Heisman Watch 2017: Week 4

 

1. Baker Mayfield – QB Oklahoma: 76-101 75.2% 1,329 yards 13 TD 0 INT. LW 1.

Still no interceptions and he is spreading the ball around.

 

2. Saquon Barkley – RB Penn State: 66 carries 518 yards 7.8 YPC 4 TD 23 catches 335 yards 14.6 YPC 2 TD. LW 3.

We wrestled with putting him #1 overall. The margin between Mayfield and Barkley is miniscule right now.

 

3. Mason Rudolph – QB Oklahoma State: 90-135 66.7% 1,533 yards 13 TD 3 INT 3 rushing TD.  LW 2.

Rudoplh  saw his completion percentage go way down for this game but that had more to do with the TCU defense then it did a poor performance by Rudolph.

 

4. Lamar Jackson – QB Louisville: 94-149 63.1% 1,387 yards 10 TD 3 INT 65 carries 337 yards 5.2 YPC 4 TD. LW 4.

Jackson threw as many incompletions (2) as interceptions (2) against Kent State.

 

5. Bryce Love – RB Stanford: 73 carries 787 yards 10.8 YPC 5 TD. LW NR.

We knew UCLA didn;t have much of a defense but wow...Bryce Love was running at will.

 

6. Rashaad Penny – RB San Diego State: 91 carries 716 yards 7.9 YPC 7 TD 12 catches 87 yards 1 TD. LW 10.

Penny had 3 touchdowns and a season-low 128 rushing yards against Air Force.

 

7. Royce Freeman – RB Oregon: 97 carries 541 yards 5.6 YPC 10 TD 9 catches 128 yards 14.2 YPC . LW 5.

Oregon didn't get the ball in Freeman's hands enough against Arizona State.

 

8.  Cam Phillips - WR Virginia Tech:  34 catches 523 yards 15.4 YPC 5 TD. LW NR.

Has been a one-man wrecking crew for a Hokie team that is sneaking up the rankings.

 

9.  Dante Pettis - WR/PR Washington:  15 catches 263 yards 17.5 YPC 3 TD  6 PR 237 yards 37.5 YPR 3 TD 1/1 passing 36 yards. LW 7.

Can't return any puints for touchdown if the other team doesn;t give you a chance.

 

10. Josh Rosen – QB UCLA: 131-200 65.5% 1,763 yards 16 TD 4 INT 1 rushing TD.  LW 8.

200 throws in four games, the inability to play defense affects so many areas od a football team.

 

.

Honorable Mention:   Quentin Flowers, QB, South Florida;  James Washington  WR, Oklahoma State; Ed Oliver, DT, Houston; Micah Kiser, LB, Virginia and Jake Browning, QB, Washington.
