Dynasty Fantasy Football Rankings: Cornerstone Report, Week One

We discuss some of the young players in college and the NFL who are in the headlines.

Braelon Allen

Welcome to the Cornerstone Report, where we will check in on the young players in football (2024 eligible, rookies, and second year) each week! As the hottest commodities in dynasty and devy, these players can make or break your teams in the future. Here are some of the top headlines and reports for the future of the league.

Shedeur Sanders, QB Colorado impresses in huge upset

All eyes were on head coach Deion Sanders and his son at quarterback in week one against top 20 TCU. Colorado pulled off the upset, partially on the back of Shedeur who looks like he has NFL talent. Throwing for 510 yards and four touchdowns will put anyone on the devy radar. With a wide open battle for the third QB in the 2024 draft, Sanders has his name in the ring to be considered.

Marvin Harrison Jr, WR and TreVeyon Henderson, RB Ohio State disappoint in opening game

Ohio State opened their season with high expectations against Indiana for Harrison and Henderson to establish their future NFL value. Unfortunately, it failed to meet expectations as both were disappointments. Harrison caught two passes for 18 yards while Henderson ran 12 times for 47 yards. With the struggles of the Buckeyes’ offensive line and new QB Kyle McCord, there should be some concern moving forward. Though Harrison is likely bulletproof in terms of his draft stock, Henderson’s could really fall if he doesn’t get more efficient use.

Braelon Allen, RB Wisconsin shows off receiving ability

Wisconsin is transitioning from their historic run-heavy scheme to a spread offense under new coach Luke Fickell. Allen’s fit in this new scheme was a question, with him being a between-the-tackles runner with size and athleticism. Week one put this to rest as Allen ran for 141 yards and two touchdowns, but he also showed receiving ability with seven receptions in the game. The 19-year-old appeared on Bruce Feldman’s Freak List this year and may have a shot to be a first-round pick if he shows his value in the passing game.

Brock Bowers, TE Georgia has versatile performance

Bowers, the top TE in the country, comes into the season with high expectations to show his NFL value. He immediately flashed against UT-Martin with a jet sweep touchdown. Along with that score, he led the team in receiving with five receptions for 77 yards and looked dominant. Bowers may not be a top-ten NFL Draft pick, but he could end up being what Kyle Pitts was supposed to be.

Puka Nacua, WR LAR has earned a contributing role

Nacua has seen a rise throughout the off-season from sixth-round pick to potential playing time as a rookie. This week, Sean McVay commented that he expects Nacua to be an immediate contributor. His versatility as a jet sweep runner for BYU gives him value to fill in what Robert Woods used to be in this offense. With Cooper Kupp dealing with a hamstring injury, Nacua could be used in the offense right at the start of the season.

Treylon Burks, WR TEN may not miss time

Burks suffered a knee injury in a joint practice on August 16th, but he returned to practice this week and could be good to go for Week one. Burks’ value in dynasty leagues is dropping due to the injury and Titans’ offense, but that may be a miscalculation. The former first-round pick is talented and the knee injury doesn’t seem to be slowing him down much.

Good stuff. Alas, I will miss out on Bowers as I traded my 24 first. But I knew that when I did it.
