Sam Howell
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. Read Past Outlooks
Three touchdowns in rout of Miami
December 13, 2020
Howell completed 14-of-19 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown Saturday at Miami, adding four carries for five yards and a score, and a one-yard touchdown catch.
ANALYSIS
Howell largely wasn't needed with the Heels ground game churning out 554 yards and 10.1 yards per carry, but it's nice to see Howell provide great fantasy return even in minimal chances. His regular season concludes with 3,352 yards, just 289 less than a year ago in two fewer games, and 33 total touchdowns. Howell and the Heels now await their bowl assignment to conclude the year.
