Heading into Week 7 of the college football season, we’re here to break down the top college DFS plays on DraftKings.

College football is back – and thanks to the availability of daily fantasy 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 5:

Quarterback

McKenzie Milton, Central Florida, $10,400

With a shocking over/under of 81, the UCF/Memphis game should feature plenty of offensive firepower, and we know by now that Milton is typically the scoring driver for UCF. Memphis is a high-scoring offense and he’ll be forced to push the pace to keep up. UCF scored at least 40 in both games against Memphis in 2017. Milton has three games with over 40 DK points this season and his salary is down $800 after a letdown against SMU last week.
