There is a growing movement in the Dynasty community toward “devy” players. The term “devy” refers to developmental players carried on the dynasty league rosters. These devy players are usually college players but can even be high school athletes. Each week of the offseason and season, we looked at a different set of devy rankings.
As we survey devy prospects, we examine traits, abilities, and skill sets that will translate to the NFL. This week, our final edition of the season, we will look at the top 10 Freshmen devy prospects. We value the players who will contribute at the professional level higher than the younger players.
10. J.T. Daniels – QB (USC) – After playing high school football at national powerhouse Mater Dei, Daniels was the second USC player to graduate high school a full year early. The other was John David Booty in 2003. Daniels was a big-time recruit for the Trojans. He was named the 2017 Gatorade National Player of the Year, Max Preps National Player of the Year, National High School Coaches Association Player of the Year, and USA Today All-USA first team. It was no surprise to see him gain the starting role quickly. Daniels is young, turning 19 years of age this coming February. He is 6-foot-3, 210 pounds with a great football mind. So far in his young career, the results have been what should be expected, playing better against bad teams and struggling against the better teams on the schedule. He had a strong game in the 39-36 thrilling victory over Washington State. In that contest, Daniels completed 17 of his 26 passes (65% completion average) for 241 yards and 3 touchdowns. He missed the loss to Arizona State as Daniels was not cleared from the concussion protocol in time. The Trojans missed their star. So far, Daniels has his team in line for a bowl game and the future is bright.
