Ben Hicks
QuarterbackQB
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Hick is a graduate transfer from SMU who will get to reunite with the coach that recruited him to the Mustangs, Chad Morris, who is now in charge of the Razorbacks. Hicks brings a wealth of experience to a quarterback position that was downright dreadful for the Hogs in 2018. Hicks has thrown for at least 2,500 yards and 19 touchdowns in each of the past three seasons with the Mustangs. Another transfer, Nick Starkel, could also see some reps, but the odds are that Hicks will be the starter when the 2019 campaign begins. Read Past Outlooks
Removed from two-deep
November 4, 2019
Hicks isn't listed on Arkansas' two-deep depth chart ahead of Saturday's game against Western Kentucky, Thomas Murphy of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports.
ANALYSIS
After drawing the start in Saturday's 54-24 loss to Mississippi State, Hicks now finds himself no better than third on the depth chart as the 2-7 Razorbacks turn their focus to developing younger options under center. To that end, redshirt freshman John Stephen Jones and true freshman K.J. Jefferson now occupy the first and second spots, leaving graduate transfers Hicks and Nick Starkel to merely serve as depth options as Arkansas plays out the string. Hicks' reunion with former SMU coach Chad Morris in Arkansas hasn't proven effective, as the signal-caller has only completed 48.5 percent of his passes for 5.6 yards per attempt, two touchdowns and two interceptions in six games.

FanDuel College Football: Week 10 Picks
November 2, 2018
Chris Benzine expects inexpensive SMU QB Ben Hicks, who’s coming off a pair of strong performances, to throw for another 300 yards against Houston.
2018 Fantasy Outlook
During his second year in SMU's pass-first offense, Hicks threw for 3,569 yards along with 33 touchdowns to 12 picks, completing passes at 58.5 percent. He broke out for monster games against North Texas (312 yards and four touchdowns) and Navy (261 yards and four touchdowns), although he'll need to take better care of the football in 2018. Hicks will have to work with a new group of wideouts, after losing his top two options in Courtland Sutton and Trey Quinn: James Proche figures to step in as the No. 1 target, with C.J. Sanders and Brandon Benson to follow, respectively. Hicks has already heaped praise on the new Air Raid system implemented by coach Sonny Dykes, noting that high percentage throws are a bigger staple of the offense. With that, Hicks' efficiency could see an uptick and the tempo/volume combo will still be enough for him to post gaudy numbers.
