 Player: Washaun Ealey RB, Georgia Bulldogs 02/27/11, Time: 10:00 pm
 News: Georgia HC Mark Richt has reinstated RB Washaun Ealey after a three-week suspension. The reasons for the suspension are shrouded in mystery and even included a rumor that Ealey was transferring. He is, however, back on the team.

Ealey rushed for more than 800 yards and had 11 scores in 2010, so he's primed to be the Bulldog's prime ballcarrier in 2011. We'll see how much his suspension and the backgroudn behind them, affect his status moving forward. (

 Player: Sean Renfree QB, Duke Blue Devils 02/27/11, Time: 9:56 pm
 News: Duke's first scrimmage of the spring flashed a very good running game and that allowed returning QB Sean Renfree to do some damage. Renfree threw for only 129 yards, but tossed to scoring passes on play-action passes, then added a third on the ground.

Renfree, now with a year's experience under his belt as the starter, could be a very sneaky good quarterback option come the fall. He has some weapons around him and if the running game can truly deliver some help, that just makes his potential even higher. (

 Player: Seth Doege QB, Texas Tech Red Raiders 02/27/11, Time: 9:53 pm
 News: It looks like after one scrimmage this spring the changing of the quarterback guard is fully underway at Texas Tech. Seth Doege looks like he's pulling away after hitting on 17-of-26 passes for 246 yards and three scores in the opening scrimmage.

Doege seems to be Tommy Tuberville's handpicked guy heading into his second season as HC, though things could change. Still, Doege's performance in the first scrimmage means he's the front-runner and probably opened some space. Tuberville seems determined to expand the running game, but Doege should still be a useful fantasy option in 2011 if he holds onto the job. (

 Player: Quarterback QB, Texas Longhorns 02/27/11, Time: 9:46 pm
 News: It appears that the rummors of the Texas quarterback job being open to competition were true. Despite the presence of last year's starter, Garrett Gilbert, three other contenders, Conner Wood, Case McCoy, and frosh David Ash joined Gilbert with first-team reps as spring practice got going this week.

No doubt the competition will narrow down in the coming practices, but it's obvious that in the aftermath of the 5-7 campaign of 2010, the quarterback position is getting a long look only a year after Gilbert appeared to be the obvious successor. Look for Colt McCoy's little brother to offer the biggest challenge moving forward. (

 Player: Arby Fields RB, Northwestern Wildcats 02/24/11, Time: 5:02 pm
 News: Northwestern RB Arby Fields has apparently left the program with the intention of finding a new place to play. Word is that he's enrolled at a California JUCO while weighing his options.

Fields seemed on the cusp of being "the guy" at Northwestern, but never got over the hump, accumulating 177 yards and 1 score on the ground in 2010. Word is he's looking at Arizona State, UCLA and a few other schools. (

 Player: Steven Threet QB, Arizona State Sun Devils 02/24/11, Time: 4:57 pm
 News: Due to lingering affects of numerous concussions, it looks like Arizona State QB Steven Threet will not be playing in 2011. That's the word from the ASU camp as it appears the physical toll of hits to the head have put a hold on his football career.

With Threet apparently no threat, look at Brock Osweiler as the heir-apparent to the job heading into the spring. At this point, there are no other challengers. (

 Player: Shawne Alston RB, West Virginia Mountaineers 02/21/11, Time: 7:11 pm
 News: West Virginia RB Shawne Alston is workint through some knee issues but should be good to go for spring practice.

Alston, who figures to get plenty of opportunities to be a key figure in the running game, needs a good spring to get him moving forward for the fall. (

 Player: Aaron Murray QB, Georgia Bulldogs 02/21/11, Time: 7:09 pm
 News: Georgia QB Aaron Murray has been spotted on campus using crutches, his foot in a boot. Word is that he suffered a severely sprained ankle sometime this weekend and that there is fear it's a break.

