Pitt's Ray Graham Shows Up In Athlon's Fantasy Football Rankings

I've never been a huge fan of Fantasy College Football - just way too many players to keep track of. That said, Athlon takes it seriously ... at least seriously enough to take a stab at ranking players and to hold a mock draft.

Ray Graham was the sole Pitt player in both.

In Athlon's list of Top 200 fantasy players, Graham ranked No. 73. Had it not been for Graham's injury last year, there's no question he would have been higher. But there are understandably questions about his health - especially when head coach Paul Chryst seems so non-committal.

For what it's worth, Graham did go higher than that in their mock draft of panelists - he was taken 55th overall.

Graham was the only Pitt player in the top 200 or taken in the mock draft. At first I was a bit surprised, but then thought about - who else should be ranked that high? You could cite Chryst's strong running attacks and say Isaac Bennett or Rushel Shell will have a big season, but it's too early to tell who will get the bulk of the carries right now. And you could go with Devin Street or Hubie Graham, but given the passing struggles last season, hard to say their slam dunks for great seasons.
