Updated On: September 1, 2021, 2:56 pm ET

The 2021 College Football season is finally here! This Saturday features a full opening slate of 57 Division 1 FBS games for the first time since 2019, and it's a beautiful sight to see. There projects to be a full season in store this year and we could not be more excited to roll out our latest CFB DFS Tools. Our goal at NBC Sports EDGE is to keep you engaged all season long, and we hope to be by your side on your road to becoming a DFS Champion.

Loaded with the tools you need to refine your skills in daily fantasy - featuring Optimal Lineups, a salary tracker, a custom lineup optimizer, daily projections and more - we are confident that the latest edition of our tools is the finest we've ever produced, and we are eager to share them with you.

Today, we're giving you a taste of our CFB DFS lineup optimizer tool for the Week 1 games taking place Saturday. There are 19 teams ranked in the AP Top 25 playing Saturday, which means it's a prime market to assemble DFS lineups and secure your profits. Many of these powerhouse programs have out-of-conference games against relatively weaker teams compared to their own conferences. With our lineup optimizer, you have the option to select your DFS gaming platform, teams you want to stack or exclude players from and much more. See what our projected optimal lineup looks like for Saturday:
