Devy Stock Watch Week 2

Week 2 had plenty of upsets and great endings. I will talk about players’ stock up, stock down, and players to keep an eye on. Let’s take a look at players that stood out in Week 2.

Week 2 was highlighted by the Alabama vs. Texas game, but there were many exciting games and tons of upsets. There was not a lack of scoring in many of the games and outstanding individual performances. Let’s take a look at the Devy Stock watch for Week 2.

Stock Up

Raheim Sanders- RB, Arkansas

  • Height- 6’2
  • Weight- 225
  • Draft Eligible- 2024
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 36; RB 14

Sanders was impressive in 2021 and has built on that with two straight games with over 100 yards rushing this season. More amazing is his ability after contact; 58% of his yards have come after contact. In both games, Sanders has forced six missed tackles which almost matched the 19 missed tackles he forced all of 2021. He is showing the ability to have a heavy workload and is trending up to possibly rival Braelon Allen as the number two back of the 2024 class.

Nick Singleton- RB, Penn State

  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 210
  • Draft Eligible- 2025
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 20; RB 9

Singleton was a high-rated prospect, and many knew he would make an impact, but it looks like he took over the primary running back job quicker than expected. He had the same number of rushes as game one but showed his big playmaking ability with two 40 + TDs, albeit against lower competition.

Marvin Harrison Jr- WR, Ohio State

  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 202
  • Draft Eligible- 2024
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 19; WR 7

After a quiet game against Notre Dame, Harrison Jr had a huge breakout game. Through two games, he has 20 total targets and looks to be the deep threat that C.J. Stroud looks for. He equaled his yards and touchdowns for his whole career. We know the pedigree of Ohio State receivers, and Harrison looks to have the talent to make his way to the NFL.

Players To Keep Eye On

Evan Hull- RB, Northwestern

  • Height- 5’11
  • Weight- 210
  • Draft Eligible- 2023
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: Not Currently Ranked

On a Northwestern team that struggled offensively early, Evan Hull was impressive in catching the ball. Hull had over 1,000 yards in 2021 and has been even more impressive in two games. He can run between the tackles and shows explosion to get to the outside. Hull will be getting the ball a lot this year and is a sleeper for the 2023 NFL Draft, even though he will not be near the top of the draft.

JJ McCarthy- QB, Michigan

  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 197
  • Draft Eligible- 2024
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 62; QB 16

As a Michigan fan, I was excited that McCarthy was finally getting his first start, and he did not disappoint. I know it was against subpar competition, but he was flawless. His only incompletion was on a drop by Ronnie Bell. McCarthy took shots down the field and had a highlight play where he scrambled left and hit Cornelius Johnson in the endzone. We will not know how good he will be against good competition for a couple of weeks, but the hype has started.

Stock Down

Anthony Richardson- QB, Florida

  • Height- 6’4
  • Weight- 236
  • Draft Eligible- 2023
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 24; QB 5

How quickly things can change in the perception of a player. Last week in a big win against Utah, Richardson was on top of the college football world. Against Kentucky, he showed that he still has a long way to go in passing the ball. Richardson looked as though he was rushed, and without the ability to run as much, he struggled through the air. He threw two costly interceptions and needs to bounce back against better defenses where he is forced to pass.

Jermaine Burton- WR, Alabama

  • Height- 6’0
  • Weight- 200
  • Draft Eligible- 2023
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 21; WR 8

Many thought that Burton was underutilized at Georgia and at Alabama, and he would flourish. In Week 1, he had two touchdown receptions but was shut down in Week 2. Many of the receivers struggled, but it is concerning that he could not get open, which limits his NFL potential.

Rakim Jarrett- WR, Maryland

  • Height- 6’0
  • Weight- 200
  • Draft Eligible- 2023
  • Dynasty Nerds Ranking: OVR 34; WR 12

Rakim Jarret started the season with a solid performance with ten targets and over 100 yards but was lackluster in his second game. This has been the problem with Jarrett as he has not been consistent game to game in production. The targets were spread out, but he should be the team’s leading receiver and must show that week to week.
