There is one name, and one name only that sits atop everyone’s running back rankings this year in college fantasy football -- Florida Atlantic’s Devin Singletary. After closing the 2016 season on a high note, Singletary had a breakout year in 2017 with 1,920 rushing yards and a whopping 33 total touchdowns (32 rushing).

The running back group as a whole looks particularly strong this upcoming season, but Singletary will be the first one off the board in CFF drafts and is a cut above the rest.
