Fantasy CFB expert mock draft

Friday, June 16, 2017


 

 

On Monday, June 12, I was fortunate enough to take part in John Laub's 4th annual Summa Cum Laude College Fantasy Football Mock Draft. I was even more fortunate to draw the No. 1 pick, which I used on reigning Heisman trophy winner Lamar Jackson.

 

My final roster is listed beneath the draft results.

 

Next month, I'll publish my complete 2017 college fantasy football rankings, which will be updated throughout the end of the summer. In the meantime, I'm always happy to answer fantasy (or general college football) questions on Twitter (@thorku).
