Heisman Watch 2018: Week 3

 

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

No game due to the weather but Grier ascends to the top spot after the stumble by Jonathan Taylor.

 

2. Tua Tagovailoa – QB Alabama: 36-50 72.0% 646 yards 8 TD 0 INT 14 carries 93 yards 6.6 YPC 1 TD. LW:3.

The numbers aren't gaudy because Jalen Hurts has been seeing time as well but Tagovailoa has been effective and lethal.

 

3. Dwayne Haskins – QB Ohio State: 66-91 72.5% 546 yards 11 TD 1 INT  1 rushing TD LW 4.

You can argue he is playing better than JT Barrett was at this time a year ago for the Buckeyes.

 

4. Kyler Murray – QB Oklahoma 49-73 67.1.0% 863 yards 8 TD 1 INT 29 carries 169 yards 5.8 YPC 2 TD. LW:5.

You can just see Murtray gaining confidence with every passing game.

 

5. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin: 77 carries 515 yards 6.7 YPC 5 TD. LW:1.

Alex Hornibrook has to become more of a passing threat to help Taylor.

 

6. Darrell Henderson – RB Memphis: 36 carries 521 yards 14.5 YPC 6 TD 4 catches 90 yards 22.5 YPC 1 TD. LW:NR.

We don't expect Henderson to finish in the top 10 but it's hard to ignore his brilliant play over the last two weeks.

 

7. Nick Bosa – DE Ohio State 13 tackles 6 TFL 4 sacks 1 forced fumble 2 fumble recoveries 1 TD. LW:7.

We need to monitor the severity of his abdominal strain injury that caused him to exit ther TCU game early.

 

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

Milton had the week off due Hurricane Florence.

 

9. AJ Dillon – RB Boston College: 59 carries 432 yards 7.3 YPC 4 TD 1 receiving TD. LW:10.

Dillon was the workhorse against Wake Forest and DIllon caught the first two passes of his college career in this game and one went for a touchdown.

 

10. Drew Lock – QB Missouri: 78-113 69.0% 1,062 yards 11 TD 1 INT  2 rushing TD. LW NR.

Lock has developed a rhythm with Missouri and they have the potential to be a sneaky good team this season.

 

Honorable Mention:  Ed Oliver, DT, Houston; Bryce Love, RB, Stanford; Trace McSorley, QB, Penn State;  A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon and Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic.
