Daily College Fantasy Football Picks – Week 1 8/31/2013

Week number one of the College Football season is upon us and daily fantasy sports allows you to get involved in the action each Saturday. Unlike traditional fantasy games, daily leagues allow you to draft and compete all in the same day – without waiting for an entire season to play out to see who wins.

Week 1 of the college football season has some quirky non-conference matchups … and the top rated QB is going to sit out for the 1st half for signing autographs this past season. With all that in mind, here are week #1 daily college fantasy football picks by position.

These are Saturday games only.
