    [​IMG]I love fantasy football. For the NFL, that is. It's a little depressing at how bad my friends from high school and I are at waiting to renew our league annually, officially christening our new league page for the coming year.

    Last year, we made it to June.

    I don't play college fantasy football. Never have. But these guys do. And they run CollegeFantasyFootballInsider.com, apparently for people like me. They recently released their fantasy rankings, and it's definitely an interesting take on the conference. Remember, these aren't based on skill necessarily, but more of a forecast of production.

    In case you didn't know, generally a point is given for every 10 yards receiving or rushing and six for touchdowns. In some leagues, quarterbacks receive only four points for touchdowns. In some leagues, receivers earn a point or a fraction of a point for each reception as well.

    Here's how they rank the Big 12's offensive talent:

    Quarterbacks (overall position ranking):

    3. Jerrod Johnson, Texas A&M

    7. Robert Griffin III, Baylor

    8. Blaine Gabbert, Missouri

    11. Brandon Weeden, Oklahoma State

    20. Steven Sheffield, Texas Tech

    21. Taylor Potts, Texas Tech

    24. Landry Jones, Oklahoma

    25. Garrett Gilbert, Texas

    37. Austen Arnaud, Iowa State

    50. Tyler Hansen, Colorado

    Running backs:

    6. Daniel Thomas, Kansas State

    8. Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State

    18. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma

    19. Baron Batch, Texas Tech

    25. Derrick Washington, Missouri

    27. Alexander Robinson, Iowa State

    31. Toben Opurum, Kansas

    37. Rodney Stewart, Colorado

    Wide receivers:

    5. Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma

    6. Jeff Fuller, Texas A&M
