As I sit down to write the introduction, college football conferences across the nation are announcing big changes for the 2020 season. The Ivy League canceled all fall sports this year. The Big Ten and Pac-12 announced that it will only play Conference games and abandon all others. The ACC delayed the start of the fall season for all sports until September 1 and is also contemplating a conference-only schedule. No matter the final outcome, the upcoming campaign will be unlike any other in my lifetime.
Despite the uncertainty, my job is to provide analysis to CFF diehards. Evaluating wide receivers can be challenging in college fantasy football. Do not be overwhelmed. Learn the offensive systems, target players who are attached to an elite passer, and identify underrated receivers in the Group of Five Conferences.
College Fantasy Football provides alternative-reality zealots, NFL Draftniks, and Dynasty and Devy owners a competitive advantage against their opponents. What are you waiting for this summer? Get off the sideline and into the game on Fantrax. We guarantee that you will not regret playing in a CFF league this fall.
There are two popular strategies that are employed drafting wideouts in CFF leagues: Pay up for elite receivers in the first two rounds or wait to buy undervalued assets in the middle rounds. As for my preferred method, I like to find value at the position. I would not select a receiver among the top eight selections. Generally, I wait until the fourth round before dipping into the WR player pool. If I have a pick at the end of the first round (11 or 12), I am comfortable taking two of my top wideouts on the turn, i.e. DeVonta Smith, Sage Surratt, and Tylan Wallace.
In the Summa Cum Laude Mock Draft, I drafted three running backs (Kenneth Gainwell, Jermar Jefferson, and Journey Brown) and QB Trevor Lawrence among my top four selections. Afterward, I pounded the wide receiver position for four rounds, acquiring Frank Darby, Jared Smart, Seth Williams, and Renard Bell. I also drafted two of my preferred under-the-radar wideouts: Jadan Blue and Victor Tucker. My team is provided below:
Among my CFF friends and competitors, some are employing a different strategy for CFF roster building in 2020. They prefer to acquire two receivers early and build around a strong corps of playmakers. In the Summa Cum Laude Draft, Nicholas Allen opened the draft with Rashod Bateman and Sage Surratt on the turn. He also acquired a third WR, Wan’Dale Robinson, before selecting a running back. Both strategies can provide a roadmap for roster building this summer.
For readers, I have placed the wide receivers in tiers—Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude and Cum Laude—to provide flexibly for CFF managers based on their league’s scoring format, roster construction and starting lineup requirements. After eight years ranking CFF wideouts, it is more appropriate to provide college fantasy footballers with player tiers. If you want a look at the player rankings, click on the link below.

Top 24 CFF wide receivers
Summa Cum Laude
Rashod Bateman, Minnesota
I am the conductor of the Rashod Bateman hype train: He is my No. 1 Devy, NFL, and CFF wide receiver prospect in 2020. I jumped on the Golden Gophers’ express last fall when the team won is first nine games of the campaign. I started scouting receiver Tyler Johnson and could not help but notice Bateman jumping off the screen.
In 2018, Bateman set all-time program freshman marks for receptions (51) and receiving yards (704). Last year, the junior game-breaker corralled 60 passes for 1,219 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 20.3 yards per catch. Among sophomores at Minnesota, he established school records for receiving yards and touchdowns, earning All-Big Ten First Team, Big Ten’s Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year and AP Third Team All-American. In two seasons, Bateman has caught at least one pass in all 26 games played and logged seven 100-yard receiving games.
Bateman attended Tift County High School in Tifton, Georgia. He set single-season school receiving records with 83 catches for 1,539 yards and 21 touchdowns. He also lettered in basketball and was a four-star recruit by 247Sports and Rivals.
At 6-foot-2 and 210 pounds, the junior has excellent hands and body control: He consistently makes one-handed grabs. He also employs quick feet and easily releases off the line of scrimmage. The junior effortlessly defeats man coverage and finds the holes in zones.
In CFF leagues, Batman is a top 12 pick overall and well worth the investment in the back half of the first round. I am racing down the track full steam ahead in 2020. Will you buy a ticket on the Bateman Express with me?
Rashod Bateman, a potential first-round NFL Draft pick, has decided to opt-out of the 2020 season.
