Here are some key college fantasy football questions to ponder as the Sun Belt embarks on spring ball.


Arkansas State

Can the Red Wolves establish any sort of running game in 2011? Last year, their leading rusher Derek Lawson only compiled a measly 500 yards. Incoming true freshman Artez Brown could get a shot at early playing time. 


Florida Atlantic

With all of the skill position players around him graduating, can RB Alfred Morris shoulder more of the load in 2011? His production dipped in the last fall after a stellar 2009 campaign. 


Florida International

How will the carries be split between Darriet Perry and Darrian Mallary? Mallary came on strong at the end of the year with 118, 84, 83 and 104 yard rushing performances in his final four games. But the bigger, stronger Perry led the team with a whopping 16 rushing TDs. 



Can RB Aaron Spikes build upon a productive freshman campaign where he totaled 737 yards from scrimmage? The Ragin' Cajuns are in dire need of another offensive playmaker to go along with stud tight end Ladarius Green. 



Is Jyruss Edwards ready to fill the shoes of departing veteran running back Frank Goodin? As a freshman last fall, Edwards showed some signs of life late in the year.


Middle Tennessee

The only two notable offensive stars for the Blue Raiders, quarterback Dwight Dasher and running back Phillip Tanner, are moving on. Who will step up and fill their shoes? 


North Texas

What type of offense will new head coach Dan McCarney employ and how will it effect stud running back Lance Dunbar? McCarney spent 12 years as head coach at Iowa State. 



The good news is that budding star quarterback Corey Robinson returns for the Trojans.  The bad news is that his receiving corps and offensive line have been decimated by graduation.  

With DuJuan Harris out of the picture, can Shawn Southward take over as a true feature back? At 5'8 and 184 pounds, it's unlikely he can handle a huge workload. 


Western Kentucky

How much bubble wrap will the Hilltopper coaching staff have around star running back Bobby Rainey this spring? He was the entire offense in 2010 and will need to rest up if he plans to match his 340 carries from last fall.
