Welcome to the Devy rankings for the 2020 season. This edition will key in on the 2020 Fantasy Football Devy Wide Receiver-Tight End Rankings that best translate to the pros.
For those not familiar with Devy leagues, take a look back at the QB Devy Rankings. I give a bit of an explanation to the leagues there.
As for the Wide Receivers, this group believe it or not this class is better than the 2020 class that had fantasy players drooling.
Rankings can change drastically based on your league scoring system. These rankings will be based on a typical PPR scoring (non-Superflex) system. With all that said, let us dive into the rankings.

Ja'Marr Chase, LSU (Junior, 2020 Draft Eligible)
Chase benefited from having Joe Burrow under center and exploded onto the scene with an outstanding 2020 campaign. He led all od D1 in both receiving yards (1,780) and receiving touchdowns (20).
After posting numbers like that, combined with the loss of Burrow a slight decline in stats in a really good possibility. However, with his explosiveness and knack for getting open, LSU will find ways to get him the ball and he will no doubt be one of the top WR selected.
🚨 ONE-HANDED CATCH ALERT 🚨

Rashod Bateman, Minnesota (Junior, 2020)
The 6'2, 210 lb junior does not get enough attention. Bateman averaged 20.3 yards per catch to go along with 11 TDs and 1,219 yards on 60 catches all while playing second fiddle to Tyler Johnson. He was on the All-Big Ten First Team in 2019 as well.
Bateman has a knack for using his size to gain separation between defenders and continuously wins the contested balls. With Johnson off to the NFL, the spotlight is on Bateman to become the alpha dog for Minnesota.
The Biletnikoff finalist will be nipping at the heels of Chase all year to become the first WR chosen in 2021.
Tamorrion Terry, Florida State (Junior, 2020)
Terry improved on his numbers across the board in his sophomore campaign, increasing his receptions (60), yardage (1,188) and touchdown (9) totals from the previous season.
A vertical threat every time out, Terry average 58 yards per reception on his 9 touchdown catches. His 6'4, 208-pound frame allows him to outmuscle most corners and win at the point of attack.
Terry stacks up well in a loaded draft class but should hear his name called early in April.
Joe Ngata, Clemson (Sophomore, 2021)
Ngata was pretty limited as a freshman, only catching 17 balls for 240 yards but with the season-ending injury to Justyn Ross and the departure of Tee Higgins, Ngata is the next man up.
Ngata has a good blend of size and speed and should become an instant red-zone favorite of Trevor Lawerence.
He should line up on the outside next to Frank Ladson as the primary pass catchers for the Tigers and projects as a future first-rounder.

Kyle Pitts, TE, Florida (Junior, 2020)
Pitts had a strong sophomore campaign with 54 rec, 649 yards, and 5 TDs. The 54 receptions were a team-high.
He is a strong, big-bodied, playmaking TE who can stretch the field. His speed is what makes him so attractive at the TE position. He was constantly beating the coverage downfield, catching 25 passes of 10 yards or more.
Florida lost its top four WRs to the NFL, so Pitts should see a significant jump in targets this season. Thus making him the leading candidate to be the first TE off of the board.
Pat Freiermuth TE, Penn State (Junior, 2020)
Freiermuth has shown in two seasons at Penn State that he is a red-zone threat, catching 15 touchdowns in two seasons.
He may be the most polished and pro-ready TE in the draft. Also, like Pitts, he can line up all over the field. He is too fast for most linebackers to cover one on one and too big for most corners to man him, creating a matchup nightmare on the field.
