Cade Klubnik

QuarterbackQB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Expectations and pressure alike are abound for Cade Klubnik as he enters his first season as the Tigers starting quarterback. The national power has had uneven quarterback play over the past few seasons, and the former top recruit is being asked to return it to elite levels. Perhaps it shouldn’t be surprising given limited 2022 chances, but Klubnik was uneven in his initial opportunities, shining against North Carolina in the ACC Championship game before limping a bit in the Orange Bowl against Tennessee. Klubnik’s arm talents aren’t a concern, and he offers capable mobility with his legs, giving fantasy managers a bit of a bump there too. The excitement comes from the addition of new offensive coordinator Garrett Riley, who turned TCU QB Max Duggan into a Heisman Finalist, and brings a far more dynamic scheme than former OC Brandon Streeter. Clemson however hasn’t had elite receivers of late either, and we know they’ll be able to run successfully. All in all, the opportunity and system are in place for a major breakout, even if it comes with some week to week inconsistency due to a possible lack of game-changing pass catchers.

Modest outing in bowl game
January 3, 2024
Klubnik completed 30 of 41 passes for 264 yards and one interception during Friday's 38-35 win versus Kentucky. He also had 15 rushes for -12 yards.
ANALYSIS
Klubnik finished with his highest passing yards total from his last five outings while being efficient with his passes, as he completed 73.2 percent of his throws, the second-highest mark of the season.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Klubnik is coming to Clemson with all the high school accolades, five-star, top quarterback, MaxPreps Player of the Year. After a disappointing season from D.J. Uiagalelei fans are ready for change. Klubnik received a warm welcome from these fans at the team’s Orange and White Spring Game where Klubnik completed 15-of-23 passes for 106 yards. Following the Spring Game, fans have been ready to anoint Klubnik as the starter but, head coach Dabo Swinney has stated otherwise saying, “D.J. is definitely our starter,” in the post-game press conference. As of right now it seems Klubnik will start the season in the back up role but, Swinney has boasted about Klubnik, his talents and his ability to possibly lead the team, so Uiagalelei could be on a very short leash.
