College Football Premium Launch: CFB DFS Optimizer, Projections and Content
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

With a lot of the attention on the NFL Preseason in DFS and the regular season sneaking up after labor day, we are low key excited to announce that DailyRoto will offer a CFB DFS Optimizer, CFB DFS Projections, and premium written content to our subscribers for the 2019 CFB DFS season. CFB DFS access will be complimentary for our ELITE subscribers or can be purchased as a standalone premium product.

CFB DFS Projections and Written Content

We’ve taken our NFL DFS projection framework and applied it to every major team in NCAA football. This framework starts with key inputs at a team level and cascades them down to individual players.

Vegas Totals. Used to set team level expected scoring, we leverage team totals for every game to feed directly into our expected team level production.

Expected Play Volume.  Using team level play volume, opposing team play volume and Vegas totals we’re able to produce expected play volume for each team on a slate.

Run-to-Pass Ratios. No sport offers offenses as diverse as college football. From Air Raid to Triple Option we’ll project expected running and passing plays for each team based on their own trends and the trends of those specific opponents.

Positional Depth. These metrics are then cascaded down to all of the individual skill position players based on their role in the offense. With hundreds of players to consider and games that feature heavier rotations, our team has also introduced the concept of CFB Archetypes to improve the accuracy of projections. By drawing parallels to pocket passers, hybrid passing, and rushing superstars, and run first mobile quarterbacks we’re able to more accurately project the fantasy performance of the overall offense.

College football is unique in the way teams use deeper benches at certain positions and can even rotate quarterbacks (or pull them in a blowout) and our projections will account for this risk. Each week we’ll have automated baselines for the CFB contests and our team will adjust individual market share on teams to reflect new roles, injuries, matchups and more. Our projections will cover the CFB Saturday contests and be updated until Noon EST.

On top of our projections, we’ll be offering written content each week to supplement your research. Much like our flagship NFL DFS breakdowns, we’ll walk through key decisions for every position and important tournament considerations.

CFB DFS OG Chris Kay and Chris Pacheco will be manning our player level baselines on the backs of the complex statistical modeling work done in the DailyRoto model by Mike Leone.
