DraftKings college football quarterback picks November 12
Nathan Rourke hasn’t been under 29 DraftKings points since week 6 against Buffalo. Most of his damage is done on the ground, which should favor Ohio. Western Michigan is better against the pass than the run. Rourke hasn’t had more than 140 yards passing in two weeks, but he has run for at least two touchdowns in each of the last three games. You should get what you pay for in Rourke.
I don’t understand the price on Mike Glass. He is coming off of his worst game of the season against Buffalo. I know Akron is bad, but at some point the ability of the other players has to be assessed. Glass is a decent runner, but he only had 95 passing yards against Buffalo. 80 of them were on one play. Glass didn’t play much in the second half, but his awful play in the first half was likely why.
Jon Wassink isn’t really known as a runner, but he was last week against Ball State. That salvaged his stat line. Wassink is a decent quarterback, but Western Michigan is a run first team. We haven’t seen Wassink top 200 passing yards since he threw all over Toledo in week 6. This price is setting Wassink up for failure against a decent Ohio team. One that faces a running quarterback in practice all week, I might add.
Injuries, suspension, and regression have haunted Kato Nelson this year. It’s not all his fault. If you have watched Akron at all this year, they have one of the worst offensive lines in the world. That’s why they don’t have room to run or time to pass. The Zips are going to need to throw in this one, but they also needed to in a blowout loss to Bowling Green and Nelson completely just nine of his 24 attempts with no touchdowns and two interceptions. Quantity doesn’t always equal quality.
Preston Hutchinson is one to keep an eye on. Hutchinson played well in the second half of the blowout loss to Buffalo. Hutchinson isn’t going to start, but if this game gets out of hand like Vegas thinks it will, we could see more of Hutchinson. For $4,900, he will outscore Nelson if he gets in the game.
