Devy Fantasy managers are always in search of the next NFL star and to do so we must monitor their college careers. I was checking out some wide receivers and Quentin Johnston crossed my path. Big play receiver at TCU that may or may not have been on your radar if you didn’t watch closely in previous seasons.
We all know about the top 2023 draft-eligible wide receivers like Kayshon Boutte, Jaxson Smith-Njigba, and Jordan Addison. With another good season, Johnston could make a case as one of the top rookie prospects at the position and he should be a player to target in your Devy Dynasty leagues.
Let’s take a quick look at Johnston’s outlook for the 2022 season and beyond. Can Johnston be another good prospect in this already loaded class? A few of my devy teams hope so. (LOL)
Quentin Johnston has been nothing but productive since entering college as a 4-star prospect out of Temple Texas. Standing 6’4” and 215 pounds, Johnston has the measurements you would want in a wide receiver.
Although he is a little thin in the frame, Johnston is still able to force his dominance on cornerbacks and defenses. He is literally a “big play” waiting to happen on any given play and has a true alpha ability.
Some may blame a subpar offense and quarterback play as the cause for Johnston to not truly breakout yet, but Johnston was still able to compile 1,121 reception yards and 55 catches. He also was able to haul in 8 touchdowns and 2 rushing touchdowns respectfully in his first 2 seasons.
A key point to note for Johnston’s rise and his upside is the departure of long-time Head coach Gary Patterson. In comes Sonny Dykes and his high-flying uptempo offense. With this type of offense intact we should see a huge uptick in opportunity and production from Johnston this season. Barring injury Johnston should rise in NFL and devy ranks with another good season under his belt. He may even challenge the top guys.
2022 Devy Outlook
The sky’s the limit for Johnston but like any prospect, health and development is a huge factor. He has all the tools to be a star at the next level but needs to put it all together.
I would love for him to add a few pounds but as of right now, he’s solid for his playing style.
I see him excelling as a vertical threat due to his catch radius and “jump ball” like play. Has a solid release at the line of scrimmage but with all raw prospects he still has room to improve his footwork.
Solid but not the best route tree but like I stated earlier, Johnston comes off as a more vertical “big play” threat.
I believe Johnston will take a big step forward and continue his breakout campaign to be on more of the radars of fantasy managers in the future.
He is currently my wide receiver 4 in the 2023 class but could move up. With an already loaded class, Johnston should be a name to monitor in the upcoming season.
