Industry CFF Group of 5 Draft

Thursday, July 5, 2018


During the last week of June, I convened 15 college fantasy football experts from around the industry to take part in two BestBall leagues: One Power 5 league, and one Group of 5 league. These were not “mock drafts.” Both leagues required fees and will be played out. Upon completion of the draft, I asked each owner to answer five questions about each draft. Those answers are below. The Power 5 installment drops next week.

1. What was your strategy going into the draft, and were you able to implement it? What do you like and dislike about your team?

 

Crawford: I definitely was going to take a BPA (best-player available) approach in this format, and I think I implemented it; with a couple notable exceptions late because of position scarcity. I like a lot about my team. I think it's balanced, and I think there are solid players throughout the roster. It may lack in star power outside of the QB position, but I feel confident in all my early picks performing well.

Hall: I love drafting in the middle and in a 15 owner league that wasn’t a bad place for me to be. I wanted to get a QB, RB, and WR to build around. Getting Evans in Round 1 and Brown in Round 2 was about as good as it could get for me. Marcus Green might appear to be drafted too high but if Evans is having a great year with his arm then Green will also be having a great year. The one piece I don’t love is my QB depth. Outside of Evans it really drops off. I think Banks is one of those guys that could put together a good season but we’ll see.

Chevalier: My strategy was to target D’Eriq King in the 1st, then take best available RB or WR from there. I was definitely able to do that. I really like my WR’s for a PPR, best ball format. I am really thin at TE, defense & kicker, which is intentional, but probably too risky.

Bainbridge: This was my first time participating in a Best Ball draft so really didn’t have any specific strategy. Just draft the best players possible and make sure I have sufficient depth at each position to withstand any injuries. I love my top two receivers who are both Top 10 options this year in CFF. I am not as pleased with my running backs if I am being honest. Some good options, but nobody that will be a star.

Laub: In such a challenging league, I wanted to draft a high-risk, high-ceiling team. The only way to bring home the trophy against so many incredible owners is to take calculated risks. I am not interested in finishing in the middle of the pack. Drafting at the back end of a 15-team league, I wanted to grab running backs immediately, and acquired Jonathan Ward and Shakif Seymour with my first two picks.

Brandt: My approach to this draft was to go running back heavy early. I was able to accomplish this very well. I really liked my running backs and not a big fan of my tight end position.

Marchese: I strayed pretty far from my normal strategy. I always avoid triple option offenses like the plague in standard leagues due to inconsistent performances and difficulty knowing which back will get the production. But here I decided to roll the dice with a few of them since one often goes off and I don't have to worry about guessing from week-to-week which one it will be given no lineup adjustments in this format. Fantrax changing Perry from RB to QB eligibility mid-draft and me missing out on Darnell Woolfolk or Andy Davidson put a little cramp in my strategy. I also implemented the strategy of taking talented transfers late like Michiah Quick and Tre Nixon. We will see how that plays out.

Lindquist: This was a draft where I tried as often as possible to go "best player available." It was a touch-and-go affair in terms of implementation, as I ended up straying from my queues at times, to my detriment. In general, "best available" has never been a strategy that I've been able to implement to a strong degree. I've found better luck sorting players into tiers, which allows a little more flexibility. That said, not everything was horrible. I'm infatuated with my receivers. Trevon Brown and Octavius Evans are two players who I've targeted in multiple drafts and I secured both of them, here. I'm more concerned with my quarterbacks. J'Mar Smith, Armani Rogers and Riley Neal are fine, but there's no clear-cut slam dunk on my roster that I feel I can trust week-in, week-out.

Allen: Roster construction is a huge deal in BestBall leagues so prior to the draft I decided how many players I wanted to end up with at each position, and built my strategy from there. Since two QB’s start each week, getting one early in the draft was a priority. After round one I hammered the running back and wide receiver positions to flesh out the core of my team. I also wanted to make sure I waited until my last couple of picks to select a kicker. I liked that I was able to take four consecutive running backs in rounds 2-to-4 to try and establish a high floor each week. I was disappointed that there were five quarterbacks selected in a row prior to my first round pick which resulted in me settling on North Texas junior QB Mason Fine.

