Malik Willis

23-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
2022 Fantasy Outlook
A third-round pick in this year’s draft, Willis is a dual-threat QB with a rocket arm and elite speed for the position. It's because of those attributes that some pegged Willis as a first-rounder. He fell, though, because scouts questioned his inconsistent mechanics and processing issues, which led to inaccuracy (61.1 completion percentage) and interceptions (12) in his second of two seasons at Liberty. Willis will have time to refine those skills this season as the backup to Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee. If the rookie is forced into action, the outlook isn’t great. Not just because he needs time to develop, but because the Titans traded A.J. Brown and released Julio Jones and replaced them with Robert Woods (coming off an ACL tear), rookie Treylon Burks and TE Austin Hooper. Any hope for Year 1 fantasy value likely requires Tannehill missing time and Willis taking a bunch of carries in an extremely run-heavy offense. Read Past Outlooks
Free fall ends in Tennessee
QBTennessee Titans
April 29, 2022
The Titans selected Willis in the third round of the 2022 NFL Draft, 86th overall.
Willis was expected to be a first-round pick, so while that assumption was off the mark, this still looks like a good pick for the Titans. Willis (6-foot-1, 219 pounds) had accuracy and processing issues at Liberty, but the coaching and surrounding personnel there were lacking to the point that underdevelopment might be the issue more than a lack of ability. If Willis can sharpen his reads and accuracy, he otherwise has substantial athletic tools to work with, including running ability that might match any quarterback aside from Lamar Jackson. Ryan Tannehill is naturally locked in as Tennessee's starting quarterback in the short term, but Willis now profiles as his successor.
