Jack Coan
2020 Fantasy Outlook
While Coan’s 2019 pick didn’t sport the pizzazz that makes him valuable in the fantasy realm, he was a consistent presence under center en route to an 18:5 TD:INT ratio over his 14 games quarterbacking the offense. Coan’s 69.6 completion percentage ranked seventh in tin the country and his 151.76 quarterback rating slotted him 19th nationally. While that all looks great, Coan tossed more than two touchdown passes in a game just once all season (Week 2 versus Central Michigan) and could still face some competition for the starting job in camp in the form of Graham Mertz.It’s worth noting that Coan also really struggled in most games of note, sporting sub-7.0 yards per attempt in four of his six games versus ranked teams. Even with Jonathan Taylor gone, it’s tough to see Coan as anything more than a game-manager. Read Past Outlooks
Joining Notre Dame
Not Injury Related
January 4, 2021
Coan committed Monday to Notre Dame, joining the Fighting Irish as a graduate transfer from Wisconsin, Mike Singer of Rivals.com reports.
ANALYSIS
One of the most experienced quarterbacks on the transfer market, Coan found a new landing spot just two weeks after announcing his departure from Wisconsin. Coan seized Wisconsin's starting job late in 2018 as a redshirt freshman and took a major leap forward while playing on a full-time basis in 2019, completing 69.6 percent of his throws for 8.0 yards per attempt and an 18:5 TD:INT to go with four scores on the ground. He was poised to open his redshirt junior season this fall as Wisconsin's starter, but he ended up losing the job to Graham Mertz after suffering a preseason foot injury that required surgery. Coan was cleared to play late in the regular season, but Wisconsin elected to stick with Mertz as its starter, prompting the former to explore his options elsewhere. He'll be able to compete right away at Notre Dame while retaining two years of eligibility, and Coan should become the frontrunner to replace incumbent Ian Book, who is expected to move on to the NFL rather than returning to the Fighting Irish for a sixth year. Coan should face competition from sophomore Drew Pyne and junior Brendon Clark during spring and fall camps.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Coan's first significant action under center came and went in 2018 without much to take away from it. He started the season as the understudy to Alex Hornibrook, but a head injury sidelined Hornibrook for a number of games and moved Coan into the spotlight. He finished the season having completed 56 of his 93 pass attempts (60.2 completion percentage) for 515 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. Hornibrook transferred to Florida State this offseason, leaving Coan to compete with highly touted freshman signal-caller Graham Mertz. The two figure to duke it out in camp before a call on the starter is made. Even if Coan snags the gig, his performance last season doesn't lend itself to promising fantasy prospects in 2019.
