Unlike pro fantasy football, where running backs are usually the first to come off of the board, college fantasy is still about the quarterbacks. Particularly the dual-threat variety, which is far more prevalent in the college game. Those types of signal-callers are pure gold in college fantasy.
This holds true again in 2018 despite the loss of college fantasy legend Lamar Jackson. Consider that among the top 10 fantasy options (see below) at the position this season, seven of them are projected to have at least six rushing touchdowns. That doesn’t happen in the NFL.
You want to win your fantasy league? Snatch one (or more) of these dual-threat weapons up immediately and don't look back.
