FanDuel College Football Week 9

Breaking down the FanDuel CFB main slate

FanDuel’s Week 9 Main Slate features 16 games and will kickoff at noon ET.

One of the most notable aspects of this slate is how many teams are facing tough defensive matchups. 27 of the 32 teams have a Vegas team total lower than their average PPG this season and for 11 teams, the Vegas team total is more than 30% below their scoring average to date. Throw many of those fantasy PPG totals out the window this week.

Weather may also be a major storyline. Over half of the games are expected to be played in the rain. Sometimes wet weather is just a minor inconvenience but other times it is so extreme that it has a major impact on the passing game (like Kentucky-Georgia last week). For now, it may make sense to use this factor only to break ties between equal players. As we get closer to kickoffs on Saturday, we will want to monitor the weather and be ready to make some lineup changes at quarterback and wide receiver if conditions end up being extreme.

This slate breakdown will go position-by-position, highlighting the top options and giving an overview of the toughest choices we face this week. The top options are broken down into two categories. Players listed as Core Plays are those who you can play with high confidence in both cash games and tournaments. Players listed as Worth Considering are viable as cost-saving options in your main lineup or high-upside options for tournaments
