Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Devy Review - Volume 2. This will be a bi-weekly focus on two or three Devy players at each position and key performances.
With this collegiate year being as whacky as it has been, we will be doing bi-weekly reviews on the college season and touch on the key performers.
This week touches on a few known commodities in the devy community, but it keys in on two players from Florida Gators this week.

Zach Wilson, BYU Tigers
It is time to start taking Zach Wilson seriously. Wilson had his way with Louisiana Tech both through the air and on the ground. He was 24/26 for 325 and two touchdowns in addition to having 43 rushing yards and three more TDS. Wilson now has 11 total touchdowns on the season and is playing his way into the conversation as a first-round/early second QB.
Kyle Trask, Flordia Gators
Trask took a major jump last season, his first full season as the starter, and has continued right where he left off. The senior from Florida has started off as hot as anyone in the country, 684 passing yards, 10 touchdowns (tied for second in the nation), one int, 91.8 QB (4th best in the nation).
He may not get the love that other star QBs have got, but if Trask keeps this up, he will not only be in the Heisman talk, but he could play himself into the first round of the draft.
Be honest -- do you think you could tackle Travis Etienne? pic.twitter.com/SO7Wc3JZv2

Travis Etienne, Clemson Tigers
Etienne is clearly in the conversation for one of the top backs this season, and he certainly proved that on Saturday.
He ran for 73 yards while catching five balls for 113 yards, totaling two touchdowns. The five catches are key stat here, as Etienne continues to prove he is a complete three-down back that can handle any role in the offense.
Breece Hall, Iowa State Cyclones
Hall is fourth in the nation in rushing yards (397) and tied for second in TDs (6). He is the focal point to the Cyclones offense and just keeps putting up stats.
He is a bigger back (6'1", 215) who is extremely tough to take down which makes up for him not being a true "burner". Would like to see a little bit more out of him in the passing game, but that could just be a case of how the Cyclones use him.
Wide Receivers and Tight Ends
Kyle to Kyle.
Kyle Trask: 416 Pass Yds, 6 TD
Kyle Pitts: 170 Rec Yds, 4 TD

Kyle Pitts TE, Florida Gators
Arguably the most athletic TE in the country, Pitts is dominating every defense he sees. He has six touchdowns on 12 receptions to go with 227 yards receiving.
Florida has done a good job lining Pitts up all over the field. He caught a crossing route, a back-shoulder fade, and a 50/50 ball on Saturday.
A walking mismatch all over the field, he is a very dangerous weapon in the RedZone. That is a trait that will carry over to Sundays.
Jaylen Waddle WR, Alabama Crimson Tide
The ever explosive Waddle had his second straight game over 100 yards on Saturday against Texas A&M.
He totaled 142 yards on five receptions and a touchdown. In a loaded wide receiver draft class, Waddle has shown that he belongs and will be a hot commodity come draft day.
Jordan Addison WR, Pittsburgh Panthers
What a hot start for the true freshman!
In four games, Addison has totaled 23 receptions, 246 yards, and 3 touchdowns. His 23 receptions are good for 4th in the nation.
Addison may not have been on many devy radars to start the year, but the shifty slot receiver is starting to open some eyes.
