If you already find yourself enamored with the deep-dive of dynasty fantasy football, joining a Devy league is the natural progression for fantasy fanatics. Player values fluctuate as the college football weeks fly by, making our updated Week 15 1QB and Superflex Devy rankings for dynasty leagues the most comprehensive set of rankings to date.
What’s the difference between Devy and dynasty rankings?
I know some of you are asking, “What is Devy fantasy football?” and how does it differ from regular dynasty rankings?
Devy is a niche dynasty fantasy football game that incorporates the drafting of current college football prospects even before they enter their names into the NFL Draft. Current college football players and incoming freshmen are typically eligible to be drafted in Devy drafts. Each league is slightly different, however, and you could stumble across some Devy rankings with top high-school prospects included.
As you can see in our updated dynasty rankings table going into Week 15, we offer both 1QB and Superflex Devy rankings for an easier understanding of each player’s value. Even though 1QB is the more traditional form of fantasy football, our updated Devy rankings are also useful in the ever-growing Superflex format. With the ability to choose between starting a quarterback or a skill-position player, quarterbacks are often valued much higher in our Superflex rankings.
Week 14 Devy Wrap-Up
The number of players opting out to focus on the 2021 NFL Draft grows by the day, with Louisville wide receiver Tutu Atwell the most recent addition to a list that includes Ja’Marr Chase, Kenneth Gainwell, Terrace Marshall, Kylin Hill, Rashod Bateman, Kennedy Brooks, and Cardinals teammate Javian Hawkins. With regular-season play wrapping up over the next couple of weeks, you should expect to see more of this as teams transition to bowl game preparation. We generally get a decent amount of prospects pulling out of meaningless bowl games, and that number should grow even larger in this unique season of college football.

As far as the players still on the field there were many standout performances worth pointing out in our updated 1QB and Superflex Devy rankings. Alabama teammates Devonta Smith (eight receptions, 231 yards, three touchdowns) and Najee Harris (145 rushing yards, three touchdowns) were dominant in the Crimson Tide’s 55-17 victory over LSU. Once again, they showed why they’re so highly thought of in the Devy fantasy football community.
Both Alabama players are potential Devy cornerstones expected to be drafted in the early rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft. Harris is neck-and-neck with Clemson’s Travis Etienne as RB1 in our updated Devy rankings. Smith, on the other hand, may be the best wide receiver in the entire class. Many (foolish) people will downgrade Smith due to his weight, but smart fantasy managers will draft the Alabama wide receiver and flourish for the next ten years.
Other top Week 14 Devy performances to keep an eye on
Other top Week 14 Devy performances include Ohio State wide receiver Chris Olave (10 receptions, 139 yards, 1 TD), Texas A&M tight end Jalen Wydermyer (8 receptions, 89 yards, 2 TDs), South Carolina running back Kevin Harris (210 rushing yards, 1 TD), Notre Dame wide receiver Javon McKinley (7 receptions, 111 yards, 3 TD), and North Carolina running back Michael Carter (three rushing touchdowns),
Before we get to the top Devy matchups to watch in Week 15, we must first eliminate the games that are no longer on this weekend’s schedule. Among the matchups no longer being played this weekend: Michigan @ #4 Ohio State, Ole Miss @ #5 Texas A&M, #8 Cincinnati @ #24 Tulsa, and Purdue @ #12 Indiana.
The list of cancelations grows by the day, but I’m comfortable saying no loss is more impactful than the rivalry game showdown between Michigan and Ohio State. Not only is the rivalry game annually one of the biggest college football games of the year, but the cancelation led to the Big Ten changing course on a months-long policy that would’ve made Ohio State ineligible for the Big Ten Championship.
A number of Devy players to watch in Week 15 despite cancelations
Now that we’ve gone over what we won’t be watching this weekend, it’s time to dive into our Week 15 1QB and Superflex Devy rankings weekend watchlist. Even with a handful of ranked opponents forced to sit out this weekend, Week 15’s schedule still offers a couple of Top 25 matchups:
#9 Georgia @ #25 Missouri, #17 North Carolina @ #10 Miami, LSU @ #6 Florida, #22 Oklahoma State @ Baylor, #1 Alabama @ Arkansas, #15 USC @ UCLA, and San Diego State @ #18 BYU are among the top games to watch in Week 15.
There are plenty of future Devy superstars worth scouting this weekend, including a handful each at Alabama (Mac Jones, Najee Harris, Devonta Smith), Georgia (George Pickens, JT Daniels, Zamir White), North Carolina (Javonte Williams, Michael Carter, Sam Howell, Dyami Brown, Dazz Newsome), Oklahoma State (Chuba Hubbard, Tylan Wallace), USC (Kedon Slovis, Amon-Ra St. Brown), and Florida (Kyle Pitts, Kyle Trask, Kadarius Toney).