Francis: This draft felt pretty unpredictable. I chased quite a few ceilings in this one. I prioritized volume running backs again and also figured I could punt for a few rounds at QB. I’m thrilled with how I ended up at QB. In Marshall QB Alex Thomson and Liberty QB Buckshot Calvert I’ve got two guys that should throw it 40 times per game. I was able to take three potential spike players at QB in Texas State QB Willie Jones (AKA STEAMIN’ WILLIE BEAMEN) UTEP QB Kai Locksley, and New Mexico QB Tevaka Tuioti (AKA THE SAMOAN KHALIL TATE). My WRs are my weak spot. I’ll need some luck with them.

Huber: Picking sixth …. one goal: maximize weighted rushing statistics. Basing all of my picks on personal ranks, if neither Devin Singletary or Juwan Washington were available, securing Nathan Rourke was my fallback option. Rourke is gold when 100 percent. Post-draft regret passing on Xavier Jones in the third. The quality of my backfield will be dependent upon the growth/success of Nic Smith and the health of James Gilbert. A boiling-hot confidence in my wideouts mixed with frigid uncertainty from an unproven TE group.

DiSalvo: After landing the 2nd pick of the draft, I targeted San Diego State RB Juwan Washington, assuming FAU RB Devin Singletary would go No. 1 overall.  Knowing this is a BestBall league and no in-season acquisitions, my strategy was to corner the San Diego State running back market.  By selecting Washington in Round 1, Chase Jasmin in Round 9, and Kaegun Williams in Round 15, I'm protected in case of an injury and guaranteed to have the Aztecs No. 1 RB every week.  I also wanted to target a top-tier DST early in the draft, so I selected Boise State in Round 7. 

Lubitz: Get the best player available and then after that some potential high ceiling guys.  Was able to some what but completely underestimated how quickly the top QBs would be snatched up.  That lead me to what I like about my team, the perceived depth at RB and WR but also what I dislike about it — my QBs.  Gonna need one of my QBs to hit and be a sleeper Top 10 type.

Nystrom: Like many, I’m a best-player-available guy in the first five rounds. After that, I pay very close attention to positional tiers and try to put myself in the position to grab the last guy of a tier, as opposed to the first of the next one. In this draft, picking 1.5, I was stunned and delighted to see Justice Hansen— the consensus No. 1 G5 QB heading into the year — drop to me. I stuck to best player available with my next four picks, and ended up snagging three receivers and an RB. After that, I monitored the ebbs and flows of the draft with regards to my position tiers and thought I snagged guys like Darius Bradwell, Benny LeMay and Drew Eckels/Reid Herring in spots where others were likely to pounce within the next three picks or so.

 

2. What was your favorite pick that you made, and what was your least favorite?


Crawford: I was thrilled to get Milton at that point in the draft. I don't think he's a pro prospect, but he's clearly a performer, and I think they'll lean on him as they try and repeat as AAC champions. I would have taken him with the second pick. I probably took Keesean Johnson a little too early. I think he's very underrated and he's been an excellent performer, but I can't help but wonder if I could have procured his services in the later rounds.

Hall: I was pretty pumped to get Corey Taylor in RD 8. He started off so good last year before injury and should get plenty of carries. That Tulsa offense has had 2 solid CFF backs at the same time before and Taylor could be a 1,000 yard rusher this year. Nate Becker at TE is the pick I want back. I had both Hescock from UCF and Smith from North Texas all queued up and I kept telling myself…one more round. Then I lost both. I settled for Becker. Looking back now feels like there was better value out there.

Chevalier: My favorite pick was D’Eriq King. He is my favorite CFF player. I have him in all of my 10+ fantasy leagues this year. I think he is a more accurate Greg Ward clone. Not that I am biased or anything. My least favorite pick was Jaylond Adams. I wanted Joshua Fields, but I had already maxed out the number of RB’s I could have on my roster. I do like Adams upside though.

