First Down: 2024 College Fantasy Football Rankings

I love the month of March. Baseball training camp is in full swing, and the start of the season is just around the corner. I am preparing for my 35th campaign of fantasy baseball. March Madness is the perfect end over the final two weeks of the month, and the UConn Huskies (my team) are one of the favorites to capture their sixth National Championship. The NFL Draft is near, and it is Dynasty Rookie season for fantasy diehards like myself.

Of course, spring football practices commence across the nation on campuses. All this means it is time to break out the first iteration of my 2024 College Fantasy Football Rankings! College football fans get a first look at updated depth charts and CFF Player Rankings. It will be my seventeen year playing college fantasy football, and the tenth season publishing rankings for fellow CFF diehards. I am fired up to kickoff the crusade.

There’s no such thing as too much football! 2022 is the perfect time to add the college game to your fantasy football repertoire. Whether you want to create your own league or join an existing league, the Fantrax College Football Commissioner is the place to go!


With so many sites now publishing college fantasy football information, 2024 is the year to join a CFF league for the first time. While some fantasy fans are intimidated by the massive player pool, I suggest that readers join a CFF Best Ball league on Fantrax to become familiar with the teams and players across the nation…you will not be disappointed.

Suggested CFF Best Ball Rosters and Basic Scoring

  • 26 Rounds in Draft

Starting Lineup:

  • 9 Weekly Starters
  • 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE and 1 Flex


  • Passing TD, Rushing TD and Receiving TD: 6 points
  • Passing yards: .04 per yard
  • Rushing & Receiving yards: .10 per yard
  • Receptions: 1 point each

Undervalued CFF Players

I have participated in three CFF Best Ball drafts already, and have a good understanding of the player pool. I pinpointed three undervalued players at each position and posted polls on Twitter to gain insight from other CFF players.


  1.  Miller Moss, USC
  2.  Brady Cook, Missouri
  3.  Rocco Becht, Iowa State

College Fantasy Football on Fire!

Among the quartet listed, identify the most undervalued CFF quarterback in early drafts:

  • Dequan Finn, Baylor: 19%
  • Garrett Nussmeier, LSU: 33%
  • Rocco Becht, ISU: 16%
  • Conner Weigman, Texas A&M: 32%

“For CFF, I’m out on Dequan Finn for this year. I know I’m out on Rocco Becht, and while I love Conner Weigman for DEVY, I just see Texas A&M playing defense and running it too much to value Weigman highly. So it has to be Garrett Nussmeier for me.” @cusumano_sal

“I think for the CFF Diehards that Garrett Nussmeier and Conner Weigman have value, especially with how Weigman played prior to injury. Nuss got the money bag from LSU to stay and think he pushed Jayden Daniels to get to the next level.

With that being said, it is Dequan Finn…playing at a small school like Toledo, many college fans may not pay attention to the Rockets. He had over 3,100 total yds and 29 TDs. Finn opened up lanes for Peny Boone to take off, and Finn enabled four receivers to average over 12 yards per catch (ypc.). Finn at Baylor should continue to rise.” @_NinoBrown_

“Dequan Finn for me. Yet, small fish in big ponds fizzle more often than they dazzle.” @aceholesrule

“Right now, the only one that I am even interested in is Garrett Nussmeier. The other three have too many questions…Dequan Finn to Baylor was such a disappointment.” @JustinNottingh6

Running Backs

  1.  Dean Connors, Rice
  2.  Jahiem White, West Virginia
  3.  Kyle Monangai, Rutgers


College Fantasy Football on Fire!

Among G5 programs, identify the most overlooked CFF running back among the quartet:

  • Kay’Ron Adams, UMass: 24%
  • Dean Connors, Rice: 20%
  • Mario Anderson, Memphis: 30%
  • Kanye Roberts, Appalachian State: 26%

“Give me Kanye Roberts especially with Nate Noel hitting the portal. Roberts averaged six yards per carry for Appalachian State last season, including a two-touchdown performance versus a solid Troy defense. He flashed receiving skills with 14 receptions for 113 yards…mind you as a Freshman. He has great contact balance shown with 400-plus yards after the catch. It is Robert’s Season!” @_NinoBrown_

“With Dean Connors beginning to get some early off-season attention (thus, not being so overlooked anymore), we think Mario Anderson is the big winner from this group. He should fill in nicely for the departure of 2023 CFF RB No. 4 overall, Blake Watson.” @CfFLists

Wide Receivers

  1.  Kyren Lacy, LSU
  2.  Jayden Higgins, Iowa State
  3.  Eric Singleton, Georgia Tech

College Fantasy Football on Fire!

In early drafts, identify the underrated CFF wide receiver among those listed:

  • Malachi Fields, Virginia: 25%
  • Kobe Hudson, UCF: 34%
  • Josh Kelly, Texas Tech: 15%
  • Will Shepard, Colorado: 26%

“Kobe Hudson for me, but this should be a close vote!” @aceholesrule

“Malachi Fields: Young man is built like a tight end with the athleticism of a wide receiver. Not many people realize he was targeted 100-plus times even with Malik Washington on the roster. Fields accumulated 58 receptions for 811 yards and five touchdowns last season. He is a deep play threat that averaged over 14 yards per catch.

I watched him out leap the Boston College secondary for a touchdown to end the half last season. No other Cavaliers’ receiver on the team was close to Fields in targets, receptions, yards or touchdowns outside of Washington. Virginia brought in Chris Tyree (RB turned WR) and Trell Harris from Kent State. It is Fields season, and I’m not talking about Justin.” @_NinoBrown_

“I am going with Kobe Hudson, but it’s close between him and Will Shepard for me.” @cusumano_sal

“Time for the Kobe Hudson show at maximum level.” @CFFLists

Tight Ends

  1.  Caden Prieskorn, Mississippi
  2.  Terrance Ferguson, Oregon
  3.  Benjamin Brahmer, Iowa State

College Fantasy Football on Fire!

While building a CFF roster, do you prefer to select a Top 5 Tight End or dumpster dive at the position during the draft?

  • Draft a Top 5 Tight End: 22%
  • Dumpster Dive at Tight End: 69%
  • Not sure: 9%

“What if my Top 5 TEs are being taken where others are dumpster diving for TEs?” @CFF_Jared

“Both, draft a top 5 guy and pivot in season with dumpster diving once offense starts to indicate usage….” @BuffaloshoesFf

CFF King’s Classic Draft (Fourth Annual)

This summer, the family and I will vacation in Canton, Ohio, and attend the 2024 Fantasy Football Expo. For the fourth year, the CFF King’s Classic Draft will be held over the weekend. I am defending the title, and hopefully, become the first back-to-back winner. Meeting as many friends, colleagues, and CFF diehards as possible highlights the weekend. Please say hello at the FF Expo and/or watch the draft live on YouTube.

2024 CFF Player Rankings

In order to make the transition into a new fantasy format, College Fantasy Football player rankings provide an easy access point into the game. I will update the rankings throughout the spring and summer months to assist CFF managers…Enjoy my fellow CFF diehards!
