2019 Fantasy Outlook
Okwuegbunam's game is every bit as imposing as his name, and he heads into 2019 as a candidate to emerge as the nation's top tight end. A shoulder injury that ended his season at nine games last year should be a non-issue by the time fall camp arrives, in which case Missouri will again lean heavily on Okwuegbunam after throwing 59 targets to him in nine games last year, which he turned into 43 receptions for 466 yards and six touchdowns. Okwuegbunam totaled an absurd 29 receptions for 415 yards and 11 touchdowns on 37 targets the prior year, his redshirt freshman season. Read Past Outlooks
Sitting out spring game

Shoulder
April 11, 2019
Okuegbunam (shoulder) will not take part in Saturday's spring game, Dave Matter of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
ANALYSIS
As should be expected following news that he would be limited in spring, Okwuegbunam will wait until fall to get back into the full swing of things. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, the junior tight end should retake his place atop the depth chart after hauling in 43 passes for 466 yards and three scores last season. The departure of Drew Lock could lower Okwuegbunam's fantasy ceiling a bit, but it's also worth noting he dressed for just nine games.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Did you pick Okwuegbunam to lead the SEC in touchdowns last year? If you did, please don't take my job. But seriously, the 6-5 freshman tight end was a revelation in 2017, turning 37 targets into 29 grabs for 415 yards and 11 touchdowns. In an age where tight end production is becoming increasingly harder to come by, Okwuegbunam is an extremely valuable asset and Missouri's switch to a pro-style system could make him even more of a focal point in the offense this year.
