College Football DFS: Friday (Week 6)
Let me be the first to welcome you to College Football DFS Week 6. We have a nice, three-game appetizer on Friday night before diving into Saturday's main course. The Friday night slate (along with the odds) consists of:
Georgia Tech (-4) @ Louisville – Total: 57.5
Middle Tennessee State @ Marshall (-6.5) – Total: 52
Utah State @ BYU (-2.5) – Total: 55
As you can see, all of these games look like competitive matchups (spread within a touchdown) on paper. I'll highlight the best fantasy selections on FanDuel & DraftKings within that while also touching on some situations to monitor for your DFS squads.
TaQuon Marshall – Georgia Tech (FanDuel $10,000 / DraftKings $8,600)
Marshall is one of the most expensive options on both sites, but he's also one of the first names I'm locking into my lineups. We all know Georgia Tech loves to pound the ball with their triple-option attack, and TaQuon should see 20+ carries with multiple scoring opportunities within that. Oh yeah, maybe he could pass for 150 yards and a touchdown too? Either way, he's a safe bet for 20-25 fantasy points against a Louisville defense that allowed Indiana State and Western Kentucky to run for 175+ years apiece.
Also Consider: I'm looking between Jordan Love (UTST) and Brent Stockstill (MTSU) as Super-Flex pairings with TaQuon Marshall. They are similar in many ways, both playing for teams that like to throw the ball and find
