College Fantasy Football 2013: Week 15 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em

Posted on December 06, 2013 by Ryan Moss and Kevin Mount

Start ‘Em:

James Franklin – Missouri vs. Auburn
Franklin could have a big day against a Houston pass defense that comes in ranked 100th in the country. Expect plenty of points from both teams in the SEC title game. Franklin could leave fantasy owners grinning from ear to ear after this week. 
STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT      

Blake Bortles –UCF vs. SMU
Bortles could torch a horrendous SMU pass defense and post some gaudy numbers this week. Look for plenty of points to be scored in this game and Bortles could have a hand in many of them. Start your Knights this week.    
STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT  

Rakeem Cato- Marshall vs. Rice
After struggling some to start the year, Cato has been lighting it up over the past five games. In the Conference-USA championship he’ll face a stingy Rice defense, but I don’t think that will matter. Cato and this Marshall offense are good enough to still put up a lot of points.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Week 14 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em WRs

Posted on November 27, 2013 by Joe Arpasi and Kevin Mount

Start ‘Em:

Paul Richardson – Colorado vs. Utah
Richardson has been a fantasy monster all year long and there is no reason to think that trend will stop this week. Look for Richardson to make plenty of plays against the Utes 106th ranked pass defense.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT

Austin Franklin-New Mexico State vs. Idaho
Franklin has had a huge 2nd half of the season and could continue to be hot against Idaho. The Vandals pass defense has allowed an obscene total of 38 receiving touchdowns this year and could allow a few more to Franklin this week.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT     

Jordan Matthews – Vanderbilt vs. Wake Forest
Matthews is averaging 12 receptions over the past two games. The coaches know that he gives the offense the best chance to win. This week should have a similar gameplan in place, and a much better match-up with the Deacon secondary.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Week 14 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em RBs

Posted on November 27, 2013 by Ryan Moss and Joe Arpasi

Start ‘Em:

De'Anthony Thomas – Oregon vs. Oregon State
The “Mamba” could be unleashed this week with Byron Marshall likely out due to injury. DeAnthony could be used all over the field and a day of 150 total yards and a couple of scores seem like a good bet. Start this Duck and enjoy the reward.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         

Kareem Hunt –Toledo vs. Akron
Hunt could have a field day with Akron on the docket this week. The Zips rush defense is nothing special and could yield plenty of big gains to Hunt this week. Expect well over 100 yards rushing and a couple of trips to the end zone for Hunt this week.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT  

Bishop Sankey – Washington vs. Washington State
The Apple Cup has not been kind to Washington the last couple of seasons. But this looks to be a different Husky team. Expect plenty of Sankey as the Washington offense looks to keep the ball from the Cougar offense.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

Storm Johnson – UCF vs. South Florida
The Black Knights are rolling. South Florida lacks the talent to stop the UCF running game and Johnson should see plenty of running room. This match-up is just too difficult for South Florida to limit the UCF offense.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

Joey DeMartino- Utah State vs. Wyoming
DeMartino was the workhorse for Utah State last week against Colorado State, with 35 carries for 127 yards and the game’s only touchdown. He’ll find it a lot easier to run against a very poor Wyoming defense that has been getting dominated by its opponents.
STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS

Charles Sims- West Virginia vs. Iowa State
Sims is clearly the Mountaineers top offensive weapon and the Cyclones will have a hard time slowing him down. Iowa State is allowing over 200 rushing yards per game and Sims should have his way on the ground.
STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS


Sit ‘Em:

Tre Mason –Auburn vs. Alabama
Mason has had a big season with over 1100 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns. His numbers could take a big dip this week with Alabama on the dance card. Look for the Crimson Tide to focus on stopping Mason and the Tigers ground game.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT 

Charles Ross-Rice vs. Tulane
Ross is nursing a sore shoulder and will be facing a stingy Tulane rush defense that is ranked 16th in the country. Fantasy owners could be very disappointed with the numbers that Ross may post this week. Look for a stronger option this week.       
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT  

Tre Mason – Auburn vs. Alabama
Two things can be expected in this major SEC game. Auburn will focus on running the ball and Alabama will focus on stopping the run. Two seasons ago when Auburn beat Alabama they had their success with Cam Newton running the ball, not the running backs. Don’t be surprised if Auburn looks to do more of the same with the quarterback this week.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

Kelvin Taylor- Florida vs. Florida State
As a diehard Florida fan, it pains me to have Taylor here and pains me even more to write this. Florida State has a really good defense and they will focus on shutting Taylor down and forcing Florida to beat them through the air. Taylor’s production will be minimal although I’m hopefully he can prove me wrong.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Week 14 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em QBs

Posted on November 27, 2013 by Ryan Moss and Kevin Mount

Start ‘Em:

