What is a Devy Fantasy league?
“Devy” is short for developmental. In devy fantasy leagues, you are able to draft players who are still in college and have yet to enter the NFL. Think of devy as a subdivision or an addition to your dynasty leagues. In normal devy leagues, the players you draft don’t contribute to your weekly point totals. These players typically stay on a taxi squad in your dynasty leagues until they become NFL rookies.
How do you play Devy fantasy football?
There are a ton of different ways to implement devy into your leagues, and you can make it as basic or as involved as you’d like. This really just comes down to your individual league and how comfortable your leaguemates are with the format. Some leagues only allow for 1-2 devy players on each roster in an attempt to not completely ravage future rookie drafts. For other leagues, like Campus to Canton leagues, you have an entire college roster in addition to a full NFL roster. Those leagues can be 20+ rounds of college players, for the true sickos out there.
