Each week during the college football season I’ll be naming a Devy player whose stock has risen and one that has fallen. This can help you target devys, add players to your radar, or see how your devy roster is doing.

After a slow start to the year, Eno Benjamin blew up for one of the best rushing games in Arizona State history. When new coach Herm Edwards took over, one of the focuses was improving the run game and former 4-star prospect Eno Benjamin was the lynch pin. Not only did Benjamin put up big numbers against Oregon State (339 total yards and 4 TDs,) but he flashed an NFL skillset in the process. Benjamin found some narrow creases with good vision as well as making defenders miss with quick feet and good balance. Add in soft hands while catching balls in stride, and Benjamin has re-entered the NFL radar and has become a draftable prospect.
My top wide receiver of the class coming into the season has been a massive disappointment. After dealing with a knee injury last season, Richards came into the opener ready to have a great season. Instead, he ended up with a bone bruise in his knee and now a real possibility at a redshirt year. Richards has all the talent in the world after setting numerous freshman receiving records at Miami (over such legends as Andre Johnson and Michael Irvin). Injuries aside, Richards is a great talent, but chronic knee issues will tumble the stock of any player and things don’t appear to be improving. If Richards does redshirt and comes up with a good Bowl Game this year plus a clean bill of health for next season, he could rocket into the 2020 top-WR conversation once again.
