2021 Fantasy Outlook
Whittington could have an expanded role for the Longhorns in 2021 with Jake Smith entering the transfer portal. He provides Texas with some versatility at the wide receiver position as he can also work out of the backfield. He likely won't need to play running back with the stud Bijan Robinson in the mix, but he can contribute with wideouts Joshua Moore and Troy Omeire on the outside. New coach and playcaller Steve Sarkisian was fantastic with the receivers at Alabama, so there's good reason to believe the Longhorns' passing game will be above average in 2021. Read Past Outlooks
Done for regular season
Collarbone
October 14, 2021
Whittington (collarbone) will miss the remainder of the regular season but could return for the Big 12 Championship Game (if the Longhorns make it) or a bowl game, Brian Davis of the Austin American-Statesman reports.
ANALYSIS
Whittington was ruled out for "a while" earlier in the week, but now a clearer picture of his timetable has been presented. The sophomore would only be available for a late-season return at this point, making him a droppable option in most season-long fantasy formats. Coach Steve Sarkisian indicated that Marcus Washington should slide into the vacated spot but also noted that Kelvontay Dixon should have a "great opportunity" as well.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The true freshman received heavy praise in the spring from the coaching staff who envision Whittington being a capable back-up to Keaontay Ingram. Duel-threat quarterback Sam Ehlinger dealt with some injuries last season which leads to the team leaning on Ingram and Whittington to take the bulk of hits from defenders, so that Ehlinger can stay healthy. Whittington has sleeper fantasy potential if he can prove productive in the passing game in what should prove to be a much improved offense.
