Over the last couple of weeks, we've begun previewing the incoming 2019 NFL Draft Class. We started off with the wide receivers and followed it with the running backs.

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Bowl Season - Week 3 Edition)

The smaller bowl games always bring excitement and intrigue. And this year even made some history. The First Responder Bowl is believed to be the first bowl game in NCAA history to be canceled because of weather.

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Bowl Season - Week 2 Edition)

The first week of bowls is past and it was a mixed bag of results. Some games were competitive while others turned into blowouts quickly. This week continues the matchups of non-traditional power programs, but also features some of the better offenses in the country. Today, we'll take a look at three prospects, including one...

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Bowl Season - Week 1 Edition)

Bowl season is finally here. We're still a few weeks away from deciding the national champion, but there are some intriguing NFL prospects in early games. There's a misguided belief that top dynasty assets exclusively come from traditional powerhouse programs, but there's plenty of talent in these early games. And if you look close enough,...

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Conference Championship Week Edition)

If you're a fan of chaos, Rivalry Week may have fallen a little short with only one significant upset, but with four top ten teams suffering a loss, the college football rankings have been changed in a big way.

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Week 13 Edition)

There's not a lot to be said for Week 12. I said in my preview last week that the slate was fairly ugly and it, mostly, lived up to that statement. It did, however, serve as a perfect warmup for Week 13. Rivalry week is here. We've got the Apple Cup and Civil War out... Read More

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Week 12 Edition)

Week 11 didn't have much drama among the playoff contending teams. Oklahoma had a scare in their rivalry game, but ultimately left with a win. And with all of the top teams winning, there was no change into top 10 of the College Football Playoff rankings. Week 12 is an ugly slate of games for... Read More

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Week 11 Edition)

Week 10 was arguably the most anticipated set of games of the year. And while they did have a meaningful impact on the college football playoff rankings, they fell short of the classic games you've come to expect from top ten matchups. Week 11 isn't exactly a top slate of games, but sometimes those are... Read More

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Week 10 Edition)

Week 9 was a fun one. A few of the top 10 teams established their dominance and make a case for the college football playoff while two top ten teams were somewhat exposed and now appear to be on the outside looking in. This week should be another fun one with a handful of meaningful... Read More

Top College Prospects - Dynasty League Scouting (Week 9 Edition)

Week 8 was terrible. Just awful. Ok, I'm just being a bit spiteful since I'm an Ohio State fan and had to watch my team suffer another embarrassing road loss as a multiple score favorite. But if you're not a grumpy Ohio State fan like myself, you probably really enjoyed another weekend of games that featured... Read More

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 8 Edition)

I thought that Week 7 was going to be one of the better weeks of the season, but, even while thinking that, I could not have predicted the mayhem that occurred. The top 10 rankings had to be completely overhauled with four top 10 losses and we were close to one more. Week 8 features... Read More

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 7 Edition)

Traditional powers appear to be back in a big way in college football. Texas has bounced back from their week 1 loss to Maryland and appears to be a contender in the Big12.

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 6 Edition)

It's going to be difficult to top the showcase game from week 5 this week, but that's also probably the case for the rest of the season. Week 6 features one of the longest rivalries in all of sports between Oklahoma and Texas, but there's also lower profile matchups that should provide entertainment throughout the... Read More

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 5 Edition)

Week four went better than expected. There was a major comeback in a high profile game and there was a shocking upset. On a week that wasn't expected to provide much entertainment value, it was a strong week. There are huge playoff implications for two games in week five. The winners of the Penn State/Ohio...

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 4 Edition)

Week three was a bucket of joy from a fan perspective. There were one possession games, highly competitive matchups between ranked teams, and even major upsets. And it's a good time to hold onto those memories as we approach week four. Week four is typically not the best slate of games from a competitive stand... Read More

Ahead of The Game - College Devy Prospects (Week 3 Edition)

Week three is here and we're starting to get into the matchups that will decide the playoff, this year. We have big-time non-conference games and some conference openers between meaningful teams.

Ahead of the Game - College Devy Prospects to Watch (Week 2)

The first week of college football started the season off with a bang. Not only were there matchups with playoff implications, but there was excitement in several of the lower-profile games to make up for some of the lopsided wins in the showcase games. Week 2 isn't the best slate of games with only one... Read More

Ahead of the Game - College Devy Prospects to Watch (Week 1)

Let's be very clear about something. Last week was a great appetizer, but the entree that is the college football season has just arrived.

College football is back! And even more than just that enjoyment of football being back on your TV, it's an early opportunity to see potential NFL talent before your league-mates.

Ahead of the Game - 2019 College Football Running Back Prospects

In my series preview, I presented five draft-eligible wide receivers who project to be early NFL draft selections and potentially great dynasty assets. Today, I'll focus on the running back position, specifically the top three RBs who were expected to declare for the 2018 class and made the late decision to return to school. Typically,... Read More

Dynasty Rookie Rankings Update (Post-NFL Draft Edition)

Boy, the draft can seriously turn things on its head. Pretty much the only thing that stayed steady from the pre-draft process was that Saquon Barkley is the 1.01. And while there were some near-perfect landing spots, many intriguing rookies landed in non-ideal locations and the late second round has lost some of its shine.... Read More

Dynasty Rookie Rankings Update (Pre-NFL Draft Edition)

It's a bit cliche to say "The countdown is on" when speaking about the NFL Draft, but, as we're only weeks away, it's also accurate. For dynasty players, this is one of the biggest moments of the off-season. And once the draft locations are determined, rookie drafts will follow shortly thereafter. Everyone knows the names,...
