Devon Achane Dynasty Rookie Profile: NFL
Devon Achane is pound-for-pound one of the best backs in this draft class. Now nobody ever calls a big man the best pound-for-pound anything. Size matters at the running back position and size is the one area in which Achane does not excel. Achane is listed at 185 pounds, historically fantasy-relevant running backs are 200+.
Speed is the name of his game, he possesses game-breaking speed with the ability to turn any play into a trip to the house. After being selected by the Miami Dolphins with the 84th pick in the NFL Draft, Achane finds himself in an offense that leverages the speed of its players. In addition to his speed, he cuts well, is very elusive, and has great vision.
Dolphins Head Coach Mike McDaniel runs a creative Kyle Shanahan-like offense, one that is likely to find ways to get Achane the ball which is not exclusively between the tackles. Devon Achane has the ability and upside to be an outlier in the NFL.
The RotoHeat team has Achane in the top 10 in our 2023 Dynasty Rookie Rankings, and in the top-12 in our Dynasty SuperFlex Rookie Rankings 2023.
In the Dolphins offense, Achane should take most of the passing-down work, as he is the most dynamic passing catching back on the roster.
His role in the passing game in addition to his workload on the ground, puts him in the RB2 range as a rookie.
