Top Five Candidates

1. Joe Burrow

QB | LSU                                                      Next Game: 11/09 at Alabama

Burrow took advantage of his opportunities in the Tigers 23-20 win over Auburn on Saturday. He had his lowest output on the season in terms of touchdowns through the air with just one. However, he continued his efficient season in completing 32 of 42 passes. Burrow has still completed an incredible 79% of his passes this season. The Tigers have the week off before the game of the year against Alabama.

2. Justin Fields

QB | Ohio State                                                      Next Game: 11/09 vs Maryland

Fields is an interesting story this season for the Buckeyes. His statistics are not on the same level as his counterparts. But, he has just one interception. Is Fields changing the mode to more of a game manager at Ohio State this season? With how well the defense is playing and the running game going strong that may be all they need Fields to be.

3. Jalen Hurts

QB | Oklahoma                                                      Next Game: 11/09 vs Iowa State

How quickly things change. Hurts was the leader for the Heisman and the Sooners were in firm control of their own destiny. Now, both are in a precarious position. However, Hurts did everything he could to keep the Sooners in the game with nearly 500 yards of total offense and four touchdowns with no turnovers. Oklahoma has the weekend off before hosting Iowa State.

4. Tua Tagovailoa

QB | Alabama                                                           Next Game: 11/09 vs LSU

Tagovailoa continues to play the waiting game. The countdown is on to the likely one versus two matchup in a couple of weeks. The biggest question that lies ahead will be how healthy he will be heading into that game. If Tagovailoa wins and plays well, he likely reclaims the top spot

5. Chase Young

DE | Ohio State                                                      Next Game: 11/09 vs Maryland

Someone stop the presses. It’s 2019 and we have a defensive player in the top five of the Heisman rankings. This one is legitimate, folks. Young has been a terror for opposing offenses this year with 13.5 sacks on the season. Perhaps it’s quite appropriate that he replace Taylor in this spot partly because of his dominant play with six tackles and four sacks against the Badgers.
