There are only eight games making up the late Saturday tournament this week, meaning there are a few less options than the earlier ones on Saturdays. That still gives us plenty of options to choose from. Who are the best? Let’s go digging!

My Tuesday-Wednesday and Wednesday-Thursday lineups placed last week. I placed in one of the Saturday lineups, but there were too many duds to actually make much money. Greg Ward and Trevone Boykin leaving with injuries hurt if you spent on them.

To finish in the money, you need to choose the best high priced players, and the best cheap options to let you afford some high priced players. I will give you some of each option at each position and let you choose from there.

You haven’t experienced a Saturday until you have done a FanDuel Saturday (or DraftKings)! Here are my picks for the early and afternoon ones as well so you can track stats all day long!

Here are my FanDuel College Football Picks for late November 21:

Next: Who Will Put Up Big Numbers At QB?

Best Bets:

Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma ($9,800): TCU has given up big plays in the passing game since the Texas Tech game. Oklahoma’s doesn’t quite have the receivers that Texas Tech does, but they are close. Mayfield has scored more than 32 FanDuel points in each of his last three games. TCU’s defense isn’t as good as Baylor’s so expect Mayfield to have a big day in Oklahoma’s last home games. Look for the baker hats out in droves in Norman!

Keenan Reynolds, Navy ($8,600): Reynolds set the FBS career record for rushing touchdowns last weekend scoring four on the ground against SMU. Tulsa’s defense is not as bad as SMU’s is, but I wouldn’t call them good either. They have been knocked around by good offenses all year. Navy is one-dimensional, but they are very good in that one dimension. Look for another strong game from Reynolds as Navy chases down a New Year’s Six berth.

Honorable Mention:

Dak Prescott, Mississippi State ($9,500): Prescott has four straight games with over 300 passing yards, and that includes games against Missouri and Alabama, who are in the top 40 in pass defense. Arkansas had their way with Leonard Fournette last week, so Prescott could find the going slow on the ground once again, but Arkansas’ pass defense is 112th in the country. He should see his fifth straight 300+ yard game.

Dane Evans, Tulsa ($7,700): Navy has a decent pass defense, but Evans will still throw enough passes to try and keep Tulsa in the game. Another 300 yard game is not out of the question, but Evans still turns the ball over more than you would like to see, which makes him a bit of a risk.

Dark Horses:

J.W. Walsh, Oklahoma State ($6,500): Walsh has scored a touchdown on the ground in five straight games, doing so multiple times in two of those games. He is essentially Oklahoma State’s goal-line back. He is touchdown dependent, but no team has managed to keep him from at least scoring one touchdown yet this year. He is worth a flier against a Baylor defense that was gouged by Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Samaje Perine last week.

My pick: Mayfield

Next: Who Are The Best RB's?

Running Back:

Best Bets:

Alex Collins, Arkansas ($7,800): Collins ran for an impressive 141 yards on a vaunted LSU defense in a game that the Hogs controlled. Collins also topped the century mark against a good Mississippi defense the week before that. He should have no problems topping 100 against Mississippi State’s 73 ranked run defense.

Sony Michel, Georgia ($6,600): Statistically, Georgia Southern has a good run defense, but they have not faced a back like Michel in that time. The Bulldogs likely won’t run Michel as hard if this game gets out of hand, but he has been productive in every game besides the tilts against Alabama and Florida, two of the best defenses in the country. Michel should have a solid day against the Eagles.

Honorable Mention:

Samaje Perine, Oklahoma ($7,900): Lincoln Riley has shown a willingness to lean on Perine when necessary. Perine ran for 166 yards on Baylor last week with a season high 28 carries. With so much on the line again, expect Oklahoma to use Perine as much as needed in a showdown with TCU. He could get a pretty heavy workload once again.

Ralph Webb, Vanderbilt ($6,200): Inconsistent quarterback play has hampered Webb’s value, but the Commodores have also shown a willingness to use him to rest the defense and control the clock. Webb has four straight games of over 99 yards against the likes of Missouri, Florida, Houston, and Kentucky. All of them are in the top half in rush defense. Texas A&M’s 112th ranked run defense should seem like a cake walk for Webb.