Ja’Marr Chase, LSU
Ja’Marr Chase first blipped on my radar against Vanderbilt when I placed the LSU sophomore in my DFS lineup: He exploded for 10 catches for 229 yards and four touchdowns. I’m sure all college football diehards remember the CFP National Championship Game when he nabbed nine receptions for 221 yards and two touchdowns.
When the curtain closed on the 2019 campaign, Chase became the most decorated receiver in LSU history: Biletnikoff Award winner, Unanimous First Team All-American, and First Team All-SEC. The junior playmaker established SEC single-season records for receiving yards with 1,780 and receiving touchdowns with 20. Chase also topped 200 yards receiving in a game three times—the first player ever in Baton Rouge.
In high school, ESPN and Rivals rated Chase as a four-star recruit and one of the top-rated players in Louisiana. A track-and-field competitor, he won the 5A state title in the long jump as a junior.
A likely top-five NFL Draft pick in 2021, the Tigers’ star has mastered finding holes in zone coverages and siting in uncovered areas. At 6-foot-0 and 208 pounds, he owns stupendous hands and snatches the ball with ease. He also tracks the deep ball well and gains chunks of yards after the catch.
In Baton Rouge, the Tigers lost Offensive Coordinator Joe Brady (Carolina Panthers) and QB Joe Burrow (Cincinnati Bengals). While the offensive scheme remains the same, QB Myles Brennan replaces the Heisman winner behind center. Replicating last year’s out-of-this-world numbers is not very likely in 2020; nevertheless, Chase will be extraordinarily productive for CFF owners.
Sage Surratt, Wake Forest
Losing QB Jamie Newman, who transferred to Georgia, might appear to derail the Demon Deacons’ passing game from a layman’s perspective. However, coach Dave Clawson has assembled a good program at Wake Forest and the team will reload with QB Sam Hartman and an improved depth chart.
With Hartman calling signals, receiver Sage Surratt, who chose to remain on campus, will shine on Saturdays once again. Last year, the redshirt junior posted his first 1,000-yard campaign on 66 catches and scored 11 times in only nine games, suffering a knee injury against Virginia Tech in November. Surratt earned Third Team All-American by Athlon Sports, First Team All-ACC and All-ACC Academic Team.
PFF listed Surratt among its Top 25 prospects in next year’s NFL Draft. At 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds, the Demon Deacons’ playmaker is a physical and natural athlete who runs down the deep pass and effortlessly plucks the pigskin out of the air. A former basketball player, he boxes out defenders and creates space for the quarterback to put the ball in the basket. He wins at the catch point and welcomes contact in contested situations.
In June, Athlon Sports named Surratt to its preseason All-ACC Team. The Wake Forest home run hitter provides a great anchor at wide receiver for CFF managers in 2020.
DeVonta Smith, Alabama
The level of wide receiver talent coach Nick Saban has recruited over the past four seasons ranks second to none. Last year, I studied Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, III in detail for the NFL Draft, and both were selected in the first round. Amazingly, the Crimson Tide might have another first rounder next April on the roster in DeVonta Smith.
The speedy Senior led Alabama in receiving yards (1,256) and touchdowns (14) on 68 receptions, and he paced the club in yards per catch (18.5). He earned Second Team All-American and First Team All-SEC. Smith logged multiple 200-plus yard receiving games and tied for eighth nationally in yards.
A five-star recruit in high school, Smith selected Alabama over LSU, Miami (Fla.), Oklahoma and TCU. He was the No. 3 wideout and No. 25 overall prospect in the nation.
A lean frame at 6-foot-1 and 175 pounds, Smith is a shifty and elusive athlete who is a smooth and fluid route runner. He has outstanding body control and soft hands. He also employs a high level of concentration, wins contested battles and excels on quick screens and jet sweeps. Even with a change at quarterback, the Crimson Tide aerial assault will continue to fly high, and Smith is the jet engine of the passing game.
Rondale Moore, Purdue
During my 40 years watching college football, Rondale Moore (2018) and Michael Crabtree (2007) fashioned the all-time best seasons among freshmen receivers. In his first game in a Boilermaker uniform, Moore made an immediate impact with 11 receptions for 109 yards, 2 carries for 79 yards and two touchdowns against Northwestern.
In 2018, Moore tallied accolades that rival any player in college football: Paul Hornung Award, First Team All-American, First Team Freshman All-American, Big Ten Wide Receiver of the Year, and First Team All-Big Ten. He broke school records for most all-purpose yards (2,215), all-purpose yards in a game (313), and tied the program mark for most 100-yard receiving games. For the season, he registered 114 catches for 1,258 yards and 12 touchdowns and carried the pigskin 21 times for 213 yards and two touchdowns.
