We’ve been hitting you with a lot of fantasy gym content lately, but it’s only because we want this to be your most successful year yet. Today we plan on tackling that part of your draft list that comes after you’ve identified all of your well-known favorites. We are highlighting the gymnasts to fill out your draft that go beyond the big four conferences: Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and the SEC. As mentioned in our feature outlining the gymnasts that the top fantasy gym teams had in common, there are a lot of really incredible athletes that are often overlooked in the smaller conferences.
We’ve broken down the list into two parts: returners and freshmen. We used data that took both their NQS and consistency into consideration, and we’ve also outlined the events they regularly compete. In the case of the freshmen, we outlined the top 10 incoming gymnasts and included our best guess at the events on which they will likely see lineup time.
Too lazy to draft and want us to do it for you? We have you covered there, too.
Let us know who you think we missed in the comments below.

Emili Dobronics and Jada Rondeau both did AA for EMU last year and both did well on floor. Emili had a good NQS on beam and Jada was solid on bars.
