College Production

During the 2020 season, Bennett took over as the starting quarterback for the Georgia Bulldogs when D’wan Mathis was benched due to poor performance. In the remaining eight games of the season, he started every game and threw for a modest 1174 yards on 158 attempts with a completion rate of 54.4%. He averaged 7.4 yards per pass, threw eight touchdowns, and was sacked four times, earning a QB rating of 79.5. Additionally, he carried the ball 23 times for a total of 101 yards, averaging 4.4 yards per rush.

In his senior year in 2021, Bennett began the season as the backup quarterback to transfer JT Daniels. However, Daniels suffered an injury after just one game, giving Bennett a second opportunity to start. He capitalized on the chance, starting in 13 games and throwing for 2637 yards on 261 attempts. Bennett had a 64% completion rate and an average of 10.1 yards per pass, adding 27 touchdowns to his tally. He was sacked nine times and boasted an impressive QB rating of 120.8. Bennett also contributed to the ground game, carrying the ball 46 times for 347 yards, averaging 7.5 yards per rush. His impressive performances helped lead the Bulldogs to the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship game, where they faced Alabama in a rematch.

In a surprising move, Bennett decided to remain at Georgia instead of entering the draft, and in his fifth and final year as a senior in 2022, he played in 13 games. He had an outstanding season, throwing for 3430 yards on 395 attempts with a completion rate of 67.8% for an average of 8.7 yards per pass. He also recorded 20 TDs, 9 sacks, and a QB rating of 105.4. Additionally, he added 49 rushes for a total of 224 yards, averaging 4.6 yards per run.

• Displays confidence and focus in big games.

• A great leader.

• Comfortable coming off primary read when necessary.

• Utilizes pump fakes to manipulate cornerbacks in high/low concepts.

•nMakes throws with excellent anticipation from the pocket.

• Shows great athleticism and speed once he becomes a runner.


• Tends to hold the ball too long

• Mechanics can disappear when under pressure and pushed off his spot

• Tiny size at 5-11 and 190 lbs may make it challenging to stay healthy in the pocket, especially when not playing behind a strong offensive line

• Arm strength is decent but lacks ideal strength, leading to accuracy issues when he can’t or won’t set his feet

• Needs to work on lowering trajectory on deep throws, as some of his throws have too much air.

Fantasy Outlook

Bennett is barely being drafted in Dynasty Rookie drafts. He landed in a nice spot to learn and develop with the Rams but his physical limitations and stature may prove to be too much when it comes to being an NFL starter.

Also, Bennett is already  25 years old. That won’t help his dynasty stock. Most likely, this will be another case of a very good college quarterback who simply doesn’t pan out the same way in the pros.

That said, there is enough arm talent and leadership to justify rostering Bennett in Superflex dynasty leagues that have expansive rosters.
