The 2020 college football season was crazy and unprecedented for every team and every conference, but no other conference was more affected than the PAC-12. Due to COVID-19, there was uncertainty surrounding whether it would be safe enough to play close-contact football games. While the BIG-10 was the first conference to cancel the season, the PAC-12 was the last to start their season, not voting to play the season until September 24th and not playing their first game until November 6th. The late start coupled with several teams experiencing COVID outbreaks and cancellations caused many of the temas to fly under the radar of the general public.
Four of the twelve teams only played four games total including Washington, Washington State, and California from the North Division and no team played more than seven games. Seven games is a difficult sample size to use to evaluate a team’s performance for an entire year, and four games is essentially impossible to evaluate the season on. And while the disjointed nature of the season impacted every team in the country, no conference was hit harder than the PAC-12. Many of the well-known players in the conference did not take the step forward that was expected this past year.
The small sample size and chaotic nature of last season does however serve to make many players in the PAC-12 a value heading into the 2021 season. And with COVID-19 hopefully in the rearview, the PAC-12 could serve as a fantasy goldmine.
For our conference previews, we will try to include all the relevant offensive players for the 2021 season, broken into the following groups:
– Fantasy Relevant
– Roster Fillers
– Players avoid at ADP
All teams are listed in alphabetical order.
Coming in at an abysmal 116th in total yards per game last year, California was an offense that struggled much of the year under new Offensive Coordinator Bill Musgrave. Despite an extensive coaching history in the NFL, Musgrave has never really had a particularly explosive offense. With the trend likely to continue in 2021, it will be difficult to trust any Cal players as weekly starters in 2021.
Chase Garbers- Garbers had a solid if unspectacular year in 2020, throwing for 771 yards, six TDs and two INTs. and rushing for two TDs through four games on his way to the QB55 fantasy finish. With this offense struggling to push the ball downfield, averaging an atrocious 5.7 yards per attempt, Garbers is not an option to trust on a weekly basis unless desperate. But he will likely produce a few weeks here and there where it may be palatable to start him due to his better than expected rushing ability and ability to fall into the end zone a few times per year, averaging almost 30 rush yards and 0.3 TDs per game through his three years as a starter. With an ADP of 384, there are a lot worse options than Garbers at the end of your draft.
Christopher Brooks- Formerly Christopher Brown Jr, now Christopher Brooks after changing his name to honor his mother, let’s hope this is a “new name, old me” situation. After struggling in 2020 to the tune of 21 carries for 65 yards and one TD through three games, Brooks is looking to get back to his 2019 ways. That year, he ran for 914 yards and eight TDs and also had 22 rec. for 166 yards and four TDs through 13 games. Injuries were an issue last year for Brooks, but it sounds like he is back healthy and is expected to lead Cal in rushing once again. If Brooks can regain his 2019 form, he should be a viable weekly fantasy option, And with an ADP of 325, Brooks is a player late in your drafts to target for some production.
Damien Moore- With Brooks (formerly Brown) banged up last year, it was the true freshman Moore who stepped up to lead the team in rushing. Through four games, Moore had 38 carries for 188 yards and one TD. While not particularly impressive, the former 3 star, #80 RB in the class of 2020 still performed admirably when called upon. While Brooks should return to lead the team in rushing, Moore has likely carved himself out a role on offense in 2021 and should step into the lead role in 2022 when Brooks likely graduates. Moore does not have an ADP and isn’t someone to draft until the very end of draft, if at all. However he is worth monitoring should Brooks be plagued by injuries again in 2021.
J. Michael Sturdivant- The crown jewel of California’s 2021 recruiting class offensively as a 4 star and #24 WR, Sturdivant is already making his push for a role in 2021. At 6’3”, 200lbs, Sturdivant brings some serious athletic ability with his alpha WR size. Sturdivant tore up the track Texas 6A, ranking 9th in the state in the 100m with a wind-aided time of 10.39 and a non-wind-aided time 10.49 2 weeks prior. Sturdivant’s tantalizing combination of size, speed, and technical ability make it all the more perplexing that he chose Cal over the laundry list of other schools that offered him, including LSU, Miami, Notre Dame, and Oklahoma. While Cal may struggle to produce college fantasy relevant WRs, Sutridvant is a player worth taking at his 310 ADP as one of the best devy options available in that range.
