2023 College Football Week 2 Streamers

2023 College Football Week 2 Streamers

Week one was full of surprises, but I'm back with College Football streamers for Week 2 of the 2023 season. Whether you won all your matchups, you lost all your matchups, or it was some of both, you need to remember that it was only one week. Don't do anything drastic off of one week of data that will adversely affect you the rest of the season. I'm sure some of you felt the disappointment of Frank Harris, Ja'Quinden Jackson, or Emeka Egbuka amongst others. These are examples of players who are too talented to abandon all hope already.

That also doesn't mean that you shouldn't be playing the waiver wire this early in the season to improve your team. This is a streamer article, but at this part of the season, I'm looking to add players who can help you this week and who can continue carrying value further into the season.

Almost as soon as I submitted last week's article, Fantrax updated the rostership percentages. Therefore, I'll be going back to the original plan of recommending players under 30% owned.

Read on to see who that includes in the Week 2 article of the college football streamers.

Brayden Schager, QB, Hawaii Warriors

Hawaii may be 0-2 in the record book, but the Warriors keep finding themselves being a recommendation in my streamers article. For good reason too, as the team has seemingly leaned into the run-n-shoot offense.

Last week in a challenging matchup versus Stanford, quarterback Brayden Schager threw the ball 53 times and ran it another 10 times! The team ran 69 offensive plays total and he was personally involved with 63 of them!

He has already thrown for 706 yards and six touchdowns through two games. He hasn't yet been effective as a rusher and has negative yards at this point.

Imagine how fantasy-viable Schager could be if he gets the rushing game going as well. This very well could be the week we get to see that aspect of his game. After competitive games against Vanderbilt and Stanford, Hawaii now takes on the Albany Great Danes.

Albany has also played two games this season including one against FBS level Marshall. While that game was close with Marshall winning 21-17, Marshall runs a very different offense than Hawaii.

I think we'll see more of the same from Schager as a passer this week with over 300 passing yards and multiple touchdowns. Schager is someone you can add at this point and feel confident playing in most matchups.

Jalen Buckley, RB, Western Michigan Broncos

One of my favorite aspects of Fantrax is that they offer a percentage drafted next to the players. Jalen Buckley was 0% drafted as a running back for Western Michigan.

It's easy to understand based on last season's production. Buckley only played in four games last season so that he could redshirt. In those four games, he took nine carries for only 27 yards.

However, Thursday night was his coming out party as the fantasy running back to own for the Broncos.

Over two months ago when I wrote the MAC preview, I recommended Zahir Abdus-Salaam for Western Michigan as the player to roster. Abdus-Salaam actually had a nice game in his own right with 20 carries for 73 yards and a touchdown. But he was vastly outshined by Jalen Buckley. Buckley took 30 carries for 194 yards and a touchdown.

My last sentence from the June MAC article was, "Watch this situation for a running back to emerge and grab him when you need one." I feel confident saying that Buckley has emerged as that running back that needs to be grabbed. The next couple of weeks are tougher matchups, but I think he can be used this week at Syracuse as an option.

Kobe Paysour, WR, North Carolina Tar Heels

Last week, I recommended Hawaii wide receiver Pofele Ashlock as a streaming option. He delivered and is still only 21% rostered. He could have been the recommendation again, but I wanted to take a detour from Hawaii.

That detour leads me to North Carolina where receiver Kobe Paysour seems to be the player who has stepped up as the most productive receiver for the Tar Heels.

If you missed it, the presumed favorite to be the primary receiver for the Tar Heels, Devontez Walker, is currently ineligible to play due to NCAA transfer issues. Another transfer receiver, Nate McCollum is dealing with an injury that kept him out last Saturday. In their absence, Kobe Paysour emerged as the top option for quarterback Drake Maye in the battle of the Carolinas.

Against an SEC-caliber defense in South Carolina, Paysour caught seven passes for 66 yards and a touchdown. This week North Carolina plays an Appalachian State team that they should have even more success against.

Dallin Holker, TE, Colorado State Rams

Dallin Holker's best season so far was his freshman season. That season he had 19 receptions, 235 receiving yards, and a touchdown. That was way back in 2018! That first season was while he was still a member of the Brigham Young Cougars football team.

Then, as members of the Mormon faith do, he spent two seasons away on a mission. He spent another couple of seasons at Brigham Young, with limited success but decided to transfer this offseason. He has since transferred to Colorado State where he had an early favorite for catch of the season.

Colorado State started the season with what may be their most difficult defensive matchup against Washington State. In that matchup, Holker finished with five receptions, 47 receiving yards, and a touchdown. The good news is that with excellent receivers in Tory Horton and Justus Ross-Simmons, teams are unable to key on Holker in the passing game.

The upcoming game is against a Colorado team, that while they won an impressive game, gave up 42 points to TCU. Feel free to use him in that game as it should be very high scoring.

Florida Gators Defense

If you watched the Thursday night football game between Florida and Utah in primetime, you're probably questioning this recommendation. Utah was able to win that game despite playing multiple backup quarterbacks. But as I mentioned last week, playing defenses in college fantasy football is all about picking the right matchups. Florida has a great matchup this week against McNeese State.

McNeese State is an FCS-level school that played against another FCS-level school in Tarleton State last weekend. McNeese State was beaten 52-34 in that matchup. Last season, McNeese State played one game against an FBS-level opponent. That opponent was Rice University. In that game, McNeese State lost 52-10. Say what you want about the current state of the Florida Gators, I'm very confident they're a better team than Tarleton State and Rice. This should be an easy bounce-back game for the Gators and a good choice for your fantasy defense.