Marcus Mariota – Oregon vs. Oregon State
Mariota could return to Stud form this week against Oregon State. The Beavers defense is not very good and Mariota could post a monster stat line. Look for the Ducks to put up plenty of points in the Civil War.
STAFF PICK - KEVIN MOUNT      

Taylor Kelly – Arizona State vs. Arizona
Arizona scored a HUGE win last week against Oregon. While it’s easy to get fired up for an instate rival, could Arizona be too emotionally spent after the Oregon win? The Sun Devils are rolling and you can bet there will be plenty of scoring in this one and that’s a good thing for Kelly.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

Shane Carden – East Carolina at Marshall
While Carden has put u good numbers the last two weeks, he has only thrown the ball 30 times in each contests. This week Carden will dine on a Marshall secondary that lacks the ability to match up with the Carolina receivers. This should be a must start in your lineup.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI

Blake Bortles- UCF vs. USF
Bortles carved up the Rutgers defense last week, at least in the first half, and will have no problem with the USF defense this week. I’m expecting 300 yards passing and at least two scores from Bortles this week.
STAFF PICK – RYAN MOSS

Taysom Hill- BYU vs. Nevada
Nevada is giving up over 35 points and 500 yards per game. Hill should have a field day both on the ground and throwing the ball against such a weak defense.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Waiver Wire Report, Week 14

Posted on November 25, 2013 by Ryan Moss

BCS

Blake Bortles, QB UCF
Honestly I’m shocked that Bortles is only owned in about 20% of Fantrax leagues. He has only had two rough games, at Memphis and home versus Houston. Bortles carved up the Rutgers defense in the first half this week, before slowing down in the second half. I’m expecting more big numbers from him as UCF still has games against USF and SMU. Both of those defenses are bad and Bortles will easily be able to make plays.

Henry Josey, RB Missouri
Josey has had a solid season despite having to split carries with two other running backs. The past two weeks he has really stepped up his game with 233 total yards and five touchdowns. Missouri will be hosting a Texas A&M defense that loves to give up points. Josey should get plenty of touches again this week and continue his hot streak.

Steve Hull, WR Illinois
I jumped on the Hull bandwagon during the middle of last week and if only I had been smart enough to play him…  He has been shredding opposing defenses that past three weeks (including Ohio State) to the tune of 27 catches for 498 yards and five touchdowns. With Northwestern on tap this week, Hull should continue to make big plays for the Fighting Illini

Tyler Lockett, WR Kansas State
Lockett has had some monster games this year, including this past weekend against Oklahoma with 12 catches for 278 yards and three scores. His one remaining game is against in-state rival Kansas and their weak defense. Lockett is worth grabbing and a spot start in deeper leagues.

College Fantasy Football 2013: Rapid Fire Preview, Week 13

Posted on November 22, 2013 by Todd DeVries

The college fantasy football playoffs are in full swing.  Time to boot the wife or girlfriend out of the house for the day.  Stock up the fridge with a few cold ones.  And sit your ass down on the E-Z chair.

You deserve some alone time on Saturday.  Just you and your TV.  

Best of luck to all you Geeks out there on bringing home a trophy. Here's what we'll be watching...  


*****


12:00pm ET

Citadel vs. Clemson
This is a tricky spot for those who have been riding Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins all year.  Can they produce enough to appease fantasy owners before getting rested in this laugher?  South Carolina looms next week.

Old Dominion at North Carolina
Marquise Williams, Quinshad Davis and Eric Ebron all have a great matchup here.  Can they take advantage?

Cincinnati at Houston
The Coogs have fallen apart the past few weeks as their AAC schedule toughened up.  Do they have one last fantasy bullet left?  Also, is Deontay Greenberry 100 percent?

East Carolina at NC State
Shane Carden and Justin Hardy owners are not pleased with an ACC matchup this late in the year.  But NC State is nothing special.  Will the Pirates produce?

College Fantasy Football 2013: Week 13 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em WRs

Posted on November 21, 2013 by Kevin Mount and Joe Arpasi

Start ‘Em:

Anthony McClung – Cincinnati vs. Rutgers
McClung is averaging eight receptions and 103 yards over the past three games and could do some damage this week against Houston. The Cougars rank 110th in pass defense and could get beat early and often by McClung this week.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT

Travis Reynolds-Utah State vs. Colorado State
Reynolds has gone over 120 yards receiving in three of the past four contests and could make it four out of five this week against Colorado State. The Rams pass defense is allowing 299 yards per game and could struggle slowing down Reynolds this week.
STAFF PICK – KEVIN MOUNT         

Mike Evans – Texas A&M at LSU
Everybody knows Evans is a stud. But this match-up might scare off some fantasy owners with their playoff lives on the line. LSU will likely score on the ground and in the air, forcing Johnny Football to try and save the day. The LSU defense is athletic enough to make Manziel have to throw more when he scrambles and that means he will be targeting his safety blanket Evans a lot when he’s on the run.
STAFF PICK – JOE ARPASI
