DEVELOPING ASSETS: WEEK TWO
Dynasty fantasy football is a game of chess, not checkers. Whether you are tracking players for your devy leagues or looking ahead to the 2020 class in a more traditional dynasty format, the goal is still the same: put your team in the best position for short and long-term success. Following the world of college football can pay big dividends for dynasty players who follow this advice.
Each week this season, I’ll focus on a trio of games throughout the day, along with some key future pros you might want to focus on as you watch.
WAKE UP AND WATCH
Cincinnati at Ohio State (11:00, ABC)
The Buckeyes came out the gates in week one firing on all cylinders. There were a lot of questions surrounding transfer quarterback Justin Fields, and how he would look as the full-time starter; he did not disappoint. Granted the Lane Kiffin prepared owls didn’t pose any real threat to Fields, as the passing attack did whatever they wanted to do; it was nice to see Fields show off is arm talent as well as his rushing ability.
JK Dobbins on the other hand did not have as an impressive game. He averaged a pedestrian 4.3 yards per carry on 21 attempts only mustering 91 yards and a score. He’s currently DLF’s sixth ranked devy running back and faces a defense that only allowed 73 yards on 23 carries to UCLA’s Demetric Felton in week one. Dobbins is a far more talented runner, and Ohio State is a far superior team; I fully expect a bounce back performance from him.
