Javian Hawkins
Running BackRB
2020 Fantasy Outlook
Hawkins wasted little time bursting onto the fantasy landscape last season as a little-heralded former two-star recruit, rushing for 122 yards on 19 carries in his debut against Notre Dame. It would be one of eight 100-yard games for Hawkins during his freshman season, that ended with 264 carries, 1,525 yards and nine touchdowns. Hawkins got even stronger as the season went along, garnering 20+ carries in the team's final three contests and seven of their final nine, despite being listed at a mere 5-foot-9, 196 pounds. That's the only real concern for Hawkins entering 2020, is that despite his workload, he is a smaller back. While he led the team in rushing touchdowns, QB Micale Cunningham and RB Hassan Hall combined for 230 attempts, 983 yards and 11 rushing scores last year, and both return for 2020. Hawkins also is a non-factor in the passing game, snagging just four passes on seven targets in 2019. The Cardinals clearly aren't afraid to pound Hawkins often, but after a sterling debut, it's fair to question if his game has another level it can reach statistically. Read Past Outlooks
Opting out, entering draft
Personal
November 16, 2020
Hawkins announced Monday via his personal Twitter account that he will opt out of the remainder of the 2020 season to begin preparations for the 2021 NFL Draft.
ANALYSIS
Hawkins' decision to give up his remaining eligibility comes after he was ruled out ahead of Saturday's 31-17 loss to Virginia. The redshirt sophomore ends his three-year run at Louisville as one of the most productive running backs in program history. In 2019, he became the first Cardinals player to eclipse 1,500 yards on the ground, and he continued to shine during his seven outings this fall, racking up 822 rushing yards and 127 receiving yards while reaching the end zone eight times. Hassan Hall (undisclosed), Maurice Burkley and Jalen Mitchell are expected to see the bulk of the reps out of the backfield over the Cardinals' final three games of the season.