Mavin Anderson- Second fiddle to Sturdivant in the Golden Bears’s perplexingly good 2021 WR class, the 4 star, #43 WR choosing to stay in his home state of California at least makes more sense. The 6’0” 200lbs WR has also been drawing some buzz in camp as a player who could earn a role as a true freshman. Anderson has good athleticism in his own right as well, as 24/7 sports reports he was expected to run a 100m in the 10.5 second range in 2020 before California cancelled their spring sports. Anderson is actually going almost 100 spots higher in our ADP than his more highly touted classmate at 229. He is in a similar situation as Sturdivant in regard to college production, but is still a player who could pay off at that ADP.
Jermaine Terry- The final piece of the Cal’s highly regarded offensive class, the 4 star and #6 TE also elected to stay home in California instead of going to Alabama, Florida, LSU, Miami, or one of the other 20+ schools to offer him. The 6’4” 235lbs (or 270lbs according to Cal’s website) tight end was on Chris Hummer’s list of 100 true freshmen who will impact the 2021 college football season.Terry has drawn some buzz from some local reports as a player who has made some standout plays so far through camp. Terry will need to improve athletically after turning in a 4.65 shuttle and 26.3 inch vert at the opening, but his size makes him tough to cover at times. With an ADP of 259, Terry is not exactly a value, but he is a worthy option for those seeking a developmental TE after punting the position early in the draft.
Kekoa Crawford- The leading WR from 2020 with 19 catches for 232 yards and 2 TDs through 4 games, Crawford elected to return for his fifth year with the COVID eligibility waiver. However this WR room has gotten an influx of talent this year with Sturdivant and Anderson and Jeremiah Hunter, a 3 star WR from the class of 2020, will likely have a role this year as well. With a more crowded room and a low volume passing attack, Crawford is likely going to have a hard time producing fantasy worthy numbers. There are better stashes to be had.
None of the players from Cal have an expensive ADP. However, given the lack of production from this offense as a whole, it’s hard to trust many of these players to produce in college.
CJ Verdell- 2020 represented a down year for Verdell as he battled some injuries. Through five games, he only recorded 285 yards and three TDs with nine rec for 96 yards. However, his sophomore year in 2019 and freshman year in 2018 were far more productive. Verdell racked up 1220 yards and eight TDs on the ground with 14 rec. for 125 yards through the air in 2019. and 1,018 yards and 10 TDs on the ground with 27 rec. for 315 yards and 3 TDs through the air in 2018. The addition of Joe Moorhead should have a positive impact on the Oregon rushing attack as well, as Joe Moorhead’s offenses have a history of rushing efficiency. At Mississippi State in 2019 ranked 22nd in RY and 12th in RYAvg and 20th in RY and 12th in RYAvg in 2018. Look for Verdell to rebound to his previous level of production in 2021 and get back to the NFL prospect people like The Draft Network were touting in years passed. And with an ADP of 119, it’s hard to find a player who can produce at that level in college and have a potential NFL future.
Travis Dye- With CJ Verdell banged up last year, Travis Dye emerged to lead the team in rushing. 2020 saw Dye record 443 yards and one TD with nine receptions for 234 yards and four TDs through five games. Dye also saw some production in a more complementary role to Verdell in 2019 and 2018 with 658 yards rushing and 16 receptions for 159 yards and 1 TD, and 739 yards and four TDs rushing with 12 receptions for 69 yards and a TD respectively. If Verdell were to struggle through injuries again, Dye would likely step up to lead this rushing attack once again. And given the historical success of Moorhead’s offense, that could be a valuable role.
Troy Franklin- A high 4 star and the #3 WR in the class of 2021, Franklin enters Oregon with more hype than any WR in recent memory at Oregon. And so far, he has been living up to the billing. Franklin has been lining up at X with the first team throughout camp so far. Oregon has not had much of a fantasy relevant WR in the past few years however, largely due to a lack of volume. Oregon has ranke 102nd in passing attempts in 2020, and Joe Moorhead offenses ranking 114th in 2019 and 69th in 2018 as well. However, Franklin’s fantasy appeal lies in the NFL potential and recruiting pedigree. With an ADP of 86, Franklin still represents a solid value given his NFL potential.
