In the 8 years of the BCS Championship game a SEC team brought home the title in the first 7 and actually had 9 teams play in the 8 BCS Championship games (2011 Alabama played LSU, both SEC teams). There was little doubt that the best conference in College Football was the Southeastern Conference. Last year someone new broke through. Florida St brought home the Crystal Ball for the ACC. There are also talks of the growing strength of the Pac-12. This year we start the new College 4-Team Playoff to decide a National Champion. Because of that, the strength of the conferences could make all the difference in the final decision on the 4 teams that will be selected to the playoff. Right now the Top 4 teams are representing 4 different conferences. So has the SEC given up the top of the College Football Mountain? Here are my Division 1-A Conference Rankings.

Over the past couple years it has been a freshman stealing the spotlight for the rest of the College Football World and taking home the Heisman Trophy. In 2012, Johnny Manzeil made a splash and a name for himself taking the top individual award in College Football. Then last year Jameis Winston lead Florida St to a National titla and the Heisman. This year, I don’t expect a third straight Heisman. This year, even though I feel it is pretty safe that a Freshamn won’t win a third straight Heisman, I am not sure I can give you the winner. I do believe that there is about 5 players that are your front runners. Lets take a look.

It is time to kick off the football season! A time of the year when so many of us celebrate as much Christmas morning! Whether your game is college or NFL it doesn’t matter because they both get underway for real in the next couple weeks. Because of that it is time for the Freeplays.com Handicappers Football Predictions. 9 of our handicappers have made their predictions for the NFL and BCS. They are Razor Sharp Sports (RS), Jim Feist (JF), #1 Sports (#1), Vegas Steam Line (VS), Arthur Ralph (AR), Easy Money (EM), Teya Sports (TS), Hawkeye Sports (HS) and a brand new handicapper to the Freeplays family, Kevin Todd (KT).

As we get closer to kickoff of the regular season and of course your fantasy draft, it is time to talk about picking your fantasy football quarterback. I truly believe that having the right quarterback on your team makes all the difference. I am not saying that you should take your first round pick and take your star QB. What I am saying is taking the right QB at the right time is important. So with that being said, lets take a look at my top QBs, some shocker picks and guys you want to stay away from.

When it comes to fantasy football the postition of Wide Receiver can be very tricky. Do you go after one of the big name stars or do you hold off until later and build a solid depth of ball catchers? There are a couple top notch players that make a difference on a weekly basis, there are others that are consistent scorers that score 5-10 points a week and then there are players that will have zero one week and 20 the next. How you fill your receiving stables will often depend on your draft position and how others draft. So if you get the chance who are the Stars you should take, who are the receivers that will surprise you this year and who should you stay away from this year. Lets take a look.

When it comes to Fantasy Football the key in winning has always been Running Backs. About 5 years ago you could have a a 12-team league go thru a whole first round without anything except Running Backs being taken. Over the past few years things have changed dramatically. Quarterbacks have put up some incredible numbers and with that Wide Recievers stock has risen directly and even a few top Tight Ends come into play early in the drafts. Besides that, the way teams are using a 2 running back system has also cut numbers from individual backs. Still with that being said, some of the Top Running Backs in the league can be even more valuable because of the difference between the Top RBs and the good backs. So who are the guys you still want to target, who are some of the up & comers and who should you stay away from. Lets take a look.

When it comes to Fantasy Football having the right Defense can be the difference between making the playoffs or not. The only problem is in most cases it is more about getting lucky in your draft and for that matter, starting the right one that you have on your roster. In most leagues when you draft a Defensive Team you also get their Special Teams, so that is figured into our rankings. Now there are a few teams that do top others on the list and you may want to target and others that you may stay away from. There is also a different strategy that you may want to take a look at depending on your rules and cost structure. We will take a look at all of that.

Over the past few years the Tight End has morphed from a big blocking safety valve for a offense into one of the most dangerous weapons on the field. Players like Gronk, Tony Gonzalez, Jimmy Graham and Antonio Gates have changed the whole complexion of the position and a teams offensive attack. Now almost every team has added this type of weapon, so who are the ones you should target, who may be a real steal late and who should you stay away from this year?

Over the past month or so I have had people ask me questions about the upcoming football season and fantasy football. My answer is usually, I haven’t even looked into it yet. I wait until the Fourth of July or the Baseball All-Star Game before I start concentration on the upcoming football season. Well we have passed the 4th and the All-Star Game is next week so I guess it is time to start taking a look. Each week I will break down the Fantasy Football postions, giving you my Top Players at the position, the Surprise Players to watch and some possible Players that will drop off. We will look at Quarter Backs, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, Tight Ends, Defenses and Kickers. Since we haven’t gotten to the All-Star Break yet, lets start slow with the Kickers.
