Heisman Watch 2018: Week 4

 

1. Will Grier – QB West Virginia 71-95 74.7% 1,117 yards 14 TD 3 INT. LW:1.

As we have stated since the beginning of the year, nobody has a better supportingcast near the top of the rankings than Grier.

 

2. Tua Tagovailoa – QB Alabama: 58-90 72.5% 1,033 yards 12 TD 0 INT 18 carries 103 yards 5.7 YPC 2 TD. LW:2.

The best game for Tagovailoa in his brief college career.

 

3. Kyler Murray – QB Oklahoma 60-88 68.2.0% 1,033 yards 11 TD 2 INT 36 carries 240 yards 6.7 YPC 3 TD. LW:4.

It was a close call for the Sooners but Murray and his play under pressure won this game for the Sooners.

 

4. Dwayne Haskins – QB Ohio State: 87-115 75.7% 1,194 yards 16 TD 1 INT  1 rushing TD LW 3.

More touchdown passes than incompletions + the definition of a good day.

 

5. Darrell Henderson – RB Memphis: 58 carries 709 yards 12.2 YPC 8 TD 6 catches 124 yards 20.2 YPC 1 TD. LW:6.

We had talked about how when Henderson debuted at #6 last week we didn't expect him to stay on this list....all he did wasx move up after a 188 yard 2 touchdown performance.

 

6. McKenzie Milton – QB UCF 66-103 64.1% 895 yards 9 TD 3 INT 23 carries 147 yards 6.4 YPC 3 TD. LW:8.

Three touchdowns in the air and three on the ground this week has Milton moving up the board.

 

7. Ed Oliver – DT Houston 27 tackles 5 TFL  7 QB hurries 1 forced fumble 1 pass defensed.. LW:NR.

Best defenisve player in the nation gets a clearer shot at getting attention after the injury to Nick Bosa.

 

8. Jonathan Taylor – RB Wisconsin: 102 carries 658 yards 6.5 YPC 5 TD. LW:5.

Alex Hornibrook stepped up and made the big plays down the stretch, it will aid the production of Taylor down the stretch.

 

9. Trace McSorley – QB Penn State:  57-103 69.0% 763 yards 8 TD 2 INT  41 carries 235 yards 5.7 YPC 6 rushing TD. LW NR.

McSorley is aiding a dangerous Penn State ground game as they ready for their game against Ohio State.

 

10. John Ursua – WR Hawaii: 37 catches 623 yards 16.8 YPC 9 TD 1 rushing TD. LW NR.   

Big reason why Hawaii stands a surprising 4-1 to start the season.

 

Honorable Mention:  Drew Lock, QB, Missouri: AJ Dillon, RB, Boston College; Bryce Love, RB, Stanford; A.J. Brown, WR, Ole Miss: Justin Herbert, QB, Oregon and Devin Singletary, RB, Florida Atlantic.
