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.
The nation is starting to catch onto the talented RB from Memphis, who is turning in dominating performance after dominating performance. Though Memphis has lost 3 games, Henderson is joining the Heisman conversation after slicing up undefeated UCF with 31 rushes for 199 yards and a touchdown. The week before, Henderson carved up ACC team UConn for 174 yards and 3 touchdowns on only 14 carries (averaging 12.43 yards per carry).
The 5’9 200 pound back has great elusiveness but can also pack a punch despite his stature. Henderson is carved out for the passing schemes of the NFL. Henderson has showcased the type of receiving ability NFL teams dream of. He reminds of me a bulkier Chris Thompson and could be suited for a 3 down role at the NFL level. It may be too late to jump on the bandwagon of this Junior, but he should compete to be one of the top RBs taken in the 2019 NFL Draft if he declares.
The oft injured Miami wideout has been on this list before, but his stock will never be lower again. Richards has retired from football due to a disabling neck injury. It is unknown when the injury happened, but it is a major disappointment for the player who broke Michael Irvin’s freshman receiving record. Richards was extremely talented and was a high devy pick in many circles. Personally, I had him in numerous dynasty leagues and was pulling for him to have a productive NFL career. Richards had been dealing with numerous injuries including hamstring, knee, and ankle issues throughout his 2+ years with the Miami program. Richards is done and no longer a future fantasy football option. Hopefully he will have success in his life after football.
