I haven’t done much writing this season on the site due to other priorities, but Adam has done a great job (If you don’t follow him on Twitter yet you should @PutBoobieIn). I’m not as big into the daily aspect of college football as some so I want to provide some of you that play the seasonal game some content. Whether you are in a keeper league or a full on dynasty league, this may be helpful to you. The season is over for most players but if you are allowed to make some acquisitions in your league before the final week, then here are some guys that may be worth a stash for next season and beyond.
Jake Rodrigues, Sand Diego State
The Oregon transfer is a guy to keep an eye on in 2015. He played very minimally for the Ducks and could potentially be a star in the Mountain West with many of the stud quarterbacks graduating.
Malik Zaire, Notre Dame
Zaire was one of the highest rated quarterbacks in the 2013 class. He has star written all over him but can he hold up to the pressure of playing quarterback for Notre Dame. I think he can and will in 2015 and beyond and is worth owning especially if you are losing some QBs after this year.
Lamar Jordan, New Mexico
Jordan, a freshman, has finally taken over the starting job for the Lobos and his playmaking ability opens up the offense. He is still learning but could be a very valuable player next season as New Mexico loves to utilize the quarterback’s legs. Again, in a dynasty league, many of the top QBs are already taken, this guy may be flying under the radar in your league.
Racean “Roc” Thomas, Auburn
This freshman could be in line for huge numbers in his sophomore season in 2015. With Grant and Artis-Payne both leaving after this season, the door is open for him to shine and I expect him to do so. Auburn will be breaking in a new quarterback (although he’s played quite a bit) in Jeremy Johnson, so I expect the ground game to continue to roll.
Jeremy McNichols, Boise State
If Jay Ajayi does not enter the NFL Draft, I will be shocked. The Broncos will be looking for a playmaker as they don’t have a clear cut #2 back right now. McNichols, a freshman, burned his redshirt in the October 4th game against Nevada and touched the ball in a multitude of ways. Although his touches have been limited, he could be in line for a big step up in 2015. In a deep dynasty league, McNichols may be worth snagging as he may be listed as both a RB and a WR.
Robbie Rhodes, Bowling Green
Rhodes was a 5-star recruit that committed to Baylor in the 2013 class who had a couple run ins with the law that eventually led to his dismissal. After being dismissed from Baylor and sitting out the 2014 season, he should be ready to play in a Dino Babers offense that should be much better in 2015. He will have three years of eligibility which makes Rhodes a potential stud for your dynasty team for a while.
Demore’ea Stringfellow, Ole Miss
The story behind Stringfellow is quite unique. He was a top WR prospect in the 2013 class who committed to Washington. He was involved in an altercation following the Super Bowl that Seattle won and was later dismissed from the team. All signs were that he was transferring to Nebraska until a last minute switch to Ole Miss. This will give the Rebels two of the top 10 WRs in the 2013 class (Treadwell, #1 ESPN 300 WR). If the Rebels settle on a quarterback, they won’t lack the weapons on the outside, that’s for sure.
Again, I want to apologize for the lack of content this season. I’m glad I’ve got a great group of guys that contribute to the site and keep it fresh. Thanks for reading guys.
