College Fantasy Football 2017 Quarterback Rankings

Lamar Jackson leads the way once again as he remains far and away the top fantasy quarterback in 2017

For those of you that play pro fantasy football, it's pretty standard knowledge that running backs are always the first to come off the board. Not so much with college fantasy. Dual-threat quarterbacks are far more prevalent in the college game, and are pure gold in CFF. That holds true once again in 2017 as the top three quarterbacks are all electric runners that will post double-digit rushing touchdowns in addition to their passing statistics.
