Brock Purdy
QuarterbackQB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Purdy is developing into an elite quarterback prospect after ranking fifth in the nation in 2019 with 3,982 passing yards and leading the Big 12 with 306.3 passing yards per game in an offense that's not historically racked up passing statistics. This is evident from the 21 school records that Purdy has established in his two astonishing years with the Cyclones. Iowa State returns just five offensive starters, but luckily for Purdy, one of those is running back Breece Hall who was an active part of the passing game with 28 targets in his eight games of action last season. He'll also benefit from the return of security blanket Charlier Kolar, one of the top tight ends in college football. Expect Purdy to be one of the best quarterbacks in the conference as he further builds his resume for the NFL. Read Past Outlooks
Announces return after Fiesta Bowl
January 3, 2021
Purdy completed 20 of 29 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. He also had nine rush attempts for 39 yards and a score in Saturday's 34-17 win over Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. He also announced after the game that he will be returning to play at Iowa State next season, Max Olson of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The win was sweet but Purdy's decision to come back for his senior year in 2021 was even sweeter for the Cyclones and their fans. The team will be getting back their two best offensive players in Brock Purdy and Breece Hall and still have a chance to reunite with All-American tight end, Charlie Kolar, who is still deciding whether he'll turn pro or return for another year. The 6-1 junior finished this season completed 66% of his passes for 2,594 yards and 18 touchdowns against nine interceptions. With Purdy coming back, the Cyclones are in prime position to make a run at the College Football Playoffs next year.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
As a true freshman, Purdy tied or set school records in completion percentage (66.4%) and 300-yard passing games (three). In just nine games of action, he racked up 21 total touchdowns as he's an effective runner and passer. His biggest obstacle in the upcoming season will be the loss of playmakers RB David Montgomery and WR Hakeem Butler who both left early for the NFL. It's not all bad though as he does benefit from the return of all five offensive lineman.
