2020 Fantasy Outlook
Assuming King can hold up physically and mentally to the increased weekly competition at a Power 5 school, something he's done in small sample sizes previously, he looks poised to have a huge campaign for the Hurricanes. King's rushing ability makes him a high-end option in all fantasy formats, having rushed for 28 scores over the past three seasons, including six in just four games in 2019 before injury and redshirting. He comes in experienced in a spread offense, which the Hurricanes will transition too under new offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee, formerly at SMU where he made Shane Buechele a fantasy commodity. Don't let Miami's lack of receiving stats fool you on the talent King has at his disposal, the Hurricanes are still loaded with speed and size at all skill positions, those players just havent been put in a position to succeed. Offensive line concerns are valid, and King may not have the nuances of Lashlee's system down immediately with no spring, so it could take a while to get going. But once everyone is on the same page, this offense is poised to pop on a weekly basis. Read Past Outlooks
Remains on track for August return
Knee
March 12, 2021
Head coach Manny Diaz updated reporters Friday and said that King (knee) has made great strides in his recovery from a torn ACL and expects him to start throwing sometime this summer, Susan Miller Degnan of the Miami Herald reports.
ANALYSIS
King suffered an unfortunate torn ACL in the Cheez-It Bowl game against Oklahoma State on Dec. 29, just days after he announced he'd be returning to the Hurricanes for another season. The senior quarterback has been checking all the boxes in his recovery and remains on line to return for fall camp in August.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2019
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.
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.
