- Top choices for college football daily fantasy this Saturday include Oklahoma QB Spencer Rattler available for $9,100.
- Other top picks include Minnesota running back Mohammed Ibrahim ($10,000) and Oklahoma State receiver Tylan Wallace ($7,100).
LAS VEGAS – The end of the week is here and that means it’s time once again for college football daily fantasy.
DraftKings is running its weekly College Football Kickoff DFS tournament that allows bettors draft a full team of players from the noon slot of games on Saturday.
There are tons of options to choose from, but only the best lineups will cash out the big money and live on in eternal Daily college football Fantasy glory.
Looking at the selection of players available leads to some standouts as well as value picks further down the board.
QB1: Spencer Rattler, Oklahoma ($9,100)
Spencer Rattler hasn’t been the world-beating quarterback for Oklahoma that college football fans are used to. After all, it’s a hard task to follow up Jalen Hurts, Kyler Murray, and Baker Mayfield.
But Rattler has done his best to lead the offense following the Sooners’ two early losses.
The key here is the matchup, as Oklahoma faces one of the worst teams in the country in Kansas. The Jayhawks look like a high school team on defense and should stand no chance against Rattler and his receivers.
QB2: Sam Howell, North Carolina ($8,100)
North Carolina ascended as high as No. 5 in the country in the AP poll, but was knocked off in an upset a few weeks ago against FSU. The Tar Heels suffered another loss since then, but the blame does not fall on Howell, who had another stellar game.
Howell has only failed to throw for multiple touchdowns in one game this season, and has thrown for over 373 yards in two of his last three games.
Look for another big game from Howell against a Duke secondary that likely can’t keep up.
Value QB: Taulia Tagovailoa, Maryland ($7,000)
After struggling in his starting debut for Maryland, the younger Tagovailoa brother went off against Minnesota. Taulia completed 26 of his 35 passing attempts for 394 yards, three touchdowns, and added two more scores with his legs.

The Terrapins face off against Penn State this weekend, who currently has the 123rd ranked defense in the country after their first two games.
While there is certainly more risk with this pick, Taulia is primed for another big day.
RB1: Mohamed Ibrahim, Minnesota ($10,000)
College football world, meet Mohamed Ibrahim. From out of nowhere, Ibrahim has had the biggest first two games of nearly any player in any position this college football season.
In his first game, Ibrahim carried the ball 26 times against Michigan, going for 140 yards and two touchdowns.
In his next game against Maryland, Ibrahim carried the rock 41 times. Forty-one times. Ibrahim ran for 207 yards and four touchdowns, scoring 47.7 fantasy points.
Minnesota now faces an even worse defense in Illinois, and will likely hammer Ibrahim once again.
RB2: Leddie Brown, West Virginia ($8,200)
The Mountaineers of WVU take on the Texas Longhorns this week, where running back Leddie Brown is poised for a big day. Brown has been the steady and solid option out of the backfield for the ‘Neers this year, and consistently sees touches in the twenties.
Brown has rushed for over 100 yards four times this season, and has only scored less than 26 fantasy points on one occasion. Against a Texas defense that lets teams score at will, Brown should have another big day.
Value RB: Zamir White, Georgia ($7,200)
Zamir White has been the biggest weapon for the Bulldogs this season out of the backfield, especially with the struggles from Stetson Bennet at quarterback. White had his biggest game of the season last week at Kentucky, going for 136 yards and a touchdown.
Against a Florida defense that hasn’t been able to stop the run this year, White will be relied on heavily to move the ball down the field.
If the Dawgs are caught in a shootout, White won’t see the same amount of production, but if Georgia can control the game and slow things down, White could have another 100-yard performance.
WR1: Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State ($7,100)
Last week’s WR2 gets bumped up to the No. 1 slot this week as Tylan Wallace just continues to put up huge numbers. Against Texas, Wallace had 11 catches for 187 yards and two scores.
The Cowboys match up with the Kansas State Wildcats this weekend, and are looking to bounce back following their first loss of the season. While the game won’t be an overtime thriller like it was against Texas, Wallace will be the number one option for the offense going forward.
WR2: Kadarius Toney, Florida ($7,800)
The Gators offense has been a machine in 2020 behind Kyle Trask at quarterback. Out of the many weapons Trask has at his disposal, none are more elusive than Kadarius Toney.
While Toney doesn’t put up the big yardage numbers, he found the endzone three times in his last game against Missouri. Against Georgia, the Bulldogs will likely focus on Kyle Pitts as the deep threat downfield, leaving Toney with plenty of open room to work.
Value WR: Marvin Mims, Oklahoma ($6,800)
Marvin Mims isn’t the top receiver for the Sooners, but consistently finds the endzone when it matters. Mims has only gone over 100 yards in one game this season, but has scored six touchdowns.
Against Kansas, the Sooners will have to actively stop themselves from scoring 100 points. Mims should easily have his best game of the season as Oklahoma puts up some massive numbers.