Bainbridge: Favorite pick is probably Middle Tennessee QB Brent Stockstill in the 3rd round. He stays healthy and is a Top 20 CFF quarterback. Least favorite was Air Force full back Taven Birdow. Fullbacks haven’t been getting as many opportunities to run the football as they have in year’s past. There were some better options remaining on the board.

Laub: I am ecstatic that Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson remained available with the 44th pick overall. Jackson played only eight games last season yet still passed for over 2,000 yards and rushed for 197 yards. At 6-foot-7 and 245 pounds, the junior is a dynamic dual-threat playmaker and poised to become a CFF celebrity.

Brandt: My favorite pick would have been my first pick with Alexander Mattison. I am expecting a major season out of him. Getting him at the 4th pick was a nice start to my running back heavy approach. My lease favorite would be my tight end picks. I waited too long to nab a tight end and ended up having to salvage the best I could.

Marchese: Ryquell Armstead was my favorite. I see an improved Temple offense that was injury stricken last year. I expect a bit of a bounce back season from the 2017 preseason top 15 RB. My least favorite selection was probably Proche given his struggles in the spring. He could crush me if that continues or he could be an Air Raid monster if he's actually the benefactor of Quinn and Sutton moving on. 

Lindquist: My favorite pick, hands down, was BSU WR Octavius Evans in the fourth round. While he's not a proven quantity as of yet, he's stepping into a prime opportunity with Cedrick Wilson no longer on roster. My least favorite pick was that of Houston RB Terence Williams in the fifth round. Frankly, it was a huge misstep, one which may well end up submarining my squad. He would have been fine -- and available -- multiple rounds later, and while I do like that he's reuniting with former Baylor OC Kendal Briles in H-Town, you just can't be whiffing on early round picks in a 15-team G5 draft. It's just asking for trouble.

Allen: My favorite pick was Southern Miss senior QB Kwadra Griggs in the 11th round as my second quarterback. Griggs recorded two or more total touchdowns in 7-of-10 starts last season and bolsters his fantasy floor with rushing totals. My least favorite pick was sophomore TE Cameron Butler out of Colorado State. I should have waited a few more rounds before selecting a tight end since that likely won’t be a big difference maker.
 
Francis: My favorite pick was New Mexico QB Tevaka Tuioti (AKA THE SAMOAN KHALIL TATE). My least favorite was taking Houston RB Mulbah Car in the third and not pulling the trigger on Terence Williams as his handcuff. I’m alone on an island thinking he will be their bell cow. He prob determines my fate in this league and is without a doubt my biggest risk.

Huber: Before the RB player pool evaporated, Warren Wand fell into my lap in the sixth. After posting nearly 900 total yards and seven TDs last year, four of his O-linemen return for his senior season. Each of my hopeful three TE targets were selected among the first four TEs off the board. Mitchell Wilcox may have been an overreaction to that fact in the 10th. While I think the opportunity is there for him, It’s conceivable that I’ll score less than 10 points all season at the position. Expectations are so low that anything consistent will make me very happy.

DiSalvo: I really like my depth at running back and receiver, but I need production from a handful of unproven, yet talented, quarterbacks.  My least favorite pick was Ohio K Louis Zervos in Round 16.   I don't like to draft kickers because I usually stream them week-to-week, but this is a BestBall league with no waiver claims.  I was worried about my depth, so I opted on another position player over a second kicker. 

Lubitz: Kelton Moore Rd 5- Think this kid could have a real good year in that offense and in the MWC that doesn't play a whole lot of defense.  Least favorite: Jalin Moore Rd 2- Fool me once shame on you......you know the rest.  One of those guys that I've used a high draft pick on in a previous year and it didn't work out great so I just don't feel good about drafting him again this time.

Nystrom: Outside of Hansen, I’d probably say WR Scott Miller. Miller averaged almost 20 fantasy points per game in 2016 (74-968-10) before dropping off ever so slightly last year amid Bowling Green’s offensive inconsistency (63-722-4). With Bowling Green’s offense likely to be better in 2018, Miller makes for an extremely high upside receiver who’s floor is also extremely high. I was geeked to get him with a modest Round 5 investment. My least favorite pick was probably Ian Eriksen— through no fault of his own. After taking Eriksen, my mission was to handcufff him with his backfield mate Shaq Vann. Marchese snatched Vann in Round 14, a round or two before I wanted him. I kicked myself for not paying the premium— that’s on me. And that decision makes Eriksen more of a risk for my team than he had any right to be.

