What is College Football (NCAA) DFS?

The College football DFS acronym stands for “daily fantasy sports” – allowing fantasy players to be selected for one week or one matchup at a time. 
Individuals are provided a roster budget allowance and players are given a dollar amount. Within the parameters of the player pool, the individual must select players at proper positions under the allotted budget. 
Player pools and number of competitors vary. Compete against one or more lineups with a listed buy-in. Play high-stakes to win large sums of money or bet as little as 50 cents. Winnings are listed before submitting your lineup, in most formats more than one lineup will result in winnings.

Where to Play College DFS

How CFBDynasty Ranks Players for DFS

This season CFBDynasty is unleashing a custom algorithm to present data-backed projections each week during the college football season. 


The spread represents the number of what sports books as the difference between the two teams facing each other. So if our chart shows Alabama -14, we're using metric as a basis to assume Alabama will score 14 points more than their opponent in the upcoming game.

Statistical Analysis

With each passing week, new data points provide fantasy football owners with better consistency and ability to dial in decisions with more confidence. As yards, catches, targets, touchdowns all reach statistical significance - rankings get smarter.


The Over/Under represents the number of what sports books project as the combined score between both teams in their upcoming matchup. With Over/Under and the Spread, we calculate the number of points for the home and away team for every game each week.


Not much worse than tuning into your game and noticing far too late that is snowing or a downpour - thus realizing that your odds at fantasy points are far diminished. We certainly take a look at weather, but our future algorithm will handle this automatically!

Guide to Winning College DFS

The key to winning college DFS is a combination of nailing the high-dollar players, getting the best value possible for low-dollar players, and having a bit of luck.
CFBDynasty’s role is to consider all of the data available (the right data) and provide DFS players with the best odds at winning matchups.
