Whether you're playing DFS over the holidays or competing in a traditional bowl contest, CFG has you covered.

It's time to put a wrap on the 2014 College Fantasy Football regular season by naming our Champs & Chumps of the Year. Drum roll, please...
CHAMPS OF THE YEAR
1. Marcus Mariota, QB, Oregon
3,783 passing yards, 52 total touchdowns
Mariota really picked it up towards the end of the season, but let’s face it, he was the best player in college football all year long, and that includes fantasy. If you had Mariota, you were rarely deducted points, because he had just two interceptions all season long. In addition to the 38 touchdown passes, Mariota also ran for 14 more. His worst game of the season came against Arizona, but he still had nearly 300 yards of total offense and two touchdowns. The guy was a perfect fit in the Oregon offense and he displayed all of those talents this season.
2. Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
2,336 rushing yards, 29 touchdowns
In a year in which there were so, so many good running backs in college football, it is impressive that Gordon was by far and away the best. Some would say that he is just a product of the system and that Wisconsin churns out running back after running back, but you do not put up over 2300 yards without immense talent, and that is what Gordon has. Gordon has already announced that he will be off to the NFL, so watch out for Corey Clement next season as the next great Wisconsin back.

Let the bowl games begin! Here are your DraftKings player rankings for the first game slate of the bowl season.
As always, these weekly rankings will heavily weigh the player’s DraftKings salary versus expected production. If a player has a very high salary and a tough match up, that player could be ranked lower than a cheaper priced player with a better match up.
DRAFTKINGS PLAYER RANKINGS: SATURDAY, DEC. 20TH GAME SET
1) Cody Fajardo, Nevada vs. La Lafayette ($8300)
Fajardo has a terrific match up and could have a very big fantasy day. Expect a couple of rushing scores from Fajardo in this contest.
