The bowl season moves along after what ended up being a crazy day/night yesterday with a cancelled game and one in which a winning quarterback posted a 7-for-20 with 27 yards, no touchdowns and four picks! Needless to say, we can’t top that. Though, we do have three intriguing games and plenty of DFS money to be won, so we’ll give you a run through a lineup construction strategy for today’s three games.
Temple (-3.5) vs. Duke - total: 54
Miami-FL (-2.5) vs. Wisconsin - total: 44
Baylor vs. Vanderbilt (-4.5) - total: 56
First, let’s identify our top two non-QB players based on points projected:
A couple of running backs listed as “Q” on the DK app are Temple’s Ryquell Armstead and Vanderbilt’s Ke’Shawn Vaughn.

A. Voth - SP
The Nationals recalled Voth from Triple-A Fresno to serve as the 26th man for Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
M. Scherzer - SP
General manager Mike Rizzo said that while Scherzer (nose) is "scheduled" to pitch the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Phillies, the right-hander's status for the contest remains undetermined, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports. "I think we'll see what happens when he wakes up [Wednesday]," Rizzo said.
Scherzer is still recovering from the broken nose he sustained while taking part in a bunting drill Tuesday, putting his availability entirely up in the air. Patrick Corbin is slated to start the first game of the twin bill for the Nationals, and the club also recalled Triple-A Fresno rotation member Austin Voth to serve as the 26th man for the day. If Scherzer's nose is presenting too much discomfort for him to pitch Wednesday, he'll likely be pushed back in the schedule, opening up a start for either Voth or Erick Fedde, according to Dan Kolko of MASN Sports.
