The fantasy football off-season is a long and arduous journey for many. You battle through the final weeks of winter with a forced smile and a warm, potentially spiked beverage. Yet for many in the fantasy football community, the off-season is a busy time in which you’re recalibrating rosters and forecasting the future.
Devy is one such area this occurs. Devy owners are constantly seeking the next fantasy star, often discovering them during a review of the previous season. The Devy 100 is intended to forecast those next stars and identify which talent is worth investing in. For the first time, these are in a superflex format due to this becoming the default at DLF.
95. Cameron Ward, QB Washington State Cougars (2023 Draft-Eligible)
Profile: Ward was a huge winner from the new transfer portal rules. A lightly recruited quarterback out of Texas, he took over under center for Incarnate Word and exploded in 2021, throwing 47 touchdowns and earning numerous Power 5 offers. He opted to join new head coach Jake Dickert at Washington State in an effort to elevate his draft profile and NIL options.
Ward stands at 6’3” and 225 pounds and possesses a quick release and plus mobility. From a traits standpoint, he checks every box. He now has the opportunity to show he can succeed in a power conference. His growth will be a major storyline in devy circles.
2022 Outlook: While Ward is not guaranteed the starting gig, he is the heavy favorite. Jayden de Laura departed for Arizona and Ward was added shortly thereafter. It should be Ward’s golden opportunity in 2022. A strong showing places him directly on the draft radar for 2023.
