DraftKings college football quarterback picks December 20
Chris Reynolds is the highest priced quarterback on the slate. For those of you that never watched Charlotte this year, Reynolds is a capable passer, but a better runner. Buffalo’s run defense is stout though, so we may see Reynolds showcase his arm a little more. Reynolds topped 30 DraftKings points in four of the last five games. $7,000 could be a steal if he can get loose once or twice.
I’m not sure how Jordan Love can be the sixth rated passer in this draft, yet has such mediocre DFS numbers. I’m tempted to use him just because of the narrative, but I think the better play here is to use all of the stud running backs. I don’t see Love having a ceiling game, but Kent would be the place to do it if he did.
It may surprise you, but Dustin Crum had a better closing stretch than the guy leaving for the draft. Crum may be able to create some problems with his legs against Utah State here. The Aggies defense has not been all that great this year. Crum could surprise, but considering that the three top options at QB are only $300 apart, you have to truly believe he will outscore the other two to want to use him.
As per usual on MACtion nights, Kyle Vantrease is the lower tier at quarterback. Not that he’s a bad option. Vantrease has been solid (1,116 yards, seven touchdowns, one interception) all season, but unlike the rest of the QB’s going tonight, he’s not going to run on you. Buffalo’s run game has been so strong that they rarely need to pass, but when they do, Vantrease has been as good as they could hope. Buffalo may have to throw some against Charlotte, but realize that Vantrease has a low floor since the Bulls will run for as long as they are able.
