Six points with David Dorey: College Bowl Edition


The NFL season is concluding and fantasy championships are happening. All that time and effort is paying off for a select few – Hope it is you! For the next few weeks, you may watch a college bowl game or two. Here’s the cheat sheet on which players are wrapping up their college resume’ and getting ready to become the next crop of NFL rookies.

The players listed are expected to be drafted in the first four rounds – by far the ones that are most likely to yield fantasy value in their first year. Players are noted with a “(J)” to show they are a junior and a “(1/2)” to indicate they are likely to be taken in the first two rounds and therefore are even more important to watch.

Not all of the 30+ bowls left to play are listed. Just the ones with players sure to attract the most fantasy attention.
