The 2010 college fantasy season is over…
After that very serious moment of silence and a single tear, I will put the college fantasy season behind me with one office championship (BCS-only) and one runner-up finish (120-league). So one final longing glance back at the stars of the college fantasy season is in order. Here were the top performers by position of the 2010 college fantasy season:
Quarterback was an interesting position this season. First of all, the No. 1 overall pick was lost for the season before it really even got started. Dwight Dasher’s gambling issues caused major first-round heartburn. Colin Kaepernick lived-up to the hype and finished as the No. 3 overall player in the draft. A new system at East Carolina, packaged with a Boston College transfer, delivered a sterling season for Dominique Davis owners. It was a blast to see Robert Griffin stay healthy, and he rewarded gambling owners with a top-10 season in his return to the gridiron.
But after it was all said and done, it was two new dual-threat starters at two college football powers that topped the charts. Cam Newton’s numbers, and clutch play, speaks for itself as he finished as the top player in the nation. Shoelace Robinson became the first player in NCAA history to post a 1,500-1,500 season (or 2,000-1,500 for that matter) and could have finished at No. 1 if not for knee-head-finger injuries keeping him out large chunks of multiple games.
