College Fantasy Football

Sunday, August 9th, 2009

Thought I’d try this on for size.  I don’t follow college football nearly as closely as the NFL, so I figured joining a league might help me pay more attention to it.  10-team league, draft round in parentheses:

QB [1]: Taylor Potts, Texas Tech (3); Terrelle Pryor, Ohio State (10)
RB [2]: Jahvid Best, Cal (1); DeMarco Murray, OU (5); Chris Brown, OU (11); DuJuan Harris, Troy State (14)
WR [3]: Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State (2); Ryan Broyles, OU (6); Kevin Jurovich, San Jose State (8); Phillip Livas, Louisiana Tech (9)
TE [1]: Cody Slate, Marshall (7)
K [1]: Ross Evans, TCU (12)
DEF/ST [1]: USC (4); Texas (13)

Opening a topic on this in the forum since I’d love to know more about this team’s strengths/weaknesses. Before you even say it, I agree that taking USC so high was a mistake. I saw a couple of other people draft a defense so I thought maybe that was the way to go in the college game.

Three examples of free agents that could be picked up (not sure who I’d want to drop, but I guess DuJuan was my last pick. Obviously Texas is my reserve defense, but USC has two bye weeks … ) are QB Riley Dodge (North Texas), WR Brandon Collins (Texas), and TE Weslye Saunders (USC).
