Week 12 of the college football season brings another monster slate, and a ton of value in DFS. With several high-volume cheap options, we can plug in a mix of low-salaried players and blue-chip guys like CJ Stroud.

Here are six players to consider for your DFS lineups this week:


CJ Stroud, Ohio State ($9,500 on DraftKings, $11,200 on FanDuel)Stroud continues to be one of the most dangerous QBs in college football DFS, putting up big numbers almost every week. That shouldn’t slow in Week 12 against the pitiful Michigan State pass defense.

Phil Jurkovec, Boston College ($4,500 on DK, $8,700 on FD) – Last week, in his second game back from a hand injury, Jurkovec threw for 310 yards and two touchdowns while running for 71 yards and three TDs. While we won’t see five touchdowns every week, Jurkovec is priced incredibly low on DraftKings, especially against an anemic Florida State D.

Running backs

Roschon Johnson, Texas ($3,800 on DK, $5,900 on FD) – Bijan Robinson is now out for the rest of the season with a dislocated elbow, and Johnson is slated to take over lead back duties. The price is certainly right for the new starter, who will run behind that same offensive line that helped Robinson to six 100-yard rushing games this year.

Keyvone Lee, Penn State ($3,600 on DK, $7,000 on FD) – Lee got surprising volume last week against Michigan, with 20 carries for 88 yards. He’s worth a start at that salary against Rutgers in Week 12.

Wide receivers

David Bell, Purdue ($7,300 on DK, $9,500 on FD) – While Bell will face a tougher defense in Northwestern this week, the incredible volume he sees makes him worth paying for. Bell has 48 receptions in the past five games, with two games over 200 yards receiving. His lack of touchdowns (just two over that span) keeps his salary lower than it should be.

Garrett Wilson, Ohio State ($6,800 on DK, $9,400 on FD) – You can almost play roulette with the Buckeyes’ trio of stud receivers, which includes Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Chris Olave, as CJ Stroud throws to all with regularity. A double stack could be in order, especially considering the cheap running back options in other games. If playing one, I’ll take Wilson, who has 53 receptions and 10 touchdowns on the season.
