Cardale Jones will disappoint in DFS games
Chances are, you’re going to try to get Christian McCaffrey into your early slate of CFB lineups this week, and to do so, you’re going to need to fill in some value plays and sleepers throughout the rest of your lineups. McCaffrey ($8,300 DraftKings, $8,900 FanDuel) has rushed for over 100 yards in each of the last six games and could challenge Barry Sanders’ all-purpose yardage record.
Stanford is playing a Colorado defense that has given up 5.8 yards per carry to Pac-12 offenses this year, and has given up three rushing touchdowns per game in three of their last five games.
Conversely, Leonard Fournette will face his toughest matchup all season, but that hasn’t driven his price tag down much on DraftKings or FanDuel. The sophomore running back who hasn’t rushed for LESS than 150 yards in a game this season, is still the highest priced back.
Alabama will be a challenge, however, as they’ve allowed just four rushing touchdowns all season, and have allowed more than 100 yards rushing just twice this year.
