This article is part of our College Football DFS: Friday Slate series.
Postponements have decimated Friday's five-game slate. While DraftKings will continue to run their contests, FanDuel originally planned on splitting the slate into two different contests. As a result, they are running one slate without the earlier game and one with it included.
UTEP @ North Texas (-10) O/U: 64
Arizona State @ Arizona (-12) O/U: 56.5
Nevada @ San Jose State (-2) O/U: 59
With only three games available, it's wise to revert to a more cash game-based approach on Friday. With a high probability of identical lineups, prize pools in GPPs will dilute and become less profitable. Additionally, a slim slate like this negates any motivation to fade or endorse a particular matchup, but quarterback selection will likely make or break your slate, especially if you opt for a second signal-caller in your S-FLEX.
Although there is no precipitation on the docket, the Nevada-San Jose State game will be a chilly affair with temperatures in the mid-40's. The cold weather usually provides a minimal advantage to the rushing offenses of both teams.
QB Grant Gunnell, Arizona State (shoulder) QUESTIONABLE

Carson Strong, Nevada (DK $8,400, FD $10,200) @ San Jose State
Over his two years as a starter, Strong's prolific numbers are evident, and the Wolf Pack lives and dies
