College football is back – and thanks to the availability of daily fantasy football games, it’s better than ever. Well, at least better than it’s been in a few years. The game is a little different than it was several years ago when it was last available. In case you’re playing catch-up, here’s an overview of what college football games look like on DraftKings:

Salary Cap – $50,000
Lineup Construction – QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, flex, superflex

Important notes: In flex spot one, we can play a running back or a wide receiver. In the superflex spot, we can use any player in the pool. If you’re looking for tight ends, they are all listed at wide receiver.

Here are some of my favorite plays for the Saturday Noon main slate on DraftKings (10 games) in Week 3:


Eric Dungey, Syracuse ($9,300)

Florida State just surrendered 475 passing yards to Samford last week. No, that’s not a typo and I didn’t mean Stanford. SAMFORD. Dungey is averaging over 38 DK points per game through the first two weeks of the season. His seven passing touchdowns lead the ACC, as do his eight total touchdowns. He’s also second in the conference in rushing yards.

Cole McDonald, Hawaii ($9,200)

McDonald has an insane 13:0 TD:INT ratio through three games and has also scored twice on the ground. He’s yet to fail to throw for 300 yards in a game so far and should get much resistance from the 217th-ranked passing defense (Army) on Saturday. His worst DK output this season is 38.1 points.
