All the hustle and bustle in college football these days, with the transfer portal, coaching changes, injuries, and realignment, makes it easy to forget about guys who once carried significant value in the college fantasy football realm. Here are some of the forgotten souls who should be remembered.

KY THOMAS, RB- KENT STATE

A soul that was lost due to a multi-transfer eligibility rule that no longer exists, Thomas, is back on the field again. It is easy to forget, after a transfer to KU (where he was stuck behind Devin Neal) and having to sit out a year at Kent State, that Thomas had FIVE 100+ yard games as a redshirt freshman in the Big10 for Minnesota. He averaged 14 PPG in relief of Mo Ibrahim that season. His 824 yards in nine games that were almost exclusively against Big10 opponents should not be forgotten. I don’t think his coach, Kenni Burns, who was his position coach at Minnesota, has forgotten.

DEVIN VOISIN, WR – SOUTH ALABAMA

Do you remember who lead South Alabama in receptions and yards in 2022? Jalen Wayne? Nope. Caullin Lacy? Nope. Devin Voisin? Yep. How soon we forget one of the Jaguars’ primary play-makers not long after his 13 target, 11-153-1 bowl game performance in 2022. But that’s what happens when you have an ACL tear in week two of 2023 while Lacy and Pritchett go on to consume over 200 combined targets in Voisin’s absence.

Now, the injury concern is warranted, but not all ACL tears are created equally. Voisin’s happened on September 9, leaving plenty of time to be ready by week one of 2024 should he not have any setbacks with rehab. This assumption of health was also mentioned by USA beat writer, Creg Stphenson, in his appearance on the G5 Hive Podcast (You should listen if you aren’t already).

SEYDOU TRAORE, TE/WR – MISSISSIPPI STATE

This forgotten soul was a top 10 CFF tight end in 2022 as just a second year player at Arkansas State. The raw, TE/WR hybrid was once thought of as an up-and-coming player after starting football late in high school while living in England. He seemingly fell off the face of the earth after a second transfer forced him to sit out all of 2023 like Ky Thomas. Traore is eligible to play again with Jeff Lebby now as his coach, who ironically was the coach of Brayden Willis, who finished one spot behind Traore in the 2022 TE CFF ranks.

JALON DANIELS, QB – KANSAS

QBs aren’t forgotten often, but Daniels is probably the closest thing to a forgotten soul in the CFF world. Had he followed through on the rumors last season that he was going to join Lincoln Riley at USC, then he probably wouldn’t be all that forgotten. Because of the back spasm concerns, players with significantly lower ceilings like Quinn Ewers, Carson Beck, Brady Cook, and Malachi Nelson are all going in front of him in drafts.

The range of outcomes is immense for Daniels, but his enormous ceiling was on full display in 2022 when he had three games over 45 fantasy points. Hell, Kansas was able to make Jason Bean, who was essentially a RB playing QB, into a viable CFF QB option.

JAHMAL EDRINE, WR – PURDUE

Edrine, like Voisin, has a projectable timeline to be healthy for fall camp given his ACL tear was in early August of 2023. The former FAU starter made waves with the Purdue staff prior to his injury as conveyed by the Boilermaker beat writers. Even after missing all of 2023, the buzz out of West Lafayette remains that Edrine is expected to be the Graham Harrell WR1. The void left behind by Deion Burks could lead to an important role for this forgotten soul should he return to full health.

DORIAN SINGER, WR – UTAH

It’s easy to see why Singer is a forgotten soul. He went from 66-1105-6 in 2022 with Arizona to a sad 24-289-3 for USC in 2023. You can’t say those of us on the CFF team at C2C didn’t warn you. But after being part of a bloated WR room in LA, Singer lands in a starving Utah WR room. Singer established himself as the top WR to be fed by a healthy Cam Rising after a strong spring. The ceiling is limited in that system, but he looks to be a strong bounce-back candidate.
