Sample FanDuel Lineups
FanDuel Lineup Configurations
Cash – I started this team with a combination of the Western Kentucky QB/WR because they throw the ball about as much as anyone in the NCAA. I opted to go with cheaper running backs, who have good potential, which allowed me to get the quarterback/wideout combo I wanted. Listenbee should have a larger role on offense with Gray doubtful, and Hollins’ role on offense will likely grow this season, as well. Last, I punted my tight end with Reeves, who is a big target that Duke likes to throw touchdowns to.
GPP – I opted to go a bit contrarian here and use an extremely cheap quarterback, which most people tend not to do. McCrary is a small underdog in one of the highest scoring games of the slate, which means there will be points scored and he’ll likely be throwing. I spent a good chunk of change for my RBs, who both have great upside, and are also fairly consistent. Epps is the most reliable of the three receivers, as Hollins is a deep threat and Maye is a complete unknown right now. Regardless, all three have great upside, but they also have loads of risk. Last, I paid up for the tight end, which doesn’t often happen, but believe me, Jonnu Smith is the exception to that rule.
Sample Draftkings Lineups
Draftkings Lineup Configurations
Cash – I love using dominant quarterbacks in CFB, and I opted to pair each of them with one of their top targets in Hollins and Dangerfield respectively. I used a pair of Idaho players, who are entirely too cheap as a bit of salary relief players. That allowed me to play Ouellette, who is the focal point of the Ohio offense. Slanina is extremely cheap, and he should get loads of playing time with Gray doubtful. Last, I used Jonnu Smith, who is the exception to the tight end rule in college football.
GPP – Again, I used two dominant quarterbacks in this lineup, and paired them each with their top receiving option. I opted to save my money at running back (after spending up on my QB/WR combos) and I took two guys, who each have loads of upside for their prices. Penny should get a large amount of touches for Idaho, while Wilson is a home run threat for Duke. Again, I used Epps, who is underpriced, while I ended the team with Scheu and Maye, who should both have sizable roles on offense.
A very simple, but good start to DFS research is to look at the over/unders and odds. Obviously you want your players in games where Vegas believes the game will be high scoring and on winning teams, while your defenses should come from games they believe will be low scoring.
