Top 25 Fantasy College Football Players for the 2016 Season

Gabe Marks and Luke Falk are set to break all kinds of records for the Cougars this season, but where do they fall on our list?

While FanDuel and DraftKings have pulled out of college sports, we have confirmed that several ‘smaller’ websites will host college football contests throughout the 2016 season. There is no doubt that this will be a major selling point for these websites and at least one of them will likely emerge as a new leader for daily fantasy college sports.

With that in mind, it’s time to start prepping for the college football season, and that means identifying the top names in the sport. For the sake of this list we are going to focus on the power 5 schools. However, next week we will release our top players outside of the power 5 list, and ultimately will create preseason positional rankings and week 1 player rankings. Make sure you subscribe to get Fantasy College Football coverage that you can’t find anywhere else.

Here are the top players that just narrowly missed the list: Christian Kirk, River Cracraft, Jake Butt, O.J. Howard, Isaiah Ford, Saquon Barkley, Wayne Gallman, Brad Kaaya, Mike Williams, Josh Rosen, Malik Zaire, Mike Warren, James Washington, Shock Linwood, Nick Wilson, Joe Mixon, Bralon Addison, … Man! That is a loaded list… It’s going to be a great college football season.

Admittedly this list is skewed slightly towards the better talent… an all things being equal take. Our week-to-week rankings will look drastically different from this list… Here is our top 25 power 5 fantasy college football players for the 2016 season:

      Small school article will be out later this week, working on about 3 college football articles for this week. We are still working to find a DFS partner for this college football season. We will be hosting season-long college football leagues, but daily is a challenge given recent legislation. Definitely not FanDuel or DraftKings, we will see if there is another site that steps up.
