Heisman stock rising for Ohio State QB Justin Fields
Another week of college football brought fans another great performance from Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields. Through two games, Fields has averaged 9.2 yards per pass with six passing touchdowns and three rushing scores.
With those numbers, his Heisman stock is rising according to 247Sports.
“Fields built on his season-opening performance with another strong outing against Cincinnati on Saturday, a game many thought could give the Buckeyes trouble,” Brad Crawford wrote at 247Sports. “After throwing two touchdown passes and rushing for two more, Fields’ total QBR this season is now 93.6, third-best nationally.”
Overall, Fields is 38-for-50 with 458 passing yards. He also has 103 rushing yards this season. 247Sports ranks him fourth on their early-season Heisman list behind Jalen Hurts, Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa.
Joining Fields from the BIG on the 247Sports Heisman stock list Monday was Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor. He is averaging 6.8 yards per carry and has five rushing touchdowns through two games. Taylor came in at No. 6 on the 247Sports Heisman list.