Unfortunately, Moore suffered a hamstring injury last September and never regained his game-breaking ability as a freshman. He only played in four games and recorded a modest 29 catches for 387 yards and two touchdowns.
In the spring, the junior Boilermaker returned to the practice field and proclaimed “I feel good. I’m at 100%.” More has labored to develop fresh moves and become more proficient as a route runner. Major media outlets have not forgotten about the explosive playmaker, and the Walter Camp Foundation named him a preseason All-American.
Rondale Moore, a potential first-round NFL Draft pick, has decided to opt-out of the 2020 season.
Marquez Stevenson, Houston
The Dana Holgorsen era did not get off to a memorable start as the Cougars posted a 4-8 record and QB D’Eriq King took a redshirt season after four games. Nevertheless, Marquez Stevenson overcame the challenges and led the team in every major receiving category.
After missing the entire 2017 crusade due to a season-ending ACL tear, the junior flourished in 2018 with 74 catches for 1,019 yards and nine touchdowns and also scored two touchdowns rushing. He was named to the First Team All-AAC, finishing second in the conference in receptions, third in touchdowns and fourth in yards. A big-play performer, Stevenson concluded the campaign sixth nationally with six plays over 50 yards and eleventh with 12 plays over 30 yards.
Last year, the speedster registered 52 catches for 907 yards and nine touchdowns, earning First Team All-AAC for the second consecutive season. He led the AAC and was second in the FBS with two kickoff returns. A home run hitter, he ranked second nationally with three catches over 70 yards.
At 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, the Senior excels at finding holes in the defense and tracks the pass deep down the field well. A speed demon, Stevenson was a track star in high school and logged 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash in 2018. His quickness off the snap creates immediate separation, and his long-speed propels him past defenders. I foresee another productive campaign for the Houston star in 2020.
Magna Cum Laude
Reggie Roberson, Jr., SMU
A three-star prospect coming out of Mesquite Horn High School in Texas, Reggie Roberson, Jr. enrolled at West Virginia in 2017. After one season on the Mountaineers’ campus, Roberson transferred to SMU and immediately impacted the Mustang’s passing game.
In 2018, Roberson finished second on the team with 52 receptions for 802 yards and six touchdowns. He played in 10 games, starting seven and returned five kicks, scoring once. He followed up the campaign with another productive one before being sidelined with an injury.
The SMU speedster snatched 43 passes for 803 yards and registered six touchdowns. In the win over Temple, he had a career-best 250 receiving yards and three touchdowns. After mulling over the temptation to enter the NFL Draft last December, the Senior posted on Twitter that he would remain on campus for another season. “I have decided to come back and play my senior year at SMU. There is a lot of unfinished business that I left on the field that I need to take care of next season.”
Before his injury, Roberson was averaging 100-plus receiving yards per game and the Mustangs were undefeated at 8-0. Without its explosive home run hitter, SMU lost three of the final five games. In the spring, Roberson returned to the field before the campus closed down during the quarantine and reports indicated he would be healthy for the upcoming season.
Tylan Wallace, Oklahoma State
Since Mike Gundy became the coach at Oklahoma State, the Cowboys have produced a long line of high-end college fantasy football receivers: Justin Blackmon (2009-11), Dez Bryant (2007-09), and James Washington (2014-17).
In 2020, Tylan Wallace has netted a spot among the most feared playmakers in college football—and Oklahoma State history—over the past two seasons. Among active FBS players, he ranks third with 2,512 receiving yards and second with 20 receiving touchdowns before kickoff in the fall.
In 2018, Tylan Wallace climbed the depth chart from the basement to the penthouse. He caught 86 passes for 1,491 and 12 touchdowns. A true deep threat, he led the nation with 63 receptions over 10 yards and tied for second with 25 catches over 20 yards. He also secured 66 first-down catches, which paced all players in the Power 5 conferences. Wallace was named All-American First Team by ESPN and The Sporting News and Biletnikoff Award finalist.
Last year, Wallace was named Second Team All-Big 12 and earned the OSU Thurman Thomas Award despite missing half of the conference games after tearing an ACL during practice in late October. The Oklahoma State wideout chronicled 53 receptions for 903 yards and eight touchdowns.
