2021 Fantasy Outlook
Demus and Rakim Jarrett combine to form one of the best receiving tandems in the Big Ten, and a pass-happy offense helps elevate both players' floors. While Jarrett is the more highly touted of the two, Demus was the more productive of the two last season, leading the team in every major receiving category. Demus (6-3, 217) has shown dynamic playmaking ability throughout his time at Maryland, having amassed 78 catches for 1,268 yards and 10 touchdowns on 149 targets in three seasons. Jarrett may go earlier in some drafts based on perceived upside, but Demus is a nice value who provides a high floor in the Terrapin offense. Read Past Outlooks
Done for season
Knee
October 5, 2021
Demus (leg) will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 season due to a knee injury that required surgery, Emily Giambalvo of The Washington Postreports.
ANALYSIS
This is hardly a surprise given the way Demus' leg awkwardly bent during Saturday's contest against Iowa, but it's an unfortunate end to a promising season for the senior wideout. He closes out 2021 with 28 catches for 507 yards and three touchdowns over five games and could have a chance to may have a chance to apply for a medical redshirt should he choose to do so.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Demus led the way for Maryland in what wound up being a season to forget in the passing game. He finished the year with a 24.8 target share on 82 targets, hauling in just half of those to finish the year with 41 grabs for 625 yards and six scores. With some intriguing wideouts set to join (five-star freshman Rakim Jarrett) or rejoin (Jeshaun Jones -- missed last year with an ACL tear) the Terps’ passing attack, it’s questionable whether or not Demus will maintain such a high percentage. Of course, improved play from Josh Jackson at the quarterback position could increase the efficiency when the ball heads Demus’ way.
