2020 College Fantasy Football Player Rankings [Updated 8-26-2020!]

John Laub and Eric Froton are back on campus with their College Fantasy Football Rankings for the 2020 season.

I kicked off my CFF fandom 12 years ago. At the time, one website (College Football Geek) offered insight into the game and ranked players. It reminded me of the early Nineties when I first started playing NFL fantasy football. I had to search for information in local newspapers, national magazines and watch ESPN. In order to make an informed decision, I had to filter all of the material and knowledge through a fantasy lens.


College Fantasy Football provides alternative-reality zealots, NFL Draftniks, and Dynasty and Devy owners a competitive advantage against their opponents. What are you waiting for this summer? Get off the sideline and into the game on Fantrax. We guarantee that you will not regret playing in a CFF league this fall.


It was a challenge to even find a fantasy web site to host a league, and the one site that offered the game did not include a live-scoring option. I had to figure out who was leading in my matchups by pen and paper before the final results were published on Sunday afternoon. It was the wild west of fantasy sports…I loved it.

In 2008, I drafted Tim Tebow, Todd Reesing, Kellen Moore, LeSean McCoy, Knowshon Moreno, Dez Bryant, and Michael Crabtree. Managing two teams, I posted a combined 17-3 record and captured championships in both leagues. I have been addicted to college fantasy football ever since.

I enjoy multiple perspectives and insights and want to provide readers with more knowledge to prepare for their CFF drafts and win championships. Seven years ago, I published my first CFF Game Plan in order to offer additional acumen into the hobby. For the second year, I provide Fantrax with my CFF player rankings along with Eric Froton.

Enjoy, my fellow fantasy fanatics!