Murray's health is imperative as he figures to be the keystone for the Bulldogs offensive attack this fall. We'll have to wait and see what the next tests reveal. (

 Player: Trent Streelman QB, Army Black Knights 02/17/11, Time: 3:59 pm
 News: Army QB Trent Streelman will not participate this spring as he recovers from shoulder surgery.

Streelman's absence will hurt in terms of timing and reps in the option offense, but he's certainly got the experience factor working for him, so the penalty shouldn't be too severe. (

 Player: Tom Savage QB, Arizona Wildcats 02/17/11, Time: 3:56 pm
 News: It appears that former Rutgers starting QB Tom Savage has committed to playing for Arizona. Savage visited the program this week and seems to have made his decision that he'll be a Wildcat.

Savage will sit for the 2011 season as a transfer, but won't have an easy path to the starting job. Matt Scott, who has proven he can run this offense, will be back looking to take the job after Nick Foles leaves. Should be interesting in 2012. (

 Player: James Montgomery RB, Washington State Cougars 02/15/11, Time: 4:16 pm
 News: Washington State RB James Montgomery was cited for midemeanor pot possession over the weekend. Montgomery is looking for a sixth year of eligibility from the NCAA after a career riddled with injuries at first California and then WSU.

At this point, you can't like his chances of a sixth year. He has very little to no fantasy value given his injury history, but the likely scenario now is that he's done at WSU. (

 Player: Nate Montana QB, Montana Grizzlies 02/15/11, Time: 4:14 pm
 News: Notre Dame QB Nate Montana, son of Joe Montana, is apparently done with the Irish and will enroll at the University of Montana. Because the Grizzlies are an FBS program, Montana will be eligible to play this season.

It had begun to look more and more like the depth chart at Notre Dame wasn't going to be favorable to Montana. And, with his father reportedly visiting UM last week to get the lay of the land, this one has been developing for a while. (

 Player: Deantre Lewis RB, Arizona State Sun Devils 02/14/11, Time: 6:17 pm
 News: Arizona State RB Deantre Lewis is listed in stable condition after suffering a gunshot wound at his California home.

Lewis had a very exciting freshman campaign for the Sun Devils, offering hopes that he would win the job and be a fantasy factor. At this point, the hope is he recovers and gets healthy. (

 Player: LaMichael James RB, Oregon Ducks 02/14/11, Time: 6:15 pm
 News: Oregon RB LaMichael James is doing speed work with the Duck track team this winter and showed his burst by placing second in the 60 meter dash over the weekend at an indoor meet in Washington.

James clocked a 6.88 second race for the runnerup spot. Fellow RB Kenjon Barner also ran the 60, but did not make the finals. Obviously, the Ducks have some backs who can run. Expect another stellar year from James and moments of fantasy brilliance from backup Barner. (

 Player: Markus Wheaton WR, Oregon State Beavers 02/14/11, Time: 6:12 pm
 News: Oregon State WR Markus Wheaton is working on his speed this winter, running some track for the Beavers -- which, incidentally, doesn't have an official men's track team.

Wheaton was 7th in the 60 meter dash at the Husky Classic this weekend, timing a 6.96 second run. With James Rodgers' recovery still under a cloud, Wheaton could be the Beavs go-to receiver this fall. Obviously, he's fast and working on getting faster. (

 Player: DJ Banks WR, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs 02/11/11, Time: 5:56 pm
 News: Tulane WR D.J. Banks has left the team and is headed for Louisiana Tech. Banks was the team's second leading receiver (419 yards, 3 TDs) a year ago.

Banks averaged less than 10 yards a catch, so the Green Waves aren't losing a big-play type of guy. He will have to sit out 2011 due to his transfer. (

 Player: Steven Threet QB, Arizona State Sun Devils 02/11/11, Time: 5:52 pm
 News: Arizona State QB Steven Threet's recovery from concussions last season are slow and could threaten his participation in spring practice. According to HC Dennis Erickson, Threet's availability for spring ball is still very much in question.