3. Name one pick another owner made in the top 10 rounds that made you insanely jealous.


Crawford: It's obvious, but, Devin Singletary. The dude is just insanely good, and there's no reason to think he can't put up similar numbers. He's a great bet to be the most productive player in college football in 2018, in my opinion.

Hall: Shamari Brooks in Round 2 by Mark. In fact every RB pick in Round 2 before my pick made me jealous but I had a plan to try and get Shamari Brooks and then come back and get Corey Taylor later on. Mark wrecked that strategy. But I’m good with settling for Spencer Brown.

Chevalier: Kyle Francis selected Tony Pollard in the ninth round. I secretly have dibs on Pollard in every fantasy draft I participate in. Kyle just didn’t get the memo, I guess.

Bainbridge: Nate was able to draft Temple running back Ryquell Armstead in Round 6. I know those that play CFF are hesitant on him as Armstead was a huge bust last year, but the guy was injured for the majority season. If he is at 100 percent health in 2018, Armstead is a steal at that point.

Laub: In the fourth round, I wanted to grab my third running back but Bill of theCFFsite stole my guy: Andrew Clair of BGSU. The sophomore is in line for a large workload for the Falcons and will easily gain over 1,000 yards rushing.

Brandt: I was disappointed to miss out on Damonte Coxie. After starting heavy at the running back position getting him to team with Dredick Snelson would have been a good start at the wide out position as well.

Marchese: Mark took Terence Williams toward the end of the 5th. I'm pretty jealous of that one given he was a target for me that I really wanted and hoped to take a couple rounds later. He's a guy I expect to have a big role given his history with Kendal Briles.

Lindquist: Mike Bainbridge's selection of Middle Tennessee QB Brent Stockstill in the third round. He went through the 2017 season in injury purgatory, but was quite the productive cat in each of his previous two campaigns, throwing for 3,000-plus yards and 30-plus touchdowns in both. If he can rebound from his (essentially) lost year, he could rebound in a big way.

Allen: This sounds like a cop-out, but I was really hoping I would get the 1st overall pick so I could select FAU junior RB Devin Singletary. He is the ultimate high-floor, high-upside player every team dreams of having.

Francis: Mark Lundquist taking Terence Williams in the fifth and Thor Nystrom taking Tulane RB Darius Bradwell in the sixth - he could be a monster. Last but not least, Joe DiSalvo taking Marcel Williams in the tenth caused me physical and mental anguish.

Huber: Starting QB->WR with my first two picks, I had aspirations of securing at least two of four available RBs starting with the thirty-sixth pick. Decided on Nic Smith, then the dismay I felt watching Xavier Jones drafted at 3.09 paled in comparison to the misery felt when Andrew Clair and Marquis Young were selected seven, and nine picks later. Knew it was unlikely Jones would make it back to me, but Clair was my primary target.

DiSalvo: I was really surprised that Colorado State receiver Preston Williams was available in Round 4.  Having to wait 26 picks before you get back on the clock is painful.  I kept watching Williams slip pick-by-pick, until Thor grabbed him three picks ahead of me in Round 4.

Lubitz: Armani Rogers in Round 6. As a Vegas guy I love this kid.  Think he will be that much better this year and could really put up some big numbers.  Especially on a team that doesn't play any defense and will likely spend most of the season in shootouts.  Wanted him bad just because.

Nystrom: As mentioned, I expect Bowling Green’s offense to be noticeably better in 2018. In Round 4, I was eying RB Andrew Clair, but Bill put me out of my misery by taking him with the first pick in that round. Bonus: I turned my attention to Octavius Evans, but Lindquist snatched him four picks later. Plenty of touches up for grabs in that Boise State passing offense, and Evans looks like a keeper.


