2019 Fantasy Outlook
The Heisman candidate led the nation in rushing touchdowns with 24 last season and had the second-highest YPC of any back with at least 150 carries. There’s little reason to expect much of a decline in 2019, either. Clemson’s passing attack will prevent Etienne from facing loaded fronts, not that Etienne needs much help anyway. The only concern with Etienne is workload; he ranked 75th in attempts per game and could see limited usage late in games this season if Clemson dominates as anticipated. Even if that holds true, Etienne will still be the top big-play threat in the nation. Read Past Outlooks
Rebounds with superb game

October 13, 2019
Etienne rushed 17 times for 127 yards in Saturday's 45-14 win over Florida State. He also caught one pass for three yeards and a touchdown and completed a 23-yard pass.
ANALYSIS
Last week's near-loss against UNC was probably one of the worst performances of Etienne's career, but he bounced back in a big way on Saturday. His Heisman campaign was doomed to be dead on arrival, as Clemson's easy schedule makes the team prone to bench their starters early. Couple that with some stolen rushes from Lyn-J Dixon, and the result is a soft cap on Etienne's overall production. Some tough upcoming matchups against Wake Forest and South Carolina should keep him on the field more frequently.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
What Etienne did on just 107 carries as a freshman is remarkable. He averaged 7.16 yards per carry and racked up 13 touchdowns, which matched what Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor posted with 192 more carries. This isn't a knock against Taylor as much as it is a credit to Etienne's explosiveness. He may well be the fastest running back in the nation and has the build to hold up with an increased workload. Clemson's backfield depth does put a cap on Etienne's expected volume, but his talent makes him worth targeting nonetheless.
