This article is part of our College Football DFS: Weekday Slate series.
Welcome to our breakdown of Tuesday's MACtion slate. Unfortunately, one of the three games was canceled so we're working with an even shorter slate. The cancellation also leaves us with two very lopsided games on the board, with Buffalo checking in as 30.5-point favorites over Bowling Green and Kent State sitting at -26.0 over Akron.

Dustin Crum, Kent State ($9,100 DK, $11,500 FD) vs. Akron
These MACtion slates make it difficult to fade the top quarterback, and that's especially true when 1/3 of the games on a given slate gets canceled. With that, Crum is a must-play again Tuesday.
Crum is completing nearly 70 percent of his passes at 8.8 YPA and has a 6:1 TD:INT through two games. The only limiting factor with Crum is that he may not play the whole game. He was out of the game by the end of the third quarter last week, and Kent State faces a similar setup this week against Akron where the Flashes are nearly four-touchdown favorites.
Even if that happens again and Crum gets pulled early, it'll almost certainly be due to Crum posting a gaudy stat line en route to building a significant lead.
