Lamar Jackson is the best player in college football. Hands down. He leads the country in offense, and as UofL Football’s twitter points out, it is not even close. #LamarForHeisman
Through the first 11 weeks of the college football season, wide receivers across the country have gone above and beyond to help pack their quarterback’s stats, as well as their own. Seth Dawkins and Dez Fitzpatrick have some of the highest passer ratings when targeted thus far in the ACC. PFF helps break down the numbers.
He’s backkkkkk. After somehow falling from the rankings for a few weeks, Lamar Jackson has made his rightful return to the Heisman rankings. With just a few more weeks left to play, it will be interesting to see where the reigning Heisman winner lands.
