DraftKings Week 6 CFB Picks and Lineups

Week 6 of the college football season, and we have our first slate with two 50 point team implied totals. Having Oklahoma and LSU both active and in massive mismatches doesn’t hurt.

DraftKings can’t get Jalen Hurts’s salary high enough. Even at $9,300, he is averaging 5x value for his slate-high salary. The salaries for Burrow and Ehlinger are better, but both guys are still averaging well over 4x value for their week 6 salary.

While we are on the topic of value. The target number last week was right around 250 points to take down some of the larger Week 6 CFB contests. Keep in mind the lineups that hit that number got 70+ points from Devonta Smith and a combined 165 points from Tua/Hurts/Smith.

That is highly unlikely to happen again, so I think we can drop the target number down just slightly to 225 or roughly 4.5x value.

DraftKings College Football Week 6 QB’s

Jalen Hurts

QB | Oklahoma | DraftKings Salary: $9,300
It’s hard to fade Hurts at this point. He has the highest ceiling in the slate (65.9 vs Houston) and, as we mentioned in the intro, is averaging 4.95x value his $9,300 salary on the year. Locking up value for nearly 20% your total salary is certainly tempting.

That being said, starting Hurts forces your hand elsewhere. Starting him alone lowers your average remaining per player from $6,250 to $5,814. This means you are going to have to find targets under $5,000 which was a real struggle in this slate. That being said, we will identify a few later in the article.

Steve Clifford

QB | Penn State | DraftKings Salary: $7,100
The QB 2 spot came down to a small group of guys for me: Clifford, Morgan, Cunningham, and Duffey. I think Morgan likely puts up bigger numbers this week but gives you nothing on the ground. After getting burned by Duffey last week, he is due to blow up in my face this week. I’ll have shares, but don’t have a large enough pair to recommend him here..

Clifford, on the other hand, has hit 50+ rushing yards in 3 of 4 games, and if you throw out the Pitt game he has actually averaged 33 DraftKings PPG this season.

Looking at this Week 6 matchup, Purdue has been extremely bad against the pass this season, but the front 7 has held its own at times against the run. I expect a big week out of Clifford as Penn State cruises to 5-0 here.

DraftKings College Football Week 6 RB’s

Chuba Hubbard

RB | Oklahoma State | DraftKings Salary: $8,900
A week after advocating cheapness at the RB position, we are back on the Chuba bandwagon. The value RB options in this slate are hot garbage. Guys stuck in committees, brutal matchups, or on teams that refuse to run the ball (Lincoln Riley).

After putting up 296 yards against a stout Kansas State defense there is really not a lot to say about the Texas Tech matchup here. I think Chuba has a 30 point floor and his ceiling is touchdown-dependant, but he did have 47 DraftKings points in a 3-touchdown game against Tulsa three weeks ago.


Reggie Corbin

RB | Illinois | DraftKings Salary: $5,800
Corbin feasted on the middle-to-lower half of the Big 10 last season, and that included the Gophers. He racked up 213 yards and 2 touchdowns on just 13 carries in this matchup last year. This game is in Minnesota, and I would feel better about the pick if he had more than 1 reception for 0 yards on the year, but I still think Corbin is the second-best RB play on the board for this slate.

DraftKings College Football Week 5 WR’s

Ja’Marr Chase

WR | LSU | DraftKings Salary: $7,000
A ridiculously talented 5 star rectuit, Chase somehow found himself playing second-fiddle to Jefferson and Marshall earlier this season. With Marshall out and Jefferson banged up, I think Chase is in line to have his third straight big game here.

Utah State is a well-coached team, but lost almost their entire defense from last season. They are giving up 299 passing YPG on the year, including 400 yards and 3 touchdowns to Julian Newman in week 1.


Rashod Bateman

WR | Minnesota | DraftKings Salary: $6,400
We keep waiting for Tyler Johnson to restake his claim as the number one receiver in Minnesota, but it just isn’t happening. Bateman has been better in every way this season. He is averaging 22.1 YPC on his 21 receptions despite a season-long catch of just 47 yards.

Bateman has hit 4x value in 3 out of 4 games this season, and hit 6x value against Purdue last season. The Illini have played a cake schedule and have somehow still managed to be 2-2 while allowing over 260 passing YPG.


Pat Freiermuth

WR | Penn State | DraftKings Salary: $4,400
Freiermuth led Penn State in touchdowns last year with 8 and had 4 in the Nittany Lions final 3 games. He is off to a considerably slower start this season, and already has 3 games under his season-low from a year ago. That being said Freiermuth really stepped his game up when Penn State got into their Big 10 schedule with 7 touchdowns in 9 Big 10 games. At $4,400, I think he has the most TD upside of the cheap options in this slate.


Stephen Sullivan

WR | LSU | DraftKings Salary: $4,000
I think Sullivan is the guy most likely to see a bump in snaps at WR with Marshall out. If that were not the case, the staff would have left him at TE and not moved him back to WR. He has put together back-to-back solid performances, with 7 catches for 99 yards over his last two games. We love the matchup and love the fact that Sullivan should see plenty of snaps in this new air-it-out Tigers offense.
