Devy Stock Market

Nathan Powell

The fantasy football stock market is constantly fluctuating and it is always important for us to stay on top of player stocks going up and downs. In devy stock market, each week I cover the best and worst performances of the week and how they impact the value of these players in devy fantasy football leagues.

Up To The Trask – Kyle Trask, QB Florida

It seems like every week this quarterback class is getting deeper and deeper. A few weeks ago, Alabama QB Mac Jones entered the second tier with Trey Lance, then Zach Wilson’s play put him in that tier. And now, Trask is looking like a possible first-round quarterback.

Trask had a solid sophomore season with an 8.8 AY/A with 25 touchdowns and seven interceptions. In 2020, he has taken the next step to being one of the top quarterbacks in college football. Trask has a 10.0 AY/A with a 22-3 touchdown-interception ratio. Trask has had at least four passing touchdowns in each game this season and he had a career-high of 474 passing yards against Georgia. With this trio of quarterback breakouts, superflex rookie drafts in many devy leagues will be more fruitful than normal in 2021.

Defenders See His Shadow – Mohammed Ibrahim, RB Minnesota

Ibrahim burst onto the Big 10 scene in 2018 as a freshman with 1,160 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. I’m surprised that freshman season didn’t create some hype for him in the 2019 off-season, but his sophomore season didn’t live up to expectations, as he only rushed for 604 yards and seven touchdowns in 2019.

In 2020, we are seeing NFL RB ability from the Golden Gopher. In three games this season, Ibrahim has averaged 190.33 rushing yards, 5.9 yards per carry and 3.33 touchdowns. That is a torrid pace and one that should vault him up in what is starting to look like a shallow running back class after Travis Etienne, Najee Harris and Chuba Hubbard.

Rakim The Dream – Rakim Jarrett, WR Maryland

Jarrett entered college as a five-star recruit and the third-ranked wide receiver in the class per Rivals. In the Terrapins’ second game of the season, the 6’0 200-pound Jarrett saw his first real game action with six catches for 68 receiving yards. In their third game, Jarrett had his breakout performance against Penn State. Jarrett caught five passes for 144 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Jarrett was one of the rare freshmen to be selected in traditional (24-36 devys per season) size devy leagues, but in leagues where we wasn’t selected as a freshman, games like last week will make him a top-five pick in 2021 devy drafts.

Time to Target Trayanum and White – Deamonte Trayanum and Rachaad White, RB Arizona State

My eyes were locked in on the Arizona State/USC game due to the quarterback matchup of Jayden Daniels and Kedon Slovis. Both quarterbacks played well, especially Slovis leading the offense to a pair of scores in the fourth quarter but the players who caught my eye were true freshman Trayanum and JUCO transfer White.

Four-star running back per Rivals Trayanum had an impressive collegiate debut with 84 rushing yards on seven yards per carry and two touchdowns. This is going to be an explosive offense over the next two seasons with Daniels which will lead to ample opportunity for a running back to succeed in the offense. With continued production like his debut, Trayanum will be a top pick in 2021 devy drafts.

While Trayanum got it done on the ground only, White got it done on the ground and through the air. White had 76 yards rushing and 70 receiving yards, including a 56-yard receiving touchdown. This backfield pairing is a duo to watch for the rest of the season.

Luck of the Irish – Kyren Williams, RB Notre Dame

Williams had limited opportunity as a freshman with only 26 rushing yards in four games. In 2020, he has gotten his opportunity and he’s capitalized on it with 100+ rushing yards in four of seven games and multiple touchdowns in four of seven games as well.

Williams had arguably his most impressive performance of the season against Clemson on the national stage. He ran for 140 yards and three touchdowns in the overtime win against the Tigers. Williams is quickly playing his way into the top running back conversation for 2022 with Breece Hall and Isaiah Spiller.

Terry Tumbling Down – Tamorrion Terry, WR Florida State

Terry was one of the most impressive wide receivers in the last two seasons, putting up 1,932 receiving yards, averaging 20.3 yards per catch with 17 touchdowns in one of the worst offenses in college football. Terry returned for his redshirt junior season despite already being 22 years old and it has not done wonders for his NFL stock. In 2020, Terry has plummeted to only 12.6 yards per catch with 48 yards per game.

Now, Terry is no longer part of the Florida State football program. The concerns that were necessary for him to return to school and now leaving a program midseason could raise some character concerns that could cause his draft stock to drop. Terry still has the high ceiling of a deep-play threat, but it appears that his NFL floor is very low, it wouldn’t surprise me to see Terry fall to day three of the NFL draft after a disappointing 2020 overall.
