on

Welcome to the 2020 Fantasy Football Devy Review – Volume 6. 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 the outstanding performances by some relative unknowns.

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

Quarterbacks

Dillon Gabriel, UCF Knights

Gabriel has shown tremendous growth from his freshman year.

He has surpassed his touchdown total from last season, has raised his completion percentage, and will top his yards from last year also.

Gabriel ranks first in the nation in yards (3,353), second in touchdowns (30), and has only thrown four interceptions.

With at least one more season at UCF, Gabriel will be talked about as one of the top QBs in the 2022 class.

Mac Jones, Alabama Crimson Tide

Jones is having himself a Heisman caliber season.

He had his way with the Auburn defense on Saturday, tossing 302 yards and five touchdowns.

Jones leads the nation in QBR (95.5) and is sixth in yards (2,728).

There is no doubt he has opened the eyes of many NFL scouts.

Running Backs

Jermar Jefferson, Oregon St. Beavers

Jefferson put on a show in the upset of the Oregon Ducks.

He outrushed the entire Ducks team by 43 yards.

Overall, he carried the ball 29 times for 226 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught two balls out of the backfield.

Jefferson now has rushed for 120 yards or more with a touchdown in all five games this season.

Jaret Patterson, Buffalo Bulls

Yes, Patterson was brought up last week but his performance on Saturday needs to be talked about.

Patterson exploded for 409 yards on 36 attempts and eight touchdowns.

It was a performance for the ages and Patterson now has 920 yards and 16 touchdowns in four games.

After this game, Patterson has entered the Heisman chat.

Isiah Spiller, Texas A&M Aggies

Coming into the season, Spiller was talked about among the best RBs in the 2022 class and he has done nothing to change that.

He has five games of over 100 yards, and six touchdowns on the season.

The former four-star recruit is the centerpiece of the Aggies offense and will only get better over the course of this season and next.

Wide Receivers

Devonta Smith, Alabama Crimson Tide

Smith has really stepped up with the absence of star WR Jaylen Waddle.

Since the injury to Waddle, Smith has 34 rec, 591 yards, and 8 TDs in four games.

He went off for 7 rec, 171 yards, and two touchdowns on Saturday in the win against Auburn.

Smith has entrenched himself into early-round draft status.

Terrace Marshall Jr. LSU Tigers

Due to the bad season LSU is having overall, Marshall is not getting the love he deserves.

He is the main weapon in the passing attack and had 106 rec, 1,594, 23 TDs on the season.

Marshall should be one of the top WRs taken in the 2021 draft and has a bright NFL future ahead of him.

Taj Harris, Syracuse Orange

Harris had a career-high 13 catches against NC State on Saturday.

He turned those receptions into 146 yards and a touchdown.

Harris has a good combo of speed and size and is used in both the slot and on deep routes.

With a good combine, he could be a steal of a day two pick.
