If you have been a follower/subscriber of DailyOverlay.com for some time, and you follow my work, you know I try to dabble in a lot of different sports.
And I started splitting football duties this past week between college football and Week 1 of the NFL. But I feel like that spreads me super thin with the time I have available at home these days with one kid and another on the way shortly.
I want to make sure I am putting out quality and putting that effort into making something really good instead of making two things just OK.
So what I am trying to say is that I will be concentrating solely on college football from here on out for us, and Matt, Brad and Greg, the masters of the universe, will handle all of our NFL content.
That means an early and late slate write up for the Power Five each week but also means I have to put what little money I have, where my mouth is.
So let’s get on with today’s Power Five for the early slate, which features 12 games of college football action. Remember, the free version gets you access to one pick while subscribers or free trial members get access to the rest of the product.
Jerry Jeudy – WR – Alabama – $8,000
Analysis: The Judge cracks the Power 5 for the first time this season. And if I have to explain the Judge Jeudy reference, well, maybe you are a little sheltered. But Jeudy and this Alabama offense get their first taste of real action (loosely speaking) as they travel to South Carolina as 25-point favorites. The Gamecocks also have had a taste of real action, losing to Carolina rival UNC in their opener. They will be without their starting quarterback, to boot. So ‘Bama has faced Bucknell Junior College and Tribal Warrior State University (these are made up schools by the way) and in each of those games, which have been blowouts, Bama’s first-team offense has thrown 31 and 24 passes. That’s a lot for a team that plays about a half of football every time out. So I think that’s the floor here with upside for more should this game be close in the second half for any reason. What does that mean for Jeudy? Far more usage and volume for one of, if not THE, best receiver in the country. In those two blowouts, he has 18 catches for 240 yards and 4 TDs. His price has come down from $8,300 in Week 1 to $8,000. Jeudy is going to be the first person in my early slate lineups today.
