Sam Howell

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Howell is a projected first-round pick in next year’s NFL Draft, but how should you approach him in fantasy this year? His talent is known, but it will be put to the test in 2021. Gone are 49 percent of the receiving yards and 44 percent of the targets in Dyami Brown and Dazz Newsome. And that’s while defenses were also focusing on stopping Javonte Williams and Michael Carter out of the backfield. All four are gone, so it will be on Howell to make the most of an inexperienced skill position group. Howell faces more uncertainty than some of the other quarterbacks going in his range in drafts.

Three touchdowns in loss
Upper Body
November 27, 2021
Howell completed 16-of-24 passes for 147 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Howell added 18 carries for 98 yards and two touchdowns in Friday's 34-30 loss to NC State.
ANALYSIS
After missing last week's contest with an upper body injury Howell came back Friday and fared pretty well. Howell didn't stuff the stat sheet through the air again on Saturday, passing for just 5.7 yards per attempt. Howell made up for his sub-par passing day by rushing for 98 yards and two touchdowns. With the 98 yard game Howell finishes the regular season with over 90 yards rushing in five of his last six outings.

2020 Fantasy Outlook
Howell is looking to build on an impressive freshman season that saw him throw for 3,641 yards and 38 touchdowns. How can he improve those totals as a sophomore? By being more efficient, as he completed "just" 61.4 percent of his throws, ranking a moderate 54th nationally. Howell will have a full complement of weapons to target, as the Heels return their top two leading rushers and top five receivers, led by a dynamic duo of Dazz Newsome and Dyami Brown, both of whom topped 1,000 yards and scored at least 10 times in 2019. Beau Corrales' 6-foot-4 frame gives Howell a bigger receiver to target inside the 20, and another year in the system with returning weapons suggests we haven't seen the best from Howell yet. He tossed multiple scores in every game last season, making him a consistent weekly option who could flirt or eclipse 40 TDs in 2020.
