The Gridiron Scholar Core Four 8/31

8.31 College Football Slate

by John Laub (@GridironSchol91)

John Laub, aka The Gridiron Scholar, joins Expand The Boxscore to deliver his weekly Core Four lineup. Every Saturday morning throughout the ‪College Football season, he will be providing readers with the necessary knowledge to generate a Cash Game lineup for DraftKings, by identifying four players who should anchor lineups in 50-50s and Double Ups. The object is not to pinpoint well known players such as QB Tua Tagovailoa and RB Jonathan Taylor. For DFS diehards like the Scholar, those are easy selections to make. We are seeking value in Cash Games and searching for a Price Value (Projected Points/Salary x 100) over three times your investment. You will find the projected PV ratio on the far-right column of the Core Four. Let’s double your investments, and enjoy the games!
