Never head of this before... but thought it was interesting.  It appears to be an advice site for people playing fantasy football, including fantasy college football.


Every week, our college staff will recommend studs and duds for your lineup, but we aren’t going to cover a few players. Why? We think these are every week starts – unless you see them in our dud report. We will add and take away from this list as the year progresses, but this is something to keep in mind when you read this report. We are trying to identify a second-tier of players which will shine for your lineup.

The first entry under "Studs"...

QB Matt Grothe, South Florida Bulls

Matt Grothe was one of my favorite sleepers in 2006. Now, with one year of experience under his belt, I think he has the ability to make South Florida a Big East contender. Although it could be at least one more year with players such as Pat White, Steve Slaton, and Brian Brohm still in the conference. In week one, Grothe got his Bulls off to a good start with a 28-13 win over Elon. He played very well, completing 23 of 39 passes for 238 yards, 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. He also carried the ball eight times for 22 yards. Next week, South Florida will have a much tougher opponent in Auburn. Look for Grothe to play well and probably get more yards running the ball than he did in week one.

Listed last under "Duds"...

DEF Auburn Tigers

When the Tigers scheduled this match-up against South Florida, I’m pretty sure they didn’t think the Bulls would be top 25 material. After all, the Bulls just started their football team in 1996 and are still experiencing a lot of “firsts for the program.†This will be the first match-up between Auburn and South Florida and while most fantasy owners usually like starting the Tiger defense, we’d recommend shying away from them. Against Kansas State, the Tiger offense had their share of struggles and the defense had to bail them out at the end of the game. The Bulls have a solid quarterback in Matt Grothe and an improving group of running backs and receivers, which will give the Tiger defense fits. It may not be a shootout, but the Bulls could have success consistently moving the ball and it wouldn’t surprise us to see South Florida notch more than 20 points.
