Heisman Watch: Week 10

Heisman Watch: Week 10

1. Corey Coleman – WR Baylor: 58 catches 1,178 yards 20.3 YPC 20 TD.  LW 5.

Corey Coleman is not a name you expect to see at the top of this list. What a week to come up with a season-best 11-216-2 effort. If Baylor keeps winning with a freshman QB it will be in large part to the continued excellent play of Corey Coleman.

 

2. Leonard Fournette – RB LSU: 195 carries 1,383 yards 7.1 YPC 16 TD LW 1.

I am still ranking Leonard Fournette ahead of Derrick Henry because he doesn't have a balanced offense at his disposal.

 

3. Derrick Henry – RB Alabama: 218 carries 1,254 yards 5.8 YPC 17 TD LW NR.

Henry destroyed Fournette head-to-head but the Heisman is for a seasons body of work, not just one game. Although Henry made as big a statement as possible and has a realistic shot at the trophy.

 

4. Ezekiel Elliot – RB Ohio State: 193 carries 1,244 yards 6.4 YPC 14 TD 24 catches 169 yards. LW 3.

A consistent threat and we have the feeling Elliot has not yet had his best day of the season.

 

5. Trevone Boykin – QB TCU: 234-355 65.9% 3,373 yards 29 TD 9 INT 107 carries 599 yards 5.6 YPC 8 TD. LW 2.

Four interceptions against the Oklahoma State Cowboys may have ended Boykin's campaign.

 

6. Deshaun Watson – QB Clemson: 182-261 69.7% 2,233 yards 21 TD 7 INT 94 carries 495 yards 5.3 YPC 4 TD. LW NR.

Has played his best football this season when Clemson has been behind or in a tight game and needed to extend a lead.

 

7. Paxton Lynch – QB Memphis: 226-327 69.1% 3,014 yards 19 TD 2 INT 60 carries 192 yards 2 TD. LW 4.

Lynch didn't have his best game against Navy but he wasn't the reason why Memphis lost.

 

8. Josh Doctson – WR TCU: 78 catches 1,315 yards 16.9 YPC 14 TD.  LW 6.

Left early against Oklahoma State due to an injury, the extent is still being debated and is unknown.

 

9. Greg Ward Jr.- QB Houston: 164-233 70.4% 2,116 yards 13 TD 4 INT 140 carries 829 yards 5.9 YPC 16 TD. LW 7.

Lowest passing total for a game this year but Ward let his feet do the talking. Ward rushed for over 100 yards to lead Houston to a hard fought win over Cincinnati.

 

10. Matt Johnson – QB Bowling Green: 291-421 69.1% 3,955 yards 36 TD 4 INT 3 rushing TD. LW 10.

A 5,000 yard passing season will open some voters eyes and Johnson seems to be well on his way.

 

Honorable Mention:Tyler Matakevich, LB, Temple;  Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame; Devontae Booker, RB, Utah;  Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M; Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State and Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State.
