Kato Nelson
QuarterbackQB
Akron Zips
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Nelson had an up-and-down sophomore campaign, with a missed game due to an ankle injury mixed in. He failed to improve his efficiency by any significant stretch, going from a 50 percent completion rate as a freshman to 52.0 percent in 2018. A relative lack of top-end talent around him will hurt, but Andre Williams emerged as a viable No. 1 wide receiver last year. The head coaching change from Terry Bowden to Tom Arth shouldn't make much difference for Nelson or the Zips' offense, and better consistency could bring a solid jump this year. Read Past Outlooks

Shoulder
October 12, 2019
Nelson went 17-for-28 for 202 yards, along with a team-high 64 rushing yards, Saturday against Kent State.
ANALYSIS
Nelson suffered a shoulder injury in Akron's last game and did not practice early in the week, but he seemed fine on Saturday. Barring a setback, he should good to go next week against Buffalo.
