College Football Focus’ exclusive grading and signature statistics, provided in this comprehensive fantasy breakdown of FBS rosters, offers a sizable advantage to subscribers. The college football edition of the classic fantasy NFL game significantly differs as every position on the field owns a considerably shorter half-life.

While the obvious open competitions and injury situations remain, “player contracts” are essentially limited to a four-year eligibility that requires a different approach to qualifying its options. In order to meet this need, the application of the invaluable CFF-exclusive data feeds are examined from past player performance to predict future fantasy production.

In order to pinpoint the key players that will impact the daily fantasy sports (found on DFS sites like FanDuel and DraftKings), redraft, and devy formats, this information will prove to be vital as a reference point for the upcoming season. Let’s continue researching the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) split into the Atlantic and Coastal divisions and begin the wide receiver analysis of Coastal rosters, listed in alphabetical order by team.

 

 

WRs Max McCaffrey / Johnell Barnes / Terrence Alls / Chris Taylor / Keyston Fuller – Duke Blue Devils

    “This is an offense that will most likely find that its most consistent progress will come on the legs of stud-junior RB Gus Edwards”

    Uh, what? Gus Edwards is in no way, shape, or form a stud. He sucks.

      That depends on the format to which you are referring. Many players can hold significant fantasy value despite real-life deficiencies.

      In the case of Edwards, even at 6’2″, 230 pounds, he runs a 4.58 forty and has a 31.5″ vertical. As you will learn in my next release, Edwards would have posted 1,378 rushing yards and 23.7 TDs (based upon his own 2014 metrics) if he was given the same workload Duke Johnson received in ’14.

      I could further the debate … but you can read about it my next article featuring the ACC Coastal RBs.
