Jamie Newman
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Newman is a graduate transfer from Wake Forest with the inside track at the starting quarterback job for the Bulldogs. USC transfer JT Daniels should also figure into the mix, though, as will redshirt junior Stetson Bennett. Newman had a standout campaign for the Demon Deacons in 2019, completing over 60-percent of his passes for 2,868 yards and 26 touchdowns. He also flashed his dual-threat ability, rushing for 574 yards and six more scores. His ability to run the football should give the Bulldogs offense more variety as compared to Jake Fromm, though certainly Newman is not as polished of a passer. However, behind a better offensive line, Newman can still be one of the better passers in the SEC this season. Read Past Outlooks
Opting out of 2020 season
Not Injury Related
September 2, 2020
Newman informed Georgia on Wednesday that he has decided to opt out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns, Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
After leaving Wake Forest as a graduate transfer earlier in the offseason, Newman was one of the most prized players on the market before he committed to Georgia in January. Coming off a redshirt junior season with the Demon Deacons in which he accounted for 32 touchdowns while throwing for 2,868 yards and rushing for 574 more, Newman was expected to start for Georgia and remain one of the top fantasy quarterbacks in the FBS, but he'll instead elect to begin prepping for the 2021 NFL Draft rather than playing out his final year of eligibility during a pandemic. Newman's departure leaves USC transfer JT Daniels (knee) in the driver's seat to start for Georgia, assuming he can gain medical clearance form last fall's ACL tear ahead of the Bulldogs' Sept. 26 opener versus East Tennessee State. D'Wan Mathis and Stetson Bennett are the next men up if Daniels isn't ready to go for the start of the season.
