Quarterbacks of the week

Luke Falk, Washington State, 92.4% of team’s offensive yards

  • 36-55, 497 yards, 5 TD, 1 INT vs Arizona State

James Summers, East Carolina, 90.9%

  • 14-22, 158 yards, 42 rush yards, 2 rush TD vs USF

DaMarcus Smith, North Texas, 88.3%

  • 25-45, 234 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 45 rush yards @ La Tech

Tanner Mangum, BYU, 86.0%

  • 23-37, 293 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT @ SJSU

Mitch Leidner, Minnesota, 85.4%

  • 27-44, 281 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT @ Ohio State

John Fadule, Boston College, 85.3%

  • 23-37, 257 yards, 1 TD, 3 INT vs NC State

Anu Solomon, Arizona, 85.0%

  • 31-46, 352 yards, 3 TD, 1 INT @ USC

Gunner Kiel, Cincinnati, 84.7%

  • 28-51, 523 yards, 4 TD, 2 INT @ Houston

Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State, 82.9%

  • 16-24, 352 yards, 5 TD, 26 rush yards vs TCU

David Washington, Old Dominion, 81.6%

  • 29-48, 378 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT, 69 rush yards @ UTSA

Dak Prescott, Mississippi State, 81.4%

  • 27-40, 303 yards, 4 TD, 47 rush yards @ Missouri

Gunner Kiel has gone bananas in two straight games. I haven’t really watched him play yet this year, but I’ve heard some good things about him. He could be a sneaky late-climber in a potential QB class that’s grasping at straws right now… Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma State proved they were legit with a big win against TCU last weekend. That team (and I guess Ohio State) is one of the rare cases of a quarterback rotation working well on the college level. Props to Rudolph and J.W. Walsh for making that work… Boston College’s John Fadule is back for a second straight week. You’d think they would ask a freshman quarterback to do less, not more, but he’s been carrying that team lately.

Seasonal QB Leaders

Luke Falk, Washington State, 81.0% of team’s offensive yards

  • 6’4, 205lbs, Sophomore

Garrett Smith, Louisiana-Monroe, 76.9%

  • 6’0, 211lbs, Freshman

Nick Arbuckle, Georgia State, 76.6%

  • 6’1, 215lbs, Senior

Cooper Rush, Central Michigan, 74.7%

  • 6’3, 227lbs, Junior

Matt Johnson, Bowling Green, 72.0%

  • 6’0, 219lbs, Senior

Bryant Shirreffs, Connecticut, 71.6%

  • 6’2, 220lbs, Sophomore

Trevone Boykin, TCU, 71.0%

  • 6’2, 205lbs, Senior

Dak Prescott, Mississippi State, 69.4%

  • 6’2, 230lbs, Senior

Alex McGough, FIU, 69.4%

  • 6’3, 218lbs, Sophomore

Riley Neal, Ball State, 69.0%

  • 6’5, 217lbs, Freshman

Dak Prescott, your table is ready. This weekend the Mississippi State senior gets Alabama at home in what could be the culminating moment of his career and vault him into the Heisman top five. He almost perfectly fits the historical Heisman prototype for dual-threat quarterbacks… Luke Falk is having some kind of season. I haven’t run the numbers against historical Mike Leach quarterbacks, but it’s hard to imagine that anyone could have accounted for a higher percentage of the offense than Falk is this year… Even with the loss, I think Trevone Boykin still has Heisman life. He is everything for that offense.

