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) 
  • WRs: Deontay Granberry (HOU) and Justin Hardy (NCCU)
  • K: Oregon Ducks
  • Def: Oregon Ducks and Florida Gators

  2. It is strongly true that video is one of the most powerful tools on the internet and it allows people to not only see and hear you, but it lets them feel our enthusiasm and excitement for whatever it is that we are talking about. Personally I believe that philosophy. These video clips are really effective to promote this job.Daily Fantasy Sports Strategy
