Graham Mertz

QuarterbackQB
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Anthony Richardson was a top-five pick in the NFL Draft, largely based upon his freakish athletic ability. The Gators brought in Mertz from Wisconsin in the transfer portal, though Mertz represents a play-caller standing in stark contrast to Richardson. Mertz is a pocket-passer, though has completed fewer than 60-percent of his passes during his collegiate career. He did throw a career-high 19 touchdowns a season ago, but has not lived up to his potential. If the change of scenery does not help Mertz, then former Ohio State transfer Jack Miller is next in line. Miller started the Las Vegas Bowl for the Gators, completing 13-of-22 passes for 180 yards. Florida should lean on its very talented backfield this season, but will obviously need production out of Mertz, Miller or Max Brown to stand any chance against Georgia in the SEC East. It would be a surprise if Mertz was not under center in the season opener for the Gators, though. Read Past Outlooks
Reportedly available for spring
February 7, 2024
Mertz (collarbone) "will definitely be ready to go" for spring football, Edgar Thompson of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
ANALYSIS
Mertz's 2023 season ended prematurely because of a non-displaced collarbone fracture he suffered several months ago. But after some months of recovery, it appears the senior quarterback will be good to go for spring football, which will allow him to get some action before his last season of collegiate eligibility. This is welcoming news for Florida, who will look to benefit from another great year by Mertz. Following his transfer from Wisconsin, he has completed 72.9 percent of 358 passes for 2,903 yards and a 20:3 TD:INT ratio, with each of the aforementioned tallies being his career bests.
