Heisman Watch: Week 9

by DJ Boyer on Nov. 5, 2015

Heisman Watch: Week 9

1. Leonard Fournette – RB LSU: 176 carries 1,352 yards 7.7 YPC 15 TD LW 1.

A week off and now what could be a Heisman-defining week against Alabama.

 

2. Trevone Boykin – QB TCU: 198-297 66.7% 2,927 yards 28 TD 5 INT 88 carries 526 yards 5.9 YPC 6 TD. LW 2.

Continuing to edge closer to Fournette.

 

3. Ezekiel Elliot – RB Ohio State: 167 carries 1,130 yards 6.8 YPC 13 TD 23 catches 160yards. LW 3.

With more quarterback changes the Buckeyes will be leaning on Elliot more than ever.

 

4. Paxton Lynch – QB Memphis: 200-285 70.5% 2,709 yards 18 TD 1 INT 53 carries 168 yards 2 TD. LW 4.

Lynch is now challenging Connor Cook to be the first QB off the board in the upcoming draft (providing he declares of course).

 

5. Corey Coleman – WR Baylor: 47 catches 962 yards 20.5 YPC 18 TD.  LW 5.

The injury to Seth Russell could actually help his Heisman campaign if he keeps performing.

 

6. Josh Doctson – WR TCU: 71 catches 1,250 yards 17.6 YPC 14 TD.  LW 6.

Doctson contiues with his monster production.

 

7. Greg Ward Jr.- QB Houston: 148-209 70.8% 1,955 yards 11 TD 2 INT 124 carries 710 yards 16 TD. LW 8.

Lowest passing total for a game this year....210 yards...highest passing total 275 yards. Remarkable consistency.

 

8. Dalvin Cook - RB Florida State: 127 carries 1,037 yards 8.2 YPC 11 TD 15catches 181 yards 1 TD. LW 7.

Cook is scheduled tyo play against Clemson in what could be the showdown for the ACC.

 

9. Tyler Matakevich – LB Temple: 78 tackles, 8 TFL 4 sacks 5 interceptions. LW 9.

Played well in defeat and scored another red zone interception.

 

10. Matt Johnson – QB Bowling Green: 268-380 70.5% 3,686 yards 33 TD 3 INT 3 rushing TD. LW 10.

Johnson has posted a QBR over 85 in four consecutive games and three of them he was over 90. Silly numbers.

 

Honorable Mention:Will Fuller, WR, Notre Dame;  Derrick Henry, RB, Alabama; Devontae Booker, RB, Utah;  Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M; Deshaun Watson, QB, Clemson; and Jared Goff, QB, Cal.
