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
First multi-TD game of 2020 ends in loss
December 22, 2020
Morgan completed 13 of his 25 pass attempts for 160 yards, a pair of touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's game versus Wisconsin.
ANALYSIS
Morgan finished with a season-low passing total and his second-worst completion percentage on the season, but he did manage to connect for multiple passing touchdowns for the first time all season. Morgan closes out 2020 with a steep drop off from expectations, completing just 57.9 percent of his passes for 1,389 yards and a 7:5 TD:INT ratio over seven games. He should return under center in 2021 but faces the prospects of no star wideout in Rashod Bateman to turn to in the passing attack.

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.
