What a busy week it has been so far and will continue to be, thanks to the multiple articles being put out by the DFS team as well as the Bet on C2C podcast. We’re all excited, though, and fueled by the thoughts of a hopefully glorious Sunday morning ahead of us. The main slate on DraftKings should be a lot of fun, but if you don’t quite nail the right receiver and find yourself on the wrong side of the cash line, then have no fear. The night slate is here!
What a difference a few hours can make in the DFS world. We go from three projected stars at the quarterback position to only two (in my opinion) accurately priced over $7,000. If Ethan were writing this, he’d be putting Chris Reynolds ($8,000) as his QB1 on this slate, but you get me, and thus Drake Maye ($7,400) is atop the list. There is some risk here due to the fact that Mack Brown has said both quarterbacks will play, but I’m going to believe he meant mop-up duty against Florida A&M. The Vegas total isn’t out, but I’d be shocked if they didn’t have UNC in the 40s in this matchup. With the QB battle coming down to the wire, they’ll want to push Maye a little to make sure they made the right choice.
Reynolds does have some intrigue Saturday night against FAU, as it’ll be a competitive game, and he’s shown to be a successful G5 QB in years past. I have him more in my QB4-5 range, but he’s your safest option at QB in the slate.
