FROM THE SHOTGUN…Week Eight QB Start/Sit

Can you believe it….already Week Eight! The 2009 college football season, for the fantasy crowd, is almost over.  Most of your leagues are in the home stretch…fighting for playoff spots…upsetting the playoff apple-cart for your rivals….trying to keep out of the cellar….wondering why your star player early in the season has now turned into Buster […]

Feast or Famine: Take a Look at Those Tight Ends

Is the Tight End position the black hole of Fantasy College Football?  In a season that seemed destined to be the year of the Tight End with players such as Jermaine Gresham, Dennis Pitta, Tony Moaeki and Rob Gronkowski being drafted extremely early in expert league drafts, most teams have been left playing TE roulette […]


Welcome Back, Kaepernick! Because I ran out of clever things to say beyond mis-quoting titles of 70′s TV shows, we at FCB welcome the return of Nevada QB Colin Kaepernick (photo, thanks IconSMI) after an early season of sluggish stats and no wins. However, in Nevada’s 63-28 win over UNLV this past weekend, Kaepernick and […]

Saturday Morning College Football Breakfast Burrito

While Vince Mullins is away at sea, Daniel Freer will prepare this morning’s Fantasy College Blitz Saturday Morning Breakfast Burrito.  Hopefully, he will make a better burrito than last week.  His burrito last week was somewhere between the Penn State offense and the Florida State offense from September 26th. Can you believe it…it is already […]

Fantasy impact: Tim Tebow's injury

Unless you live under a rock, you know that Florida QB Tim Tebow was knocked out of Florida’s 41-7 victory against Kentucky after a hard shot to the head in the third quarter, and taken by ambulance to a hospital. Currently it’s unknown how this hit will affect his status for the Gators’ matchup against […]


Unfortunately, in football, injuries are common…. Sometimes too common. This past Saturday, South Florida QB Matt Grothe was lost for the season as he tore the ACL in his left knee during the first half of the Bulls 59-0 win over Charleston Southern…thus ending the collegiate career of the possible four year starting QB. Grothe led the Bulls […]


Nothing like consistency…. That is what you get with Houston QB Case Keenum (photo, thanks Scout.com). While other QBs make fantasy players, coaches, owners, prognosticators, et al…make one stupid with inconsistency, Keenum makes everyone look like a genius. Keenum led Oklahoma State to a 45-35 win in Stillwater last weekend, while putting up some good […]


One of the things I keep bringing up with my FCB colleagues and fantasy players is that, in college football, experience on the offensive line is so important to a college offense. In college football, having an offensive line with experience is a huge advantage.  Unlike pro football, where more training time is allowed, and, […]
