This article is part of our DraftKings College Football series.
Welcome into our final regular-season main slate article. I'd like to start by saying I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and I'd like to thank you all for following along this season. We'll keep this series rolling through bowl season, so be on the lookout for that.
Regarding this slate, it's a fascinating one thanks to the rivalry wrinkle baked into each contest. And, interestingly enough, the Purdue-Indiana tilt has the highest implied total and has several options to consider. Who would have thunk that back in August? Looking elsewhere, the Baylor-Texas Tech and Arizona-Arizona State matchups profile as high-scoring affairs while the Miami-Pittsburgh and Florida-Florida State games may set offensive football back a decade. Listed below are our tools to help you build your lineups, along with my cheat sheet and write-ups for each position.
Peyton Ramsey, Indiana ($6,900) vs. Purdue
Several of the elite quarterbacks on this slate have tougher matchups than you'd like, so I'm dropping down and going cheaper at quarterback this week. Ramsey is a dicey play at times, but this sets up as a favorable situation for him. He's facing the worst pass defense of any team on this slate and he's at home, where he completes 70.1 percent of his passes (60.5 on the road). Ramsey is also athletic enough to make plays with his legs, so there is some rushing upside baked in as well.
