McDonald’s splits between the first and second halves of 2018 are stark; through the first six games, he was third in fantasy points per game (39.3) on the strength of 24 touchdowns and 2,100 yards in six games. An injury kept him out against Wyoming and he wasn’t the same thereafter, averaging just 25.8 FPPG and throwing just 11 scores. The difference in splits make Is fair to wonder whether his decline was injury related or whether his hot start was attributable to a weak schedule. McDonald is a polarizing entity with legitimate arguments for and against him as a top-20 quarterback. Read Past Outlooks
