2023 Fantasy Outlook
Could Penix’s Heisman-worthy 2022 season be a fluke? Only time will tell, but it’s hard to ignore last year’s numbers, which were about as good as eventual Heisman winner Caleb Williams. He threw for 4,651 yards, 31 touchdowns and only eight interceptions last season, and although his rushing numbers lacked the punch you’d expect from a dual-threat, his poise in the pocket wss unparalleled. While Penix played admirably at Indiana, he looked like a completely different player with the Huskies, showing once again how a change of scenery can transform a player’s fortunes. It will be interesting to see if Penix can catch lightning in a bottle once again and make play for the Heisman once more. Read Past Outlooks
Struggles in championship loss
January 9, 2024
Penix completed 27 of 51 passes for 255 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and carried three times for minus-5 yards in Monday's 34-13 loss to Michigan in the College Football Playoff National Championship.
ANALYSIS
After a stellar showing in Washington's Sugar Bowl win over Texas on Jan. 1, Penix was unable to replicate his success as a passer against a stingy Wolverines defense, tossing a pair of interceptions on a night in which he attempted a season-high 51 passes. He narrowly missed an open Rome Odunze on fourth down on a play that may have changed the outlook of the game, but the Huskies never managed to pull closer than within seven points after falling behind 17-3. Penix still posted a highly impressive 2023 campaign for the Huskies, completing 65.4 percent of his 555 passing attempts for 4,903 yards and a 36:11 TD:INT en route to a second place finish in the Heisman Trophy balloting. He'll now begin preparations for the 2024 NFL Draft.
