Tight EndTE
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.

Corrals four passes in Rose Bowl
January 2, 2020
Ferguson racked up four catches for 44 yards on five targets in Wednesday's Rose Bowl versus Oregon.
ANALYSIS
Ferguson's production waned in a major way down the stretch, notching no more than two catches in any of the six games prior to his Rose Bowl effort. Despite a promising freshman campaign in 2018, Ferguson was unable to take a step forward in 2019, seeing dips in receptions (33), receiving yards (407) and receiving touchdowns (two). With Jonathan Taylor likely headed for the NFL, there's a chance the Wisconsin offense will feature a bit more balance in 2020, which could align Ferguson for a breakout campaign.

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.
