Kentucky sophomore WR Garrett Johnson caught five passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 win over Louisville.

Both of Johnson's touchdown catches came in the first half and both were of the longer variety, coming from 75 yards out and 63 yards out in the first and second quarters (respectively). The 5-foot-11, 182-pound sophomore finishes the regular-season campaign with a 36-568-5 receiving line. He will now await bowl assignment with the rest of his Wildcat friends. Kentucky has won five of their last seven games.

Kentucky junior QB Stephen Johnson completed 16-of-27 passes for 338 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 41-38 win over Louisville.

In an entertaining, offense-friendly game, it was the Wildcats who ultimately clawed their way in front when the final gun sounded. Johnson led them to the game-winning 47-yard field goal after Lamar Jackson fumbled away a Cardinals' scoring opportunity in the closing minutes of the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-2, 183-pound Johnson has largely been a quiet performer since taking over for an injured Drew Barker back in September. He has thrown 12 touchdown passes in 11 games this season.

Kentucky C Jon Toth has earned an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Toth is a four year starter at center, so there should be plenty of tape for evaluators to check out against top flight SEC competition. He's on the taller end of the center spectrum at 6-foot-5.
Nov 21 - 11:25 AM

Kentucky HC Mark Stoops said that there is a "good chance" redshirt junior WR Jeff Badet (hip) will be able to play against Austin Peay on Saturday.

While Badet is dealing with a hip pointer, it looks to be a minor injury. He has yet to miss a game this season. Through 10 contests, the 6-foot, 180-pound wideout is working to a 23-545-4 receiving line.

Kentucky redshirt junior WR Alexander Montgomery has retired after undergoing knee surgery.

Knee concerns aren't new for Montgomery, as he tore his ACL last November. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder suffered a setback in his recovery from that tear during August camp and had not appeared in a game during the 2016 campaign. He finishes his Kentucky career having caught 19 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

NFL Media Draft analyst Chad Reuter believes Kentucky C Jon Toth is a "technically sound, intelligent leader" who has "an NFL future."

"He's tall at 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, but Toth still usually won the leverage battle against Missouri's shorter, strong defensive tackles," Reuter wrote. "He'll need to play with knee bend more consistently to anchor against NFL-caliber players, though. Toth stayed with his block through the whistle, keeping his feet alive and hands engaged. He also moves well to linebackers and keeps his balance on the move because he doesn't overreach." Toth was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week last month after the Vanderbilt game.

Kentucky junior RB Stanley "Boom" Williams rushed for 182 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 35-21 win over Missouri.

Kentucky absolutely buried Missouri via the run in this one, rushing for 380 yards as a team. The bulk of that came via the fine work of Boom and Benjamin Snell Jr. (192 yards, two touchdowns). For his part, the 5-foot-9, 196-pound Williams opened the scoring with a bang, rushing for a 60-yard touchdown with 8:41 remaining in the first quarter. In addition to that long score on the ground, he also caught a 13-yard touchdown pass. Williams has now rushed for 821 yards and three touchdowns. He has surpassed 100 yards rushing in three of eight games played. Boom is talented enough that he will occasionally bring home the bacon for fantasy owners, but doesn't offer the week-to-week consistency of a true RB1.

Kentucky freshman RB Benjamin Snell Jr. carried the ball a ridiculous 38 times for 192 yards and two touchdowns in the school's 35-21 win over Missouri.

Snell's fresh legs carried the team to a win and helped him secure a Kentucky freshman record in the process. Snell's most impressive run originated from the Wildcat, and he pushed through Missouri's entire defense from about three yards out to reach beyond the goal line. This is NSell's third 120-plus yard performance, including two in a row.
Oct 29 - 4:16 PM

Kentucky freshman RB Benjamin Snell Jr. rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 40-38 win over Mississippi State.

Snell and Boom Williams both proved to be effective runners in this one, with Mr. Williams rushing for 99 yards of his own in the victory. For his part, the 5-foot-11, 220-pound Snell averaged 6.7 YPC. This was his second 100-yard effort in five games. Those in dynasty formats should consider picking Snell off the waiver wire if he is not owned, as he should have decent future value once Boom (a junior) is out of the picture, but those in single-season formats will find less bang for their buck here.
Oct 22 - 11:47 PM

Kentucky redshirt junior WR Jeff Badet caught seven passes for 139 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 40-38 win over Mississippi State.

Badet's true shining quarter proved to be the third. After the two teams emerged from the locker room, the 6-foot, 180-pound redshirt junior struck for a pair of long touchdown catches, first rocking the Bulldogs with a 44-yarder and following it up with a 40-yarder. Despite this strong, strong performance, we would advise interested fantasy parties to think twice before putting in a claim on the waiver wire. Badet had been held under 90 yards in every game to date prior to his meeting with Mississippi State.
Oct 22 - 11:33 PM

Kentucky redshirt junior LB De'Niro Laster will miss the remainder of the 2016 season due to a left knee injury.

Laster's knee injury will require surgery. He initially arrived on the Kentucky campus in the summer of 2015, after transferring from Minnesota. The 6-foot-4, 226-pounder had appeared in five games this season, recording 14 tackles (2.0 for loss) and a sack in that space. HC Mark Stoops indicated that the Wildcats' bye during Week 7 has proven helpful, as it allowed the team additional time to prep Jordan Bonner and Kengera Daniel for potential depth help.

Kentucky HC Mark Stoops indicated that redshirt sophomore QB Drew Barker (back) could return before the end of the season.

"Not going to rule it out yet. So, not ready to make that decision — or the doctors aren’t ready to make that decision," Stoops said. The 6-foot-3, 225-pounder hasn't played since September 17, when he suffered his fateful back injury in a win over New Mexico State. While it looks like Barker still has an outside shot of returning to action before winter descends, Stephen Johnson will continue to start at signal-caller for the Wildcats in the foreseeable future. Kentucky plays Mississippi State on Saturday.

Kentucky sophomore WR Dorian Baker (hamstring) is expected to be a full participant in practice this week.

Baker has yet to see game action due to a balky hamstring, but it appears that he is finally moving toward a 2016 debut. The 6-foot-3, 208-pounder will next have the opportunity to suit up against Vanderbilt this coming Saturday. A year ago, he caught 56 passes for 612 yards and three touchdowns.
Oct 3 - 12:44 PM

Kentucky junior RB Stanley "Boom" Williams rushed for 21 yards on 10 carries in Saturday's 34-6 loss to Alabama.

Nothing doing for Boom in this one. He wasn't alone in that regard, as the entire Wildcat offense failed to spark. Kentucky managed just 161 total yards on offense in the mauling. This is just what Alabama does to people. The 5-foot-9, 196-pound junior entered the contest having rushed for 120-plus yards in each of his last two games. He will try to return to that level of play against Vanderbilt next weekend.
Oct 1 - 10:54 PM

Kentucky sophomore WR Dorian Baker (hamstring) is considered day-to-day for Saturday's game against Alabama.

We could basically just re-publish the same blurb every week until there's an actual update. Baker's troublesome hammy has kept him off the field the entire season, but the injury has never really been considered serious enough to move him out of day-to-day territory. Baker has practiced -- but in limited capacity -- this week.
