DFS Main Slate Primer: Week 5

This article is part of our DFS Main Slate Primer series.

We're in the flow of the season now! No need for a lot of preamble. Here's some info and recommendations to try and help you on the college football DFS front this week. The numbers in parentheses after the stats are FBS rankings, and, if you aren't aware, DK is DraftKings, and FD is FanDuel.

Ausbon has 25 catches for 364 yards, and Davis has 16 catches for 226 yards even though he missed the Lamar game.
