This article is part of our College Football Draft Kit series.
We're kicking off our 2020 Draft Kit for the upcoming college football season with a look at the top quarterbacks in the fantasy landscape. Our staff of beat writers pitched in to write outlooks for the top quarterbacks in the nation and give a glimpse of what to expect from this loaded position group.
There are the established high-upside players like Texas' Sam Ehlinger and Clemson's Trevor Lawrence to go with some ascending talents who aren't household names just yet like East Carolina's Holton Ahlers and Kent State's Dustin Crum. And graduate transfers like Georgia's Jamie Newman and Miami's D'Eriq King are ready to make some noise for their new programs. And of course, there's Heisman runner-up Justin Fields leading the way as the nation's top quarterback.
1.) Justin Fields, Ohio State
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.
