Saturday's 11-game slate is maybe my favorite of the season. There are several games that we can write off right off the bat, making it easier focus in on a handful of the juicier matchups.
Games to target, games to avoid
A quick glance at this slate and we can identify the landmines. Games like Georgia-Kentucky, Missouri-Florida, Utah-Arizona State, and even South Carolina-Mississippi are all matchups with low totals, strong defenses, or both.
On the flip side, all of my lineups will feature pieces from the Oklahoma State-Baylor, Syracuse-Wake Forest, Nebraska-Ohio State, and Louisville-Clemson. Games like Penn State-Michigan and Georgia Tech-North Carolina feature some interesting one-off pieces, too, but aren't as appealing from a stack perspective.
Listed below are some helpful tools to help guide your lineup construction, as well as a cheat sheet and my write-ups for each position.
Eric Dungey, Syracuse ($8,400) at Wake Forest
In recommending Dungey I'm probably jinxing him from playing a full four quarters. For the purpose of this exercise, let's assume he makes it through the whole game. Dungey on his own is a force, averaging 31.1 fantasy points per game (8th in FBS among quarterbacks with seven or more games played). When it comes to Wake Forest's defense, only two other Power 5 teams are giving up more fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks (Pittsburgh and North Carolina. ACC! ACC!). Dungey brings a nice floor thanks
