What’s up #ELITEMAFIA, it’s a 2-game College Football Friday night starting at 8 PM EST. As the season moves on, these weekday games will start to become a regular thing. Tonight, we have some high totals, 2 games over 60 and CFB players that most folks know.
Let’s jump right into the game by game breakdown.
UCF @ Cincinnati (8 PM KICKOFF)
Spread: UCF – 5.5 | Total: 60
Another American Athletic Conference game tonight, pitting #18 UCF at Cincinnati. Starting out with UCF, Dillon Gabriel has locked down the QB spot for now. He leads the AAC with 14 TD passes and is 2nd in passing yards. The Bearcat defense is going to be a nice test for Gabriel. They only allow 167 passing yards a game. His downside is with his rushing yards, where he is in the negative. His favorite target is Gabriel Davis. Davis has 39 targets overall. The last two games he has 5 TDs and 21 targets. After Davis, Tre Nixon has 31 targets. The backfield is jammed up with four mouths to feed. I am avoiding it if I can.
Michael Warren is by far the top player on this 2-game slate. However, he is suddenly in a time share with Tavion Thomas. Thomas is nearly $3,000 below Warren on DK. Both backs are capable of a big game. Warren has PPR upside with 11 targets. TE Josiah Deguara leads the team with 19 targets. WR Alec Pierce is the team’s top WR and leads the team in receiving yards.
DFS Targets: WR Gabriel Davis (UCF), QB Dillon Gabriel (UCF), WR Tre Nixon (UCF), RB Michael Warren (CIN), TE Josiah Deguara (CIN), WR Alec Pierce (CIN)
New Mexico @ San Jose State (8 PM KICKOFF)
Spread: SJST – 6.5 | Total: 66.5
New Mexico is led by Tevaka Tuiotl. He averages 206 passing and 40 rushing yards a game. The SJST defense is allowing just over 500 yards a game. Tuiotl at his $6,500 price, the upside is there. I prefer him naked with no real top WR. Ahmari Davishas a great matchup too. He is averaging 90 plus a game and leads the team with 15 redzone carries.
For SJST, Josh Love throws it over 35 times a game averaging 253 yards a game. The top QB-WR combo on the slate is Love and Tre Walker. I wrote Walker up last week and I will again tonight on this small slate. Walker has a team high 31 targets and 230 yards in 2 games.
DFS Targets: RB Ahmari Davis (UNM), Tevaka Tuiolt (UNM), Josh Love (SJST), Tre Walker (SJST)
