Gavin Wimsatt

2022 Fantasy Outlook
As the highest-rated quarterback recruit in school history, it is only a matter of time before Wimsatt officially steps in as Rutgers' starting quarterback this season. The four-star out of Kentucky chose to graduate high school a year early to join the Scarlet Knights’ program last September. Outside of the team’s bowl-game loss, Wimsatt did not see significant playing time as a freshman while still getting acclimated to the college game. The 6-foot-3 signal-caller produced understandably uneven results during this small sample size of 40 snaps over 4 games, but his promising potential as a dual-threat quarterback should make him a perfect fit for coordinator Sean Gleeson’s frenetic offense. So, while Wimsatt may still have to prove himself over returning two-year starter Noah Vedral, it should not be long before the team’s quarterback of the future is the one facing down the difficult slate of Big Ten East opponents.

Blanked in season finale
November 30, 2022
Wimsatt completed five of 13 passes for 48 yards during Saturday's 37-0 defeat to Maryland. He also rushed four times for a negative-13 net yards.
ANALYSIS
Wimsatt notched his fewest total yards of the season since going out early with an injury Week 3, as the Scarlet Knights' offense went three and out on six of 11 drives with Wimsatt in the game. The dual-threat quarterback was also sacked twice before he was replaced by Evan Simon early in the fourth quarter. After splitting quarterback duties for much of the season, Wimsatt started each of the last five games for Rutgers, going 55-for-122 passing for 640 yards and a 4:5 TD:INT ratio. He'll likely compete with Simon for this starting job heading into next season.
