2022 Week 3 College DFS Player Picks

mike wright vanderbilt

Schedules aren’t quite normal yet as week 3 presents quite a few mismatches, but not as bad as the first 2 weeks of the season. 

We’re one week away from normal! In week 4 we’ll have the return of Thursday night football and conferences like the MAC will be mostly in conference play with fantasy players ready to breakout all over the place!

We’ve got some potential key returnees this week with Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Rasheen Ali – although we don’t know how much they’ll play. 

Time to use our rankings tool to optimize those lineups! Any questions!? We have a FREE discord for start/sit questions. Good luck this week!

Early Games - Saturday

Top Starts

These players are the anchor to your lineup. Anyone listed in best bets is typically a high price that you’re paying for excellent value. While you don’t win many matchups on these alone, you’ve got to hit on these picks.

Value Picks

Middle tier players are another must-hit scenario where you’re commonly identifying players with a higher propensity for volume.

Sleeper Picks

When identifying a long shot or sleeper, sometimes people can get lucky. We like to play probability. So we’re looking to identify high-scoring games that a WR3 might pop for example.