If Threet can't go, look for Brock Osweiler to get all the reps and likely wrest the starting job away from Threet heading into the 2011 season. Spring practice begins March 22 for the Sun Devils. (

 Player: Tate Forcier QB, Michigan Wolverines 02/10/11, Time: 5:44 am
 News: Former Michigan QB Tate Forcier has made a decision as to his new transfer destination -- Miami. Forcier said the Hurricanes offer the best opportunity for qui

Forcier will not be eligible until 2012 due to transfer rules. (

 Player: Tate Forcier QB, Michigan Wolverines 02/09/11, Time: 12:46 am
 News: Former Michigan QB Tate Forcier has made a decision as to his new transfer destination -- Miami. Forcier said the Hurricanes offer the best opportunity for quick playing time moving forward.

Forcier will not be eligible until 2012 due to transfer rules. (

 Player: Washaun Ealey RB, Georgia Bulldogs 02/08/11, Time: 8:15 pm
 News: Georgia RB Washau

Ealey's suspension raises an interesting scenario given that Georgia signed the nation's top running back prospect last week in Isaiah Crowell. Crowell could get some early run in the Bulldog offense in 2011. (

 Player: Washaun Ealey RB, Georgia Bulldogs 02/08/11, Time: 4:13 pm
 News: Georgia RB Washaun Ealey, the team's top rusher in 2010, has been suspended from all team activities, including the facilities. According to a report out of the Georgia camp, Ealey missed an early morning punishment run last week and has had some other issues.

Ealey's suspension raises an interesting scenario given that Georgia signed the nation's top running back prospect last week in Isaiah Crowell. Crowell could get some early run in the Bulldog offense in 2011. (

 Player: Quarterback QB, North Carolina State Wolfpack 02/07/11, Time: 9:00 pm
 News: It appears the North Carolina State coach Tom O'Brien sees the end of the Russell Wilson era at quarterback -- even if Wilson has given no such signal. O'Brien said last week that the team has to move forward with Mike Glennon because Wilson will play baseball.

Wilson, who has another year of football eligibility, has given no indication what his future entails, but it seems certain the O'Brien feels Wilson, a high draft choice in baseball, will not be back. Look for Glennon to get a lot of action this spring. (

 Player: Tate Forcier QB, Michigan Wolverines 02/07/11, Time: 8:34 pm
 News: Former Michigan QB Tate Forcier is looking for a new school and reports suggest that Kansas State has emerged as a possible player in the game. Forcier is said to be prepared to make a visit to Manhattan, Kan. next week.

The Wildcats are not the only team that Forcier is looking at, but have emerged as a new name the last day or so. (

 Player: Running back RB, Nevada Wolf Pack 02/07/11, Time: 8:32 pm
 News: Something to keep an eye on moving forward, Nevada coach Chris Ault and his RB coach Jimmy Mastro are committed to finding one go-to running back to replace Vai Taua. Finding one back to be the guy is the goal this spring they said.

With that, look to Mike Ball and Lampford Mark as the two most likely candidates to vie for the job in the spring. Should one emerge, they will likely be in line for a lot of work given that Taua and QB Kaepernick are now gone. (

 Player: Matt Scott QB, Arizona Wildcats 02/04/11, Time: 4:53 pm
 News: Arizona HC Bob Stoops has two goals for the coming year, keep starting QB Nick Foles healthy and be able to redshirt heir-apparent Matt Scott. Stoops said he is hopeful he can put Scott on the shelf for a year, so protecting Foles was vital.

A good move as long as Foles stays upright. Scott demonstrated an ability to move this offense, so letting Foles take over while Scott saves a year of eligibility looks like a good idea. (

 Player: James Rodgers WR, Oregon State Beavers 02/04/11, Time: 4:49 pm
 News: With WR James Rodgers needing a second procedure on his knee, the worry at Oregon State is that the team's top returning playmaker may not be ready for the fall. Rodgers, who was granted a medical hardship to come back this season, is being counted on to fill the void left by his brother Quizz's departure.

