Heisman Watch 2018: Week 2

 

1. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin: 51 carries 398 yards 7.8 YPC 5 TD. LW:1

Taylor stays at the top of the rankings with over 200 yards and three touchdowns on the ground for the Badgers.

 

2. Will Grier – QB West Virginia 46-60 76.7% 761 yards 9 TD 1 INT. LW:3.

Health remains the key with Grier as he has the receiving corps around him to win the Heisman.

 

3. Tua Tagovailoa – QB Alabama: 25-35 71.4% 455 yards 6 TD 0 INT 9 carries 46 yards 5.1 YPC 1 TD. LW:2.

Chances for winning the award will go down drastically if Jalen Hurts continues to get significant snaps.

 

4. Dwayne Haskins – QB Ohio State: 42-53 79.2% 546 yards 9 TD 1 INT  LW 7.

Has looked comfortable with his progressional reads.

 

5. Kyler Murray – QB Oklahoma 28-44 63.6.0% 515 yards 5 TD 1 INT 14 carries 92 yards 6.6 YPC 2 TD. LW:5.

Hard to believe he is a better baseball prospect than football....scary.

 

6. McKenzie Milton – QB UCF 45-71 63.4% 589 yards 6 TD 3 INT 10 carries 66 yards 6.6 YPC 0 TD. LW:4.

A three interception game for Milton, has to show that was just one bad outing if he wants to stay in the hunt.

 

7. Nick Bosa – DE Ohio State 9 tackles 5 TFL 3 sacks 2 fumble recoveries 1 TD. LW:NR.

We all know it is virtually impossible for a defensive player to win the award but Bosa is showing the way with a monster start to the season.

 

8. Justin Herbert – QB Oregon: 30-47 63.8% 531 yards 9 TD 2 INT  1 rushing TD. LW 8.

Herbert was a bit uneven in week 1 but rebounded with a strong week 2.

 

9. Ed Oliver – DT Houston:  18 tackles 4 TFL 6 quarterback hurries 1 pass defensed. LW:NR.

No sacks for Oliver yet but 18 tackles from the defensive tackle position is impressive and he totally changes the flow of the game and is a disruptive force on every snap.

 

10. AJ Dillon – RB Boston College: 26 carries 247 yards 9.5 YPC 3 TD. LW:NR.

Only had to carry the ball six times this week....and three went to the house.

 

Honorable Mention:  Bryce Love, RB, Stanford; Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State;  A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss: Brett Rypien, QB, Boise State and Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic.
