After a week where it seemed like every significant College Football DFS player was on a bye, we return to Week 7 with the majority of our studs motivated and ready to finish the year off strong. Week 7 features Oklahoma and Texas in the Red River Shootout and LSU taking on the Florida Gators. While FanDuel has hiked the prices up on plenty of players, there is no lack of value in Week 7 for you to bring home the dough.

Friday Night College Football DFS Bargains
Justin Herbert, Oregon
Draft Kings Price: $7,400
FanDuel Price: $10,000
I’m not throwing Justin Herbert in here as a player that’s going to go crazy against Colorado but he is the only consistent player available on Friday. Herbert is a clear step up from Patrick O’Brien, Sheriron Jones, and Bryce Perkins given their matchups this week or lack of consistency. Herbert averages just under 20 points per game and is a must-play in one or both FanDuel and Draft Kings.
N’Kosi Perry, Miami
Draft Kings Price: $6,600
FanDuel Price: $7,000
Miami looked phenomenal last week after Jarren Williams left the game against Virginia Tech with a shoulder injury. That’s very much due to N’Kosi Perry’s arm talent that is just a step above what Willaims has to offer. While originally thought that both Williams and Perry would see time, Williams was ruled out against Virginia and Perry will see all the snaps unless Tate Martell finally gets a chance.
DeeJay Dallas, Miami
Draft Kings Price: $6,800
DeeJay Dallas is a secret to no one but, just like Justin Herbert, he’s a clear step above anything else that the Friday night slate has to offer. Dallas is as consistent as they come and is the safest option on the Miami roster considering the change in quarterback. Even with Virginia’s tough defense, Dallas will dedicate all he’s got to secure a win and keep the Canes in contention for the Coastal Division.
Ahmari Davis, New Mexico
Draft Kings Price: $5,800
FanDuel Price: $7,900
While New Mexico’s offensive system can prevent many players from being consistent contributors, it hasn’t been an issue for Ahmari Davis. Davis averages 16.8 points per game and has gotten 18+ carries in his last three contests. He also takes on a Colorado State defense that gives up plenty of points to just about any offense that they play and will get over 18 carries once again this week.
Dante Wright, Colorado State
Draft Kings Price: $6,400
Despite the unnecessary confusion at quarterback for Colorado State, Dante Wright has been electric all season long for the Rams and is now carrying the team in the absence of Warren Jackson. DraftKings has a low price on Wright’s head and will open doors for a lot of owners to make money off of him.
Nate Craig-Myers, Colorado State
Draft Kings Price: $5,200
FanDuel Price: $7,900
Nate Craig-Myers is another player that has stepped up for the Rams in this time of injury bugs. Craig-Myers has gotten double-digit points in each of the last three contests and isn’t looking to drop back while Warren Jackson remains sidelined. Mike Bobo has mentioned using two quarterbacks but Justice McCoy doesn’t deserve to take up too much time this game after an awful outing last week. Craig-Myers is a trustworthy option against a weak New Mexico defensive unit.
Jeff Thomas, Miami
Draft Kings Price: $5,400
FanDuel Price: $7,500
Although he hasn’t been as productive this season as he was the last, I’m still rolling out the Illinois-transfer tonight against Virginia. N’Kosi Perry loved Thomas all last season and loved him last week in Perry’s return to the spotlight. I picked Miami over UVA this week in the CFF: On-Campus Podcast and Thomas needs to make big plays to do so. Thomas is a cheap option on both FanDuel and Draft Kings this weekend and should be a member of anybody’s lineups.
Brevin Jordan, Miami
Draft Kings Price: $4,900
Sometimes Draft Kings misses the mark on pricing and Brevin Jordan is an obvious misfire on their part. Jordan leads the Hurricanes in receptions and receiving yards this season and is clearly the most talented receiver on the Canes roster. I don’t expect too much to be different for Jordan with a change of quarterback given how excellent a playmaker he has been all season long.
Mycah Pittman, Oregon
Draft Kings Price: $4,000
FanDuel Price: $5,500
A rare occasion where both Draft Kings and FanDuel are both cheap on a relevant player. Justin Herbert is dying for a halfway decent receiver and Pittman proved he could step up against Cal last week with 43 yards and four receptions. Pittman was fresh off an injury last week and will see more touches this week against a weak Colorado defensive unit. He’s listed as a two option to Jaylon Redd but that didn’t matter much last weekend against one of the best secondaries in college football.
