When The Devy Breaks: Chuba Hubbard’s Value is Skyrocketing

Welcome back to When The Devy Breaks, an article series providing advice and observations geared toward improving your devy league rosters. The Week 3 slate looked somewhat underwhelming on paper with no ranked matchups. But as is usually the case, we still had plenty of fireworks. Stock Up Chuba Hubbard, RB, Oklahoma State Hubbard was well known in the devy community well before the start of the season. But he’s now a household name following an absurd 269-yard performance against Tulsa. Hubbard now leads the country with 521 rushing yards and seven TDs. The 6-foot-1-inch, 209-pound junior has an elite…...

When The Devy Breaks: The Buy-Low Window On Tyler Johnson Is Opening

Welcome back to another edition of When The Devy Breaks, an article series providing advice and observations geared toward improving your devy league rosters. Week 2 of the college football season is in the books and we’ve got a lot to discuss, so let’s get to it. Stock Up Cam Akers, RB, Florida State Akers is already a top-10 devy pick per Devy Watch ADP. But his performance last week against Louisiana-Monroe really solidifies this position. The 5-foot-11-inch, 212-pound junior was a workhorse for the Seminoles on the ground (36-193-2) while also finishing second on the team in receiving yards…...

When The Devy Breaks: Zach Charbonnet Is On The Cusp

Week 1 of college football had plenty of interesting storylines. Georgia State upset Tennessee in Neyland Stadium as a 26-point underdog. Boise State outlasted Florida State 36-31, despite starting a true freshman at QB and playing in the sweltering Florida heat and humidity. And Auburn outscored Oregon 21-0 in the second half to secure a 27-21 win, continuing the SEC’s recent string of dominance over the Pac-12. Early in the season, teams are still finding out which personnel packages work best, and who see should the majority of touches. However, we’ve gathered plenty of information that we can use to…...

When The Devy Breaks: Don’t Wait to Buy Lynn Bowden Jr.

We made it folks. College football is finally back. And with its return, devy leagues are heating up. The goals for this weekly article series are as follows: Present a “stock up, stock down” section, highlighting devy prospects either gaining or losing stock Engage some of the best and brightest devy analysts in the industry via mock drafts, sleepers, and other crucial pieces of insight Identify weekly trade targets based on current performance and a likely increase in value in the coming weeks There’s a chance more features could be added in the future, but that’s the basic framework. I hope this year’s content will…...

Joshua Kelley, Ke’Shawn Vaughn, And The Pass-Catching Upside Of The 2020 RB Class, Part 3

The 2020 draft class of RBs has been billed as a potentially historic group. And while it’s generally wise to temper expectations about rookie classes, it’s easy to fall in love with this class. Rotoworld’s Hayden Winks predicts seven RBs could be selected in the first two days of next year’s Draft. Thanks to recent work from Ryan Collingsworth, we know that the way in which elite NFL RBs score fantasy points is changing. When Collingsworth looked specifically at predicting college RBs transitioning to the next level, the importance of receiving ability became very apparent: Receptions per game, receiving yards per…...

D’Andre Swift, Eno Benjamin, And The Pass-Catching Upside Of The 2020 RB Class, Part 1

The 2020 class of running backs has been hyped as a potentially historic group. And while it’s generally wise to temper expectations about rookie classes, it’s easy to fall in love with this class.

Who Should You Target Now in Houston? Looking at Buddy Howell, Karan Higdon, and Damarea Crockett in the Box Score Scout

There’s plenty of running back news across the league right now with the holdouts of Melvin Gordon and Ezekiel Elliott understandably taking center stage. But the Houston Texans’ somewhat surprising cut of D’Onta Foreman is also worth a closer look. Houston head coach Bill O’Brien has been clear about his intention to have Lamar Miller be the unquestioned starter. But trying to identify who will serve in the backup role in an offense expected to be one of the league’s best is a worthwhile endeavor. Behind Miller sits a host of potential Foreman replacements. Let’s investigate the three main candidates currently on the…...

When The Devy Breaks: 2019 SEC Opportunity Report

Opportunity is the most important factor to consider when analyzing fantasy football. Whether it’s at the NFL level or in college, the more pass attempts, carries, and targets that a player gets, the better. It’s far from an exact science. But last year’s opportunity reports highlighted the likes of Eno Benjamin, Jalen Reagor, Hakeem Butler, and Miles Sanders as targets in devy leagues set to see a boost in value. In last year’s set of articles I profiled two or three specific prospects at each position. This year I’m going to take a more holistic look at the opportunity landscape…...
