Devy Digest: Monday Musings Week 3

 

Devy Risers

Kansas RB- Devin Neal has been someone we’ve been high on all offseason and he continues to be efficient with his touches and climbs up the ranks. He single-handedly carried Kansas to a win over Nevada with 89 yards on the ground, 3 touchdowns and a 59 yard reception.

LSU WR- Malik Nabers was never a faller for us, but is someone we feel deserves to be mentioned. He absolutely took over in the game. He put up a stat line of 13-239-2.

South Carolina WR- Xavier Legette continues to shine and against a tough Georgia team where Juice Wells had to exit the game after the first drive ended up with 7-71. Georgia was shading coverage towards his side and he still played pretty well.

Devy Quandaries

Clemson QB- Cade Klubnik has looked okay, but expectations were a lot higher coming into the season, especially with the weapons at wide receivers and a run game to take stress off of him. Clemson heads into conference play now, but if you have him, he is someone that is a little worrisome. He’s limited his turnover worthy plays, but he doesn’t look comfortable.

Devy Fallers

Alabama WR- Malik Benson was someone who went early in startups and supplementals and he has not made any impact. Coming into the season, our worries were the receiving room and seniority matters for this program. His only chance of meaningful snaps would be the slot position and he wasn’t able to secure the position. He’s playing limited snaps and a Quarterback position in flux.

C2C Names to Watch

Boston College QB- Thomas Castellanos is about 5% rostered across all C2C leagues and he has a firm hold of the Quarterback position. He has gotten more comfortable with each passing game and is a threat to run the ball as he has gained more than 65 yards in each game this year.

UMASS RB- Kay’ron Lynch-Adams is about 16% rostered and has been efficient with his touches. Taking a look at their schedule, he could easily be a flex option in 4 to 5 games. He put together his best game this past weekend against Eastern Michigan with 26 carries 129 yards and a touchdown. He doesn’t really have a receiving profile, so the majority of his work will come on the ground.

Temple RB- Kyle Monangai is someone worth watching. Coming into the season Samuel Brown was expected to lead the backfield, but due to injuries it has opened the door for Monangai, who has looked very efficient with his touches. With 3 touchdowns and over 140 yards on the ground this past weekend versus Virginia Tech, he is a name to watch as we see how this backfield shapes out when Brown does return.

NC State WR- Kevin Concepcion is about 10% rostered across all C2C leagues, and is someone that we’ve been high on since before fall camp opened up. He hauled in 7 catches for 62 yards and continues to lead the team in receptions as a true Freshman. We put you on to him before the season started and it’s all coming together.

Auburn TE- Rivaldo Fairweather once again shows up on our list as he’s put back to back games where for the position, is worth taking note. His athleticism is proving he belongs at this level.

Musings wrap up

UCLA QB- Dante Moore looked great as they wrapped up non-conference play and now UCLA has a tough stretch ahead of them and first up is at Utah next week. We’ll be looking forward to seeing how he plays. Arizona State QB- Jaden Rashada was unable to play due to an injury and Arizona State got shut out in a loss to Fresno State at home. We’ll have to see if he is healthy enough to play next week. Tulane QB- Michael Pratt missed his second consecutive game with an injury. Tulane was able to pull off a win without him, but they’ll need him back if they want to win out. Arkansas RB- Raheim Sanders missed his second consecutive game, which is worrisome. We’ll have to see if he is able to practice next week. Ole Miss RB- Quinshon Judkins was listed as doubtful but still gave it a go. He doesn’t look as explosive as last year and is a situation worth monitoring. Notre Dame RB- Audric Estime continues to look great, they have a tough matchup next week against Ohio State. South Carolina WR- Juice Wells, looked great in the first series against Georgia, but was not able to return due to a foot injury. We’ll have to monitor that situation going forward. Ole Miss WR- Tre Harris was not available this past weekend due to an injury. Michigan WR- Roman WIlson scored another touchdown. For a system that won’t receive the volume we like, Wilson is making the most of his opportunities. Colorado WR/CB- Travis Hunter will be out a few weeks.
