2020 Fantasy Outlook
While Ferguson’s sophomore season was fine, it clearly wasn’t the leap he was hoping for, and his 33 grabs for 407 yards and two touchdowns actually represented a statistical step back from his freshman numbers. With Jack Coan slated to return under center -- assuming he doesn’t get unseated by Graham Mertz -- Ferguson will have another offseason to develop a connection with his signal-caller. Ferguson’s missing target share (down from 55 targets to 43 last season) went to Quintez Cephus, who opted to turn pro following 2019. With Cephus gone, move the junior tight end toward the top of the heap for targets again in 2020 and could position him for a breakout season and potentially a look at leaving early for the NFL himself.

Returning to school
January 2, 2021
Ferguson announced Saturday via his personal Twitter account he will return to Wisconsin for a fifth season in 2021.
ANALYSIS
Ferguson took a leap in production as a redshirt junior in 2020, catching 30 balls for 305 yards and four touchdowns in Wisconsin's seven games. If not for the abbreviated season, Ferguson likely would have blown past his catch and yardage totals from both 2018 and 2019. He'll look to use a full slate of games next season to further improve his stock for the 2022 NFL Draft.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wisconsin always skews toward the run, and with good reason. But when the Badgers go to the air, tight ends are often involved, and Ferguson is more than just a safety valve. He was second on the team in receptions (36), receiving yards (456) and touchdowns (4) while averaging a strong 8.5 YPT, which ranked 11th among tight ends with at least 50 targets. Wisconsin’s other top pass catchers will be back this year as well, but it’s clear that Ferguson will be a staple in this passing game once again in 2019.
