2020 Fantasy Outlook
Love has become a cautionary tale for players that choose to stay in college rather than entering the NFL Draft. He was the Heisman runner-up back in 2017 at Stanford, but he chose to return for 2018 and struggled through a disappointing season that ended with an ACL tear in August. Love then went to Washington in the fourth round of the 2019 draft, redshirting his rookie season and undergoing a follow-up knee surgery in October. With Adrian Peterson no longer in the mix, he'll compete for backfield work with Antonio Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber. Read Past Outlooks

Coach's Decision
September 13, 2020
Love (coach's decision) is listed as inactive Sunday against the Eagles.
ANALYSIS
With Adrian Peterson out of the picture, Washington's backfield was unsettled with Love competing with rookie Antonio Gibson and veterans J.D. McKissic and Peyton Barber. Love's placement on the Week 1 inactive list makes him the odd man out to start the campaign and pushes back his NFL debut. He has yet to suit up as a pro since he was selected in the fourth round of the 2019 draft, the result of a torn ACL near the end of the 2018 season at Stanford.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Despite building first-round NFL hype after rushing for 2,118 yards his junior season, Love made the unusual decision to return for a fourth campaign at Stanford. He found out why most players leave for the pros as soon as possible, struggling through an injury-plagued senior year in which he averaged just 4.5 yards per carry before seeing his campaign cut short in December due to a torn ACL. The Redskins saw enough talent to use a fourth-round pick on the 2017 Heisman runner-up, with the team able to take a patient approach while Derrius Guice, Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson lead the backfield in 2019. Love may ultimately be stashed on injured reserve with an eye on him contributing in the second half of the season, or in 2020.
