Top CFB DFS Projections Week 4

Pass Yards

Shedeur Sanders - QB, Colorado

The most exciting story in CFB right now is surely what’s going on in Colorado. Deion “Primetime” Sanders took over as coach this offseason and immediately turned around a program that’s been dead for years. The team is led by none other than Coach Prime’s son, Shedeur.

Last week the Sanders family staged an incredible comeback and OT win against in-state rival Colorado State. This week Colorado faces their strongest challenge yet in #10 Oregon. Sanders is projected to throw 335.5 yards, about 80 short of his current season average.

Bo Nix  - QB, Oregon

On the other side of this highly anticipated PAC 12 matchup is another Heisman hopeful, Bo Nix and Oregon. Unlike Colorado, Oregon has performed well in recent years, largely in part to quarterback Bo Nix. 

Although most of the hype in this game will be around Colorado, Nix and his squad appear to be the more skilled unit. He’s projected 315.5 which is 30 yards higher than his average through the last 5 games (including last season). If Oregon want to silence Primetime and establish themselves in the conference, Bo Nix will have to deliver.

Rush Yards

Audric Estime - RB, Notre Dame

The Fighting Irish are off to a great start this season behind transfer QB, Sam Hartman. Another key element to their success in running back, Audric Estime, who has already racked up over 500 yards of offense in just 4 games.

This week against Ohio State will be no small challenge for Estime and crew. Through 4 games, Estime is averaging about 130 rushing yards per game. Against OSU he’s projected at 74.5. If the Irish want to keep their dreams alive, Estime will need to do something special.

Caleb Williams - QB, USC

Another PAC 12 quarterback and another favorite in the Heisman race. Caleb Williams has been impressing fans and NFL scouts for a while now in the NCAA. With nearly 900 passing yards in only 3 games, it’s clear why.

But Williams is also known to use his legs when he sees the opportunity, which is one of the reasons why people compare him to the likes of Patrick Mahomes. This season he’s rushed for just over 60 yards in 3 games. In Week 4 he’s projected at 22.5, so right around his average. To cement his spot in the Heisman running, he’ll have to shine with more than just his arm talent this year. Keep an eye on Williams to break out with his legs in the coming weeks.

Receiving Yards

Xavier Weaver - WR Colorado

We hate to cover so much in just one game, but like we said, this drama in Colorado is the hottest story in CFB right now and we know you love it.

Xavier Weaver has played a huge role in the Buffaloes’ success on offense this season as he’s been tearing up defenses one catch at a time. In 3 games he’s caught for nearly 400 yards (about 128 per game). This week, his co-star, Travis Hunter, is out with an injury sustained from a late hit last week against CSU. With that knowledge, it’s more than likely Shedeur will likely be relying more heavily on Weaver against 10th ranked Oregon.

Malik Nabers - WR, LSU

A college football preview just wouldn’t be right without at least one mention of an SEC team. So all of you down south can calm down now, here it is. Malik Nabers from LSU put up an insane game last week against SEC opponent Mississippi State. Nabers caught for 239 yards, including a long of 48 on the day, putting his season total to nearly 400 yards in 3 games.

Prior to that breakout performance, Malik averaged 77 yards per game. This week LSU face 2-1 Arkansas and will look to Nabers to carry the team again. With a few more performances like last week, Malik Nabers’s draft stock will skyrocket, and he might even be a dark horse for Heisman finalist.
