Fantasy guy says Locker best in Pac-10

Posted by Bob Condotta

With the college football preview season in full gear, there are any number of ratings of players out there, many of which we have already linked --- and some we'll surely link later.

The link today is a little different, a rating of players based on their fantasy value.

I've never played in a college fantasy league, but apparently they are becoming more popular as I'm seeing more and more college-football fantasy-related material out there such as this ranking of QBs, listing UW's Jake Locker at 16th in the nation and first in the Pac-10.

Locker's all-around skills obviously make him a high value in fantasy play as he's a threat to score either through the air or on the ground.

In fact, he accounted for the fourth-most points in a season of any UW quarterback last year with 162.

Here are the top five seasons:

1, Cody Pickett, 2002, 186 points (168 passing, 18 rushing)
2, Mark Brunell, 1990, 178 (96 passing, 78 rushing --- includes four points on two-point plays)
3, Billy Joe Hobert, 1991, 174 (144 passing, 30 rushing)
4, Jake Locker, 2007, 162 (84 passing, 78 rushing)
5, Brock Huard, 1997, 158 (150 passing, six rushing --- includes two points on a two-point play)

The leader for a non-quarterback is Corey Dillon in 1996 with 144 points, 120 rushing and 24 passing, a total that is sixth among all-players (the highest for a kicker is Chuck Nelson's 112 in 1982).

AND SPEAKING OF PICKETT. ... he's now with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, a league that is playing pre-season games in preparation for the beginning of the season later this month. Pickett is battling for a backup job and according to this story, lost a fumble, but also headed a drive that led to a field goal by Mike Vanderjagt.
