Caleb Williams Fantasy Football Outlook (2024)

By Pat Fitzmaurice (FantasyPros), Tue, Jan 16th 2024, 4:42pm EST

The odds-on favorite to be the No. 1 pick in the 2024 NFL Draft, Caleb Williams figures to be a Day 1 starter for whichever team selects him. After transferring from Oklahoma to USC in 2022, Williams won the Heisman Trophy in his first season with the Trojans, throwing for 42 touchdowns and running for 10 more. Williams was slightly less spectacular in 2023 but still had a fine season for a defensively weak USC squad that asked its quarterback to carry the team all year. Williams has abundant arm talent and mobility. He's a creative quarterback who excels at making plays out of structure. Williams' supporting cast at USC wasn't great, so he probably won't be overwhelmed if he steps into an NFL offense that isn't brimming with talent. There's always a steep learning curve for rookie quarterbacks, but C.J. Stroud just reminded us that a high-quality rookie QB can be fantasy-viable right away.
