by DJ Boyer on Sep. 13, 2017

Heisman Watch 2017: Week2

 

1. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 55-85 64.7% 771 yards 5 TD 0 INT 40 carries 239 yards 7.0 YPC 3 TD. LW 1.

Don't understand why the hype is not there with Lamar Jackson right now, he is ahead of his pace last year from a production standpoint. With a big game against Clemson or even a win the critics should be silenced.

 

2. Baker Mayfield – QB Oklahoma: 46-55 83.6% 715 yards 6 TD 0 INT. LW 2.

Big win against Ohio State makes Mayfield more visible for the award.

 

3. Saquon Barkley – RB Penn State: 28 carries 260 yards 9.3 YPC 3 TD 7 catches 99 yards 14.1 YPC 1 TD. LW 3.

Can run inside or outside while catching passes in the flat and running crisp routes.

 

4. Royce Freeman – RB Oregon: 52 carries 303 yards 5.8 YPC 6 TD 5 catches 59 yards 12.0 YPC . LW 5.

Wants to continue to carry the bulk of the Ducks offensive load and show there are no lingering effects from his injury.

 

5. Josh Rosen – QB UCLA: 57-84 67.9% 820 yards 9 TD 0 INT 2 rushing TD.  LW 6.

Nine touchdowns and zero interceptions while helping orchastrate the amazing week 1 victory against Texas A&M.

 

6. Mason Rudolph – QB Oklahoma State: 45-62 72.6% 638 yards 3 TD 0 INT 2 rushing TD.  LW 8.

Now the all-time passing leader at Oklahoma State.

 

7. Sam Darnold – QB USC: 44-59 74.6% 605 yards 4 TD 4 INT.  LW NR.

The 4 interceptions are very misleading because Darnold has played very well.

 

8.  Bryce Love - RB Stanford:  30 carries 340 yards 11.3 YPC 2 TD  LW 7.

Stanford lost and Love is hurt becuase he hasn't shown in the passing game yet.

 

9. Auston Bryant – DE Clemson: 12 tackles 4 TFL 4.0 sacks.  LW NR.

Bryant paced the Tigers getting 4 of the teams 11 total sacks against Auburn.

 

10. Shea Patterson – QB Ole Miss: 60-78 76.9% 918 yards 9 TD 1 INT.  LW NR.

Patterson has been the most pleasant surprise of any SEC offensive player thus far.

 

 

Honorable Mention:   Quentin Flowers, QB, South Florida;  James Washington  WR, Oklahoma State and Jake Browning, QB, Washington.