Ty Thompson- Thompson represents the best QB Oregon has landed in the modern era as a high 4 star and #7 Pro QB in the class of 2021. While Anthony Brown looks like the likely starter entering the year, Thompson has reportedly looked the best out of the QBs at times through camp. Brown may begin the year as the starter due to his experience, Thompson may make starts this year if he were to struggle. Even if he doesn’t see time this year, Thompson is likely the future at Oregon. With an ADP of 101, Thompson represents the type of NFL potential that can be hard to find at the QB position. And with Moorhead’s track record with mobile QBs like Trace McSorely at Penn State and Tommy Stevens and Nick Fitzgerald at Mississippi State, Thompson could see several fantasy relevant years at Oregon as well even if he doesn’t live up to his NFL potential.
D’Onte Thornton- The second of two top 10 WRs Oregon brought in in the 2021 class, Thornton was a high 4 star and the #7 WR. Like Franklin, he’s been making some noise since he’s been on campus going for three catches for 89 yards and a TD in the spring game. However Thornton doesn’t appear to be in line for a starting role this season. Also like Franklin, it’s difficult to project Thornton for much college production given the low passing volume offense Moorhead runs. Thornton is significantly cheaper than Franklin with an ADP of 272 overall and 181 in June, and while he isn’t quite as highly regarded as a prospect, he was the WR7 in the class and possesses the NFL potential to make him a steal at his current ADP.
Byron Cardwell- The RB12 and 4 star prospect in the class of 2021, Cardwell enters an Oregon backfield with several established runners ahead of him in Verdell and Dye. However, both of those running backs are seniors and are likely to leave after this year opening up some significant opportunity for Cardwell in 2022 and beyond. And given the history of rushing volume and efficiency in Joe Moorhead offenses, that could be a very lucrative fantasy role. With an ADP of 135 overall and 148 in July, Cardwell represents a bargain for those with an eye towards the future. His value may not rise much this year, but it’s not likely to drop much either.
Seven McGee- The final piece to Oregon’s highly regarded offensive class of 2021, McGee is even more highly rated than his backfield counterpart as the RB9 in the class. However, McGee is a very different type of running back than Cardwell checking in at 5’9″ 181lbs and offering a much more diverse skillset as more of an all-purpose back. The coaches have also been raving about his ceiling and ability to catch passes. While his size at this point likely limits his NFL ceiling, this is baked into his ADP at 280 overall. Moorhead offenses don’t have a particularly consistent track record of usage, instead he tends to distribute touches on a merit based system. During Moorhead’s time at Mississippi State, Kylin Hill received 76% of the RB rushing attempts in 2019 but only 43% in 2018. Given the early buzz from camp and his recruiting pedigree, it wouldn’t be a total shock if McGee ends up carving a significant role in 2022 and beyond.
Anthony Brown- While Brown is the presumptive starter at this point, he doesn’t represent a particularly inspiring fantasy option in the long term. He’s a starting option at least and isn’t expensive given that he doesn’t have an ADP at this time, but may not have a long leash as the starter if Oregon struggles.
Devon Williams- A high 4 star prospect and the WR6 in the class of 2018, Williams initially enrolled at USC. He transferred to Oregon after one year, and has yet to really break out in his time in Eugene. Williams is still coasting off of his recruiting pedigree with an ADP of 187. However, he isn’t even projected to be with the first team offense at this point in time and has no business going this early.
None- Oregon State’s offense in 2020 ran through running back Jermar Jefferson. With Jefferson off to the NFL, it isn’t clear who will be the starter at running back, the position of value in this offense over the past few years.
Deshaun Fenwick- A little known transfer from the suddenly crowded running back room at South Carolina, Fenwick has impressed so far throughout the spring and fall and looks to be getting the most reps with the first team offense. With an above average rushing offense ranking 34th in rushing yards per game in 2020, Oregon State’s starting running back should present a flex-worthy startable fantasy option on a weekly basis. It may be folly to expect Fenwick to replicate Jermar Jefferson’s production this year with 858 yards and seven TDs on the ground and nine catches for 67 yards through the air through six games. But with a non-existent ADP and a player who I have yet to see drafted in any league I’ve done so far, Fenwick still presents incredible value and doesn’t need to be Jefferson to provide an excellent return on investment.
Damir Collins- A high star 3 and the RB29 by the composite and a 4 star and RB22 by 24/7 sports, Collins spurned some more highly regarded teams like Oregon, Arizona State, and Ole Miss to stay home and play for Oregon State. While it seems like Collins isn’t quite in the race to be a starter this year, the staff has referenced his explosiveness and dynamism when discussing the incoming freshman. The running back room ahead of Collins is filled with upperclassmen in BJ Baylor and Fenwick entering their senior years and former Washington transfer Trey Lowe entering his redshirt junior year. His diminutive stature may prevent him from being a legitimate fantasy option at the NFL level, but with an ADP of 317, Collins is going late enough to warrant a selection with an eye towards 2022.
