We are moving through the college bowl game season and here at Fantasy CPR, we are tracking potential NFL prospects in these games so that you can have the jump on your league mates in those deep dynasty leagues.

We are still early in the process of these bowl games and many of the top-tier prospects in this upcoming class have yet to take the field (if they're going to at all), but keeping track of the guys who fly under the radar is a key to a strong dynasty league roster.

We have you covered here. If you have missed any of the coverage of these prospects so far, you can track previous bowl games here and here.

On Saturday, just two days before Christmas, college football fans will be treated to a 7-game slate of action. Here are some skill players that you should be watching in these games.

434. . . 2159. 7-5. ABC/ESPN. Saturday, Dec. 23. Birmingham Bowl. 11-2

Birmingham Bowl

This is going to be an interesting game to kick things off on Saturday. It was an up-and-down season for Duke and this is not the position the team envision itself closing in after such a hot start to the year.

Riley Leonard is a future NFL quarterback, but he has already announced his transfer to Notre Dame for next season. Duke also has a potential first-round pick in Graham Barton on the offensive line. But the guy I'm watching in this game for dynasty purposes is a running back on the other team.

Kimani Vidal, RB, Troy: Vidal is going to get the "undersized" label at 5-foot-8, but that takes nothing away from the stellar career he has had for the Trojans. He is the school's all-time leading rusher with 3,931 yards and he broke the single-season mark this year with 1,582 yards, breaking the previous mark by nearly 250 yards. He also has five 200-yard rushing games in his career and can help as a receiver out of the backfield as he has 91 career receptions.

Plenty of running backs get written off immediately for being "too small". Don't make that mistake with this guy. He could pace Troy to a win in this game.