Dark Horses:

Chris Swain, Navy ($5,900): The worst part for Swain is the fact that Keenan Reynolds scores the lion’s share of the touchdowns, but yards are still plentiful for Swain. Expect him to have a good game against a shaky Tulsa defense.

Devin Chafin, Baylor, ($4,900): Ladies and gentlemen, meet the reason I am not recommending Shock Linwood. Linwood is a great back and should rack up another 100 yard game, but he has not scored in two weeks because of Chafin. Chafin has become a touchdown vulture for Baylor in the last couple of games. He has 23 carries in the last two games, so he is not completely touchdown dependent, but he likely won’t help you much unless he reaches the end zone. Considering how Mike Warren looked against the Cowboys last week, it is a possibility.

My picks: Collins and Webb

Next: Can You Afford To Not Play Corey Coleman?

Wide Receiver:

Best Bets:

Corey Coleman, Baylor ($8,700): Oklahoma managed to keep Coleman under wraps, but I have my doubts that Oklahoma State can. Their corners aren’t quite as physical as Oklahoma’s are. Look for Coleman to be the focal point of the offense as the Bears try to salvage their hopes for a Big 12 title.

Sterling Shepard, Oklahoma ($7,700): Go look at the game that Jakeem Grant had against TCU. Shepard should be in that area (eight catches, 128 yards, TD) or higher. Shepard came through with a season high 14 catches against Baylor. He will be used heavily once again as the Sooners now find themselves in the playoff hunt.

Honorable Mention:

James Washington, Oklahoma State ($7,000): Iowa State was able to shut down Washington, but I have a hard time believing that Baylor can. Shepard had a big game against the Bears. There is a good chance that Washington does the same thing to the Baylor secondary.

Drew Morgan, Arkansas ($5,900): Morgan wasn’t much of a factor with the LSU corners hounding him all game, but he did well against Ole Miss and Auburn in the two games before that, scoring five total touchdowns in those games. He has the ability to rack up some good numbers on Mississippi State as well.

Fred Ross, Mississippi State ($5,400): With DeRunnya Wilson ailing, Ross has had back to back 100 yard games against tough defense in Missouri and Alabama. The Bulldogs are good enough to keep pace with Arkansas, and Prescott to Ross will be a big part of that.

Dark Horses:

Kolby Listenbee, TCU ($5,100): With Josh Doctson now done for the rest of the regular season, Listenbee will ascend to the top of the depth chart. He is going to have a tough time against an Oklahoma team that was able to hold Jakeem Grant and Corey Coleman well below their season averages. That said, Listenbee still has a good shot to come through with decent production for this price.

KaVontae Turpin, TCU ($5,100): Turpin is the home run threat in the offense, and is likely the one that will give Oklahoma the most problems. The fact that he returns kicks makes him more valuable since he could score a touchdown that way as well. If I had to choose between him and Listenbee, I would go with Turpin, though there are going to be roughly 20 targets per game to split up between them now that Doctson is out.

My picks: Shepard, Ross, and Morgan

Next: Can You Save Money At TE?

Tight End:

Best Bet:

Hunter Henry, Arkansas ($3,500): Henry has been a consistent fixture in the passing game all season long with injuries decimating the Piggies’ receiving corps at different times of the season. He is still as big a part of the offense as ever, with at least three catches in seven of his last eight games. He is the most consistent producer around, but you have to pay for it.

Honorable Mention:

Mark Andrews, Oklahoma ($3,200): Andrews has the highest per-game average of any tight end in action today, but that’s because he has scored six touchdowns on the season. He is the definition of touchdown dependent. He will either get you a touchdown, or nothing like he did against Baylor last week. Play him at your own risk.

Dark Horse:

Gus Walley, Mississippi State ($2,000): Walley has 14 catches in his last three games with 116 yards in that span. He hasn’t reached the end zone in that span, but getting six points for the lowest price in the game puts you ahead of the game.

My pick: Walley
