Daily Slants - Saturday

The College Football season kicked off, in earnest, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. However, for most die-hard football fans, the first full Saturday of action is the 'real' start of the action. And with the full schedule of games comes Daily Fantasy Football. If you're new, or a grizzled veteran, you know how challenging it can be to pick from a whole slate of games. There are so many teams, so many players, etc. I'll do the research for you, providing weekly rankings, as well as top performances from the previous week, and my own DFS lineup. We'll also take a look back at the previous week's lineup and I'll give you an honest grade of my own advice.
