Welcome to the Devy rankings for the 2020 season. This edition will key present to you the 2020 Fantasy Football Devy Quarterback Rankings that best translate to the pros.
For those not familiar with Devy leagues, they are a form of a dynasty league that allows you to draft collegiate players and stash them on your team. That player does not accumulate any stats until they are drafted into the NFL. Once they are drafted, that Devy player that you have stashed will automatically be placed on your team. Devy drafts often consist of 2 to 5 rounds so that the rookie drafts do not get completely depleted.
It is key to keep in mind that these are Devy rankings, not rankings for college fantasy football. For example a player like Asher O'Hara QB, Middle Tennessee may have a great season for fantasy purposes, ranking high in fantasy rankings. However, his game may not translate to the NFL, dropping him lower or even out of the Devy rankings.
Rankings can change drastically based on your league scoring system, so these rankings will be based on a typical PPR scoring (non-superflex) system. With all that said, let us dive into the rankings.

Trevor Lawrence, Clemson (Junior, 2021 Draft Eligible)
Lawrence did very little to hurt his draft stock in his sophomore season. His passing yards (3,665) and touchdowns (36) went up over the previous year. Yes, he did throw four more INTs, but a 36:8 TD to INT ratio is still pretty impressive.
The part of his game that he improved the most on was his mobility. He ran for 563 yards with nine touchdowns last season, compared to a measly 177 yards and one touchdown his sophomore year.
Justin Fields, Ohio St. (Junior, 2021)
Fields is a dual-threat quarterback with a big arm who takes care of the ball.
In his first full season as a starter at Ohio State, Fields did not disappoint. He threw for 3,273 yards and added 41 touchdowns on top of that. The most impressive stat of his season may be that he only threw three INTs in 354 passing attempts.
The gap between him and fields is not as big as it once was, and with another outstanding season, he could enter draft season neck and neck with Lawerence for the top pick.
You can tout your Trevor Lawrence and your Justin Fields. You can have your Sam Howell and your Trey Lance. Give me Kedon Slovis.
As a true freshman:
•3,502 passing yards
•30 TDs/9 INT

Kedon Slovis, USC (Sophomore, 2022)
Slovis is a smart, pro-style QB with a quick release and has shown good touch on the deep. He stepped in for the injured J.T. Daniels early in the season and never looked back, leading USC to an eight-win season. Along the way, he found his rhythm to the tune of 3,502 yards and 30 TDs.
Daniels has since transferred and Slovis has already been named the starter for the season. Slovis is a smart, pro-style QB with a quick release and has shown good touch on the deep. USC is loaded on offense this year, so it should not be hard for him to improve on his numbers.
Jayden Daniels, Arizona State (Sophomore, 2022)
A favorite of mine, Daniels had an up and down Freshman year but he did show flashes of what he can do.
His best performance came in an upset win against Oregon were he threw for 408 yards and three touchdowns. The potential jumps off the page with Daniels as a dual-threat, do it all type of quarterback that transitions well into the modern-day NFL.

Trey Lance, North Dakota State (Junior, 2021)
Lance exploded onto the scene with an outstanding season as the starter for North Dakota State leading them to an FCS Championship and an undefeated season.
He threw for 2,786 yards, 28 touchdowns, and zero interceptions but that is not all. Lance also is dangerous with his legs, logging 1,100 yards on the ground with another 14 touchdowns.
If Lance can come remotely close to duplicating that season, he will be in the conversation for one of the top two or three QBs taken on draft day. Keep an eye on this one, do not be afraid to take him a bit early in your devy draft.
DJ Uiagalelei, Clemson (Freshman, 2023)
Uiagalelei is the successor to Lawerence in Clemson as well as the top pro-style quarterback in the freshman class. His arm strength is out of this world, and that goes well with his bigger frame (6'4, 246). He showed accuracy and touch in high school no matter the pass he threw and has the intangibles scouts love. He should benefit from learning behind Lawerence for a year.
