With a new name in the No. 1 spot, I thought it would be fun
Fantasy football leagues are open – yes, already – with kickoff just about two months away.

Several former Big Ten basketball players are set to take place in the second annual “The Basketball Tournament,” which kicks off today with the South and West Regional rounds. A total of 97 teams will play in the tournament, with the winning team taking home a $1,000,000 grand prize. What a fun event, right? That got me wondering what a team for every Big Ten school would look like? In order to do this, I chose a group of five players from every Big Ten school who I think would make the best 5-on-5 team today. The conditions are that
Late last month, I posted an article on the top 5 offensive triplets in the Big Ten. The list consisted of the top QB-RB-WR trios in the conference, and was highlighted by Ohio State.

Know your team’s left tackle. Just like the quarterback, he’s a glamour boy. Really. Jake Long, Orlando Pace and Eric Fisher are left tackles who recently were picked No. 1 in the NFL draft.