At 6-foot-0 and 185 pounds, Wallace is fast and physical with excellent body control. A long-ball sage, the junior tracks the ball well and secures it with vice-like mitts, winning disputed passes. If the Cowboys’ coach wants to register a fifteenth consecutive-winning season, he must get the ball into Wallace’s hands as often as possible in 2020.
Jonathan Adams, Jr., Arkansas State
Since Blake Anderson took over the Arkansas State program, the Red Wolves have produced one of the most prolific passing games in college football. Over the past two seasons, Arkansas State averaged 3,858 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes. Receivers Kirk Merritt and Omar Bayless became weekly CFF starters. Both left campus and Jonathan Adams slides into the alpha role for coach Anderson.
A two-star prospect in high school, Adams was a three-sport standout at Jonesboro High School in Arkansas. He played varsity basketball and earned all-state honors. As a senior, he led his team to a 32-0 record, a state championship and MVP in the Championship Game.
Adams also participated as a long and high jumper on the track team. “The best player that I’ve ever coached. I think he checks every box and his ceiling is higher than anyone I’ve ever had,” high school coach Randy Coleman stated in 2016.
Last year, the senior latched onto 62 passes for 851 yards and 5 touchdowns, while averaging 13.7 yards per catch. He was named Third Team All-Sun Belt. At 6-foot-3 and 209 pounds, Adams defeats defensive backs with ease and will establish career bests in every receiving category.
Dazz Newsome, North Carolina
Coach Mack Brown quickly turned the Tar Heels into a Top 20 offense. North Carolina ranked twelfth in Total Offense (474 yards per game) while scoring 33.1 points per game. The aerial assault is commanded by sensational sophomore QB Sam Howell. He throws to an elite duo of receivers with Dazz Newsome and Dyami Brown. The dynamic pair became the fourth and fifth wideouts in Tarheels’ history to record over 1,000 yards in the air.
Lining up in the slot, Newsome conquers opponents with speed and route running. PFF charted all of the junior’s receptions and every catch came from the slot. “Newsome has an innate ability to get open, unlike almost anyone at the position. He is adept at varying his speed throughout his routes, flashing sudden speed to get open for his quarterback. Newsome has plenty of wiggle in his game to make defenders miss and take it to the house,” said Chris Spooner of Pro Football Network on 247Sports.com.
In high school, Newsome was the No. 1 rated cornerback in Virginia by Scout.com. Yet, he played both sides of the ball and recognized as the Daily Press Offensive Player of the Year. He stared at running back and receiver on offense and cornerback and safety on the defensive side of the ball.
During the first two years on campus, Newsome caught 62 passes for 733 yards and two touchdowns. Last year, the junior erupted for 72 receptions for 1,018 yards and ten touchdowns, and 50 of his 72 catches produced a first down. He corralled Second Team All-ACC honors, leading the team in receptions.
At 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, Newsome is climbing NFL Draft prospect rankings and another productive campaign will enflame his draft stock. I expect another 1,000-yard crusade and double-digit touchdowns in the fall.
Tamorrion Terry, Florida State
When I watched Florida State last year, I concentrated on RB Cam Akers and the awful run blocking by the offensive line. Unfortunately, I did not spend enough time observing Tamorrion Terry. During the offseason, I have scouted Devy, CFF, and NFL Draft prospects, and Terry popped during my research…He is very good.
Despite lackluster quarterback play and a disappointing O-line, Terry snatched 60 passes for 1,188 yards and nine touchdowns, gaining 19.8 yards per catch. He averaged a whopping 57.9 yards per touchdown reception, scored from beyond 60 yards six times, and reached the end zone from 70-plus yards on three occasions. He was appointed to the Second Team All-ACC. In the bowl game against Arizona State, he broke a Sun Bowl record with a 91-yard touchdown reception.
In 2018, Terry averaged 21.3 yards per catch on 35 receptions, totaled 744 yards receiving and crossed the finish line eight times. He earned All-ACC honorable mention and the FSU’s Offensive MVP award.
A four-star recruit in high school, Terry redshirted in 2017 after a decorated career. He was named to the Atlanta Journal Constitution Class A Public All-State First Team in 2015 and 2016.
