Week 3 of the college football season brings us one main Saturday slate on DraftKings, featuring 12 games. This $18 slate has a prize pool of $200,000, with $50,000 going to the winner. And, as always, you can expect the winning lineup to have at least one three-man stack. Let’s take a look at the best stacking options on the slate:
Alabama: QB Bryce Young ($9,200), WR John Metchie III ($7,100), Jameson Williams ($6,700):
In Week 1 against Miami, this Roll Tide trio went off, combining for 76.8 DraftKings points. They weren’t really needed last week against Mercer (shocking), but Florida should force the Big Three to be at their best once again. Metchie and Williams feel a little underpriced in this spot.
USC: QB Kedon Slovis ($7,200), WR Drake London ($7,900), WR Tahj Washington ($5,000):
We are going on the assumption that the USC players come out with a pronounced chip on their collective shoulder after head coach Clay Helton got the ax at the beginning of the week. Washington State is hardly a world-beater when it comes to pass defense, so this would have been a prime spot to target under any conditions. Be sure to check London’s status before lock, as he did have a back issue last week, but if all systems are a go, this is a potentially low-owned stack that could pay off big-time.
Ohio State: QB C.J. Stroud ($10,000), WR Chris Olave ($8,100), Garrett Wilson ($6,400):
Stroud is the highest-priced player on the slate, which could help to keep his ownership down a tad. But where Stroud is spendy, Wilson is again thrifty, and getting all three of these explosive playmakers into a lineup is not as challenging as it would seem with a 10K QB. The only worry here is whether Ohio State needs to throw all game long against an inferior opponent
