Trevor Lawrence 2021 Fantasy Football Outlook
It’s not a stretch to say that Trevor Lawrence is the most hyped player to come out of the 2021 draft class — and rightfully so. The No. 1 overall pick was widely considered a future NFL franchise quarterback for most of his college career. Lawrence was Deshaun Watson’s successor at Clemson, where he lost only two games as a starter and won a national championship as a freshman.
He appears to be the prototypical quarterback, boasting a 6-foot-6 frame combined with above-average arm strength, accuracy and mobility, all traits which made him a consensus No. 1 overall pick.
Jacksonville, which had already made multiple significant changes this offseason that included the hiring of new head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, were also blessed with the good fortune of having the top overall pick in the year Lawrence was turning pro. Both Meyer and Bevell are known for their preference of pass-heavy attacks, and Lawrence seemingly will fit in perfectly with such an approach.
Lawrence was one of four offensive players taken by the Jaguars in the draft and will join a unit with some explosive weapons already in-house. One such draftee is Travis Etienne, who was also selected by Jacksonville in the first round. A teammate of Lawrence’s at Clemson, he’s one of the many dynamic offensive players Lawrence will have at his disposal.
With the Jaguars defense still being a major question mark, Lawrence and company will likely be forced to put up plenty of points to keep pace in many games.
Trevor Lawrence 2021 Fantasy Football Draft Value (PPR)
Lawrence is arguably one of the safest rookies to draft for fantasy due to the lack of competition on his team and the immediate impact he is expected to have. Wide receivers DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault both showed potential in 2020 — even with subpar quarterback play — and are primed to benefit greatly from the addition of Lawrence. Jacksonville also added veteran wide receivers Marvin Jones Jr. and Phillip Dorsett, who both boast above-average speed and will help the rookie quarterback navigate his first NFL season.
Given his own significant talent and the weapons around him, it isn’t out of the question for Lawrence to finish as a top 15-to-18 player at his position if he can get a full 17 games worth of playing time.
