DraftKings college football quarterback picks October 4
Jalen Hurts is an elite play once again. Hurts has at least 42 DraftKings points in every game against FBS opponents. He threw his first interception of the season last weekend, but it wasn’t his fault. It was on a tipped pass. Hurts is breaking all kinds of personal records in this offense. That’s going to continue today against a Kansas team that was trampled by TCU last weekend.
We always wondered what LSU would look like with an offense that could score. Now we have it. Granted, the toughest defense they have played so far is Texas, but they are still a solid unit. I’m sold on this offense, but I’m not entirely sure Joe Burrow will be close enough to Hurts to justify moving down. Trying to fit them both is also a pretty big challenge.
Spencer Sanders had kind of a rough day against Kansas State. Texas Tech wont be much of a problem for him, but I also think that Oklahoma State is going to keep running because they can. It’s also worth noting that Sanders has only one touchdown pass to four interceptions in two Big 12(10) games.
Steven Montez put up big numbers on the better team in the state of Arizona. It’s safe to say that he will against the other as well. The only thing that has me nervous is the possibility of a blowout if Khalil Tate can’t go. It may be safer to move down to Sean Clifford. Clifford torched Maryland and Purdue has a bad defense. On top of that, the Boiler actually played better against Minnesota one Sindelar and Moore left the game. That makes no sense, but that’s what happened.
I’m big on Grant Gunnell here if Tate can’t go. Gunnell racked up 352 yards through the air against UCLA, and the Colorado pass defense isn’t any better.
Tanner Morgan had a career day against Purdue. Only one pass hit the ground the entire day. He completed 21 of 22 attempts for 396 yards. It may not be that easy against Illinois, but we saw what Nebraska did to this defense, right? Morgan could be a very strong cheap play.
Life wont be much easier for Jett Duffey this week, but at least he appears to have quashed all talk of Tyner replacing him. Duffey wasn’t great either against Oklahoma, but he was serviceable. Texas Tech is going to have to throw a lot if they want to keep up with the Cowboys as well, so the potential is there for Duffey.
