For many fantasy football managers, the period immediately following the Super Bowl is a chance to relax, reflect, and disconnect from the rollercoaster which is a fantasy football season. For dynasty managers, there may be no busier time. In fact, some say there is no off-season. It is a mantra I have seen somewhere. I cannot quite put my finger on it.
For devy managers? Clear your schedule, because the work starts now. The devy community now has to juggle two Signing Days and a transfer portal which creates unceasing player movement. It is both fun and impossible to manage, yet we persevere. Below are the top devy talents in the land, contained within an infallible list that requires no criticism.
60. DeVontez Walker, WR North Carolina (2024 Draft-Eligible)
Profile: After a standout season with the Kent State Golden Flashes, Devontez Walker has taken his talents to the ACC, joining a North Carolina team that faces the challenge of replacing the dominant Josh Downs. Unlike Downs, Walker has the frame of a prototypical outside receiver. He stands at 6’3” and has the vertical speed to challenge defenders and make big plays downfield. He averaged 15.9 yards per reception for Kent State and routinely hit on splash plays.
Walker exits the MAC to join the ACC in an attempt to boost his draft stock. The fit is perfect. North Carolina returns a high-end quarterback in Drake Maye and has a ton of vacated targets available. While the jump from the MAC is a big one and we have seen plenty of transfer receiver flops, the bet here is Walker makes a smooth transition as he puts himself on the NFL draft radar.
2023 Outlook: As referenced, Josh Downs is off to the NFL. The former Tar Heel racked up 195 grabs over the past two seasons with over 1,000 yards in each. North Carolina also loses Antoine Green, leaving their wide receiver room needing a star to emerge. Walker is the best fit to be the top option in this passing game with fellow transfer Nate McCollum as well as J.J. Jones, Kobe Paysour, and Andre Greene Jr. working around him.
