Heisman Watch: Week 5

by DJ Boyer on Oct. 7, 2015

Heisman Watch: Week 5

1. Leonard Fournette – RB LSU: 99 carries 864 yards 8.7 YPC 11 TD LW 1.

Yards per carry are usually going down for the top runners at this time of the year, not up.

 

2. Ezekiel Elliot – RB Ohio State: 100 carries 729 yards 7.3 YPC 8 TD 10 catches 63 yards. LW 4.

Long touchdown runs by Elliot is why this team is still undefeated after facing a scrappy Indiana squad.

 

3. Trevone Boykin – QB TCU: 119-188 64.7% 1,802 yards 19 TD 3 INT 53 carries 242 yards 4.6 YPC 2 TD. LW 3.

Nearly 400 yards of total offense and 5 touchdowns against the Longhorns was very impressive.

 

4. Nick Chubb - RB Georgia: 91 carries 745 yards 8.2 YPC 7 TD 4 catches 32 yards 1 TD. LW 2.

Can't blame the loss to Alabama on Chubb. He was as steady and dependable as usual.

 

5. Jared Goff – QB California: 125-178 70.2.0% 1,630 yards 15 TD 4 INT. LW 6.

Goff may be better in the pocket under duress than when he has time to set and throw.

 

6. Cody Kessler – QB USC: 89-122 73.0% 1,297 yards 15 TD 1 INT. LW 5.

Hard to argue with a 15/1 TD to INT ratio. Kessler has been flawless in a year after losing many weapons to the NFL and graduation.

 

7. Myles Garrett – DE Texas A&M: 25 tackles, 9.5 TFL 7.5 sacks 3 forced fumble. LW 8.

Continues to be the most unblockable end in the game.

 

8. Paxton Lynch – QB Memphis: 103-146 70.5% 1,535 yards 10TD 0 INT 36 carries 116 yards 1 TD. LW NR.

We have been talking Lynch up now for weeks as a draft dark horse with his size and precision.

 

9. Keenan Reynolds – QB Navy: 14-27 51.9% 265 yards 2TD 0 INT 87 carries 489 yards 9 TD. LW 7.

Game against Notre Dame will likely make or break his Heisman campaign.

 

 

10. Corey Coleman – WR Baylor: 24 catches 570 yards 23.8 YPC 11 TD.  LW NR.

Nearly half of Coleman's catches have been for touchdown.

 

Honorable Mention: Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida; Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame;  Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama; Tyler Matakevich, LB, Temple, Devontae Booker RB Utah, Robert Nkemdiche DE/DT Ole Miss and Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson.
