    1. Illinois' Donovonn Young - 6'0 - 218 lbs - JR - 87 OVR

    Stats: 6.3 AVG - 793 yds - 6 TDs --- 209 yds - 1 TD

    A great all around back for the Illini, Young carries the load and chips in through the air. He has yet to fumble and has helped his team to a 4-2 record. He is head and shoulders above #2 on this least so far through 5 weeks. He is simply the MVP of this team so far.


    2. Arkansas' Knike Davis - 6'0 - 229 lbs - SR(R) - 97 OVR

    Stats: 5.5 AVG - 502 yds - 6 TDs --- 151 yds - 1 TD

    Another great all around back with receiving skills. Davis could have gone pro last year but decided to stay and help his team make a run at the NCG. While not as efficient as Young he is his teams workhorse and takes pressure of his QB. If he can step up even more, this team will be the favorite for the NCG.


    3. Bama's Jalston Fowler - 6'1 - 247 lbs - SR - 92 OVR

    Stats: 6.4 AVG - 412 yds - 4 TDs --- 222 yds - 2 TD

    A supreme power back that can also catch, Fowler is a great safety blanket and time grinder for the Tide. If he's given more carries, he can lead the nation in rushing. He has not been given a full workload due to poor competition through the first 5 weeks. The Tide will need him to continue to produce against a tough SEC schedule.


    Others to watch:

    SC's Marcus Lattimore is tied with the top 2 with 6 TDs but is behind all of them in effciency with a 5.0 AVG. While he has contributed some in the passing game, he isn't as dangerous as the others despite his out of this world physical skill set.

    Stan's Anthony Wilkerson is close to tops in efficiency with a 6.3 AVG he has gotten to the endzone 4 times but contributes nearly nothing in the passing game. He's a solid workhorse, but isn't nearly as useful on long 3rd downs.

    Week 14

    1. Bama's Jalston Fowler - 6'1 - 247 lbs - SR - 92 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 6.1 AVG - 1466 yds - 13 TDs --- 322 yds - 2 TD​

    Fowler has really stepped up for the Tide behind AJ McCarron. Coach Screw isn't sure if its the pass that opens the run game or vic versa, all he cares is that the balanced gameplan works. Fowler routinely pushed the pile forward and turns a 2 yd loss into a 3 yd gain with his power. Its not hard to see why He's leading the Heisman race.​

    2. Illinois' Donovonn Young - 6'0 - 218 lbs - JR - 87 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 5.6 AVG - 1420 yds - 14 TDs --- 240 yds - 1 TD​

    A great all around back for the Illini, Young carries the load and chips in through the air. He has slowed down from his previous pace but is still a great workhorse for the Illini offense.​
    This 3rd spot is a tough one...do TD's matter more? yards? average?​

    3. DeAnthony Thomas - 5'9 - 175 lbs - JR - 94 OVR


    [​IMG]
    Stats: 5.2 AVG - 1039 yds - 15 TDs --- 245 yds - 3 TDs​

    Thomas is a lean, mean, speed machine. He has a very slight frame but has yet to miss a game to injury and has never fumbled. He is a homerun threat each time he gets the ball. He has a low AVG, but the most TDs among users and is an asset in the passing game.​

    So close to Top 3 Consideration:​

    SC's Marcus Lattimore​

    Stan's Anthony Wilkerson​
    Wisc's James White​