This is tough news if it turns out the injured knee will keep him out early in the fall. At this point, it seems the recovery process is still just beginning. The Beaver offense is in flux and could be very questionable if James can't get on the field at close to 100 percent. (

 Player: Kevin Prince QB, UCLA Bruins 02/04/11, Time: 4:46 pm
 News: According to UCLA HC Rick Neuheisel, QB Kevin Prince will likely miss spring practice as he recovers from knee surgery. Neuheisel said he said his apparent starter was "questionable" to participate.

Neuheisel and Prince simply cannot catch a break. Prince has shown flashes of being the quarterback this team needs, but can't stay healthy. Look for him healthy and ready to go this fall, however. If so, he should be the starter. (

 Player: John Brantley QB, Florida Gators 02/04/11, Time: 4:43 pm
 News: Looks like we're going to have John Brantly 2.0. With coach Will Muschamps revelation that Jordan Reed will head to tight end and Trey Burton will be moved, Brantley heads into spring as the defacto starter.

Brantley was the guy a year ago, but couldn't hold the job. However, with a new pro style offense that fits his skill set as a big pro-style quarterback, we like the odds of him being more successful this time around. (

 Player: Jordan Reed TE, Florida Gators 02/04/11, Time: 4:41 pm
 News: If new Florida HC Will Muschamps is serious about cleaning up the quarterback situation and said he's looking at a couple of changes, the most important being Jordan Reed being a full-time tight end.

Reed is that athletic TE the Gators love and this move should make fantasy players delighted as it puts a guy capable of week-to-week production at a slim position into the mix. Fellow QB Trey Burton looks to be headed to the defensive secondary or as fullback type. (

 Player: James Franklin QB, Missouri Tigers 02/04/11, Time: 4:37 pm
 News: The Missouri coaching staff has indicated that James Franklin will open as the No. 1 quarterback when spring practice begins. The job isn't his, however, as Tyler Gabbert and Ashton Glaser will also get some first team run.

Let the battle to replace Blaine Gabbert begin. All three quarterbacks will get the chance to win the job, so Franklin's hold on the top spot is somewhat tenuous. (

 Player: Denard Robinson QB, Michigan Wolverines 02/04/11, Time: 4:32 pm
 News: The words coming out of the Michigan coaching staff have to worry people about QB Denard Robinson's future a bit. New OC Al Borges said he and his staff are "blowing up" big parts of the Wolverine offense and he figured that Robinson would rush for 700 to 800 yards less next year.

The assumption that Robinson, an iffy passer on good days, will transfer 700 rushing yards to the passing game seems a dangerous game to play. This situation demands close attention in the spring as worry about one of the game's most dynamic quarterbacks seems legitimate moving forward. (

 Player: Dan Persa QB, Northwestern Wildcats 01/25/11, Time: 2:44 pm
 News: While his torn Achilles is rehabbing ahead of schedule, Northwes

Persa's prognosis is good and should he make a full recovery, which is likely, he'll be one of the better quarterback options in the Big Ten in 2011. (

 Player: Kenny Stills WR, Oklahoma Sooners 01/24/11, Time: 10:59 pm
 News: Oklahoma WR Kenny Stills was one of two freshmen starters arrested recently, joining DB Tony Jefferson in run-ins with police. Stills was arrested for DUI and held overnight.

Well, kids will do stupid things and these young men are obviously finding out that fact. Expect some punishment, but both should be big parts of the Oklahoma gameplan in 2011. Still, particularly, showed flashes of big-time playmaking ability. (

 Player: Keith Smith WR, Purdue Boilermakers 01/24/11, Time: 10:54 pm
 News: Purdue WR Keith Smith continues to wait on the NCAA and the potential for a sixth season of eligibility. A 1,000-yard receiver in 2009, Smith missed most of last season after tearing and ACL and MCL in his knee early on.