Running Backs of the week

Ralph Webb, Vanderbilt, 67.4% of team’s offensive yards

  • 22 carries, 118 yards, 1 TD @ Florida

Paul Harris, Hawaii, 57.1%

  • 20 carries, 190 yards, 1 TD, 2 rec., 26 rec. yards @ UNLV

Larry Rose III, New Mexico State, 55.4%

  • 31 carries, 207 yards, 2 TD, 2 rec., 85 rec. yards, 1 rec. TD @ Texas State

Dalvin Cook, Florida State, 54.8%

  • 21 carries, 194 yards, 1 TD, 1 rec., 4 rec. yards @ Clemson

Devontae Booker, Utah, 49.4%

  • 34 carries, 150 yards, 1 TD, 2 rec., 21 rec. yards @ Washington

Justin Jackson, Northwestern, 49.2%

  • 28 carries, 186 yards, 1 rec., 9 rec. yards vs Penn State

Derrick Henry, Alabama, 48.4%

  • 38 carries, 210 yards, 3 TD vs LSU

Saquon Barkley (SQBK), Penn State, 47.0%

  • 25 carries, 120 yards, 2 TD, 6 rec., 50 rec. yards @ Northwestern

Jordan Howard, Indiana, 46.4%

  • 22 carries, 174 yards, 2 TD, 2 rec., 15 rec. yards vs Iowa

DeAndre Washington, Texas Tech, 43.9%

  • 21 carries, 102 yards, 6 rec., 64 rec. yards, 1 rec. TD @ WVU

Ralph Webb is back for the second week in a row after he single handedly carried the Vanderbilt offense to a near upset of the Gators… Justin Jackson and Derrick Henry used their massive performances over the weekend to vault into the seasonal leaderboard, which we’ll get to in a minute… Jordan Howard, a prospect I love and who is finally healthy again, had 174 rush yards against an Iowa defense that hadn’t allowed any other running back to surpass 75 yards all season.

Seasonal RB Leaders

Dalvin Cook, Florida State, 42.7% of team’s offensive yards

  • 5’11, 202lbs, Sophomore

Devontae Booker, Utah, 41.9%

  • 6’1, 212lbs, Senior

Leonard Fournette, LSU, 41.8%

  • 6’1, 230lbs, Sophomore

Tyler Ervin, San Jose State, 41.7%

  • 5’10, 177lbs, Senior

Donnel Pumphrey, San Diego State, 40.8%

  • 5’9, 180lbs, Junior

Larry Rose III, New Mexico State, 40.5%

  • 5’11, 184lbs, Sophomore

Brian Hill, Wyoming, 40.0%

  • 6’1, 211lbs, Sophomore

Christian McCaffrey, Stanford, 39.3%

  • 6’0, 201lbs, Sophomore

Jahad Thomas, Temple, 36.1%

  • 5’10, 180lbs, Junior

Ray Lawry, Old Dominion, 35.6%

  • 5’10, 201lbs, Sophomore

Justin Jackson, Northwestern, 34.9%

  • 5’11, 190lbs, Sophomore

Derrick Henry, Alabama, 34.7%

  • 6’3, 242lbs, Junior

Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio State, 34.5%

  • 6’0, 225lbs, Junior

Saquon Barkley, Penn State, 34.2%

  • 5’11, 222lbs, Freshman

What an amazing year for the running back position! This week Derrick Henry joins the mix after his breathtaking performance against LSU. It feels like the production has finally caught up with the hype and the result is a beautiful thing… Meanwhile, Leonard Fournette, for the first time since I’ve been doing this (I think), has fallen from the top spot… Dalvin Cook, Devontae Booker move up after great performances over the weekend… Saquon Barkley, man, I’m telling you. LOOK OUT!

