Early college football DFS picks December 12: King me!

We have a loaded 13 game college football DFS tournament for the early slate on DraftKings this week. It’s nice having a slate like this on the second weekend in December! This is normally only the Army-Navy game. Don’t worry. That’s one is on this slate.

We start it off early with Bama heading north the Fayetteville to take on the upstart Hogs. Wake heads west to Louisville in a nice ACC contrast game. Rutgers takes on Maryland in a Big Ten(14) matchup of teams trying to get better. Georgia heads into Missouri, which is never easy. Oklahoma heads to West Virginia to make up a game that was supposed to happen a couple of weeks ago.

For the rest of the afternoon, we have CCU, fresh off the biggest win in history, heading down to Troy in what feels like a trap. The Heels head to Miami to take on that opportunistic defense. Wisconsin heads south to Iowa City and Sparty heads to unHappy Valley in the Big Ten. Duke heads down to Florida State as the Seminoles are finally ready to get back to action. Houston heads up to Memphis in a CUSA tilt and Washington goes Duck hunting down in Eugene after both teams come of a rough loss. This is going to be fun!

It is important to note that we have lost at least one game on the early slate every week for the last six weeks. Keep an eye on cancellations. They are everywhere this year.

I ended up with a nice showing on the afternoon slates last Saturday. It was enough to break me even despite a lackluster showing in the early and late slates. Let’s get primed for another strong week!

The scoring for DraftKings college football is much the same as it is for the NFL with one notable exception: the super flex! That means aside from the flex position which is RB/WR, you can add another player from any position! Want four running backs? Go right ahead! Five wide receivers? Sure! Two quarterbacks? Of course! Just stay under the salary cap!

The super flex replaces the defense, which is essential in college football. This is all about the offense. College football DFS scoring realizes that!
