Using the outstanding and intuitive CFB Database at ExpandTheBoxScore.com, here’s my list of favorite cash and GPP plays for Saturday’s Week 3 action in college football!

The plays and research are based in creating the DFS contests at FantasySportsMarkets.com that feature Top 25 teams, no salary caps, and a roster bonus that could turn a $5 entry into their big GPP this Saturday into $100,000+. Plus, DFS at FSM is available in all 50 states and Canada!

WEEK 2 RECAP:

Hurts disappointed us all with a sad 14-18 for 259 and just three TDs (clearly kidding) and Tua continued his consistent 30+ point outings with four total TDs of his own. 

Meanwhile, Taylor dropped nearly 39 fantasy points on his impressive afternoon, and while Etienne crossed 100 total yards, the 53 rushing yards and no trips to the end zone hindered his performance a tad.

At WR, Jeudy continues to put up monster numbers, going 8 catches for 103 and three scores. Patmon averaged 18 YPC but only caught four passes and no touchdowns.

Lastly at TE, Ruckert ended up doing nothing and Sargent led the Hawkeyes with 13 carries, but only finished with 59 yards as the totals were split amongst six different players.

LET’S WIN IT FOR WEEK 3:

CASH GAME QB (besides Jalen Hurts): JOE BURROW – LSU QB

Hurts is your free space cash game QB with nine total TDs in two games. As he heads to UCLA vs a struggling Bruins team that has no desire for defense, Hurts is an automatic in both cash and GPPs. Find a place to differentiate somewhere else. Meanwhile, Burrow has catapulted himself in the Heisman standings after an impressive road win on the road at Texas, throwing for 471 yards and 4 TDs. The Tigers return home under the lights against Northwestern State, so a letdown spot doesn’t seem likely as Burrow can pad his Heisman hopeful stats.

TOURNAMENT QB: JACOB EASON – WASHINGTON QB

A home loss to Cal in Week 2 will have the rest of the field off of Eason, especially when guys like Hurts, Tua, Fields, Ehlinger and Burrow available. But I love the Huskies QB this week against the high flying Rainbow Warriors offense in a bounce-back spot at home. The Huskies are still favored by 21.5 and Eason will want to open some eyes facing Cole McDonald on the other side, who’s thrown from 799 yards and 8 TDs in his first two games of the season. SHOOTOUT IN SEATTLE! Time to jump on it.

CASH RB: ZACK MOSS – UTAH RB

Via Mike Renner of Pro Football Focus, Moss has 26 broken tackles so far in 2019, seven more than any other RB in the country. There’s a lot of former Iowa State RB turned Bears RB David Montgomery to his game and he’ll likely break the school’s all-time rushing record set by Eddie Johnson. It’s a breeze of a matchup vs Idaho State so watch Moss run and roll into your cash game lineups at FSM.

TOURNAMENT RB: JATARVIOUS WHITLOW – AUBURN RB

Choosing a favorite GPP RB this week proved to be a bit more challenging than initially expected. There’s a lot of variance this week, but we’ll go with Whitlow who has 47 carries in just two games so far this season. The Tigers welcome Kent State to Jordan-Hare Stadium and are 36 point home favorites. Whitlow has proven to be the workhorse back and should cruise to multiple touchdowns in the easiest matchup he’ll face this year.

CASH WR (not named Jerry Jeudy): JUSTIN JEFFERSON – LSU WR

Like Jalen Hurts, just go ahead and lock in Jeudy into your cash game lineups because every week he’ll go over 100 yards with multiple touchdown scores. But let’s go ahead and pair up Jefferson and Burrow in an advantageous matchup at home. Jefferson is also destroying on the Dominator rating with 37.4% of the targets and is tied with Terrace Marshall Jr with four TDs so far in 2019.

TOURNAMENT WR: DARRELL STEWART JR – MSU WR

Stewart found himself all over the field last week vs WMU and ended up with a brillant statline of 10 rec for 185 yards and a score. He’s dominated the snaps and targets for Michigan State with a 35.4% Dominator rating and should be called upon in the Spartans’ toughest matchup so far this season when they welcome 2-0 ASU to town. The Spartans still remain favorites by -14.5, but this Mark D’Antonio offense is more explosive than they’ve been in years past, and Stewart is a key reason why.

CASH TE: COLBY PARKINSON – STANFORD TE

It’s very difficult in college football to find consistency at the TE spot, but Parkinson tends to be that guy, especially in big games. Last week on the road at USC, his number was called upon to the tune of 7 rec for 89 yards. He’s due to get into the end zone and should have his chance against UCF in what’s expected to be a high scoring affair.

TOURNAMENT TE: JACOB BREELAND – OREGON TE

Breeland was a monster vs Nevada last week with 4 catches, 112 yards and a TD last week and will have his number called upon at home against Montana. He’s been consistent each week with four receptions and with the Ducks looking to pile it on, Justin Herbert can find ole reliable not just in the red zone, but in the middle of the field as well.
