Week 11 DFS Cheatsheet – DraftKings $200k Contest

We have done the DFS homework for you, and here are is our breakdown for Saturday’s slate of games in college football. This is our preview for the DraftKings $200K Saturday Kickoff contest. A $20 entry gets you in the contest which pays out $50,000 to 1st place. We are using DraftKings numbers, so you have $50,000 to pick 8 players ($6,250 AVG).


  • LSU at Arkansas
  • Missouri at Tennessee
  • Oklahoma at West Virginia
  • Virginia Tech at Duke
  • Purdue at Illinois
  • Indiana at Ohio State
  • Notre Dame at Navy
  • SMU at USF
  • Alabama at Ole Miss
  • Iowa State at Oklahoma State
  • Louisville at Clemson
  • Nebraska at Michigan
  • Maryland at Penn State
  • UCF at Tulane


Top Plays

  • CJ Stroud (Ohio St) $9,500
  • Bryce Young (Alabama) $9,300
  • Jayden Daniels (LSU) $8,500

Stroud has a great match-up, and I expect a big bounce back game after that wind storm last week vs Northwestern. Young looked off last week vs LSU, but I expect Alabama to bounce back this week in that “Wounded Animal Mode.” Daniels goes up against an Arkansas team that just lost to Liberty, and he should continue to play well.

Best Value Plays

  • Hendon Hooker (Tennessee) $8,300
  • Tanner Mordecai (SMU) $8,100
  • Dillon Gabriel (Oklahoma) $8,000
  • Riley Leonard (Duke) $7,900
  • JJ McCarthy (Michigan) $6,500
  • Michael Pratt (Tulane) $6,100

Hendon Hooker at $8,300 is an outstanding play. I expect the Vols and the offense to bounce back this week vs Missouri. Tanner Mordecai had 10 TDs last week. That’s right 10 touchdowns, and he has an outstanding match-up this week vs USF, who just fired their head coach. Riley Leonard at 7.9K is a play who should excel. Virginia Tech is pathetic and has been eaten alive by freshman QBs the last few weeks. If you want to save money, there’s a lot of good value with McCarthy and Pratt.

Longshot Plays

  • Hunter Dekkers (Iowa St) $5,700

There’s only one longshot play I like at QB this week, and that’s Iowa State QB Hunter Dekkers. Dekkers is averaging 19 PPG and has a favorable match-up vs Oklahoma State.

Running Backs

Top Plays

Best Value Plays

  • Eric Gray (Oklahoma) $7,600
  • Miyan Williams (Ohio St) $7,300
  • Quinshon Judkins (Ole Miss) $7,000
  • Will Shipley (Clemson) $6,700
  • Tyjae Spears (Tulane) $6,500
  • Donovan Edwards (Michigan) $5,600
  • Audric Estime (Notre Dame) $5,400
  • RJ Harvey (UCF) $5,400

There’s a lot of value here at RB this week. Will Shipley at $6,700 will bounce back this week vs Louisville. Tyjae Spears and RJ Harvey are two players I mentioned last week, and they’ll both excel again this week facing off vs each other. Quinshon Judkins is a contrarian play at 7K. He won’t be highly owned, and he’s averaging 24.3 PPG.

Longshot Plays

  • Nick Singleton (Penn St) $5,100
  • Jordan Waters (Duke) $5,000
  • Logan Diggs (Notre Dame) $4,500

All three of these RBs have good match-ups and are capable of 20+ point games. I really like Jordan Waters vs Virginia Tech.


Top Plays

  • Rashee Rice (SMU) $8,400
  • Xavier Hutchinson (Iowa St) $8,300
  • Charlie Jones (Purdue) $8,100
  • Marvin Harrison Jr (Ohio St) $7,900

Rashee Rice is my favorite play of this group and the most expensive. He’s averaging 26.5 PPG and has a great match-up. I could see Marvin Harrison Jr having a 150+ receiving yard game with 2 TDs.

Best Value Plays

  • Jalin Hyatt (Tennessee) $7,300
  • Marvin Mims (Oklahoma) $7,200
  • Ryan O’Keefe (UCF) $6,600
  • Cedric Tillman (Tennessee) $6,500
  • Ja’Corey Brooks (Alabama) $6,300
  • Xavier Weaver (USF) $5,900
  • Kaleb Smith (Virginia Tech) $5,200

Jalin Hyatt at 7.3K is criminal. I can see him and Cedric Tillman at 6.5K both having massive games. Someone has to step up at WR for Alabama, and Ja’Corey Brooks has the potential for a big game vs Ole Miss. Kaleb Smith is the #1 WR for VT and big play threat because of his size and technique.

Longshot Plays

  • Jordan Kerley (SMU) $4,600
  • Tyrick James (Tulane) $4,500
  • Cade Stover (Ohio St) $4,300
  • Cameron Latu (Alabama) $4,000
  • Theo Johnson (Penn St) $3,500
  • Nick Gallo (Virginia Tech) $3,400

There’s a ton of value at tight end this week. James, Stover, and Latu are all capable of big games. Theo Johnson and Nick Gallo are two very cheap plays who have the potential to get you 8-12 points.