If Smith can come back and team with another injury-sufferer, quarterback Robert Marve, the Boilermakers could have a pretty solid passing attack to build on. As it is -- Smith continues to await word from the NCAA. (

 Player: Dan Persa QB, Northwestern Wildcats 01/24/11, Time: 10:51 pm
 News: While his torn Achilles is rehabbing ahead of schedule, Northwestern QB Dan Persa is iffy at best for work this spring.

Persa's prognosis is good and should he make a full recovery, which is likely, he'll be one of the better quarterback options in the Big Ten in 2011. (

 Player: Samson Szakacsy QB, Arizona State Sun Devils 01/19/11, Time: 7:14 pm
 News: Arizona State QB Samson Szakacsy has left the Sun Devil football program. No word yet on whether he will transfer in hopes of finding other playing opportunities or is simply walking away from the game.

With Steven Threet and Brock Osweiler entrenched as the top two quarterbacks, it was hard to find any plausible scenario outside of injury, that would allow Samson playing time. (

 Player: Case Keenum QB, Houston Cougars 01/19/11, Time: 7:12 pm
 News: Houston QB Case Keenum will not do much during spring practice as coach Kevin Sumlin prefers he rest, rehab and be ready for fall camp.

Keenum's past performance leads one to believe he won't need much fine-tuning once he gets back under center. It's hard to predict how valuable he'll be from a fantasy standpoint, but the guess here is he'll still be a top-tier fantasy quarterback option. (

 Player: Cameron Newton QB, Auburn Tigers 01/14/11, Time: 2:16 pm
 News: Auburn QB Cam Newton, this year's Heisman Trophy winner, has decided to make himself available for the NFL Draft.

A big fantasy loss for 2011, but hardly unexpected considering his stock probably will never be higher and the off-the-field issues surrounding his father. (

 Player: Denard Robinson QB, Michigan Wolverines 01/14/11, Time: 2:14 pm
 News: Michigan QB Denard Robinson has informed new coach Brady Hoke that he'll return to the Wolverines -- and play quarterback -- in 2011.

The return of Robinson is only part of the puzzle. How will Robinson be allowed to play quarterback under Hoke. Having Robinson back is a plus for fantasy owners, but be cautious about what type of offense this team will run with Robinson at its controls. (

 Player: Stevan Ridley RB, LSU Tigers 01/13/11, Time: 4:32 pm
 News: Word out of the LSU camp is that RB Stevan Ridley will declare for the NFL Draft soon. There's been speculation about Ridley's intentions, but it appears the rumors are growing stronger and all pointint to an early exit for Ridley.

The 6-foot, 225-pounder is an intriguing blend of speed and power, using those talents to enjoy a breakout season in 2010. (

 Player: Randall Cobb WR, Kentucky Wildcats 01/13/11, Time: 4:29 pm
 News: Kentucky WR/QB Randall Cobb said today he will make himself available for the 2011 NFL Draft. Cobb led Kentucky in receiving and rushing yardage while scoring 12 times in 2010. He also tossed three scoring passes and returned a punt for a score.

As hard as it is to admit, the loss of Cobb for Kentucky is a big blow. His yardage totals weren't out of sight, but his value to the overall offense was huge. It will be interesting to see where he projects in the NFL Draft. (

 Player: Brandon Weedon QB, Oklahoma State Cowboys 01/12/11, Time: 4:19 pm
 News: Oklahoma State QB Brandon Weedon will stay at OSU for the 2011 season, passing up a chance to enter the NFL Draft. Weedon had a huge 2010 with a school record 4,277 yards and 34 touchdown passes.

