DFS College Football 101: Week 10 Thursday
The calendar has turned to November, meaning we are hitting the home stretch of this college football regular season. It also means that we could see some more weather situations in the coming month or so. Thursday plays into that sentiment with chances of precipitation for Ohio-WMU and NIU-Akron. On top of that, a pair of stars from the Temple-UCF game are questionable (QB Milton and RB Armstead). We will parse through all of that in the following write-ups. In the meantime, here are the odds attached to these Thursday matchups:
Ohio (-3) at Western Michigan – Total: 64
Northern Illinois (-6) at Akron – Total: 37
Temple at UCF (-10) – Total: 61
Looking within that, I'll highlight the best fantasy selections on FanDuel & DraftKings while also touching on some situations to monitor for your DFS squads.
Nathan Rourke – Ohio (FanDuel $10,000 / DraftKings $9,900)
Rourke was listed in this spot last Thursday, and he didn't disappoint with a sweet 28 FP performance vs Ball State. He has a similarly good matchup at Western Michigan this time around – a team that ranks 102nd in opponent passer rating and 98th in yards per carry allowed. As mentioned earlier, there's a chance for precipitation in this game, but that doesn't really impact Rourke's upside too much. He's a dual-threat QB who has topped 75+ rushing yards in four of his last six games with six touchdown scampers over that span.
