2020 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Jake Bentley in 2020. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
Will be healthy for spring
January 30, 2020
Bentley (foot) said he'll be 100 percent healthy when Utah resumes practicing in the spring, Christopher Kamrani of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
As a senior at South Carolina in 2019, Bentley suffered a Lisfranc foot fracture in the Gamecocks' Week 1 loss to North Carolina, an injury that required season-ending surgery. With true freshman Ryan Hilinski stepping in as the Gamecocks' starting quarterback in his stead and viewed as the future of that program, Bentley -- who took a redshirt last season -- elected to move on from Columbia for his fifth year of college ball. He'll be eligible immediately at Utah as a graduate transfer in 2020 and should be a full participant throughout the spring, though Bentley will require 4-to-6 weeks of recovery time when he has the screws removed in his surgically repaired foot after the Utes' spring game. By the time fall camp opens, Bentley should again be back to full health. He should be viewed as the favorite to claim the starting job for the Utes with incumbent Tyler Huntley exhausting his eligibility.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2019
Bentley showed improvement during his first full year under center for South Carolina, passing for 2,794 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for six scores. His ball security will be something to watch in 2018 after throwing 12 picks a season ago. Bentley will have three of his top wideouts back for the 2018 campaign, with Bryan Edwards, Deebo Samuel and Shi Smith all figuring to serve as key cogs in the offense through the air. Samuel, who missed the bulk of 2017 with a leg injury, will add a dynamic component to Bentley's arsenal. Bentley has potential for a stellar season as part of a pass-heavy system (51.91 pass play percentage, 36th in FBS).
Bentley decided to return for his senior season at South Carolina despite putting up career numbers in 2018. He passed for 3,171 yards and 27 touchdowns, placing him fourth in the SEC in both categories. He did lose leading receiver Deebo Samuel to the NFL, but Bryan Edwards and Shi Smith should be more than capable at wideout. The Gamecocks have an extremely difficult schedule which includes matchups with Clemson, Alabama and Georgia, though Bentley did toss five touchdowns against the defending champion Tigers last season. The schedule still won't do him any favors, but Bentley's ceiling is 3,500 yards and 30 touchdowns.
