WarGhost's CFB Players to Watch 2016-17

Here are my top 3 CFB players to watch this season.

 

1) Leonard Fournette, LSU, RB

I love Leonard. I have since I first saw his High School Highlight Reel. The kid is something special. He had an amazing year last season. I believe this year he will do even better. Yes, better. How could he be better than he is? I don't know, but watch out. Don't be surprised if he breaks Barry Sanders record of 2628 rushing yards and breaks 30 touchdowns. This kid may have a high floor, but I don't think he's even come close to his ceiling yet.

 

2) Kavontae Turpin, TCU, WR/KR/HB

Yes, I have him labelled as a HB as well. You may be thinking "He's to small", but just look at LA Rams WR/RB Tavon Austin. He's only a tad bit bigger, yet he torches defenses from the backfield. I envision Turpin as a smaller, more elusive Austin. This kid is dangerous with the ball. Now that he's out from behind the shadow of Josh Doctson. He will be a top target on the team and will end up torching everyone. EVERYONE....

 

3) Deshaun Watson, Clemson, QB

How can you create a list like this and leave out the electric Watson. He may not get better this year, but that's only because it's pretty hard to do better than he did last season. The kid can throw dots and run like a track star. He gets it done no matter how it has to happen. I'm going to put the Heisman trophy between these Fournette and Watson at the moment. It may change later in the year, but these are consistently the top two options on EVERYONE'S Heisman Watch boards. 

 

Needless to say, I'm excited to watch this season of CFB!!! Let me know who you like in the comments. Thanks for the read!!

Watson is a great kid, I realize I'm late to this but McCaffrey and Lamar Jackson look to be Heisman hopefuls as well.

    • Watch Out for a Team on the Rise When a window of opportunity closes, darkness soon follows. That’s why the NFL is said to be cyclical. Most teams go through periods of winning and losing. Some teams, like Detroit, tend to have more darkness than others. When looking for a dynasty, it tends to come from a team that just suffered a dark period.   This article is a little bit lengthy, but it is still an interesting read, especially right now during the slow part of the season. I kind of wanted to put this in the Colts section and talk about our chances, but there are also other teams that have potential for it now too (I'm thinking the Cowboys or Raiders). A lot has changed since this article was written. And a lot can still change.    https://www.google.com/amp/s/syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/1647939-which-nfl-franchise-is-developing-into-the-next-dynasty.amp.html   "New England fared the best with three consecutive playoff appearances in 1996-98. But the team was 13-19 (.406) the next two seasons with no real expectations in 2001."   Remind you of anyone? 
    •   Give him another year.  He's played three or four positions in the last four years.  Landon Collins was bad his first year, some called him a bust.     I agree, he was a stretch at that draft position but hindsight....
    •   It would take 3 SB appearances and at least 2 more wins before we were considered anything remotely respectable to the analysts and media.   which I can't say shouldn't be that way.  This is the era that the colts will have those multiple SB wins. It is time we join the dynasty's in the NFL. Irsay knows this and I'm sure Ballard does too.    Andrew won't be here forever. 
    • Score to note   Louisvill(Ky.) Trinity 31-3 6A #1 Carmel
    • Most long-time Colts fans are used to this time of year.   It's just another trip around the same block with stops at Injury Mart and Panic Outlet before we get to go enjoy ourselves on Excitement Strip.   This time of year isn't exciting, it's interesting and nerve-wracking.  We just have to be patient and hope we have something to be really excited about in a few months.
