Speaking of QB health, is this the year that Kansas' Jaden Daniels finally plays a full season? No one would fault a fan for betting against that given his history.

If he does play a full season, Kansas will have a huge offensive season. RB Devin Neal and wide receiver Lawrence Armstrong are tremendous weapons that could break open any game.

The defense also took steps in the right direction in 2023. It held nine opponents under 30 points. If that happens again in 2024, Daniels and the offense could propel the Jayhawks to a big season.
