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.
90. Andrel Anthony, WR MICHIGAN WOLVERINES (2024 DRAFT-ELIGIBLE)
Profile: The sinewy Anthony was not expected to make much of an impact in 2021 as a three-star recruit plucked right out of East Lansing. Yet he worked his way into the rotation as a freshman, most famously turning his first career reception into a 93-yard touchdown against the hometown Spartans. He exploded for 155 yards and a pair of scores in the game, showcasing breakaway speed and a large catch radius which unlocked a new aspect of the Wolverine offense.
A tall (6’3”) receiver with a frame to gain good weight and plus athleticism, his three-star composite ranking may have been selling him woefully short. Anthony has a strong toolkit and made an impact as a true freshman. The arrow is pointing up.
2022 Outlook: The Wolverines have depth at wide receiver yet no real standout. Anthony figures to start in three-wide sets with Ronnie Bell and Cornelius Johnson with a real possibility they simply cannibalize each other. If Anthony can separate himself within a talented group, it will be a fantastic sign for his long-term ceiling.
