College football DFS wide receiver picks November 19:

Top Tier:

This slate is littered with running teams so it shouldn’t come as a shock that Tulsa’s two wideouts are the only high priced guys. Keylon Stokes is having another superb season and should keep it up here. This whole passing offense looked great against SMU last week.

Josh Johnson had a huge game last week, but I still expect Stokes to see more of the targets. The ideal scenario here is for Tulsa to fall behind again, then fight their way back through the air. If that doesn’t happen, the receivers will have a harder time paying off the price.

Middle Tier:

Wyoming was forced to play catch up last week after falling behind on the first play of the game to Colorado State. That wasn’t good for Levi Williams, but it was great for Ayden Eberhardt. We learned who the top Cowboys target through the air is. My fear here is that the Cowboys wont really have to throw in this game. In that case, you’re overpaying for a guy who hasn’t scored a touchdown all season.

In theory, Deven Thompkins should make the transition more smooth for Peasley, but the reality is that Peasley may not have the arm to get it to him. The Aggies will find a way to get Thompkins the ball even if it is on run plays. He’s a big risk/reward play here. If Peasley has a solid game, Thompkins could have a big game. If Peasley struggles, Thompkins wont sniff double digits and will likely end up in the low singles.

Tulane doesn’t throw much, but they may find themselves in a situation where they have to. Jha’Quan Jackson has six touchdowns on just 18 receptions this year. Jackson is the guy to go to since he’s likely to find the end zone.

Bargain Shoppers:

Deuce Watts is in a similarly nice spot. He leads the Wave with 21 receptions and 391 yards but doesn’t have the touchdowns that Jackson boasts. The issue here is that Tulsa’s secondary is very good. They did a job on a more talented SMU receiving corps last week. That makes Jackson and Watts big risks.

Tulsa has played four games this year. Sam Crawford has exactly four receptions in every one of those games. You can’t get any more consistent than that.

If upside is more your play, JuanCarlos Santana has 42.1 DraftKings points over the last three games and will only set you back $3,900. He’s risky considering Tulsa may not have to throw a lot, but he’s definitely trending upward in that offense.