4. Which player selected in Round 12 or later do you think has the best chance of becoming a weekly CFF starter this year?


Crawford: Greg McRae. I know he has some players ahead of him in the backfield, but the reports all spring were spectacular, and I think he offers the best ability to make plays of their tailbacks. It may be a slow process to getting him touches, but by the end of the year, it wouldn't shock me if he was getting a large portion of the touches.

Hall: If Jalin Moore battles injuries again this year my pick of Marcus Williams Jr. in RD 20 could be great value. I’m also pretty intrigued to see how CJ Worton will be used in that FIU offense. I know Singleton looks to be the top WR right now but I still think Worton could make some noise. Outside of my team I really like the Cole McDonald pick from Hawaii in RD 14 by Bill. Maybe he won’t win that starter job and maybe their offense takes some time to really get going but if he picks up that run-and-shoot offense he could be a nice surprise this year.

Chevalier: If Trevion Armstrong gets TE designation from Fantrax, then he certainly has the talent and opportunity at Nevada to be an every week CFF starter.

Bainbridge: Thor was able to nab Western Kentucky QB Drew Eckels in the 15th round and I am still wondering how. Last year’s starter Mike White was routinely throwing for 300+ yards each and every week. Not saying Eckels is Mike White, but in that offense, he may be forced to throw the football 40+ times a game.

Laub: Last season, UCF posted an undefeated record, and QB McKenzie Milton passed for over 4,000 yards and 30 touchdowns. The Knights will throw the football a ton again, and WR Gabriel Davis steps into the starting lineup. At 6-foot-3 and 219 pounds, the sophomore should see a huge increase in snaps and targets.

Brandt: Darnell Saloman has the ability to step up heading into his junior campaign. If Blake Barnett can finally live up to the hype Saloman could become a weekly starter.

Marchese: Conner selecting Jarret Doege in the 17th round was great value. He had a strong finish to last season and has some nice weapons coming back to take on a relatively easy schedule.

Lindquist: Fresno State RB Jordan Mims, selected by John Laub in the 16th round. He tallied 765 yards from scrimmage with six touchdowns as a true freshman last season and could creep toward 1,000 total yards from scrimmage during the coming season. Two potential hurdles to a breakout campaign -- he's not a particularly explosive back (just 4.1 YPC) and Ronnie Rivers and Josh Hokit both figure to push him in August camp.

Allen: My 17th round pick, Bowling Green sophomore QB Jarret Doege, has a chance to be an every-week starter for my team.  He got on a roll the last four weeks of the season, scoring 13 combined passing and rushing touchdowns and should benefit from more experience as the Falcons signal-caller.

Francis: Western Michigan TE Giovanni Ricci. I love converted WRs that move to TE, especially when the offense lacks quality perimeter players. Getting a TE in the 19th that his coach says is “gonna eat” this year is a +EV proposition.

Huber: Thor scooped up Benny LeMay at 13.05, a pick ahead of me as I waited with a fork and knife in anticipation. LeMay broke out as a legitimate candidate for G5 RB1 consideration in 2017 after shredding the FIU defense for 178 yards and a receiving TD. He was concussed the very next game on October 7th against Marshall, missed Week 7, returned to a reduced workload to recover, and his production paid the price over his last five games. When healthy, he only scored four TD, doing the majority of his damage last season with yardage. A healthy 2018 season with continued growth in the passing game spell out LeMay as a legitimate candidate for a breakout.  

DiSalvo: I thought Thor got great value in the 19th Round, selecting Houston WR Keith Corbin.  He'll likely start in Kendal Briles' offense.

Lubitz: Jordan Mims- In what should be a really good offense in Jeff Tedford's second year back as Head Coach Mims has the potential to be a high level producer and most definitely a weekly CFF starter.

