This article is part of our DFS College Football 101 series.
There may be only three games on this DFS College Football Friday slate, but we have plenty of intriguing matchups to build a formidable lineup or two on DraftKings and FanDuel. This Week 7 Friday night slate (along with the odds) consists of:
South Florida (-7.5) at Tulsa – Total: 63
Air Force at San Diego State (-10) – Total: 45
Arizona at Utah (-14) – Total: 51
I'll highlight the best fantasy selections on FanDuel and DraftKings while also touching on some situations to monitor for your DFS squads.
Blake Barnett, South Florida (FanDuel $9,200 / DraftKings $8,400)
I really like Barnett through all formats on both sites. South Florida checks in with the highest projected score on this slate, against a Tulsa defense that was dusted by Arkansas State (29 pts), Temple (31 pts) and Houston (41 pts) in three consecutive games. Barnett's recent fantasy performances are just mediocre due to USF leaning heavily on the run against East Carolina and UMass. There should be enough production to go around in this meeting with the Golden Hurricane, and Barnett could add to his fantasy cause with rushing upside as well (15-86-2 vs Georgia Tech in Week 1).
Also Consider: I'm keeping my eye on Air Force QB Donald Hammond III as a tournament pick or S-Flex combination with Barnett. The Falcons aren't projected to score many points at San Diego State, but Hammond could find the end zone with plenty of volume while running the offense
