Kickoff of the bowl season is just days away. From the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl to the Rose Bowl, we’ll be tuned in just like the rest you diehards. We’ve posted our first set of bowl previews, our fantasy sleepers , and even launched our College Fantasy Bowl Challenge. It is time now for the fantasy rankings.
The top quarterback spots should come as no surprise, though Houston’s Case Keenum takes bit of a hit going up against Air Force for the second straight year. Keenum was held to just to just 252 yards passing and one touchdown through the air last year (two on the ground) and Air Force is just as good on defense as they were a year ago…if not better. Keenum’s ranking and projections (which will be posted soon) are probably a bit high, but we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt that he can improve on last year’s showing.
The running backs are also about as you’d expect. A few sleeper names jump out; DeMaundray Woolridge could be in for a big day against Bowling Green, the Air Force tandem of Jared Tew and Asher Clark should run wild, as should Georgia’s Washaun Ealey and Caleb King
At wide receiver we have our standard issue top two in Freddie Barnes and Danario Alexander. I don’t think we’ll get too much argument there. But the rest of the top 30 is filled with some interesting names like Mohamed Sanu, Darvin Adams, LaVon Brazill, Antavious Wilson, Alshon Jeffery and a few others. You’ll probably want to stick with the tried and true if you are redrafting during the bowl season, but all of these could be nice sleeper picks to round out your roster.
Good luck to all in your fantasy leagues and those in our bowl challenge! Read more…

We are taking our third stab at Case Keanu as our top rated quarterback. Our apologies to Keenum owners. Keenum threw for a combined three touchdowns the last two times we propped him up on our lofty perch (weeks 7 & 8). But he’s been hot, throwing for over 500 yards in each of the last two games. And it is time to get value out of your number one overall pick when it matters the most.
Not surprisingly, Colin Kaepernick is a close second. While we don’t expect him to carve up Fresno State like he did San Jose State, there is not a hotter quarterback in the country the last five weeks. Colt McCoy is the only BCS quarterback to make our top ten.

If you had told us back in August that Ryan Mathews would lead our running back rankings heading into Week 10 we’d nod in agreement, pleased that he recovered from his injury woes of 2008. If you told us that Chad Spann, Bernard Pierce and Lance Dunbar would join him in the top ten we would have done a little more research.
Forget preseason rankings and don’t worry about name recognition. It’s money time and backs that have done it all season and continue to see favorable matchups are the horses to whom you should hitch your wagon.

There is not a hotter quarterback right now than Colin Kaepernick. After a slow start, Nevada is tearing through opponents, especially on the ground. Notre Dame plays Washington State in San Antonio, Texas. A showcase game for Charlie Weis and Texas recruits. Anyone wearing a gold helmet this week should have a big day. Our top fantasy running back Ryan Mathews is edged out this week by Lance Dunbar. Dunbar has scored at least two touchdowns in the last four games and faces the Western Kentucky rushing defense that is ranked 119th in the country. Who faces the worst worst rushing defense (Eastern Michigan)? That would Michael Smith and Arkansas. Smith is not a gimme in this one though, as he is still battling a hamstring injury. This is a feast or famine game for Smith. The same can be said for C.J. Spiller who is still bothered by a turf toe injury and facing Coastal Carolina. Defensively, there are a lot of good options this week, starting with the Clemson defense. Ohio State, Air Force and Penn State also look good.

Regardless of whether you’re in a head-to-head or total points league, we’ve officially entered crunch time in the college fantasy football season. The playoffs are no longer off in the horizon; instead the second season in approaching with the speed of Jeff Demps in the open field. And we’re right there with those owners who are pondering every possible roster or lineup move in hopes of gaining that extra edge with our Week Eight player rankings.

It is amazing to think that through six weeks of college football, Houston’s Case Keenum has yet to be ranked as our number one quarterback. Well the streak ends here with with the Cougars playing a struggling Tulane squad. Keenum and running back Bryce Beall should each be in for a big day.

Last week G.J. Kinne of Tulsa became our first top rated quarterback to let us down. Two touchdowns is just not going to cut it when compared to performances churned out by the others we’ve had in the top slot this year. This week we look to redeem ourselves with Toledo’s Aaron Opelt. The Glass Bowl should be rocking with Opelt and Western Michigan’s Tim Hiller airing it out in a MAC affair. There was a fight for the number one tailback spot this week between Marshall’s Darius Marshall and Fresno State’s Ryan Mathews. Fantasy owners should be happy going into the week with either in their starting lineup. You’ll also notice some surprising running backs in the top 20 this week: DeMaundray Woolridge, Ike Nduka, Seth Smith, Bernard Pierce and others. Toledo wide receiver Stephen Williams hooks up with Opelt to take down the top wide receiver spot. A number of familiar names head up our tight end list in Dennis Pitta, Cody Slate, George Bryan and Ed Dickson. Looking for a defense? Look no further than the team lucky enough to play Washington State each week.
