DraftKings College Football: Week 9 Main Slate Picks
DraftKings College Football: Week 9 Main Slate Picks

This article is part of our DraftKings College Football series.

Welcome to our breakdown for the Week 9 main slate over on DraftKings. We have a 10-game slate that features a wide variety of teams and matchups. Games like Houston versus South Florida, Oklahoma versus Kansas State, and Iowa State versus Texas Tech all profile as high scoring affairs that should be drawing plenty of our attention from a fantasy perspective. Then there are projected slugfests like Georgia versus Florida, Penn State versus Iowa, and Clemson versus Florida State that have the type of low implied totals that may not garner much fantasy appeal. Without further adieu, let's get to the main course and break down this week's main slate. Listed below are our tools followed by a cheat sheet and my position-by-position breakdowns.

Quarterback

D'Eriq King, Houston ($10,200) vs. South Florida

To me, the slate starts and ends with King. He leads the nation in fantasy points per game at 39.0 and he is a true dual-threat quarterback that has thrown multiple touchdowns in every game while also adding a rushing score in each outing. South Florida is particularly vulnerable against the run, so look for King to exploit that Saturday as the Bulls cough up 229 rushing yards per game. As good as Kyler Murray is and as well as I expect him to do this week, King should be the highest priced player on the board this week.
