This article is part of our College Football DFS: Weekday Slate series.
We've got four game on tap before the weekend, and both DraftKings and FanDuel have them set up as a Thursday slate and a Friday slate. We will tackle both of them in this article. Let's first take a look at the matchups via the spreads and Over/Under totals
Georgia Southern(-10.5) @ South Alabama O/U: 45.5
Temple (-11.5) @ East Carolina O/U: 49
UCF (-4) @ Cincinnati O/U: 60
New Mexico @ San Jose State (-6.5) O/U: 64.5
As you can see, there's a sharp contrast between Thursday and Friday when it comes to potential output, but the two days are independent slates on FanDuel and DraftKings, so there isn't a particular game you can fade. In situations like this I am going to pick one Thursday QB and one Friday QB for each game, and do the same with every other position. I'll also send up some flex candidates across both slates. Unless there's someone who really stands out at an alternate position, I'll often just use the opposing quarterback in the Super Flex position.
Anthony Russo, TEMP (DK $7,800, FD $10,200) @ ECU
Russo stunk it up against a tough Georgia Tech defense last week, but if we eliminate that stat line, you can see that Russo has played extremely well. Eastern Carolina isn't terrible against the pass (currently 79th in Passing Defense), but it's the perfect scenario for Russo to get Temple back into a pass-first groove.
