College Surprise Fantasy POW – Week 14

November 27th, 2013 No comments

My QB’s of the Week
BJ Denker, Arizona • Marquise Williams, North Carolina • James Franklin, Missouri

QB BJ Denker (Arizona) – In last week’s upset of Oregon, BJ Denker resembled more of a Heisman candidate than true contender Marcus Mariota was able to show. Denker went on to pass for 178 yds, rush for 102 yds and deliver the biggest win of the Rich Rodriguez era in Tucson. Dual-threat QB’s are always a nice option in this blog and Denker fully fits that profile as he has 25 total td’s in 2013. It will be interesting to see what he has in store this Saturday against bitter Rival ASU.

QB Marquise Williams (North Carolina) – When’s the last time a North Carolina/Duke football game meant more than a basketball matchup? How about never! After starting the season 1-5, the Tar Heels have rattled off 5 consecutive wins and now have a chance to play spoiler against Duke who is just a win away from earning a berth in the ACC Championship. If UNC is going to pull out the win, the steady hand and feet of backup Marquise Williams will have to step to the forefront again after he torched Old Dominion a week ago with 469 total yards and 5 td’s. We like the Tar Heels in this meeting and believe Williams’ effort last week can be repeated. Read more…

My QB’s of the Week

Stephen Morris, Miami • Brayle Brown, ULM • Maty Mauk, Missouri

QB Stephen Morris (Miami, FL) – While Stephen Morris threw 4 interceptions in last week’s matchup against UNC, he did surpass the 300 yard mark for a 2nd consecutive week. As far as the 4 interceptions go, he had just a total of 4 coming in so this was a bit of an aberration in our opinion. Next up is a meeting with a WF defense that has surrendered an avg of 336 ypg in the air over their past 3 contests. Look for Morris to reach that 300 yard plateau once again minus the abundance of turnovers.

QB Brayle Brown (ULM) – With defending SBC Player of the year Colton Browing expected to miss this weekend, Brayle Brown is the epitome of a Surprise Fantasy selection against Georgia St despite his 1-6 ratio on the year. The Panthers have surrendered 515 ypg against their FBS opponents so another dismal performance should be expected with Brown leading the way for ULM.

QB Maty Mauk (Missouri) – No James Franklin? No problem for MO as frosh Maty Mauk has proven to be a solid asset during his short term under center. After a 295 yd, 2 total td outing last week against Florida, Mauk and company now take on a South Carolina squad off an upset loss to Tennessee and playing their 3rd straight SEC game away from home. The Gamecocks are allowing 384 ypg on the road in 2013 and we believe that Mizzou’s offense will once again flourish this weekend. Read more…

College Surprise Fantasy POW – Week 7

My QB’s of the Week

Bo Wallace, Ole Miss • Derek Thompson, North Texas • Adam Kennedy, Arkansas St

QB Bo Wallace (Ole Miss) – After consecutive losses the Rebels need to get back on their feet this week vs Texas A&M. Their best opportunity for a win here would be by riding their dual-threat QB Bo Wallace who is off a 336 yd passing game last week against Auburn. Wallace can also be a ground threat with 3 rushing td’s on the year with double-digit carries in 4 of Ole Miss’ 5 games. The Aggies have a suspect defense to say the least allowing 483 ypg on the road this season so we like Wallace’s chances.

QB Derek Thompson (North Texas) – The Middle Tenn secondary has been vulnerable to the pass so far this season allowing 300+ yds in 3 contests this season. Toss in a QB in Derek Thompson who just passed for his 2nd 300 yd game of the season last week vs Tulane and you have an excellent Surprise Fantasy QB this week. Over the past 3 games Thompson has attempted 42 passes per game and we expect more of the same.

QB Adam Kennedy (Arkansas St) – While Adam Kennedy has just a 3-2 ratio on the season, we like his chances here against an Idaho defense that has allowed 537 ypg this season including an amazing 734 yds in their 61-14 loss to Fresno St. Kennedy meanwhile has completed at least 20 passes in each of his L/4 games (37-46-318 in their last game vs Mizzou) while also showing his dual-threat ability with double-digit carries in 3 of the L/4. Look for Kennedy to surpass the 300-yard pass mark here and quite possibly throw for as many td’s vs the Vandals as he has thrown for the full season.

College Surprise Fantasy POW – Week 5

My QB’s of the Week
Brett Smith, Wyoming • Nathan Scheelhaase, Illinois
• Keith Price, Washington

QB Brett Smith (Wyoming) – How well has Brett Smith done so far in 2013? How about being tied for 2nd in the nation in pass yards with 1,315! He also has added 299 rush (8.3). Still, many of you haven’t heard of him but if he’s available to pick up, now would be the time. This week the Cowboys get a favorable matchup with Texas St who were victimized for 434 yds in the air a week ago against Texas Tech. With a solid 13-3 ratio and his previously discussed passing yards, Smith should flourish again here.

QB Nathan Scheelhaase (Illinois) – While he had his share of struggles in his last game vs Wash when he threw for just 156 yds, we expect Scheelhaase to more resemble the QB that he was throughout the 1st two gms when he threw for a comb 728 yds with a 6-1 ratio. Miami (OH) was gashed in the air a few wks back vs Kentucky to the tune of 413 pass yds and while we don’t expect them to allow that much again here, a 300 yd performance out of Scheelhaase could be a safe bet.

QB Keith Price (Washington) – A change in scheme to the hurry-up spread offense has greatly benefited Keith Price thus far in the young season as he has a 7-1 ratio and has exceeded 300+ yds in 2 of his 3 games (would be 3 for 3 had he not been pulled early vs Idaho St). While Arizona’s defense has allowed just 312 ypg thus far this season, further analyzation shows that they have faced the likes of Northern Arizona, UNLV and UTSA, nobody near the caliber of the Huskies. Price should shine here.

Week 13 College Fantasy Waiver Wire Report

A special thanks to our friends at CollegeFootballGeek for providing us with their Waiver Wire Report for Week 13.
Need to bolster your roster?  Here is a look at the top college fantasy football prospects who may be available on the waiver wire.

QUARTERBACKS

Warning: The pickings are slim this week.  Hopefully, those of you still alive in your playoff run aren’t in need of a QB.  Here are a few desperation possibilities:

Andrew Luck, Stanford (vs. Notre Dame)
We all know how bad the ND defense is.  While Toby will gets his share of the workload, Luck should be good for a couple TDs of his own.  Think of him as a BCS-only option.

Taylor Potts, Texas Tech (vs. Baylor)
Is it possible that Potts is somehow floating out there on your wire?  If so, he’s worth snagging with Baylor up next.  Potts looked shockingly good against the Sooners last week and will likely get the start again this week.

Jeff Van Camp, Florida Atlantic (vs. Western Kentucky)
FAU faces a bad Western Kentucky squad.  If they decide to lean on the passing game, JVC could produce some nice stats.  If they decide to put the ball in the belly of Alfred Morris 30 times, then this could be a bust waiting to happen.  JVC is only an option is you are completely desperate at the QB position.

Quarterbacks

Kirk Cousins QB Michigan State vs. Purdue: 
This Spartan is coming off his best game of the season last week when he threw for 352 yards and 2 scores versus Western Michigan. This week he gets to participate in what should be a shoot out with the Boiler Makers of Purdue. The Spartans should be able to exploit the Purdue secondary early and often.
