Holton Ahlers
QuarterbackQB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Ahlers took major strides in his second year as a starter, as he improved from completing 48.3 percent of his passes to 59.7. Although, he also was a little more reckless with the ball, as he went from throwing only three interceptions to throwing 10. Granted, he also improved from 12 passing touchdowns to 21, and he added six more on the ground. All in all, we’ll call that an improvement. When you see Ahlers operating at his peak, like when he threw for 498 yards and six touchdowns on the road against SMU, it’s hard not to be excited about the potential in Ahlers’ arm heading into 2020.

Continues to air it out in victory
November 24, 2019
Ahlers went 34-for-50 with 374 yards, one touchdown and two picks while rushing six times for 22 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 31-24 win over UConn.
ANALYSIS
Ahlers attempted over 40 passes for the third straight game after never doing so in the first eight contests, but Saturday was his least productive outing of the three. He only had one pick across the other two contests and had at least 490 passing yards in each, making his 374 a disappointing amount despite still being his third-most of the season. With the Pirates already eliminated from a bowl game, Ahlers will play his final game of the season next week against Tulsa.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Ahlers is the “You Don’t Want To See How The Sausage Gets Made” fantasy asset. During his stretch as the starter last season, he averaged the fifth-most fantasy points. That was despite posting a 50.6 completion rate and a 6.9 YPA. Rushing ability helped, but the major factor was volume as he averaged 46.2 passes per game. A red flag comes in the form of a new coaching staff that ran 68.4 plays per game last season. For a player as reliant on volume as Ahlers, an extreme play count reduction could expose his flaws and crater his value.
