Season to be Bowling II

In this edition, we will continue to look at the different bowl games that has Fantasy Football implications either in the upcoming draft or down the line.

Dec. 21

There’s only one game this date, but it’s a good one. Miami Beach Bowl features Western Kentucky vs. USF. The quarterback for WKU, Brandon Doughty is a super senior. He is known to put up gaudy stats every week in the college level. Not just against his weak conference, but also against some of the more prominent teams. Still, Doughty might be nothing more than Brandon Weeden 2.0, but I don’t leave any stones unturned. Senior RB Leon Allen, whose season was cut short by knee injury, is another name to pay attention to even though he won’t play in this game. He’s not a special type of back but possesses good catching ability and power running ability. Replacing him is D’Andre Ferby, not draft eligible yet, but he took over the lead back role after Allen’s injury. RS Senior, Jared Dangerfield, is Doughty’s best wide receiver and worth paying attention to. On the other side of the field, devy owners will be highly interested in Sophomore Marlon Mack. Mack started the year up and down, but as the season progressed, Mack became a big house hold name. He currently reminds me of Latavius Murray the way he runs.

Famous Idaho Bowl: Not much I can speak to concerning the Zips vs. the Utah St. Aggies. The only name of note is senior WR from the Aggies, Hunter Sharp. Has productive years, but not much to write home about.

Boca Raton Bowl: The rich neighborhood, also translates to Rats mouth Bowl consists of Toledo v. Temple. Running back for the Rockets, Kareem Hunt is an NFL caliber RB. He’s not as much talked about because of lack of exposure, but Hunt is a tough runner and looks comfortable in small spaces between the tackles. Lots to be excited about. On the Temple side, Jahad Thomas is NFL eligible. He is a tough hard-nosed runner and sticks his foot strongly into the turf to make small cuts. Initially, I’m not too impressed by him as an NFL prospect but I also have limited exposure of his games. At least his stats looks good

Dec. 23

Poinsettia Bowl: Boise Smurfs v. Norther Illinois Doggies. Another devy prospect, Jeremy McNichols announced his presence this year after the departure of Jay Ajayi. This kid is special in the few games that I watched him. He can be much better than Ajayi, and I like Ajayi A LOT. Similarly, I’m excited to watch the growth of young QB Brett Rypien. He’s been asked to do a lot this year but inexperienced showed up a lot. Thomas Sperbeck managed to put up 1.3K yards after only getting 800 yards last year. This is worth monitoring. Kenny Golladay is the only name of worth for the Huskies.

GoDaddy Bowl features an interesting match up … and by interesting, I think I’m only focusing on Bowling Green as they take on Georgia Southern’s triple offense. Being such a run heavy team, it’s not surprising to see GaSouthern’s Matt Breida run for 1.5k yards. BGSU though carries 3 names that are notable: Matt Johnson (QB), Travis Greene (RB), and Roger Lewis (WR). All names will be of interest to me in the upcoming draft.
