David Blough
Purdue Boilermakers
2018 Fantasy Outlook
After starting the majority of games his first two seasons in West Lafayette with mixed results, Blough wound up splitting time under center with sophomore Elijah Sindelar in 2017 due to a mix of injuries and good play from the two signal-callers. In his limited time, Blough posted a career-best 65.0 completion percentage and 7.03 yards per attempt. Sindelar missed spring practice after undergoing ACL surgery in December, allowing Blough to get increased reps during the session, but the two are expected to compete again in fall camp. It wouldn't be surprising if second-year coach Jeff Brohm employs the committee approach under center again in 2018, potentially limiting Blough's upside. Read Past Outlooks
Poor showing to close career
January 1, 2019
Blough completed 22 of his 37 pass attempts for 184 yards and two interceptions during the Music City Bowl against Auburn.
Blough performed well during most of the 2018 season, including posting seven games with more than 300 yards passing. While it's certainly not the way he wanted to go out, the senior finished his 2018 campaign with a 25:10 TD:INT ratio and a 66 completion percentage for 3,705 passing yards. He will now set his sights on a potential run at sneaking his way into the NFL draft.

2016 Fantasy Outlook
Blough began the year behind junior Austin Appleby, but persistent struggles from Appleby resulted in head coach Darrell Hazell changing horses in late September. Aside from a strong (29-39, 340, 2,1) outing against Bowling Green, Blough struggled to figure out Big 10 defenses. He completed just 55.7 percent of his passes in conference games for 1,223 yards, eight scores, and seven picks. On the bright side, Blough can move a decent bit, even if his total rushing yardage output doesn’t reflect it due to yardage subtracted by sacks. Furthermore, he averaged 35.1 passing attempts per game in conference play last season, and given that Purdue will likely be trailing a lot of the time against Big 10 competition, we could see some gaudy passing numbers purely thanks to volume.
