FantasyAces College Football: Week 10 Picks

FantasyAces College Football: Week 10 Picks

This article is part of our FantasyAces College Football series.

Week 10 on FantasyAces features more designer signal callers than usual. This is good news for those who want a top quarterback who isn't owned by half of their opponents, like past weeks with Trevone Boykin and Seth Russell. Boykin is once again available, but I passed on the Heisman hopeful. I did spring for the second-highest priced quarterback, though, and drafted the No. 1 receivers of some other top guys. So, I will have a piece of all the best passing games.

QUARTERBACK

Pat Mahomes, Texas Tech (at West Virginia) - $6,200

Mahomes is my horse among a number of high upside passers on the slate Saturday. The sophomore averages 370 passing yards per game and a combined 3.7 touchdowns through the air and on the ground. He should best those numbers this week against West Virginia's 97th-ranked pass defense in a game that has the highest projected point total of the day.

Mike Bercovici, Arizona State (at Washington State) - $5,400

A dozen passers cost more than Bercovici in week 10, but he has a good chance to outscore most of them. Bercovici tossed five touchdown passes in two of his last three games and has a killer matchup with Washington State. This is a value play and hopefully pays off as a quarterback that isn't highly owned.

Others to consider: Trevone Boykin, Luke Falk, Greg Ward

RUNNING BACK

Wendell Smallwood, West Virginia (vs. Texas Tech) - $4,850

At this price, Smallwood is a no-brainer DFS play. Texas Tech has one of the lowest-ranked defenses in the country, routinely competing in wild shootouts with point totals that Vegas can't make too high. I expect at least 100 yards and a touchdown for the Mountaineer.

Ronald Jones II, USC (vs. Arizona) - $4,350

I'm dipping into this well for the second straight week. Jones payed off somewhat last Saturday, but there is so much more on tap. Trojans interim coach Clay Helton is on record saying the electric freshman's usage will continue to increase. If Jones gets the 15 to 20 touches I anticipate versus Arizona, this will be his breakout game.

Others to consider: Devontae Booker, Sony Michel, Demario Richard

WIDE RECEIVER

Josh Doctson, TCU (at Oklahoma State) - $6,550

I want a piece of the Horned Frogs offense anytime they are on the slate. Since I passed on Trevone Boykin at quarterback, Doctson is my guy here. When looking at the wide receivers available, there were two players that are so far ahead of the pack, I wanted to make room in my budget for both of them. Which leads me to the next guy.

Gabe Marks, Washington State (vs. Arizona State) - $5,800

After missing all of 2014 with an injury, Marks has lit up the Pac-12 this season. The dynamic junior ranks among the nation's top 10 with 63 receptions and his 11 touchdown catches are tied for third. Marks should have no problem adding to those totals against the Sun Devils' leaky secondary.

Others to consider: Shaq Washington, Jakeem Grant, Aaron Burbridge

TIGHT END

Josiah Price, Michigan State (at Nebraska) - $3,500

Price is back to full strength after missing two weeks with an ankle injury. He is a red-zone weapon, catching a touchdown pass in five of the six games he's appeared in this season.

Others to consider: Stephen Anderson, Joshua Perkins

FLEX

Darren Carrington, Oregon (vs. Cal) - $4,650

Carrington has hit the ground running for Oregon in his two games since returning from a suspension dating back to the end of last season. The sophomore has already amassed 232 yards and three scores in back-to-back wins for the Ducks. Now I have at least one player in the five highest projected scoring contests.

Ian Sadler, Texas Tech (at West Virginia) - $3,700

Sadler is another player that has missed time this season, suppressing his salary. And $3,700 is a criminally low price for a Texas Tech starting slot receiver in a game with an over/under of 79 points. Oh, and Sadler gives me a nice stack with Mahomes.
