College Football DFS Bargains for CFF Week 12

Justin Heisey sorts through the Week 12 college football schedule to identify the top DFS bargains you can use to put you in the green.

Saturday Noon

Trevor Lawrence, Clemson

Draft Kings Price: $7,300
FanDuel Price: $9,700

After a shaky start to begin the season, Trevor Lawrence’s fantasy numbers have been nothing short of dominant since the close call against North Carolina. Although Wake Forest isn’t going to be the shootout many wanted it to be with Sage Surratt and Scottie Washington out of the picture, Lawrence is on a run of 30 point fantasy games and that won’t slow down as the Tigers close out their regular season ACC play against the weak Demon Deacon defense.

Davis Mills, Stanford

Draft Kings Price: $4,800
FanDuel Price: NA

In a very last-minute move, David Shaw announced that KJ Costello will miss this Saturday’s matchup against the Washington State Cougars. Davis Mills, who hasn’t been terrible against lower-level competition, gets the luxury of torching the defensively challenged Cougars. Mills comes in far under the average per player cost and opens up the option of Etienne and Hubbard making your starting lineup.

Keontay Ingram, Texas

Draft Kings Price: $6,000
FanDuel Price: $8,500

Texas has relied on Roshon Johnson all season long in the absence of Keontay Ingram and last week against Kansas State he finally showed all he could be with 139 yards and a pair of scores. This week Texas takes on Iowa State who gave up 132 yards and a score to Kennedy Brooks a week ago. Expect Ingram to continue his success in the future barring injury.

Journey Brown, Penn State

Draft Kings Price: $5,000
FanDuel Price: $8,700

Noah Cain’s lack of field presence is the best possible thing for Journey Brown who was on fire last week for the Penn State Nittany Lions. 145 yards and a pair of scores put Brown over 30 points against a tough Minnesota D and now the floor is the ceiling against Indiana who allowed big games to Wan’Dale Robinson and Javon Leake I’m back to back weeks. Cain is expected out again this week so snatch up the reasonable priced Brown and use the smart money in other places.

KJ Hamler, Penn State

Draft Kings Price: $6,200
FanDuel Price: $8,700

My jaw dropped when I saw that KJ Hamler clocked in at average per-player price in Draft King’s and FanDuel. Hamler averages the seventh-most fantasy points in the noontime slot and is an absolute bargain. Expect a continued reign of dominance from Penn State’s most valuable asset against Indiana.

Justyn Ross, Clemson

Draft Kings Price: $5,900
FanDuel Price: $8,100

Although Ross isn’t hitting the monumental highs we expected after his late 2018 surge, he has gone for double digits in every game since hurting his hip midseason. Wake Forest’s defense is a cakewalk and after the horrendous week that Joe Ngata and Tee Higgins had against NC State that Ross is in for a big week.

Saturday 3:30

Brady White, Memphis

Draft Kings Price: $7,700
FanDuel Price: $8,600

Brady White isn’t exactly what Memphis has had in the past at quarterback but he’s had some huge games this year against inferior defenses. Houston has an issue with tackling and that will play in the favor of White who seems to have found a favorite target in Antoine Gibson.

Lynn Bowden, Kentucky

Draft Kings Price: NA

FanDuel Price: $8,900

Lynn Bowden at quarterback has been a CFF player’s dream come true all this season and despite his spotty passing ability, he’s managed 700+ yards rushing. Bowden may play quarterback and wide receiver with Sawyer Smith somewhat healthy making him that much more enticing against a weak Vanderbilt defensive unit that ranks in the bottom of the SEC in most defensive categories.

Breece Hall, Iowa State

Draft Kings Price: $6,800
FanDuel Price: $8,700

Breeze Hall has been exactly what the doctor ordered since his big game against West Virginia. Texas’ defense hasn’t been the best this season and while Brock Purdy is a favorite of mine this week, Hall will certainly get his against Texas in what I expect to be another loss for the Clones.

Cameron Scarlett, Stanford

Draft Kings Price: $5,800
FanDuel Price: $8,100

Cameron Scarlett is by no means Bryce Love of Christian McCaffrey but he has carried the team on his very shoulders multiple times this season in the absence of KJ Costello and Davis Mills. Mills gets the start this week so Scarlett will likely see an uptick in carries. Good news for Scarlett is that the Washington State Cougars are jet puffed and allowed ver 30 points to a Cal offense that has been stagnant since the loss of Chase Garbers.

Simi Fehoko, Stanford

Draft Kings Price: $4,400

FanDuel Price: $7,200

There are plenty of options out there that average 10+ points a game but there are none that are this cheap. Simi Fehoko has stood the test of quarterbacks this season with multiple 90+ yards outings and he’s done so with his staggering size advantage over most college football corners. Expect a solid performance from Fehoko at an incredibly generous price.

A lot of options in the Noon timeslot are also available in the 3:30 time slot so feel free to double down.

Saturday 7:00

Zac Thomas, App State

Draft Kings Price: $6,700

FanDuel Price: $8,400

Not always can you sneak one by the FanDuel guys but you’ll certainly get that chance this week. What if I told you that you could have a guy with an opportunity to score 3+ times for less than average per player price? Well, you’re in luck because Zac Thomas has been a touchdown gold mine since winning the job last year and will keep on succeeding this week against a weaker Georgia State defense with multiple surging receivers.

John Rhys Plumlee, Ole Miss

Draft Kings Price: $6,100

FanDuel Price: $8,700

You can try to talk me out of this one because he’s playing LSU but I’m not too worried. LSU is on a big high from a big win and they are going up against an incredibly athletic quarterback after getting brutalized by the Alabama offense. John Rhys Plumlee is just too talented to leave on the sidelines this weekend in a game that could see no shortage of points for both teams. Matt Corral may get a drive but this is Plumlee’s team.

Joshua Kelley, UCLA

Draft Kings Price: $6,700

FanDuel Price: $8,500

The prices on Joshua Kelley this week are ridiculously cheap. Kelley has not gone under 20 fantasy points since week nine and even with a tough matchup against Utah, I’m confident that Dorian Thompson-Robinson will do enough to keep the Utah defense on their toes while Kelley continues his hot streak.

Marcus McElroy, Colorado State

Draft Kings Price: NA

FanDuel Price: $6,800

Unfortunately, Marvin Kinsey Jr. has been released from the Colorado State Rams after a strong 2019 campaign that saw him produce multiple 200-yard performances. While Kinsey may no longer be in the program, Marcus McElroy who admirably filled Kinsey’s shoes at times is available on FanDuel for an incredibly generous price. His last time out as the number one got him 118 yards and a pair of scores. The Rams take on Air Force in a prominent conference matchup at home.

Bryan Edwards, South Carolina

Draft Kings Price: $6,300

FanDuel Price: $8,500

I don’t understand the argument against Bryan Edwards. He’s taking on a not so great Texas A&M defense with a quarterback he’s used to playing with and he averages over 20 points per game. His games against App State and Vanderbilt were huge in the past two weeks and another big game is needed against the Aggies as the Gamecocks try to reach a bowl game.

Josh Fleeks, Baylor

Draft Kings Price: $4,600

FanDuel Price: $6,000

Josh Fleeks isn’t just any ordinary lower-priced player. Fleeks is a guy that went crazy two weeks ago and has steadily worked his way into the Baylor rotation over the past three weeks to the extent that he tied the lead for receptions with Denzel Mims last week. Oklahoma’s defense hasn’t been the same since getting exposed by the Kansas State Wildcats a few weeks back and Fleeks and Mims will make a formidable duo against the Sooners as the Bears vie for the upset.
