The purpose of this series is to provide a ceiling and a floor for devy prospects. We also provide an example of a player in which the prospect could reach their level of production. This is not a player comparison in regards to style of play, but more so used for what we think the high or low end of production could be for fantasy purposes.

There is not much tape to watch as he had 60 carries and 2 receptions. His High School numbers are jaw-dropping as he accumulated 7,169 rushing yards in his 4 years with 119 rushing TDs. He averaged 9.7 yards per carry and clearly was just better than any defense he faced. I understand that these numbers are against high schoolers, but for a redshirt freshman devy deep dive, I have to look at the data I have. In high school, he only had 13 receptions and clearly was not a factor in the passing game at Georgia so far. After watching his snaps against Vanderbilt, Zamir hits open spaces hard and runs with authority. He appears elusive and has the home run speed to make opposing defenses uncomfortable. We are still in the evaluation stage, and at this point, I do not feel comfortable making statements about him being the next Todd Gurley.

Ceiling Projection: To be determined

White is a young and still raw prospect. He has such limited usage so far at Georgia, but looks ready to take on a bigger role in 2020. He sustained two ACL injuries within a year, so he inevitably will carry a high injury risk tag going forward. I remember being high on Lattimore when he was destroying top-end SEC defenses, and he was supposed to be the next “great”. Two gruesome injuries occurred and although he was drafted, he never accrued an NFL carry. It’s heartbreaking honestly, but a cruel reminder that hype does not always translate. Be cautious here.

Dynasty Outlook

At this point, the hope is Zamir can put together a full season as the RB1 at Georgia. There was no need this year to give him a full workload with Swift being the lead back. For devy purposes, depending on league size and the total devy allotment, I could see him being unrostered in some formats (ex: 12 team leagues with 1 devy slot per team). His potential is immense, but I would prefer a safer option in smaller devy formats.
