College football DFS core plays January 2:

There are some interesting GPP options on this slate and there aren’t a lot of sure things that aren’t that expensive. Cash game staples are more common on this one, but most of them are viable in GPP formats as well.

Cash game staples:

Brock Purdy, QB, Iowa State
Breece Hall, RB, Iowa State
Chris Rodriguez, RB, Kentucky
Whop Philyor, WR, Indiana
Jalen Wydermyer, TE, Texas A&M
Dontario Drummond, WR, Mississippi

This is a slate where you can get creative in deep field GPP’s by stacking up on running backs. There aren’t any cheap quarterbacks that are head and shoulders above the position players.

GPP only pivot plays:

Jack Tuttle, QB, Indiana
Stevie Scott, RB, Indiana
Elijah Green, RB, North Carolina
Ty Fryfogle, WR, Indiana
Jonathan Mingo, WR, Mississippi
Charlie Kolar, TE, Iowa State


Iowa State
Texas A&M (GPP only)
Mississippi (GPP only)
Kentucky (GPP only)
