Casey Thompson

QuarterbackQB
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Thompson is the clear front-runner for Nebraska’s starting quarterback job heading into the 2022 campaign. The Texas transfer boasts the highest upside of any signal-caller on the Huskers’ roster, but he is by no means perfect. Though he struggled down the stretch of the 2021 season, Thompson started 10 games with Texas last season and threw for 2,113 yards and 24 touchdowns while completing 63.2 percent of his passes. New offensive coordinator and unofficial passing game coordinator Mark Whipple should help optimize Thompson's potential. Whipple has orchestrated a long line of prolific passing offenses throughout his career, including a Pittsburgh offense led by Heisman trophy finalist Kenny Pickett in 2021. Thompson will have a chance to star at the center of Nebraska’s refurbished offense in 2022, so long as his new team helps put him in the best positions to succeed. Read Past Outlooks
