2019 Fantasy Outlook
On a per-game basis, no quarterback was more prolific than King in 2018. Not Kyler Murray, not Dwayne Haskins, not Tua Tagovailoa. King is the total package. A converted receiver, King uses his athleticism as a devastating rusher, as evidenced by his 674 yards and 14 scores on the ground. But he’s also polished as a passer (36:6 TD:INT) and his passing could reach a new level with Dana Holgorsen installing his spread offense. King has all the physical tools, along with the system and supporting cast, to repeat as college fantasy’s top asset. Read Past Outlooks

Reports came out shortly after his redshirt was announced that he would be leaving Houston, but additiional reports indicated he planned to remain with the team for 2020. King will instead consider his options and figures to garner significant interest in the transfer portal.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
King followed the Greg Ward blueprint of starting out at receiver for the Cougs only to supplant a high recruit at quarterback. And, like Ward, King proved to be a natural. He took over in October and completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,238 yards, six TDs and two picks. King also proved to be a rushing threat with a nose for the end zone, racking up eight rushing touchdowns. King won't have his top wideouts from last season, but he's more experienced and will be the do-it-all threat in Houston's offense.
