#8 Florida (-7.5) at Miami Hurricanes Total 47 (in Orlando)
Florida comes into the season as a top 10 team that was voted by media to finish 2nd in the SEC East. They are a rush first team that is led in the backfield by Lamical Perine. Perine was in a split backfield last season with Jordan Scarlett who is now a member of the Carolina Panthers. Perine averaged over 6 yards a carry last season and looks to keep that going this year. Under center for the Gators is Felipe 3rd year starter Felipe Franks. Franks averaged over 24 passing attempts a game last season and is not afraid to use his feet. There are lots of “ORs” on the Florida depth chart but the one receiver that is a guaranteed starter is Van Jefferson. That being said, Jefferson had no more than 4 catches and 92 yards in any game last season as Franks likes to spread the ball around. Miami is a top tier defense, finishing 4th in total defense last season, but Florida averaged over 500 yards a game the last 4 games of last season and is slated to have a better offense this year. This will be a tough game but there could be some gems on this Gator team.
Miami is under new head coach Manny Diaz and he brings with him former Alabama QB coach Dan Enos. Enos should help the Canes bring more creativity to the offensive side of the ball. Miami comes into the season starting redshirt freshman Jarren Williams at quarterback, who won the job over Ohio State transfer Tate Martell and former starter N’Kosi Perry. Williams is a relative unknown, only throwing 3 passes in his career and running for one TD. He is a pro-style quarterback but will be going up against a very tough defense in Florida. One obstacle the young quarterback will face is having a true freshman, Zion Nelson, at left tackle. Williams could be under a ton of pressure early and often. Williams does have an array of receivers to choose from including speedy Jeff Thomas and tight end Brevin Jordan. That being said, I expect Jordan to have to stay home more than normal to help out the offensive line block the stout Florida pass rush. My favorite part of the Miami attack for DFS purposes is DeeJay Dallas. Dallas should see a lot of work early this season to try to take the pressure off of the young quarterback. Last year, backing up Travis Homer, Dallas averaged just under 6 yards a carry. He should step up and see more carries this year, especially with the new Enos offense.

Arizona (-11) @ Hawaii Total 74
In the game that will see the most attention for DFS purposes, Arizona travels to Hawaii in what should be a high scoring game. Khalil Tate returns for his senior year to start under center for the Wildcats. He had a down year last year under first-year coach Kevin Sumlin due to both injury and change of system. If Tate can get back to his ways from 2 years ago, when he rushed for over 1400 yards, he could be in line for a huge season. Sumlin’s system loves to go to the WR1 and the slot receiver. The WR1 is senior Cedric Peterson. Peterson finally has his time to shine after averaging just under 15 yards per reception last year. In the slot, there are co-starters with Brian Casteel and Jamarye Joiner. Arizona running back JJ Taylor is back this year and should continue where he left off. Taylor had over 20 carries a game last year with 5.6 yards per carry. The Arizona offensive line should be much improved and Taylor should be able to rip through this Hawaii defense.
Hawaii’s air raid offense returns this year with Cole McDonald once again at the helm. He should once again be airing out the ball around 40 times a game. Last year’s leading receiver, John Ursua has moved on to the NFL and is now with the Seattle Seahawks leaving behind JoJo Ward and Cedric Byrd as the top two targets. Both should be in line for big games this week as the Warriors will have to (and do regardless) air the ball out against this Wildcat defense. There are some great bargains on this Warrior team that I would love to share with you. Want them? They will be on my picks sheet with all of my confidence ratings and notes for the week! Come join me at DFS Army to see for yourself!
