CUSA Fantasy Football Mock Draft

Fantasy football is fun, and most of us play it. However, most of us only play NFL fantasy football. Well fantasy football for college can be just as fun if not more fun. So I thought we should have a little fun on a Friday. Lets put together a fantasy football mock draft for CUSA only. I think this is much better than putting together an All Conference list. Below you’ll see the results of a 4 team fantasy football mock snake draft. Feel free to comment, critique, and criticize.

Team 1
QB Brent Stockstill, So., Middle Tennessee
RB Aaron Jones, Sr., UTEP
RB Alex Gardner, Jr., FIU
WR Taywan Taylor, Sr., WKU
WR Carlos Henderson, Jr., Louisiana Tech
WR Austin Duke, Sr., Charlotte
TE Kelvin Smith, Fr., North Texas
DEF Marshall
K Jay Mattox, Sr., UTEP

Thoughts:

  • Stockstill should be a fantasy machine under new OC Tony Franklin.
  • Jones returns after an injury kept him out last year. He should put up big numbers again behind a great OL.
  • Marshall is probably the best defense in CUSA.
  • Gardner is a bit of a sleeper. He had 246 (186 carries 60 receptions) touches last year.
  • Taylor is WKU’s best WR, but who is throwing him the ball?
  • Kelvin Smith?!? Well he did have a huge spring game for NT. He may see a huge number of targets for the Mean Green this year. Could be sleeper pick of the year.

Team 2
QB Nick Mullens, Sr., Southern Miss
RB Kalif Phillips, Sr., Charlotte
RB Jeffrey Wilson, Jr., North Texas
WR Trent Taylor, Sr., Louisiana Tech
WR Deon-Tay McManus, Jr., Marshall
WR Zach Wright, Sr., Rice
TE Hayden Plinke, Sr., UTEP
DEF Middle Tennessee
K Jonathan Barnes, Jr., Louisiana Tech

Thoughts:

  • Mullens didnt go first? Probably because he lost a lot of weapons, and his coaches.
  • Phillips and Wilson could have amazing years or they could struggle behind suspect OL’s.
  • Taylor is another WR who could suffer from his QB play. He still is a key COG in the Tech offense.
  • McManus should have a break-out year.
  • Plinke should benefit from Aaron Jones being back, and new QB Zach Greenlee.

Team 3
QB Chase Litton, So., Marshall
RB Ito Smith, Jr., Southern Miss
RB Jarveon Williams, Sr., UTSA
WR DJ Thompson Sr., Southern Miss
WR Tee Goree,So., North Texas
WR Nicholas Norris, Sr., WKU
TE Jonnu Smith, Sr., FIU
DEF Southern Miss
K Nick Smith, Jr., Marshall

Thoughts:

  • Smith and Williams are dynamic backs that will produce in the running game and passing game.
  • Thompson is set-up to be Mullens go-to target this year.
  • Goree is a sleeper. North Texas will throw the ball more so somebody has to catch’em.
  • Norris was a great get that late in the draft.
  • Jonnu Smith is the best TE in CUSA.

 


Team 4
QB Alex McGough, Jr., FIU
RB Ray Lawry, Jr., Old Dominion
RB Anthony Wales, Sr., WKU
WR Richie James, So., Middle Tennessee
WR Zach Pascal, Sr., Old Dominion
WR Kerry Thomas Jr. ,Jr., UTSA
TE Ryan Yurachek, Jr., Marshall
DEF FAU
K Trevor Moore Jr., North Texas

Thoughts:

  • After the 3 top QB’s were gone it was wise to get talent before taking a QB.
  • McGough was a safe pick.
  • McGough had a solid year last year, but there were other QBs who could put up bigger numbers.
  • James put up huge numbers last year, and should have a great year. POY candidate.
  • Wales may lose carries with Leon Allen back.
  • Lawry is the best player for ODU.
  • Thomas is and under the radar guy, who might have a huge year.
  • FAU could challenge Marshall for the best defense.
