Shane Buechele
QuarterbackQB
SMU Mustangs
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Buechele lost on on the quarterback battle last year in Texas to Sam Ehlinger, so he decided to take his talents elsewhere and stayed in-state with SMU. It's clear to see why he was once the front runner with the Longhorns, completing over 60 percent of his passes in his first season with 21 touchdowns and 246.5 yards per game back in 2016. But his sophomore season saw a decline in production, which lead to his ultimate benching. With a fresh start in a new system that should offer plenty of opportunity in an Air Raid offense, Buechele has a chance to capitalize on the promise that he showed so long ago. Read Past Outlooks
Shatters career-highs in win
QBSMU
October 20, 2019
Buechele threw for 457 yards and six touchdowns on 30-for-53 passing in Saturday's win over Temple.
ANALYSIS
Although Buechele had led SMU to an undefeated recorded, he was on a five-game streak of less than 300 yards passing coming into Saturday's contest with the Owls. Instead of continuing those struggles, the Texas transfer responded with career-highs in both yards and touchdowns, recording his first career 400-yard game while surpassing his previous record of four scores that he recorded in 2016 against UTEP. He'll now have a short week to prepare for Thursday's trip to Houston.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
It's a lot to ask of a true freshman to run a Baylor-style spread, but Buechele proved promising despite the overwhelming nature of the task. He overcame a weak group of receivers and a rotation with running-specialist QB Tyrone Swoopes to throw for 2,958 yards (7.6 YPA), 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. And now he gets to operate under the tutelage of coach Tom Herman, who made a buzzsaw out of the Houston offenses in recent years, propelling quarterback Greg Ward into stardom. Swoopes' exit assures a bigger rushing workload for Buechele, too.
