2020 Fantasy Outlook
Emery came to LSU amid much fanfare last year, but the backfield was crowded behind starter Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who shined as the Tigers roared to the National Title. Emery had just 39 carries for 188 yards as a freshman, though he did score four times on the ground. Edwards-Helaire has moved on to greener pastures, and Lanard Fournette left school, but Chris Curry and Tyrion Davis-Price still remain as competition for Emery. Curry had 38 carries last year, while Davis-Price had 64 and six touchdowns. Perhaps which back emerges as the best pass catcher out of the backfield will go a long way towards determining who sees the majority of the touches, as the aforementioned Edwards-Helaire registered 55 receptions in 2019.

Progressing to contact drills

March 30, 2021
Emery (shoulder) is set to take some contact in Thursday's practice, Brooks Kubena of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
ANALYSIS
Emery has been limited to non-contact work thus far in spring as he works his way back from shoulder surgery. He is progressing, however, and will be cleared to go through "thud practice" on Thursday, which is just shy of being a full-contact practice.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
There’s some risk in putting this much stock in a player who hasn’t played a down in college, but when it’s a player of Emery’s talent heading into a situation like LSU’s, it’s worth it. Emery is regarded as the second-best back in the 2019 class with a blend of power and explosiveness. The situation couldn’t be better, either; 2018 leading rusher Nick Brossette is gone and Clyde Edwards-Helaire is a middling talent who averaged just 4.5 YPC. Emery is the most talented back on the roster and has a legitimate shot at setting the LSU freshman rushing record.
