Devy Stock Watch Week 1

After the appetizer of week 0, this week brought many good games and great performances. I will talk about players’ stock up, stock down, and players to keep an eye on. Many players had stock up this week, but I kept it to only three.

Stock Up

Anthony Richardson, QB Florida

Most people did not think Florida would upset Utah, but Richardson showed that, when healthy, he is one of the most exciting players in football. Against a tough defense, he continued to make plays running the ball. He had an up-and-down game passing the ball, but the below TD throw showed how hard he is to bring down and the amazing plays he can create. If Richardson can improve his passing as the season progresses, he will have massive hype for the draft.

Sean Tucker, RB Syracuse

Tucker picked up where he left off last season with over 180 total yards and two touchdowns against Louisville. He continues to show his ability to receive with another six receptions this week. QB Garrett Shrader looked better as a passer in this game than last year. If Syracuse can have an improved passing game, that will open up even more for Tucker on the ground.

Zay Flowers, WR Boston College

Flowers decided to come back to Boston College to build up his draft profile. Through one week, even in a losing effort, he succeeded. With Phil Jurkovec back, Flowers received 15 targets and turned that into two touchdowns. If this type of target share continues, Flowers could make a Chris Olave-type jump into the first round.

Players To Keep Eye On

Luther Burden, WR Missouri

The talented Freshman WR got his debut, and while the overall production in yards was low, Burden scored two touchdowns. He showed his moves with the ball on a short pass and a run for touchdowns. Another bright spot is his seven targets in his first game. I want to see what he does against better competition, but early signs look promising for this future star.

Jayden De Laura, QB Arizona

De Laura transferred from Washington State, where he threw for 2,800 yards with 23 TDs and 9 INTs. Arizona had a bad year in 2021, but things are looking up with De Laura at the helm. He threw four touchdowns and showed a great connection with transfer Jacob Cowing. I want to see more, but Arizona may be an offense you want to check out this year.

Stock Down

Malik Cunningham, QB Louisville

I have been one of the biggest supporters of Cunningham and thought he had a chance to climb up draft boards. The first week was a disaster as he could not get loose in the run and bad reads led to two interceptions. Cunningham can rebound, but I am far out Devy-wise on him right now. I want to see if more teams box him in and if he will struggle as he did against Syracuse.

Parker Washington, WR Penn State

I thought Washington would have a big presence in this game, but instead, it was Western Kentucky transfer Mitchell Tinsley. He received twelve targets to Washington’s four and finished with seven receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown. In a game where Penn State threw 41 times, only four targets for Washington is concerning.

Jaxson Dart, QB Ole Miss

As you can see, Dart is very high in our overall rankings, but he has a limited amount of experience. In his first game at Ole Miss, there was not much that was spectacular, and it put some cold water on the hype of Dart under Kiffin’s offense.
