2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 11

Welcome to the 2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 11 in Review!

Each week the focus will be on two to three Devy players at each position and their key performances of the week.

This week will focus on the key performers in some of the top games of Week 11. Week 11 featured some powerhouse schools going toe to toe.

For those not familiar with Devy leagues, take a look back at the Quarterback, Running Backs and Wide Receivers Devy Rankings for a bit of an explanation to the leagues.

2019 Fantasy Football Devy Week 11 in Review

Quarterbacks

Joe Burrow, LSU

Burrow was almost flawless against Alabama on Saturday, going 31-for-39 for 393 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also added 64 yards on the ground over 14 attempts.

The majority of the pre-season buzz was surrounded around guys like Tua and Herbert but Burrow has not firmly entrenched himself in that discussion. He seems to have a knack for stepping up on the big stage when his team needs him the most.

Burrow has thrown for at least 300 yards in seven of his nine games and has thrown multiple touchdowns in all but one.

Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama

What can be said about Tua that has not already been said? This kid is tough as nails, taking a beating against a tough LSU team, just two weeks removed from surgery on his ankle and still managing to throw for 418 yards and four touchdowns.

Regardless of how this season plays out for Alabama, Tua will be one of the first quarterbacks taken in the draft. He has proved over the course of the past two seasons that he can be a dynamic playmaker with a big arm at the next level.

Running Backs

Jonathan Taylor, Wisconsin

Taylor may have had the quietest 200 yard game ever on Saturday. Against a good Iowa defense, Taylor attempted 31 rushes for 250 yards. He failed to get into the end zone but he was very elusive on his runs and was tough to bring down on first contact.

Taylor is third in the BCS in total rushing yards (1,259) and fourth with 15 touchdowns. He should go in the first round of the NFL draft. He also has a strong case to be the top devy pick in rookie drafts next season.

Najee Harris, Alabama

Harris was heavily involved in the offense all game for Alabama. He rushed for a season-high 146 yards on 19 carries. He also added three receptions for 44 yards while totaling two touchdowns.

Harris has had a bit of an up and down year, but there is no doubt that the talent is there. He is a dual-threat back who has a knack for making the first defender miss.

If he declares (which many think he will), Harris should hear his name called early round two (possible round one with a good combine). Depending on where he lands, he could have an instant impact as a rookie.

Wide Receivers

Rashod Bateman, Minnesota

In the other big game of the day that got overshadowed by Alabama-LSU, Bateman balled out for the Golden Gophers. Bateman averaged 29 yards per catch on the day, catching seven balls for 203 yards and a touchdown.

This is the fourth game of the season that Bateman has gone over 100 yards receiving. He could use some fine-tuning, as he is only a sophomore, but he is as dynamic as they comes and rarely loses out on a jump ball.

Devonta Smith, Alabama

Coming into the season, Smith was overshadowed by some of his more highly touted WR teammates but not anymore.  Smith torched LSU for 213 yards on only seven catches.  Two of his catches were for touchdowns and he now has 11 on the year.  He is a speedster who can take the top off of defenses and there are very few corners that can stick with him man to man.

News and Notes:

A few players to keep an eye on that very well may end up in this article in future weeks:
