Martinez announced Thursday via his personal Twitter account that he has committed to Kansas State, joining the program as a transfer from Nebraska.
ANALYSIS
Martinez will head to the Big 12 after spending the last four years as the Cornhuskers' starting quarterback. He accounted for 10,783 total yards of offense and 80 touchdowns over his career but Martinez's ample production didn't translate to many wins for Nebraska. He'll head to Kansas State for one final ride as he hopes to help the Wildcats become more competitive after having a sub-.500 record in conference play in 2021. Martinez won't be eligible to compete in Kansas State's upcoming Texas Bowl matchup with LSU in January, but he'll be the odds-on favorite to open 2022 as the team's starter, provided he makes a complete recovery from the left shoulder surgery he underwent in late November.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2019
2020
Martinez enrolled early to get a jump start in spring and it paid off in a big way. As the only Scott Frost recruit under center, Martinez compiled an impressive showing in the spring game to the tune of 14 carries for 60 yards and three touchdowns and 10-for-13 passing for 114 yards and another score. Patrick O'Brien transferred following the session, clearing one of the hurdles between Martinez and the starting job. He enters fall camp in competition with just Tristan Gebbia to lock down the gig, but his spring effort, combined with his ideal skill set for Frost's offense, puts the freshman in a good position to potentially start in Lincoln right off the bat. A talented group of pass catchers, including Stanley Morgan and JD Spielman could yield immediate fantasy viability for Martinez should he earn the starting nod.
Martinez’s blend of accuracy and athleticism makes him a perfect fit for Scott Frost’s high-powered system that emphasizes quick passing and also works at its best when the quarterback poses a rushing threat. He got off to a rocky start in 2018 but once he settled in, Martinez averaged 30.1 fantasy points over his final six games, accounting for 16 total touchdowns in that span. There’s reason to believe he can parlay his strong finish into a full year of elite production as he further masters the offense and strengthens his rapport with his skill position players.
Martinez didn’t experience the breakout campaign many were expecting with new coach Scott Frost at the helm in 2019. While some of that could be attributed to Martinez battling a nagging knee issue, it’s worth noting that Martinez’s rushing numbers (144 carries for 636 yards and seven touchdowns) were essentially on par with what he recorded as a freshman. Where Martinez struggled most was in the passing game, finishing the season with just a 59.4 completion percentage and a 10:9 TD:INT ratio to go along with 7.8 passing yards per attempt. A second offseason in the Frost system should pay dividends, though it’s worth noting top target JD Spielman has opted to transfer elsewhere for his final season. Wan’Dale Robinson seems the likely candidate to hold that mantle in 2020 after hauling in 40 passes for 453 yards and two scores last year. Jack Stoll should also supply a reliable option at tight end.
