2020 Early Heisman Early Odds: Best Value Candidate No. 9
QB D’Eriq King, Miami 30/1
You don’t play college fantasy football, but if you did, Houston QB D’Eriq King went first in your league, or was selected in the top five no matter what the format.
That didn’t work out so well.
Miami QB D’Eriq King should do a whole lot better.
The electrifying playmaker threw for almost 3,000 yards with 36 touchdowns and six picks in 2018, and he ran for 674 yards and 14 scores.
But the Cougars stumbled out of the gate in 2019, King decided to sit out the season to preserve his eligibility, and now it’ll be his job to be the savior of a woeful Miami offense.
There’s a whole lot of work to do – he has to lock down the starting quarterback job, first – but if the 2018 King shows up in Coral Gables against a stunningly manageable schedule, 30/1 might be a nice call.
