Power 5 +ND

 
  • The jury is still out on the Wake Forest passing game, but 5-foot-9 WR Greg Dortch was a nice surprise with 4-55-2.  Keep in mind that the competition was Presbyterian.
  • Minnesota RB Rodney Smith’s Week 1 performance vs Buffalo was underwhelming, but my biggest takeaway was the confirmation that Tyler Johnson is the Gophers’ top receiver.
  • Utah’s offense looks as if it will go through three players; QB Tyler Huntley, RB Zack Moss, and WR Darren Carrington.  All three guys should be on a roster come Week 2.
  • Any more James Washington hernia concerns still out there?  Good.  I’m sure those questions have shifted to Jalen McCleskey (1-0-0) .  Ugh!  McCleskey’s owners are already eying Marcell Ateman (4-75-0).
  • I’m good with Devwah Whaley and Fr Chase Hayden getting most of the carries at Arkansas, but David Williams stealing TDs could become problematic. 
  • Not sure what will happen at the Indiana RB spot, but WR Simmie Cobbs is back (11-149-1) and how about Donoval Hale (5-67-0) and Luke Timian (10-72-0).
  • JK Dobbins vs Mike Weber has already been one of the more popular questions already received.  Both should be owned and it’s still too early to know.  It was quite entertaining how Parris Campbell emails went from ‘bust and drop questions’ to ‘imagine how great of a night it would have been had he not dropped a TD pass’.  That’s CFB!  Always a tale of two halves.

G5 + Indep.

 

  • Those of you who own CMU RB Devon Spaulding know about Jonathan Ward already, but if you do not, Ward’s rushing totals (19-147-1) were considerably better than Spaulding’s (20-70-1).  WR Corey Willis had 8 receptions for 43 yards, which was disappointing, especially when you compare his avg. yards per catch (5.4) to Ward’s yards per rush (7.7).  It may be a little premature to assume Shane Morris has the QB position on lock because it did take 2OTs for the Chippewas to defeat Rhode Island.
  • Prior to Week 1, only twice in Cincinnati RB Mike Boone’s career had he carried the ball at least 19 times in a game.  He had 19 carries in the first game of the season, which is a good sign.
  • Any hope that I had for Georgia State WR Penny Hart was squashed after a 5-36-0 performance in a 17-10 loss to Tennessee State.
  • Toledo scored 47 points and QB Logan Woodside passed for 300-plus yards, but he surprisingly did not throw a TD pass.  Last year, Woodside had 3 or more TD passes in 12 of 13 games and at least 2 TD passes in every game.  Terry Swanson is the Rockets’ No. 1 RB, but keep an eye on Art Thompkins.  WR Diontae Johnson may just as valuable, if not more, than Jon’Vea Johnson.
  • Uncertainty looms at the QB position at UConn, but RB Nate Hopkins (20-130-3) made us forget about Arkeel Newsome already.  We also got confirmation on Hergy Mayala as WR1 (9-106-1).
  • It seems as if Chad President will get the nod moving forward at Tulsa.  RB Corey Taylor’s performance was not a fluke (20-111-2).  He should already be on a roster, but if not……