Wide Receivers of the Week

Delane Hart-Johnson, New Mexico, 82.7%

  • 1 reception, 86 yards, 1 TD vs Utah State

Hasaan Henderson, Nevada, 66.0%

  • 5 rec., 136 yards, 1 TD @ Fresno State

Demarcus Robinson, Florida, 64.2%

  • 9 rec., 106 yards vs Vanderbilt

Al Riles, UL-Lafayette, 63.6%

  • 8 rec., 103 yards, 1 TD, 4 rush yards @ Georgia State

Jared Murphy, Miami OH, 60.7%

  • 7 rec., 91 yards, 2 TD vs Eastern Michigan

Travin Dural, LSU, 60.2%

  • 2 rec., 77 yards, 1 TD @ Alabama

Will Fuller, Notre Dame, 58.0%

  • 7 rec., 152 yards, 3 TD @ Pittsburgh

Malcolm Mitchell, Georgia, 57.8%

  • 4 rec., 52 yards vs Kentucky

Marcus Green, UL-Monroe, 56.9%

  • 12 rec., 149 yards, 1 TD, 13 ret. yards @ Troy

JuJu Smith-Schuster, USC, 56.8%

  • 8 rec., 138 yards, 1 TD vs Arizona

Demarcus Robinson is a guy I reallly liked last year in a floundering Florida offense. I thought maybe he could become Jim McElwain’s “new Rashard Higgins” this year, but it hasn’t been quite that seamless. All the same, he’s a strong player and could be a sneaky good addition to the 2016 draft class… Meanwhile, Will Fuller continues to maul defenses with no remorse. Since the start of last season, he has caught 27 of Notre Dame’s 50 touchdowns despite being just 6’0 180lbs….  Hasaan Henderson is a name to file away for later. He’s 6’5 220lbs and has 35% of Nevada’s receiving yards this season in a limited passing offense.

Seasonal WR Leaders

Dezmon Epps, Idaho, 47.2% of receiving yards

  • 5’10, 175lbs, Senior

Tanner Gentry, Wyoming, 43.6%

  • 6’2, 201lbs, Junior

Leonte Carroo, Rutgers, 42.7%

  • 6’1, 215lbs, Senior

Corey Coleman, Baylor, 41.3%

  • 5’11, 190lbs, Junior

Carlos Harris, North Texas, 41.2%

  • 5’8, 185lbs, Senior

Aaron Burbridge, Michigan State, 41.1%

  • 6’1, 208lbs, Senior

Travin Dural, LSU, 41.0%

  • 6’2, 203lbs, Junior

Tyler Boyd, Pittsburgh, 40.0%

  • 6’2, 200lbs, Junior

Daniel Braverman, Western Michigan, 40.0%

  • 5’10, 177lbs, Junior

JuJu Smith-Schuster, USC, 39.8%

  • 6’2, 215lbs, Sophomore

Tajae Sharpe, UMass, 39.2%

  • 6’3, 188lbs, Senior

Corey Coleman DGAF who his quarterback is; he just keeps mauling. To see a guy rank fourth national in market share of yards AND lead the country in touchdowns is a pretty special combination…. Travin Dural hasn’t got much attention for the LSU offense this year, but he’s putting together a solid, Rueben Randle-esque college season in which he has great market share, but poor raw production. The body types are similar too… Finally, JuJu Smith-Schuster is incredible. This kid might be the single best receiver prospect in college football – yes, even above Treadwell. I think he’s deserving of finishing in the top 10 of the Heisman vote.

Tight Ends of the week

Sam Dobbs, Vanderbilt, 70.0% of team’s receiving yards

  • 1 reception, 21 yards @ Florida

Bryce Williams, East Carolina, 53.8%

  • 6 rec., 85 yards vs USF

Kivon Cartwright, Colorado State, 46.7%

  • 4 rec., 56 yards @ Wyoming

Billy Freeman, SJSU, 45.6%

  • 6 rec., 67 yards vs BYU

Cody Tuttle, Eastern Michigan, 41.6%

  • 2 rec., 37 yards @ Miami OH

Hayden Plinke, UTEP, 36.8%

  • 9 rec., 85 yards vs Rice

Trey Scott, Tulane, 35.8%

  • 2 rec., 38 yards vs UConn

Rodney Mills, UMass, 35.8%

  • 6 rec., 62 yards vs Akron

Terry Pettis, MTSU, 35.7%

  • 5 rec., 126 yards, 1 TD vs Marshall

Deon Watson, Idaho, 34.4%

  • 7 rec., 109 yards, 2 TD @ South Alabama

Jordan Leggett, Clemson, 34%

  • 6 rec., 101 yards vs Florida State

Bryce Williams is a guy that Chris Burke singled out on last week’s On The Clock podcast, which he was kind enough to invite me to join. He hasn’t made much noise in this space, but he could be another nice piece of the 2016 class… Also, Jordan Leggett has been really good for Clemson this year. He’s got the size and production I like to see.

