Big 12 Fantasy Football: Week 1

Jake Trotter guaranteed he had the best team in our Big 12 fantasy football league. For week 1, he was indeed correct.

Led by big performances from Bryce Petty, Jeremy Smith and Charles Sims, Jake won the opening weekend with 102 points.

Finishing in second was Brandon Chatmon with 85 points thanks to Lache Seastrunk's 22 points and strong showing from all three of his starting receivers. And yours truly finished last. Thanks a lot, John Hubert. (To be fair, our fantasy scores are the least of K-State’s concerns after this weekend.)

The top scorer in fantasy this week? Texas quarterback David Ash, who put up 44 points. He was sitting on Trotter’s fantasy bench behind Petty during that big-time performance.

But this is a marathon, not a sprint. Several big-name Big 12 players had modest fantasy showings in their first games of the new season. Plus, there’s always the option to change up our lineups.

We’re permitted two moves on the waiver wire each week, and we went freshman-heavy this time around. I picked up Texas Tech QB Baker Mayfield and the Baylor defense, Brandon added Oklahoma State receiver Marcell Ateman and Jake signed West Virginia receiver Daikiel Shorts.