Despite the monster 2010 effort, probably a good decision to come back with another similar effort in 2011. And aiding the cause will be the nation's top receiver in Justin Blackmon, who decided to return as well. Weedon's numbers, and the return of his top target, make him a first round fantasy quarterback in 2011. (

 Player: Justin Blackmon WR, Oklahoma State Cowboys 01/12/11, Time: 4:16 pm
 News: Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon said today that he will return to the Cowboys for the 2011 season. Blackmon had a monster campaign in 2010 with better than 1,700 yards and 20 scores, leading some to believe he might get to the NFL while the "getting was good."

It's reasonable to ask if Blackmon can have the same type of year in 2011, but with the announcement that QB Brandon Weedon is also returning, you have to like his chances at a second huge season. Even if it falls somewhat short of 2010, it will still be huge. (

 Player: Michael Floyd WR, Notre Dame Fighting Irish 01/12/11, Time: 4:12 pm
 News: Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd has committed to returning to the Irish for his senior season, according to a release from the school. Floyd said it was a hard decision, but his goal is to show that he's the best receiver in college football in 2011.

Floyd's return is somewhat unexpected, but must have coach Brian Kelly smiling ear-to-ear. With his return as a clear go-to receiver for the Irish's spread passing attack, his fantasy value is definitely in the first-round range in 2011. (

 Player: Dion Lewis RB, Pittsburgh Panthers 01/11/11, Time: 5:23 pm
 News: Pittsburgh RB Dion Lewis will enter the NFL Draft, according to several reports. Lewis joins star receiver Jonathan Baldwin in leaving the Pittsburgh program.

Beset by injuries and some ineffectiveness, Lewis lost carries to Ray Graham this season, but still demonstrated, when healthy, the talent to make things happen on the field. With Lewis gone, Graham's fantasy value jumps quite a bit for 2011. (

 Player: Austyn Carta-Samuels QB, Wyoming Cowboys 01/11/11, Time: 5:20 pm
 News: In a huge blow to Wyoming's offense, QB Austyn Carta-Samuels said he will transfer. Though somewhat inconsistent, Carta-Samuels showed enough flashes of promise to make people feel good about the Cowboys long-term offensive future.

No reason was given for Carta-Samuels departure, nor rumors to ponder. It's a big loss for this offense, an offense that was starting, albeit slowly, to come around some. (

 Player: Jacquizz Rodgers RB, Oregon State Beavers 01/11/11, Time: 1:54 pm
 News: Oregon State RB Jacquizz Rodgers will not return to the Beavers for his senior campaign. Just hours before Monday's national title game, Rodgers broke the news that he would make himself available for the NFL Draft.

A huge blow for the Beavers and fantasy owners as it was assumed he would stay on to finish his career with older brother James. Rodgers did express some frustrations about the offense last year as the Beavs struggled, so that made you wonder. Suddenly, the formerly potent Beaver offense has some question marks in 2011. (

 Player: John Clay RB, Wisconsin Badgers 01/10/11, Time: 3:12 pm
 News: The battering ram that is Wisconsin RB John Clay will move on to the NFL next season. Clay decided to declare for the NFL draft and not come back for his senior season.

Hard to say how well Clay's size and power will be greeted in the NFL. However, with him gone, the running game will split carries between Montee Ball and speedster James White in 2011. (

 Player: Jamie Harper RB, Clemson Tigers 01/10/11, Time: 3:10 pm
 News: Clemson RB Jamie Harper will not return for his senior season. Instead, he will test his fortunes in the 2011 NFL Draft.

Harper's defection will leave the running game in the hands of Andre Ellington, which lifts him up a couple notches in terms of fantasy value. (

 Player: Ryan Williams RB, Virginia Tech Hokies 01/10/11, Time: 3:08 pm
 News: Virginia Tech RB Ryan Williams will join fellow Hokie back Darren Evans in making himself available for the 2011 NFL Draft. Williams made the announcement a few days after Evans said he was leaving.

The logjam that was the Hokie backfield suddenly has a lot of room and that means David Wilson will go into 2011 as "the man," which means his fantasy value has risen significantly. (