Zeriah Beason- A 3 star prospect in the class of 2020, Beason held a respectable offer sheet including schools like Arizona State, Florida, and a 25% crystal ball prediction of attending LSU. Beason managed to carve out a role immediately as a true freshman last year earning 148 yards on 16 catches and leading the team with three TDs through six games. Oregon State may not have a prolific passing offense, but at 6’0″ and 195lbs, with solid athleticism and a non-existent ADP, Beason is a player to at least add to watchlists if he isn’t scooped up in the final rounds of your draft.
None- Oregon State is a team that sees very few players drafted in Campus 2 Canton leagues. The few players who do are not drafted high enough to really be players to avoid.
Austin Jones- A high 4 star prospect and the RB7 in the class of 2019, Jones earned some playing time immediately. With 45 carries for 217 yards and one TD on the ground with 14 catches for 108 yards through the air, Jones was the second leading rusher as a true freshman at a school notorious for bringing freshmen along slowly. Fast-forward one year, and Jones absolutely dominated this backfield to the tune of 126 carries for 550 yards and nine TDs on the ground with 21 catches for 126 yards through the air through six games, good for an 86.9% backfield dominator rating. Jones finished the year as the fantasy RB13 on a points per game basis with 22.5 fantasy points per game. A high end college fantasy producer with a versatile 3 down skill set that could translate well to the NFL, Jones’ ADP of 104 is one of the better bargains at the running back position.
Michael Wilson- The WR42 and a 4 star prospect in the class of 2018, Wilson earned a role in this Stanford offense right out of the gate with 14 catches for 126 yards and one TD in his true freshman season. He improved upon that the following year in 2019, leading the team in receiving with 56 catches for 672 yards and five TDs. 2020 saw a bit of decline in his production, narrowly beating out sophomore Elijah Higgins for the WR2 spot with 19 catches for 261 yards and one TD through four games while still earning All-PAC-12 honorable mention honors. However, with leading WR Simi Fehoko off to the NFL, Wilson looked primed to compete for the top WR role in this offense and was named to the Athlon Pre-season All-PAC-12 3rd team. His previous production and anticipated impact for Stanford this year makes him a bargain at his currently non-existent ADP in our system.
Tanner McKee- The number 3 Pro style QB and a high 4 star prospect in the class of 2018, McKee did not actually play for Stanford until this past year in 2020 due to a two year mission trip to Brazil. Despite being labeled a Pro Style QB, McKee actually demonstrates some rushing ability as well, rushing for 539 and 675 yards his junior and senior year respectively. Now back at Stanford, McKee looks to be in a battle with senior Jack West for the starting gig this season. McKee’s accuracy, 73% completion percentage his junior year of high school and 63% his senior year, coupled with his rushing upside present the more tantalizing option of the two from a fantasy perspective. Should McKee not win the job, he will be a 21 or 22 year old “sophomore” QB with no starting experience. At this point, his age will make it difficult to project McKee for high NFL draft capital. However, with no ADP in our database, McKee is cheap enough where the potential college production could be worth the gamble.
Elijah Higgins- Coming out of high school in Texas in the class of 2019, Higgins was the WR14 and a high 4 star prospect with offers from the likes of Ohio State, Florida, Texas, and 34 other schools. He elected to go to Stanford where he only saw action in one game and recorded no stat in his true freshman season of 2019, which is not surprising given Stanford’s history with freshmen. However, last year in 2020, Higgins was narrowly behind second leading WR Michael Wilson with 15 catches for 176 yards through four games. With leading WR Simi Fehoko off to the NFL, it is expected to be a battle between Higgins and Wilson for the top WR role in this offense. With an ADP of 363, Higgins is worth a gamble based on his recruiting pedigree and athleticism.
Ari Patu- One of only two players to ever be allowed to enroll early at Stanford, Patu was on campus before any other QB in Stanford history. A 3 star dual threat prospect and the QB32 in the 2020 class, Patu has performed admirably thus far completing three of four passes and one TD in the spring game. Patu will likely only see action this year in the event of an injury to multiple other QBs. However, if West wins the job this year Stanford would likely be looking at another QB battle in 2022 between McKee and Patu. Patu’s ADP of 381 is likely a little higher than it should be, but is certainly not too expensive that it isn’t worth a shot if you believe in the talent.
