College football DFS wide receiver picks November 17:
Isaiah McKoy still had a big game in the blowout last week. He exited the game around the same time Crum did and scored almost as much. McKoy better this week as well considering his price is very near Crum’s.
We haven’t seen Buffalo in a blowout yet, but we are still seeing Antonio Nunn get big plays against everyone. We saw what McKoy did to the Falcons secondary last week. Nunn should do much of the same.
McKoy wasn’t the only Kent WR to have a huge game against Bowling Green. Ja’Shaun Poke hauled in a pair of touchdowns as well. Poke is priced very reasonably. He still would have accounted for 13.1 DraftKings points without the touchdowns last week, so I don’t see an issue with the touchdowns or not. Poke is a strong play for the price regardless.
Isaiah Wooden didn’t catch a pass in Kent’s first game so don’t be fooled by his big stats against Bowling Green. They were mostly in garbage time. I’m not saying that he can’t do it again, but betting on him to do so is a huge risk.
It’s not often that you can get a number 1 receiver at $4,600. Such is the case with Nate Stewart. Akron doesn’t throw the ball as much as they need to, but at the very least Stewart has a strong floor for a value play.
I was one of the few on Zac Lefebvre last week. His touchdown paid us off handsomely. He is the second-most targeted Buffalo receiver in a superb matchup. Yes, that counts for something again.
The Zips scratched Michael Mathison last week for no reason, so I would guess that he’s a risk again. There has been nothing on the wire about him opting out or transferring, so we really don’t know what’s going on. He’s a good compliment to Stewart if he plays. If not, Tony Grimes could have another strong game on the cheap.
I have been asked a few times about who the best receiver is for Bowling Green. The answer is I have no freaking idea. I will say this though. Matt McDonald has completed just 14 passes out of 50 attempts on the entire season. None of these guys are safe and few have upside. Quintin Morris appears to have the most targets and Julian Ortega-Jones seems to have the most upside. Take that for what it’s worth.
Kent has so many receiving options that it’s hard to choose who you want. I will say that Dante Cephas as cheap as he is looks very nice. He caught six passes in the opener despite only two last week. There’s solid upside for a value play.
