Devy Rankings 2024

TreVeyon Henderson sits high in the DraftSharks.com 2024 devy rankings after deciding to stay at Ohio State.

Boost Your Dynasty Experience with Devy Rankings

How much do you know about Luther Burden III? C.J. Baxter? Jeremiah Smith?

All three of these guys look likely to become factors in your dynasty league at some point. The only question is when.

No matter what type of league you're in, you'll want to learn about the players in the devy rankings below.

Play in a devy league? Then you'll want to get familiar real quick.

What Is Devy?

“Devy” stands for “Developmental."

In a regular dynasty league, drafted players start scoring points as soon as the season begins. In a devy league, you draft college players and then watch their development until they hit the pros.

You know the excitement of hitting on a sleeper pick in your rookie draft? Devy amplifies that by getting you in on the player even earlier.

And you don't need to be a professional scout or spend all your free time watching tape to succeed at devy.

Our devy rankings will help.

Devy Rankings Help Your Dynasty Play, Too

The main difference between devy formats and more standard dynasty setups is simply getting to know -- and rostering -- the players earlier.

If you play in a devy league that has already drafted, then you can use these rankings to assign value to players on your roster and others. Consider making trade offers to chase some higher-ranked players.

Even if you don’t play devy, these rankings can help you get familiar with upcoming classes ahead of your dynasty rookie drafts.

Improve Your Position in Future Rookie Drafts

For example, 2025 looks bereft of QB talent. So you'll find 2025 QBs low in these rankings. And you shouldn't plan on landing a cornerstone QB in your rookie draft next year.

WR, on the other hand, looks strong yet again in 2025.

Use this to trade your rookie picks accordingly and know what positions you may be able to load up on in future years.

Why Isn't Travis Hunter in the Devy Rankings?

Before we hop into our devy rankings, let's talk about Colorado's Travis Hunter.

The WR and CB earned 2023 first-team All-America honors and the Paul Hornung Award, given to the most versatile player in the NCAA.

It's unclear whether he'll go full-time offense or defense in the NFL. We wouldn't bet on his team playing him both ways, though.

That's why you won't find Hunter in these rankings. His WR upside makes him worth considering later in your draft. But if he goes CB in the pros, he'll be worthless to your fantasy team -- unless you play with IDPs.

 

2024 Devy Rankings

(C.H. Herms also contributed to this article.)

1. Luther Burden III, WR, Missouri (2025)

Burden disappointed on a poor 2022 Missouri team but dominated as a  2023 sophomore. At 5’11 and 208 pounds, Burden has the skills to be a top 5 pick in the NFL Draft in 2025 and an instant star. Missouri returns Brady Cook at QB. That continuity should help Burden. 

2. Evan Stewart, WR, Oregon (2025)

A leg injury limited Stewart significantly in 2023, but he has shown major upside over two seasons at Texas A&M. The 5’11, 170-pounder showcases high-end separation skills and quick agility. He should thrive after transferring to Oregon for 2024. Stewart has the skills to be an impact receiver in the NFL, with hints of DeVonta Smith.

3. TreVeyon Henderson, RB, Ohio State (2025)

Henderson was a surprise return after being atop many analysts' 2024 NFL Draft RB board. But, a foot fracture and torn ligament as a sophomore as well as missing multiple games due to injury as a junior had the NFL skeptical. Though he will split with Quinshon Judkins, a healthy year from Henderson should improve his draft stock to be firmly in Day 2. The upside of an electric starting NFL RB is worth the risk.

4. Quinshon Judkins, RB, Ohio State (2025)

A former three-star recruit, Judkins immediately led the SEC in carries (274), rushing yards (1,567), and rushing TDs (16) as a freshman at Ole Miss in 2022. He followed that with 1,158 yards as a sophomore. A transfer now lands him in the same backfield with TreVeyon Henderson. Judkins ticks about every box to be a three-down NFL RB:

  • size (5’11, 210 pounds)
  • speed (4.49 seconds)
  • receiving acumen (37 catches through two years)

5. Emeka Egbuka, WR, Ohio State (2025)

Egbuka doesn’t have a long track record of college production. He spent his freshman year buried on the depth chart and missed time this past season with an ankle injury. But he dominated as a sophomore, ranking (among FBS WRs with 75+ targets):

  • tied for sixth in yards per route run (3.05)
  • tied for 10th in yards after catch per reception (7.3)
  • 17th in receiving yards (1,039).

Another year in Columbus should solidify his status as a Round 1-2 NFL Draft pick.

6. C.J. Baxter, RB, Texas (2026)

The dynamic freshman spent most of 2023 running behind Jonathon Brooks but flashed his upside late in the year when Brooks missed time. He sports impressive athleticism and caught just one fewer pass (24) than Brooks for the season. Baxter will battle Jaydon Blue for work over the next couple of years, but we like his chances to emerge.

7. Nick Singleton, RB, Penn State (2025)

What Singleton lacks in refinement he more than makes up for with raw athleticism and power. This 6’0, 222-pound wrecking ball has posted back-to-back seasons of at least 1,000 scrimmage yards and 10+ TDs despite splitting work with Kaytron Allen. He regressed somewhat as a rusher in 2023, particularly in big-play production. But Singleton did improve as a receiver. Building off his 26-308-2 pass-catching line as a sophomore could make him a three-down type in the NFL. Expect Singleton to contend for a Day 2 spot in the NFL Draft.

