College Football DFS: Thursday Slate, Week 1

This article is part of our College Football DFS: Thursday Slate series.

The college football season kicks off DFS action with an eight-game DFS slate. The major sites are not aligning this week, with DraftKings adding the two additional games to their main slate offering. We will take a look at those games and viable targets independently.
