Best DFS Picks for Week 2 in College Football – September 11, 2021
Week 2 of the college football season is here, and the year is already off to a great start.
There were upsets and dozens of performances by individuals that carried teams to victory over Labor Day weekend. I could list the biggest winners for days and weeks, but there is only so much time before your daily fantasy lineups are locked in.
Get your notepad out and get ready for Week 2. Here are your top picks in DFS for the upcoming college football weekend.
Max Duggan, QB, TCU ($8,800)
I am digging some hacksaw Max Duggan this weekend for TCU.
The Horned Frogs signal-caller is also their most reliable rusher in the backfield. He brings an old-school style of football where he can run over some of the top defenders in the country.
Gary Patterson loves his defense for the Horned Frogs, and they will be licking their chops for the Cal Bears. This matchup has one of the lower point totals of the weekend (48.5), but TCU should do most of the scoring.
He is the perfect running quarterback that can carry your fantasy team towards greatness. A few passing and rushing scores are possible in this non-conference tilt.
Isaiah Spiller, RB, Texas A&M ($6,700)
Isaiah Spiller will have a chance to lead the way at running back and become RB1 when the dust is all settled.
The Aggies rushing attack will be a challenge to slow down for all opposing defenses. Colorado’s run defense will have its hands full due to the combination of size and speed.
Spiller already got 2021 off to a nice start. Check out his stats from week one.
- 17 carries
- 113 rushing yards
- 2 receptions
- 24 receiving yards
The potential Doak Walker winner this season will be a consistent pass-catcher.
Spiller didn’t score last week, but he makes his hay at the goal-line for A&M and scored 19 times over his two previous seasons.
The Aggies could win this one going away, but Colorado will stay around for at least three quarters. That is plenty of time for Spiller to pile up nearly 200 yards of offense with a pair of scores.
There is a ton of speed on the field, so feel free to take fliers on Devon Achane and Ainias Smith. Both are game-breakers that could take a pass or rushing attempt to the house. Spiller is the perfect workhorse back that can tote the pigskin 25-plus times.
He will get an NFL-like size workload, and Texas A&M will rely on him all season. Take this stud back with confidence and reap the benefits as he should post a 20-plus point performance.
Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State ($5,900)
I love the Buckeyes this weekend at home against the Ducks due to their quick-strike ability. They can score half their touchdowns this season on five plays or fewer types of drives.
Suffice to say, they’re one of the most explosive college football offenses in 2021.
They have a bevy of studs, and Chris Olave is worth a look, but he is among the most expensive players.
Garrett Wilson is just as talented and has been prone to making the home-run plays with more ease. The Buckeye number two option snagged a 56-yard touchdown reception last week, and he should do great in this spot.
Seriously, the kid can ball.
Oregon should keep up, offensively speaking with all of their weapons, so this is a game you need to use to your advantage. The Ducks could be prone to a slow start, allowing players like Olave and Wilson to cash in on early big plays.
Mykael Wright is the top corner for Oregon, and most believe he will be shadowing Olave or at least covering that side of the field more often than not. Wilson can move around at the line of scrimmage and has had a knack for coming down with the big catch despite playing under 6-feet.
Grab both wideouts if you can, but Wilson will put up plenty of points to put your lineup towards the top of the leaderboard.
Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State ($7,000)
The Nittany Lions have had several stud wideouts over the years. KJ Hamler, Allen Robinson, and Chris Godwin are three playing Sunday football, but Jahan Dotson is the next great stud.
Dotson hauled in two receptions for over 50 yards on two of his better highlights this past weekend. He ended up with over 100 yards and a score on five catches.
Doubling him up in the secondary or showing bracket coverage won’t limit the amount of production.
Clifford forced him the ball more times than not, and nothing will change in their home opener. Penn State is a real dark horse to reach the College Football Playoff after their victory over Wisconsin.
James Franklin has utilized the top talents on his team to the best ability, and Dotson is a performer that will continue to eat in this offense. This Nittany Lion could turn out to be the top wideout of the weekend. Draft with confidence as your WR1.
Tay Martin, WR, Oklahoma State ($6.900)
Death, taxes, and head coach Mike Gundy favoring one wide receiver more often than not.
Tylan Wallace the past two seasons was remarkable for the Cowboys, and now Tay Martin will look to do the same after his solid Week 1 performance.
Oklahoma State may not be as potent as the days of Justin Blackmon and Brandon Weeden connecting for deep scores, but they have a favorable matchup at home.
The Oklahoma State offense in Stillwater has been formidable over the years, and Tulsa was upset last week by an FCS squad in UC-Davis.
Expect a competitive game where Oklahoma State will need to throw the ball to come out victorious. Martin is the featured player in this offense and should thrive against a Tulsa defense searching for answers.
Week 2 College Football DFS Advice
These games are all slated for early morning and afternoon, so be sure to get them locked in before kickoff.
Always be on the lookout for injury updates, and Week 1 was a decent indicator of showing us which players are in good graces with the coaches.
There are some great options to choose from, but these players will allow you to come out on the winning side. Best of luck this weekend, and enjoy.