EJ Smith- The son of NFL all-time leading rusher Emmit Smith, EJ Smith backed up his name with solid all purpose statistics in high school dating back to his sophomore year in Texas in 2017. The number 2 All-purpose back in the class of 2020 and high 4 star recruit received interest from all of the top schools like Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Texas, etc but ultimately chose Stanford. He received very limited work as a true freshman in 2020, recording only 3 catches for 7 yards through 3 games. With Austin Jones entrenched as the starter, Smith will likely serve a complimentary role once again this year. However, with his pedigree and all-purpose skill set at an NFL made size of 6’0” 210lbs, Smith is more of a stash for 2022 and beyond if Jones chooses to leave. But with an ADP of 146, Smith is currently going in range that will not match his production this year, leaving his only value as a potential devy prospect who will have not received a significant role in at least his first two years on campus.
Cade Otton- The leading receiving option for Washington last year with 18 catches for 253 yards and three TDs through four games, Otton elected to return for his senior season this year. Otton once again looks primed to potentially lead this team in receiving production given the mass exodus of WRs from Washington this offseason and the conservative nature of presumptive starting QB Dylan Morris. While it is difficult to project much volume overall for this passing attack given that they ranked 94th in plays run per game last year, any time a TE is a candidate to be the leading receiver for a team it is worth taking notice. Otton was also named to the First-Team Preseason All-PAC 12 team by the media, indicating the level of talent that Otton is viewed as as well. With an ADP of 178, Otton is the 10th TE off the board, representing one of the better values at the position, particularly when factoring in his expected production this year.
Jalen McMillan- The 11th ranked WR and high 4 star prospect in the class of 2020, McMillan chose Washington over the likes of Alabama, Georgia, and LSU. While he only earned 2 carries for 14 yards and 1 catch for 16 yards through 3 games last year, the fact that he only played 3 games allowed him to consider last year a redshirt year. Washington’s offense is a low volume, slow paced offense from last year that is unlikely to sustain more than 1 fantasy relevant receiving option. At this point, Otton seems like the most likely bet to be the player to lead the team in receptions and TDs, if not yards as well. However, McMillan would be the next most likely given the buzz he has drawn in camp thus far, his projected starting role, and the aforementioned exodus of WRs this offseason. Now, McMillan was seen with a cast on his hand at the most recent scrimmage. He reportedly had surgery and it is not clear when he will return at this point. McMillan may never be a player that you feel comfortable starting on a weekly basis for your college team, but his athleticism, recruiting pedigree, and outstanding technical ability at the WR position make him very intriguing from an NFL prospect standpoint. His ADP has hovered consistently around 83, making him a value if you see the NFL potential or expensive if you do not.
Rome Odunze- The lesser ranked of the two prizes in Wahsington’s recruiting class last year, Odunze was still a 4 star prospect and the WR40 in the class of 2020. Odunze did outperform McMillan last year however, earning six catches for 72 yards through four games. Odunze has also drawn some buzz this offseason as well, and the exodus of WRs leaves him projected for a starting role this season as well. While Odunze is also not likely to be a reliable weekly fantasy option given the state of this offense, his non-existent ADP in our system represents one of the better values at the WR position.
Sam Huard- The son of a former NFL QB and the nephew of two others, Huard has clearly grown up around the game and it shows. A 5 star prospect and the third ranked QB in the class of 2020, Huard enrolled early this spring and exited as the third team QB. But Colorado State transfer Patrick O’Brien has reportedly struggled while Huard has made up ground on the number two role. Dylan Morris is the presumptive starter at this point, but Huard’s recruiting pedigree makes it possible that we see him this year or that next offseason begins with another QB battle. Huard’s ADP of 64 and the 14th QB off the board is rather expensive and requires some faith in his NFL potential and ability to seize the job sooner rather than alter.
Jabez Tinae- A 4 star prospect and the WR45 in the class of 2021, Tinae has earned a role on the two deep depth chart after a strong camp so far. Tinae does have two members of the 2020 class ahead of him on that depth chart however. But with a non-existent ADP in our database, Tinae is cheap enough that a gamble on his ascent up the depth chart and recruiting pedigree could lead to bigger and better things in 2022 and beyond.
