Fantasy Football Daily Haze: No NFL in 2011? Play College Fantasy Football
Last week I pointed out the fact that there may not be fantasy football to play this fall if the NFL lockout continues. If that happens, what will fantasy owners do with all the extra free time?
Perhaps they should go back to school.
While there could be no NFL football to watch on Sundays and, subsequently, no fantasy NFL, fantasy owners could turn to the “other” football that will be played this fall: college football.
The college fantasy game does exist (a quick Google search pulled up the CBS college fantasy football site) but is not nearly as mainstream as NFL fantasy football. In fact, I am sure I have not met a single person who plays fantasy college football.
But an NFL lockout could be a springboard for the fantasy college game, which begs the question: If there is no NFL this fall, will you play college fantasy football?

Here are today’s great reads:
- Take your mind off the NFL lockout by checking out some of these fantasy football links. All fantasy owners can do for the time being is remain optimistic that there will be football played on Sundays this fall, and I am not referring to the Pac-10. [Fantasy Football Librarian]
- 2011 could be a huge drop-off year for Michael Turner. While he may not have the overall wear and tear of most running backs his age, the last few workhorse years in Atlanta figure to take a toll on his body. And if there is no football in 2011? Turner would be 30 years old in 2012. [The Big Lead]
- Arizona did not address the quarterback position on draft day, when it could have nabbed any quarterback not named Cam Newton with the No. 5 overall pick. Leads you to believe the Cardinals plan on filling the position in free agency (Marc Bulger) or via trade. Kevin Kolb to Arizona talk seems to be heating up. [ProFootballTalk]
- For those who believe in fantasy momentum...the strongest finishing running backs in 2010. Arian Foster, Jamaal Charles and Michael Turner top the list. [Fantasy Football Xtreme]
