Heisman Watch 2016: Week 6

 

1. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 101-170 59.4% 1,625 yards 14 TD 4 INT 92 carries 688 yards 7.5 YPC 14 TD. LW 1.

A week off for Jackson, though we think he still may have been credited with a touchdown or two.

 

2. Jake Browning Soph. – QB Washington: 104-144 72.2% 1,418 yards 23 TD 2 INT. LW 5.

Six touchdowns for Browning who currently owns a ridiculous 23/2 TD-INT ratio.

 

3. Deshaun Watson – QB Clemson: 125-206 60.7% 1,572 yards 18 TD 7 INT 58 carries 254 yards 4.4 YPC. LW 3.

Watson has thrown for 9 touchdowns in the last two weeks.

 

4. Jabrill Peppers – S/RB/KR/PR Michigan: 38 tackles 10 TFL 2.5 sacks 6 quarterback hurries 1 FF 5 carries 98 yards 19.8 YPC 2 TD 14 PR 249 yards 17.8 YPR 1 TD 3 KR 95 yards 31.7 YPR . LW 8.

Big touchdown run this week for Peppers and he had a punt return for a touchdown that was called back.

 

J.T. Barrett – QB Ohio State: 79-123 64.2% 981 yards 15 TD 3 INT 70 carries 342 yards 4.9 YPC 4 TD. LW 2.

Horrible stats through the air this week but Barrett stays near the top with a great game on the ground.

 

6. Donnell Pumphrey – RB San Diego State: 129 carries 891 yards 6.9 YPC 9 TD 18 catches 131 yards 0 TD LW 6.

Pumphrey still leads FBS in rushing and his seven catches against UNLV helped to show his versatility out of the backfield.

 

7. Greg Ward Jr. – QB Houston: 131-190 68.9% 1,684 yards 11 TD 4 INT 80 carries 272 yards 3.4 YPC 6 TD. LW 4.

Loss by Houston certainly dampens his chances, even for a seat in New York.

 

8.  Dalvin Cook- RB Florida State: 134 carries 785 yards 5.9 YPC 7 TD 20 catches 345 yards 17.3 YPC 1 TD. LW NR.

So dangerous in the open field when getting through the line both running and catching the football.

 

9. Jamaal Williams – RB BYU: 139 carries 866 yards 6.2 YPC 10 TD 7 catches 80 yards 11.4 YPC. LW NR.

Great to see Williams playing at such a high level after suffering through injury issues the last couple of seasons.

 

10. Corey Davis – WR Western Michigan: 36 catches 589 yards 16.4 YPC 8 TD. LW NR.

Simply the best senior wide receiver at the FBS level and helping Western Michigan to their first career ranking.

 

Honorable Mention:  Christian McCaffrey, RB, Stanford; Jeremy McNichols, RB, Boise State;  Patrick Mahomes II QB, Texas Tech and Davis Webb, QB, California..
