College Football DFS 101: Week 9 Preview

Posted on October 24, 2014 by chris feery

Hard to believe that it’s Week 9 already, we have crossed the halfway point of the regular season and the action gets more intense as each week passes, both on the field and in DFS land. Time to get our lineups set, let’s start by taking a look at what our friends at FD and DK have in store for this Saturday:


FD $60k Sat CFB Hail Mary (Early)

  • $25 entry for 2,758 players, paying out top 479 with 6k to 1st.



DK CFB $40k Tailgate (Early)

  • $27 buy-in for 1,680 entrants, pays out top 330 with $10k for 1st.


Wow, both sites are kicking it up a notch as the season goes on. The Hail Mary is up to a huge 2,758 player tourney and DK is really pushing the envelope with $10k to 1st place! A couple of other notes on both tourneys:

Week 9 Cram Session: News, Notes & Injury Updates

Posted on October 24, 2014 by Kevin Mount

For the third week in a row, the news was pretty light.  That's a remarkable run at this point in the season, when injuries to key players are usually making major headlines.  Let's hope we can keep the good vibes rolling along into November.

Here is a quick look at the news from the week...



ACC:

 

Georgia Tech: RB Zach Laskey will not play this week against Pitt. It’s anybody’s guess who will get the carries.

 

Clemson: RB Adam Choice is out for the season. WR Charone Peake is expected to miss this week.

College Fantasy Football: Week 9 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

Posted on October 23, 2014 by Joe Arpasi and Ryan Moss

Alright season-long fantasy managers, it's time to set those weekly lineups!  Below are some picks to chew on from CFG Staffers Ryan Moss, Mike Bainbridge and Joe Arpasi. 

Note: We encourage debate amongst of staff, therefore you are likely to see differing Start-Sit opinions regarding specific players.  These opinions also may not match up with the FFCPI.  Remember, our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible, so that you can form your own opinion.

(These selections are geared towards traditional (season-long) league formats.  However, DFS players could glean some valuable nuggets of info as well.)



QUARTERBACKS



Start’Em



Paxton Lynch, Memphis vs. SMU 
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
The SMU defense is really bad and Lynch has had two solid fantasy performances in a row. Having another good day this week is very likely for Lynch.


Tyler Murphy, Boston College vs. Wake Forest
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
Murphy finds ways to get it done, whether it’s with his legs or his arm. He isn’t going to put up a huge number, but is a solid consistent performer with a good matchup this week.


Andrew Hendrix, Miami Ohio vs. Kent State
Staff Pick: Ryan Moss
With another good performance Hendrix becomes a weekly must start. I’m betting that he will have another monster game against a very poor Kent State defense. Hendrix has thrown for 300+ yards in each of the past three games and has scored multiple touchdowns in every game. Look for a lot more of the same this week.
