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 6 In Review

Quarterbacks

Ian Book, Notre Dame

Book took care of business in a big way at home on Saturday, and this is the type of performance that fans have been waiting for. He was surgical through the air, with a 98.4 QBR, going 16-for-20 with zero turnovers. Book tossed five touchdowns and threw for 261 yards. Book has the tools to be a quality NFL quarterback, but scouts need to see more games like this for the Senior to get drafted in the 2020 draft. He will be on the big stage this week against USC, so now is the time to shine.

Sam Howell, North Carolina

The true freshman had his best game of the season on Saturday against Georgia Tech. He was 33-for-51 with 376 yards and four TDs. Howell has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game this year and is trending in the right direction. There’s still a long way to go before we consider Howell a top-notch QB prospect, but there is a lot to like in Howells game, and he is one to keep an eye as his college career progresses.

Running Backs

J.K. Dobbins, Ohio State

Dobbins is often forgotten about in the talks of the best RB in the land, due to the fact that Jonathan Taylor is running out of his mind, but Dobbins deserves the praise and makes the cases as 1B to Taylors 1A. Ohio State leaned on its stud RB early and often against Michigan State, and Dobbins did not disappoint. He carried the ball 24 times, rushing for 172 yards and a touchdown. Dobbins has four 100 yard games this season, three of which he ran for over 170 yards. Dobbins is a hard-nosed runner who is finally healthy and showing the nation why his name will be called early in 2020.

Lamical Perine, Florida

Perine looked very explosive against a stout Auburn defense over the weekend. He scampered for 130 yards on 14 carries and found pay dirt once. Before this game, Perine has been a bit lackluster, but Auburn had not let a tailback run for 100 yards all season, so this performance made people take notice. Perine is arguably the most talented back that Florida has, so they should lean on him for the rest of the season.

Wide Receivers

James Proche, SMU

A favorite of many scouts going into the season, the speedy Proche torched Tulsa all game long on Saturday. Two of his 11 receptions were for touchdowns, and he averaged 13.9 yards per catch (153 yards in total). Proche has seven TDs on the season and is often forgotten about because he plays at SMU. With SMU now ranked, Proche should become a household name sooner rather than later.

Brevin Jordan, Miami

For the first time all season, a TE makes the weekly re-cap. Jordan showed up in a big way for Miami despite the loss to Virginia Tech. He caught seven balls for 136 yards and a touchdown. The sophomore now has an impressive 16.0 average yards per catch on the season. Jordan has great hands and is a threat all over the field. He runs both deep routes and intermediate routes like a WR but is not afraid to toss his weight around and through a block in the run game. He is one of the most explosive TEs in the college game and scouts have taken notice.
