College Football DFS: Night Slate Breakdown Week 3

This article is part of our College Football DFS: Night Slate series.

DraftKings' night slate and FanDuel's After Hours offering differ slightly, and we'll focus on the three games they have in common.  I'll give a nod to the unique games independent of my primary recommendations.

Sam Hartman, Wake Forest (DK $6,300, FD $8,000) @ NC State
