Evening DraftKings college football wide receiver picks October 12

Top Tier:

I don’t care how strong the Utah defense is, I still want Isaiah Hodgins. He has ten receptions in each of the last two games and had seven each in the two prior games. Hodgins is matchup proof, even if his quarterback is not.

Both LSU and Wake Forest have elite receiver tandems. Both teams also face very tough pass defenses. Ja’Marr Chase is probably the most talented one of either bunch, but the price is pretty steep. If I go with any of these receivers, I’m leaning towards Scotty Washington from Wake. However, someone is going to come up with a big play or two for LSU. The trick is finding who will.

Middle Tier:

USC is going to have to throw to keep up, so both Tyler Vaughns and Michael Pittman are solid options. I wouldn’t play Slovis here, but the receivers don’t have to worry about turnovers for the most part. Their upside is somewhat limited here, but not enough to scare me off.

Chatarius Atwell has shown the ability to produce no matter who throws him the passes. So has Dez Fitzpatrick. Wake’s defense has been a bit of a sore spot. Louisville is going to be able to move the ball, and most key components of their offense are cheap.

Bargain Shoppers:

Wan’Dale Robinson has become the only reliable piece of the Nebraska offense. The weather is probably going to limit him here, but for the price, we simply can’t ignore the upside. If the snow misses Minneapolis, Robinson could be in for another big night.

Albert Okwuegbunam is the only truly safe piece of the Missouri offense. The Tigers may not have to throw much, but you can bet Albert O. is going to get at least one touchdown. He has at least one in all but the opening loss to Wyoming.

Florida has a whole stable of receivers, but the only one I’m really willing to gamble on is Freddie Swain. He’s the only one fast enough to outrun the LSU defense
