This article is part of our DFS Main Slate Primer series.
Welcome to Alabama-LSU week! Sure, there are other games, but we all know what the highlight of the week is. Heck, it's the highlight of the college football season in the minds of many. Don't let yourself get tunnel vision, though. There are a lot of other games on the college football DFS slate. Those are the matchups that will likely make or break your lineup this week. I've highlighted 12 games, using DraftKings prices (FanDuel tends to post its Saturday contests late, but the recommendations can help there as well) to find some of the intriguing options available. All the numbers in parentheses in the stats sections are FBS rankings. Let's get to all those games that don't involve the Tide and the Tigers (and also that game too, of course)!
