Georgia vs. TCU FanDuel DFS Picks: Kenny McIntosh, Kendre Miller Headline National Championship Picks

The 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship brings potentially big money to your pockets with these Georgia vs. TCU DFS picks.

The 2023 College Football Playoff National Championship is here and so are your Georgia vs. TCU DFS picks. The Bulldogs and Horned Frogs battle for it all, while your DFS lineups need to be perfect.

Georgia vs. TCU: Top FanDuel DFS Picks To Target

As always, FanDuel gives you $60,000 to construct the best lineup possible.

MVP: Stetson Bennett, QB, Georgia ($16,000)

The goal with your DFS lineup is to ensure you get the maximum points while finding the one value play. Stetson Bennett is certainly not your value play, as he’s the most expensive player in this game.

Nevertheless, Bennett is a must-play because of his high-end potential and ability to throw for multiple touchdowns on any defense in front of him. Bennett will be highly-rostered, and you’d be best suited to stick him in your MVP spot (1.5x point modifier) to guarantee you don’t miss out on the closest thing to a “sure thing” in this game.

Flex: Kenny McIntosh, RB, Georgia

As far as running backs go, securing Kenny McIntosh is the easiest decision. McIntosh is the third on the team in total targets and still somehow averages over 12 yards per reception.

Considering he gets half of the touches out of the backfield but a heavy percentage of the team’s total targets, McIntosh is almost in play for your MVP modifier. Instead, stick him in your lineup and watch the points stack up.

Flex: Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia

Just a lone target separates Brock Bowers and Ladd McConkey as the most-targeted receiver on the Bulldogs’ roster. Bowers has turned one fewer target into three more catches and over 100 more yards than McConkey.

Therefore, Bowers is the pass-catching play from the Georgia side of the ball. Bowers has 56 receptions into 790 yards this year and six touchdowns, yet that’s off his career average in every metric. Against the Horned Frogs, Bowers should be able to use his size, speed, and receiving ability over the middle of the field.

Flex: Kendre Miller, RB, TCU

This is the biggest dilemma leading up to the national championship. Will Kendre Miller be healthy enough to play a full game for TCU, and is he healthy enough to store on your roster? Odds are we won’t know until closer to game time, so keep your lineup in mind as you go through the day.

Miller had previously scored in every game of the year for TCU before he got hurt and left the game against Michigan. He’s a speedy back with an acceleration that rivals any running back in the country. A one-cut back with top-notch speed and open-field elusiveness against one of the tougher run defenses in the country still favors Miller; that’s just how good he is.

Flex: Jared Wiley, TE, TCU

If there’s one area where the Georgia Bulldogs can be beaten on defense, it’s over the middle of the field where Missouri did their damage. Sure, Georgia likely looked over the Tigers earlier this season, but the fact remains, the best players for the Dawgs are on the perimeter and at safety.

Jared Wiley does his most damage over the middle of the field and in the short area. His massive frame is too big for linebackers to handle, and he’s a decent after-the-catch threat. Bank on him being touchdown-dependent, but after Miller and QB Max Duggan, the odds are highest in Wiley’s favor.

*This plan does depend on Miller’s health, however. If he is ruled out, immediately grab his backup, Emari Demercado ($10,000), and then you can afford to secure the services of either TCU WR Derius Davis ($7,500) or UGA WR Marcus Rosemy-Jacksaint ($8,000).
