Fantasy preview of the AAC West
Our 2016 college fantasy football preview is at full steam. Today we’re hitting the American Athletic Conference’s West Division (the East came Monday; catch up on all our previews here). It features one of the top overall players across the entire college landscape.
The Cougars not only finished the 2015 season with a 13-1 record and a victory over Florida State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, but also landed the highest-rated non-Power Five recruiting class in history. With only 57 percent of snaps returning from last season’s roster, they’ll need all the help they can get. The positions hit the hardest were running back (85 percent gone) and offensive line (51 percent). Head coach Tom Herman is a schematic revolutionary who stepped in and led an overlooked program into the College Playoff conversation.
