Malik Willis

23-Year-Old QuarterbackQB
Tennessee Titans
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

Willis completed one of four passes for six yards to go along with no touchdowns and no interceptions in Monday's 41-7 loss to the Bills. He added four rushes for 16 yards.
ANALYSIS
Willis played the final 19 minutes of the game, entering in relief of Ryan Tannehill in the midst of the blowout loss. He struggled with his accuracy as a passer -- his lone completion went to Austin Hooper -- and also lost a fumble. On the other hand, he did show his potential as a rusher, one of the factors that made him an intriguing prospect in the 2022 NFL Draft. Despite Ryan Tannehill's early struggles, Willis will almost certainly remain the backup for the majority -- if not the entirety -- of the campaign.
