College Football DFS: Night Slate, Week 1

This article is part of our College Football DFS: Night Slate series.

The two major sites provide an almost identical slate for Saturday night's contests.

QUARTERBACK

D.J. Uiagalelei, Clemson (DK $7,500, FD $8,100) vs. Georgia

If you look at DJU's two starts in place of Trevor Lawrence, the numbers are outstanding. He averaged almost 400 passing yards per game against two of the toughest teams on their schedule (Notre Dame and Boston College). Now,
