Well, Leonard Fournette will not be going to New York this year to compete for the Heisman Trophy. LSU Fournette was not invited, but he finished 3rd in rushing behind Alabama’s Derrick Henry and Christian McCaffrey, at 1,747, 2 games less than the top two finishers. I must say Henry did not play against the Alabama Defense so there’s an extra 200 yards that Fournette missed out on. I am not knocking McCaffrey or the PAC 12 but the Pac 12 does not play alot of defense, and the ACC doesn’t play defense as well, Exhibit A, Clemson giving up 37 points to North Carolina, in the ACC Title Game, the last 5 games Clemson’s defense has giving up 35 points per game. Fournette should have been invited because of his 1,747 rushing yards, and 18 touchdowns. McCaffrey has good rushing yards, but he has only made it into the endzone 8 times, also DeShaun Watson is not even a top 10 quarterback with his stats, actually he is no.16th in the Nation in passing. I believe overall Henry will win but Fournette is a better Heisman Candidate than DeShaun Watson, both the ACC and Pac 12 gives up alot of yards and do not play defense. Christian McCaffrey does hold the record for all-purpose offense yards with 3,250, who eclipsed Barry Sanders. If I had to pick a winner I am gonna go with Christian McCaffrey to win the Heisman because he surpassed Barry Sanders of all time purpose yards.
