2016: Edition #1 With the first four weeks of the season out of the way, let's take a look at who is making a splash early. Stats won't be that impressive as teams have had Byes and have been beating up the CPU mostly. EMVP Illinois LOLB Chris Ingraham - 13 Tackles, 4 TFL, 2 Sacks, 1 INT, 1 FR His stats are the most impressive that jump out to me with even with one of their HBs having 11 TDs but I like a well rounded guy over one guy with a great singular stat. Indiana HB Phil Means - 71 Att, 500 yards, 7.0 YPC, 3 TD, 0 Fumbles, Long of 92, 12 KR, 367 yards, 2 PR, 21 yards I didn't even need to look through the roster for this one, but a big injury to this guy has him out for four weeks and that will surely hurt his stats and chance at winning this award. Michigan MLB Joe Bolden - 18 Tackles, 6 TFL, 1 Sack Chose this guy for his high tackle amount and the fact that a good chunk was in the backfield. In this run crazy league you need someone who can wrap them up. Michigan State SS Demetrious Cox - 17 Tackles, 4 TFL, 1 Sack Not unheard of for the SS to be getting tackles behind the line but for my defense it is. With my new 3-4 defense, it's nice to have an extra tackler to help out. Northwestern MLB Ifeadi Odenigbo - 30 Tackles, 10 TFL, 1 Sack, 1 INT Wow. 1/3 of his tackles are behind the line, nearly twice as many as I've seen so far. Coach Hova mentioned his impressive skills and they are showing. Penn State HB Akeel Lynch - 69 Att, 544 yards, 7.9 YPC, 11 TD, Long of 56 Two less carries than Means but more yardage and averaging more YPC. Looks like Coach Fmode figured out how to run his offense. Good things are coming from this kid. Purdue MLB Jerome Welsh - 20 Tackles, 4 TFL Can't always have a Boilermaker on the Oopsman. This kid looks sharp, let's hope he can keep Purdue in ball games this year. Wisconsin MLB Garret Dooley - 17 Tackles, 8 TFL, 2 Sacks Seems like all of these LB like hanging out in the backfield. Get some more plays in coverage and this guy will be more of a favorite. **Disclaimer** Just because your team/player doesn't show up doesn't mean I haven't seem some potentials. As stated above, I like balanced players. If you truly want someone on the list, let me know and I will watch them until Week 8 when Edition #2 comes out. Freshman of the Year and Oopsman will come later. Please list ONE nominee for FOTY and Oopsman will come in Edition #2 (I'll give a little time for people to work out the kinks).
