Josh Downs

Wide ReceiverWR
2021 Fantasy Outlook
North Carolina has to replace over 60 percent of its targets from a year ago, leaving its receiver pecking order up for grabs. Downs appears to be one of the few locks to start among this inexperienced group, though, and his small sample size as a freshman was promising. A former Top 100 recruit, Downs broke out in the Orange Bowl against Texas A&M when Dyami Brown sat out, catching four of five targets for 91 yards and two touchdowns. If Downs stays on his current trajectory, he will be Sam Howell’s top target, and that would vault him into must-start status every week. Read Past Outlooks
Leading receiver in loss
November 27, 2021
Downs had eight catches for 75 yards in Friday's 34-30 loss to NC State.
ANALYSIS
In a poor passing day for the Tar Heels, Downs accounted for over 50 percent of the yardage through the air. With the 75 yard day, Downs ended his sophomore regular season with 1,273 yards and eight touchdowns while averaging 8.1 catches per game and 13.0 yards per catch.