Seasonal TE Leaders

Jaylen Samuels, NC State, 25.0% of team’s receiving yards

  • 5’11, 236lbs, Sophomore

Gerald Everett, South Alabama, 24.8%

  • 6’4, 225lbs, Junior

Rodney Mills, UMass, 24.6%

  • 6’1, 205lbs, Senior

David Morgan II, UTSA, 24.1%

  • 6’4, 260lbs, Senior

Dan Vitale, Northwestern, 23.7%

  • 6’2, 235lbs, Senior

Jake Butt, Michigan, 23.1%

  • 6’6, 248lbs, Junior

Bucky Hodges, Virginia Tech, 22.4%

  • 6’7, 241lbs, R-Sophomore

Matt Weiser, Buffalo, 21.8%

  • 6’5, 255lbs, Senior

Austin Hooper, Stanford, 21.4%

  • 6’4, 248lbs, Junior

There’s not a whole lot of shakeup in this list, but I’m starting to get excited for how good this TE draft class could be. Underclassmen like Hooper, Butt, Cam Serigne, Hodges, Hunter Henry, Jordan Leggett mixed in with senior like David Morgan and Matt Weiser could make for a fun draft class. Comparatively, tight end was really week last year.

Special Teams Studs of the week

Janarion Grant, Rutgers, WR, 237 return yards, 1 ret. TD, 3 rec., 26 rec. yards @ Michigan

Braeden West, SMU, RB, 180 ret. yards, 1 ret. TD, 1 rec., 45 rec. yards vs Temple

Aregeros Turner, Northern Illinois, WR, 168 ret. yards, 2 rec., 21 rec. yards @ Toledo

Tre Johnson, North Texas, RB, 168 ret. yards @ La Tech

KaVontae Turpin, TCU, WR, 153 ret. yards, 7 rec., 107 rec. yards, 4 rush, 22 rush yards @ Oklahoma State

Keelan Ewaliko, Hawaii, WR, 142 ret. yards @ UNLV

Xavier Johnson, South Alabama, RB, 141 ret. yards, 1 ret. TD, 9 rush., 148 rush. yards, 1 rush. TD vs Idaho

Tyrell Johnson, Arizona, WR, 139 ret. yards, 1 rec., 21 rec. yards @ USC

Jakeem Grant, Texas Tech, WR, 131 ret. yards, 5 rec., 8 rec. yards, 1 rec. TD @ WVU

Brisly Estime, Syracuse, WR, 130 ret. yards, 1 rec., 36 rec. yards @ Louisville

Three players return from last week: Keelan, Jakeem and Braeden. Keelan Ewaliko is interesting because he’s got more size than most return men at 5’11 200lbs. He’s listed as a receiver, but hasn’t contributed there yet… Braeden West, like Jakeem Grant, is a really small human being, especially for being a running back, but he certainly filled up the box score last week… KaVontae Turpin looks to be the only Horned Frog who enjoyed his trip to Stillwater.

Seasonal Special Teams Leaders

Janarion Grant, Rutgers, WR, 97.5% of team’s return yards

  • 5’11, 170lbs, Junior

Kylen Towner, Western Kentucky, WR, 92.6%

  • 5’8, 175lbs, Sophomore

Tyler Ervin, SJSU, RB, 90.6%

  • 5’10, 177lbs, Senior

Bishop Louie, Tulsa, WR, 88.1%

  • 5’10, 170lbs, Sophomore

Maurice Thomas, Miami OH, RB, 88.1%

  • 5’11, 176lb, Freshman

Brisly Estime, Syracuse, WR, 87.9%

  • 5’9, 178lbs, Junior

Jakeem Grant, Texas Tech, WR, 85.7%

  • 5’7, 168lbs, Senior

Teddy Ruben, Troy, WR, 85.6%

  • 5’7, 161lbs, Senior

KaVontae Turpin, TCU, WR, 84.6%

  • 5’9, 152lbs, Freshman

Derek Keaton, Georgia Southern, WR, 83.1%

  • 5’11, 185lbs, Senior

I mixed this one up this week. I had been tracking raw yardage production (toward the goal of finding hidden value), but decided to switch to market share to see who were the true return maestros. The two names that really stand out are Tyler Ervin, who is fourth in this category and fourth in the seasonal running back category. That dude does everything for SJSU… Also, Jakeem Grant is super small, but he’s awesome in all the ways you’d hope for him to be. Athleticism is going to be huge for him when we get to draft season.
