2019 Fantasy Outlook
An ankle injury slowed Dillon from the fifth game onward last year, causing heavy regression from the high bar Dillon set as a true freshman in 2017. Dillon stampeded his way to 1,589 yards and 14 touchdowns that year, but through his ankle issue he could only muster 1,108 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2018. He does little as a receiver but Dillon is imposing when healthy, as at a listed 6-feet, 245 pounds he shows the explosiveness and balance of a runner 30 pounds lighter. He isn't as bulky as his weight implies, and he therefore sacrifices surprisingly little quickness for the immense strength he otherwise shows. Read Past Outlooks
Bowl game cancelled
RBBoston College
December 26, 2018
Dillon's bowl game against Boise State has been cancelled due to severe weather in the area and will be recorded as a no contest.
ANALYSIS
A lightning delay with no end in sight ultimately caused the ServPro First Responder Bowl to be canceled. The stats recorded during the game will not count, meaning that Dillon ends his season with 227 carries for 1,108 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Boston College is a run-first program, but the Eagles don't always have a running back with Dillon's talent. Dillon went from being an under the radar recruit to the ACC's most productive running back in a span of months, rushing for 1,589 yards and 14 TDs. An absolute unit at 6-foot, 240, Dillon is too difficult for most defenders one-on-one and he has just enough long speed to rip off big runs once he gets to the open field. He'll push for 300 carries once again, and that level of volume for a player of Dillon's skill level makes him a premium asset in 2018.
