QUARTERBACK: Jeff Tuel QB WSU170 - 244 for 2301 yards 18 touchdowns 12 interceptions 69.7% completion When looking at t he statistics this year, two MLE user Quarterbacks stand above the rest in my mind. We have some guys who are putting up insane yards (Seth Doege, James Franklin) but aren't winning consistently enough yet. Other guys are on fire right now like Cole Stoudt and Tyler Russell. Then you look at a guy like the Senior QB out of Washington State, Jeff Tuel. Through 7 games the guy has over 2300 yards and 18 touchdowns on a team without much true talent. He has guided this squad to a 7-0 record including big wins over Nebraska and Oregon. If Washington keeps winning, their is no reason Tuel shouldn't be at least in the running for the Heisman trophy. His NFL draft stock is rising at a ridiculous pace right now. RUNNING BACK: Silas Redd HB PSU98 ATT 743 YDS 6 TDS Running games have been going pretty strong for MLE users so far. Mississippi State leads the NCAA in rushing, but because of split carries between 4 different backs throughout the season, Silas Redd has a big lead in top rusher. Redd's yards per average is amazing at 8.4, and he is averaging just under a touchdown a game on the ground. He and Paul Jones have really started to figure it out together offensively. Quick shout out to Rex Burkhead, who leads MLE in rushing touchdowns at 9. Impressive year for the Corn Husker Senior outa Midland, Texas. Keep at it! WIDE RECEIVER:TJ MOE WR MIZZOU37 REC 825 YDS 9 TDS What a year for Moe. He might be 16 receptions shy of current leader Marquess Wilson (who by the way is having a special year also) but is only 3 yards off his pace. Yes, I repeat. He has 16 less receptions and only 3 less yards. Moe is catching balls at an incredible 22.29 yards per reception. That is insane, folks. Big win for Mizzou against Bama last week, lets see if Moe and the Tigers can keep it rolling. TIGHT END:MALCOLM JOHNSON TE MSU18 REC 322 YDS 3 TDS Big year for Mississippi State, and a big year for the sophomore tight end Malcolm Johnson. Not only does he lead MLE tight ends in yards and tied for touchdowns with WSU's Andrei Lintz, he has been a MONSTER in the run game. I am talking 5-6 pancakes a game monster. Who knew he had it in him? Not me. DEFENSIVE PLAYERS:GLENN CARSON MLB PSU25 solo tackles, 6 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions, 3 forced fumbles This guy is a monster. His tackle numbers are solid, as are his tackle for loss stats. What really sets him apart is his aptitude to change a game, whether it be a big sack, interception or forced fumble. Amazing year for Carson who will for sure be an NFL player once he graduates from Happy Valley. Good thing for Penn State he is only a junior. WILL COMPTON MLB NEBRASKA29 solo tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, 1 forced fumble Yes, ladies and gentlemen, a MIDDLE LINEBACKER is leading the nation in sacks and it ISN'T EVEN CLOSE. Compton is having a heisman-type campaign, seemingly getting into the backfield whenever he wants. He leads the nation in tackles for loss and is tied for 4th in tackles to go along with his nation-leading 8 sacks. Nothing much else to say but WOW.
