Lamar Jackson ... gone.
Josh Rosen ... likely gone.
Sam Darnold ... never been in it. Yet.
Three of the top Heisman candidates entering the season, less than a month into the 2017 campaign, well, keeping it real, they're really not right now.
Not here at least.
Can't be disappearing as Jackson, the reigning award holder, did against Clemson – no matter how good Clemson is on D – or imploding as Rosen did at Memphis.
Darnold? Yo, dude has 6 interceptions in just three games. C'mon, get real. Don't care if the kid if being talked about as the possible No. 1 pick in next spring's NFL Draft. He's not worthy of being in the discussion for college football's best player this season.
Definitely not our Super Six. These guys do, though ... for this week:
Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma QB. Flag plants and Katy Perry complaints notwithstanding, he's a tough one to knock. Thus far has thrown for 1,046 yards and 10 TDs on just 82 passing attempts. Newsflash: That's insane. His “worst” game so far was that 386-yard, 3-TD effort at Ohio State. Gulp.
Mason Rudolph, Oklahoma State QB. Was only a matter of time before the big dude cracked this lineup. Merely needed a 497-yard, 5-TD aerial effort in a 59-21 romp at Pittsburgh is all. Kidding aside, he's clearly legit with 1,135 yards and 11 TDs in just three games.
Saquon Barkley, Penn State RB. Hasn't gone off for anything crazy this season thus far, but he is averaging better than 100 yards rushing and 80 yards receiving this season. Almost seems the coaching staff is hyper-focused on displaying the kid's all-around game for pro scouts right now.
Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State QB. Led the unranked Bulldogs to a 37-7 blowout of No. 12 LSU. He's not just a gatekeeper to the deal, though. Guy is on the most dangerous multi-threats out there. Posted 180 yards and 2 TDs throwing as well as 88 and 2 rushing. MSU now No. 17 in nation.
Quincy Roche, Temple DE. The freshman racked up 8 tackles, 3 of 'em coming on sacks. He also forced a fumble and recovered it. If new head coach Geoff Collins could get the rest of his Owls to play at that level in the future, something special would get brewing on North Broad in Philly.
Will Grier, West Virginia QB. Coming in behind the weekly token defensive pick on our list, still diggin' what this guy brings to the table. Gonna ride him all season. Special player. Meh game this past Saturday: 304 yards and 3 TDs passing.
