Devy Stock Market

The fantasy football stock market is constantly fluctuating and it is always important for us to know which players have a price that has become exploitable, whether it be to buy or sell. Pieces like this one have been commonplace in the industry for a while in both redraft and dynasty, but I will be focusing on college players for devy dynasty leagues and how their week-to-week performances are affecting their price in those leagues ...

Devy Roundup: Week Eight

Alabama and LSU used to notoriously boast two of the best defenses in the country. While Alabama’s is still very good, the script has flipped. The SEC rivals now have two of the best offenses in the country this year. What a matchup that figures to be when they play each other in three weeks. Until then, we can debate who the top teams in the country are. With Georgia’s surprising loss to South Carolina, ...

Devy 100: 15-11

As dynasty owners putter about the interwebs discussing short shuttle times and dissecting the nuances of the Dominator Rating, Devy owners are intently watching Spring Practices and eyeing key positional battles. They say dynasty football never sleeps, but devy football never even rests. From Signing Day (both of them) to fall camp, devy calendars are chock-full of important dates. The Devy 100 is a breakdown of some of the best collegiate talent around. Players will ...

Devy Roundup: Week Seven

There were a lot of teams on a bye this past week, but plenty of players had great games nonetheless. For anyone playing in devy leagues, it seems like now is a great time to try to acquire some devy players if you have veteran depth to spare or are rebuilding. Across my league chats, various owners have announced they are willing to move devy players to help accommodate injuries and bye weeks on the ...

First, it was Jerry Jeudy’s turn. Then it was Henry Ruggs’s. This week it was Devonta Smith’s. He exploded for 274 yards and five touchdowns against Ole Miss last Saturday, which caused some to debate where this Alabama receiving group ranks in college football history. Do not forget about Jaylen Waddle, another top-five recruit from his class who will eventually get his weeks to shine as well. With Tua Tagovailoa throwing them the ball, this ...

Next Era of Quarterbacks

Week two was brutal for NFL quarterbacks and it appears we are approaching a several-year changing of the guard. Ben Roethlisberger is out for the year and will be 38 before the start of the 2020 season. Drew Brees is 40 years old and is out several weeks, his first extended games missed since 2003. Tom Brady is playing as well as ever but just turned 42. Philip Rivers will be 38 in December and ...

Toward a Comprehensive Model for Rookie Receivers

Recently, I finished creating and writing up an article on my first generalized linear model dedicated to better using past information to predict future receiving production. GLMs, in layman’s terms, help you model weird data, such as the probability of a success versus that of a failure. In that specific example, there’s a pretty intuitive success/failure that we’re interested in modeling in dynasty: breakout rates. Sure enough, I’ll be covering rookie wide receiver breakouts today ...

Devy Roundup: Week Five

A few teams put up video-game numbers this past week but none as crazy as the ones UCLA and Washington State did. A glance at the score and you would think they just played a basketball game. The Bruins scored 50 points in the second half to come back from a 32-point deficit and win 67-63. Speaking of numbers, a few players continue to have impressive outings to help solidify their Heisman resumes. Jalen Hurts, ...

Freshman Quarterbacks: Ballers and Fallers

The fantasy game, especially the dynasty format, is constantly in a state of, not only flux, but evolution as well. In the past decade we’ve seen PPR overtake standard leagues in terms of popularity, and we’ve seen various draft types and league formats capture the imaginations of many leagues, including auction drafts, IDP league, devy leagues and salary cap leagues. We’ve also seen the flex position become a staple of countless leagues as owners constantly ...

We also had a stellar cross-conference primetime battle between two powerhouses in LSU and Texas. As usual, the regular season offers many intriguing storylines ...

Next year’s NFL draft is going to be so much fun! Each fall, I try not to get too hyped for next year’s draft class but the players in the projected 2020 class are exceptional.

First-round dynasty picks have become increasingly difficult to ...

Devy Notes: Under the Radar Wide Receivers

According to Dunbar’s Number, there are only 150 individuals who a person can maintain relationships with. This theory correlates with scouting draft prospects. The deeper the pool gets with talent, the harder it is for an individual to completely analyze and maintain a full understanding of the potential for any given draft class. That’s one of the reasons why we see some players slip through the cracks and fall to the seventh round or even ...

Devy Notes: Speedy Wide Receivers

Having elite level speed can be a game-changer. Subpar wide receivers can receive camp invites and even get drafted if they are fast enough to consistently keep opposing defenders on their heels. In the right situation, a wide receiver that can blow by defensive backs just might become a fantasy stud. Tyreek Hill, Antonio Brown, and Julio Jones led the league in targets going for 20 yards or more in 2018. All three of those ...
