Justin Fields
QuarterbackQB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
In most years, a 40:1 TD:INT and 10 rushing touchdowns at the helm of an undefeated team would give a player a pretty compelling case for the Heisman. That was Fields last season, but he was up against a historic season from Joe Burrow for the award. Now Burrow is off to the NFL and Fields is the top overall player in college fantasy football, and he’s arguably worthy of that distinction in a non-fantasy lens as well. At 6-3, 228 with powerful athleticism and a big arm, Fields simply takes over games every time he steps on the field. He had eight games with at least one rushing touchdown on top of multiple passing touchdowns. Tack on the fact that he plays in a well-designed offense loaded with weapons like Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson and there’s reason to believe Fields can come close to replicating his 2019 passing stats. There’s also a chance that Fields’ rushing production sees a slight uptick with J.K. Dobbins gone and Ohio State having somewhat of an unproven backfield by its usual standards. Fields’ ability to affect the game through the air and on the ground, along with his stellar supporting cast, make him the clear top player for fantasy in 2020. Read Past Outlooks
Tosses two critical interceptions
December 29, 2019
Fields completed 30 of 46 passes for 320 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Saturday's 29-23 loss to Clemson in the College Football Playoff Semifinal.
ANALYSIS
Still battling through a knee injury he suffered in Week 13 and up against a stout Clemson defense, Fields played well for the most part Saturday. The sophomore completed 65 percent of his passes and did a solid job of evading a relentless Clemson pass rush. However, the signal-caller, who came into the game with just one interception thrown on the year, tossed a pair of critical picks that were ultimately the difference in the game. The second interception sealed the win for the Tigers in the final minute. The turnover was not entirely Fields's fault, as Chris Olave appeared to break off his route prematurely, leaving an easy catch for safety Nolan Turner. Although this season ended in heartbreaking fashion for Fields and the Buckeyes, Ohio State will almost certainly enter 2020 as one of the favorites to return to the College Football Playoff.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Investing a high draft pick on a player with 39 career passes playing in a new system requires a leap of faith, but when it comes to a player of Fields' talent, the payoff could lead to league championships. The No.2 overall player in the class of 2018 is a natural passer with a live arm to go with the frame and athleticism to be devastating as a runner. It'll be difficult to replicate Dwayne Haskins' passing production, but Fields is the superior athlete who will be able to post major rushing production to go with strong passing numbers.
