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.
Corbin is Coming – Reggie Corbin, RB Illinois
Reggie Corbin had a quiet collegiate career entering 2018. The redshirt junior had only 601 career rushing yards in his first two seasons. In 2018, he has seen more of a role and has been the most productive of his career in the last several weeks.
Corbin is listed as the RB3 on the Illinois depth chart by Ourlads, but that hasn’t stopped him from putting up numbers in recent weeks. Corbin has 100 or more rushing yards in four of his last five games, despite averaging just 11.4 carries per game with a yards-per-carry average of 10.9 in those games. Last week, Corbin had the best game of his career, finishing second in the nation for the week with 213 rushing yards to go with two touchdowns against Minnesota.
Corbin’s profile isn’t one that suggests a player who will leave early for the NFL, so he could another senior gem I talk about weekly for devy leagues, particularly if his volume increases based on his production this season.

Ware is Stephen Carr – Aca’cedric Ware, RB USC
Entering the season, many expected sophomore Stephen Carr to lead the USC backfield with Ronald Jones now in the NFL. However, Carr has not shown the year two progression that many expected and the Trojans have had a different RB1. That RB1 is Aca’cedric Ware.
Ware entered his senior season with very little buzz as he had not produced much entering his senior year. Ware didn’t eclipse 80 carries or 400 rushing yards in his first three seasons, but he has done that and more in 2018. Most of Ware’s production has come in three of his eight games, but those have been three big games, where he averaged 16 carries for 159.33 yards and two touchdowns.
Any time a player is able to have big games like that at a school like USC, they are going to at least get on the NFL radar. Ware is a senior to track for rookie drafts in deeper devy leagues.
Singletary playing like Doubletary – Devin Singletary, RB FAU
Devin Singletary was put on the devy map in 2017 with 1,918 rushing yards and 32 rushing touchdowns. With those numbers, he became one of the most highly-coveted non-Power five players in devy leagues last off-season.
Singletary had a less than impressive start to the 2018 season, averaging only 70 rushing yards per game in his first three games (we will pretend he didn’t have five rushing touchdowns in one of those games). He failed to eclipse five yards per carry in any of those outings.
Since the slow start, Singletary has returned to being one of the most productive running backs in the nation. Singletary has run for 118 yards or more in five of his last six games and he ran for a season-high 184 rushing yards to go with three rushing touchdowns last week against FIU.
With the stacked 2020 running back class, it would be wise for Singletary to enter the NFL draft in 2019, and if he does, he has a good chance at being drafted as a top five back in the class. In devy leagues where he isn’t owned, he should be in consideration for an early first-round rookie pick.
Tamorrion Takes Off – Tamorrion Terry, WR FSU
The days of #TeamBigWR spats on Twitter have mostly come and gone, as even the most ardent believers have cooled their takes with the success of many smaller wide receivers in today’s NFL. That being said, it doesn’t mean I’m not going to get excited about a redshirt freshman wide receiver measuring in at 6’4” 197 pounds.
And, it’s not just the size of Tamorrion Terry that should get people excited, it’s also his big play ability. Terry is fifth in the nation with 22.0 yards per catch. He had his breakout game last week with five catches for 142 receiving yards and two touchdowns against NC State. The Seminoles offense has been poor, but Terry has accounted for 20% of the Seminoles receiving yards on only 23 catches.
Terry is unowned in all but the deepest of devy leagues, but his size and big-play ability will make him one of my favorite targets in devy drafts this off-season. His low reception volume may keep him lower on people’s radar, which will make him an even better value.