8. Justice Haynes, RB, Alabama (2026)

Haynes carried just 25 times as a freshman. But the No. 2 overall recruit from the 2023 RB class is the son of an NFL RB. (Verron Haynes split six years between the Steelers and Falcons.) The younger Haynes profiles as a downhill runner with the ability to make decisive cuts in tight windows. He figures to have an opportunity to shine in 2024 should he remain in Tuscaloosa following Nick Saban's retirement.

9. Tetairoa McMillan, WR, Arizona (2025)

McMillan was a top recruit who boasts long speed at 6’5 and 210 pounds. He was a main cog in Arizona's offensive resurgence and has easily beat single coverage throughout his two years. The upside is tremendous. Expect McMillan to get first-round NFL Draft buzz.

10. Zachariah Branch, WR, USC (2026)

The top WR recruit in 2023, Branch immediately showed his insane skills and Reggie Bush-like moves on special teams. Branch's size (listed at 5'10, 175 pounds) adds some risk. But his big-play ability presents upside to balance that risk.

 

11. Jeremiah Smith, WR, Ohio State (2027)

He has yet to set foot on a college practice field, but Smith is certainly worthy of this spot. The No. 1 overall recruit in the 2024 class, this 6’3, 214-pound wideout has drawn early comparisons to former Falcons great Julio Jones with his complete skill set of size, speed, and ability to run a diverse route tree. And did we mention that his cousin is Seahawks QB Geno Smith? He won’t be NFL Draft eligible until 2027 at the earliest. But keep an eye on Smith.

12. Omarion Hampton, RB, North Carolina (2025)

It’s hard to watch Hampton’s tape at North Carolina without thinking of former Tar Heel Javonte Williams. Hampton led the ACC in carries (253), rushing yards (1,504), and rushing TDs (15) as a sophomore in 2023 with good size (6’0, 220 pounds) and power. Hampton could benefit from avoiding contact a bit more, however. Whether Hampton develops more patience will help determine his NFL outlook.

13. Ollie Gordon II, RB, Oklahoma State (2025)

Gordon ran the pants off of opposing defenses this past season, netting him the Doak Walker Award. He had back-to-back-to-back 270+ yard games. He has incredible contact balance, great vision, plus the receiving work to thrive in the NFL. Defenses couldn’t stop Gordon even while knowing he would get the ball. Gordon should continue his high-level play into Day 2 of the 2025 NFL Draft.

14. Carnell Tate, WR, Ohio State (2026)

Tate will step into the "X" WR role vacated by Marvin Harrison Jr. Tate got starter-level playing time for most of his true freshman season and may have a QB upgrade in Will Howard. Tate has the explosiveness and ball-tracking to be the next great Ohio State WR, so invest while you can.

15. Dante Moore, QB, Oregon (2026)

Moore displayed some struggles as an 18-year-old true freshman at UCLA in 2023. After a solid start, poor offensive line play and turnovers sent Moore to the bench by late October. Despite these circumstances, Moore showcased a razor-sharp throwing motion and terrific zip on long balls. He’ll likely spend 2024 on the bench developing behind Dillon Gabriel after transferring to Oregon. But a more refined Moore has a chance to emerge as a high-end prospect by 2025.

16. Arch Manning, QB, Texas (2026)

Son of Cooper and nephew of Eli and Peyton, this Manning got some brief playing time against Texas Tech in 2023. He showed solid pocket awareness and escapability. Longhorns starter Quinn Ewers decided to return for 2024, however, leaving it unclear when the 6'4 Manning will get his shot. Whether it’s at Texas or somewhere else, he’ll have a chance to be the fourth Top 5 NFL Draft pick in his family.

17. Nico Iamaleava, QB, Tennessee (2026)

Iamaleava was a five-star true freshman who flashed in the Citrus Bowl against Iowa. He rushed for 3 TDs and flashed a strong arm on his lone TD pass.Iamaleava could put up big numbers in HC Josh Heupel's offense and become the presumptive top QB for the 2026 draft class.

18. Jaydn Ott, RB, Cal (2025)

Ott followed up his Freshman All-American honors in 2022 with a stellar sophomore season, leading the Pac-12 in carries (246) and rushing yards (1,315). Though he carries a lean frame, the 200-pounder runs with a great deal of aggressiveness and kicks into his top speed quickly. Ott may be able to boost his NFL prospects by adding some size without sacrificing his receiving skills (71 catches across two seasons). But he’s got the home run-type rushing skills to be an early Day 3 pick at least.

19. Eugene Wilson III, WR, Florida (2026)

Wilson was arguably the biggest true freshman breakout of 2023. The four-star recruit sports breakaway speed and ball-tracking skills beyond what most freshmen possess. The Gators are likely to lean on the pass and Wilson in 2024. The departure of No. 1 WR Ricky Pearsall leaves even more room for Wilson to keep climbing.

20. Barion Brown, WR, Kentucky (2025)

Brown looks like one of the best pure athletes in the country. He has 4.3 speed and elite kick-return skills. Brown’s production took a step back in his second year, but the raw tools remained apparent. He has upside worth chasing.
