CFB Tailgate – Sat 9/18 – Night

Welcome to the TILT slate for the 7PM College Football Slate…

College Football DFS

Virginia vs UNC

This.  This is the game that we sorely lacked on the early slate.  A shootout with two good teams and two fantasy friendly Quarterbacks.  You know Sam Howell and you should expect Sam Howell to have a highly productive game at home.  So far Josh Downs has led the way with 35% target share, he’s gonna make it so that we’re paying down at RB if you lock in this combination but they’re really hard to overlook.

Tulane vs Ole Miss

Pace, Pace, Pace.  This game is all about high volume on both sides and should be a high scoring affair that features the QB-WR correlation we want in Matt Corrall and Dontario Drummond for the Rebels.  Duece Watts ($5,800) for Tulane leads the way offensively to see a high volume of targets and provide good game stack value.

  1. Sam Howell (UNC)
  2. Matt Corrall (Ole Miss)
  3. Brennan Armstrong (UVA) … Rushing upside allows him to be played naked on UVA
  4. Haazig Daniels (Air Force) – Value

Everyone is going to be on the same QB tonight and for really good reason.  I think Howell is your must start up top at QB but there’s no reason to expect Matt Corrall to falter unless you are switching over Ealy on the ground game — that said, it’s a spot the Ole Miss passing attack should thrive.

Brennan Armstrong can and should be able to run the ball vs UNC for some rushing yardage upside.  He is the only way UVA can pull off the road win today in my mind.  By going Howell+Armstrong you can get the UVA/UNC game stack while then going Ealy/Roberts at RB.

  1. Brad Roberts (Air Force)
  2. Noah Cain (Penn State)
  3. Austin Jones (Stanford)
  4. Jerrion Ealy (Ole Miss)

Running Back is really bad tonight.  Stanford RB Austin Jones isn’t necessarily considered a work horse back but should get enough work today against the really bad Vanderbilt rush defense to deliver a good game even on the road.

Brad Roberts and the Air Force ground attack is up against a tough Utah State rush defense, but they’ll get it so much that volume makes him worthy of the $7100 cost.

Ealy is the home RB in a major high scoring game and should be considered strongly.

  1. Jaray Jenkins (LSU) — Because we need salary relief Jenkins is the #1 WR based on value.  LSU should be able to move the ball through the air and get him involved along with Boutte, but Jenkins sub 4k price is an automatic lock it in and go spot.
  2. Dontario Drummond (Ole Miss)
  3. Josh Downs (UNC)
  4. Duece Watts (Tulane)
  5. Parker Washington (Penn State) — Another value WR

Jenkins price against CMU is ridiculous.  LSU is going to throttle Central Michigan tonight and should have 3+ passing touchdowns as a team, with one going to him for sure.
