This weekend's slate of college football games features just three matchups between two ranked opponents, a sharp come-down after the high of last week's loaded Saturday of games. Washington and Oregon face off at 3:30 PM ET in a game that may ultimately put the nail in the coffin for the PAC 12's long-shot hopes of getting a team into the College Football Playoff. Then, the marquee game for the night slate of games is between two Big Ten rivals: Michigan and Penn State. Penn State has yet to lose a game this season while Michigan's 2019 campaign has been disappointing out of the gate. Head coach Jim Harbaugh has failed to win the "big games" during his tenure at Michigan, and if another disappointment against a top-10 opponent doesn't put him on the hot seat, I'm not sure what could at this point. Meanwhile, the DraftKings main slate of games is headlined by a few injuries at key positions that have opened up massive value spots for DFS lineups, while allowing players to pay up for some of the most reliable fantasy producers in the entire country. Best of luck to everyone, and I hope this article helps steer you in the right direction when building your week eight fantasy lineups!

There is one fundamental difference between NFL DFS and College Football DFS, and that is lineup construction. A college football removes the tight end and defense positions from a lineup and replaces them one super flex position. The super flex position can be filled by a quarterback, running back, or wide receiver. On nearly every single slate throughout the year rostering a second quarterback in the super flex position will be optimal in both cash games and tournaments. Keep this in mind all year when building lineups.
