ESPN College Football Challenge: Week 1 Strategy + Roster
Last year was my best ever College Football Challenge, finishing in the top 100. Here's a recap of my strategy that I used last year:
QBs: Dual threat QBs (Mariota) or Option QBs who might throw a TD here or there (C. Fajardo) . The rushing yards and TDs really add up, just ask Keenan Reynolds.
WRs/RBs: Find a top 20 player going against a bottom 20 rushing or passing defense. Obviously more credit for a player if they are in a run or pass heavy offense.
K: High scoring offenses against weakest opponent (Typically an FCS team)
Def: Find the best team against the weakest opponent (Typically an FCS team)
What you have to watch out for is when a game can get too out of hand in a first half. There were instances last year when Baylor was crushing at halftime and the starters didn't see time in second half.
Week 1 Roster
Alternate Week 1 Options
QBs: Bryce Petty (BAY) and Taysom Hill (OD)
RBs: Jahwan Edwards (BALL)
