2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bentley decided to return for his senior season at South Carolina despite putting up career numbers in 2018. He passed for 3,171 yards and 27 touchdowns, placing him fourth in the SEC in both categories. He did lose leading receiver Deebo Samuel to the NFL, but Bryan Edwards and Shi Smith should be more than capable at wideout. The Gamecocks have an extremely difficult schedule which includes matchups with Clemson, Alabama and Georgia, though Bentley did toss five touchdowns against the defending champion Tigers last season. The schedule still won't do him any favors, but Bentley's ceiling is 3,500 yards and 30 touchdowns. Read Past Outlooks
Moving on from South Carolina

Foot
December 2, 2019
Bentley (foot) announced Monday via a post on his personal Twitter account that he will leave the South Carolina program and head elsewhere as a graduate transfer for his final year of eligibility in 2020.
ANALYSIS
A senior heading into 2019, Bentley retains an extra year of eligibility after appearing in only one game for South Carolina before requiring season-ending surgery to address a mid-foot sprain in September. True freshman Ryan Hilinski took over as the Gamecocks' starting quarterback after Bentley was shut down and looks poised to hold down the top job heading into 2020, which likely explains the upperclassman's decision to head elsewhere. Bentley should have a good amount of suitors at the FBS level after completing 61.9 percent of his passes for 8.2 yards per attempt and a 27:14 TD:INT during his last healthy season in 2018.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Bentley showed improvement during his first full year under center for South Carolina, passing for 2,794 yards and 18 touchdowns while rushing for six scores. His ball security will be something to watch in 2018 after throwing 12 picks a season ago. Bentley will have three of his top wideouts back for the 2018 campaign, with Bryan Edwards, Deebo Samuel and Shi Smith all figuring to serve as key cogs in the offense through the air. Samuel, who missed the bulk of 2017 with a leg injury, will add a dynamic component to Bentley's arsenal. Bentley has potential for a stellar season as part of a pass-heavy system (51.91 pass play percentage, 36th in FBS).
