With spring football nearing its end, several storylines have developed on the college fantasy football front. Here's a rundown of the latest headlines.
News: RB Lache Seastrunk looks like the real deal.
CFG Analysis: The Oregon transfer looked great in the Baylor spring game, totaling 138 yards and a score on the ground in only seven carries. He does not have anything sown up yet, but could be in store for a big season if given the opportunity. The ceiling is very, very high with this speedster.
News: QB Nick Florence shows he’s no slouch
CFG Analysis: While he may never be mistaken for RGIII, Florence showed that he can fill the stat sheet also with 183 yards and three scores in the Bears spring game. With three quality wide outs to throw to this season, Florence has the parts around him to be successful on the fantasy level.
News: RB Antonio Andrews separates from the pack
CFG Analysis: The competition to replace Bobby Rainey in the Western Kentucky backfield may have come to screeching halt after their spring game. Antonio Andrews exploded with 121 yards rushing and 67 yards receiving. Coach Willie Taggart has been know to ride one guy, so Andrews could have a great opportunity to become a fantasy factor in 2012.
News: QB Tyler Wilson on target all spring.
CFG Analysis: Wilson continued his torrid spring with 467 yards passing and three scores in the Hog’s spring game. It looks like Wilson will post big numbers this season sans Bobby Petrino. He could easily be a #1 fantasy QB in most formats this season.
WR Jordan Matthews remains Commodores top pass catching option.
Matthews developed a good rapport with QB Jordan Rodgers last season and showed it has continued with his 105 yards receiving and two score effort in the spring game. He could very easily jump into the high #2 or low #1 fantasy territory this fall.
QB Teddy Bridgewater finishes off terrific spring.
Bridgewater showed his fantasy potential all spring and capped it off with 257 yards passing and three scores. He was a highly touted recruit last season and looks to have built upon that talent this year. It could all come together for this talented youngster this season and fantasy owners would be wise to take notice.
QB Bryn Renner looks comfortable in new offense.
Renner threw for 295 yards and two scores in the North Carolina spring game. He could put up some nice numbers this season running the fast paced offense of Larry Fedora. Consider him a #2 QB in BCS only leagues with some upside.
RB Mike Gillislee staking claim as top Gators back.
CFG Analysis: Gillislee has had a nice spring and looks to be the forerunner for the starting RB position. He has worked hard to become a complete running back and it appears to have paid off for him. Take a wait and see approach.
WR DeAndre Hopkins ready to explode
Hopkins has added 20 pounds and put that to good use in the spring game, tallying 120 receiving yards and a touchdown. He could see plenty of one on one coverage with Sammy Watkins on the other side. Hopkins just missed having a 1000-yard season last year, but should surpass that mark this fall.
QB job still up for grabs as spring ends.
The trio of Mike Bercovici, Michael Eubank, and Taylor Kelly all played well in the ASU spring game and all appear to still be in the running for the starting gig. Our front-runner is Eubank due to his ability to run the football and his 242-pound frame. Whoever wins the job will have some fantasy potential in Todd Graham’s fast paced offense.
Big things could lie ahead for QB Jeff Tuel.
CFG Analysis: Tuel looked very sharp in the Wazzu spring game, completing 19 of 21 passes for 285 yards and 2 touchdowns. The sky is the limit for Tuel and the Washington State passing game with Mike Leach on board, and fantasy owners should be salivating at the shot to snare Tuel in 2012.
