The college bowl game season has been full of great games and great players who are putting their names on the map to be future stars in the NFL. As a result, dynasty league managers should be taking notes and looking to position themselves to be able to get the players they like the most.
As we get closer to the end of 2023, some of the bigger bowl games are about to kick off, including the first game within the New Year's Six. These four games on Friday will contain several players that will be available in your 2024 dynasty rookie draft.
Get to know them now, if you don't already.
Will Shipley, RB, Clemson: Shipley was not even the Tigers' leading rusher this season but he has had three solid years at the school, including a 15-TD campaign in 2022. He has over 2,700 yards rushing and 31 touchdowns in his career and he has also shown his capability as a receiver out of the backfield.
He has the chance to be a Day 2 draft pick in April.
Jake Briningstool, TE, Clemson: The Tigers are not generally known for producing NFL tight ends but Briningstool is an intriguing one at 6-foot-6. He caught 41 passes and scored five TDs this year.
Clemson QB Cade Klubnik is a name that dynasty players and those in devy leagues should also be familiarizing themselves with as he could potentially be a first-round pick at some point down the line.
Ray Davis, RB, Kentucky: Davis had a huge year for the Wildcats rushing for 1,066 yards and 13 touchdowns. The 5-foot-10 senior who has also played at Temple and Vanderbilt has over 3,500 rushing yards in his college career.
He could be taken as early as the fourth round of April's draft.
Devin Leary, QB, Kentucky: The senior QB could find his way onto a roster as a backup next season but he will be chosen in the late rounds or have to get to the NFL as an undrafted player. The former NC State quarterback has thrown for 2,440 in his first year at Kentucky. He has 85 career touchdown passes.
Leary is a gritty QB that could add something to an NFL roster and he could be one of those dynasty league stashes that pays off later.
