Devy Stock Watch Week 9

Week 9 has come and gone for college football. So who has moved their stock up or down? @SportsfanaticMB continues to show you the weekly stock market report.

College football has been chugging along and for some conferences are already halfway through their seasons. We will finally get to see the PAC12 play this weekend as they open their season. While the SEC, ACC, Big 12, and Big 10 have now played multiple weeks of their seasons. Unfortunately, we are still seeing Covid affect games in multiple conferences and likely will continue to see it moving forward. However, we won’t let that get us down. We will let bad play get us down, so here are the players who have increased and decreased their stock in week nine play.

Stock Up

Taulia Tagovailoa- QB, Maryland
  • Height- 5’11
  • Weight- 205
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Taulia Tagovailoa was known more for being Tua’s brother than being the starting quarterback at Maryland. That changed after this weekend. Taulia played a great game against Minnesota and led Maryland to a thrilling overtime victory. He looked good passing and running the ball. Taulia wasn’t getting the hype his brother did in football. While I can’t say he’s as good as his brother, this weekends game definitely has him trending upwards.

D.J. Uiagalelei- QB, Clemson
  • Height- 6’5
  • Weight- 245
  • Class- Freshman
  • Draft Eligible- 2023

D.J. Uiagalelei is one of the top-rated freshman quarterbacks in the nation. While we have seen him in mop-up duty for the Tigers, due to a positive Covid test for Trevor Lawrence, D.J. was forced into action and the starting role against Boston College on Saturday. D.J. threw for over 300 yards and two touchdowns. He showed us why so many are excited to see him in the future and already showed poise in a big game. Uiagalelei made some impressive throws and showed the arm talent we all know he has. He’ll be interesting to watch this weekend against Notre Dame.

Kenneth Walker III- RB, Wake Forest
  • Height- 5’10
  • Weight- 206
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Kenneth Walker started his season with an abysmal performance against Clemson, where he even got out carried by his teammate Christian Beal. While Beal is still mixing in, Walker has been outstanding since that game. He currently ranks as one of the best running backs in multiple categories in the NCAA. Playing for Wake Forest, it seems, has dampened the national attention he should be getting. He’s moving up my board if you can buy him, do it now before it’s too late.

Kyren Williams- RB, Notre Dame
  • Height- 5’9
  • Weight- 204
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Kyren Williams made the debut devy stock watch article after a terrific performance in week one. Since then, he’s been a bit up and down, but Saturday against Georgia Tech, he had another good game. Williams has been one of the bigger risers this year. With two big runs and multiple big first down runs last week. Williams is proving he is a true workhorse back. He still needs to improve in the receiving game, but he’s working his way up the running backs list in the 2022 class.

Elijah Moore- WR, Ole Miss
  • Height- 5’9
  • Weight- 185
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Elijah Moore has easily been one of the best wide receivers in the 2020 college football season. Every week regardless of how bad Ole Miss may look, Moore continues to produce, and it seems no one will slow him down. One of the more impressive route runners in this class. If he continues to impress, he’ll have a chance to move into the top 10 of this class.

Jahan Dotson- WR, Penn State
  • Height- 5’11
  • Weight- 182
  • Class- Junior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

While Dotson made a name for himself in primetime Saturday with a beautiful one-handed catch against Ohio State, while it was a great catch, Dotson had a good game last week as well in a loss to Indiana. Dotson is a player to watch moving forward and has been moved up my devy ranks based on his last two performances.

Jalen Wydermyer- TE, Texas A&M
  • Height- 6’5
  • Weight- 265
  • Class- Freshman
  • Draft Eligible- 2023

Wydermyer one of two Aggies to make the Stock Watch article this week. Wydermyer has been having a great sophomore season. His best game came last week against Arkansas, where he put up a 90.8 receiving grade. He also had a very productive game against Alabama in a loss earlier in the year. Tight end is a hard position to scout, and these guys don’t always pan out. However, Jalen looks primed to be a great college and NFL player and has already started on fire.

Holding Stock

Re’Mahn Davis, RB- Undecided
  • Height-5’9
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Sophomore
  • Draft Eligible- 2022

Re’Mahn Davis was a standout freshman last year that looked poised to continue his rise coming into the sophomore season. Earlier this week, Davis announced he’s opting out of the 2020 season and entering the transfer portal. Davis has great vision, patience, footwork, and lateral agility. He has the ability to be a top running back at any program. While we likely won’t find out where he will be playing football in 2021 for a bit. I still think Davis is a player who could be one of the top running backs drafted in 2022.

Demond Demas- WR, Texas A&M
  • Height- 6’3
  • Weight- 180
  • Class- Freshman
  • Draft Eligible- 2023

Demond Demas may be one of the more curious and perplexing players right now in college. He is one of the most physically gifted football players currently in college. He missed his entire senior season in high school but showed off his abilities in Instagram videos. As he built up a name for himself, many of us got excited to see him play this year. We have yet to see him do much of anything. Demas is not a player I would sell low on because we haven’t seen him on the field. The shortened Covid off-season mixed with missing his senior year might be enough to keep him off the field for now. However, he seems to be getting quite restless, not playing.

Stock Down

Kylin Hill- RB, Mississippi State
  • Height- 5’11
  • Weight- 210
  • Class- Senior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

When Kylin Hill decided to come back for his senior year and play in the air raid offense, many thought this would be a great move for him to boost his stock. While Hill showed, he could be a good receiving back, which is something we hadn’t seen much of prior in his career. He looked like he took a step back, running the ball. He looked stiff when trying to avoid tackles and slow to hit holes. Hill may have increased his stock for some based on his receiving work, but for me, he dropped in my ranks after a disappointing season. He officially opted out to prepare for the NFL draft on Wednesday.

Trey Sermon- RB, Ohio State
  • Height- 6’1
  • Weight- 215
  • Class- Senior
  • Draft Eligible- 2021

Trey Sermon has some bright flashes in college, followed by injuries that have limited his upside. Before the college football shut down, we saw fellow Ohio State running back Master Teague suffer an Achilles injury right before Sermon decided to leave Oklahoma and enter the transfer portal. Sermon decided to come to Ohio State, and it looked like the right move to help them and himself. However, Covid shut down college football, and Master Teague was able to get healthy before starting the B1G Ten season. While his overall stats look good, he is splitting time with Teague and hasn’t looked as good running the ball. Sermon needed to go to a team where he could showcase his skills for the next level. Unless Teague suffers an injury, I don’t see that happening. Sermon’s value has taken a bit of a hit and likely won’t make it up before the NFL draft.