Nystrom: I really liked what Conner Allen did in the late rounds. Two picks specifically that I could see factoring heavily into his season are Deondre Douglas in Round 13 and Jarrett Doege in Round 17. Doege directs that Bowling Green offense that could light up scoreboards during MACtion this fall, and Douglas is a high-floor guy (over 12.0 fantasy points per game in each of the last two years) who is the undisputed No. 1 option in Troy’s Air Raid offense. Douglas feels like an unsexy veteran, but he could finally threaten 1,000 receiving yards if Troy finds a quarterback to replace Brandon Silvers.

5. Outside of your own team, which do you see as the most talented in the league post-draft?

Crawford: I really like what Joshua Chevalier did. D'Eriq King could be a star, and I think Teddy Veal could be one of the best wide receivers production-wise in the Group Of Five or Power Five. I also really like Darrell Henderson, and I think Adrian Killins was excellent value for him. Lots of good teams, but if I had to pick one, that'd be mine.

Hall: Again, this just feels so impossible because all these guys do such a great job and put together some good teams. But man, I like Jon Laub's team. He got both Toledo RBs (Jealous!), a QB in Round 3 in Tyree Jackson, and then followed up but taking 3 really good WRS. I don’t know if anyone had a better first 6 rounds.

Chevalier: I really like what Bill did with his draft. He did really well in drafting solid RB’s and WR’s while getting enough QB’s that at least one should have good production each week.

Bainbridge: Thought Mark was able to put together a really strong team. Trevon Brown and Shamari Brooks are high-end starters. J’Mar Smith, Octavius Evans and Terence Williams have a ton of potential this year. And he hit on some late-round gems in Antonio Gibson, Hussein Howe and B.J. Farrow. Nicely done.

Laub: I am envious of CFFFantasyNate’s roster this season. Drafting Navy QB Malcom Perry, who qualifies at RB, is an ingenious move. And Nate also acquired Ty Gangi, Zach Abey and Zac Thomas behind center. Nice job my friend.

Brandt: John Laub had a really nice start with Jonathan Ward and Shakif Seymour. Team that with Tyree Jackson and McLane Mannix, I really liked the starting foundation to his team.

Marchese: I tend to favor rosters that have explosive guys capable of putting up big numbers at multiple positions over a steady guy that you can count on from week to week in this BestBall format. I think Chris Crawford was able to do that with many of his early picks including Milton, Johnson, Jones, Guyton, and Ragas. Wyoming DST also had a propensity to score big last year and returns 8 starters. 

Lindquist: Huge fan of Wes Huber's roster. After setting himself up with Ohio QB Nathan Rourke at 1.6, he proceeded to move from smart pick to smart pick, rolling with Penny Hart and Nic Smith with his next two selections (both of whom I love). Beyond the top of his roster, he drafted smart depth, particularly at running back. James Gardner -- injury discounts are fun -- and Warren Wand are both rock solid, while Hawaii's Freddie Holly lacks experience but has opportunity in front of him with Diocemy Saint Juste no longer on roster.

Allen: I really like the depth and elite talent Mark Lindquist acquired for his team. His WR corps has one of the highest weekly upsides among all teams and he opted to select a tight end early, taking Utah State junior tight end Raymond Dax as the TE3 in the 8th round.

Francis: I generally liked what the group on the front side of the draft did. I’ll go with Mike Bainbridge. I am confident, when he finishes No. 2, that he will wear defeat with distinction and dignity.

Huber: Nathan Marchese drafted well throughout IMO, QB is stacked, he vacuumed up quality RBs early, and assembled an impressive group of receivers.

DiSalvo: I really like Greg Brandt's team, but I feel he made a mistake not drafting Memphis QB David Moore after picking Memphis QB Brady White in Round 6.  If Moore earns the starting gig, Greg is considerably weaker at QB than had he drafted both Memphis signal callers.  Good depth at running back and receiver, though.

Lubitz: Top to bottom with depth -- John Laub.

Nystrom: I side with Bainbridge here. He got things kicked things off with two mega-stud receivers, guaranteeing he’d have the league’s best WR corps heading into the season, got a nice value in QB Brent Stockstill in Round 3, cornered the market on all of Colorado State’s always-strong running game in Rounds 4-5, and seemed to methodically stick to best-player-available from there. His team is going to be tough to beat if his running backs come through.
