fits your lineup the best. I will play Hunter solo, but the other two I will probably only play in a Sanders stack.
  • Tre Harris – The definition of a slate breaker last week, Harris went nuclear in his Ole Miss debut. He and Dart obviously have a strong connection already, and with Franklin still not close to returning, he should once again be looked at early and often. Jordan Watkins is also a fine play and double stack material. Michael Trigg is also a nice value option. Ole Miss lost their other TE to injury and Trigg looked good after serving a first half suspension.
  • Evan Stewart – One of my favorite WRs this season. After an up and down freshman campaign largely due to inconsistent QB play, he has settled in with Weigman and is posed to be one of the top WRs in college football this season. We need to keep an eye on the rain in this one, but even at $7,100, this could be a buy-low opportunity on Stewart.
  • Jaden Greathouse – This should be a lower-owned play, as Greathouse is technically not a starter. But the freshman has built up a connection with Hartman early on and I think by the end of the year he could actually be the top WR of this group. Jayden Thomas provides a safer floor, but Hartman loves to target his favorites and Greathouse seems to be an early candidate for that.
  • Barion Brown – Brown was a bit of a disappointment last week as the Kentucky passing attack just never really got going. He did manage to salvage the day by showcasing his explosiveness with a punt return TD. But, I’m still a believer in Brown and in what should be a good tune up spot for the passing game and Brown is due for a long one. Dane Key showed some good rapport with Leary in week 1 and makes for a fine play himself at $4,700.
  • GPP Mentions – Roman Wilson, Cade Conley, Luke Lachey, Chris Brazzell, Billy Kemp Jr, Tobias Meriweather, Jaylen Lloyd
