C.J. Stroud
QuarterbackQB
2021 Fantasy Outlook
Stroud is something of a mystery in that he doesn’t have the recruiting pedigree of Young or the experience of Uiagelelei, but he’s also talented enough to be QB1 at Ohio State and has the added bonus of playing with arguably the best receiver tandem in the nation. He also showed off his wheels in his brief cameo last season, taking his one run 48 yards to the house, so there’s reason to believe he can be a strong rusher. There’s some risk with Stroud, but Ohio State’s run of success with quarterbacks should still give his investors confidence that he can produce. Read Past Outlooks
Over 400 yards Saturday
September 12, 2021
Stroud completed 35 of 53 passes for 484 yards and three touchdowns in the 35-28 loss against Oregon on Saturday. He also ran the ball five times for negative three yards and threw one interception.
ANALYSIS
The redshirt freshman missed a couple of important throws late that may have helped his team win the game but altogether he still had a very good day. The Ohio State defense struggled mightily against the Ducks and Minnesota which has forced the Buckeyes to air it out. As long as the defense struggles, Stroud should put up big numbers in order to keep Ohio State in the game.