Washington RBs- The running back depth chart in 2020 saw the top three RBs receive 43, 34, and 23 carries through four games. Head Coach Jimmy Lake has continually split reps once again all fall and it is not clear who exactly will be the starter to this point through camp. This screams running back by committee this year and in an offense that runs so few plays, none of these options are likely to be fantasy relevant this year.
Jayden De Laura- When one of the seven schools to offer a 3 star, #16 overall PRO style QB is Ohio State, it should put that player on watch lists everywhere. But despite an offer from a powerhouse university like Ohio St., de Laura decided to follow Nick Rolovich from his home state of Hawaii to Washington State. The decision appears to have paid off for de Laura, as he started all four games last year as a true freshman and threw for 886 yards, five TDs and four INTs. Washington State didn’t miss much of a beat in terms of passing volume moving the Mike Leach Air Raid of 2019 to the Nick Rolovich Run and Shoot offense in 2020, ranking 17th in the nation in Pass Attempts per game this past year. This volume is nothing new for Rolovich, as his Hawaii teams ranked fourth and twelfth in Pass Attempts per game in 2019 and 2018 respectively. With his off-season arrest behind him, de Laura appears poised to take advantage of the system that made Cole McDonald a high end college fantasy QB.
Travell Harris- With the news that Renard Bell is out for the season with a torn ACL, Harris finds himself in line for a significant workload this season as the presumptive WR1 in this Washington State offense. Through four games last year, Harris put up 340 yards and two TDs on 29 catches which was on pace to better his 47 catches for 536 yards and five TDs in 2019. However, the reason Harris is such an intriguing fantasy option now is because of the volume that Rolovich feeds his WR1s. In 2019 at Hawaii, Cedric Byrd recorded 98 catches for 1097 yards and 10 TDs. John Ursua saw 89 catches for 1343 yards and 16 TDs in 2018. While Harris may have limited NFL potential, he should finish 2021 as one of college fantasy football’s top WRs.
Max Borghi- Borghi was one thought of as a potential top 10 Running Back in the class of 2021 after a phenomenal 2019 season that saw him record 817 yards and 11 TDs on the ground and 86 catches for 597 yards and five TDs through the air. However, after being limited to only one game in 2020 due to a back injury, Borghi decided to return to Pullman for his 2021 season in an attempt to regain that luster. Nick Rolovich offenses don’t tend to feature the running back in the passing game the way Borghi was under Leach, which does hurt Borghi’s fantasy value for the 2021 season. While I don’t expect Borghi to be much more than a weekly RB2/flex option for your college side, Borghi will likely latch onto an NFL roster as a very capable third down back and can provide value to the Canton side of your roster after this year.
None- The Washington State offense is one that will likely be funneled through the top options. And while there is still room for more fantasy relevant players in this offense, it is unclear at this point exactly who those players will be.
CJ Moore- With the news of Renard Bell’s torn ACL and the transfer of the number three and four WRs from 2020 in Jamire Calvin and Lucas Bacon, there was suddenly an opening at the WR2 position for Washington State. Nick Rolovich offenses have historically supported two fantasy relevant WRs, with Bell earning nearly identical numbers to Harris in 2020 with 37 catches for 337 yards and two TDs through four games. 2019 and 2018 saw Hawaii’s WR2 record 87 catches for 913 yards and five TDs and 79 catches for 970 yards and nine TDs respectively. Moore, the nation’s number 1 JUCO transfer at WR, looks primed to be the starter at X this coming season for Washington St. And while the slot WRs typically dominate the targets in Rolovich’s offense, Moore should still have plenty of flex-worthy weeks this season. Moore is not being drafted in any leagues that I have seen, but he is definitely worth a stash at the very end of your draft.
De’Zhaun Stribling- The 262nd ranked WR in the class of 2021, Stribling was likely not expected to have a significant role this year. And despite Bell’s aforementioned injury, he still may not. However, Stribling was an early enrollee this spring and has seemed to earn the X role with the second team. Stribling has been drawing rave reviews from observers and even Head Coach Nick Rolovich himself. With 5 of the WRs in the room projected to receive meaningful snaps this season being redshirt Juniors or older, Stribling is looking to make a case to earn a significant role in 2021, if not sooner. While you likely don’t need to draft Stribling in even the deepest of leagues, he is certainly someone to add to the watchlist and potentially stash late in the year.
None- Washington State is an offense that should produce multiple fantasy relevant options. But outside of de Laura and Borghi, none of them have an expensive ADP.
