JC Johnson’s Undeclared Gems: Jordan Addison

In a new era of the NIL, Jordan Addison is the first player that truly made his decision essentially a free agency tour. He visited multiple schools including USC, Texas, and Alabama, spoke to coaches, spoke to players on the team, and figured out who could provide the most for him both on and off the field. Now the all-important question: what does this mean for Jordan Addison’s devy value going forward?

2022 DFF Superflex Rookie Mock 4.0: Round 1

Sports Illustrated reported that over 10 NFL Teams graded Desmond Ridder as a First-Round Talent. Should Ridder meet that expected capital, his dynasty value will skyrocket above 1.12. Landing Ridder anywhere in the second half of your rookie drafts is exceptional value. I would not be surprised to see Ridder valued higher than every quarterback from the 2022 class come this time next season.

NFL Combine: “Does Size Matter?” Quarterback Edition

The NFL Combine officially kicked off this week, beginning with medical testing, team interviews, and of course, in-person measurements. NCAA schools are notorious for exaggerating size (aren’t we all). The combine gives us our first look at true-to-life measurements, including height, weight, wingspan, hand size, and BMI.

Devy Players of the Week

In Week 5 of the NCAA season, Bijan Robinson won the Texas RB Battle. With 215 total yards and two touchdowns on 34 touches, Robinson led Texas past TCU to a 32-27 victory. TCU RB Zach Evans was no slouch, with 124 yards and a touchdown of his own, but it was not enough to pull the “Top Texas RB” title away from Bijan Robinson. 193 yards rushing is no joke, but what makes it even more impressive, is that on a whooping 32 carries he still averaged 6.0 YPC. Bijan Robinson had a truly gargantuan effort in Week 5. If he keeps this up, he could see himself hoisting the Heisman Trophy.

The Freakiest Athletes in College Football for 2021: Part 1

This year we will be counting down the most athletic players from the least likely to make an impact in the NFL to the most likely. In doing this we are going to combine the players’ athletic traits, production profiles, and competition levels to highlight undervalued devy assets as well as players to keep an eye on for late breakouts. We will start with the uber-athletic prospects that do not have the production to indicate NFL Draft capital. Let’s dive into the devy dart throws!

Pro Day Round-Up

Today is March 11, 2021, this is important because we are less than a week away from Free Agency. On March 17th we will likely find out where players such as JuJu Smith-Schuster, Kenny Golladay, Aaron Jones, Will Fuller, Curtis Samuel, Corey Davis, Todd Gurley, Marvin Jones Jr., Kenyan Drake, T.Y. Hilton, A.J. Green, and Hunter Henry will land. There are 43 days until the NFL Draft, and in most years we would have the NFL Combine to overreact to, however, as you know the NFL Combine was canceled due to the pandemic. Although we do not get to see all of the relevant players get their testing measurables in the same conditions, we still will get good data from the school’s Pro-Days. 

Devy Freshman Breakout of the Year Team

Taxi Squad Spring Cleaning Part 3

In this series of articles, I’m looking at rookies from the 2019 class that can be removed from your taxi squads to make room for 2020 rookies. These are players that all have little to no dynasty value, but those dynasty owners selected in at least some 2019 rookie drafts. I’ll reference my 2019 rookie rankings from late May to give an idea of where I valued these players. My rankings are for a 1 QB, PPR format.