A physical competitor at 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, Terry is a long-strider with smooth athletic ability. He consistently wins contested battles and easily high-points the ball with big and soft hands. Terry also accumulated many yards after the catch with natural elusiveness, acceleration and footwork. While I prefer to invest in wide receivers in high-flying passing games with a top-level quarterback, I will make an exception for the Seminoles’ star.
Tutu Atwell, Louisville
Coach Scott Satterfield transferred from Appalachian State to Louisville last year. He immediately turned the program into a winner (8-5) behind an electric offense that manufactured 447.3 yards and 33.1 points per game. Satterfield’s unit is led by a tremendous trio of playmakers: QB Micale Cunningham, RB Javian Hawkins and WR Tutu Atwell.
As a sophomore, Atwell led the ACC in receiving yards with 1,276 and touchdowns with 12. He established a Louisville record for receiving yards and tied the program mark for touchdowns. The Cardinals’ playmaker averaged 18.2 yards per catch and earned First Team All-ACC for his performance.
In high school, Atwell was a dual-threat quarterback who passed for over 4,000 and rushed for over 1,500 yards at Miami Northwestern High. The Miami, Florida native started for four years and recipient of the Miami-Dade County Player of the Year in 2017. His father, Chatarius Atwell, played wideout at Minnesota.
Unfortunately, schools did not recruit Atwell to play quarterback in college because of his slight build. At Louisville, he transitioned to wideout. At 5-foot-9 and 165 pounds, Atwell has great athleticism and elite speed. He has been clocked at 4.27 seconds in the 40-yard dash. The junior expects to be even better in 2020. “I think I can be the most dynamic college receiver. I just feel like I can do big things,” Atwell Jr. stated on 247Sports.com.
Amon-Ra St. Brown, USC
I drafted Amon-Ra St. Brown in a CFF Dynasty league three summers ago and have closely watched his ascension among the elite in college football. In two seasons, the junior has logged 137 receptions for 1,792 yards and nine touchdowns. In 2019, he was named All-Pac-12 honorable mention squad, Phil Steele’s Second Team All-Pac-12, and collected USC’s Trojan Way Leadership Award. Offensive Coordinator Graham Harrell loves to attack opponents in the air, and the aerial assault is locked and loaded with QB Kedon Slovis and a trio of receivers led by St. Brown. The junior establishes career bests in every receiving statistical category and leads CFF owners into the postseason.
Tre Walker, San Jose State
With the addition of transfer quarterback Nick Starkel, the Spartans’ passing game will surely be more productive in 2020. Tre Walker will be even better than last year when he caught 79 passes for 1,161 yards and two touchdowns in only 10 games. He was named First Team All-Mountain West and logged six games with at least 100 receiving yards. The 5-foot-11 and 180-pound senior should be more industrious in the red zone and easily triple his two touchdowns last season.
C.J. Johnson, East Carolina
On November 23 last year, I had the pleasure of watching C.J. Johnson play UConn at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT. Against SMU the week before, the Pirates’ freshman had left the game early with an injury. All week before kickoff, I hoped that Johnson would play, and luckily, he did, corralling four passes for 84 yards. As a true freshman, he led ECU with a freshman school-record 908 receiving yards on 54 catches and four touchdown grabs. In 2020, Athlon Sports named Johnson preseason Second-Team All-AAC. He should easily exceed 1,000 yards and score more than eight touchdowns.
Damonte Coxie, Memphis
Despite the coaching change at Memphis, the Tigers’ offense will again post prolific numbers. Damonte Coxie is one of the key components of the aerial assault. Over the past two seasons, the redshirt senior has recorded 148 passes for 2,450 yards and 16 touchdowns. At 6-foot-3 and 197 pounds, Coxie relishes competing for the football and dominates smaller defensive backs. His competitive toughness shows up in one-on-one battles, consistently winning. A great second wide out on CFF rosters in 2020.
Jaylen Waddle, Alabama
It is still shocking examining the extraordinary talent among wide receivers in the Alabama locker room over the past three seasons. In high school, Jaylen Waddle was ranked as a Top-10 recruit in Texas and four-star receiver. As a freshman, he immediately made an impact on special teams and named SEC Freshman of the Year honoree by the coaches. Last year, Waddle was recognized as the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year and a First Team selection as a return specialist. In two seasons, the junior has caught 78 passes for 1,480 yards and 14 touchdowns. With Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs, III moving on to the NFL, Waddle will surely receive a significant uptick in snaps and targets in 2020.
