Jermar Jefferson
Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Injuries slowed Jefferson in 2019 as he averaged just 4.8 YPC and was far less involved in the passing game with just nine catches in nine games. He still managed 10 total touchdowns but it was still a far cry from his freshman season in which he racked up 1,380 rushing yards and 12 scores on 5.8 YPC to go with 25 grabs for 147 yards. Oregon State has no proven options behind Jefferson in the backfield now that Artavis Pierce is gone, so the team will be leaning on him for as much as he can handle. If Jefferson avoids the injury bug, he could push for one of the biggest workloads in the nation. The injury-riddled 2019 will steer some drafters away from Jefferson, but his backers could be in for a huge payoff should he play 12 games. Read Past Outlooks
Scores 10th TD of the year
November 30, 2019
Jefferson ran the ball 20 times for 81 yards and one touchdown and caught three passes for 24 yards against Oregon on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Jefferson scored his eighth rushing touchdown and 10th total touchdown of the season in his team's loss to in-state rival Oregon. Jefferson's sophomore campaign didn't live up to the hype of his freshman season, as he finished with 142 carries for 685 yards while limited by injuries. He'll look to bounce back next season when he'll enter the year as the focal point of his team's offense.

College Football Draft Kit: Running Back
June 24, 2019
The Draft Kit rolls on with a look at the running back position for 2019. Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor has NCAA history within reach and enters the year as our top fantasy running back.
2019 Fantasy Outlook
It's difficult to recall many true freshman season as promising as Jefferson's last year, as he raced to 1,380 yards and 12 touchdowns (5.8 YPC) despite hitting the rookie wall a bit and enduring a hamstring tweak in October. He failed to score in the final six games, but that stretch contained some tough matchups and he still went over 100 yards three times. Now a sophomore, Jefferson should have the benefit of greater physical development to hopefully power through the second-half wall that slowed him as a true freshman. If he maintains his current trajectory, Jefferson should prove a dominant fantasy asset.
