The fantasy football stock market is constantly fluctuating and it is always important for us to know which players have a price that has become exploitable whether it be to buy or sell. Pieces like this one have been fairly commonplace in the industry for a while in both redraft and dynasty, but I will be focusing on college players for devy dynasty leagues and how their week-to-week performances are affecting their price in those leagues.
Ta’amYou Wish You Drafted Me – Jordan Ta’amu, QB Ole Miss
Football’s version of the “chicken or the egg” argument is: does the wide receiver make the quarterback or does the quarterback make the wide receiver? This was an argument had in the 2014 NFL draft when Derek Carr and Davante Adams were both drafted in the second round of the NFL draft out of Fresno State. Both players have had highs and lows in their career thus far, so the answer there is probably a little bit of both.
If you told many college football fans prior to the season that Jordan Ta’amu would be third in the FBS in passing yards through two weeks, many would credit wide receivers A.J. Brown and Dekaylin Metcalf, who account for 425 of his 784 passing yards so far this season.
The Ole Miss Senior has started the season strong with an AY/A (adjusted yards per attempt) of 14.2 along with seven touchdowns and zero interceptions, his AY/A will go down as competition increases, but just as a comparison, Baker Mayfield had a 12.9 AY/A in his final season. Ta’amu may end up being the rare Senior who slipped through the cracks of many devy superflex leagues.