Dyami Brown, North Carolina
I put a microscope on Dyami Brown after he scored in the first two games of the 2019 season. In week three, North Carolina traveled to Wake Forest, and I placed Brown into my CFF lineups. He snatched three passes for 84 yards, including a 17-yard touchdown pass. For the remainder of the season, the Tarheels’ home run hitter became a viable weekly starter. He earned Third Team All-ACC after corralling 51 passes for 1,034 yards and 12 touchdowns. North Carolina has a terrific passing game with Howell, Newsome and Brown. I want a piece of the action in 2020.
Frank Darby, Arizona State
I have preached investing in systems and schemes in college fantasy football. One of the paramount assets to speculate on is the X-receiver at Arizona State. Over the past two seasons, both N’Keal Harry and Brandon Aiyuk, who combined for 138 catches for 2,280 yards and 17 touchdowns, became CFF starters and first-round NFL Draft picks. In 2020, Frank Darby steps into the coveted position in the Sun Devils’ offense. Last year, the senior scored eight times on 31 receptions and averaged 19.9 yards per catch. I expect a major uptick in targets, catches and yards in the upcoming campaign.
Tyler Vaughns, USC
The Trojans retained coach Clay Helton after he guided the team to victory in five of its last six games, including cross-town rival UCLA. In five seasons, Helton has posted a 40-22 record. If the Coach wants to remain in the City of Angels at USC, he must get the ball into his playmakers’ hands, and Tyler Vaughns is a preseason All-PAC-12 honoree by Streets & Smith’s College Football magazine. The redshirt senior has amassed 189 receptions for 2,395 yards and 17 touchdowns in three seasons and named to Phil Steele’s Third Team All-Pac-12 last year. At 6-foot-2 and 190 pounds, Vaughn is a tremendous route runner, who employs elite start-and-stop skills and astounding athleticism to get open.
Chris Olave, Ohio State
Ohio State QB Justin Fields is the consensus top CFF signal-caller. Why are so many CFF diehards bypassing Fields’ proffered playmaker? A true sophomore last year, Chris Olave paced the Buckeyes in yards (849), yards per catch (17.3), and touchdown catches (12) on 48 receptions. He was recognized for his efforts on the Third Team All-Big Ten. In high school, the junior receiver netted a four-star grade by 247sports and played basketball and ran track. Olave is one of the underpriced CFF wideouts in early drafts.
Wan’Dale Robinson, Nebraska
After leading UCF to a 13-0 record, coach Scott Frost moved north to coach his alma mater. Unfortunately, he has not produced a winning record (9-15 overall) in two campaigns at Nebraska. A four-star recruit in high school, Wan’Dale Robinson secured Kentucky’s Mr. Football and Gatorade Kentucky Player of the Year. As a freshman, Robinson was named Second Team Freshman All-American, honorable mention All-Big Ten and Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll (2019). He set two program records for a true freshman: season receptions (40) and receiving yards (443). He also rushed for 340 yards and scored five touchdowns. At 5-foot-10 and 190 pounds, Robinson is a thrilling playmaker with the ball in his hands.
George Pickens, Georgia
It has been a long time since Georgia rostered a wide receiver as talented as Georgia Pickens. A five-star recruit in high school, he was graded in the nation as the No. 24 overall, No. 4 wide receiver and No. 1 prospect in Alabama. Pickens did not disappoint as a freshman, logging 49 catches for 727 yards and eight touchdowns which led the team. He was the Sugar Bowl MVP with a school-bowl record 12 catches for 175 yards and a touchdown. The rising star earned Freshman All-SEC Team and Newcomer of the Year. Despite the hiring of new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, I am not paying the price tag for Pickens in coach Kirby Smart’s historically ground-and-pound offensive scheme
Terrace Marshall, Jr., LSU
Arguably, the 2019 Tigers’ offense is the greatest in the storied history of college football. Heisman winner QB Joe Burrow tossed 60 touchdowns and receivers Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson combined for 38 touchdowns on 195 catches. Jefferson has taken his talents to the NFL, and Terrance Marshall, Jr. ascends to second in the pecking order. Last year, the junior started 11 games, missed three and recorded 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns. At 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds, Marshall is scheduled for a much bigger work load in 2020 with a tremendous ceiling.
