Tanner Morgan
2020 Fantasy Outlook
The extent of Morgan’s success under center during the 2020 season came as a shock to the system to most. While he showed some glimpses of ability as a freshman, Morgan made a huge leap in 2020, compiling 3,253 passing yards and a 30:7 TD:INT ratio on 66.0 completion percentage. It certainly helped Morgan to have two NFL-caliber wide receivers in Tyler Johnson and Rashod Bateman at his disposal, but Bateman returns for another year in 2020 and Chris Autman-Bell showed some promise when given an opportunity. Morgan finished last season tied for 14th nationally in touchdown passes and fourth in quarterback rating (178.70) while joining a group of just four quarterbacks to average more than 10 yards per attempt. While Johnson’s departure certainly stings, Morgan should be positioned for another strong campaign. Read Past Outlooks
Strong showing to cap 2019
January 2, 2020
Morgan racked up 278 passing yards and posted a 2:1 TD:INT ratio on 19-for-29 passing in Wednesday's Outback Bowl versus Auburn.
ANALYSIS
After completing just 54 percent of his passes against Wisconsin in the regular-season finale, Morgan was on the mark again Tuesday, completing 66 percent of his attempts. He finished his redshirt sophomore season with 3,253 passing yards and a 30:7 TD:INT ratio on a 66 percent completion percentage, a massive improvement on his 2018 campaign. While Tyler Johnson will head to the NFL, Morgan will still have another NFL-ready wideout at his disposal in Rashod Bateman back for the 2020 season as the Gophers look to build on a successful conclusion.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
After committing to the Gophers prior to 2017, Morgan spent a redshirt to preserve his four years of eligibility with Conor Rhoda and Demry Croft seemingly vying for the starting job. Neither of the quarterbacks remains on the roster heading into 2018 and JUCO transfer Vic Viramontes left the program following spring practice, leaving Morgan and Zack Annexstad to battle for starting honors. Tyler Johnson returns in the Gophers' receiving corps, providing a pair of reliable hands if Morgan can sling it around with some consistency.
